RE: Fleek Family photos
Thank you for your kind words. I did update George Fleek's memorial page that I created for him. I felt better once I had the additional information I was looking for.

RE: Fleek Family photos
I just heard back from the cemetery clerk. She did some research for me and was able to verify the very old grave stone is George M. Fleek. He is the son of A.G.B. & Margaret A. Fleek. He died Aug. 20, 1869. 1 Yr. 2 Mo. 26 days.

This at least clears up the year he died and his parents.

Have a great day.

Fleek family grave stones
I was fulfilling a request for a picture of Herbie M. Fleek and took pictures of all of the Fleek's in the family plot. Not sure if you are interested or not but I took pictures of Herbie M., George, Margaret A., Adam G. B. and Daisy M. Fleek. The one grave stone I found most interesting is the grave stone for George. He is buried between Herbie M. and Margaret A. Fleek. His is a very old grave stone. Very hard to read. He Died Aug. 20, 186 (maybe another 6 ) that 4th digit is totally worn off. At the bottom it reads 1 Yr. 2 da. Possibly a son to Margaret and Adam ? I did attach pictures to all of the Fleeks memorial pages and created a memorial page for George.

RE: John J D Fleek
No there isn't a date attached to it. If I ever find one I will let you know.

RE: James Sproat
I do not have an obit for Matilda, but I have been searching for other obits at The Historical Society and I will see if I can find one for her.
Her stone has the death year as 1834-1895 and I looked in Stones and Sites which lists burials in Cedar County and it has the same.
The book may have been written off the Stones - I am not sure.
I will see what I can find the next time I go to Hist. Soc.

RE: James Sproat
You are welcome - I copied the obit as published and you notice it says he is buried at Sand Hill, which is not so. Thanks, Daisy

Elmer A. Evans
I'm a volunteer photographer for Find a Grave and was honoring a request for Martha (Marie) Beighley( Elmer's first wife ). While I was there, I also took a picture of Elmer A. Evans grave marker and posted the picture to his memorial page.

Have a great night.

Robert Sproat Information
Penny, I read articles in the Tipton newspaper. The information I sent to you isn't the story as it appeared as it was quite lengthy. What I submitted was very basic, just an overview. Three men held up a store in Davenport, law enforcement in Tipton were notified the robbers might be headed their way. Robert was shot when they were intercepted 2 miles east of Tipton. President Bush dedicated the memorial in 1990. 2 of the robbers were eventually captured and sent to prison. Hope this provides enough information.

RE: Richard Badertscher
Sure, Penny. No need to credit me for it, it was probably one of the Badertschers who wrote it. I have a thing about obituaries, if not one of the better sources of genealogy, the more interesting.

We write them or at least supply the details for our friends and family members all over the country/world who pass away; pay dearly when they are published; and now are having our pockets picked by the newest of ingenuous entrepreneurs to buy them back in one barely searchable form or another. Or subscribe to umpteen digital newspapers in the middle of nowhere, just to read them.

Whatever happened to that damn fool who tried to patent genes, strands of DNA :)

On second thought, go ahead and credit me, so whoever imagines I infringed on *their* copyrights can sue me. I could use one last crusade before I'm dragged off to the crematorium.

Isaac Wampler in Mineral Creek Cem. in Johnson Co.,Mo.
Are you related to this Isaac Wampler 1825-1916 who is buried in the Mineral Creek Cem. at Leeton in Johnson Co.,Mo. ? Can you tell me if his parent's names were on his death certificate ?
I also can't find Isaac on the 1870 census anywhere. Any idea where he could have been ?
He was on 1850 & 60 in Indiana & 1880 in Johnson Co.,Mo., but can't find him on 1870.
