RE: Must have been a typing error on this one.
You are welcome!! Been there, done that--still have fingers that "do their own thing!!" LOL

I have had a little time to just sit and do nothing but watch TV for a while, worked some on my laptop. Went to Candy Murray Phillips visitation tonight. Don't know if you are acquainted with her or her husband Tom, they lived at La Plata. She was in my sister's class and they went to college and shared living accommodations through those years with some of their other friends and one of her brothers was in my brothers class from 6th grade through high school--known the Murray's for many years. It seems like the good are dying younger and younger!! :-(

Know what you mean about mowing--one of many chores that keeps one busy!!!

"Line"--was hoping that it was not going through your farm after all--glad you are probably not going to have to deal with that now!! YAY!!!!!

I know I think I'm always busy with grand kids and cooking a noon meal for 4 men week days, but I think you've got me beat with all you do to help with the farming--YOU take care and take a few minutes now and then to "sit a spell!" :-)

RE: Annie FOX - Memorial # 19428417
Hello again,

My typing Annie's name when I meant Cassie (Barbara Catherine) was just a mistake. Sorry about that.

I will be very interested to see what I can find out when I get home. If the 1st husband was not Annie's father, it opens up a whole can of worms about something that my deceased sister-in-law spoke of fairly often some years ago.

This dear sister-in-law of mine would sometimes get things into her head that were incorrect and then dwell on them. Several of these incorrect things are things that I have been able to prove were indeed incorrect.

She was convinced, however, that Annie's father was an employer of Cassie's when she was doing housework for a family in Kirksville, MO; and that, therefore, Annie would have been considered illegitimate.

On the other hand, I am in touch with some of Cassie's 1st husband's direct descendants who are convinced that she was indeed the child of the 1st husband, Willaim M. BROYLES.

We have intrigue here!

RE: Annie FOX - Memorial # 19428417
Hello again, Farm Girl.

First, let me say that the information I have is from Annie's daughter, Mary Catherine (Fox) Kohler, who was my mother-in-law.

Secondly, I had no idea of the year of Annie's divorce from her first husband.

Frustratingly, I am not at our home right now, so cannot check more thoroughly. But, I am thinking that I found something to corroborate the information the information that I received from my mother-in-law.

I sure hope I can remember to check; because if you are correct, I certainly need to change a lot of information in my database.

Thanks for your quick response,

Annie FOX - Memorial # 19428417

I would enjoy knowing why you show my husband's grandmother's maiden name as MILLER.

Annie was the child of William M. BROYLES, who was her mother's first husband.

Please let me know where you found her maiden name as MILLER.

A transfer is fine with me. I don't know how to do it so you'll have to do it yourself or tell me how. It's not about who has the memorial under their name it's about having the correct information for family and loved ones. Carmen

RE: I'm still a little confused on this one.
Thanks for that information. I hadn't traced the county boundary line changes. I know that there was a lot of changing boundaries and creation of new counties as the population grew. Glad to know that Thomas and John were brothers.

It's too bad we don't have grave stones to help us with the dates, etc.

Do you have record of a William Murphy?

RE: I'm still a little confused on this one.
I had found Thomas, Benjamin and also John and William Murphy in the 1840 census for Macon County. There are land records for Benjamin (1841) and William (1843). Artilda is her correct name, according to family records. She was born in Kentucky, according to the census, so I have been trying to find a Murphy family who moved from Kentucky to Macon County. I see that some of your Murphys later lived in Randolph and Adair Counties, which are adjacent to Macon. I have found a Thomas Murphy in Kentucky in 1830 census -- and many Williams who were there at the same time.
I am descended from James and Artilda Robuck's daughter, Martha. I believe that Artilda died in Macon County. James remarried and moved to Fulton County, Arkansas, where his daughter, Martha, and her family moved also. She had married John Seney in Macon County.

Benjamin Murphy's father
Do you think that the Thomas Murphy, living in Macon County, MO. in 1840, is the father of Benjamin? His age would be about right. I have an ancestor, Artilda Murphy, who married in Macon County in 1844. I'm trying to find her father and thought that he might be a possibility (there was a female in his household of about the right age), but you don't show that name as a sibling of Benjamin. There was a Benjamin Murphy living near Thomas Murphy in 1840 in Macon County.

RE: Denton
thanks anyway. I thought maybe the cemetery records had some info. I noticed a memorial in LaPlata cemetery that says they don't have a stone. In those cases how do you know they are buried there?

Do you have record of John B. Denton buried at Gibbs Union? He would have been born to Richard and Julia Denton in about 1869, but does not appear on any records after that. So I believe he died as a child before the next census. Julia was my GGGrandmother and I am trying to get the records straight. Thanks

RE: Please update the bio. on this memorial.
Hi Marla,

Thanks for informing me of updates to Sarah (Warren) Stegall's memorial #5411963. I have deleted the two notations about her son, Ambrose and daughter Sarah Jane.

Good luck with getting Find-a-Grave on the duplicates in Humiston Cemetery. It seems to take forever to get a response from them since the owner sold or gave the website to Ancestry.

Good to hear from you and know you are still active in genealogy.

Take care,

Seamon Atterbery: Yes that is a picture but it is unreadable and I am hoping that a larger picture would make it easier to read. If you can do this I would appreciate it very much.

Nancy Jane Murphy Dodson Memorial
You have provided and excerpt of the memorial of my Great, Great Great Grandmother. I could not find a reference. Do you by any chance have a copy of the newspaper article this was in that you can send to me. I am referring to this:

-Mrs. Isom B. Dodson, widow of the late Major Dodson, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. R. Blunt at Palisades, Colo., Friday night, June 7, and the body will be brought to Kirksville Tuesday evening at 8:15 o'clock for burial. Funeral services were held at the home of her granddaughter, Miss Georgia M. Smith, 305 West Normal Avenue, Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock and burial took place in Forest Park Cemetery. Rev. R. W. Lilley of the Christian church, conducted the services.
---Mrs. Dodson was 91 years old. She came to Adair county when she was a young woman and was well and favorably known. She left here several years ago to make her home with Mrs. Blunt. She leaves the following children: Mrs. J. R. Blunt, Palisade, Colo., D. R. Dodson, east of Kirksville, Attorney J. B. Dodson, of Los Angeles, Cal., Mrs. Fanny Tufts of Okenah, Okla., S. A. D. Murphy of this city is a half brother.

Kenneth Leo Smithson burial space
In the plot photo I posted for Kenneth and for George J Kruse, they are both buried in the same space but are next to Mayme Smithson, not William.

George was cremated, so he would be directly next to his inscription headstone.

Kenneth may or may not have had a casket per se, but because he was an infant he was buried in the same space as George, but further back, away from the joint Smithson headstone.

Two-in-one spaces for ashes/infants is not unusual in this cemetery. One way to utilize space but not have to pay for a whole plot in cases like this. I have access to certain cemetery notes to identify the burial spaces. The plot view photo shows the burials in their proper locations. Without a headstone Kenneth's precise location is somewhat of a guess, but he and George are sort of in a row/space just for them.

Lucretia Alice Chadwick, Memorial #69217202, is not buried in the Saunders Family Cemetery. I visited this cemetery and have a copy of the 1980's transcription and she is not there. She is buried in a cemetery in Fleming Co. that has many with the sir name Fawn in it, although I don't know the name. Please make this correction, as not to confuse others. Thank you

You have posted the correct birthdate for Jemima Dodson daughter of John Randall Dodson, but this Jemima did not marry George Washington Gholson with the two children you have listed. Jemima Dodson who married George Washington Gholson was the daughter of James Randall Dodson.
