My name is O. John, I am a single male, 55 yo, living on four private acres just outside the city of St. Louis. I am creative, spiritual, community minded and generous. My interests include my house, the garden, collecting "old stuff", history, geneology, working-out, and body art.
I am attracted to people who have lived unusual lives and who can express their emotions and identity candidly.
"Who so would be a man must be a nonconformist. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind." ~Emerson

RE: Gustave Crecelius I am related directly to Crecelius family. I don't know how to Gustave b/c i haven't done a whole lot of research into that family. it's a distant relation and seems to be interwoven into several lines of my family.
RE: Millican Grove Cemetery John, I failed to mention previously. You probably need to check the alternate spelling - FLINN. I do see we entered a James W. FLINN 1 Aug 1889 - 4 Jan 1961 (Tn. PFC US Army WWI).
There are several stones at Millican Grove with the surname spelled FLINN.
Weather improved and we were able to get out today to take pics in Sevier County -- maybe the weather will hold up and Millican Grove is definitely on our list for return visit. - Dee
RE: Millican Grove Cemetery Hi John and thank you for your kind words. We've been to Millican Grove Cemetery several times. The last time I was looking for a Flynn and saw the stone as we pulled into the cemetery. I was amazed at the number of Flynns we saw this visit. I think darkness drove us away and so it is possible that we missed your grandfather's grave. I am a bit concerned that you mentioned MUllican Grove but surely it was a mispelling in the obit. I am pretty familiar with all the cemeteries in Sevier County and not aware of any with a similar name. I have been anxious to go back to Millican but the extreme cold weather has kept us away from any - HOPEFULLY, a warming trend is on the way and we will make this a priority. Hope to send you the info soon. - Dee
