Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors and they themselves fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Indian Wars,the War for Texas Independence, the Civil War on both sides and World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.
Donít violate copyright.
This may be the most difficult one to adhere to. You must be careful where you take information from, and how you use it. While facts (such as dates and places of birth, marriage, and death) are not copyrightable, the words used to convey that information are. Do not directly copy text but use your own words. Even more important are images. Remember that copyright currently lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator. All those family photographs in your possession? Copyright belongs to the person who took the photograph, and to his/her heirs. The key date at the moment is 1944. By Michael J. Leclerc (Prof. genealogist)

RE: Ardmore, OK
Thanks Bonnie,
You and Diana are two of the rare talented members of FindAGrave, and I have enjoyed working with you. Most are satisfied with adding only names, dates, and places. In fact, one member told me quite curtly, "the less the better."

RE: Ardmore, OK
You must be very proud of Erin. Isn't it wonderful how our kids have accomplished more than we could have ever have hoped to?

Actually, I haven't lived in Ardmore, OK since I was a little girl. Grew up in CA. A short time after my friend & I graduated from nursing school we joined the Air Force where we met our husbands. Mine was a B-52 pilot. He resigned from the service in 1965 and went to work as a pilot for United Airlines. To make a long story short, after he retired we ended up here in the backwoods of Wayne Co, MO where he traded an airplane for a tractor. Love this quiet peaceful life with God's critters to keep up company. Took up genealogy, and then FindAGrave as two of my hobbies.

Jack & Emma Jean Merritt
Hi Bonnie, I feel sure that both are buried in the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church Cemetery as this is what the obituary said on Jack? I don't think the Funeral Home would have made a mistake like that? I don't have the time and energy to try & straighten this out, because I think it is correct.

Let me know if there is something you need me to do that would be easy, I have a lot of sickness going on in my family and don't have the time to follow up like it would take. Let me know if there is something easy I can do.
