Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family surnames I am currently researching: WININGER/WINEGAR, THORN/THORNE, POULSON, McINTYRE, SANDERS, BRANSON, BARNES, MILLS, CHAPPELL, MACY, PRICE, LANDERS, TUCKER, RENO, GREGOROSKI/GREGOSKI/GREGORSKI/GRZEGOZEWSKI, HARVILL, PARKER, COLLINGS, BROCK, WEAVER and SHEPHERD.

I am continuing research on a particular bit of the history of McDonald County, Missouri (sometimes called McDonald Territory) and have a page concerning their well-known attempt to secede from the State of Missouri, in 1961. (See the link given below.) Thank you to the then-Governor Orval Faubus of Arkansas who graciously offered to accept McDonald County into the State of Arkansas. "After all," he said, "it would offset the "bootheel." Oddly enough, to this day, McDonald County, although in Missouri, remains as a part of the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers Federal Metropolitan Statistical Area. To me, the incident provided a fascinating story, which tied in to another interest: philately and cover collecting (local posts).

Current number of pending "EDITS": 720 (As of 23 NOV 2014)

Thank you to those who have checked and processed your edits!

If you have your message function blocked which prevents anyone from contacting you, and don't have an email address or some way to contact you, I will likely delete your message. Also, submitting 'proof' by saying that a previous memorial existing with different spelling, with no photos of the marker to verify, or anything else to say why your source is more accurate than mine - is not a reason for me to delete an entry I made five minutes earlier. I have no reason to doubt the survey/source that I took the research time to locate. If there is a photo, that's one thing.

I looked at both of their names but could not find a link, have you ever used the web site " Family Search.org " it is great it gives census records from the 1800s up to the 1950s then some current info like addresses and death dates gives all family members in the house at the time of the census.

Hello Wes,

Thank you for asking about the headstone of Lishe Helwick Norton, last November. Her name is properly spelled NORTON.

Many thanks,
Dee

RE: Mary and Robert PATTESON in Oklahoma
Agree about the mistake being perpetuated. When I mowed the rows I found many named Patteson and one named Pattison. Haven't checked SSDI on it yet. I also found two different spellings on a persons stone and VA marker. In that case I usually go by the VA marker. I guess after 20K pictures I've see it all. NOT!!!

Thanks

Dennis

Guess I had missed it. So sorry Wes. I am at a total loss of memory of this one. Please advise me of my error and I do make them. Thanks.
