I have been doing genealogy for 25 years. Born in Avon, Illinois and lived in Will/Grundy counties since 1966. My wife and I spend the winters in Las Vegas, NV and the summers in Illinois. My family lines are Clayton, Slater, Hopple and Chance. Any time between late April and late September I will be glad to do requests.|

|DakotaSun||Friend picture request|
Hello - we were at the Mount Hope Cemetary in Elmo, MO yesterday and took some pictures. We took a couple that we wanted to ask you about before we posted anything. We see that you are looking for Otis Friend. Here is what we found. Have a picture of a stone for Othadley Friend born 1909 and died 1923 and another for Otis Friend born 1885 and died 1917. Since the dates on your request for Otis matched Othadley, we were confused and didn't want to post the wrong picture. Let us know where or if to post. Have a good day.

hi Ralph, sorry, this James did not marry Emily. Thanks
|Elizabeth Hanson||RE: Benjamin Franklin Fox|
Dear Ralph - thanks for the reply - I didn't realize I could go in and edit the information listed there, so I will go in and make the necessary corrections.
|Elizabeth Hanson||Benjamin Franklin Fox|
Dear Ralph - thanks for all that you've done on the genealogy. On the website, Benjamin's parents are listed as Daniel Milton Fox and Nancy Bowman. This is incorrect - when you look up Daniel Milton and Nancy Bowman they never set foot in PA, so unless they birthed poor Benjamin Franklin and sent him north, it's just not possible that these are his parents. I'm still looking into people in PA that could be Benjamin's parents, but there is just no way that it could be Daniel Milton and Nancy as they went from VA to Ohio and then to Kentucky, never veering north to PA. I know a number of people have them listed on Ancestry as the parents, but since they never lived in PA according to the census records and Ben was born and lived in PA until he was in his 50's I'm not certain why they believe that this is the correct relationship. Benjamin was my great grandfather so I've spent a good deal of time looking into this.

I'm sorry but I do not have a photo of William Caulkins' tombstone. However, you can find a photo of it here:

Please post this to his bio. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Texas Co.,MO. This source has M.C. Jones listed as Michael C. Jones. His tombstone just reads M.C. Jones.
Michael C. Jones. Prominent among the successful and enterprising citizens of Texas County, and among those deserving special recognition for their long residence in the county, stands the name of Mr. Jones, who was born in Edmondson County, Ky., June 17, 1827, being the son of Felix W. and Onor (Jones) Jones, natives of Edmond
son County, Ky. Felix W. Jones died in Illinois in 1875, when about seventy years of ago. His wife died in Kentucky. when the subject of
this sketch was a small child. She was a distant relative of her husband, and was a member of the Baptist Church. After her death Felix W. Jones married Miss Catherine Cockerill, who is still living,and is a resident of Bates County, Mo. She was born in Barren County, Ky. Mr. Jones followed farming all his life, and lived in
Edmondson County, Ky., until 1848, when he moved to Franklin County, Ill. He afterward moved to Marion County, Ark., where he resided a few years, and then moved back to Franklin County, Ill. He was a Whig in politics, and afterward a Republican. He was a member of the Baptist Church. Michael C. Jones was the eldest of
five children born to his parents, all now living: Michael C., Olive, wife of Benjamin Anthony (deceased); Chylon, Iradel, and Marcellus,
who is now a resident of Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory. Michael C. Jones was quite young when he left his home and went to Hardin County, Ky. He followed farming in that county for two years, and then lived in Edmondson County, Ky. In 1849 he went to Franklin County, Ill., where he resided until the spring of 1852, and then went
to Texas, remaining there a short time, and then went to Arkansas. Here he found a company going to California, and went with them across the plains, and assisted in driving 800 head of cattle. After reaching that State he followed mining for three years, and then returned by way of Nicaraugua and New Orleans. He remained in
Franklin County, Ill., a short time, and then made another trip to Texas, but soon moved to Williamson County, Ill., where he lived
until in 1871, and then moved to where he now resides. He is the owner of 160 acres of as good land as is to be found in the county.
December 29, 1856, he married Miss Nancy Henry Clayton, a native of Warren County, Ky., born in 1835, and the daughter of Foster Clayton. To Mr. and Mrs. Jones have been born one daughter, Eliza
Hubbard, wife of Frank Payne Hubbard. Mr. Jones is a Democrat in politics, and is a member of the Masonic fraternity. To Mr. Hubbard and wife have been born two children: Grace May and Henry H.

I receive your message and did try to email you but it would not go thru with the address you gave. I copied it so it was just as you wrote
|deloris brumfield||Hopple History|
Tried to email you but it came back. But was looking at a site for Clearmont Missouri cemetery for family and seen that you have Hopples in your family. I have done a lot of work on this line due to my mother in law is a Hopple. maybe we can compare someday . I would truly enjoy.

I was able to visit the cemetery yesterday for the photo request. The office was not able to find a record for him. I also put something out there on the photo request list for the cemetery.
They searched through the records for cremations, interments and mausoleum records.
Sorry--gave it a shot. bhd

|Richard Whiteman||Charles Walter Howard|
Hi Ralph, it appears from my research that Charles Walter Howard and Walter Howard are the same person. Charles Walter Howard was born Feb 23, 1875 in Fulton county. He married Malinda Jane Yocum Nov 27 1898 in Marietta and he died in Macomb Sept 21 1965 at age 90. I will delete my Walter Howard and you can add the info to your Charles Walter Howard, thanks.
