Re: McClures Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I should have known better about the year of his birth. Also, I took a look on Ancestry and there is at least one tree saying she died Mar 30 1928 in Oklahoma. I added that, but also put a note saying it was from Ancestry and not proven. However, since there is no Missouri death certificate for her, it's a good bet that it's true? Probably a mistake on the stone, which happened quite a bit.
Interestingly, there is a little story of how she saved her father in the civil war. He was about to be hung, when she pleaded to the Union soldiers for his life. The one in charge had a daughter her age and ended up releasing him from the rope.
RE: Wm. Jefferson Pemberton Hi Jane, so good to hear back from you so fast. Your suggestion is well taken and I always intended on putting another close up so it would be easier to read. I have another close one from years ago that is not digital that I want to use. It shows the cemetery in bad shape. Overgrown in the background before we fixed things. You talk about perspective, well you will get it with these old pictures. You can read the stone real easy though. Been on today updating and rearranging William`s and others biographies. Filling in some of the cracks and rewriting some things. Just generally making things better if possible. I like your new picture and you look great. I need to drop a few also. Let me know if you run into any more Snoddy`s around there. Some of Joseph`s uncles and brothers and sisters came to Howard County and vicinity too. Take care of yourself. Best regards, Eli
RE: Wm. Jefferson Pemberton Thanks Jane! I will be adding all kinds of stuff to this Cemetery and about the people in it as I have the time. I have a very good picture of Wm. Jefferson Pemberton taken before his marriage around 1867. It is all a work in progress as you well know. Keep up the good work as always. Sincerely, Eli Chandler
Wm. Jefferson Pemberton Hi Rosie Cat, my name is Eli Chandler and I am a 3rd great grandson of Wm. Jefferson Pemberton. I just became a member of Find A Grave last month and I have talked to Nancy Meadows about a lot of graves trying to figure some things out. We have worked on the Mott Cemetery`s lately. I can tell you that William is in the Snoddy/Garner Cemetery in Howard County near where he lived and had a farm. I looked at all the other Snoddy names from the destroyed Snoddy Cem. but don`t recognize any. I probably am related to some because I do know that other Snoddy`s related to mine where around this area. My family recently restored the Snoddy/Garner Cem. and William has a nice stone there. Please look it up and tell me what you think. I just put on a bunch of pictures but the one of William I had was to far away to put on this time. Most all the rest of them are on there though. If you don`t mind and when you have the time it would be good to delete William from the Randolph County Cemetery. Tell Nancy I said hey when you talk to her. She told me I would have to talk to you to get it changed. Thanks for all you do. I am just learning all the ropes on Find A Grave. I am sure we will be talking again. Sincerely, Eli Chandler
