Bio and Links
Bio Photo Not long ago genealogical research was limited to retired intellectuals who wrote family histories that were little more than repositories of dates and places. More and more people today are wanting to record the lives and experiences of their parents, grandparents and other ancestors. Books are now being written filled with stories, humor and interesting events as well as family relationships. But these books are not always as widely available as they could be. People continue to put more and more writing on tombstones, but size and cost are the limitations. Personal and family websites are becoming more popular since they provide more room to write, but there are drawbacks, such as when they completely disappear from the net. That is why this website is so popular. It is easy to define family relationships and link between relatives as well as add some rather large biographies. This is why it is of interest to me. I must also give credit to those who untiringly record cemeteries that produce leads that I have followed when nothing else has been available.

Joseph Jackson, #114131807

Would you mind making a copy of Joseph's marker and attach it to his wife Elizabeth. Her memorial is #14433201.

RE: John F. Morris
Thanks for being so prompt. Actually, Leavenworth is unique in that there are two veterans cemeteries within a couple miles of each other. One is on Fort Leavenworth and the other is adjacent to the VA hospital. So, they're easily confused. Again, thanks for fixing this so quickly. Makes my life so much easier. Mary Ann

I did delete my version of this memorial, I believe you first had him in Long Creek Cemetery and as best as I can learn it must have dissolved and become Waverly cemetery.

I found a Baby Mary Gams, 1917, in the Bridger, Montana Cemetery, would that be Mary Gams that you are looking for?

Greetings Mr. Goms

It looks like we are related. I am a Snodgrass Cousin.

I have invited you to my private family tree website.

Perhaps you can update your families on the site.

I believe he is buried beside Mariah however that side of the stone was never carved maybe if he is close family you could have it engraved for him.
