RE: Willis Kissee
Thanks for your help. I do a lot of work with the White River Valley Historical Society here near Branson and they've done a good deal with the cemeteries here as well. My area of interest and focus of research is our former slaves and their descendants. Though the Kissee family were never slave owners, we have also tracked many of our local Union militia members and their Confederate neighbors into the decades after the war. Willis and his brother, Alexander, were the former; their cousin Peter Kissee was the latter. If you ever locate a photo of Willis, I'd appreciate a copy. Thanks again. Brad

Willis Kissee
Loline: You probably saw the newspaper article on his shooting death I uploaded on line. His family moved to the Taney County area from Indiana; the parents are buried in the next county over. He married here, fought in the Civil War here, owned a mill then left for Colorado after 1870. I've been trying to track down a photograph of him but so far am unsuccessful. Part of that family descended a brother still live here. Brad Melton, Taney County, Missouri.

RE: John Adams
There was a collaborator on a book (pamphlet) that was created and somehow the other person had a picture of the stone... where and how I do not know.

Yea, it was fun working on this today. Trying to all all the boys of Army and Alice Adams but when you do not have a specific cemetery - stuck big time

Interesting article. I have added the info to Thomas's memorial. I do appreciate you sending along this kind of info as you go thru the newspapers.

RE: Mary Beeks Gray---Ray?
Yes, you were right it is Ray not Gray. I stopped at the cemetery and looked at it closer and found my mistake. Thanks for your help.

RE: Minnie E. Davis
Loline, Thanks for the info. I was unable to find Caro, Iowa in the options, so typed it in the Bio. Also, made the correction of the birth year. Rita
