Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history for about three years now and had hit brickwalls for my Browns, Jacksons and Stephens. I finally got over the brickwalls with the help of others on ancestry, and now I want to be sure they are included on findagrave as well. I also signed up as a photo volunteer, and when I look for the requests I try to take pictures of all graves with the same surname as the requests, plus I try to take as many pictures of others who don't have a picture on Findagrave. I have added a few memorials of pictures I have taken on my treks and will be adding more. I will be glad to transfer any who are not my relatives. If I have a relative of anyone's that is married to one of my relatives, I will be glad to transfer them - just ask!

Four generations of my paternal relatives include Faver, Alford, McMurrey(ay), Bethel, Willis, Boyett, Medford, Seymour, Kerr, Johnson, Fleming, Rogers, Baker & Jones.

Four generations of my maternal relatives include Jackson, Brown, Kelly, Stephens, Grimmett, Wynn, Hughes, Lyles, Holt, Johnson, Marshall & Little.

I have a few holes on both sides that I am determined to fill!

Well I am sitting here laughing at myself for the stupid mistake I just made. I asked you to e-mail me and didn't give you my e-mail. Sorry about that.

Durrill Cemetery in Pettis County
I also found this reg. the cemetery:

UPDATE: Oct. 5, 2007, from Vesta L. DeRiso
"The Durrill Cemetery has been destroyed. The farmer (not Sam Anderson) who
owns the land plowed it up and tossed the stones. There are 3 stones still in
the woods - and two of them are not on the list - probably because the woods
had already claimed them. One of them is Mary G., wife of M. Reed. The other
is Ruth, wife of Jacob Yankee (which would be significant). She is Ruth
Goodnight Yankee. The Goodnights have kept their cemetery in good order, and
they might want to know that the stone is there.

Durrill Cemetery in Pettis County
Hello,
I notice that you had some requests for this cemetery. I started researching to find a location to photograph the stones, but in the process, I found a message board from back in 2007 that was on Ancestry.com. Here are some of the comments that followed the thread about the cemetery:

Comment #1
The Durrill Cemetery has been destroyed, for anyone who is interested. It was plowed under and turned into a cornfield. The stones were tossed. Very, very disappointing.
Comment #2
The current landowner's father used some of the headstones for a sidewalk years ago and the current landowner wouldn't allow descendants to visit the cemetery. I'm just greatful that someone documented who was there.
It's a disgrace that some people have no better sense of history.
Comment #3
I photographed the 3 stones that remained. I don't know that two of them were recorded before - and they only remain because they're not at all visible (unless you know where to look). The third stone was pretty much washed clean. None of my family stones remained. Yes, it's a disgrace. These were the oldest residents of Pettis County, and they have been very badly treated. It's not just the landowner's fault, though. This cemetery should have been protected.

I just wanted to let you know so that you aren't waiting for the pictures. I'm very sorry....
Linda

Question about Nancy Stephen Brown
My grandmother is Lillian Kelley Cannon, daughter of Josie and John Gary Kelley. After John's death, Josie married Harmon H. Brown. I did not know until I was looking for picture of graves that another set of Browns existed. I knew there were two sets of Kelleys. I was even more surprised to learn that Nancy outlived Harmon by several years. Could you shed some light on their family? I am assuming a divorce was in there somewhere??? Please contact me at firekatt134@gmail.com.
Thanks!
