Note: Information about Jacob and Mary Stauffer Varnes and some of their descendants has been taken from the following family history:

Special thanks to Julie Oliver for recording tombstone information at Bethel Christian Church near Anabel, MO, which has been used in some of the memorials.

Records of Ken O'Neal have been invaluable in creating memorials in East Liberty Presbyterian Cemetery in Vanderbilt, PA.

Elizabeth Ellsberry's Cemetery Records of Macon Co., MO, 1963, has been a great help for memorials in Macon Co., MO.

I try to follow the FAG guidelines concerning obituaries.

The question of initials in proper names has recently come up. I am trying to follow the FAG guidelines of using a period after a middle initial: "Concerning punctuation in proper names, always use normal English rules, such as always use a period after a Middle Initial."

Thank you for the updates for Angeline Nelson #134616885. Could you provide your source and if you have an obituary for her, I would appreciate receiving it. She is married to a relative of mine. Thank you.

RE: Alice Clement Thatcher
I have added her obituary but there isn't a lot of info to help.
There is still your memorial for Alice Morse Thatcher when I did a search on in 1900 there was a Alice Thatcher living in Pueblo with two children Frank M and Gertrude who were shown as her children, I found a couple of entries in Denver in the mid 1900-1910 time they lived in a couple of different address's in Denver mostly to do with an Electrical Company. I still have a bit of research to do on them to try and make sense and I will let you know if I find something.

RE: Alice Clement Thatcher
Good news and bad news I haven't yet received the obit for Alice Clement Thatcher however the latest obits I got yesterday were requested just a matter of a few days before hers so I am expecting to receive it very very soon, I know they have a backlog as the man who was helping them had to have surgery and will not be available again to January However Tabitha is doing a grand job getting them done and sent out as soon as possible
Hope to be able to send you it by the end of next week at the latest

Joseph Varns
I looked ahead on the 1990 index for Grace Lawn Cemetery and Joseph does not appear in the 1990 index. He also does not appear in the Elkhart Truth obits. An index can be viewed at They go back to about 1920.

RE: Varns memorials
I have taken about 3000 photos of Grace Lawn Cemetery in Middlebury. I may take a couple of months to get through the entire lot.
