Corrine Van Vacter-Follow up
I am so glad you found an obit for Corrine. I called the Carney Funeral Chapel several weeks ago and this morning they finally called saying they were unable to find where she was buried. He said the State of Missouri didn't require the place of burial for cremations. Questionable.

He was married to #3: Mary Josephine Price Strait on 23 October 1912 at her home. Her obit (that of Mary Josephine Walters) is in the 19 January 1928 issue of Green Castle Journal

By chance, have you any idea where I can find out the sex of Infant Collins? I have been looking every where and have come up short. Your help will be greatly appreciated.


Sorry this is duplicate message.

Thank you for your edits for Raymond Whitesell Cater. Are you a family member? I am not and am quite happy to transfer his memorial to someone closer to him.

RE: Corrine Van Vacter
I think it is time to retire for the day. You have been a great help especially adding her obit and linking her to her parents.

Appreciate you.

RE: Corrine Van Vacter
I checked the Social Security Index. Corrine full name was Zoma Corrine Van Vacter. She died 20 Jan 1990 in Macon, Mo. I am going to contact Cindy at the LaPlata Library to see if there is an obit. Also, will put a request for photo.

Photo of Dr Comstock
There is no way to remove photo from frame without destroying photo. I will attempt better photo today. There are other photos I am doing the same with. I am at my mother in law's home. The photos are hers. If I can not please myself with how the new photos turn out I may wish to email it to you if that would be ok. I will do my best.

William Coates Collins-86118508
Wondering if his wife Connie Van Vacter is buried by him. If so, she needs to be put in Find A Grave.

There is a photo that you have on the his find-a-grave:

I'm wondering if you have this full resolution scan/image. I'd like to attach it to my family tree. His daughter Zora Pearl was my grandma.

If you can, e-mail me:

Thank you.

RE: Shiloh Cemetery
I transferred all Shiloh memorials to you that I had. If you decide you don't want some of them, you can send them back my way. It doesn't matter to me.

It has been raining every day here for weeks. Fortunately, my husband and I live on a hill and do not suffer from flooding. My heart goes out to all those that have been impacted. Part of the problem is that cities and counties allow people to build homes in dangerous areas.

Shiloh Cemetery
I have about six more memorials in Shiloh Cemetery that I manage. You can have them if you want them. I have no connection to the people, and, as you know, I don't live in Macon County either.

RE: Mary J. Caldwell
They have the Tozier Cemetery index as well as other cemetery indexes at the Macon Library. They may have other info that would be of interest to you?

Mary J. Caldwell
The Macon County Historical Society sent me a cemetery index for Tozier Cemetery, or a copy of it rather. It has Mary Caldwell listed in it and it is absolutely 100 percent 1890 as a year of death. O's and 9's can often times be mistaken for each other if not clearly written.
But, just because this index says 1890, does not necessarily make it right. Maybe the index is the one in error???
As you well know, it cannot be 1890 and 1899 both unless she was raised from the dead in 1890?! :-]
Don't know what else to tell you. Don't know how to solve the problem, short of getting a time machine and going back and preventing the fire that destroyed the 1890 census.

CUNNINGHAM? family photos
Hello, I've just recently scanned some family photos that I think include Julia Black Cunningham and Charles Wallace Cunningham and children. Could I email a few to you to see if you have them also in your Cunningham album? Not many are marked with names, but the photographer's info is for towns they would have lived in.

Thanks from Jane Snell Copes

If this is not good use of your time, please just say so!
