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)

Find A Grave Memorial# 38119684
This is the grave for Susan Barker Barnhart. You list her parents different than what I have. I have James W Barker and Margaret Jain Littleton. I have a piece of paper with all the children's names and birth dates, which was handed down by one of their children. I have the same birth date as you, but different parents. Do you have proof of Susan's parents? Would love to compare notes.

We were just down in Osage and Miller counties the second weekend of July for a family reunion and to do a little research at the library in Linn. What do you know about Civil War camps along the Missouri River, specifically near St. Auberts?

I'm so sorry. It appears that I have failed to respond to your message from a month ago. Sherry was my mother in law. I am married to her son, Gary Wayne.

Right after her passing, we had so many friends and relatives visiting from out of town. I was very sick with an upper respiratory infection during that time. We had over 600 attend the funeral. She was loved by so many. It was such a beautiful service.

Again, I am so sorry I have not responded to your message. It's very nice to meet you!

William H Woolery & Lula Speaker
I don't remember a place where you can list the source when you do edits, unless I add an additional writing on the pages. May be I am wrong. Lula died in 1911, so as you said his second wife is listed on the WWI Drat which I have added to my ancestry file. The only thing I did not have was his death certificate. I don't believe that I clipped the obituary out of the paper when he died since I was not back in Sedalia at that time. I use a lot of census records, but you can be fooled by some of them as I have found out lately. is good at giving hints, but they don't always apply.

William H Woolery
First of all I have a picture of him with his first wife Lula May Speaker She was the daughter of Abraham Speaker and Hulda Gates. I posted a picture of her death certificate on my Renfro Family ancestry tree. There are marriage records for William H Woolery to Lula May Speaker and also to Lottie Lucille Lowery. I was also able to pull up her death certificate on the Mo Secretary of State Web Site. I did not have a death certificate for William H since he died after 1963. I used the census mainly to help me, but I did copy some trees from others and verified that they appeared to be correct. Also on the listing for the IOOF Otterville Cemetery, it lists Lula and states she was married to William, but that he and his second wife are buried in Florence, Morgan County, MO (Mt Olive Cemetery). I do not offhand remember if I have their memorials, but would gladly give them to you as they are not that closely related to me. As I remember, I created the memorial for Lottie after verifying thru the death certificate. One death certificate, that I verified had Woolery spelled as Woollery.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

RE: Hugh McNamee
I see at this site, that George is mentioned as being moved to Rose Hill Cemetery but no other McNamee. Any news on where Hugh or Alice were buried? Hugh's widow, Alice Seeds McNamee, is in 1800 census living in Antietam.
