Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in northwest Missouri with some of my various family lines being some of the earliest settlers not only in northwest Missouri, but also in Missouri as early as the early 1820's.

I have one son who is presently serving our country in the United States Marine Corps. And yes, I am one very proud MOM.

I've been doing genealogy for over 30 years. Some of surnames I am researching include three different Williams lines, Butner, Hagey, Criss/Crist, Hedrick/Headrick, Swope, Brockman, Tanner, Archer, Bridgeman, Groom & Grooms, Ogle, Brannick, Anders, Barringer, just to name a few.

RE: Carrie Hagey #137284071
Unfortunately I don't know anything more. (I've photographed thousands of memorials in that cemetery.)
Wishing you a rewarding journey,

I will have to go to the cemetery and get another picture. I know right where it is, just a matter of getting over there. I will keep you posted.

RE: John W Taylor, #38893647 IVH Cem
Not sure if she is buried there or not. I do know that all of the internment for the IVH cemetery have been entered into Find A Grave.

The IVH should have records. You may want to contact them.

Meyers & Myers cemeteries, Bates Co., MO
I believe that it is Meyers Cemetery that was also called Pleasant Grove Cemetery. Myers Cemetery is a different Cemetery. There are many mix-ups with Bates County, Missouri cemetery records. Cameron Herrell is the local authority.

Here is some more information ---

---- Cameron Herrell has photographed many Bates County, Missouri cemeteries, including Meyers and Myers. Some of the records have been published incorrectly. The Bates County, Missouri cemetery records found through the Ancestry Card Catalog contain errors and the Poplar Heights Farm website is full of errors of every sort.

This is part of an earlier message (early in 2015) from Cameron Herrell. ------- If you noticed, they (on Ancestry) list a lot of those as Cak Hill Cemetery instead of Oak Hill Cemetery. Yes, I knew about the Double Branch - Oak Hill mess up. That's why I photo'd each cemetery completely. It took me 6 months on Oak Hill. Just last week, the head volunteer of the genealogy department at the local library told me that when the Mormons walked the cemeteries back in 1980, when they did book compilation, they got the 2 Myers - Meyers Cemeteries mixed. And both of them are in Hudson Township, one in section 6 and one in section 35. The Meyers Cemetery was once called Pleasant Grove Cemetery. We will be photoing those cemeteries before long.
Thanks again!


message from Cameron Herrell received this month ---

. . . - when I took the pictures of each of those cemeteries, I came across some that were listed in the wrong one. These names are all listed on page 69 of the Bates County Cemeteries Book for Myers Cemetery, Hudson Twp, Bates. Line #130:
William Hedrick, Elizabeth Hedrick, Nancy Tomes, Thomas H. Hedrick, and Sanford L. Hedrick. Also, the pictures I took are in the Myers Cemetery List, pictures #315 & #316. They're definitely not at Rockville.

Nancy Hedrick Tomes
Thank you for your reply and for the additional information, which I believe is all correct. --- Depending upon how her name was pronounced and what the census taker heard, her surname may have been recorded with a different spelling. Thoms or Thomas are two possibilities.

William Hedrick # 81599387
Hi, This question is about a photo you posted on the above memorial in Bates County, Missouri. You have captioned the cemetery area photo with the grave locations and list Nancy Hedrick Tomes. ---- I have not been able to locate Nancy in census reports or family information on Ancestry, but she is entered in the Myers Cemetery as both Nancy Tomes Hedrick and also Nancy Tomes. Was she a daughter of William and Elizabeth (nee Hall) Hedrick ?

----- There is confusion between the Meyers Cemetery and the Myers Cemetery in Bates County, Missouri. These are different cemeteries, but are often confused and records are mixed-up and sometimes published incorrectly. These Hedrick memorials are now entered in the correct cemetery, which is Myers Cemetery. However, Nancy Tomes Hedrick was entered from a DAR record, which I believe should be Nancy (nee Hedrick) Tomes.

You can send a message to me through this memorial.

Vurl Roberts
About your request for pics of Vurl Roberts' grave. I found his grave today. His wife Virginia's name is on the gravestone too with no death date, born 1923. I assuming she is still alive then.
There is a gravestone next to Vurl that says Bob W. Roberts 1962-1974, son and brother.
I am assuming this was Vurl and Virginia's son.
I looked in the paper and could not find even so much as a death notice for him.
He has never been added to Find A Grave by anyone as yet. Do you want to do that?
The Oregon death index says he died March 6, 1974 in Marion County.

William Claude Roberts
You put in a request for pictures of William Claude Roberts' grave here in Portland, OR.
He is buried next to his wife Hattie.
Could you do me a favor and put in a request for pics of her grave too?

Hattie's Find A Grave #= 95173923

I just noticed that Hattie's maiden name was McComas. Her parent's are buried there right near where she is buried. Somebody added her parent's to Find A Grave, Albert and Elsie McComas. Would you like pics of their graves too?
I went to grade school with a Troy McComas in Canby, Oregon. He moved away about 8th grade if I remember right? I am 66 now.

We added the death info and calculated his birth from the inscription. Also have a closeup of the inscription you can almost read that I will add. The sun was directly behind the monument.
