Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photo of 4 gen. my mother, my daughter, me, and my daughters, daughter,my granddaughter, sitting on Nana's lap. My name is Diana (Giddens) Shrum my husband is Dave Shrum, we live in Missouri.My fathers side of my family lived in Pulaski, Phelps, Dent, Shannon, and Texas, Co. Missouri. When I was a young child my dad would take me to the cemetery his family is all buried in he taught me to respect and love the history that lies in them along with the amazing people that once lived, and we call family. Most of the people who are buried in that cemetery are related, to me and each other one way or the other. I dont live near where a lot of my family have been laid to rest. Fine A Grave is the closest thing I have to be able to visit most of my loved one. The surnames I am related, to are, Giddens, Stark, Hensley, Morgan, Dye, Clark, Nickles, Buckner, Gale, Butler, Ireland, Dewitt, and many more. My Husband knew little about his family till I started working on his side of the family. The Shrum, Johnson & many more. If you have anything you would like me to add to a memorial, of a love one, family are just a friend. Please use the edit on the memorial, and I will get the info added as soon as I can. I have found that some people don't think, they need to add, the info, sent to them, for a memorial, that has been suggested. I think the more that is known about a person and the life they lived, the more, we get a understanding of who they were,and how they lived there life here on earth. We help, give them a voice, and keep there memory alive. It is sad that we have so many memorials with just a name and dates. They are all more then that, they were,the ones who paved the path we walk. When History about a family is lost, so will its children be lost. We never really know who we are till we know who and where we came from. No one should ever be forgotten are where they are buried be unknown. If,I am in care of one of your loved one's and they are not of my Family, are,if they are, and you are closer in relation,to them then me, I will be happy to transfer them to you.

Morgan,Willis, Gale Family
Diana, Would you please send any information you have on the Gale, Willis, and Morgan family to my email from now on. I would appreciate it very much. My email address is: How did you find out that James McGlothlin died of the flu? Do you know when he died? Or where he is buried? I can't find anything on James McGlothlin. I can't find much on Grandpa Lawrence H. Gale either. I think I told you that Lawrence Gale and Eva McGlothlin are my Daddy Ovie Gale parents. And Stella and Oscar Willis is my Mom Catherine's parents. If you like to text me sometime if you email me I will give you my cell phone number. I don't know your Aunt but if she would mind you giving me her number I would love to talk to her sometime. Thank you again for all your help. It is much appreciated. Have a good week. Take care. Sincerely, Dianne P.S. Are you on Facebook. If you are you can look me up. It's Dianne O'Neal in Kansas City, Missouri.

RE: Gale, Willis, Stark
Diana, thank you for answering me. I'm sorry I don't know your Aunt Mary Gale. How is her aunt related to Lawrence Henry Gale? May I ask where you live? I am looking for information on Lawrence Henry Gale and James McGlothlin. I'm not coming up with much on either of them. My Grandpa on my Mom's was Oscar Willis. How are you connected to the Willis's? Have a blessed Sunday. Take care. Sincerely, Dianne

RE: Sallie Tomlinson
Diana, I am wondering if we are dealing with two different Sallies. You show she married Ransom in 1890 and he died in 1910. But you show that she married John Kirk Tomlinson in 1903. Do you know if she divorced Ransom or is there a Sallie Butler and a Sallie Giddens? I am a little confused, but I have made the changes you requested.

RE: Sallie Tomlinson
Diana, I got the Butler as the maiden name from the headstone. I do not know if that was from another marriage or where it came from. Any information you could provide to clear it up would be appreciated.

Daniel P. Stark - Find A Grave Memorial# 104300703
You have the birth date of Daniel Stark listed as 1756. Since his first son was born in 1768, I truly believe that is incorrect. I (and most Stark family researchers) have his birth year as about 1743. Could you change the date of birth on his memorial? (Or if you have proof of the 1756 birth, please let me know!) Many thanks for your consideration of this matter and for your many contributions to Find A Grave.
