My wife and I started researching our family histories about 40 years ago. After years of searching, I found my great great grandfather George W White from research that started with an entry here on Find A Grave. That find inspired me to start entering other family members and adding photos.|
Most of my memorial entries are family and friends. However, I do make entries for folks I come across while taking photos.
I hope some of my entries might help other researchers looking for long lost ancestors. We consider Henry County, Missouri home but now reside in Derby, Kansas. Both our family ancestors were original land patent holders of Rives County before it was renamed Henry County in the late 1830's.
On July 17, 2014 I added my most precious memorial, that of my wife of 48 years, Marilyn Janeen Fosnow White. That 960th memorial will always be my most visited one.

|Anonymous||Garland, Evergreen, McMillian Cemetary|
You and I emailed back and forth a couple of times about a year or so ago regarding the Garland, Evergreen, McMillian Cemetery in Benton County. I believe you said your cousin and his son live on the property where the cemetery is.
I finally found the location of the cemetery. I took your directions and I spoke to a man in the real estate/assessors office at the Benton County Courthouse. He looked the cemetery up and said it was originally called the GARLAND, EVERGREEN, MCMILLIAN CEMETERY. He gave me exact directions. After driving down the road a couple of times, I spotted something gray. It was the headstone of Lemuel R. Oakes (no relationship to me). We did not see any other stones around this one. But it is very grown up and full with bushes and trees. Do you know if the other stones are around the Oakes stone?
We went up the road to where you said your family members live but no one was home. I wrote down the address of your family members and plan to write them asking if this fall we can come back to see the Garland stones. Once fall or winter sets in, maybe the stones will be visible.
Thank you very much for your help last year! Without your help, I wouldn't have had any idea where it was. It turns out my great great grandfather, John F. Garland, buried on the land, was the land owner of that land once upon a time.
I read your message you posted on the Find A Grave site. I am so very sorry to read about the passing of your wife. How very sad for you and your children. I'm sure she is very missed by everyone who loved her.
