My mom and I have been able to find some pictures of head stones on this site that we most likely would never have seen. It's helped us in my search of our family history. "Thank you".|
If we've made any mistakes or you have any suggestions for any of the ones that we've placed in here, please let us know.
If you'd like us to transfer a site over to you, just ask. As long as it's not someone that is a part of our family I will be glad to transfer.

I appreciate it ! If you'd like to enter it, I would not be offended at all. If you don't, I think I would try what you suggested. It doesn't matter to me at all. I live in Texas, and have only been to Elsberry 3 x in my entire life. I have family in Elberry cem, Watts cem (which is abandoned) and the Kemper cem. (also abandoned). I don't anticipate going back up there any time in the near future. Create one if you like, and link it up to her spouse. just let me know. I'll have to get back into ancestry to even see where I was on that.

Looking at my notes: I was looking for a woman named Elizabeth Ferry Morris 1842-1918. She was the wife of James Morris 1829-1890 (Find A Grave # 83109802). Their children are Charles R 1871-1923, Harry L. 1876-1941, Sarah Ann Morris 1878-1937. I was probably trying to link her up with her husband. He was married before to Clarinda # 42767467. I've slept since then, but seems like I found Clarinda but not Elizabeth Ferry. I was working on Ferrys, a family I am related to thru Elliots and Kempers, and they all lived in Elsberry, MO.

Could the Elizabeth Morris you have be Elizabeth Ferry Morris, 2nd wife of James Morris ? Most of her family is buried in Lincoln Co. Probably some in that cemetery. Eliza Ferry is the daughter of Charles Ferry 1808 and Arzilla Watts Ferry 1816-1909. She was married to James Morris. His 1st wife was Clarinda Wommack

Thank you for responding.

Thank you for adding my gg grandfather to the find a grave. I already have this photo from my visit to Oakwood.
While there I noticed a stone near it that said ? Monroe. Is there any chance when you go back to the cemetery if you can see if I really did see a large stone or it was my imagination. At the time I did not know the name Monroe fell into the family tree and being in Ohio it is a little hard to jump in the car for confirmation.
Anyways back to Lafe as my grandmother called her grandpa. Martha Wilhite is his granddaughter and when the stone was put in she was still living. She is no longer and the family had plans to meet there at a later date but I don't know if that transpired. I have been vigoriously researching Lafe and found 2 wives & 17 children. I will be happy to answer any questions I can on his family. I do hope some will contact me @ email@example.com.
I would like to have you transfer Molly Mabry 39218937 to me 48263924. Molly is my 5th GGM. If you don't want to transfer I can give you info to edit her memorial. Thanks

Thanks so much for taking the photo of Mary's headstone. It's amazing that, after 125 years, the engraving is still very readable, and your photos certainly did justice.
