Bio and Links
Bio Photo I want all of my fellow Find A Gravers that I give my permission to copy any gravestones or family pictures from my Memorial's. I don't put Memorials, information and photo's in for the glory or recognition but to honor those who have gone before and for the families of these people.

This is to let everyone know I have never stolen any pictures from anyone and will not. There is a find a graver on here that has consistently tried to get me in trouble with FAG and is always adding negative messages. I don't know why she is doing this but other FAGers have had the same problems with her trying to police other's Memorials. I have requested that this Person not add anything to my Memorials.

Parents of Martha Jane Boggess Fisher
My research shows that Martha's parent were actually W.H. Boggess and Susan Anna Adkins. I found her death certificate online which matches the dates on the headstone. Her last name was "Young" at the time of her death because she remarried after her first husband Charles H. Fisher (my great great grandfather) passed away. But, she was buried with Charles.

Thanks! Somer Sutton

Searching for Williams history
I am apparently a great-grandson of Walter Sidney Williams, son of Lafayette (Lafe/Lafatte) Williams and Effie E Watson. Looking for more names and dates for both the Watson side (She was born in Maries County) and the Williams side (Silvy's death certficate said he was born in Crawford County. I wasn't aware of the son Silvy. I knew about Frank, Walter, Oscar and Albert. My Dad (Darrell Williams, son of Walter) didn't know much by the time we were questioning him, and implied there was something mysterious/scandalous. (That could have been covering for lack of rememberance due to dementia.)

I live in Washington State, so at this point am limited to Internet research and mailed records requests.

I would happily accept any information you can point me to.

Hi Marsha!
I found Jack and Nancy have a (photoed) memorial at Memorial Gardens, perhaps a mausoleum. This explains why I couldn't find Nancy Glenn (Mrs. Monroe). You have a very nice memorial in Hillcrest. I just found Nancy's parents in Sedalia and will link them to her at Memorial Gardens.
'Don't know what you usually do in cases like this; but they are where they thought they should be.
Hope things are OK there.

Did you see the episode of "Who Do You Think You Are?" with Jessica Biel.
The episode shows Miller County, MO Historical Society's museum and genealogy room. I wrote another article on the museum here:
There is a nice genealogy library and also a website with lots of information.

Sechrest Family Cemetery
Hi Marsha,
I found the information we needed. I added the phantom Sechrest to the cemetery and transferred him to you. While visiting again, a man came over from his home west of the cemetery to ask what I was doing. After explaining, he told me of 4 stones he had at his home he was repairing. I posted those photos on Find A Grave as well. All the repair at the cemetery is his. 17 years ago, he canvased the cemetery, dug out, repaired and up-righted EVERY stone. One stone he has is in such devastating shape, it is beyond recognition. THAT stone is probably the one we need a photo of. Hope this help.

Williams Family
Oh Marsha!
Have you identified your Williams family?
I was browsing your Williams' and saw the name Musick & my heart stopped. I've been working in NC and in Edgefield (SC) and am convinced that is where I will determine my gggg grand parents. Many of my identifying families are there, in the 1790 census: Neal Osburn, Tutt, Spence, Harrison. Their springboard was Granville county NC and before that, Spotsylvania county VA. Many people attach them to the Hendersons of Augusta/Louise; but that doesn't work. It is Jael & William Williams. (She later married a Harrison.)

I'm very pleased for you. Altho my ancestor was in SC during the R. War, I cannot relate him to Col/Gen James Williams. I often see the Musicks. I asked Brent to send his DNA to the Williams Project. They don't have enough participation to be helpful, as yet.

RE: Drapers
Marsha, you don't say how you are related to Frank Draper, if at all. I don't know what you are looking for regarding this Frank Draper. Frank is shown in the home of George and Mary Chamness in the 1900 and 1910 census records. George W. Chamness married Mrs. Mary F. Draper (a widow) in 1894. If this is correct, then his father would be William Franklin Draper, and his mother is Mary Francis Carter. His parents married in 1891 in Union County IL. Portrait photos for William and Mary are online at in public family trees. William Franklin Draper (1855-1892) is listed as buried in Hurricane Cemetery in Carterville, IL. Find A Grave Memorial# 24604234. Benjamin Franklin (Frank) Draper shows his birth location as Carterville IL on his WW1 draft record. I do not have any special knowledge of the Draper family. My lineage is Chamness/Cooksey/Boles from southern Williamson County, not far from Creal Springs. I just found the Draper info in 45 minutes of searching on Best Regards, Greg.
