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)

Robert Franklin
Good morning,
It truly is sad about Robert, and yes, some memorials do "call" my name. I have even requested a transfer just so that I could add to a bio and then returned it to the original owner. I truly believe that some of us have been "called" to help honor those who are gone.

Thought you might like to add a bio, etc. for Robert's parents so have transferred them to you. Hope this is okay with you.

Hugs back to you & have a wonderful day.

Julia Foster Harmon
Hello Bonnie-

I saw that you had posted a wonderful message for Jacob Harmon, as being your 3rd great grandfather.
He was also my 3rd great grandfather. I have been
trying to find more information on his wife, Julia
Foster Harmon, and have not had any luck. Would you
happen to know when she died- and where?

Thank you for any information you can give me.

A distant cousin,

Pat Johnson

RE: Unknown O'Bryan
Sorry, it isn't usually a practice for me either. It was only because I was putting a grave photo request in for her and thought the added identification would help them locate the site easier. Sometimes they give up to easily on unknown children or infants. I've received lots of responses before from photo volunteers who do not like to get added info within the requests nor do they usually go to the added effort to read the added info within the memorial. That was the only reason. I also appreciate what you do. Hope I didn't cause a misunderstanding. Keep Smiling, Janice

I don't know Bonnie, it looks like it is on private property and I don't know how to follow those directions?
