I was born in St. Louis, Mo. & grew up in St. Louis County behind the Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery on Wild Horse Creek Road - Chesterfield. Graduated from Lafayette High school in 1966. Married Gene Carroll in 1969. Have been doing genealogy research since 1971. Moved to Washington County,Missouri in 1981 where my maternal ancestry goes back over 200 years. Taught genealogy classes at Mineral Area College 1991- 2001. I am currently employed as a domestic to 12 spoiled-rotten cats, 1 lazy dog & 1 tolerant husband. Have a genealogy web site www.carrollscorner.net - I am now a senior citizen with Fibromyalgia & numerous other health problems so I don't get out & about much anymore but still do what I can when I can.
Actually, I can't add any information to Alexander's memorial, as I'm not the manager, just the photographer. You'll need to contact the manager for his memorial (via the "Edit" tab, located in the upper right-hand section of his memorial, just above his photo. Links to his parents can be made via the "relationship" option; any information to be added to his bio should be submitted via the "Suggest any other correction or addition."
You could also request a transfer so you could add the information yourself. While he's out-of-guidelines and therefore the manager is not required to transfer him to you, Graves is a good person to work with and usually very willing to make transfers to family of all sorts.
Huitts Hi, Amanda Caroline Huitt Lowe was my GGGrandmother; I am still trying to figure this out. Love your website; agree with you that John was the son of James. John B. Huitt had 4 slaves on the 1840 AR census, 2 female. When he died, Amanda was 15 and was given a guardian, John Cole, the very same Probate Judge and County Doctor. She was never a Cope, I just found this out. But wonder why she didn't go with family, she was 15; she could have stayed with Charlotte or Elizabeth, and John's other wife Martha didn't take her. I have more on this subject and would like to talk with you. Sent you an email, not sure you got it. Thanks again for your wonderful website and all you do at F.A.G. It is surely appreciated.
RE: Lilian Palmer Thanks ..at least that provides me with the information as to why you had entered the one "l" in her name. Guess more research is in store. I appreciate your help with my query. Have a good day.
Finding a grave I was wondering, if you could help me find a grave or how do I go about finding one if I went down there? I am looking to visit a friend. I didn't get to go to the funeral and I was wondering if you could help me?
Raymond Heitmann Raymond was my first cousin and still has one sister living. His mother, my father's sister, had already died when the war happened. It was only in the past couple years that I found out he was buried in a cemetery for American soldiers in Belgium. My father had not told me that before and he died in 1984 around the time I first started on my Johansmann history.
I want to thank you so much for telling the story of what happened and for sharing the pictures you have. I had the obituary that was in our local paper but had never seen the battle scenes before. When I saw the body of my cousin next to your family member and read about the brutality of the German army I wept so deeply for what these young men and our families suffered in the loss of these young men. I have letters Raymond wrote to our grandmother and he was always so positive and joyful. He never said anything to make her worry.
Your work is so deeply appreciated.

RE: Thomas Wilson You are welcome. I make mistakes myself more often that I would like to admit. When I enter I do it so fast sometimes then I get interrupted and forget to go back and check to see if it is okay. Have a Merry Christmas!
Thomas Wilson Regarding your photo entered for Thomas Wilson 1851-1932. In checking the tombstone it doesn't look like the dates match the information for this person. Also, the wife listed on the stone is Lucy B 1871-1943. Thomas' wife was Frances 1858-1916. Are you certain your photo is correct for this person?
