Ernest Eugene "Gene" Kinion - New Cambria Cemetery - Memorial # 40727825
Filling in a few details on some of the Kinion family I have found in my tree, and saw your memorial. A couple of questions if possible. In the bio it mentions Ernest had 3 stepsons and 3 stepdaughters. Were these children of his 2nd wife Betty McMurray? And was McMurray her maiden name. Also in the bio it mentions one of the stepchildren as Betty Palliser of Bevier. I found I have a memorial #63274273 from Antioch Cemetery for a Betty Marie Palliser 1951-2000 wife of James E. Palliser born 1947. Do you think this is the same stepdaughter Betty?

RE: Israel Chadwick
Thanks for your help, and info about Israel. I am afraid I am not very computer savvy, but I do stumble along somehow. I will give your directions a try. I will check rootsweb for Israel. He seems to show up here and there, but with very little back up. Thanks again. Peace, Missy

Israel Chadwick
Hi. I am trying to figure out one of my lines, and I see you have a memorial for Israel Thompson Chadwick. You have Israel Chadwick and Hannah Thompson as his parents. I was wondering if you have your source for him and his parents. Israel Sr. seems to be a bit illusive. Any help appreciated! Missy

RE: Joseph K Park
Thanks! I'm not so worried about the name issue. I just wondered and thought I'd mention it for clarity sake. There are a host of inconsistencies between newspapers, obits and actual documented facts I've seen. That's just the way people's memories go then or now. I will check out the LaPlata home press. I'd like to see if there are other articles pertaining to my family. Or at least it would be good to get a snapshot of my grandmother's world as a young girl. Thanks again for bringing this up.

RE: Allen's in Yates Center Cemetery
Thank You!! I too check daily for edits and approve them. It was surprising to me how many never check on them. My summer project has been to put Lot numbers on graves at the Yates Center Cemetery. Many were mine to add the Lot # to but I have sent hundreds and hundreds of edits to others. I appreciate your promptness and willingness to do it. Thank you again!

No, I don't know where the information came from regarding his parents. I have removed the links to his parents per your information. It's hard to catch the contributor's ID by the current updating system.

RE: Joseph K Park
No worries. I wasn't blaming you or anyone (except maybe a long ago negligent journalist who shall remain nameless). The media makes errors today. I just wanted to verify the source. It's not the first extant error I've found in genealogical research. Thanks for replying. Now I've got another reason to come visit LaPlata.

I noticed on my great grandfather's page the article for his death notice in the LaPlata times lists my grandmother's name as Mrs. Gumby. Her name was actually Mrs. Godbey. I wondered if this was a typo from the account of the day and if this is available in original form online to verify. Otherwise I'll hunt it down when I come to LaPlata next time. I'm also looking for more information on John Clinton mentioned as a son of my gr grandfather from a previous marriage. Thanks!

RE: Thanks for the info. you sent.
Ok, good to know. You'd think that those maintaining memorials (whether through creating them or a transfer) would have slightly more control over certain things. I've yet to deal with edits personally, so certain things are still a little fuzzy to me.

RE: Thanks for the info. you sent.
I wasn't sure who could remove links like that, but now I know. It may come in handy in the future as well. Thanks!

I will never understand WHY it is a problem for ANYONE if there is a duplicate memorial.....I know Find A Grave says not to......but it happens and I never nor will I ever complain. I just do not understand HOW memorials that I had posted 10 years ago with headstone pics and family bio have now disappeared! Or someone else has now posted the exact same memorial with incorrect info and THEY DO not respond when they are contacted regarding the error and would they mind correcting!

Are you related to Della Rahe? She was my great-grandfather's sister. I inherited a box of pictures from the Rahe side of the family and they do not have names on them. I would love to find out who they are.

RE: William F. Easley
I would leave the "F". I found new documentation showing that he is named after his grandfather. 1806 William Francis "Judge" Easley. Very few documents show his middle name. This link shows him to be the first born between William Easley and 1813 Sophia Patrick Easley.

1806 Grainger Co TN William F Easley named his first born with his third wife Francis William Easley.

I was just hoping that you had some sort of info I didn't have.

I am looking for a daughter of 1806 William Easley and Sophia Patrick Easley (looking for Sophia too)and her name was Lavisa (or Louisa in some census records). She is believed to be the mother to 1859 William Easley from Macon county. Buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery.

William F. Easley

Can you tell/send me any data you have on William F. Easley & Sophia (Patrick) Easley?

I have been researching this side of my family for a while and have not seen anything showing a middle initial of F and hoped that you had some other clues that I haven't found. I can't find much of anything on Sophia (Patrick) Easley. Not sure if she remarried or not. The William Easley you refer to as his father is the 1806 Grainger County Tennessee, William Easley, correct?

James Niles Farmer #86143140
James Niles Farmer #86143140 is buried at Mt. Tabor Cemetery in Macon County, Missouri.

I believe you have the wrong birth and death dates on his memorial. If you study your photo of his grave stone, you see he died in 8/1872, aged 57years, 9 months, making his birthdate in 11/1814.

The dates you listed are for John M. Farmer, an ancestor in our family tree, who is likely the brother of James Niles Farmer and William A. Farmer, all from Kentucky and sons of Henry Farmer and Nancy McCord. They appear to have arrived in the 1840s as they are in the 1840 census of Pulaski County, Kentucky and in the 1850 census of Macon County, Missouri.
