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 they can be accessed online and take up room for pictures of the individual. (Missouri death certificates thru 1963 can be viewed free of charge at, you can also print a copy)
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: Montgomery family plot
Thank you for your info. But I actually already knew all of that. Every year we come to Mo and my dad and I go to the cemeterys. I have been to the spring creek church when I was younger and visited those graves. I wish I had taken a picture. My dad told me there were lots of unmarked graves there down the hill from the church but I can't confirm that. I was under the impression they only moved the markers not the bodies. I was also told that the church knew of family members but did not contact them before removing them. Let's just say we aren't happy about it. We visit the graves every year I just neglected to take a picture this year because my phone died. If it doesn't get done I'll do it next time I'm there. Again thank you for your help.

RE: Earl E. Graham
Great! I would appreciate a picture. I was also able to inform Find A Grave, due to your find of Earl E. Graham, that there was a death date for Jesse D. Until then, there was no date for her death nor Earl's. Quite a "Find". Again, I really appreciate your help. Just wish you were able to help with some ancestors in Kentucky! By the way, I live in Noblesville, a suburb of Indianapolis but to the north. I am researching my father's line, the Vaughans, and Jesse D's mother was a Vaughan

RE: Wayne Brooks
Kathy, Thanks for the information, we didn't realize Dollie and Wayne had another daughter. The one we knew about was Susan "Suzie". We thought she had gotten married, but had not seen a name for her husband. Thanks again, Juanita

RE: Dollie Brooks
Kathy, I would be happy to take over Dollie and Wayne's sites. We did not realize that their daughter had passed away too. Could you give me the information for her grave too. My Find A Grave# 47451761. Thank you so much for the information.

Sorry, I normally added the photo to both names on the stone when I add photos. I must have missed this one, but it is taken care of now.

RE: Hill's
Thank you so much, Kathy!! That helps me out quite a bit. I think I told you I'm just barely starting to get into family history--I know a lot about the dead people I knew, but this is my first real foray into territory unknown. Thank you once again!
