Bio and Links
Bio Photo I work primarily with my relatives memorials. Management of non-relatives' memorials may be transferred upon request. I welcome information and corrections, including cited source documents.
Memorials I post are from personal knowledge, death certificates, newspaper articles, obituaries, interviews of friends and family in some cases with the person himself. Sometimes the stories are funny sometimes they are just not pretty, but it is as factual as I can make it. We are all a product of our own personal family history. Some folks get a bit excited about what their family ancestors did or didn't do. We are not responsible for that nor does it determine that we are good or bad people because of it. It is how we live our life that determines that. What I learned from genealogy is how dam hard it was to survive. In a lot of cases survival was the only occupation.

To provide information or request a transfer, please use the "Suggest A Correction (SAC)" link, located on the Edit Tab (upper right corner) of the page in question. Using this procedure will send a message to my email that includes links to both the memorial page as well as your Contributor ID so I'll be sure to update or transfer the correct page. Don't forget to specify your relationship and to put Find a Grave in the subject line.

Sorry, but I think you have the wrong person. I didn't add any of those memorials and I'm not sure which person you meant to post to.

re: Susan Hutchins # 85155786
No Fred, I know nothing of the Hutchins or the Woodwards. I just transcribed their names into the F.A.G. site from old canvasing records.

Wish I could be of more help.

If you would like Susan's memorial xferred to you, just say so and it's yours.

RE: George Beatty Find A Grave Memorial# 55538960
Hello Fred,
Yes we are related, but apparently only by marriage. George Lee BEATTY who was born 22 Dec 1900 in Duneweg, Jasper County, MO and died 4 Apr 1947 (the year I was born)in Joplin, MO, was the son of my maternal Great-Grand Aunt Edna Mae DeGRAFFENREID BEATTY BRADLEY SHIVELEY and her first husband Lewis E. BEATTY. My Grandmother Mary Letha DeGRAFFENREID BROWN MARSH (daughter of Edna's brother Charner Abner DeGRAFFENREID) and George BEATTY were 1st cousins.
As the family genealogist, I have researched Edna but have not done much on George BEATTY or his descendants. The information I have is as follows: George married Ollie J. STOUT on 20 Oct 1920 in Neosho, Newton Co., MO. They had two children - Louise b. 1924 and Robert Lee b. 26 Jan 1926. (Louise and Robert would have been 2nd cousins to my mother.) George, Ollie, and their 2 children are listed in Galena Twp, Joplin, Jasper County, MO, in the 1930 Census. Ollie was granted a divorce from George in Jan 1938 in Joplin and she was given custody of Louise and Robert. George married again in 1941 to Nelle ____ BAILEY and, as I said earlier, he then died in 1947. George's obituary in the Joplin News Hearld 4 April 1947 mentions wife Nelle, son Robert BEATTY of Joplin and daughter Mrs. W. B. FORGIE of Del Passo Heights, CA, and 3 stepsons with last name BAILEY (obviously Nelle's sons from a previous marriage).
Growing up, I saw Aunt Edna frequently through family "get togethers" and visits to her home. She and my grandmother were very close. I have some photos of Edna from throughout her life. Other than what I spoke of here, I have no information on, or photos of, Ollie, Louise, or Robert. Have you?

RE: James Edward Cockrum Memorial# 47154256
Since I am not related, it is my pleasure to transfer the memorial. This is a large cemetery and I was trying to help by making memorials so others can find their relatives. I'm glad this worked out for you.

Fred - I have transfered the two Wale profiles from Crown Hill Cemetery. I have taken many random photos (as this is a HUGE cemetery) hoping that it would help someone in their research. I'm glad to turn these over to you. Happy Hunting !!
