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.

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

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.

RE: Alice (Carver) Kennedy/Hampton
Alice is no kin I looked for an obit on her she died at her brother-in-laws house Westley Choate
kids were Clarence Kennedy, Andrew, age 12 George age 6 I didn't get the obit got to many already just wrote me a note and that is all it said the best I can remember. there is about four Hampton's buried in Madison County and I don't think any of them are connected to your Hamptons the 1910 census in St. Francois County has a John H.

I have a lot of Kennedy's in my database and I do have a James who married a Alice Carver here in 1894 his father and mother I have as buried in Poplar Bluff Mo. but don't have anything on James A. Kennedy born in b Dec 1875 don't know when he died in the 1910 census Alice has they were married abt 1900 Ted
