Bio and Links
Bio Photo My great, great grandfather inspired my interest in genealogy with all the information he passed down through the family. How I wish I could have met him. He was a very sentimental fellow, recording many family events, happy and sad. To have lost 5 of his 10 children before they reached the age of 23 must have had a significant impact in his life. He wrote poems about his children and a tribute to his wife after she died.

I have always liked visiting cemeteries and have been to many coast to coast but didn't take pictures until I discovered FAG. What a wonderful place to make a memorial for our loved ones and also help others find their ancestors burial places!

RE: samuel r campbell
Dear Joan,
Thank you for your reply. I am still curious about James or Gaines Campbell. It seems he could be a possible brother to Samuel R Campbell. Was there any stone for either of those names in Union Cemetery?

I was looking for the Find A Grave for Samuel G Campbell and realized that one of the pictures posted is for Samuel R Campbell, who died 16 Dec 1886. Do you know if this the father of Samuel G Campbell?

Thank you,
Kay Cloyes

Correction to previous message.
I mistakenly stated in my previous message that the Bailey/Elliston Cemetery was in Section 13 of Richland Township when that is incorrect. It is actually located in "Section 2" of Richland Township, Macon County, MO. Sorry for my mistake. I read the wrong paragraph in the history book for La Plata. The Baity/Shores Cemetery is located in Section 13!

Oops, I found it!
Oops, I found the Bailey/Elliston Cemetery mentioned in a history book for La Plata, Missouri. The cemetery is located in Section 13 of Richland Township, Macon County, MO. Only four stones were found to exists in 2005.

Bailey/Elliston Cemetery.
May I ask where you got your info. to create this cemetery. I am very familiar with the La Plata, Macon Co, Mo. area and I have never heard of a Bailey/Elliston Cemetery located about a mile west of La Plata, Mo. Are you sure this cemetery exists? Some of your memorials come up in the list of burials showing that stone photos are attached to them but upon looking at each memorial there are no photos. Quite confusing. Could you give me some idea where you found the info. to creat the Bailey/Ellisoton cemetery? Thanks,

Transfer please.
Would you consider transfering the memorial for Abby Elizabeth Richardson #18812809 to me. She is a distant relative to me through my Tucker/Magruder family and I would like to add more info. to the bio. area of her memorial. Look forward to managing Abby's memorial. Thank you so much for creating her memorial and all you have done on Find A Grave.

J.K. Robinson
I found Joseph K. Robinson Born 1843 Died 1914 buried in Chapel Grove Cemetery, Clark, MO
I am Debby Maiden and doing research for our church--Perche Baptist Church located between Harrisburg and Sturgeon. I am trying to find all the pastors of our church since it was formed in 1888. I am hoping to get pictures of all the pastors. So many of our records do not give us their names. Only initials. Do you know anyone I can ask about this gentleman? Was he a Baptist minister. I noticed it said Elder on the the marker. Any information you have would be appreciated. Thank you

Sabra Rutherford
I noticed on the memorial for Sabra you have her first husband listed as Birdrick Posey. I am researching my Posey line and found this very interesting. Would you kindly tell me where you found this info? It would be a great help to me.

Find A Grave Memorial# 70845659 for Sabra.

Kindest Regards,
