Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in St. Louis, but my parents moved to Cape Girardeau, Missouri when I was two days old and then to Graves County Kentucky when I was 9 months old.(My parents lived and worked at Paradise Friendly Home from 1966-1969) I now live in Dexter, Missouri.
I am the oldest son of the comedian Dennis Crutchfield and Margaret Douthitt (now Gilbert) and have one brother, David, who lives in Lexington, Kentucky.
In April of 2000, I became the youngest elected Alderman in Dexter, Missouri and the second youngest Alderman to ever sit on the Council. (the youngest was appointed, not elected) I also became the first Alderman to be of Native American Descent(I'm 1/8 Cherokee) the first to have a wife of Hispanic descent, and the first elected Republican from my Ward. I was reelected on April 2nd, 2002. I lost in 2004, but was elected again in 2006.
I have been interested in cemeteries since I was a kid and it always bothered my parents who called it a "morbid hobby". It has paid off now, since cemeteries have helped my knowledge of History. Now when I visit a city and find out that they have a cemetery (or cemteries) with famous graves, I go out of my way to see them (and get pictures for Find-a-grave if they are not already posted). I am a cashier at the Wal-Mart in Cape Girardeau, Mo. In October of 2015, I published my first novel, Spirit and Image. It is available on Amazon.
I am married to the former Tracy Randel (she was adopted when she was nine years old. Her birth father was Puerto Rican and her mother was of German descent), who, sadly, was in an accident in August 2010 and has been in a coma since then. I have one step-son, Darrin. No transfer requests please. I've run into too many problems with them.

Tim: Just read your "bio" and found it very interesting. Yes I have been called weird or the "Cemetery lady" but I love this hobby and really feel it helps others connect with their family. I did just that - your memorial pages for A Loyd Cox and Maud Cox connected to: Their daughter, Sina Kaiser, who is buried here in Cape Girardeau.

thank you for all you are doing for this website and I have seen your name several times.

L. Marie Leininger tombstone
When Marie died, her daughter took her ashes back to Missouri and had them placed in the grave. We also had the date of death inscribed. The new photo shows the correct dates so you might want to remove the old photo. Thanks

john lowrie, 1792-1837
Hello Tim,
I noticed that you have included John Lowrie, JR. in the siblings list for Walter Hoge Lowrie.
I have seen this in other places but am wondering if you have any sort of documentation showing that relationship or showing what the last name of his wife, Sarah, was ?
I can trace my family back to my great grandfather RObert Lowrie, 1827-1881 but cannot establish his parentage.
I believe he was a son of John's;since John and Sarah both died when Robert was abt 10, the number of children in the 1830 and 1840 censuses indicate that John's sister Mary and husband Andrew McCaslin took he and his sister in then, July 4 (John died) and Dec 30 1837 (Sarah) died.
Thank you for whatever you may be able help with.
Sincerely, Jackie Lowrie

RE: Sue REEVES Trosper
Tim, I don't know know where she is buried. It's hard to find out anything about her. She died about 1994-5. I believe when she died she had been married to a EATON. Must be in the Dexter-Poplar Bluff, maybe Advance area.

The edit information that I sent providing his parents was obtained from his father's memorial -William Newton Feazel #43164781; it lists the children.

Thank you, Tim. I really appreciate - and I forget stuff all the time. I can usually get away with it except at the card table!!

Hi Tim, Your photo of the cemetery she is buried in is on her memorial. Sorry I didn't make that clear. I need your permission to use the photo of the cemetery. If you don't wish to grant it, that's okay. I don't mind and I will understand.
