In the early 80's my brother and I worked on our family history the old fashioned way, by letter and books. I've taken up the search again and as they say, the rest is history.
A special thank you to all of the family members that contributed to this labor of love.
Jacks - Matthews, Garshwiler, Seeley
Richardson - Dawes, Elburn, Purdy, Alger
Elkins - Pierce, Gream, Guill

John Wesley Norfleet I received a message from you that I had him listed as a husband of Beatrice Pierce Carrier. You are right, but I can't remove him as her husband because the memorial belongs to you. You must remove him. I thank you for the correction as it only makes Find A Grave better.
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 39922838 Jolene, The reason I created the memorial was because I was taking a picture of every grave stone in Langley Cemetery as I did with all the cemeteries near Easton. I really know nothing about the family. I do not remember for sure, but I assume that someone sent me a request to add the additional information about the family. I do not have that email requesting to add that information. If you can send me the proof of the correct information I will be glad to change it.
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 39922838 Hi Jolene, When I look at John Marshall Rogers memorial it says it was created by a Roger Newby. I don't know anything about this memorial, that I can remember anyway. I can remember going to a cemetery in Weston, MO, but it would have been to take a picture of a grave stone request and I do not see any picture of a grave stone for Mr. Rogers. Please let me know how you connected me to his memorial. Gary S.
RE: Jacks Family Jolene, what do you know about Oscar Edmund Jacks. I found a Missouri Application for Marriage License for him and Jane Colburn Hill, 8 May 1930, on Archives. His age at the time is 36, which puts his birth in 1894. But, maybe this isn't our Oscar. He is 34 at death in 1937. I'm waiting for a hard copy of his death certificate, hoping for burial info.
If you would like, I'll send an email link to my Self/Jacks family tree.
Jacks Family Thank you so much for your Jacks bios. You made my Jacks search so much easier. I was stalled at Wm M Jacks (1789-1873) until I found your Find A Grave Memorial. Also, there is a second F A G memorial for a few Jacks people, the data-only type in the Anders-Jacks Cemetery. Again, thanks so much for all of your excellent work.
Garshwiler and Related families Hi all! I have information on Garshwiler Family Tree and others. Feel free to contact me. Many names and history/stories...details of life..etc. I did this family research back in the 80's when I was 16. It was so much fun when I had the time.
