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: Carroll Thomas
Is this S & J Pendleton? Can you read the last number in the birth date? I may have to go down and see if I can do anything to read that any better.

BTW, Thanks so much!

Kathy, THANK YOU for providing this great headstone photo for this little girl's memorial. Her middle name is the same as my mother's and she died the month and day of my birth (not year).
Blessings to you for all you do,

RE: J.A. and Addie Truex
Thank you, Kathy. I can no longer see Find A Grave images. I get only an icon. Would you have any idea why?

RE: Riley infant at Ledbetter Cemetery
What do you suggest that I do? Put a note on them, or delete them? If I delete them, someone will create more at some point. I would appreciate your opinion. Thanks Kathy.

Thanks, Yes he's my Great Uncle. my Mother's Mother's Brother. I'll be happy to take over the memorial. I try to connect Find a Grave to my Family tree as much as I can.

RE: Spencer baby at Ledbetter
Hi Kathy;
I did some research and can't come up with anything on these babies; too bad there are no names to go by.
There is no mention of any loss of babies by Famous and Pearl in the family history I have.
Sorry I could not help.
Bless you!
