|Darlene||Bertha Holman grave photo|
You have posted a grave photo of Bertha Holman to the memorial for Richard Andrew Holman (89531240). You also posted Bertha's grave photo to her memorial. Would you please remove her grave photo from the Richard Holman memorial?
Understood that when you are doing so many, it's easy to make an occasional error. Thanks for all the great photos.

|Heather Cramer||Sudduth Family Cemetery|
First, thank you so much for documenting the Sudduth Cemetery in Marion County, MO! Through finding the gravestone of Mary (wife of William Ross) born Sudduth, I was able to take that clue and eventually piece together that branch of my family tree. I now realize that Mary is resting with several of her sisters. Her memorial is # 89250085. I'd request a link to her parents but can't seem to find them, sadly. My question: where is this cemetery actually located? Is it on someone's private land? I'd love to visit and check to see if her parents (Francis Sudduth and Mary (Musick) Sudduth) and/or her husband could perhaps be there as well. Again, thank you SO much for all your efforts.

|Baxter B. Fite III||RE: Vivian Howell|
Dear KQB, First of all, U want to Thanks You again for all of the GREAT work you have done for Find A Grave. I really believe that what we are doing will be appreciated long after we are gone.
Second, I want to Thank You for kind comments about my work. I love writing about veterans. Our veterans, peacetime and wartime alike, have given up or were asked to give up what should have been some of the best times of their lives. They made sacrifices that none veterans, like myself, will never fully understand and can't imagine going through what some of they went through. If you have never read the poem WHEN THE BOYS IN BLUE ARE GONE, try to find it. It was written by a Civil War veteran in his waning years and expressed his concern about who would tell the civil war veterans story after they were all gone. I love telling their story and will continue to do so until the day I die.
Finally, I want to Thank You for your willingness to transfer memorials. Some people don't feel what I do is appropriate for Find A Grave and that this is not what Find A Grave was intended for. I feel the Creators would not of set up Find A Grave with options they didn't want used. EVERYBODY HAS A STORY and I love telling it if I know it. I am going to add what I can to the Memorials you were gracious enough to transfer to me and then I will transfer them on to the granddaughter I am working with. I have transferred several memorials that I set up for her family and she has already done some GREAT work with them.
Thanks again for all you have done, for what you have done for me and for all you will yet do for Find A Grave. It is and always will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Sincerely, Baxter
and your willingness

I wish I could help, a suggestion would be to contact the Monroe County Historical society in Paris, Mo., or the library there.
The little dixie library in Moberly Mo., has a really good genealogy room.
That's the only ones I know of.

|Cardsfan23||RE: Parker-Darr Cemetery|
Thank you so much for your prompt response. I've always heard it called Parker Cemetery or Parker Burial Grounds and I do know where what is left of it is. It is actually just a few miles from my home and I have looked in every library & other source trying to find a survey of the cemetery but have had no luck. Here is what I know of it.
It unfortunately is located on private ground & one of the previous owners basically destroyed it - he knocked all the tombstones down and threw them in a big ditch on the property. I won't even TRY to convey my VERY STRONG DISGUST about that. A subsequent owner found the stones & brought the stones that were still intact up to the spot where the cemetery WAS located, which was known only by a few corner fenceposts still there. I learned of this & heard that there were a few stones with my surname on them & went out there for the first time in the early 90's I think. I took pictures of some of the stones, but I have not been able to find those. I did discover some of my ancestors there which really is what got me started in my Genealogy quest. I went back out there approximately 10 years ago and recorded all of the Headstones that are still there but I didn't have a good camera at that time, so I recorded the transcriptions of every stone I found. I just recently went back out there with an iphone & ipod to take pictures of what I could find. Unfortunately mother nature & the weather had overgrown most of the stones which are laying flat now. I located all of the stones I had previously recorded, but by that time it was near the end of the day and lighting was bad as well as the fact that the stones were pretty dirty. I only got a handful of pics. Yes that was me that just posted a few of those pics(so far). When it is a little nicer out I will go back and carefully clean the stones(water & soft brush ONLY)and get better pics of all of them. I am in the process of trying to figure out WHO these people are and possibly who they are related to so I can post memorials for them. Unfortunately I did not find stones for any of the names you posted memorials for. A lot of these are children who died young, and so I'm trying to figure out who those parents are which is difficult because a lot of times its just the initials & last names of the parents. I WILL get memorials posted for all of the stones I have found as soon as the weather cooperates and I can get to it. If you will send me your email in a separate message I will record it and then delete the message immediately for protection. Then I can send you the names & dates of the stones I have so you can peruse them to see if any of them are in your family tree. I really enjoy this stuff and only wish I had more time to devote to this wonderful hobby (obsession?). Thanks again for your prompt response.

I noticed that you added the majority of memorials in this Cemetery. I was just wondering what your source is. I have never come across any burial records although I wish I could find some. I've been told that years ago there were a number of headstones in the cemetery, but they were lost or destroyed by a previous land owner. Maybe you are related to these people and in your family records? I would appreciate any leads you might be able to give me. Thank you for your time.

|Lyn McDaniel||RE: Barger & activity|
I didn’t know you were related, too, so no need to transfer her. Doesn’t matter to me who “owns” the memorials as long as they’re right and connected to their family. I have corresponded with Carolyn Bremmer in years past, and probably sent her the Barger info that you posted. Contact me off-board and I can eMail you a couple of pictures you would want of Henry Potterfield and of the Wadsworth family. My yahoo address is LLMCD2005.
I had the Wadsworth family Bible until it was stolen around 1971. I grew up in Hannibal. Have you been to the “Forman Burying Ground?” Some of our people are supposed to be there.

I’m sorry you’ve had such a bad time that you’re backing off. I get tired of leeches, too. If you’re still checking this site at all, I’d appreciate it if you’d transfer Susannah Barger 80916261 my great-grandmother to me. I posted her son years ago. My ID is 47472091. Thanks.

|Bridget Fox||Bridget o'neil collins|
Would you happen to remember where you were able to get this information? We have been to the cemetery and were unable to find a grave marker. After speaking with Jerre at the cemetery, he said there was probably not a headstone if a picture was not available. Any information would be wonderful.
Appreciate all your hard work.

We are doing some geneology and see that a Bridget O'Neil Collins is buried in St Joseph Cemetary in Palmyra. We thing this may be my dad's great grandmother. What information do you have on this person? We went to the cemetary and could not find a grave and to the library and looked for the obituary on microfiche but could not find anything. We did not go to the church to look at their records. We will try that next visit. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for putting his memorial back to only what is on the stone. After more research of probate and wills, I think Martha was his aunt, not his mom, so it is good that you declined that edit. If I ever find absolute proof that his father is John More Lear (buried in the same cemetery), I will send an edit including the proof. Thanks for your quick response.

Thank you so much for the added info for Nettie Ellen Couch McCrorey #114007262. Always glad to get new info. I am not related to Nettie but I help out the Shelby County Historical Society with adding information either from newspapers or death certificates. If at anytime I have a memorial that maybe of your family please let me know and I will transfer them to you. It is great when we can all work together for future generations to learn about their families. Thank you so much for all you do for FindAGrave! It is very much appreciate by so many.
