Willis Cemetery
Hi Richard,

What if I can prove from myself to Merrill Willis (with birth or death certificates) in Willis Cemetery in Dreyfus, KY, is my GG Grandfather? I have been to his grave with my other Willis cousins that still live in the area and I have been in contact with Mike Shelton who lives not far from the cemetery who has cleaned up the cemetery before.

My Father Passed away (he was Merrill's G Grandson) Father's Day 2013 so I am the only one left for his line. I have either birth or death certs for myself to Merrill as I said. I hope it's just a matter of proving. Thank you for your time.

More than happy to prove it (I also proved my line to Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War,, the MN group, Tent #1. I admitted Merrill's civil war record).

Please let me know,

Thanks,

Sally Willis

Isaac Sponsler Sponsellor # 80577799
Let me thank you for all your hard work. I have added a few things myself, but nothing like you. This concerns # 80577799 Isaac Sponsellor and Mary # 80577939
buried in Saline County MO. We are researching Sponsler/Sponseller lines. Noticed that Isaac's obit (on findagrave) has his last name as Sponsler yet his headstone has Sponsellor. Have found 4 different census forms (on ancestry.com) which has his name as Sponsler. Just wondering if somehow there could be link on findagrave.com to show his last name as Sponsler. I have never seen a burial with name Sponsellor - Sponseller, yes. Would you know if this was placed at his death or have any other info on discrepancy between stone and his obit? Just a funny aside, in my research have found a husband, John Sponseller, buried in Hocking County, OH. His wife, Sarah, died later and was buried next to him as Sponsler. Thanks for any help you might give, Mike Sponsler

Thanks for this transfer; I have seen your profile page before but have no idea who this Richard Johnston is or why I would want that transfer. Long way out of my "neck of the woods".Should I transfer him back or is there an explanation? D. Moores

RE: William Johnston obituary
William Johnston 1799-1884 had 3 siblings according to a written account by one of his grandsons that indicated he had a brother Robert, who probably stayed in KY, and 2 siblings who moved to Cole County, MO. They were a brother
George and a sister Jenny, who married a man named Scotty.

I would like to rule out 2 people with Find A Grave listings George Kinder Johnston and Nancy Jane Johnston Scott as possibilities for the 2 siblings who moved to Cole County. Those individuals were originally from Wayne County, KY.
Thanks for responding.

William Johnston obituary
I haven't been in touch in some time but did find a front page Appleton City obit in Columbia, MO, that was continued inside the paper but never found the continuation. Do you have a complete copy?
One of William's descendants did a Y DNA test and came up with a match for a Johnson (with Faris and Kinder connections) with early ancestors from Wayne County, KY. It made me wish I could rule in or out George Kinder Johnston and Nancy Jane Johnston Scott in Cole Co, MO, as siblings as Great-Uncle Roy said William had a brother George and a sister Jenny, who married a man named Scotty, both of whom settled in Cole Co, MO, and a brother Robert, who probably stayed in KY. I failed to get a Find-a-Grave response from the lady who did the Cole County post. The Cole County Johnston's originally came from Wayne, County, KY. Have you ever investigated those folks?
Thanks for all the research you have shared over the years.

Bert Richardson # 91803133
Do you know of any of Bert Richardson's relatives? I have Richardson ancestors in Morgan and Camden Counties and my grandmother, Rena Richardson, lived in Sedalia at one time, I think. Rena's parents were Amos and Sarah Richardson who lived in Morgan County and probably died before 1900. I don't know where their graves are located or exactly when they died.

Thanks,
Sharon S.

Lois Simer, not Aimer at Orient Cemetery
Richard

I should have noticed when I sent you the request that the memorial for Lois has her surname misspelled. It should be "Simer" not "Aimer." I have sent an edit to the creator of the memorial. I am very sorry to have wasted your time looking for a nonexistent person. Please accept my apology.
