Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! I was born and raised in Howell County, Mo. Moved to Newton, Kansas at age 15, then to Texas at 20. I got interested in geneology in about 2000, and really enjoy finding relatives who don't know they are! My mom's family came from northern Tennessee, the Overton, Fentress and Pickett county region, and my dad's family is from Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa and Ontario, canada. I've been doing Find-A-Grave memorials for a while now and enjoy it very much. When I decide to upload a memorial, I use all my resources to try and learn all I can about the individual first, so I can include a decent bio. I believe they deserve that much from me. Hard as I try though, I do make mistakes. If you happen to discover one, please drop me a line and I'll fix it!

Loucinda Sells
Mr. Carroll,

Loucinda Crouch Sells is my paternal grandfather, Thomas Washington Crouch, Sr.'s sister. You have her listed in the Upchurch Cemetery in Fentress County, Tennessee when she is actually buried alongside her husband and children at the Davidson Cemetery in Pickett County, TN. I do very much appreciate all of the hard work you have done on Loucinda's memorial and many others. As she is my great aunt, I would respectfully request that you transfer her memorial to the correct location. I would further request that you consider transferring her memorial to me for future upkeep. I would be truly honored if you would consider my request.

Solomon Sells

I am a descendant of Solomon Sells, Find A Grave Memorial# 38193152, and his wife, Margaret (Ashbaugh) Sells.

I do thank you for putting Solomon and Margaret in a cemetery, but I am wondering what you have found that indicates they are here? I tried to request a picture of their stones, but a request has already been made, so I cannot request another picture.

Is there a cemetery listing of the Miller Cemetery? Is this cemetery near the land that Solomon was living on? I'm "assuming" it must be near his property. Did this Miller family marry into the Sell family?

As you can tell, I'm a most interested Sells researcher. Thank you with any answers you can give me.

RE: Samuel Sells
John, Several of us who research in the Overton area do not believe he is buried in Green Hill. Green Hill was not established as a cemetery until after 1900. According to the 1987 Roll Call book that I have there was no headstone at the time of that transcription. A later Roll Call book also does not show it. All of this discussion came up after I contacted you. One person is going to check and see if there is a family member still in the area to get more info from. I believe from what I have read that the actual disposition of Samuel's body is as you indicate, unknown. I believe that the simplest thing is that the memorial in Green Hill be denoted as a memorial for a cenotaph -- headstone placed in memorial for someone when the actual burial is not known. This would solve the problem all the way around. The manager of the memorial has offered to transfer it to me, which I accepted, but the transfer has not been made as yet. I just wanted to make sure that you had no other info beyond what is on your memorial for Samuel. Thank you.

Jeremiah Benjamin King
John, I was looking at memorial 38087085 for Jeremiah Benjamin King. I saw you had him listed as dying in Andersonville Prison Camp. His war record states he died in Belle Isle, VA. I was just curious if you had anything showing he died at Andersonville, thanks!

Chester Y Dobbs
John, see that you have moved Chester's memorial to the Martin cemetery in Nowata county. I was at the cemetery Tuesday and took pictures as confirmation. My wife doesn't remember why but I assume he was buried at Martin to be near his parents.

Thanks for working with me on this. I also see you have loaded memorials for Chester's brothers in Mane Village, MO. Are you related?
