I guess I need to change my aol address on Find A Grave, or people type "dblauvelt" incorrectly, or if trying to reply directly using the suggested correction notification from Find A Grave, forget they have to replace the "no-reply" sending address with the email address of the person who made the suggestion.

RE: Orilla DeWitt Thomas Memorial
Thanks for the reply.

The first line of the article referred to is erroneous. It should read "Elizabeth Dewitt,...the mother [not Daughter] of Reuben M. Dewitt [not Greggs.]" The surname Greggs is erroneous as Elizabeth's maiden name was Griggs, dau. of Austin Griggs and Orilla Dimock, b. of record as Elizabeth Jane Griggs Sept. 29, 1826 at Tolland, Conn. She m. Henry Dewitt of record Sept. 10, 1845 at Mansfield, Conn. and immediately moved with several of her married siblings and Dimock cousins of Coventry and adjoining Mansfield, Conn. to Milford, PA where Elizabeth's first four children were born. Henry Henry Dewitt and wife Elizabeth Jane Griggs arrived at Palmyra, MO between 1853 and 1855.

Still, if you have any recollection of where the article snippet can be found I would appreciate a reference, as there appears to be more to it concerning the Dewitt family than appears in the portion uploaded to Reuben M. DeWitt's memorial.

RE: James C. Jackson burial
Thank you, two Memorial days ago we talked to the lady who over sees the Cemetery because Mom wanted to put a marker by the cedar tree, she checked the books and said he wasn't listed but being in the old part of the Cemetery some of the paperwork had been distorted. And the obit in Mears said a nearby Cemetery, Mom could not remember for positive, but with the Shirley so close we waited. Thanks for your help.

Dorcas Hubbard photos
Thank you very much for the photos of Dorcas's marker. It helps keep us "honest" and that is great!! Dates and name spellings are important to note, also. Thanks. Sandy Morrey

RE: Alexander Todd -- Harmony Cemetery
Did you see the "problem report" I left? I thought about saying remove the request, but I thought perhaps the note might explain the situation. If you want to remove the request that would be alright, too. So many of the little "funeral markers" are gone or are "erased" from time. If you saw the note it explains why some are damaged and/or are gone. You do as you wish with request, but I agree, this is probably all we will find through the cemetery and cemetery records--I think you said final. :(

Thanks for whatever you decide to do!

Ezekeiel Bragg photo, etc.
Thanks for adding the photo to the memorial of Ezekeiel Bragg. Is there anyway to get it touch with John Bragg who is doing the work at the Bragg cemetery? I would love to visit the cemetery but since I don't know its exact location I haven't tried to find it on my own. It always helps to know someone who has been to the cemetery. Thanks again for the info. and photo you have been so nice to share with me about the Bragg's. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.

NE Missouri Soldiers
I saw you have a virtual cemetery for the NE Missouri soldiers. My great grandfather was in the 21st Volunteer Infantry. His memorial number is 69265979, if you wish to add him.

RE: Major B.B. King Restoration
Thanks. I was aware of this. Mr. Arnold at the funeral home told me about the Boy Scouts doing a cleanup. My great-great grandfather Hoffman and my great-grandmother Wolter's first husband are buried nearby, but the place was vandalized to the point we can't find the stones. My dad Raymond Wolter and grandfather Frank Wolter knew exactly where they were laid to rest. Because the stones are so scattered, it would take a very long time combing the woods to find the stones, if they can be found. For whatever reason, a lady who documents cemeteries took it upon herself to combine Oak Bluff and Zahn cemeteries. Probably because she didn't really know who was where, even though I could verify some of them.

Bragg cemetery map.
I scanned the map into my computer and have added it to the memorial of Ezekial Bragg. It isn't the best copy and some of the names are difficult to read so if you would prefer I can make a tracing of the map and add it to the memorial instead. Let me know if that would help. Always glad to see a cemetery brought back so it can be preserved and photographed. Thanks so much for informing me of the work being done.

Bragg Cemetery
Yes, I have a copy of the map of the Bragg Cemetery. It is from "The Cemeteries of Adair County, Missouri" published in 1980 by the Adair County Historical Society. I know the Adair County Public Library has a copy of this book and I have two copies of it. Would love to be kept up to date on the restoration project. I have always wanted to photograph stones in the Bragg cemetery but just to busy with other projects.

RE: Major B.B. King FG # 7662974
I looked at King's memorial and saw the stone picture. That stone is not at Oak Bluff. It is at the Zahn Cemetery. The owner of the property it sits on is a Mr. Zahn. He lives in a house at the bottom of the hill east of the cemetery. I don't remember the address, but if you travel south on 5th Street in Canton, you will run into a mailbox that says Zahn on it. Talk to him. There are two ways to get to the cemetery. The other way is from the west at the end of Marion Street. King's stone is in the main clearing. There are dozens of other stones scattered throughout the woods, across the gravel drive. My daughter and I found them. Most were face down.

RE: Major B.B. King FG # 7662974
The monument is at Oak Bluff behind the campus. The actual cemetery is now an athletic field. At the west side of the field are some evergreens. If you look behind evergreens you will see a tall pink stone memorial. A few feet west of monument is a ravine. Down in the ravine are all the headstones that CS removed from cemetery to make room for their athletic field.

Thanks again,

Would like any information you have on Sarah Bowles family, as I have none.

RE: Little Mountain Cemetery
Actually, no I didn't know that! Thank you for letting me know. I've been trying to obtain burial information from them for awhile now and I don't seem to be able to find out who to contact. Thank you so very much for giving me its location.

Best Regards-
