"I did not find a marriage for John and Clara on Laclede county marriages, but the death certificate for Jesse Dampier, born 1906, says his father was Bert Dampier and mother was Clara Stevens."
I've seen the DC now. You're absolutely right. Also, they would have had to divorce (timeline).

"John Bert married Nancy Rector Dec.1, 1898, she might be Homer's mother"
Again, you're absolutely right. I found Nancy (Rector) Dampier [27518198] She IS Homer's mother.

This is what I was basing the two ONLY marriages on:
1910> Missouri> Laclede
h> John B Dampier, 32y b.IN, M2/2, occ: Laborer/Trucking
w> Pearl E, 19y b.MO, M1/2, mother of 1/1 living
s> Homer C, 9y b.MO
s> Troy, 11mos b.MO
residence: Eldridge township

Notice where it says John B was married for the second time, for two years. Someone got it wrong.

Thanks for ALL your help.

RE: Mary Thoms
Unfortunately the metal marker is name visible on it. I checked when I was there. Cemetery records show she is buried on that lot along with the Thompsons.

Mary Thoms
Hello, I found this memorial page and wanted you to know that the records say she was buried in Section 10, Lot 7. I have sent you an edit to reflect this. Please add it. I will also make it a point to check and see if there is a tombstone. If so I will photograph it and post it. Thank you very much!

RE: Gladys Jones
I am truly sorry for the mistake. I had to Gladys Jones (Married names) and got confused when I had entered the memorial that day. You are correct about the maiden name. I have changed it.

Once again sorry for the wrong info. Thanks for telling me.

RE: Holcombe
Do you mean you want John Young Holcombe (b. 1859, d. 1940) to not be linked to Phillip Holcombe as his father? I'm a little confused.

RE: Photo
Sorry. I have added so many pictures in the last few days that I am not sure which one you are talking about. Please let me know and I will see what I can do.

RE: Elting
I found the obit clipping for Robert Elting at the McDonough Co Genealogical Society in Macomb, IL. I just have the digital scan that I uploaded, not the original paper. Here is a link to the death record on, though, which gives the full birthdate as 02 Aug 1913 Macomb,McDonough,IL and death as 25 Feb 1930 Macomb,McDonough,IL:
Although it lists his mother as Lora "Cole", she was actually Lora Cale (Findagrave # 23491756), sister of my grandfather, and his father was Harry Lincoln Elting, Findagrave # 23491747. I just submitted an edit to Robert's page to add those family links, I guess you should see the approval request on the Edit tab.

I have learned more recently that it's actually frowned upon to upload obits as photos, so if you'd like me to remove it and type the info into the bio instead, please let me know.

A couple more things on familysearch: here is a 1920 census record:
And if you have a login on familysearch, you should be able to see these photos, which include Lora, Robert, his sister Margaret Elting Graham Crone, and other Cale relatives:§ion=memories

I believe F Simmons, Findagrave contributor #46956282, is also researching the Eltings of Macomb, I got some e-mail from him a while back, you may want to contact him for more info on the Elting side of the family.

Hope that helps.
