Bio and Links
Bio Photo I accidentally came upon the Find A Grave website! I was amazed at how much new direction it has provided me with on my genealogy search. I started my genealogy research about 30 years ago just as a hobby, but it now has become more of a 2nd occupation for me. I love being able to help people with their research and at the same time it helps me with mine. I have been adding my family members info to FindAGrave in the hope that their story will endure. I try to ensure that the memorials I add are correct! That is one of my pet peeves! I want my memorials to be more than merely a beginning date and an end date in someone's life! I want to paint a broader picture of that person. Since this is a living memorial, I want it to be just that! To show that the person did live, have a family, etc. So, I try to only add a memorial once all the facts have been verified as accurate and when I have a short bio of the person. Sometimes, there is nothing more than a birth date and death date and that is all. If I make a mistake on a memorial, please contact me so that I can edit it and make it correct! I appreciate any and all help in this journey of mine. The people I enter on FindAGrave ARE my family members! I take good care of them, but if anyone has more info on my memorials, I welcome the addition of information. Just send a message on the SAC (Suggest A Correction) for their memorial.

The info I sent you was from http://s1.sos.mo.gov/records/archives/archivesdb/soldiers/Detail.aspx?id=S54397&conflict=Civil War

Also look up Ste. Genevieve Missouri Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Camp # 326

We are trying to locate and get stories on all the Civil War Vets from the Ste. Genevieve MO area.

RE: Louis J. LaCroix at Saint Edward's Cemetery
Pat, I haven't been out to St. Edward's Cemetery for several years due to my health. It is a small, quaint cemetery that is kept nicely mowed. I believe I had obtained a map of this cemetery at one time. If I can find it, I will look for the grave you have asked about. A lot of markers are missing there, so just because I can't find it doesn't mean the person is not buried there. I'll see what I can do.l

Dear Pat,
The edits you requested are done. I also linked her to Ira Arney. If you are related and would like management of her page, just let me know, I'd be glad to transfer. [I tried to send you an email direct, but it bounced back]. You can reach me directly at kabney@hughes.net
Thanks
Karen

Aaron & Nancy Hammers/Hamor
Pat, take a look at the memorial and see what you think. I found Aaron and his wife Nancy listed in the 1880 Census and the Civil War pension index with the surname of Hammers. I made a note below the Civil service info.

Again thanks!

RE: Katurah Hannah (Gentry) Besse
You are welcome to use the photo. Evergreen Cemetery is in sad shape, a lot of broken headstones and holes. You have to be careful walking. I wonder if there could be an old coal mine beneath it.

Dear Pat,
If you are related to the McDaniel's and would like me to transfer George's page (and any other McDaniel's) to you, just let me know. I sent you an email but since I haven't heard back I assumed it went to spam and you didn't get it. I'm always more than happy to transfer pages to family members. Sincerely, Karen

PS
So glad that someone else also wants Find A Grave site to have more that DOB & DOD, as that is very cold and impersonal, they were someones family and friends.

RE: Tarters in Hosey Hill
Not a problem, not related, my husband was just long time friends with members of the Tarter family, as he grew up in that area.

RE: Ervin's of Pleasant Hill Cemetery
Hello...glad I was able to help you out! Sorry I wasn't looking for Elijah & Rose when I was walking through Pleasant Hill. I only had a couple of hours before work and was only looking for photo requests. They could be buried there, but as I wasn't looking for them I didn't see them.
