Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was born, we lived in Caldwell County, MO and now live in Daviess County, MO. I have lived in these two counties all my life, except for 7 years when I was a child and lived near Abilene, KS.
I have always enjoyed sitting at the table at family dinners and hearing the older people tell stories about people and times in the past.
I became involved in looking for my genealogy when I got a computer a few years ago. My grandparents are buried in Caldwell County and some of my great and great-great grandparents as well. Some of the names I am researching are LOONEY, SLOAN, FARR, GREEN on my side and HOOD, GARRISON, STORY, HARRIS on my husband's side.

Per your message to me about Breckenridge Cemetery vs Rose Hill Cemetery, and your picture of the actual tombstone, I have deleted the burial information at the Breckenridge site for

RE: Annie Slagle
I just noticed it and so asked. I have no information and the other person quoted a person as their source; usually that's good information. Not always; no problem. Grace

RE: Thompson Family History
Thank you very much for talking to me. It look like the people involved in the management of that cemetery do a very poor job in regards to providing leadership in the burial of our my ancestors. I've been their talked to many people who should have been able to help me locate my buried family members graves but also have no records? Thanks for your help. Fred

RE: Thompson Family History
Hello, I'm confused, what is your interest or connection to the person John Benton Thompson. You show a photo of his tombstone located inside the Jamesport Memorial Cemetery? He is my Great-Grandfather. I'm looking for a cemetery map that shows his grave location because my Grandfather and Grandmother are buried with him in the same location but there does not a plot map? Any help you can offer I would greatly thankful. Fred
