Marsha Williams Byrd of Missouri
I was thinking of you the other day. Hope things are good with you. I transferred the Memorial to you. I will be interested to read what you add. I like to read about the ones who came before us.
Sandi is in the University ICU. She is having trouble getting air in and carbon dioxide out. She is strong and I believe she will get well enough to come home but the doctors and respiratory folks say one of these times she won't come out of it. She is only 61. I tell my family members constantly the outcome of smoking and none will listen even though the evidence is right before them. Pray for her please. Thank you

RE: Peets in Bellefontaine

Please contact me at so we can "talk" more about the family of Charles Septimus Peet. I will not divulge your email address to anyone else.

RE: John Williams
Wow, you are a real detective! I would be interested in seeing some of the documentation once you get everything pinned down. I don't know anything about Susan, other than verifying where she was buried when we traveled to Missouri. It must have been one of your other contacts who suggested Susannah was her mother, because I didn't have anything about that. Thanks for keeping me posted on your progress.

RE: William Strother
Hello Anna,

I believe it is William Strother, his wife Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman and his wife Susanna Coleman. However, there is no writing left on the four tombstones - it has weathered away, which would seem to indicate that the tombstones are very old. They are located on private property in a small grove of trees in front of our house at 475 Arrowhead Springs, Versailles, KY.

This is a quote from page 60 of the Register of the State Historical Society, Vol. 19, No. 55 (January 1921). (notes in parentheses are mine).

"I am informed that the old homestead (of Susanna Hawkins Coleman - daughter of Thomas Coleman) is now the property of J.A. Eaton (our property is part of what was formerly the Eaton property based on late 1800's/early 1900's county maps). I am quite sure that the remains of William Strother, his wife, Anna Kavanaugh, Thomas Coleman, and his wife Susanna, and perhaps a number of descendants were buried on the Eaton farm."

According to our neighbour, who has lived here since the land was divided, the foundations of the old home were on a creek bed about 100 yards from the cemetery. I have not had the opportunity to explore and see if I could find the foundation stones.

RE: Columbia
​Hi Anna,
It's been a whirlwind three weeks for us. We've been at the Lake now for a week and a half and not even 50% set up for summer. Betsy ('60 also) and the Windmillers lived about three blocks from us in Columbia. I visited the Windmiller farm a few times while at Mizzou. A frat brother, Barney Beall, was Betsy's main man for two or three years and got Dr. Windmiller's permission to hold Beta parties there. I drove my '48 Pontiac fire chief's car down and up that so called road on the Backbone. One party I was driving through one of those parties when my car acted like it was at the end of a massive rubber band. In a sense it was. After close inspection, I had evidently run over a fence that was strung out for future installation. Unfortunately it was close enough to an end that it flipped up and wrapped around the axle.
I've never heard of the Fred Flintstone building it must be the one on the west side of that T-intersection. Romano's erstwhile bowling alley and restaurant were on the east side towards Stephens College, if I recall correctly. The Guitar Building you worked in must have been renovated from the one I visited in the late 40's and early 50's to see my father.
Has John let you know the nature of and who he visited at Corning Glass Works? Interesting story about Charles Henry Hardin and John B. Williams. My $10 bet says the Switzler that you mention is closely related to the namesake of Switzler Hall at Mizzou. Did Jeff Davis make his speaking engagement before falling ill? I read that he was an irascible person. We visited Davis' Beauvoir in Biloxi, MS when we lived in Mandeville, LA. It was closed the day we were there.

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.

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 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".

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: Kauffman Transfer
You are very Welcome and please do let me know when you complete it. Your work on find a grave is wonderful and the information you can find is much more than most of us. Had one of those days because of another member on here as well. Do not let them get to you and keep your wonderful work up and your head held high for the memories you help to save for other to enjoy.
