I have been active in Family History for about 30 years, and love it. I only enter memorials for my family members, so if you find one that I have entered, they or their spouse are related to me. This is a great way to share information and meet distant family members. I have spent 30 years and much time and travel to insure that the information I put on my memorials is correct. Recently, when someone used my information, I ask them to add me as a source. They refused, and I will be removing some of the personal information I have added. If you are a relative, and need this information, you may contact me.
Mary Wheeler Mary Wheeler was the sister of my great grandfather, Jacob Morris Ruddick. My grandmother was Leurenah Minerva Ruddick Spurling. My grandmother died 10 years before I was born, but I always heard that she went by the name Minerva.
Thanks for all the information you have supplied.I guess that makes us distant relatives.
Myrtle Robinson's memorial Hello, I have been maintaining the memorial because a client of mine has asked me to do so - for they are also related to her. They are out of the country at this time so I can not ask them if is it ok with them to transfer to you. When they return, I will find out. That is the best I can do at this time.
Some Missouri Death Certificates are online, some free, some with paid subscriptions to Ancestry, and some thru the county where the death took place. You will have to find out - I have done so many I can't recall where I found it without doing a few hours of research again.
I hope you and yours have a great Holiday Weekend. Megan
Re: Myrtle Robinson Hello Renee, I received your message the end of April and the whole family has had its share of the flu - so please excuse my delay in replying to your message. Just now catching up - as you can imagine!
I am sorry to say I do not have any additional information than what I posted on her memorial: (from notes taken and transcribed)
Research Note: She is buried next to Joseph M. Robinson, her husband (his first wife). Her death certificate reads that David Brown, born Ohio, was her father and Elizabeth Nelson, born IN, was her mother. She was married, age 41 years, 5 months and 7 days old. She was a resident of Monett, MO.
My suggestion would be to contact the local library in Monett and see if they have on film or on the shelves an obituary for her. If they do not, contact the county genealogical society / historical society. You might even want to try to obtain her death certificate.
I'm sorry I don't have any additional information. I hope this is her and this memorial is a start to locating her information.
Fannie Wheeler Fannie Wheeler and William Roland Merrifield were my g-grandparents. My grandfather was Lewis Merrifield. Roland William "Buddy" Merrifield, aka Boswell, was my father. I should have a picture of her gravestone as I did visit the cemetery.
RE: Albert W. and Caroline Scott Bunyan Hi Renee, you are welcome! I always try to take a photo of any related stones and since I didn't, it may not have been there. Since she died after Albert, could it be possible she didn't have a stone?
