Ardalus "Dale" Moore

Thank you for accepting my photo request for Dale Moore. I have just found his branch of the Peterson side of my family and didn't realize the duplicate memorials. Thanks for following up on them. Once there is only one memorial, I will request his family links.

Thank you,
Michael Mussinan

Re: Ralph Nelson Shade # 46194897

Thanks for the information on Ralph Shade regarding his adoption. This is a new situation to me! But I would think that if he was legally adopted, than those adoptive parents should be listed on his memorial page as "parents" and his biological parents should be in the Bio section.

What are your thoughts?

I'm sorry Chris but I was referring to Martha E. Tope, Addison's wife.

According to cemetery records the grave on her left belongs to someone else (Mrs. Letitia Remy Wyckoff) and the grave on her right is George Tope (1893 - 1894; age 1 year, 3 months) and no record of Addison, other than the obit mentioning the cemetery.

Congratulations - 14 years!

It's always amusing to look at your page with all the Know-It-All-Newbies who won't do corrections, or think that YOU need lessons in genealogy.

O M G, I just read the ABSURD "maiden names for men logic" from Helamoron!!! Hahahahahaha!!!

Hope you had a great summer!

Photo Requests - Dudley Township Cemetery - Satanta, KS
Hi Chris,
My name is Verna McClure. I was hired by the
Dudley Township Cemetery Board to update the Directory List and the Block/Lot information. I just found that you have requested numerous photos for this Cemetery. I printed the list out and will gladly take photos of all of these. I'll do my best to take them this weekend if possible and post them. If not by this weekend, hopefully within the next few weeks.

Do you live in the area? I am in Sublette, KS.

I've been working on this Cemetery update for a few years and had planned on taking pictures of new headstones for this site.

I'll go ahead and claim the photo requests and take care of them for you.

Thank you,
Verna McClure

Bill David Roper #60804773

Bill D. Roper apparently didn't have an obituary.

I've added his Joplin Globe death notice, as well as the info from the Simpson Funeral Home funeral notice in the Globe the next day.

Bill was buried in the Carl Junction Cemetery.

His wife's obituary is not any help. If he had any children, they aren't mentioned.

The SSDI info gives the state of TX where he applied for SS, not where he was born.

I don't have even a birth state to know where to start looking for any family info that I might find on 1940 census records via

I'd be happy to transfer this to you, Chris. The 1900 date I saw on a couple of public sites (Geni was one). Like you, I have been searching for that death date also. But checking later I could not find a definitive DR for her...Last on the 1900 Census as far as I can see. Maybe you will have better luck solving that mystery.
Mary is sister to Eleanor "Ellen" Lotshaw, my late spouse's Great-Great Grandmother.
Mary's child listing there I have constructed out of what I've been able to find over the years.
