I did spell it correctly in the original message. I just double checked my messages. Must have been a typo on your part. Hope you have a happy holiday season.

Hi Richard, I'm not sure if I thanked you for the information on Thomas Haney, in Salem Cemetery, Carroll County, Missouri. I'm doing that now. "Each Day Counts", Loretta

Lucinda Glover Holler #2
Please forgive my earlier message. I found another article on the funeral,and it mentioned the error of marriages. According to this article,Lucinda was first married to James Henry Holler 29 Oct 1902,and it was James that died 16 Mar 1941.It then mentions,"She was later married to Newton Holler."

I visited the Elizabeth Wylie Cemetery today and took a few photos. I also recorded GPS coordinates and thought I would leave those for you to add for the cemetery location. 37.775921, -84.510037
Thank you for your time and efforts. If I can be of any assistance please let me know.

I also have family connections in that area, so I watch for them while working at the Jennings County Library.

Flora E. Chapman # 29247741
Here is an obit for this lady.

May 6, 1909 - North Vernon Plain Dealer

Flora E. Chapman died at the home of her youngest sister, Mrs. T. E. Rowland, at Paris, Ind., Sunday, April 25, 1909. She was born at Letast, Ohio, September 27,1843, age 65 years. She has lived in this community for 20 years where she had many friends. She sought in every way to be helpful to those about her; hers was a life of sacrifice for the good of humanity and God's cause in general. She lived a consistent Christian from a little girl, when she joined the M. E. church and consecrated her life work to Him. Her influence wherever she lived speaks more than words can, and we can surely say we know she is at rest with her heavenly father. She leaves one brother and two sisters who wish to thank their many friends for all their kindness to them in this sad time. The funeral took place Monday at 2 p, m. from the M. E church, conducted by her pastor, Rev. Williams, who took for his text "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." Burial at Coffee Creek Baptist cemetery.

George R Miller
Hello, My name is Bonnie Mintzer Dampman. I was looking into my Miller's and I found a document for Augustus R Miller. It listed his brothers and sisters and it said George Miller was in Kansas. I am wondering if you know if George Miller was born in Oley, Berks County, Pennsylvania. Thank You for your time.

I would like to thank you for the excellent headstone photos for my grandparents in Oak Hill Cemetery in Butler, MO. I am using them for documentation for my application to the D.A.R.

CPL Sidney Todd (1828-1863)(#32236444) addendum
To clarify, the Vockery's name for the Blue Grass Memorial Cemetery on US-421 was "Mt. Zion Re-Interrment Cemetery," not Mt. Zion Cemetery.

CPL Sidney Todd (1828-1863)(#32236444)
Mr. Parker:
While doing some FG work this morning in the Blue Grass Memorial Cemetery, I noticed that you had created an memorial for Sidney Todd (1828-1863) in the "Mt. Zion Cemetery." In the bio you stated that the (CPL) Sidney Todd memorial in the Blue Grass Memorial Cemetery listed his place of death as Madison County, Missouri. Did you send an SAC (Suggest A Correction) to the creator of that memorial? I ask this because the place of death in the memorial is now correctly shown as Madison County, Kentucky.
There are still two issues, though. The first is that CPL Sidney Todd is indeed buried in the Blue Grass Memorial Cemetery. The US Army removal records list his name as among those moved in 1942 to build the Blue Grass Army Depot. I recently found a fragment of his Union Army gravestone and posted a photo of it today to memorial #75559060.
The second issue is that "Mt. Zion Cemetery" does not exist except on pages 16-19 of Volume II of Vockery's Cemetery Records of Madison County. I have both of the Vockery volumes and they are, over all, very thorough and accurate. The Vockerys were my neighbors in the late 1980s in Richmond. However, for some unknown reason, they chose to call the US Army removal cemetery (ie: Blue Grass Memorial Cemetery) on US-421 as the "Mt. Zion Cemetery."

Grave Transfer..
Hi Richard..I like your long comment on the rules..made me smile as I have the same issues.
I would like to request the grave transfer of Nelson Ross Memorial#41748982. He is my great uncle, brother to my grandpa Raymond Vernon Ross Memorial#170685897 who just recently died in September 2016. My goal is to connect all of grandpa's siblings to him. So, if you could please transfer my great uncle Nelson Ross#41748982 to me I would greatly appreciate it very much.
Thank you for your time..
Tracey (Ross) Daly

RE: Samuel Bloch & Caroline Beutler Bloch
I remember writing to you via SAC, but apparently forgot to check the box to send me a copy. Pretty sure the Bloch Memorials information was a FYI. Your Block Cemetery Memorials for them have been duplicated (Memorials 46533060 and 46533016) and incorrectly placed in Rohrbach Cemetery. This has been called to the attention of the person maintaining those Memorials.

I'm thinking that Block Cemetery should be called Bloch Cemetery and you were my first step in that investigation. You seem to have a lot of knowledge about Moniteau County cemeteries. I know what my next step is and will proceed in due time. If a name change is warranted, I have experience with "".

Thanks, Buddy Leech

RE: Frank dillon
I didn't know either way, Richard. I just thought you might want to state the discrepancy of the two sources on Francis "Frank's" profile. Thank you for investigating it though. I am dealing with the same issue with another unrelated profile I created based on cemetery records. It sure is confusing.
