I just had my 68th birthday, <-----updated 2015. I like genealogy, and the many visits to cemeteries that I have done in my research of family history. I love photography, and have over 27 thousand photos on Flickr.com. I like true mysteries when they have some chance of being solved. Like right now I have a picture of a headstone for Owen Masterson, but I don't know where the headstone is. Someday I will find out I bet. Note Added a couple of hours later: I found it right away! I added two pictures to it. It was the 2nd name I looked for and I found both people's headstones within a couple of hours. How cool is that? My thousands of photos I mentioned are not all of cemeteries and headstones. They include family, horses, dogs, cats, scenery, particularly waterfalls and woods, flowers, sunrises, sunsets, and nearly anything that is legal, interesting, pretty or all three. I have a granddaughter, and I love her to pieces, as well as her mother, my daughter. I also have a son. I like sightseeing, exploring old roads. I like Crime Shows, both the fictional and the true ones. I live in Oregon.
RE: Infant McHargue #18924386 I'm grateful for the Obituaries I have found and people have posted. Yeah I have found mistakes in some of them. Have gotten a LOT of good leeds and clues that have helped me link Family.
Infant McHargue #18924386 I believe fairly strongly that the infant is the child of James John McHargue (Memorial #26045997) and his wife Mary Emma Keeney (Memorial #26046000).
James John McHargue is my 1st Cousin 4x removed. I have been working on his Family. I've been piecing his family together using his Obituary. He had 8 Children. 3 Died in infancy, 4 (1 son, 3 daughters) were alive.
I believe also that Lenora May McHargue (Memorial #26045994) and James McHargue (Memorial # 26045996) are also children of James and Mary, both infants.
I would be curious as to the layout of the Head Stones to see who is next to who. That can tell a lot as to relationship. Any Chance your going back?
Burt Smith - Memorial #17972227 I live in Richardson, Texas and for about the last year I have been working with a small group of researchers who have been researching the families and the history of the Brazos River in Bosque and Hill counties. Ultimately one of our members intends to write a book about the first settlers along the river from Smith Bend to up near where Fort Graham used to be. Just today one of our members reminded the group that we need to research Burt Smith and family, and it was then that I first became aware that Jennie Hearne was his wife. Which really raised my interest and eyebrows.
It turns out that I'm a Hearne descendant, having descended from Jennie's aunt, Mary Hearne who married John Underwood. And of course I know that Jennie was the daughter of Ebenezer Hearne the first sheriff of Stanly County, NC. Etc., etc.
It did not take me long at all to find the subject memorial and your name. I appreciate what you have written in Burt Smith's biography, and am hoping that you will have more information with which to begin our research effort on him and his family. The group that I work with tries to obtain information from original primary-sources, but it is always helpful if we can find something of a "roadmap" with which to focus our efforts. The person who brought up Burt Smith informed us that there are a number of boxes of original material stored at the Bosque County Historical Society, and in these boxes are several letters relating to Jennie (Hearne) Smith and how she got back to her family. So I anticipate that I'll be going down to Meridian, Texas to go through those boxes in the near future. I will certainly be glad to share any gems I find with you in exchange for your help in getting us started. (And I'd sure appreciate a copy of the letter you mentioned).

Memorial 23023509 First of all, thanks for all the photos you have put on findagrave. This is an invaluable site for people wanting to join genealogical organizations that require proof of birth/death but must have picture of stone. Memorial 23023509 Clarinda Penland Wood. She was supposedly Clarinda Dix or Dicks, who married Levi E Penland in Buchanan Co MO in 1848. He died abt 1861 in Benton Co OR. This information comes from "Genealogical Material in Oregon Donation Land Claims" (online database). Clarinda apparently married a Mr. Wood abt 1868, according to unsourced material online. You might want to remove the "I don't know" paragraph from the memorial page and replace it with the above information.
Saint Rose Cemetery Hi! I wondered if you would know where I could get more information about people possibly buried in Saint Rose Cemetery. I'm looking for a couple of ancestors that died in Junction City. Their granddaughter, Eva Martin married into the Wilhelm family. Thanks!
