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.
I would prefer that copies of the death certificate not be added to memorials I have created as I have found them to contain incorrect information. Dates and the location of burial are frequently incorrect.
If you think it is necessary to add a picture of the memorial card from the funeral or death certificate, please use OTHER option so it does not push the picture of gravestone or of the person off page. (If you will refer to FAQ page you will notice that names of living relatives are not to be added to memorials without family consent.)
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: Virgil Hill

Margaret's parents are indeed the right ones! This is actually my first real find. We had partial names, but no dates. I know you guys are dealing with ice storms and more snow than we have in Utah, so this information is great so far. Thank you so much for your help!!

I was afraid there would be no marker. Thank you for all the photos you take and the many steps you take across the grave yards

I have his 1936 death register record from the Lutheran church he attended in Winona County and others of children he and Amelia had between 1890 and 1897 who didn't survive.

Emelia/Amelia Witt Schumacher
1900 Federal Census Identified Fred and Amelia Shoemaker in Sisson Twp Howell County MO with four of their surviving children. Those children were all born in Winona County MN. Friedrich August (or August Friedrich) and the children returned to Minnesota after his first spouse's death. He remarried and had three more children who all lived to adulthood. Amelia is my first cousin 3 times removed. Your findagrave entry was found by another genealogy relative who continues to reside in Winona County.

I'm so sorry it's taken so long to respond. I have MS and it keeps me from doing all I'd like too in a day at times.

I leave many flowers, so I doubt I knew Becky or your family. If you remind me of her Find A Grave# though I will do what I can to see that her son(s) are connected to her memorial, along with any other relatives I can find.

Is her husband connected?

Otherwise, good luck! Happy graving!

RE: Burk Hopkins
No problem, just noticed difference on stone and thouget it was typo. Know what you mean about spelling. My great grand mother's stone was ordered by a tinker when he went to a big town and it was returned to her husband with Jamason spelled Jemmison. Guess he spelled it the way her Irish husband made it sound.
