I'm retired, now, living in the beautiful Sonora Desert just 50 miles west of Wickenburg, Arizona. I've become more and more interested in my family history starting back in about 2001. I have made several trips to Missouri in the last few years searching mainly for the graves of my ancestors. I have hiked through some remote areas but success was usually the result. In addition to Medlock, my family names are Robinett, Tuttle, Raney, Gideon, Purtle, Curtis and Buck, all from Missouri and Arkansas.
Nathaniel B.Medlock I sent to your email a couple of things. This link provides a picture of Webster hospital. http://www.historic-memphis.com/memphis-historic/civil-war-memphis/civil-war-memphis.html
Nathaniel's name was spelled incorrectly on the hospital records as "Meadlock". He definitely died on 15 September 1863 at the Union Hospital, Webster, in Memphis, TN. He was definitely a Union Solider, 33rd MO Volunteer Company B. The cause of death is recorded as Inflamation of Kidneys.
I will look some more soon! Thanks for giving me a mystery.
I was on a Facebook page for Find A Grave volunteers and looked at your family's page. I read they lost 2 son's in the Civil War. I didn't see Nathaniel listed. I was wondering if you had any leads to where he is buried? I wouldn't mind taking a look for you if you would like another set of eyes to look. Feel free to send me any information you have and I would be happy to try. I have been successful before.
Lucy Gullick Mike, thanks for posting the young picture of Aunt Lucy. I will call it to the attention of her granddaughters. I was a cousin to you by marriage, and am a findagrave.com member. Feel free to contact me. Kathryn Robinett
Medlock Graveyard, Shannon Co., MO Mike, I read with interest your memorials for the people buried in Medlock Graveyard. And thanks for the photos. Two of the people you documented are members of my Springer family (distantly related)--Jane and Jessie Summers, children of Daniel and Minerva (Springer) Summers. Minerva Springer was the daughter of Rev. John L. Springer and Nancy Ann Vaughn. This information is from her death certificate. She died April 12, 1912, in Shannon County and is buried in the Rector Cemetery. According to what I have found on the Texas Co, MO Genweb site, the Rev. John L. Springer, along with the Rev. George Cole, organized the first Baptist church in Texas Co. and held the first services there in August, 1846. Rev. John Springer and his wife Nancy were still living in 1880 in Jackson Township, Shannon Co, but I have no record for them after that date. If my genealogy research is correct he is the first cousin of my g-g-grandfather, Elijah W. Springer, who moved to Lawrence Co., MO from Giles Co, TN circa 1840, and he may be the John Springer who preached at E. W. Springer's on October 19, 1844 (from the James Dobbins Hillhouse Diary).

RE:Jauritta Pewitt Mike, I have linked Jauritta to her parents as requested. Also, I transferred this memorial to you. I am not related at all. This cemetery is about 5 miles from my home in Salem, MO. Went there several times to get all the memorials that weren't already done. Thanks for the extra info.
Ethel Walker Hello Sorry it took so long for me to respond, I was out of town for over a week and just got back last night. I have transfered management to you of Ethel Walker, no she is not related to me. I did however, list all Walker's buried in Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Glad to have helped, and good luck with all your research. K.Walker klw*51*
