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
Hi, Kathy;
Good to hear from you!
No, I am sorry I have no idea who the baby is and I cannot find anything in my family history books on either her or anyone named Gladis/Gladys.
I wish I could help; will keep it in mind and let you know if I run across anything.

RE: Pendleton child at Union Grove
No, off hand, I don't who that is. I will do some research, to see if I can find out. I will also post your comment on our descendant line, to see what they think.

Thank you for taking the time to go back and look at the other headstone. More than likely, that is the child of Benjamin Thomas. I will also get back with you on that also.

Bless you for all of your help!

RE: Toney, Lee and Jennie Tombstone pictures
Hi Kathy,

Thank you for the Toney tombstone photos. I see you were able to upload them to

I now have copies of your photos in my TONEY genealogy notebook. Thank you ever so much for your time and the very nice photography.

I live in Texas and Lee and Jennie Toney were my husband's grandparents. Their son William married my husband's mother and they later divorced after WWII. When his mom remarried, his then step- dad adopted my husband and changed his last name to Archer. Because of that, I doubt I could every interest him in stopping at Oak Lawn for photos even if we every get to MO. But, this is my children's bloodline and I want them to have this information.

Thanks again for your contribution and help.

RE: Hardin memorials at Mt Zion
That's great. Thank you. I haven't been there since 2000. I want to go back and visit again soon. Greene, Howell and Oregon Counties are loaded with my relatives' graves.
