You are welcome. Enjoy!
|Kristen Barkhimer Koziara||RE: PAUL ROBERT LEGGAT|
Thank you!! This was my first attempt at finding a gravestone or in this case a marker for someone. It was a wonderful feeling to know that someone had been found and recognized....can't wait to continue helping as it's a very heartening feeling at the time.

By Googling this cemetery one may find the link that takes you to a list of all the indigent and unidentified graves. Paul's maker is among them.

I am checking into this cemetery and it seems there are no stones, it is mainly a cemetery for indigents and there are small round metal markers where there is one date and a name. I plan to call this cemetery as I was going over today but they are not open but on Wed and Thur....will msg you back when I find out something.....
|Don Skinner||RE: WILLIAM MASTERS|
No problem I was happy to do it
|Kristen Barkhimer Koziara||Paul Robert Leggatt|
I will try to get over there within the next couple days and get a pic. I am new to this so will do my best.
I live just a few miles away from this cemetery but have not been there before.
Will let you know this week what I get.
|Cynthia Farmer-Nold||BLM records help find cemetery names|
One can search the Bureau of Land Management for who held the first ownership (patent) for property in Missouri. You put in state, county, Township number, Range number, and Section number. When I did Osage County for T 42, R 7, Section 3, I found that Reuben Cox acquired 4 parcels of land from the government beginning 1852, and Joshua Cox got one 1854. That more than suggests why the Cox name was attached to the cemetery. I could guess (but don't have an easy way to find out) that a Cooper owned the land later.
|Cynthia Farmer-Nold||USGS contact for Feuersville spelling|
You don't have an email listed so I can't forward. Here is contact information for explaining the spelling to a US Geological Survey person at Rolla who said he would forward my appeal to correct spelling from "Fuersville" to the Missouri Board on Geographic Names. It could only help if you emailed him, too, since you know so much. email@example.com
|Cynthia Farmer-Nold||Feuers, now Feuersville|
Thanks for the excellent information on Feuer/Feuers. Another Find-A-Graver with ancestors in Koenig Cemetery told me there is a German grammatical meaning and reason for adding an "s" to a surname that doesn't work in English as we were trying to figure out if it was Arnsperger or Arnspergers. I know WWI had an effect on my Germam ancestors, mostly on whether they spoke the language in public and taught the children. On military name changes, the name of my WWII mentor/friend changed from Runion to Runyan due to the Navy. People making Find-A-Grave pages have been frustrated at not finding Feuers death certificates, and the misunderstanding of the name is the reason - misreading, misfiling. It's a rare name. On cemeteries, Osage County plat books don't mark little family cemeteries with croses like Saline County's old one do. When you referred to family burial place north of Feuersville, is that the same as the currently listed "Cox-Cooper" cemetery? On "Christ." Feuers death certificate, I saw the name "Cox" on the cemetery line but couldn't read the first word/name. Am I right in believing you have been to the cemetery? When I figured out ways to search for misspelled death certificates, I found a child's death certificate, Arvil Clifford Feuers (d. 1914), and place of burial said "Gerloff Cemetery." I pulled up the grave page map and the 1913 county plat book and compared. Cox-Cooper appeared to be on the north part of the east half of Section 3 that Gerloff owned. Am I in the right place? I'm going to forward an email about Feuersville place name problems and see if you want to help since you know a great deal.
|Cynthia Farmer-Nold||Re: Nancy Feuer(s), Pointers Creek, Osage County|
I just did an edit on her name to remove the final "s". I did not see the original death certificate. Perhaps you did, and maybe if you saw it with an "s" you are right. The state archives has her transcribed twice, both times as Feuer. It seems to me that the Feuer family living west of the Gasconade River tended to use Feuer. (Excepetion is Herbert C. who came to Sedalia as a Feuer and ended life with an "s" on his surname, Feuers. The Feuers group east of the Gasconade tended to spell it Feuers, and their descendants in Saline County and north continue with Feuers.
I'm asking about Nancy. Are you sure she used and "s"? I'm curious because so many people don't know how to spell the name. I have made it a quest. On post 1910 death certificates the state archives have the Feuer and Feuers name(s) filed as Fener, Fever, and Fevers, and I spent yesterday sending corrections to state archives. In addition, I sent corrections to LDS Family Search which changed the place name in Jefferson Township (east of Gasconade) from misspelled Fuersville to Feuersville. When I sent information resource links to Find A Grave, they likewise changed the same misspelling and suggested I contact USGS because that government agency sets the place names. So I am in process of doing that. You've got it substantially right, an "e" before and after the "u". I just wondered about how you knew to put an "s" at the end of the name. Thanks.
