This verse came from the grave marker of a relative who died in 1900 in Warrenton, MO.

"Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God" - Matthew 5:8

My FAG activities are primarily with the Mitchell, Waller, Wells, Cox and Wilson families and their relatives.

Here is a poem from the Remembrance Card of David Waller Mitchell, my great grandfather who died on October 12, 1909.

He served as a Private in the Confederate Army from Pittsylvania County, VA and survived Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg in PA.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in his wisdom has recalled,
The boon his love had given,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe in heaven.

I was putting a grave picture on for his son, Bruce and noticed that you have a death certificate on for Keene. I was wondering if you might change the photo order. The couple picture is fantastic and deserves the top spot. I hope you do not mind me saying so.

Hello, I just wanted to let you know that the information I found today in my research revealed that the Colby Shrader that Ms. VirJean had was incorrect.. parents to this Colby Shrader were John Shrader and Martha Hardin Shrader.. I made the corrections, and hopefully yours would still be correct with different B day and D death.. I see you have no cemetery listed .. maybe this information can be found.. I will keep researching and try to get more information.. Just wanted to let you know, that your Colby with dates given do match up with Christopher Columbus Shrader as father.. Thank you.. He is my great x4 grandfather.. Julie

Hello, I was checking out Colby Shrader's memorial as just had someone concerned about information.. Please see memorial ## 70063837
COLBY SHRADER that was created in 2011, see below.. We have documented memorial picture with the correct birth year and correct death date.. The Colby Shrader that you have listed does not match the headstone.. Could you please review and remove. Thank you kindly, Julie Eskridge Taylor

William Bascom Giles is my husband's great-great grandfather. Fred Hatton Jr. > Fred Hatton Sr.> Lenora Sue Giles> Sydnor Coleman Giles> William Bascom Giles. We are planning on being buried in this cemetery so I do not want to transfer him. Thank you for asking though.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for maintaining this listing. I am the son of Elsie Jones Lester, the daughter of Sidney and Emily Jones.

Just recently I joined Find A Grave, but I am looking forward to the challenge.

Thanks again,

RE: Boss Akins
I did find his wife's death certificate. She's also buried there at Sherwood.

I tried to transfer Jessie to you going by the number that you gave me in your message, (#127221441) but it wouldn't work. I saw that you have a contributor page also, but I didn't know whether I should use the number on there to make the transfer, so I decided to ask you if I should do that.

How about if I use #46600245???

I don't know where his wife is buried. Couldn't find her in a search.
