Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history for 10+ years. Family names I am researching are:
St. Cin, Lanius, Spinks, Campbell, Compton, Reeves, Baker, Berkel, Fisher and many other related.
I enjoy going to the cemeteries. I like to be able to place flowers on the graves of people who have passed on. So many of these graves have been lost and or forgotten. I feel it is a blessing if I can help even a small few people find their lost loved ones.
I also like to imagine how and where people lived, some so very long ago.


I know 3 excellent guidelines for interacting with other people.

"Assume good faith."
"Use good manners."
"Don't bite the newcomers."

Hi Diana, My Uncle passed in the last week. I put him in the find a grave listings for CROSS ROADS BAPTIST CHURCH IN Leasburg Mo. My Aunt/ his wife is buried there SINCE 1996. Since I couldn't find her I added both. I then did a search for her name and found her at 'ANOTHER CEMETERY' Leasburg's Lea Cemetery memorial #108089232. Would you please delete that memorial. THANK YOU

RE: Hi
Hi Diana,

We have a glorious day here today; one of those rare and fine Michigan perfections with which Spring sometimes gifts us. Hope your day is glorious, too.

Lula E. Denny Barton
Hello Diana,
Regarding your memorial for Lula E. Denny Barton (77736006), Denny was not her maiden name, but was the surname of the husband she is buried with (Lewis Denny, memorial #77736021). She also married a Barton later, and had been married to an Arthur before she married Lewis Denney in 1910. There is also another memorial that has also been created for her: 93970836, by Alice P., under the name Lula E. Denny.

The E. in Lula's name is for Ethel. Her maiden was Marsey, or some spelling variation of that.

Lewis Denny's middle name was Joseph.

RE: Milton E Radford
Hello Diana,
Would you please scan page 416 of Ken Fiebelman's book "Ozark Hills Friends & Neighbors 1829-2000 about the Radford Family and email to me at: I have never heard of this author or his book but am curious about the contents. I would really appreciate it and it may help clear up some of these duplicate memorials entered on website. If there are many informational entries about the Radford Family where could I obtain a copy? Thank you very much for the information.

Milton E Radford
Hello, I am curious as to what source you used to enter this memorial #100972590 for Milton E Radford dob 5-1-1875 & dod 12-12-1956 that you entered on 11-20-12 at the west Fork Cemetery? There is a duplicate memorial #11938770 entered on 10-12-05 by Betty Radford at the Little Radford Cemetery for him also. The death certificate only states that the cemetery is local but a lot of his family is buried in the Little Radford Cemetery. Did you see & photograph his headstone or did you possibly have access to their cemetery records at West Fork Cemetery? I would like to clear this up and update the correct information on F.A.G. and on my family tree on Please let me know after researching. Thank you for volunteering on F.A.G.
He is our Great Grandfather.

George A Bailey
I have been doing research on George Bailey and find it tough to locate data without going through the "pay" sites. Usually these sites are charging for the same material you can get free if you keep looking on your own.

I believe I have located the George A Bailey I am looking for and wonder if you could verify it for me. This can be completed if you know 1 detail in his life. Was he in the Citizen Conservation Corp (CCC) in 1940 and sent to Houston County, MN for school/training? He would have been 18 years old at the time and became friends with my uncle, Leo Privett. Later they remain friends keeping in contact during WWII. He also was in contact with family after the war. Of course, you would probably not know the last part of this story, but you might know about the CCC because the paperwork is on-line.

Any news would be helpful and delightful to hear.

I know you have some connections to Cook Station so I'd like to invite to like the Cook Station Community facebook page. We have over 200 people in the group and they are posting some amazing historical items and pictures. We are going to have the 1st annual Old Cook Station Day on June 6 this year at the old schoolhouse. There mercantile will also be open for tours and the owners of the hotel and feed store cottages are going to be renting them out for anyone interested.

William Eggers
Thank you so much for the transfer of my GGGGrandfather's memorial!

Added by LLondon on Jan 31, 2015 4:16 PM
I'm wondering if you might be related to the Eggers family?
William R. Eggers is my 3rd Great Grandfather. I believe you have him listed as William A Eggers (which may be correct, as I've noticed a's and r's seem to be difficult to distinguish on handwritten documents). Your William A Eggers and my William R both died at the home of their son-in-law, Stephen Anderson (my GGGrandfather). This all leads me to believe that they may be the same person. However, I have him married to Elizabeth Ogle. I'm wondering what your source might be for the wife you have listed?

Thank you so much for all your hard work and in advance for any light that you might be able to shed on this subject.
