Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Leslie MITCHELL Smith. I have been working on family history research on my husband's lines since 1999. I enjoy putting all of the "puzzles" together.

I am currently working on putting all of my husband's family onto FindaGrave. If you have any additions and/or corrections, please feel free to contact me. I also have my files posted on

I have been helped by so many others over the years that I am very willing to help gather information for other researchers. I do still have children at home, so I try to do my research while they are in school. So, please be patient with me :o)

RE: Coffee Creek Christian Church Cemetery
I think that photo belongs to the other William Hopkins because it looks like 1850-1851? I will remove this photo and check thru my others to see if we do have the correct one. We have been there twice recently and may go back once more before winter. Some of the stones are in very, very bad shape.

Tom Byrom photo request
Regarding your photo request for Tom Byrom in Greene Lawn Cemetery of Walnut Grove, Missouri - the "footstone" which can be seen at the base of Tom Byrom's headstone is for Robert Fagan. You can see his memorial with headstone and footstone photos at

re Mt View photo request
It would make photo volunteers job easier if you could call or email the office at Mt View and inquiry where your ancestors are buried and if they have a headstone. If there isn't a marker, all you'd get is a photo of the location of burial. :/

Mahala Morse
Hello Leslie,
I made a trip to Economy cemetery today to take a look a Mahala Morse's stone again and took another photo. I am pretty confident that the death date on her stone is Oct 28, 1880, although my existing photo is probably a better copy then what I took today. I will go ahead and add the close up photo to her memorial.

Hope I was able to answer your question about the date.

Lloyd Ellis in Everegreen
Hi Leslie-

Currently, there is no marker visible on the grave for your Lloyd Ellis.

I have been working on Block 54 for the past year and have tried to find a marker for him (# 140875102) several times I have been hoping to catch the grounds crew who have helped so much in the past. My days have not been so lucky as they are busy with burials and I have not approached them.

Your grave site of Lloyd is right next to the grounds shop, so I am confident we may find a temp marker. In the mean time, I am posting a pic of his grave location. l be going back this week to see if they can help me probe for a temp marker.

The cemetery always placed a temp marker, and then would place the family marker over it. So I am hoping to find a temp marker. There wer many burials in this lot, and I wondered if you might have an old family picture of the marker, if there was one?

Please feel free to email me at sherrill50 at comcast dot net. And I will let you know for sure, what I find for this week!

Elsie Van Eaton
Leslie, I found Elsie and sent you a correction for her location and added a photo. Have you checked your edits? I also added a photo of the Van Eaton family plot to both Elsie and John's memorials so you can see the location of her grave. If you want those removed from their memorials, let me know.

RE: Donald H. Blankenship
You are welcome! This will be a great resource. They've worked really hard on it. BTW, how did you find out about Elsie's burial? I haven't seen her son in a long time so hadn't been able to ask like I told you I would. I've been working a lot. :(
