Bio and Links
Bio Photo For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

I will no longer respond to transfer or up-date requests that are sent to me on the Message Board. Requests sent this way many times have errors and often slow things down.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Please do not post actual death certificates on my memorials. Instead, send the information shown on the certificate, & I will add it to the memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

RE: Harry Francis Elliott
Thank you for the transfer offer. As long as the family members get linked and the information is correct, I'm content knowing where they are buried.

No matter what you subscribe to, there always seems to be something else that you need to add in order to get more questions answered.

RE: Harry Francis Elliott
I subscribe to Sometimes I get lucky, in having the right papers in the right time period. Have found quite a bit of useful information, but often frustrated by having the right paper, but wrong time period available.

The reason I asked about being related, it just seemed that you were concentrating on the same ones I've been working on.

I'm tracing out the children of my gg-grandfather's first marriage and they sure had a lot of kids!!

A lot of them stayed in the Miller/Morgan county area.

Harry F. against Flossie G. Elliott.

I could not find the issue where the divorce was final.

Meant to ask. Are you related to this family line?

RE: Glenn Gunn

I viewed the bio. section notes for Glen/Glenn Gunn and that should help clarify his name.

I've been in contact with the other contributor and she had not said anything yet about you contacting her, but I now see that the memorial in Hopewell Union has been deleted.

Thank you for your help in correcting the situation.

Rev Wall
I noticed on the edit submission that his birth place was listed as Newport, Clay County. I know Newport Cemetery is in Jack County. Is the town of Newport different? Just let me know and I will complete the edit.

RE: Glenn Gunn
The other contributor obviously took the information off the death certificate and created the memorial as stated in Hopewell Cemetery, which is obviously wrong, since you had Glen's tombstone photo on Glen's memorial in Big Rock Cemetery.

I have sent the same information to that contributor, but from their reply, I think they are only going to add "Glen" as a nickname and that's not right, since their memorial is still in the wrong cemetery.

Please recreate your memorial for Glen and re-post the tombstone photo. I'll send the links for his parents, if you wish.

Thank you,

RE: Glenn Gunn

After reviewing the death certificate a little more and checking some facts, I believe the name listed on the death certificate was in error and it really should have been just Glen Gunn.

The doctor in attendance was Aubrey Jackson Gunn, a cousin of “Dick” Gunn and was also the informant on the certificate. I think Dr. Gunn made an error and listed Halcyon D. Gunn’s name as the deceased?

I wish you had not deleted Glen's memorial as he is definitely buried in Big Rock Cemetery and his family called him Glen.

George C Cassell
Dear Virginia,

Thank you so much for responding to my inquiry regarding George C. Cassell.

I have linked the memorial for George to the memorial of his son David.

By chance do you know where Virginia is buried?

Thank you again for all your help.

May you have a wonderful day in Our Blessed Lord,
