Hi Richard, I am going to be doing some work in the Freeman Cemetery and noticed Ida has two entries. I was checking to see if this a duplicate entry as both were created by you. Thanks for your help if in fact one can be deleted. Karen

Carl Hill memorial St Peters Cem

A very BIG thank you for letting me know the picture did not match the memorial page. You were correct. I removed the picture.

Purely unintentional. Must have clicked on wrong picture number.

Again. Thank you VERY much for letting me know.

got the answers
sorry to bother you, I found the answer to those questions on Ezekiel Harrison... Ofer was his son and on the 1900 census his name IS "Ezekil H." (Ezekiel) and the wife was Nancey Elizabeth Beaman. (which you also have as a memorial) I have already connected her to her husband.. and her father was William F Beman (Beaman) thank you for all your hard work...

thank you
thank you so very much for the transfer of Ezekiel Harrison GREER.
On the death cert. does it say what relation the informant is? Opher GREER? but he had no knowledge of Ezekiel's mother...? So I doubt that he would really be that knowledgeable about the father's TRUE name... Harrison Ezekiel??? His father is JR on all other sources.... and Ezekiel SR only has an S. for a middle name. You may not know the answer but at least I wanted to get my question out there. Thanks you again... very nice memorial.

RE: MIA Civil War soldier
well thank you for your response.
I was thinking if I could figure out where that Field Hospital was located round-about November 1861, where I have proof that 34 soldiers of the
27th Missouri Infantry, Mounted, was located maybe I could get a memorial with all their names. And make them not MIA anymore. I think 153 years is too long for our Civil War soldiers, either side to go MIA. Dont you?

thank you again, Carole Taylor

MIA Civil War soldier
Hi, I just noticed you are a Civil WAR buff.
I am looking for the actual burial grounds for my g-grandfather, who is apparently MIA since Nov. 5 1861. please, I have looked at every gov. site I could find.. please see his memorial 122249529
He "died of the fever" that's all his muster card says, not where they laid him and the other 33 men of his regiment that died of the fever.
"In Sedalia, Pettis cnty MO" My family does have a cemetery where his parents, wife, and some kids are buried but he has still not been found in the Lee cemetery, in Beamis..any help would be greatly appreciated. His name Morrison Mitchell Lee
thank you for your hard work to keep the history of our families alive. that too is my goal..

Susan Elkins
Do you have any other information on Susan Ferguson 77840026? I see in the picture that there is a tombstone next to hers, do you know whose name is on it? I am trying to locate my GG Grandparents markers on here. She was Married to a Bill Riley ( Bill may or may not have been his 1st name )and had 1 daughter ( maybe more kids ) named Opal Riley. Any info would be appreciated

RE: thank you! thank you!
Thanks for you quick reply. The only other unfilled King I had put in is for Nancy Jones King, w/o John H. King. You added his stone photo last week. I wonder if Nancy is "hiding" on the other side of his stone? I've found shared obelisk style stones in the past where I "missed" the inscription on the opposite side. If you're there again, could you check? (it's still open in Find A Grave) It's possible that some of the newer King graves are descendants that I don't know about yet. But lots of unrelated Kings. Last week I found an not-known-of-before toddler daughter of John H. King in Greene Co. IL and added her to my tree (Priscilla). Died before they came to MO.
Thanks again for the permission and all your efforts!

thank you! thank you!
I just got the email from Findagrave that you had put in photo for J. W. King stone. Thank you so much!! I don't have his birth year precisely (ca. 1844 per the census). He married Ollie Hiler in 1877 and died in 1881. The stone confirms she is indeed buried here.
May I use the photo in my Ancestry tree for them? J.W. was a nephew to my gr gr grandfather (in IL). John Wesley King was son of John Horten King of Harrisonville, also buried here. John Wesley was a carpenter, as was John Horten. I see you also just added the other King family pictures I requested. So grateful - many thanks again! Same question - may I add the photos if I give credit to the memorial they are in? Do you prefer to have your name listed in Ancestry with the photo credit or just the credit and link to Find A Grave page? (need to read your page)
John Horten King and wife Nancy Jones came from IL to MO. He is listed in the Bible page I have copy of.
Very nice pictures. They mean a lot.

Richard, I've been submitting some McFerrin link requests (when you see who has them you'll appreciate what an exercise in futility that is), and I noticed the photos you posted. They are really exceptional, thanks so much.

Silvestro Festorazzi
Richard - it was what I thought, he's one of the names on the monument in square 27 in Magnolia Cemetery. According to sexton records, he is not buried in Magnolia, so he is probably the Festorazzi buried in Catholic Cemetery, Mobile. Hopefully you were able to look at the link I sent you earlier that shows a Silvestro/Sylvester Festorazzi who was an officer in the 21st Alabama Infantry. I was able to locate another link:

Another connection to the 21st. Hope this helps.

Hi again Richard,

I am new to this and I forgot to add the memorial number for Mary McCulley my great grandmother. It is 40377886.

Thank you again for considering the transfer.

Good Morning, Richard

I am Mary McCulley-Hemphill and the great granddaughter of Mary McCulley. Her name is actually Mary Harriett Utterback McCulley and was married to my paternal great grandfather John Hampton McCulley. My father is John Edward McCulley and his father was Mary Harriett's son, Charles Emory McCulley who was married to Artie Adelia Agee McCulley.

I want to first applaud you for the work you are doing. I was stunned and extremely happy when I discovered all my family members graves in oak Valley. I started on Find a Grave about 6 months ago and will be making my first "photo" trip to a local cemetery this week to do some uploads.

The McCulley/Ballenger family reunion is the last week of June this year, and I was planning a trip to the cemetery to take pictures. I was there in the 60's and the cemetery has sure changed.

I hope I fall within your guidelines of transfers. I would very much appreciate your transferring my great grandmother's site to me for maintenance.

I have 1 more question. I think I see in the photo next to Mary's grave stone, a GAR marker. That must be my great grandfather's grave next to her, is there not a grave stone for him? Do you remember? He was in GAR and served in the Civil War.

I know this is a long note you can reach me at my and my Find A Grave # is 48211044.

Thank you so much! Mary McCulley-Hemphill
