Bio and Links
Bio Photo My great, great grandfather inspired my interest in genealogy with all the information he passed down through the family. How I wish I could have met him. He was a very sentimental fellow, recording many family events, happy and sad. To have lost 5 of his 10 children before they reached the age of 23 must have had a significant impact in his life. He wrote poems about his children and a tribute to his wife after she died.

I have always liked visiting cemeteries and have been to many coast to coast but didn't take pictures until I discovered FAG. What a wonderful place to make a memorial for our loved ones and also help others find their ancestors burial places!

Please Transfer...
Good morning Joan.

Please refer to my previous posts and your answers.

I would be sooo happy and forever indebted to you if I could lovingly care for our 2nd-Great-Grandfather and our 3rd-Great-Grandparents. It has been a very long journey for my mother (now deceased) and me to find these special people.

Thank you for your work in helping us, and countless others, tear down our "brick walls". You are much appreciated.

RE: William Hampton Cantwell
Hello Joan

Thank you for answering my post. Most importantly, I would like to care for three of my direct line:




There are others, but I will try contacting you through your listed e-mail address.

Thank you soooo very much. I am thrilled to become the caregiver of our beloved family.

Hello Joan.

Thank you for transferring the care of my 2-Great-Grandmother, Sarah Ann "Sallie" Murry Cantwell Carter. I am thrilled and appreciative of your effecting the transfer. Thank you.

Is my 2-Great-Grandfather forthcoming? WILLIAM HAMPTON CANTWELL Find A Grave# 20121503

Are you related to CANTWELL, MURRY, or GREEN families buried in Helton Cemetery or have you lovingly recorded all who are buried there regardless of personal relationship? I laud that you are caring for so many of my dear ones. Thank you for your tireless work.

If ever you wish to share the responsibility of caring for my direct line of CANTWELL, MURRY, and GREEN loved ones, please let me know. My 3-Great-Grandparents and 4-Great Grandparents are buried in Helton. I know one is not to necessarily have "ownership" of all one's family, but I thought I'd ask anyway. My grandmother, mother, and I have spent countless years researching the Cantwell, Murry, and Greens. I have become the keeper of many stories, photographs, and ephemera related to their lives. I have huge Civil War portraits of several of the men, plus tin-types and other photos of Cantwell, Murry, and Green women and children, some of which I have shared on Ancestry and Find-A-Grave.

Again, dear lady, thank you for transferring.

RE: samuel r campbell
Dear Joan,
Thank you for your reply. I am still curious about James or Gaines Campbell. It seems he could be a possible brother to Samuel R Campbell. Was there any stone for either of those names in Union Cemetery?

I was looking for the Find A Grave for Samuel G Campbell and realized that one of the pictures posted is for Samuel R Campbell, who died 16 Dec 1886. Do you know if this the father of Samuel G Campbell?

Thank you,
Kay Cloyes

Correction to previous message.
I mistakenly stated in my previous message that the Bailey/Elliston Cemetery was in Section 13 of Richland Township when that is incorrect. It is actually located in "Section 2" of Richland Township, Macon County, MO. Sorry for my mistake. I read the wrong paragraph in the history book for La Plata. The Baity/Shores Cemetery is located in Section 13!

Oops, I found it!
Oops, I found the Bailey/Elliston Cemetery mentioned in a history book for La Plata, Missouri. The cemetery is located in Section 13 of Richland Township, Macon County, MO. Only four stones were found to exists in 2005.
