Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family research for over 30 years. My families are Orbin, Collins, Tiller, Miles, Smith, Swallow, Hill, Schunk, Keown/Cowan/Cowen, Grable, Haney, Hines, Howard, Riley, Lee, Leatherman. I am also doing my husbands side Neeson, Brooks, Beamer, Herring/Herron, Carman, Egglestone, Vincent, Sanders, and so many others. I was born in Macon, Missouri and lived there till I was 10. Then we moved to Columbia and then moved to Bevier when I was 13. I have several family members still in Macon, Bevier, Kaseyville and all over Macon County.
I have been interested in my family for as long as can remember. The Titanic has always been a special interest of mine and as a child I discovered that my Grandma Mae and Grandpa Smith were alive when this happened all of a suddenly history became real and not a story so I started my family research. My Grandpa Smith wanted to know about his father's and mother's family so I began digging. The joy on my Grandpa's face when I found something new still keeps me looking after his death hoping to bring joy to someone else searching for family.
I do find a grave so family members can find each other. No one deserves to be forgotten.
Any photo I take of headstones can be used by anyone who is doing a family project.

RE: Mary Leedom
Thanks, Penny. Add the pics to the other memorial. I would be fine with about a month of winter with a few pretty snows here and there, then spring could come again. Still haven't had a killing frost down here in Ashland. How are you guys?

Thanks, Penny. We're doing pretty good - just can't believe summer is almost over. With all the rain this year, we gave up on our garden after replanting a couple times. Thank goodness for volunteer tomatoes showing up here and there! Weeds are thriving, too!

RE: Ralph Valelly #110858721
Hi Penny,
We haven't gotten rain for a while. Missed the last round completely.

I found Ralph at Oakland. I messed up. I have removed the pics from yours. I see that David Sharp has added Ralph to Oakland. I can put the pics back on yours, if you want to move Ralph, or I can put them on David's. Whichever you think is right.

Just let me know what to do.

Sorry, I don't remember what I was thinking about him.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Bessie Bradley Justice
You added Connie Dolores Howard Staiger (1948 - 2013)* as a child to my mother Bessie Bradley Justice 1905=1998. Please remove this person as soon as possible. I didn't give permission for you to add. This person is 6 years younger than me so I know she doesn't belong in our family.
