Betty Jo (Powers) Alberson
I saw that you are researching the Powers surname. My name is Betty Jo (Powers) Alberson. My father was Howard Franklin Powers. My mother was Mary Jane Alice (Swift) Powers. I am trying to make contact with anyone who knew anything about them or their family. I have started a family tree on with the litte info I had. I am not sure all information is accurate. My mother died when I was 3 and I was taken from my father after her death. Several of my siblings were also taken from him. I want to know what happened and why and am trying to find any relatives left that are interested in talking to me. Any information you have would be very welcome.

RE: Alice Gregory
Hello John
I was at the Dixon Spgs cemetery yesterday "visiting" my GG grandparents and checked to see if there were any photo requests. Alice was the only one of yours I was able to locate. There is also a large monument with Gregory on it but the sun was facing wrong to get a decent shot so I will get a photo of that next time I'm there and will continue searching for the other Gregory's.

Martha L. Urani #130902079
Would you move your memorial for Martha L. White Urani? She is buried in the Antioch Cemetery.

The Antioch Baptist Church of Christ Cemetery is located on private property and is not being maintained or used for burials.

I photographed the headstone the other day and I am certain I was in the Antioch Cemetery. Thanks.

I see that your connection to this man is through his wife Eliza. Do you know if he was married before, and if he is the father of Robert Benton Willis who married Janett Rinker? Janett is related to my husband although he never knew her, and I am interested in any Willis as I try to unravel the mystery of my Willis family.

Luckily, these 2 survived time. I am sorry but I don't think that they were that close together. I think this was almost a charity type lot. At Least 1/3 are marked, which is pretty good.

Happy Hunting.

Sparkman HIllcrest (SH) will not provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed to in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request.

You can also go through the SH website at this address:

Click the third tab that says "Other Requests." Fill in the blanks. Where it says: " What is your request in regard to?" use the drop down menu and select "other." In the message put the name and birth and death dates of the person you are looking for and that they are buried at Sparkman Hillcrest in Dallas, Texas. Once SH has replied, add the information to your photo request.

Thank you for your help.

Thank You Regarding Hardister's
I want to thank for taking the time to place my Hardister uncles Andrew, Alexander and Samuel with their parents, William B. and Martha J (Gooding) Hardister.

There just remains one orphan out there their son Jocephas "Joe" Hardister who I am sure will soon be reunited with his family.

I noticed on your Bio that you are researching the Brown surname I too have Brown on my family tree.

My Hardiser line married into the Brown family. I descend from Coleman Brown to William "Billy" Brown & Elizabeth (Hornbeck) Brown to Reuben Brown & Elizabeth Artman to John Allen Brown & Priscilla (Hardister) Brown to Nancy Isabelle "Belle" (Brown) Hardister & James Henry Hardister.

Any connections to your line?

photo request William Jordan
Hi John. On a trip through SE Missouri last fall, I photographed all the headstones in Liberty Cemetery. I went these pics but could not find a Jordan surname. I also went through the headstones that are missing pieces of data, but none matched any part of the name or dates. I wish I had better news for you. I have read there was at least one tornado in the 1940s that destroyed numerous headstones. You may want to check with the Kennett, Missouri library or Dunklin County Genealogical Society, they may have some local knowledge of the Jordan family or Liberty Cemetery. Best of Luck.

Annie & John Watts - Troy City Cemetery
Hi John ~

I saw your photo request for these two, but I don't find them listed in that cemetery. This cemetery was inventoried a number of years ago - not sure how long ago but I know they have people listed were the stones are no longer there. Here is the link if you'd like to look:

Do you have anything telling you that they are in this cemetery - or anything saying where they might be buried within the cemetery? I'd be glad to look again :-)
