Joseph Walker HouK (X)
Check your Joseph Walker Houk on Find A Grave at Mineral Creek. You will notice there is another Joseph Walker HouX. I knew this family, and Houx is the correct spelling of the name. You might check others you entered as Houk, and will probably want to update to the correct spelling. I'm looking at stones for Bernice Houx, Fannie Neil Houx, Jolee Frances Houx, Joseph, Joseph Lee Houx and wife Alice. Thanx for checking this out.

Kenneth was my mother's uncle...the reason I am leaving you a message, is first to thank you for posting this picture of Kenneth, and also, to let you know he died in 1947. He was born 28 Feb 1903 to Andrew Jenkins McChesney and Olive Anna Briscoe, and died 9 April 1947 in Los Angeles county hospital in California.
Thanks again, and I appreciate all you do!!

RE: Duplicate memorials
I deleted my memorials for Geraldine Holland Rode and Harry "Bud" Rode since Find a Grave never responded to my request to merge. I have also sent you edits to add relationship links.

Thank you for your message. Yikes, I didn't know I created two same memorials for the above person. I deleted the one that had unknown dates. I believe I was having computer problems that day. Thank you so much for helping me out. I really do appreciate people like you keeping me on my toes lol :-) Have a blessed day.

Hi Richard,
I just got an E about my duplicate entry for this man in Mineral Creek Cemetery. Since my entry has more info than yours, and you have the stone, would you like to copy my info (from his obit) and then I'll delete mine?

Nora Myrtle Cathcart
Hello, Nora Myrtle is the daughter of Charles and Della (Parker) Cathcart. Dalla' parents were William and Mary Parker. I am trying to determine if they are the correct William and Mary in my tree. My William was son of Bazil and Naomi (Risley) Parker. Do you know anything about any of these people? Bazil is my 3rd great grand uncle on my fathers side.

Civil War Story about L.G. Frybarger by his Commander, Capt. W.S.B. Randall
A Little Prison History of Local Interest

From one of a series of articles on “Prison Life in Libby” by Capt. W.S.B. Randall, which are now running in the “Buckeye Volunteer,” we clip the following scrap of history of one of our townsmen, who was a prisoner in that famous pen. The abbreviated section here looses much of interest by being separated from the article itself, but we believe it possesses enough local merit to justify its publication. With an apology to the gentleman in question for lessening the honors that the writer of the article has justly devoted more space than we have room to accommodate, we append:

“Our private soldiers were confined in the “Smith and Pemberton” building, some seventy-five yards to the northeast of our prison and on the north side of Carey Street. The rebels would make a detail every evening of the Union prisoners, of about forty or fifty with buckets to carry the soup, or slop, to the prison. I watched the detail every day, hoping, if possible to see some of my company boys. One evening, quite late, as the detail filed silently by our south window, with pale, emaciated and upturned faces, for we were one story above them—who should I recognize but my Orderly Sergeant. My heart just leaped within me; he looked so poor and ragged and distressed. I had an old Cincinnati Commercial in my pocket that I had long since received in a box from home. In my anxiety I forgot that I was a prisoner. I ran to the window, I felt as though I must jump right out to him, but it was too far to the ground. I called out to him and said: “Gad, have you heard from home?” He looked up and saw me, his countenance lighted up and with a smile he said, “No, Captain; have you?” “Yes,” I said; “here’s a paper,” and threw it to him. The guard then called out, “Git back, thar; you ____ ____” and raised his gun to shoot. I dodged back, and he ran back further into the street to get a shot at me, but I had got out of sight. By this time the Sergeant was picking up the paper, and the guard made a dash at him with the bayonet and ran it through his arm.

It is useless for me to describe my feelings. To say that I was mad puts it entirely too mildly. I ran to the window, and my expression was not the most gentlemanly, for at that time some soldiers did swear a little. I know they did, for I heard them. Well, the guard tried again to shoot me, but I got out of his range. He then called his Corporal to report me. The Corporal came and I heard what they wee going to do. They were coming in to put me down in the dungeon cell. Of course I didn’t want to go there, so I ran to Lieutenant Thomas, who at that time had on a dress coat with a First Lieutenant’s straps on. I hurriedly exchanged my blouse for his coat and then put on his cap. It so changed my appearance that no one could have known that I was the same man. The Corporal and guards soon came in inquiring for me. They described me, but no man could be found that would exactly fill the bill. After searching for some time, during which time I talked with them, they gave it up as a hopeless case and left the prison.

The Orderly Sergeant was soon removed with other prisoners to Danville, Va., and he afterwards made his escape through a tunnel at Danville, and came West over the mountains and reached the Union lines in safety, and was at our old home about four weeks after my return. We returned to our old regiment and fought on together until the expiration of our term of service and returned home together, and he is now living, broken in health in consequence of his prison life, and a partial sunstroke while in the service. He is unpensioned, which is a shame and a disgrace to our country. His address is L. G. Frybarger, Clay Center, Clay County, Kansas.

Hi Richard, I am very interested in visiting this cemetery and noticed you entered some info about it. Have you been to the cemetery? Are there still any gravestones? Do you have exact coordinates for the cemetery? I am traveling from central Illinois to this area soon to do family research and want to maximize my visit. Thank you for your time and help.

Posted Photo
I went ahead and posted my photo for the Sicking's, even though my foot is in it. #137864502 and #13786447. They have two separate books in the office. One for newer. Someday I will try for a better shot. Thanks for going to all the trouble. You are appreciated.

Added by Tarwater-Newland on Oct 29, 2014 9:25 PM

lol - Not to worry
When you go in front gate by office and turn right, it is that small masoluem on the left by itself. Shiny black colored stone. I took the picture but couldn't get it without my reflection. You took someone else on it that was perfect.

Not related so don't transfer. But thanks.

I know this isn't for profile page, but what year did you graduate. My parents are in Floral Hills, as are my brother and many other family members. I graduated. (Stillwell)

Added by Tarwater-Newland on Oct 28, 2014 2:08 PM

If you ARE able to get the photos, let me know ahead of time and I will request them before you post. Thanks.

Added by Tarwater-Newland on Oct 28, 2014 9:35 AM

So, sorry. ( They are in Mt. Olivet, Raytown, Jackson, MO. As you go through the front gate and turn right, it is is a smaller kiosk (or upright) (#137864478 and #137864502). Its not that important, its just that I've seen another gentleman claiming who has poor quality and clutters the memorials with photos around the memorial as well. Yours are always tasteful. Thanks.

Added by Tarwater-Newland on Oct 28, 2014 9:33 AM

I have added the Sicking's, but can't get a good picture. I did not put in a request because I'm hoping you will try. Your work looks much more professional than some. Thanks.
