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: Lee Washington picture
I just saw your response. I am jumping through hoops today and tomorrow, but will get back to you by Thursday.

Lee Collins is my paternal grandfather. He had children by two, or more, wives. My father, Basil Odell Collins, was his child by his last wife Anthia Collins.

RE: Stehens memorials at Howell Valley Cemetery
Kathy: Do you also have the memorials for the following: Lynn and Lura Davis; Ora Lee Myers; Birdie Myers; Dale and Jane Ann Stephens; Lois and Ross Scott; all at Howell Valley Cemetery. If so, I would appreciate if you would also transfer them to me. I think someone else manages other family at Howell Valley. Many Thanks! Janice Collins

Picture on Billy Keith Cropper
Kathy, thanks so much for the beautiful pictures that you added to the tree for Billy Keith Cropper. It means the whole to me to have a picture rather than the blank space on his profile in the family tree.
