Nellie May Estes
Hi Pam,

Nellie is in the Shelbina Cemetery and you have her married to UNK McDowell. Actually his first name was Arthur 1899-1980, buried in Grandview in Hannibal. Just in case you are interested. Thanks for all you do.

Bless your heart
I am so sorry I made the mistake on the mother's name and used a grandma's name instead. A lot of people would want to punch a wall and even though you are so nice, I was a bit worried. Usually I don't make these mistakes and you are so wonderful for your helpfulness. What is it all for if I make mistakes and nobody wants to correct them?

Thanks Again!!

Anton Zahn
I just added a photo for Anton Zahn's grave and wanted to let you know that the grave was actually in Saint Philips Cemetery across the street from the Napoleon Cemetery so you may want to edit your memorial page Find A Grave Memorial# 124758674

RE: Vandela Benefield Vawdellar
Not a problem at all! I don't know why it didn't automatically rotate the full-sized photo... it normally does.

I know the minister at Christian Chapel really well. I'm the minister just down the road at the Millport church of Christ. We got lucky! Just as soon as I snapped these photos, it started a downpour!

If there are any other photos you need, let me know!

P.S. I tried to remove some of the discoloration around the date just in case it was dirt or mud, but it wasn't budging, so I imagine it's oxidation of some kind. It almost looks like it's just waterlogged... but the whole gravestone doesn't have the discoloration.

Thank you and inquiry
20 years ago, my mother's aunt-by-marriage had enough clarity from her Alzheimer's to write down what she knew of her late husband's family for me... she was ecstatic that anyone was interested, as she had feared the knowledge would die with her. She gave me the names of my third great grandparents - no one living other than her knew these ancestor's names, out of apathy - but could not remember more than the name of the cemetery they were buried in. THANK YOU, the long search has finally come to fruition. Henry Hobart Bush and his wife Martha have their memorials on this site, and it seems that it is thanks to you. IF I could kiss you I would!
Martha is entered as having the maiden or former name of Alexander (the same info I was given) but that info is not on her grave marker nor is there an obituary or other personal information on her memorial page. I wondered, knowing it's a long shot, if you had entered that maiden name and if you remembered where that information came from, so that I can work on documentation and the search for her parents. Again, I know it's a long shot, and any further help you can give is deeply appreciated!

Wright-Reed Family
And Thank you for all your work... and your dogged determination to get the best, and most information out for those who come to look for it later. I now have 5 books and am working on 2 more. The problem has grown to the point where I need to stop and split my books up into several volumes. Elvira gave Ezekiel T. Reed, 14 of his 19 children, as his 2nd wife. He stone says, "Elvira Reed - Mother". Such an understatement. I had pushed this back to do my Norwegian roots first, what with 19 children. But the Norwegians have been just as bad. If I do a print out of my central couple, just a descendant tree runs over 1,100 pages. So I just break this one up. I send 2 copies of each to the Library of Congress. Check out my other listings by looking for my name Mosher, Ronald Dean, 1959- at their website It's great for many other things. Thanks again.

Hi, the cemetery owners are not helpful at all. They do not understand Find a grave or the need for historic information.

Personally they aggravate me. They have no concept of personal service, They do not even have an IQ above a rodent. At least a rodent could find its way around a maze.

The care at this cemetery is very minimal.
