RE: Elmira Ann (Dennis) Fisher #164119901
Thanks for correcting the links between Elmira and Andrew Fisher. I try to get the wives in the correct order but sometimes with multiple marriages for both individuals it still doesn't get them in the correct order!

I don't know if you received my message asking if you could look for more info. about the marriages of Media Elizabeth (Ralls) Cooley #101830835 to her husband's. She was married several times. All I have for some of them are their last names.

My computer died a couple of weeks ago and I had to buy a new one. It wouldn't connect to dial up internet so my daughter traded her computer for my new one. Just got back to doing edits and sending e-mails yesterday. Hope that your little grandbaby is doing well and you are able to get some rest on occasion.

This weather we are having is the pits. Not fit for man nor beast. I just hope we don't get to much ICE out of this storm. Take care,

Would you mind removing the links between your memorial for Elmira Ann (Dennis) Fisher #164119901 and her husband Andrew Fisher #67156900 and then sending me an edit from my memorial for Andrew to relink them. This way Andrew's two wives will appear in the correct order on his memorial. Thanks,

No worries. My info is from a pretty reliable family source. He died in Tacoma, Pierce, WA so I know he would not be buried back in MO so don't bother looking for it elsewhere. If you didn't find any records there of him being buried or interred in Tacoma, then I think the ashes scattering is correct.

I just noticed your Find a Grave info on Joseph H. Bunnell and wondering about the source of info. We had always heard that he had been cremated and his ashes scattered. Can you tell me the source of the info which states where he actually has a final resting place at the cemtery? He is Find a Grave Memorial #167190680. Thanks

I'm doing research on Annie Frost Ringer. Would you happen to have (or are you able to) take a photo of her gravestone?

Verdict of the Coroner's Jury Exonerating the Unknown Striker Who Killed Wardell

Wardell's Funeral - The Lite of Another Coal Operator Threatened - Critical Situation

Macon, Missouri, October 15 - The body of Thomas Wardell, who was killed at Bevier Friday afternoon, was brought to Macon. Dr. E. B. Clements, of Macon, was called to make an examination of the wounds inflicted by the strikers. Dr. Clements made a thorough examination. He found that the bullet did not enter Mr. Wardell's head, over his eye as Dr. Watson, the coroner and prosecuting attorney, had stated. The ball entered Wardell's head just behind his right ear, Dr. Clements say the ball is still lodged in Wardell's brain. This shows, as was stated by some of the eye-witnesses, that Mr. Wardell was shot after he had turned from the crowd of strikers toward his buggy, after he had fired his pistol. Dr. Clements also found, from his examination of Mr. Wardell's body that there were two places on his back which indicated that it has been bruised. It is thought that this was done when the strikers hit Wardell with the stones as he passed from the crowd toward his buggy when he drew out his revolver. Some of the witnesses said Wardell fired his pistol in the air over crowd, while others said he shot directly at the crowd. Some say that it was impossible for him to miss killing some one of the crowd had he shot low enough to strike them. One witness, George Roberts; said that Wardell's revolver shot a hole through his coat sleeve to the jury. Saturday afternoon the coroner's jury returned their verdict as follows: "We, the jury, find that Thomas Wardell cam to his death by a gun or pistol shot wound, fired by the hands of some unknown person, which said person was acting in self-defense." The verdict was signed by Coroner Dale and the six jurors.


Macon, Missouri, October 15 - The funeral services of Thomas Wardell, who was killed in Bevier Friday, were held at St. James Episcopal Church, at ten o'clock yesterday morning. The regular ritualistic burial services of that Church were conducted, with Rev. John R. Harding officiating. The funeral was largely attended by the citizens of Macon. A good number of citizens and coal miners from Bevier were also in attendance. All the other Bevier cal operators and many prominent friends of Mr. Wardell's, from a distance, attended. He was then buried at Oak Cemetery, adjoining Macon.
