Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am from Dunklin County, Missouri, and have spent most of my life in NE Arkansas SE Missouri area. In fact, one branch of my family has been in Dunklin County since 1838. That was BEFORE there was a Dunklin County! I am primarily interested in Evans, Roden, McClain, and Waddell families, and a few others that have a significant link to these. I hope that someday soon I will be on my home turf again. You just cannot beat those Swamp Rats of southern Missouri!

****FIND A GRAVE will not allow this photo( which I now have set as my profile photo) to be placed in the photo area of memorials. Why? Because Find a grave feels it is not an image that is personally attached to the deceased.
I as a wife of a Veteran and the grandmother of an active soldier feel the USA FLAG is personally attached to a veteran, after all they fought to defend it and served under this "image" IF that is not a personal attachment then what is folks? So to the veteran's families who I had include this flag of HONOR to their memorial it was not removed by me but by Find a grave. I am truely sorry that we can't show the image of our American Flag, that Veterans proudly served under, at half mask which is a sign of the quality of being thankful, appreciation for and to honor them.
I made the photo at the Jacksonville National Cemetery as the US Flag is at half mask Mon -Friday when a Veteran is laid to rest. No copywrite was broken as I am the owner of photo.

RE: James Thomas McClain
You Wrote:10-26-2012 Hey, Brent! I'm just curious about something. The MO death certificate shows burial in the Bloomfield Cemtery for James McLain. I am related to the McClain's and would really appreciate more information about him. You probably know more about this family than I, but let me know when you get a chance. Thanks a lot! Tom --- James Thomas McLain Find A Grave Memorial# 26497668 I put what I could find on his memorial. I am not sure if the Draper Cemetery is still out there or not, have been searching for it about 20 years now but I am getting closer - if you read the DC you will see it says burial in Bloomfield MO & the Draper Cemetery (I Belive) is South of the end of hwy AC 3/4 mile down CR RD 237 then east across field abt 200 yards to a woods lot - sorry it took so long - Brent

Arlie McWilliams
Ok Tom I did find his father and connected him.
Added by cjgriffith on Feb 28, 2014 5:37 PM
When you have a chance, please add the following family links for Arlie McWilliams:
Father: Arthur L. McWilliams 100292158
Mother: Julia Mae (Hilton) McWilliams 100292275
Thanks! Great work you are doing!

Tom I don't think this is going to be his parents. On the memorial it has listed as parents.
Rev AF McWilliams and Betty.

Also this Julia would have been 56 years old to of had Arlie. Which would be very unusual for any woman to have given birth.

I removed my Asbrey Tribble, however, I believe mine was an infant. I took my entries from an old list and put it on there long time ago, to have something there figuring people would send corrections.
Since I took it from a listing and not in person, I will go with what you said and I removed it but I believe this was an Infant born and died in 1889.
