Bio and Links
Bio Photo ***I highly recommend visiting the forums page to keep up on site news.***

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.

Information on several Illinois cemeteries obtained from:

Genealogy Trails, Illinois

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

1/2015 update: Going through memorials I have transferred, I'm astonished at the number of people who wanted transfers but have done nothing with them. If you ask for a transfer, please add a bio, add a least add a flower!

FAG memorial for Ehefrau Kaempfer.
You kindly left a message pointing out some inconsistencies with 2 memorials I had. I have deleted the one that didn't make sense (Splice Creek) and added the into to the Pleasant Grove in case it helps find the grave. Thank you!

RE: walnut grove church cemetery
I'm sure it's Walnut Grove Cemetery, even the obit shows the name. :o)

RE: walnut grove church cemetery
I'm thinking the cemetery with only 2 graves should probably be Walnut Grove Cemetery. I'll try and find out this week to be 100%. :o)

Just a word of thanks for the work you do. I never imagined I would see a photo of my 3rd great grandfathers' headstone (Ralph Lotspeich), particularly since I am from England.

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

I cannot tell you all my secrets. Lol
I use the same Cooper Co, Cemeteries that you use on your profile page. Click on parent directory, then I just clicked on all cemeteries that are in Billingsville. :o)
Hope he deletes that cemetery.

Re: Maples
Hmmm, I am not remembering that I had made this and I just may have come across it while looking at Buncetons records? I usually don't make memorials that I don't have a stone photo for, but I have done a few...

I find this:

Name: Lanie (?) Maples
Birth Date: 09 Apr 1885
Death Date: 21 Apr 1924
Cemetery: Hopewell Cemetery
Description: Location: T-46-N; R N; Section 26, near Tipton, Mo.

Name: Mrs.John Maples
Birth Date: 07 Apr 1885
Death Date: 22 Apr 1924
Cemetery: Bunceton Masonic Cemetery
Description: Bunceton, Mo.
Cemetery Records of Cooper County, Missouri Volume I

So they are the same person? And why would she be listed under both when she was originally in Baxter Cem?

RE: 1 o o f
Never heard back from him. Fought, you asked me about Billingsville cemetery, I found 2 Faught's, an Infant and Edith Faught buried in Shoemaker Cemetery off Billingsville Rd on Wilhelmina Whitehurse property. Does that help? Sorry it took me so long to get back to you, July and August have been busy months for me. I'm planning on going to the cemetery next to I.O.O.F after first frost. Last time I was there, no one takes care of it, so very overgrown and I am not fond of posion ivy and ticks. If you'd like to join in the fun, let me know. :o)
