|Bio and Links|
Since I retired, I've found a bit of time to get back into genealogy. I think I've become 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 husband has even joined in the fun!!
My photo shows what I love most -- visiting those little old almost forgotten cemeteries.
My family trees include: Sells, Winningham, Hill, Wright, Ledbetter, McDonald, Cook, Hymers, Morton, Douglas, Murphy, Clayton, Flowers, Galloway
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.
Regarding Burials Unknown
According to Find a Grave guidelines (FAQs), creating a memorial as a Burial Unknown is to be used only for new burials, with the memorial to be edited/updated with the final disposition within 30 days.
Listing a memorial as Body Lost or Destroyed just because the burial place is not known is not accurate, just as Non-Cemetery Burial is also not accurate if it's a case of simply not knowing where the deceased is buried.
Please do not request that I link to a Burial Unknown.
Please feel free to use (for your personal non-commercial use) any headstone photos that I take and upload to FindaGrave memorials.

I am surprised by your email. Iould think you would have better things to do than worry about whether or not this is a "marker". So, do we need to remove the burial records of everyone who does not have a marker now? There are ladies buried there. Eventually, names will turn up. And should we remove pictures of cemeteries that are included on memorial pages with no markers? Judging by the response I have gotten from two relatives of ladies buried by that marker, I don't intend to change it...and I wouldn't even if I had not heard from anyone. Cemeteries are not only places for headstones, but also for history. These kinds of suggestions irritate me, as you can plainly tell. Put your energy into something more productive.

Yes, related. Isaac N. was a brother to Benjamin G.W. Jones (1823-1898), whose daughter, Mary Belle Jones, Elson (1860-1929) was my great grandmother. How about you?

|Bill Hunt||RE: Andrew Jackson Ward|
No thanks. tho I appreciate the offer. I have no need to manage this memorial.
I notice that we have had communicate about Wetsel, which is my wife's family.
|Bill Hunt||RE: Andrew Jackson Ward|
Thanks for approving the change. He is "one of mine" but not closely related at all. He is my 'half 2nd cousin twice removed.' I do not know any of the descendants from that branch of the Ward family. Comment: the DAR information on this Ward family is sooooooo screwed up. I would like for it all to be corrected.
|Milissa C.||Thank you.|
Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate.
|Little Geno||RE: Robinson in Marionville Cem|
I believe I am related to a few of them at least. From what I have gathered so far, my 4th great grandfather, William Robinson, moved to Lawrence County, Missouri in the late 1830's or early 1840's. He is buried in the McClintock Cemetery in Union Township, Ste. Genevieve, Missouri because he died while living with his daughter, Elizabeth, and son-in-law, James McClintock. According to 1850 US Census, William was living with six children in District 47, Lawrence County including the last, Gabriel, who was born in Missouri (presumably Lawrence county) about 1844. William's wife is not included in that Census so she must have died between 1844-1850 in Missouri, probably in Lawrence County, so she might be in Marionville but I have no idea what her name was and dates of those Robinson women recorded do not match up with what hers should be. It appears that a couple of the children remained in Lawrence County but was not able to match up any of their names to the memorials recorded in Marionville or other Lawrence County cemeteries. Daughters could be recorded under married names but can not find marriage records. As to other Robinson's buried in Lawrence County, my connection is even more nebulous.
|Katrina Dawn Miller--UDC--Sherman, TX.||RE: Dr. Littleton Davis|
I do not know what cemetery he is buried at. According to my research he's buried somewhere in Overton County. His daughter, Martha Davis, married Henry Hensley in Overton and they traveled to Cannon, Texas with their children. Their daughter, Delia married James Miller, which is my line. I created Dr. Littleton a memorial so I could link my family for easier research. I'm a member of the UDC under Henry Hensley and their organization has helped me a lot with my research into both the Hensley and Davis families. One of Dr. Littleton's sons also fought for the Confederacy and their research proved he was from Overton.
|Katrina Dawn Miller--UDC--Sherman, TX.||Dr. Littleton Davis|
Dr. Davis is my 4th great grandfather. I've been researching his children for a long time. They all came from Overton. I have records proving this.
