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.

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer the memorial for the above named person to me? His memorial number is 67807677. He is my great uncle on my mother's side.

My number is 47325206. Thank you so much!

Mary Ronchetto, child of Giacomo & Veronica, 1893-1894 at College Mound Cemetery, Mo. Carving looks like Maty, but Mary is correct.

One more thought- perhaps "Bevier Cemetery" is any of the four as they are all in the same area. It is easy to step into one from another !

Consider your entry for James L PATRICK, Find A Grave 110353099. His State of Missouri Archives Death Certificate, File No. illegible, (James Patrick) lists Oakwood, Bevier, West Side. Macon Co MO Cemetery Records, vol. 1-11 (I think may be Phyllis Mears ?) via Ancestry lists St Charles Cemetery, Bevier.

John A EVANS, Find A Grave 134970584. His State of Missouri Archives Death Certificate, File No. 26978, (John Evans) lists only Bevier. The Cemetery Records of Macon Co, MO, Bevier and Callao, vol III (again ? Phyllis Mears)via Ancestry also lists St Charles.

Interestingly, I also found entries for "Ona" Evans (1860-1919) and "Etta" Evans (1859-1936) in the Macon County Cemetery Records, vol 1-11 via Ancestry. Perhaps a transcription error ?

Hi Norman,

I found a marriage (with misspellings) 16 April 1876 - Eavins, (Evans) John A. & Dentzler, (Denzler) Ocia A.; Macon Co, MO.

"Rettie" & Ocia were cousins. Ocia was the daughter of Sarah JOHNSON Denzler Brown, Find A Grave 13506668.

MO death cert: Ocie Ann Evans, died 15 Sept 1919.

I think "Bevier Cemetery" is possibly Richards Dale, land adjoining West Oakwood donated by John Richards as a memorial for his family. East Oakwood was the original according to "Bevier's Black Diamond Jubilee" a collection of Bevier High School student's historic reviews, published 1958.

Hope this may help your search !!

Sorry I don't know if this is that Marlin. I have not had a chance to do any research. More then likely it probably is. Penny

Thanks, Norman, for the correction. I have inserted the correct maiden name.

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
