RE: Southall Cemetary
I have been doing some research on the people buried in the two Southall Cemeteries. W.B. Southall who is listed on Findagrave is William Brewer Southall. His grandfather, mother and three of his siblings are buried in the cemetery across the road in the cornfield. The gravesites are dated 1850-1891, so it is older, but the two were also used at the same time. The information I have says that the cornfield cemetery was copied on Oct. 24, 1977. My mother visited in 1998 and could not find all of the headstones listed and said those remaining were laying flat on the ground. If you would like a copy of the information I have, I would be glad to send it to you.

Southall Cemetary
Mr. Parker,
My mother and I have been doing some research into the Southall Cemetery in Christian County, Kentucky. My mom visited a Southall Cemetery a number of years ago but the listings of the graves she was given at the library in Hopkinsville didn't match the listings on findagrave and the description was different although the directions were almost the same. By looking at her pictures and using Google earth I have come to the conclusion that there are actually two plots in the same area. One behind the house (that you have listed) and one across Simmons Lane to the west in an overgrown area in the middle of a corn field (that my mother visited). The first is at 3643'26.14" N 8740'02.98" W and the second at 3643'29.37" N 8740'16.70" W. Mom said that all of the headstones in the plot that she visited were laying flat on the ground. Just thought you might be interested. If you would like to have the listing that I have I can send it to you.

ps. the directions on Find-A-Grave say turn left onto Lonnie Walker Highway, but Lonnie Walker Highway only goes to the right when you are traveling south.

RE: Hill
How are you? Fine I you have any old old family pictures or stories, that I may ancestry is a free acct status..I really try to make their profiles nice,and I like to help others research.. I am on facebook, and I wonder if our DNA would match,since we are going in different direction on the branches..Elizabeth Betsey Hill, Sandy Hill's daughter,is my line,she married James Charles Suggs,her sister Jemina married his brother Andrew..I read John Calvin Hill's war story about his brother being shot and dying on their way home..the loyalty,and family love was amazing. It's a shame that many families don't have it today. I also have my dna kit on gedmatch. Have a nice day. Be safe.

RE: Petree and Huff Questions
Hi Richard,
Thank you for the reply. Apparently you had something to do with the Sarah Jane Donley Petree listing. Find A Grave Memorial# 29731712
Moreau Cemetery, Tipton, Moniteau Co., MO.,USA

Created by: Richard Parker
Record added: Sep 11, 2008

Sarah's daughter Mary Matilda Petree Huff (1886 - 1965)* would be part of my step-father's linage. Mary Matilda would be my step-dad's grandmother.

I stumbled (quite accidently) upon information regarding my step-fathers family. My step-father Carl Keith HUFF, age 83 is the s/o Wiley Z. HUFF (Find A Grave Memorial# 96696819) and his first wife: Mary Josephine Biggs (1909 - 1979) (nee:Mary J. Byerley)
Find A Grave Memorial# 36788448

Wiley was the s/o Mary Matilda "Tillie" Petree HUFF (Find A Grave Memorial# 52841141) Adams Memorial Cemetery, Bristle Ridge, Johnson Co., Missouri.

and her husband Arthur Huff (Find A Grave Memorial# 52841139).

I do not know how Find A Grave works exactly so I don't know if you are related or not?

My step-father Carl K. Huff, is currently 83 yrs. old. As a child he was shipped around a lot as his parents divorced and his father traveled a lot for work purposes. Wiley "may have" been married several times?" I don't really know for sure. Anyway, my step-father has been estranged from his family for most of his life. We don't even know if there are any living relatives left. If you are related or know how I may find relation......please help me to reconnect him to his family. At 83 yrs. old....his time is probably limited. Many thanks! Debbie Blakley, Oklahoma City, OK.

Petree and Huff Questions

First off, please excuse the fact that I do not know very much about the Find A Grave website or how it works. Where do I find the instructions on how to use this website properly?

My step-father Carl Huff.....Is related to Arthur Huff and the Tilley Petree families that you have listed here. I accidently came across the information on this web site and I am wondering if there is a way to contact whom-ever put all of the info on here regarding these families? My step-father was shuffled around a lot as a child and has almost no information regarding his family. His father was Wiley Z. Huff. As Carl is 83 yrs. old now, it would be a miracle if I could find a living relative or give him information concerning his family members! Due to Carl's age, the information is rather urgent. :) Thank you so very much for any concern or reply. I realize your time is valuable and I greatly appreciate ANY help. Sincerely, Debbie, OKC, OK.

Hi Richard,

Can you tell me your source for the death date on this fellow. I am doing some work on the family for the Bicentennial, I have his estate paperwork going from 1879 - 1882 and a death date in Dodd Funeral Home records of 25 April 1879 aged 67 years so am trying to figure this one out.

You have a California Methodist Cemetery, California, Moniteau County, Missouri. I live in Moniteau County, in Jamestown. I have never heard of the California Methodist Cemetery. I found that the Proctor's family was buried in the Jackson Cemetery, where unknown. Where is this cemetery located at? I been working on the cemeteries here in Moniteau county, I have never ran across this one.
