I am a late entrant into the world of genealogy, only catching the bug about four years ago. However it has become a passion and I spend a good portion of every day working on tracing my ancestry and documenting it for myself, immediate family and future generations.
I love what the Find a Grave community is providing for the many who are hunting down clues to their family's histories. What a fantastic group of volunteers and researchers that have created this site. I am hoping in some way that I too can add something of value and maybe remove a brick or two for someone else here on FAG.
RE: Collins and Hamilton Judy, it doesn't look like I ever sent you a reply. I am so sorry. At the time I was still transcribing headstones and posting pictures, so I thought I might run into Mary Collins. However, I never did see a headstone for her. Next time we are back in the area I will try to go to the cemetery and specifically look for her. Thanks Jean
Please see the caption on the photo page of Mary's memorial. She is buried in what they call the public sections and most do not have a marker. Myself and 2 other Find A Gravers walked the section and did not find a marker for her.
Cora Adeline McElfresh King Hi Judy, My great grandmother was Cora King. I am trying to find her parents. Unfortunately the loss of the 1890 census is blocking my path. I have only been able to find census records once she was married. I have search the Missouri birth records for 1885 but cannot find a Cora McElfresh, even with different spellings of the last name. The marriage certificate seems like the spelling might be different than the one above. Do you have any information you could share with me? Any information you could give to me would be greatly appreciated.
Mamie Adkisson #71590450 this lady is a puzzle. i checked the census 1900 to 1930 and in 1910 and 1920 she is living with her dad two brothers and a sister and she is listed as a Booking agent (1930) ( wonder if that is with the RR) so we know she was alive then but by 4-2-1930 she is not listed. her dad is living with son albert v and his wife and kids and william alvin. also noticed on the DC for the Mayme Adkisson that she was only in the State Hospital for 11 days and died from ehaustion following manic depression insandy (doctor needed to learn how to spell) if this is her she would have been in her early 40's and i am wondering if she was not going through the change which can bring all kinds of mental as well as physical changes. am i right in thinking that you are kin to the Adkisson family.
