Hi Quentin,
I want to thank you for the transfers of my relatives.
I appreciate so much the work you do for FindAGrave. I know there is a lot of time and money involved in going to cemeteries and taking pictures, adding them to the site. Just know that what you do will matter in years to come for so many.

Hello - I have thought about this further and then I keep logging out before sending this thought.

I think it is OK to simply edit the phrase to the following:

"took place at 12 o'clock, noon" or similar to that..."took place at 12 o'clock, p.m." (They used smaller case then.)

On second thought, however, I do think the original accurate, as they sought to differentiate AM from PM or noon from midnight although, common sense, no funeral would be given at midnight. So it's clunky regardless.

But, I think that might have been their thought.

Query, re: Viola
Thank you so much for posting the obit(s) and for the query.

I searched for her on the database again but this time that particular obit did not come up. That often happens as that search engine is a bit wonky- many things come up accidentally via other searches, and (or, since), if the ink is a bit smudged it can misread the name, etc.

I believe that must have said 'forenoon' as I seem to recall that word and it's a word they were fond of using in those days.

I try to type exactly as I find things (other than obvious 'typos' that would make everyone look silly, but which are rare), because their style, punctuation, paragraph breaks, capitalization and even spelling, use of hyphens etc. can differ so much, to today.

One thing I do change is the word "employe" no one spells it that way today and everyone would think it a typo. I suppose they only used "employee" then for the feminine usage, similar to "fiance/fiancee."

Sorry, I digress; if I find the original I will revisit the query but it is either an overlook by the writer or editor, or on my part. I sometimes type for 10-12 hours straight...Am afraid I get a bit bleary.

So I can't say for sure but that likely was meant to say "forenoon." My apologies.

And Happy New Year by the way.

RE: Thank you
Thank you very much. I have noted your kindness in the past, and appreciate it very much.

So we both have Schallers in our tree. How interesting! I didn't know any of this before I began exploring my roots about 5 years ago, and now, I find that often I share roots with a lot of people who hail from the same area.

Thank you for your generous offer. I will have to take another look at my tree and see which ones I have info I'd like to continue adding etc., but it's such an interesting line. Tempting offer!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

Happy Holidays.

Is it possible that James Byrd Williams born 1817 died 1882 is buried in the Palmyra cemetery? His wife was Patience Mahala. I have his death in Polk Co. A cousin has him elsewhere. I see you have a J.T. Williams in Palmyra. I am at a loss. Thanks!

Charles Howard headstone.
Hello, Quentin. I am interested in the headstone of Charles Howard, buried in Marion County, MO. He is supposed to be buried in Minor-Sand---- Cem in Hannibal. This Charles Howard was buried in Greenwood Cem, Palmyra, Marion Co, MO and was born after my Charles Howard (also spelled Harward) . Do you know of any other Harward/Howard surnames in either of these cemeteries? Is there a record in Marion Co, do you know for all the burials in these two cemeteries that would include Harward or Howard? I am looking to verify my Charles, who the headstone says died 1889, but should be 1883-it is difficult to red on the stone. Can you direct me to where I might inquire about seeing a list of burials in either of those cemeteries, with an address or email address? My Charles lived in Palmyra from after 1865 to his death in 1883, and this listing at Greenwood, might be a relative of my Charles that I am unaware of. Would it be common to live in Palmyra and be buried in Hannibal as the F-A-G site gives? I'm not sure ow far apart they are. Any help for a list of burials in either of those cemeteries would be most appreciated. Thanks , Dar at

Sometimes the essence of this poem does get miconstruded
Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Glenwood Cemetery
I see where you have taken many pictures of stones in Missouri and I wonder if you are close to Glenwood Cemetery in Schuyler County, Mo.?
If so, would you be able to get 2 pictures for me? I have asked for them the right way but no luck so far.

Otto Elliott #88102915
Hi Mr. Bremmer, In regards to the subject, Otto Elliott and his wife Bertha, the info on their pages regarding Joe Edwin Griggs is incorrect. Mr. Griggs is not their child. The person that originally posted this errant information has disabled the message option on their F/A/G page, so I don't know how to contact them to get this corrected. Mr.Griggs died on the same day, Sep 14, 2014, lived in the same town, as Donald Eugene Elliott. Their obits were published in the same newspaper and their services directed by Waters Funeral Home in Vandalia. The original "poster" of this incorrect information obviously got the details mixed up. That's why such information should be left to family members to handle. Thanks for your attention to this. I appreciate all the work you've done in documenting
Marion County information. Carol Buckwalter Small

Hi!My name is Susan and I had put a request on findagrave for Leeta Fern Elliott Walker Begley. She is buried at Grand View Burial Park.
They said they could not find the stone.
I am in contact with someone who said that would were knowledgable about the cemetery and that I should ask you if there is a stone for her. Her second marriage was to Charley Wayne Begley.I just thought I would reach out to you and see if you can help me?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks! Susan
