Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Moberly, Missouri; have lived in Pilot Grove, Jefferson City, Linn and Columbia, Missouri as well as Lake Jackson, TX.

Much of my own research revolves around the Franklin County, MO. area with the Brinkmann/Cole and Brune/Weeke families and on my husband's side the Pilot Grove and St. Louis areas with the Ellebracht/Behlmann and Litteken/Weber families.

If you are researching Missouri relatives, be sure to check out the state death certificate database, found here:

Missouri Death Certificates

Cooper County cemetery information can also be found online:

Cooper county Cemeteries

Much of the information I post originates from those two sites.

Always happy to make corrections, additions or add links to memorials.

I will transfer to family as long as the memorial in question is not one of my family.

While I am happy to share what I have with individuals, you MAY NOT repost my pictures of individuals/groups on other websites. Reference or link to this one if you wish, and hopefully increase the size of the findagrave community!

RE: Norma D. Scott
Oh, in regard to my last message to you: I found what I thouht was to be done to either the last name or the maiden name and I was wrong, it was saying NOT to capitalize them. It's all good!

RE: Norma D. Scott
grandmacarol, I thank you so much! I appreciate the picture on her memorial page and I made the change. I remember reading that one of the two names are suppose to be all in CAPS, but I can't remember which one. But thank you!

RE: John alkire

I pulled his death date directly from the obituary published in the Holt County Sentinel, 15 February 1901, page 4. It is in the fourth column about half way down.

Carol: How do you know that Paul Henry's Find A Grave #110403875 first name is Luther? It doesn't show on the stone. He has a brother named Luther M. Henry Find A Grave #110403880. Their Brother, John Wilcox Henry Find A Grave #18761297 is my Grandfather.

Thank you, William Bishop

RE: Norris family
You ask a good question. The Norrises moved all over the country but were always drawn back to their home town in Culpeper. Two were killed in the Omaha tornado in 1913 and are buried in Culpeper.

Here's the primary information I have on Thomas William and the family he had with his first wife, Sophia Hickman. He had no children with his second wife.

Source 77: The Norris Family of Maryland and Virginia, Genealogy of Thomas Norris 1361 - 1930, Harry Alexander Davis, (1941, Transcript 4 Vols.), CS/71/N858 and Microfilm 88/5447 MicRR.
Page 577 #584 RICHARD (7) NORRIS…
Children: (1st wife)…
ii Thomas William: b 1825. He moved to Missouri in 1850’s and married prior to 1854 Sophia Hutchinson, born Missouri 1831. He is listed in Cooper Co., Mo. in 1860 as a clerk. Sophia died before 1870 and returned to Culpeper in the late 1870's.
He married (2), date and place unknown, Isabelle Herr, who was a native of Washington, D.C. about 1885 and resided at 401 Massachusetts Ave. where Thomas died 7 Feb. 1897 of apoplexy. He was buried at Culpeper, Va.
Isabella survived him a few years and resided at 417 Massachusetts Ave. Her will was probated in 1901; she mentions her sister-in-law Columbia Ann Herr who is to have the rents from land in Washington Co., Md.; names grandnieces, and nephews Leftwich and Eubank. These are not Norris relations. She is buried in Culpeper, Va. beside her husband, she had no children. Thomas had by his first wife:
1. Hall: b. 1854 Mo. He remained in Missouri when his father returned to Virginia. He married …….. and is said to have some descendants now living. He mad several visits to Virginia.
2. Allan: b. 1856, died before 1870.

Clayton Cemetery, Overton
We note your memorials on the Henry family in the referenced cemetery. Would you please tie Luther #110403880 to his father Isaac Newton Henry #9123987 and his brother buried in that cemetery: Paul Henry #110403875 and we have connected Noah #134707526.
Obituaries and family info say Catharine Henry the mother is buried in the family plot with the children who died young. Also there's children Dora Ellis Henry b May 21, 1871, d Apr 12, 1886 and William Forest Henry b Aug 26, 1867 and d Oct 20, 2886, her children. Can you determine if they are buried there or somewhere else in Cooper Co. Thank you for your help.
