Fred Moore
Gomer, as you requested, I connected Fred to his mom #129317702

but #12931752 is a woman. If you find the correct number for his father, please resend. I looked around and couldn't determine which Mr Moore was his father

Slagle Cemetery
McLin --

I am back working on Slagle Cemetery Book matching names. I found three McLin in the 1998 book which are not noted on the Internet site.
Since the 1998 book was documented with stones being present at the Cemetery I have added.

I know that you McLin is your family line so I thought I would pass along the information.

RE: Obit for Edith Utley
Just realized I made a typo in the second obit. Eady's oldest daughter was Elvira Jane, not Eliza Jane.

RE: Obit for Edith Utley
Here they are, complete with grammar & spelling errors. The first one is more "newsy" and the second looks like it was written by a family member. I collected these on a research trip to Polk County about 8 years ago. The Polk County Genealogical Society in Bolivar has lots of old newspapers on microfilm, among other things.

Bolivar Free Press, Thurs. Apr. 17, 1924, p. 1, c. 1:

She Was Likely The Oldest Person In the County.
Mrs. Eady Utley, probably the oldest resident of Polk county, died Tuesday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Jim Degraffenreid, near Slagle. She was 95 years, 9 months and 10 days of age. She was in good health up to her last day. Death was caused by apoplexy and paralysis.
Mrs. Utley was born in Tennessee but came to Missouri long ago. She had been a resident of the Slagle neighborhood for forty years and more. She was married in that vicinity to Jim Utley, her second husband. She has been a widow for a quarter of a century.
Funeral services were conducted Wednesday by the Rev. S. S. Pike. Burial was in Slagle cemetery.

Bolivar Herald, Thurs. Apr. 24, 1924:

Aunt Eady Utley, more commonly known as Grandma Utley, has passed on to her reward.
Grandma was born July 5, 1828, in the state of Tennessee, having reached the age of 95 years, 9 months and 10 days when she departed this life.
When only 19 years of age, she with her parents moved to the state of Missouri where she has lived these many years. She joined the Baptist church at Slagle immediately after the church was organized. Having been a faithful worker in the church until she became to feeble to go. Grandmother always knew where to find comfort as her Bible was ever her companion.
She was the daughter of John Ballinger. She is the last of seven children. The rest having passed on a number of years ago. She was married to John W. Tindle December 18, 1856. To this union three children were born who are still living, Eliza J. Perryman of Palm City, Cali.; Columbus A. Tindle of Grenola, Kan., and another daughter, Mary Degraffenreid with whom she has made her home the past twenty-nine years. After the death of her husband July 26, 1867, she was united in marriage to Jas. Utley in the year, 1882, and he preceded her to the better land in the year, 1895.
Burial was held Wednesday, April 16, in Slagle cemetery.

RE: Richard Weldon Walker
Thanks for the reply. This is all new to me. I appreciate the site and thank you for it and all of the work that goes into it.
Dick was my uncle, my Grandmother's brother. I knew him until I was almost 30. I was also fortunate enough to know their mother, my Great Grandmother, Arra Belle Box. I would have liked to have seen the data corrected. It will make me be extra careful when I put something out there. It's a whole lot easier to get it correct the first time than it is to try to correct it.
Thanks again. I don't know how you all manage this but I know it takes alot of work. I appreciate it!
