I was born and raised in northwest Missouri with some of my various family lines being some of the earliest settlers not only in northwest Missouri, but also in Missouri as early as the early 1820's.
I have one son who is presently serving our country in the United States Marine Corps. And yes, I am one very proud MOM.
I've been doing genealogy for over 30 years. Some of surnames I am researching include three different Williams lines, Butner, Hagey, Criss/Crist, Hedrick/Headrick, Swope, Brockman, Tanner, Archer, Bridgeman, Groom & Grooms, Ogle, Brannick, Anders, Barringer, just to name a few.
Edit Thank you for the correction for Ethel Baringer. I created the memorials in that cemetery from an old cemetery list, and had no way of knowing if all the information was correct. I appreciate your help.
Catharine Baringer Bev, I believe that you are correct the this Catharine is a daughter, thus the John E. Baringer on the same stone could be a son. Or it could be that this is a totally different Catharine who married John E. I do believe that John J. was married to a Catharine and had a daughter Catharine (1850 census). None of the Baringers are related to me and I put some of the records on Find A Grave for a cousin. If you are closely related and would like any of those memorials transferred to you I would be happy to do so. I will remove the spouse designation as you requested. If you get this family sorted out, I would like to know the results. Thanks, Dick
