Trying to help preserve the memory of my father and my ancestors. He died while I was a baby and I can find nothing about him other than this grave pic. im just trying to keep him going on forever with the love and respect he deserved...
My sources are pretty much what appears on a memorial. I have a list of burials for the La Plata cemetery compiled by my mom's first cousin (now deceased) who use to help with the upkeep of the cemetery. I believe she used several sources, including stone inscriptions, obituaries and cemetery records that had been compiled in previous years. Old obituaries come from a collection of the La Plata Home Press papers done by another lady from the La Plata, Missouri area (also deceased). I also use Missouri Death certificates for some memorials that can be found online and are free. I have history books and census records for this area of Missouri, as well.
Yes, I would be happy to include any additional info. that you would be willing to share. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.
RE: Huffman Family In La Plata Cem... After receiving your message I went back to check some of the memorials I had created and I think I may have corrected some of the errors. I had Alice Irene (Cronkite) Huffman's maiden name wrong. I found her obituary and have changed her maiden name from Clark to Cronkite. Also made a couple of links on other Huffman memorials in the La Plata cemetery. Hope this helps. Let me know (by using the edit tab on a memorial) if there is anything else I need to change or links that need made. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.
RE: Huffman Family In La Plata Cem... Sorry that you are finding some errors on the memorials I have for the Huffman family. If you will go to the memorial and click on the "Edit" tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial and type in the correct info. or links I will be happy to correct it.
Most of what I have comes from cemetery records (compiled from the inscriptions on the stones in 1999) & obituaries but I look forward to receiving any suggestions from you that will correct any errors.
