Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in St. Louis, but my parents moved to Cape Girardeau, Missouri when I was two days old and then to Graves County Kentucky when I was 9 months old.(My parents lived and worked at Paradise Friendly Home from 1966-1969) I now live in Dexter, Missouri.
I am the oldest son of the comedian Dennis Crutchfield and Margaret Douthitt (now Gilbert) and have one brother, David, who lives in Lexington, Kentucky.
In April of 2000, I became the youngest elected Alderman in Dexter, Missouri and the second youngest Alderman to ever sit on the Council. (the youngest was appointed, not elected) I also became the first Alderman to be of Native American Descent(I'm 1/8 Cherokee) the first to have a wife of Hispanic descent, and the first elected Republican from my Ward. I was reelected on April 2nd, 2002. I lost in 2004, but was elected again in 2006.
I have been interested in cemeteries since I was a kid and it always bothered my parents who called it a "morbid hobby". It has paid off now, since cemeteries have helped my knowledge of History. Now when I visit a city and find out that they have a cemetery (or cemteries) with famous graves, I go out of my way to see them (and get pictures for Find-a-grave if they are not already posted). I am a cashier at the Wal-Mart in Cape Girardeau, Mo.
I am married to the former Tracy Randel (she was adopted when she was nine years old. Her birth father was Puerto Rican and her mother was of German descent), who, sadly, was in an accident in August 2010 and has been in a coma since then. I have one step-son, Darrin. No transfer requests please. I've run into too many problems with them.

what kind of legal problems do you have in transferring a site?? I have not heard of that and wondered where in the rules of findagrave? is that?
I just saw a post you made to someone and I was curious.

Re: Robert Wright Mem#: 7977535
Here is additional information culled from the Maryland Archives on Robert Wright (Memorial #: 7977535)

Robert Wright's parents were Solomon Wright III (1717-1792) and Mary Tidmarsh (1719-?).

He was the brother of: William (1751-1783), Thomas, Solomon (?-1832), Mary (1755-?), Ann (1757-?) and Martha Wright Downes (1759-?).

He was the husband of Sarah DeCoursey, daughter of Col. William Coursey (1703-1769) and Rachel Clayton, who he married in 1780.

He was the father of: Robert Theodore DeCoursey Wright (1781-?), William Henry DeCoursey Wright (1795-1864), U.S. consul to Brazil in 1825, Gustavus William Tidmarsh Wright (1784-1823), Clinton Wright, Caroline Wright Augusta (ca. 1782-?), who married Samuel Anderson of Chestertown, Kent County, and Victoria Louisa Wright. He graduated from Kent County school, the forerunner of Washington College and studied law.

He was an Anglican in St. Luke's Parish in Queen Anne's County and Chester Parish in Kent County, Maryland.

He was an Esquire by 1787; active in horse racing, bred fine horses at ''Blakeford", was active in promoting agricultural improvement in Queen Anne's County and was a Maryland member of the committee of correspondence of the American Board of Agriculture.

Oscar Lafayette Norman
The information on the Tombstone is incorrect and incomplete. I know that is shows middle initial is an I...but it could also be inter preted as a small L...His name is Oscar Lafayette Norman. born in Jefferson Co., IL and died in Stoddard Co., Mo

I would like to manage this memorial. I have traced my Norman line to Dexter, Stodfard Co., MO. My mother married in Bloomfield, MO and her father, Robert Norman was here and signed consent as she was only 14.

Cudds, Lawsons, many NC & SC names
Tim, first of all I want to thank you for the service you do for others who are in much the same state I am. Because of age and health I can no longer visit cemeteries. I started my journey in genealogy along in the 80's and at that time I visited many cemeteries in NC and SC but now I no longer have the option. I hope you won't mind may making copies of your photos for my family files on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker. I am trying very hard to leave as much family history as I can for my descendants and others so they will be able to see their heritage. God bless you for the way you are helping other people.

Billie Demint
I was glad to see the post about Billie Demint. I am a descendant of Billie-my great grandmother was his half-sister. She was born near Campbell, MO a few years after he was killed. I've been doing research about him and have a story published

German Evangelical Church Cemetery
Hello Tim: I just ran across your bio on this website and wonder if you could help me? I am a volunteer for findagrave and take pictures here in the Cape area. A lady recently sent me a message asking for help concerning the Rodney's Mill on Hubble Creek at Dutchtown. She and her sister are coming to Cape this Spring to research thier family history - their relative was Martin Rodney. I see you photographed some graves out at the German Evangelical Church Cemetery at Dutchtown. Is that cemetery on private property? Where is it located? My husband and I go to these small cemeteries sometimes and do the "row walking" and take pics of all the graves. It looks like this cemetery needs that badly with all the flooding. Thanks for your help. (I will steer the lady who wants to come to that area to your e-mail address if that is o.k.)
