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.

Vestal photo
Mr. Cross- my apologies, I was visiting antioch cemetery in Macon Co. Today and saw your photo request for Toleman Vestal and attached it here, but I believe it was the wrong Toleman. I have asked for it to be deleted. I looked for your other photo requests but was not successful. Many of the stones are illegible or missing.

The transfers of Martha Deskin & Alonzo Peyton are greatly appreciated.
I am related to Martha, I'm guessing 3rd cousin one removed.
Thanks again

RE: William and Retta Sloan
Nope, that is somewhat correct up until Theophilus Sloan (they misspelled his name as Theopolis but it was in fact Theophilus. I'd be happy to send you the marriage record).

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 ?
