Bio and Links
Bio Photo My direct lineages include Collins, Cunningham, Hopkins and Robinson. My husband's families are Franks, Morgan, Reid, Taylor. I was born and continue to live in Howell County, MO.
I always do additional research for death certificates or have found the person's obit in
the archived newspapers at the public library before I suggest an edit to the creator of the memorial.
If I have entered your relative and you would like a transfer of their memorial, please send me a request. I have no desire to "own" a large number of memorials, I just want people to be able to find their relatives resting places. If you see a mistake I have made, or would like some addtional information added, just let me know, I will warn you that I probably will transfer the memorial to you if you have an interest in it. Please do not add obit information in flower section. You may send the information you would like added using the message option, edit link or email with correct information, I will respond to all. If you will refer to FAQ's you will notice that find a grave states that names of living relatives are not to be added to a memorial without their permission and it is for that reason that I do not copy obits as they appear in newspaper publications.
I would prefer that copies of the death certificate not be added to memorials I have created as they can be accessed online and take up room for pictures of the individual. (Missouri death certificates thru 1964 can be viewed free of charge at, you can also print a copy)

I have added some relatives that I have knowledge of but don't know where they are buried. If you have informaion of any of these, please let me know.

RE: Robinson's at Union Grove
Remember when you sent me this?;
1. Baby girl Robinson-She is buried in the fifth row from the fence. Other Robinson's buried near her are Alma, George, Lillie Belle, then the Baby, and then Howard Robinson. I have not found a death certificate for her.

Amazing thing happened....I was going through some old papers the other day (sorting through stuff from moving) and found my father's birth certificate which was not "created" until 1969 due to the fact he was not named at birth (???) anyway, there in the place where it says "birth order" he was named as 4th child of George & Jennie!!! and there are only 3 living....maybe this girl baby is George & Jennie's, especially since it is in the same burial area? Never heard of this before. Is there someone you can ask, i.e. Darlene? Darlene, if she could remember, would have been in the know as her mother-in-law was Jennie's sister...hopefully.

RE: John Wade
Kathy; LOVE you new photo!
Would love to see Darlene again; did I tell you I named my oldest daughter, Jill Darlene, after her? It has been a long time since I have seen her and so sad that she no longer has Johnny.
How especially lucky to have you there to check out all the family info. I looked at the Oklahoma location and wish I had known that before I left for Florida.....I would have checked for a headstone. Did you happen to see the headstone I was able to obtain for Jennie Robinson in Hominy, OK?
Is there a way you can go to the Union Grove cemetery and talk to someone who would know why John Wade is listed there? I don't imagine Coleah would know? I tried to find a phone number for both cemeteries (MO & OK) without any luck.
Blessings to you,

RE: Pendleton child at Union Grove
None of our family can help on this. We have a FB page with dozens of members, from this family line, and no one can seem to help on this. Thank you for letting me know on this. I will keep looking, and let you know if I can get any farther on this. Thanks so much, for all of your hard work.

RE: Roberta (Hopkins) Moody
I found Roberta Moody, date of birth 1/17/1920 on social security death index showing 7/18/2008 as date of death, in West Plains, MO; however, I cannot find a obituary. Still, I think you could be safe in creating a memorial for her and linking to Leland.
Let me know if you need anything!

RE: Irene Moody
Hi, Kathy;
I think her obit and headstone gave her name as Irene as that is what she went by but her first name was Louvenia according to 2 books by the family historian and it keeps in line with all the kids being named names that begin with "L" :)
Either way, I can see why she preferred "Irene"!

RE: Gladis Nova Robinson
Kathy; I appreciate the info on this memorial that Coleah manages; I was able to leave a "teddy bear" on her memorial. It can be confusing when people are called by their middle names :) i.e. my parents.
Blessings to you,

RE: James and Millesa Robinson
HI! Good to hear from you.
I see Kristy Fox has memorials for them with Millesa being 54605518 and linked to James.
I will check my books and if I find anything additional, will let you know.
Take care and keep up the good work!
