Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors and they themselves fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Indian Wars,the War for Texas Independence, the Civil War on both sides and World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.
Donít violate copyright.
This may be the most difficult one to adhere to. You must be careful where you take information from, and how you use it. While facts (such as dates and places of birth, marriage, and death) are not copyrightable, the words used to convey that information are. Do not directly copy text but use your own words. Even more important are images. Remember that copyright currently lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator. All those family photographs in your possession? Copyright belongs to the person who took the photograph, and to his/her heirs. The key date at the moment is 1944. By Michael J. Leclerc (Prof. genealogist)

Dugan research by Julian Dantzler Kelly
I told you wrong. I did go thru the papers I had re Newberry County, and tossed almost all -- but, I just discovered, *not* the piece on Dugans. It was just too good to toss. I will send you a copy, just let me know an address.

Col. Thomas Dugan
Hi Bonnie,

Thanks for your note re Col. Thomas Dugan. I'm so sorry I no longer have the xerox from the book from which I typed in the quote re T.Dugan. I was clearing out paper copies of stuff acquired years ago, while trying to put all the relevant data from them online somewhere. Alas the piece by J.D. Kelly that I quoted does not seem to exist online, but the quote I gave was all he had on the Dugan subject. The Dugans are discussed in "Annals of Newberry," which IS online at

Best regards!

Bonnie, I'm trying to understand how you determined that Rebecca was the mother of Sophia Wilson. Karen

Rebecca Wilson/ Dice Cemetery
Bonnie, Rebecca was my gr-gr-grandmother and Allen my great grandfather. I'm curious to know how you are connecting the people other than Allen as her children. In the 1950's Allen's youngest child Angie May Wilson Jones related the family history to her daughter. According to Angie, Allen died after a head injury and per Rebecca she was the last of her family, except for Allen's children. His oldest child John William was named after Allen's father.
Hope to hear from you. Karen

RE: Thomas English
Hi,Thanks for contacting me and I apologize for the lateness (due to serious happenings in the last few years).

My English family line were in Missour for many years, and my great great grandmother English remarried, after her husband, Abner C.Kinnison passed, to a Mr. Wolfe and started another family. They moved to Red River Co., Texas.

Hope this might help you.

Hello Bonnie,

Thank you so much for asking for documentation on your memorials!! I've had requests for linking a brother and sister as spouses. They both died around age 5!

TB Willis

I have this on my page:


Many errors are occurring on memorials due to inaccurate "Edits." Please provide a primary source (such as a book, will, obituary, birth/marriage/death certificate, or family Bible record) for any changes on these memorials. Linking or changing a memorial will be done only when a verifiable primary source is provided.
