Bio Photo About Me
As a retired teacher, I've found a bit of time to get back into genealogy. I think I've bcome addicted to FindaGrave. What a fabulous site! I enjoy setting up and maintaining memorials for my loved ones, as well as others. I also enjoy being a volunteer and taking pictures of headstones to fulfill requests!

My photo shows what I love most -- visiting those little old cemeteries.

My People
My family trees include: Hill, Sells, Winningham, Wright, Ledbetter, McDonald, Cook, Hymers, Morton, Douglas, Murphy, Clayton, Flowers, Galloway, Schatz, Harris, Wallis, Baker, Kupilik.

Making Requests
Please remember to use the EDIT button on memorial pages to offer suggestions, corrections, and even questions regarding specific memorials. Also please remember that no one is perfect -- we all make mistakes.

My Photos
Please feel free to use any headstone photos that I take and upload to FindaGrave memorials for your personal non-commercial use.

A NOTE
One of the messages left below is threatening, and I will not remove it until I know that a FAG editor has had opportunity to read it. Two other messages are very aggressive. Bullying is not acceptable. I will not remove any of my memorials until I complete my own research to determine whether removal is warranted, and not because I am ordered to do so by another contributor.

RE: Richard Brown
Morning Sharyl,
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, but I had to go to work. This is what I can tell you according to the death certificate (which you can see on the Missouri Secretary of State) if your not familiar with it, pretty cool website. According to the informant which was Ethel Brown, Rich birth date was Sept 28 1876 and he died May 18 1921 and yes there was a son by the name of Onas Otis Brown, died Mar 9 1962. I also donate my time on a cemetery committee and we come across this. I usually go to the library and look for an obituary to see if it says. I've come to the conclusion that the informant was either wrong when the death cert. was filled out or the headstone information was wrong since we don't know when the stone was purchased which could have been after Ethel death. If we find a difference we'll see if we can get the creator on Find A Grave to mention something about the date or add the obituary. A person usually goes off the death cert. and assume the stone is wrong. Larry

RE: Richard Brown
It appears that they transposed the two last numbers of the birth date on the headstone and then got the death date wrong too. It happens often.

Richard Brown
per your message about this memorial...these are two different Richard Browns. If you'll notice, the parents are different. That is a common name and their birth and deaths are close so it's easily confusing.

RE: Olive Wilson
I don't believe so. The Wilson's I am researching are from Indiana. I was researching Wilson's at Mt. Vernon, Mo. and found her obit at the library. Call it a gift ;-)

RE: Brashers Cemetery, Lawrence Co MO
No, Lucy is not mine. I cannot find her on my tree so didn't even know she existed. Looks like I need to work this cemetery and put them into my tree. Might clear some things up!! I see an Elizabeth Bassham (maiden name). I know I have some Basham's in my file. Thanks for pointing out the cemetery. I doubt I would have ever found it because of the spelling. Even reading your note I made several errors trying to find the cemetery!! But when I finally got to the cemetery, I thought the picture of the sign on the road looks familiar. I do see there are some Brashears in the cemetery, so I may have visited their memorials before. At one time, I looked several different spelling up just by last name and put into my tree all those that I found. I guess I missed this spelling. Thanks for your question, but you can keep the memorial as far as I am concerned.
