Family History & Genealogy are my passion as well as my husband Kenny, four daughters and their wonderful families, and my parents and ancestors; these are the ties that bind us all together. Finding and sharing clues are both a challenge and a joy.
Rufus J. Hoke Lena: Your biography for Rufus J. Hoke was so very interesting - memorial #33375307 buried at Fairmount Cemetery in Cape Girardeau, Mo. I am a volunteer here in Cape and have taken pictures of all the graves at Fairmount and the other city cemetery. They had him listed as Rufus Hope so I had made a memorial page for him but the location of his grave is still unknown. I deleted the page with the name spelled Hope and added a picture to your page of an area where he is likely to be buried. Your story would make an excellent newspaper article if you would care to contact Sharon Sanders at the Southeast Missourian - she writes articles "Out of the Past". Thanks for all you do to make history interesting for all of us. Ruth Smith
