Bio and Links
Born October 28, 1954 at Samaritan Hospital in Macon Mo. (Family living in Bevier,MO.)

Father: William Robert (Willie) Cross
Mother: Nellie Margaret Dawson

Including myself, William & Nellie had 7 children (5 boys, 2 girls)

Myself: Lived in Bevier, Mo. since birth.
Education: 1-8 Bevier C-4
High School: Bevier High School 4 yrs.
NMSU (name changed later to Truman
State - 2 yrs.
Occupation: Since 1973 with Burlington Northern R.R. which merged with Santa Fe R.R. to form BNSF Railway

One thing that has really struck me when I started checking the family tree is how so many different individuals down through the years from so many parts of the country and from other countries can meet, marry, have children and end up with one single individual.

Any photos i may post here at Find A Grave, I consider them to be available for anyone to use in what manner they wish (to copy, download, or use on their memorial pages, personal family trees,to share, etc.)

The only thing I ask is that it not be for profit but rather for helping each other in your search for family.

I would be glad to transfer management of any memorials I have posted if anyone has a relationship or a closer relationship than what I have, just ask.

Mary Lou Perrin Bailey
Charles James Perrin
You might be interested in this posting on the Kentucky Archives Genweb site re the first wife of Charles James Perrin:

"The long standing puzzle of who his unknown first wife was, was finally discovered in Breckinridge County Genweb Archives, in the Marriage Journal of the Rev. James Taylor 1827-1867. The journal records the marriage of Charles J. Perrin to Polly Perrin on 11 March 1841."
As you note, the couple had five children before Polly's death. Polly's parents have not yet been determined. We need to find an eligible Polly or Mary Perrin, probably a marriage between cousins.
Have you any clues on who were the parents of Charles James Perrin? I'm looking at John W. Perrin and Elizabeth Austin Snoddy, but have absolutely no proof as yet.
This is a distant twig on my tree.

Jane "Gincy" Summers
Thank you for your kind message regarding Jane Summers. I agree that this is a different Jane. My ancestor is indeed the Jane who married Samuel Summers in Washington Co, MO. Thank you for your help! Karyn

Arthur Creason
Norman, I don't know why the gravestone shows Arthur D. Creason. I just checked this death certificate online and it shows his name as Arthur Lynn Creason and the info for the death certificate was given by his wife. Sometimes there are mistakes on gravestones and they don't get corrected.

RE: John M. Arnett - Mount Tabor Cemetery

sorry, no. I tried to find it but no luck. I wonder if maybe she was buried at Mt. Tabor and no longer had a stone maybe. Her husband and other family is buried there. Maybe her too. Penny

Jane Summers
Hi Norman,

I am curious about a memorial you have created for Jane Gilstrap Summers, #63275839. I believe this to be my great grand aunt, Jane Isgrigg Summers. The dates are the same, and another descendant posted a message calling her "gramma Gency" which is what my great gr aunt was called. However, the husband is different on this memorial (Ninevah, whereas I know her husband was Samuel R. Summers), and her maiden name was Isgrigg, not Gilstrap. Would you have any idea where the information on the memorial came from, especially the maiden name? I really appreciate your time in responding. Thank you,
Karyn Davies

Photo requests
I have submitted a request for Cynthia Ann Six Sides gravesite, I understand it is by Michael Sides, one of which you posted on Find A Grave, which I greatly appreciate. His wife is Cynthia Ann, she is my 2 great grandmother. Are you still taking photos of graves or has someone else been doing that. I have even though perhaps your health isn't really good and I pray I am wrong. Will you let me know please if this can be granted. Do take care and thank you so much for all you have already done for all of us that cannot get to these far away places.
Sincerely, Patty Ryker
Hamilton, MT
