Thank you so much for the Rambler article about connections and background with the Temple Smith home. That area around Towlston Grange, the Old Union Church and Bellview Road has a lot of fengshui. Isn't it possible that the Old Union Church is itself the remnant of Jeremiah Moore's Difficult Run Baptist church? Time to break out the historical markers.AlPol.

Rev Luther M Nesmith
Luther Melanethon Nesmith is, I believe, my 1st cousin 2x removed Find A Grave Memorial# 72087549

Do you or anyone else have any information about his background? My records show a Luther M Nesmith in Ohio in the 1910s.

Per the Ohio Nesmith was a minister, elocutionist, chiropractor and a few other shady things.

I can't imagine that there are two of them but I'd like to rule out that possibility, however remote, because he was quite a character. Thanks, Ephraim

Adding photos to yours
Hi, Audrey, I have been doing some research and am taking some photos of stones you already took, but I been foiling them to bring out the writing more clearly. I been adding them to your photos you already posted for these people. I assume you do not mind my doing so as it just clarifies what you already posted. If an issue please let me know, thanks Rich

Thanks for the clear photo. It helped me a lot and gave me an alternative possible birth date for her husband.

Find A Grave Memorial# 19986634


First of all, thank you for your tireless efforts and contribution to history and recording the last resting place of so many people.

You took a photo of the headstone of my 4x great grandfather, James Robinson.

In addition to doing the genealogical research of my family, I am a writer and working on a book. I would like your permission to use you photo. I would like to post it on on his profile, and may end up using it in the book, on the web, and/or on speaking engagements.

Would you please contact me and give me permission. I would, of course, always give you credit. I would also need your last name, unless you wanted it credited as Audrey, a member of Find A Grave.

My direct email is

Thank you so much. Penny (Jennings)Taylor

John Madden #19870215
Is the following a tribute that you would consider using on John Madden's memorial page? It seems too long for a floral tribute.

He was all of 6 foot, 5 inches tall, weighed approximately 270 pounds of all muscle, and with a voice that would have destroyed a microphone if we could have located one. We called him “The Game Warden”. As an elementary student in that one room country school house, I thought he was the Game Warden because of his stature and voice qualified him for the position. Looking back, with those physical criteria, he qualified for the Missouri State Director of all Game Wardens.

John Madden was one of only two that made the trip from Carrollton to our one room country school in the far North West corner of Carroll County. Beside the game warden, only the County School Superintendent, John Burnsides, knew how to drive the gravel and dirt roads to find Pleasant Valley, Public School District No. 36 located on Turkey Creek.

John Madden brought with him wonderful films about deer, turkey, quail, and conservation (what ever that was). The one room country school house was always warm because of the crowd of people that came in the evenings to see the two large metal reels and projector that accompanied him on his many trips.

It is likely John Madden was never awarded the outstanding conservationist of the year. He was just too busy driving all those dirt and gravel roads to small 4-H and community gatherings, changing tires, and catching the bad guys. He knew his county and even we kids knew “The Game Warden.”

He was a man who did his job and did it well!

I last visited with him in Palmyra, Missouri. My goal was to express gratitude for the effort and information that he brought to our little community; but my thanks was infusible. He was just doing his job.

Many years ago, I read a short blurb near the end of a monthly Missouri Conservationist magazine about an observation shared by John Madden. To me, it was a distilled summary of what he did with his life. It went something like this: a conservation agent had dynamited a beaver dam, only to find the next day; the busy creature had totally restored the structure. I could just hear the thunderous roar of John Madden’s laughter---from the one room country school through the anteroom, down the lane, up the road, and across Turkey Creek bridge.

Audrey - thank you so much for your consideration in transferring the memorial pages from Oakwood. My husband's family is so much more interesting to research - lot's of documentation; whereas my family were mostly farmers and not much of a paper trail. Thanks again!

Brown Neeter Haley
Hi, I believe that Brown Neeter Haley's birth date is 1890, from what I can see on the photo that I have recently posted from Fairview Cem., Culpeper, VA. He could have lived to be over 100 years old, but you may want to recheck the date.

Tks, Pam

RE: Aurelia Watkins
I agree with your assessment on Aurelia. I had a horrible time reading this particular grave and finally found a match when I was down to the last 7 or 8 graves in Trinity without pictures. I also agree that this grave is in Trinity...I have been trying to get about 50 graves moved from Christ Church over to Trinity. It really isn't anyone's fault, it is a large complex and the dividing lines are really only apparent if you know where to look!

Thanks for your help!

Hi Audrey,

Thank you for posting a photo of my grandparents gravesite. My dad was their son. Both my parents passed away earlier this year and I am planning a trip back to Virginia to spread some of their ashes... I am so grateful to know where my grandparents are buried so I can visit when I return to Virginia.

Much gratitude,
