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 M.
Well, thank you, Penny! I always feel bad about duplicates to begin with, but especially when I'm the cause of someone deleting earlier memorials. I will be glad to transfer mine to you if you would like them. You're a sweetheart!

Gable/ Williams
I am trying to find information on Milton Vincent Williams who died in Adair County in 1935. His mother was Eliza Gable/Cable or something like that. I was told they were originally from Tennessee and then moved to Greene County, Missouri and then Milton ended up in Kansas City and then Kirksville. I'm not sure if this is any connection to you or not. If you have any information I would appreciate the help.

Thanks for your hard work
Thanks for creating the page and pictures.

It means a lot to see this. You don't know my family, I'm guessing. You will be touching many lives for a long time with your efforts.

RE: Harriett Doneghy
Thanks for checking your source for this memorial. She may very well be buried in the La Plata cemetery but does not have a stone and therefor is not listed in cemetery records. There are a lot of burials in the La Plata cemetery that are unmarked so don't move or delete your memorial unless you find another source to prove that Harriett Doneghy is not buried in La Plata.

Yes, I know that death certificates have lots of errors. I have come across several of them for my close family members.

Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.

RE: Sarah Tully Sanders
So, your listing is not really for a grave?

Do you have have a location for the grave of Sarah Tully Sanders? Your listing doesn't give a location or cemetery name. :(
