RE: Mikel Cemetery, La Plata, Macon Co., MO.?
My research lead me to find that MIKEL is same as BRAGG. I had them merged today and can be found by either name. Another mystery solved!!!! (S-M-I-L-E)

Doing some research, will let you know what I find. I received an obit today giving MIKEL cemetery as burial location. Have not yet posted it in bio but will. So has to be an answer somewhere.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies for the loss of Blue Too and Buttermilk. I searched for two years to find a Schipperke, which is a very difficult breed to find in the midwest. But, I finally rescued an 8 year old female, Lizzie, and she has been a lifesaver.
Now, back to the Poage headstone. If you have some time, I would really appreciate it if you could take a close look at Mary's date of birth. Mary and Thomas were married in December of 1833 and her siblings were born prior to 1821. Her parents, Boaz and Judith Maxey were married in 1809.
Thanks so much! Happy hunting!

Thank you for the correction on David Covert. I received the info from my Mom. A few years ago and wasn't sure of her info. Was unable to prove it.

Thanks again.

New to this site
Farm Girl, I stumbled upon this site yesterday after googling my Great-Great Grandfather, Thomas Murphy. #37247561. His children listed is incomplete. My Great-Grandmother (Grammy) was Marie Murphy-Hunter. I searched for her today and she does have a listing, #31153138. Since I am new to this site can you help me get Marie listed under her father? She would be Beatrice's sister. It is stated in her obituary under her grave number.

Thank you so much!

RE: Mary Viola Forsythe Warren
You are very Welcome. Your memorial for Silas is well laid out and explains things as best you can at this time. Perhaps in the future a document will pop up that will solve the "W.H." mystery but until then it is just that. A mystery.

As we had dicussed in earlier messages it is one of three things.

A complete goof by whoever did the stone.
She remarried sometime between Silas's death and the 1925 census.
Silas was known by another name.

It was a fun little adventure. I found you very easy to work with and open to suggestions (theories). Perhaps in the future we can work togather again as the Chillicothe Cemetery is on my list of places to visit and photograph. (It is a very long list. LOL)

Best regards

I haven't messed with HTML for years but see if the below works. If I did it right, it should be a clickable link.

Silas Warren marriage

If it does not work perhaps you have someplace I can send the file. It is about 2 1/2 MB large.

RE: Please remove list of children from bio. area.
I will be happy to do so just as soon as the memorial creators link them to their parents-just to be sure that they actually do so. Please just notify me when you've heard back from all of them.

RE: Mary Viola Forsythe Warren
If you choose to go to my Google page I have uploaded a copy of the marriage record for Silas and Viola.
The file is called "Silas Warren Marriage". I believe it is the second file from the top.

My Google storage site is -

Did Silas have an expanded name? Was Silas a nickname that stuck. I remember some folks talking one time about their uncle Buck who had died. That wasn't his real name but that is all they had ever heard him called. When I see W.H., I think "William Henry", but for Viola it might have been "Whata Honey" LOL

I'll leave ya alone now. You'll figure it out.

Mary Viola Forsythe Warren
Could you please contact me through my email in reference to Mary Viola Forsythe Warren (Find A Grave Memorial# 81728162) I have a stone photo but would like some clarification as she is listed as wife of "W.H. Warren", not Silas. I could send you photos of the stone by email and maybe we can sort this out. My email is listed on our members page.

Thank you for your time.

Sadie's two husbands
I believe Sadie's first husband was William Albert Walker. They married in 1917. Her second husband was Ben M. Buress and they were married in 1940.

More confusing data. His DC shows father as Silas Hayden and mother as Pollie Bernard.

Your memorial shows parents as "Nathan Hadon" & "Lucy Bernard". I have Leroy Hayden in the 1880 Macon Co, Mo census as a child of Silas Hayden and Sarah, along with two other siblings. One of which is in my mothers line of the Haydens. What info do you have that made that connection?

Thank you for all your efforts to support Find A Grave.

RE: Fountain Baker Sampson
Ok, thanks for the reply.

I was reading last night that some of the Baker & Sampson families that migrated to the NE part of Missouri were from Kentucky. I'll explore that further.

Thanks again,
