Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for over 20 years and have found resources like FindAGrave to be very helpful.
I believe that one should give as much as they take, thus I've become a contributor to this site.

Transfers and Photos

Since I am not related to most of the memorials I've created, I will gladly transfer them if you are family of the person memorialized. Please feel free to use my photos for personal use, for other purposes I ask you credit me as the photographer.

Obituaries

Find A Grave prefers that volunteers not add obituaries to their memorials due to potential copyright issues. However, since obituaries and death notices published before 1923 are in the public domain (see How Long Copyrights Last), I will add them. Please do not request the addition of obituaries or death notices published in 1923 or later. If you would like to write an original biography, however, I'll be happy to post it, with attribution.

Please DO NOT add images of death certificates to my memorials. Missouri Death Certificates are readily available here.

Curtis -

Would you have the information thru which I can contact the Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City - I an wondering if it is possible to obtain a date when Raymond P Hazelton was buried there. I do not wish to assume this memorial please. I am too old to do it justice!

Arthur Mason Allen Jr.
I wanted to let you know that Mr. Allen had another child. Arthur Augustus Allen, born December 1884. He was my grandfather. He is a half brother of Lotus Allen, whose actual name is Emma Lotus, and was also born in 1884 but in Febuary.

Arthur's mother is Emily Duiguid Cofer and Lotus' mother is Dora Usher. Dora Usher is also called Dora Allen in several documents, however, I have no information that they were actually married.

The Infant's mother is Elizabeth Ward, she also gave birth to Mildren Allen who lived until 1983. I received documentation on this by hiring someone from Ancestry so I am 100% certain of my facts.

Thank you.

78480386 - Orville Knapp
Hey Curtis,
I just thought I'd let you know, if you didn't already, that the Orville Knapp, that you inputted here on Findagrave, was once a popular 1930's bandleader and saxophonist. He played in the sax section of the Coon-Sanders Orchestra before organizing a orchestra of his own and called his music, "The Music Of Tomorrow". In July of 1936, he crashed his plane while practicing landings and take-offs. His orchestra then became the George Olsen Orchestra not long after his passing.
If you could add this info to his biog space, it would be appreciated.
* this info can be found on page #73 of a book written by Leo Walker called, "The Wonderful Era Of The Great Dance Bands" - copyright 1964
Thanks,
Roland.

Geraldine Bradley
Since I am a relative, please transfer the findagrave site for Geraldine Wilson Bradley (101858569) to me (47578444). You have her listed as her own parent as well as her own child. I can clear that up as I know who her parents were and two of her other children. Thank you, Anne Mallinson

Emerson E. Willhite

Hoping to learn the source for Emerson E. Willhite's middle name being Ellsworth?

Emerson E. Willhite is one of my Great Great Uncles.

I have accumulated some records for Emerson over the years, but could never confirm his middle name. I am happy to see that someone seems to have figured it out, but also hoping to learn the source.

By the way, My Great Grandfather, Ira Clyde Willhite, my Great Grandmother Mabel (Moore) Willhite, my Grandfather, Ross Moore Willhite, his two brothers, James and Ira Jr., their wives, and their half sister Laverna, are all buried in the adjacent plot (Block 3, Lot 69), next to Emerson, Emerson's wife Lilly, and some of their children.

Any information and/or help will be appreciated.

Regards, Rick Willhite

Memorial #94862153
Hi,

We were wondering where the information 'Valentine Wilkins Nutter Cleveland' came from? VW Cleveland/ aka Valentine W. Cleveland (changed name from 'Nutter' to middle initial of 'W') died in 1900 in Chicago, ILL, and was buried beside his brother there. We have called the cemetery there and confirmed this. Genealogy, as well as newspaper clippings also help to confirm the ancestry. Still, we're open to new information! Is it possible to find sources for your information re his name? Can you recommend who we might contact to find out who/how/when the 'VW Cleveland' tombstone was placed there?

There might be two VW Clevelands!

Thanks so much.
