Cave Family Cemetery My understandings are: The Cave Family Cemetery, as located by the GPS Coordinates given, may not be in its exact original location, but is close, and the now totally obliterated William Family Cemetery has been included virtually (if that's the correct terminology). Should the latter be explained? You say, "It is now a contractor's open lot.", but apparently some folks think there is something to be seen. Perhaps those making photo requests should be informed that it will never happen. You also say, "Only three stones were identifiable but they are not now in place." Where are the stones and is there any thought of resetting them in the "contractor's open lot"? Viewing all CFC interments indicates there is a photo for Col John Williams (1778 - 1829) Memorial# 98431224. Clicking on the link, there is no photograph. This may give some folks false hope. You might be interested in Loucks Cemetery (#2594137), Wayne, Steuben County, NY that I created last summer. It's a similar situation except for combining the Williams family.
RE: Columbia Skip Grossnickle and Phillip Dollarhide Prather, III are Beta brothers, Phil also a fellow '60 Kewpie. Saw him last September. I remember Skip started as a Freshman on the Kirksville Tigers football team. Charlie Diggs? Sounds like a Columbia name. Seems like his father was in Cosmopolitan (civic) Club with my father, a businessman (grocer?) I'm thinking. Guess I should remember Jim Bob Mansfield ... the name is surely familiar. Was he involved with the Missouri Theater Project? I haven't been inside the Theater to see the magnificent renovations.
HTML & Memorial Transfers I have copied and pasted below the HTML programming to return links in the bio section of Find A Grave Memorials. One of two things will happen when I mash the "Leave This Message" button: 1) the programming won't be changed or 2) more likely Find A Grave will act on the programming and return garbage. If lucky 1) will happen, but it may not be clear how to proceed. Text Find A Grave Visitor Sees
Just checked and found four Memorial transfer requests sent to you know who on March 15 using SAC's. In doing so, my Contributor number and email address are there, as well as all remaining necessary info. I don't understand sending to info@__. Do you mean firstname.lastname@example.org? I have lots of good family info I want to enter and it would be so much easier if I had control to do it myself. The only response I've had from this machine or person was when I pointed out a duplicate Memorial. That got "merged".
Misc. I was looking at some of your photo credits and would like to know how difficult it was to get T.V.F.T.H. to transfer Memorial# 58366994 to you. Do you know that person? He/she has most of the Memorials in my mother's family cemetery (Rohrbach) north of California, MO. Most buried there are relatives and I'd love to maintain their Memorials. You created Memorial# 100785831 that is now maintained by Robert H. The bio says "Two of the children, Ann Elizabeth & Thomas lived in the world and have Find A Grave memorials to be found here." Do you know how to provide links in a bio so folks can get to those Memorials quickly? I've been schooled in how to do that.
RE: Williams-Jordon I know George Rootes b/c he married Kim Kabler, Hickman '61 and he is a Shell man. Steve McVeigh is also a Shell alum. I've seen George at Shell alumni functions here in Houston, as well as Mizzou Engineering gatherings.
I am a member of Beta Theta Pi and was in the pledge class with Kenny Boy (Enron) Lay, Hickman '60. Sally Orr may have been in the Class of '63. I don't really know her. Her brothers were Scott and Bill. Bill passed away Monday, Nov. 23, 2015. He doesn't have a Find A Grave Memorial and did not have services at the time of his death. I know Betsy fairly well. In addition to being in our Class of '60, we lived in the same area of Columbia back in the day. I don't know Rusty Antel or the two Hornets. FB guys I recall are Pete Clay ('59) and John Horstdaniel. Barbara and Frances Lawson used to bounce back and forth between Fulton and Columbia.
I found Memorial# 37205589 for Sgt Reuben Hatton. Did you know that there are four Boone Co. cemeteries with "Locust Grove" in their names? You have done a very nice job of writing Reuben's biographical information. I plan to publish a list of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 veterans buried near the conjunction of Steuben, Yates, and Schuyler Counties in New York. That list will be on our Town of Wayne, Steuben County, Website. Let me know if you have success in getting Reuben a plaque. I've taken a couple of pokes at that for some of our Patriots, but have had no success.
RE: Williams-Jordon Actually I stumbled into the family. We live half of a year in western NY, where I'm working on Find A Grave Memorials in nearby cemeteries. Trying to find family often leads me to distant cemeteries. Such was the case here. Then I start nosing around and when I find edits that should be made, I enter them. George Washington A. Cook (1836 - 1939) in Riverside Cemetery, Jones County, IA needed family and I found that, for a while, Mary Rebecca Taylor Jordan Hinkle (1851 - 1925) was his wife. As for Williams, Mike, Ruby and Patricia Jo were in my Hickman class. You might have heard of George Minor Rootes from Fulton, who is older than you, and Steve McVeigh, who is younger.
