Ronald M emails:
I visited St Marys City during the reunion, and they have a wonderful web page as well. The Smithsonian currently has a display of Jamestown and St Marys City artifacts, including the lead coffin and skeletal remains of Lady Calvert, including a reconstruction of her facial features and a computerized avatar of her. These would be worthwhile additions to your site. Also, I’m dismayed that Holy Cross cemetery no longer knows the interment location of Basil Hayden and some others from the league. Perhaps a section calling for cemetery photos and family records would be helpful towards pursuing a professional survey of Holy Cross and other neglected burials. [Ed. note: please contact Ronald directly if you have information about Holy Cross Cemetery (Marion County, KY) or can help: molohaninsac -at- netscape.net]
Can anyone send us links for Holy Cross cemetery in Kentucky.
These are what we can find for Holy Cross cemetery in Kentucky: GraveAddiction, FindAGrave (here is what they have for Basil Hayden, Sr. and this entry says there is no marker on his grave), USGenWeb. My Kentucky Geneaology and Hearthstone Legacy Publications have some Marion County links but nothing specific to Holy Cross. Also see The Roman Catholic Diocese of Owensboro, Kentucky, by Turner Publishing Company, on Google Books.
Written In Bone: Forensic Files Of The 17th-Century Chesapeake, is an exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, running through January 6, 2013.

And when sending us info, it is a real time saver if you can send us the Internet/web links to those items. Thanks.
