Elizabeth Bay

I see that you have posted a photo of Elizabeth Bay's gravestone in Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Coffey county, and I was wondering if you were able to read the dates on the headstone? I'm unsure of the exact date of birth and death of my ancestor and I can't quite make out the dates on the photo. Any info you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Why would you post a gravestone picture on a memorial that already has a very good picture of the same gravestone? Find A Grave Memorial# 18572503 - If you are related, I would be happy to transfer the memorial to your care.

Hi Bill,
will you take a look at the records there and see if you can find this soldier? I can't find him on the grave locator and he served in the 2nd Colored Troops Co A. Can't find him on the adjutant general's report either.

His obit is on the memorial and the 1865 Fort Scott census shows him serving. He's listed in the household of Andrew and Jane Jones. I checked Jones too but didn't find him.

Thanks so much for fulfilling my request for a photo of the gravestone of Daniel Tinney. It was most helpful to me to see that this man is indeed the Civil War veteran I has suspected. Your timely help is very much appreciated! SuzanneA

Elizabeth Bay in Pleasant Hill Cemetery

I see that you've submitted a photo for Elizabeth Bay's grave in Pleasant Hill Cemetery:

I was wondering if you had transcribed the stone at the time? Unfortunately I'm unable to read the inscription on the photo, and am pretty sure this is the final resting place of one of my ancestors that I've been looking for for a while. Many thanks in advance for your help.
