Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in researching my family tree in about 1987. From the beginning a very important tool in my research "tool chest" has been visiting cemeteries and photographing stones of family members. This photo is of me and my research partner, my sister, M. Bishop. I'm the one really stylin' in my fashionable long skirt, however no shoes. And she is smartly turned-out in her groovy high-heels, Easter basket and side-arm! Just recently we decided to post our many cemetery pictures with short bios to findagrave. We tag-team, I post the information and my sister posts the pictures. There are very few of our postings that are not our family members. However, there have been times, while in a cemetery photographing, I've seen stones with my family names and snapped the picture "just in case" they turned out to be in my tree. We have gone ahead and posted those pictures as we felt they might help someone looking for that person. For those not in my family, I would be glad to transfer ownership to a family member. Large numbers of entries are not our bag, but creating well presented memorials for our loved ones is. Our family lines are; Simmons, Stokes, Miller, Chennault, Coburn, King, Johnson, Walker, Thornton, Bryson, Vassar, James, Thomas & Tiller - plus many other extended families discovered as we work back through the generations.

RE: Thank You
One of my pet peeves is people who put up lots and lots of memorials without doing grave marker pictures.

Ah well that to shall pass

happy Easter

Fairmont Cemetery
The following memorial is associated to the "Fairmont Cemetery" which does not appear to be a real cemetery. The two cemeteries near Fairmont are: Collett and Zion Lutheran.

Thank you for the heads up on this one. I have added his full name to my memorial and made some changes. I will have to send them to an administrator to be merged since neither of us can do that. Thanks, I appreciate it.

Rebecca Chennault (#8672630)
I was able to go to Hunter Cemetery on a sunny day and was able to take another picture of Rebecca Jane Alexander Chennault's stone. I have this person as a request I had fulfilled last year; I'm don't know that you were the one that asked for the request but since you are maintaining the page I assume so. Anyway ... there is now a better picture of the stone up on the page. The other Chennaults also have an upgrade.

RE: Hudson's in Waggoner Cemetery, Cedar County , MO
I uploaded the JO, MH, and INFT. There wasn't a memorial for the unknown smooth stone that I could find. Now that I am looking at the initials, I wonder if JO is James, MH is Mark, the smooth one possible Annie or Pink, and then an infant.

RE: Hudson's in Waggoner Cemetery, Cedar County , MO
Do you want me to email them to you or are you going to make memorials for those with dates?

It lays out like this in a row:

Annie and James...the a marker with MH, then a marker with INFT, then the small stone that is so smooth you can't read it, then a marker with JO, then Mark. I am not sure who these are between Annie/James and Mark. But they are listed in all the cemetery books I have researched at the library as Hudsons.

Lester and Martha are farther down a few rows away and then Donna Fay is off by herself.

Anyway, let me know how you want me to send or upload.

Hudson's in Waggoner Cemetery, Cedar County , MO
I fulfilled your request for Jim Hudson today. In your request you had a note to snap pics of other Hudson's nearby. I found headstone or markers for:

Annie 1870-1912
Unknown Hudson (Illegible - too smooth)
Mark 1896-1941

Lester "Buck" Mar 10,1903 - Aug 23, 1991
Martha Sept 10, 1902 - Jun 16, 1976

Donna Faye Feb 16, 1928 - Sept 4, 2006

Annie and Mark had memorials so I uploaded those pics.

Would you like to have the rest of the Hudson pics?

Lula Baker
Just a quick note to let you know that I have deleted my memorial for Lula so that yours will be the one in place. Yes, the Find A Grave guidelines favor me since mine was the older memorial but yours had more info along with an additional photo. So it no big deal. She has a memorial in place and that's the important thing.
