Bio and Links
An ameteur genealogist (inheriting all deceased family members' work), an archivist and a family historian, I am descended from Daniel Boone, Thomas Farmer, Isaiah Washburn, SR, Elisha Moore of KY and MO, Edmund Rutter, SR of KY and MO, Henry Walz of Germany and Charles Chaussee originally of Montreal, Canada.

My sons are descended from James Wickens of England, James Corke of England, William Elder Summerville and those are the lines I am pursuing at Find A Grave.

My other entries are from various pages photocopied at libraries as I travel north and south hunting obituaries, burials and other info on both direct and collateral lines in the family.

Tina Vinson
Gosnell Heritage
My Granny was Mary Gosnell her middle name I believe may have been Elizabeth. She is buried in Macedonia Cemetary. I was told she was buried with her Gosnell family. I am unsure if what other Cemetary's they are buried at, but There has to be more. Macedonia can't be the only one. I remember a Great Uncle Everett ( That is one of Mary's siblings) who lived in Cherokee NC I believe. Sorry to say I don't know much about my family heritage. My father Larry Morris Vinson Sr of Toccoa Ga passed away October 21st last year unexpected, after finding out he had a rare cancer Aug 11, 2014. So I can not obtain any information from him. My Grand father had passed before I was ever born but his name is Charlie Vinson buried at Level Grove Cemetary in Cornelia Ga. If you can help me link my family I would greatly appreciate it!! My Surname is Tina Louise Vinson.

Thank you,
Tina Ivester

Photo of Baby Radigan's memorial

Thank you SO MUCH for getting the photo of the memorial for Robert Radigan. I am working hard to document my mother's extended family, and that was the only missing photo for my cousin's family. It is very special for us that you were able to complete that portion of the family tree. Thank you!!

Bluff View Cemetery and Jesse Edward Davis

Thank you for your work at this cemetery.

If you return for some reason, can you see if Bud Davis, born 1927, as a son of Jesse Edward Davis has been buried with his parents?

The Father Jesse Edward was buried there in 1972
The son Jimmie Dean was buried there in 1993 from a CA death.

Your photos were apparently in 2013

I am trying to determine if Bud born in 1927 is still alive or not

These are my great grandparents.
John W. Moore #53055333, He is the brother of Amos David Moore.

Amos and John's parents were Amos Wilkinson Moore and Louisa (DeMoss) Moore. I was wondering if you have ran across them in your research?

Amos Wilkinson Moore parents were Ebenezer Moore and Matilda (Scott) Moore. They are buried in the Wright Cemetery in Shelby Co MO.

Thank you for your time and effort.

Thank you for updates
Thank you so much for making the updates that I have sent you recently. It is greatly appreciated. It gets frustrating when people never respond. It is apparent that you truly care about helping people with their genealogy research.
Best Regards

RE: William Cook
Thank you for posting the obituary. It helped to fill in some gaps. The obit has 22 May as DOB instead of 21 May. I don't know if you had other information to post it as the 21st, so I didn't change it.

RE: Prudence Summerville Cookinham
You're welcome. Thank you for taking photos of the headstones at Silver Lake Cemetery. I've been using them in my family tree on I haven't been to Silver Lake Cemetery in over 40 years, and I was surprised to see how the markers have fallen into disrepair. Both my grandmother Prudence Cookinham and great-grandmother Elizabeth Summerville were on the cemetery committee back in the day. One of their objectives was to keep the cemetery neat and in good repair. It seems no one is doing that any more. Also, I've added some photos I have of Charles Henry, Prudence, and the four girls -- Helen, Harriet, Leah and Gertrude -- to their respective memorials.

Prudence Summerville Cookinham
Carolyn, your information for location of death for Prudence Summerville Cookinham is incorrect. At the time of her death, she was residing at Riverside Manor Nursing Home in Ames, Iowa. Prudence is my grandmother and she did live with her step-daughter Leah Cookinham Forster (my mother) and family in Gurnee, Illinois from 1951 to 1967. In the fall of 1967, she went to live in Ames, Iowa with her daughter, Gertrude Cookinham Smith. It was determined that Prudence needed more specialized care and that's when she became a resident of Riverside Manor (early 1968 as I remember). She was there about 2 years before her death on 03 Dec 1969; we buried her at Silver Lake Cemetery in Ayrshire, Iowa on 06 Dec 1969 (in one of the worst blizzards I've ever seen). Thanks in advance for making this change on Nanny's memorial. She helped raise me from a baby to a teenager, and I miss her every day.
