re: Thomas Kearbey and Whalens
Dear D Yancey,
I have no problem transferring Thomas Kearbey to you. I would ask that you transfer to me the Whalens in Kearbey Chapel Cemetery as my Mother was a Whalen as are my Grandparents and Great Grandparents. The Huskeys and Livingstons are also related to me.
I know that you and I have a great affection for the same families. If I can assist you in any way please feel free to contact me.

Elizabeth Frances Head
Memorial 88192384

I accidentally sent you some information to add to your memorial record of this individual. It was done by mistake, please excuse my error and reject it when it is presented to you.
I found a cemetery record with Many of the Head family and some Winters. This individual that I listed was incorrect.

Thank you and again I am sorry for the mistake.

Nash DNA
Hello, I have communicated with you in the past about my Nash ancestors. I am the great granddaughter of Granville Nash. If I remember correctly there was some discussion about DNA tests. My daughter took a test and my husband and I will both be taking our own tests soon. It will be interesting to see if you come up on my list as a match, which you should.

Request declined
I see you declined the change of Carol Ann Gillespie's father from the one created by Walters. I am his sister and I have asked the other contributor to delete his memorial. As I am the immediate family and want under my listings.

I would like a transfer of this memorial. Carol is my niece. Daughter of my brother Robert C. Gillespie. I have already submitted a change of link to his memorial that I had created not the one submitted by a non family member.

Rosetta Fulbright Looney obit
I forgot to mention in my other note one additional thing. The bio I wrote for Rosetta Looney's memorial was written by me--it was not her obituary.

I never put obits that are newer than 1922 because that is a copyright infringement. (It's perfectly ok to re-write things in your own words, which is what I do.)

I thought you might like to see an copy of the actual obituary that was published in the Alton Evening Telegraph on 24 May 1968 (page A-9). The following is an EXACT copy--spelling, punctuation, names, dates, words, everything:



JERSEYVILLE--Mrs. Rose Ettie Looney, 86, of 209 1/2 Delmar St., Jerseyville, died at St. Joseph's Hospital in Alton at 5:20 a.m. today.

Mrs. Looney was the widow of the late Harley Looney. She was born Jan. 26, 1882, in Bollinger County, Mo.

Survivors are two sons, Leo of Grafton and Cleo of Alton; three daughters, Mrs. Avis Haney of Elsah, Mrs. Opal Davis of Denver, Colo., and Mrs. Modean Wisdom of Jerseyville; 11 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; two brothers, Jasper Gilleland and Alec Gilleland of Gypsy, Mo.; and two sisters, Mrs. Minnie Jackson of Gypsy, Mo. and Miss Lora Looney of Arkansas.

One son, Cletus, preceded her in death.

Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Jacoby Brothers Funeral Home.

Burial will be in the White Hall Cemetery. Friends may call after 7 p.m. Saturday.


The obit left me wondering how she had a sister named Miss Lora Looney. One would think an unmarried sister would have had the surname Fulbright or Gilliland. Could have been an error in the obit, I suppose.

Hope seeing an actual transcript of the obit helps you in your search. Good luck!
