Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you for visiting my page and for all you do here at Find A Grave. I enjoy this website and have met new friends and distant cousins as a result. Thank you to everyone who has provided photos, links, and other information.

The vast majority of my memorials are relatives. Some close, some distant, others in between.

Please be sure to use the Edit tab, then the Suggest a Correction . . . link when requesting updates, transfers, links to family members, etc. This feature is designed to eliminate frustration on all parts due to misspellings, having to search through multiple memorials, etc. Unlike some, I will not ignore/delete your public message regarding the above without first contacting you, but please, please, please, use the proper avenue.

Find a Grave guidelines stating: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren." are, in my view, just that. If you're more closely related than I and have information to add to a memorial, I'll more than likely transfer to you. Be sure to state your exact relation when requesting a transfer (if I request a transfer and forget to state my relation, please kindly let me know and I will do so).

It would be most appreciated if you would not post obituaries or death certificates as photos on any of my memorials. I'll gladly add the verbiage from an obituary minus the names of living relatives if you send me a link to it online or send it to me via the Edit tab. Also, please note that Find A Grave guidelines state you should not post biographical information via a Virtual Flower. I think it may partly be because the creator/manager of the memorial is not notified when a Virtual Flower is left, and may not run across this vital information for days, months, or even years.

David and Anna Kidwell
Anna, I was happy that I had a photo of the headstone and a picture of Anna Forster in my file. I took a good number of Kidwell headstone pictures in Versailles some years ago. Most had already been posted to memorials, though some had not.
You may recall transferring the memorial for William Albert "Ab" Kidwell and Sarah Virginia "Jennie" Ratcliff Kidwell to me a while ago. They are my great grandparents, making David and Anna my great granduncle and great grandaunt. So sad to read of Anna's tragic death.
I see you have created some 70+ Kidwell memorials in the Versailles cemetery. I am assuming you are a relative. I have a good file of Kidwell material if I can be of any help to you.

RE: Allie DeBerry (87199747)
The index entries are mine and reprsent thousands of hours of work over the last 25 years. I have forwarded the texts of the two death notices for her.

RE: Hazel Woosley Burkhead
Hi, Sweetie,

Hazel was married twice, indeed. She first married Stanley Doan and had three children with him, from the oldest to the youngest :

1. Stanley Doan, Jr.
2. Betty Doan
3. Joyce Ann Doan

After Aunt Hazel divorced Stan, she married Carlos Edgar "Ed" Burkhead and had two children with him.

1. Carl Edward Burkhead + Faye Burkhead
1. Kerri Lynn Burkhead
2. Carla Burkhead-Brown

2. Mary Sue Burkhead who was married three times.
+1. Donald Sinston
1. Melissa Ann Sinston
+2. Calvin Sinston ( no relation to Donald)
1. Christina H. Sinston
Now, I don't know much about the children Aunt Hazel had with Stanley, but I grew up with the children she had with Uncle Ed.

I will go back to the memorial and see if I left a pic...I really can not remember.
Honey, I hope this helps you and I just talked to Mary Sue and she is flattered to know you are working on her mother's memorial and she is VERY interested in her mother's family.

Thank you for getting back to me on this, I really appreciate it.

Hugs and Blessings to you and yours,
ReBecca Macklin-Crumpton-Burkhead

RE: Preston Jobes Stallings
Anna C:
Yes, I know what a cenotaph is and have had Find A Grave mark several memorials for me. No, I do not want to move Preston's sites. You will note on his memorial #101075597, that it is listed as a cenotaph in the bio and Find A Grave marked it for me also. Please check the end of where it says Burial. It says cenotaph and if you put your pointer on the ?, it explains the definition.
I also listed in his bio where he was buried.
Thanks for letting me know however.
Best Wishes.

I meant to address my last note to you AnnC, rather than Family Scribe.

Bonnie Stanfield
Martha Mayes Bridges photo
Hi, name my name is Bonnie Stanfield, and I took the pictures of the stones that were left in the Webb Cemetery. Martha is on the same stone as her husband Thomas Bridges, it is just hard to read.

RE: George Albert Beller
Hi - tnx much for your reply !

OK, I've finally got this figured out (dumb me!).

Lucy V. "Beller" and Charles E "Beller" appear "only" in the 1900 US Census. Lucy is listed as born Jun 1890. Charles E. "Beller" is listed as born Mar 1893.

However, the entries for Lucy and Charles E both list Mother and Father as BORN IN MISSOURI (not Iowa).
Therefore they are the children of Marion Alfred MORGAN and Margaret R Comstock !

These kids are in fact Lucy Verna/Velma MORGAN and Charles Edgar MORGAN. Charles Edgar MORGAN died in 1968 in Klamath Falls, Oregon.

Mystery solved - they were just called "Beller" in the 1900 Census, instead of "Morgan".

The 1900 Census lists:
Pearl - born Mar 1889
Lucy V - born Jun 1890

When I thought they were both "Beller" girls, and they could not be born 3 months apart, I was using the Mar 1889 birth date for Pearl. I will change that to 1890, as is on her stone.

Numerous Family Trees also mistakenly list Lucy Beller and Charles E Beller, using the info obviously gleaned from the 1900 US census record.

I'm glad to get this sorted out, whew !

Yours, Richard Weide
