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)

Hi Bonnie,

I guess my source would have to be me. Frona was my Great Grandmother. I am the person who added a picture and a picture of the newspaper's obituary.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

RE: McNamee Cemetery
I don't have any local experience, but I will ask around as there are several folk (Brent Nimmo of Find A Grave comes to mind) who have done this work in the county and local area, so I will see what I can learn.

Thanks very much for caring to do this.

RE: Nancy Cochran
Thanks for sending this message - I went back to Nancy Frances Ferguson and rechecked my page - I think what threw me off on the birthplace was the comment added on findagrave that she was born in Illinois - but the census reports show she moved from Missouri to Illinois as a small child - so I have moved her birth back to Missouri - thank you again for helping me to correct my tree
