I have been intrigued with family history since I was a young child. My mother came from a large family of ten children. There were dozens of aunts, uncles, cousins, 2nd cousins, great-aunts, great-uncles, etc. I was especially curious when we went to family cemeteries on "Decoration Day" each year. Mother would decorate dozens of family graves and she would tell me how I was related to each one of the deceased. She would describe them or share family stories about them. At other times she would show me pictures of them. Consequently, those graves became much more than a plot of dirt and a headstone to me. Mother and dad died at a fairly young age and now I cherish those memories at the cemetery on "Decoration Day". Naturally, Find-A-Grave is a resource that is very near and dear to my heart.
Dewey Cantrell, Webster County Missouri Hi, I saw that you posted a picture of Dewey Cantrell. I am really interested in this family. Dewey would have been my grandfather's cousin. They were both born in 1900 I think. My grandpa's name was Bill Cantrell (son of joe Cantrell and Rosie Bagby). I love looking at old pictures and I wondered if you had other pictures? I would love to learn more about this family.
RE: Thank you My husband really deserves the credit. LOL He's my helper in finding stones on my graving expeditions. He also found another Bough next to Roscoe. Her name is Myrtle which I also photographed and uploaded to her memorial. I'm glad we were able to locate Roscoe's for you and, of course, Myrtle as a bonus.
