|Bio and Links|
I have been doing family research for over 25 years. My families are Orbin, Collins, Tiller, Miles, Smith, Swallow, Hill, Schunk, Keown, 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 love to do family research because it makes history more real, that historical events happened to family members who lived through these events. It makes history come alive.|

|Farm Girl from MO.||One more correction!|
Please correct the spelling of Mr. John Shaver's rank on Hewey Keown's memorial. It should be: Sergeant
You have it correct on John Keown's memorial.
I also added a photo copy of the poem as a photo on Hewey & John's memorials so you will know how it was originally. I can remove them at some point since it repeats what you have already added to their bio. but I thought maybe you might like to see it.
Thanks, Farm Girl from MO.
|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: Please check|
Must have been another one of my typing errors. The writter had it spelled "Keown" so if you haven't changed it already please do so along with my other typing error for Sergeant John Shaver. I spelled Sergeant incorrectly in my message.
|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: Please check|
Yes, but then I have found a couple more mistakes. One is mine I am sure. The word "Sergeant" is mistyped on both Hewey and John's memorial and I think their last name is spelled wrong. Shouldn't it be Keown! We all make mistakes. You may also get a correction for both of them using the edit tab so I hope we can get it corrected this time around. Thanks for adding the info. even if we both had a couple of typos hear and there.
|Farm Girl from MO.||Sorry for one more message on this one.|
I see I made and error in my first message too.
The third line also had the word "had" at the end when it should have been "find"
My most recent message has the correct sentence so please make the corrections to the bio. area.
Sorry about my error. Let me know when you get the corrections done and I will look it over again. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.
|Farm Girl from MO.||Oops, typing error perhaps.|
The third line of the poem I sent has a word mistyped. I think you left out the "c" in scarce.
Please correct it to read:
Better soldiers than Hewey we scarce ever find,
|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: Hugh Keown #72704951|
Yes, I can send it your way here. Please feel free to add it to their bio. if you like. I have a virtual cemetery on my contributor page that I have included others that served in this company. Several are relatives of my husband's family including his great-grandfather, William Henry Murphy and two of William's brothers, Thomas and Benjamin. Check it out if you like. I will, as time permits, add more names to it since I am not nearly finished looking for more memorials. Hope you enjoy what I send. Farm Girl from MO.
The following was taken from "THE COMPANY ROLL With a Brief Comment Upon Each Member of COMPANY I, 7th Cavalry Missouri Volunteers" by Seargeant John Shaver, Kirksville, Missouri - 1898, page 14:
Old Johnny Koewn was loyal and good,
And he stayed in the service as long as he could,
But being quite old and not very large,
Was badly compelled to take a discharge.
Hewey Koewn, I remember got a wound on the head,
By a horse jumping on him while lying in bed,
Better soldiers than Hewey we scarce ever had,
But the wound on his head caused the lose of his mind.
If you add the poems to the bio. area of their memorials you might want to include the source of the poems on both memorials. Both poems were on page 14. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.

You are wonderful! I look forward to the picture.
|C Proctor||Bertha D. Apgar #96794287|
I am so glad you photographed Bertha D. Apgar's grave stone. She has been a missing piece of my puzzle for many years. Even though I have a picture of her, I did not know her name. She first married Charley Pate who died in a few years. Her second husband was Chas. P. Apgar, who raised Charley Jr.
I am hoping you will e-mail me a copy of the picture of the grave stone. I would be grateful.

|Jadeania Orr||RE: Bradley family|
Thanks so much for the transfer. Hope you and Randy are doing well.
|Jane DeBellis||Carl Thomas Butterly|
Me again...Carl Thomas Butterly was my grandfather's brother. His mother was Sally Forman not Pauline Chrisman. Pauline Chrisman was his wife. The death certificate was filled out in error (likely due to the emotional trauma of Carl's unexpected death). I discovered this following a story of a family abduction of his youngest son by Carl's brother-in-law who lived in Detroit. If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them via email (email@example.com).
