Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello.

My name is Lisa, and I have been transcribing and photographing cemeteries for about 14 years now. Thanks to a Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness volunteer, I found this site. Finally! A place to put my work.

I record cemeteries to help preserve a record of our long, lost loved ones. At a cemetery, years ago, I noticed that several of the 'older' stones would soon be unreadable. I thought that it would be sad if at some point, that person couldn't be found when a genealogist came looking for them.

I don't think that they should be forgotten. I enjoy knowing that I can help someone locate that special 'someone' that they have been looking for. Or, to help them see their loved one's final resting place.

I am only human, and I make my fair share of mistakes. So, if you find an error, please email me, and I will do my best to correct it.

If you have information that you think needs to be added to a memorial, or if it needs to be updated, I will do my best to help out. I will not be bothered in the slightest if you want to add photos to the memorial.

Happy Hunting!

From Find A Grave FAQ:
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Bulk surname requests should not be made.

For Transfer requests & correction please use the "suggest correction" feature to submit.
Please do not use my message page for request.
Be sure to include your member ID # and the memorial ID #, as well as how you are related to the individual).


{{{I RECORD ALL THE STONES IN A CEMETERY. THERE ARE STONE MARKERS THAT HAVE LIVING PEOPLE ON THEM. SUCH AS: ONLY ONE SPOUSE HAS PASSED AWAY OR SOMEONE PURCHASED THE STONE IN ADVANCE, ALONG WITH THEIR PLOT.

IF THERE IS NOT A DEATH DATE, THERE ARE MANY EXPLANATIONS:

* THEY ARE NOT DECEASED
* THE DEATH DATE WAS NOT PUT ON THE STONE AFTER THEY PASSED
* THEY REMARRIED AND WERE NOT BURIED WITH THIS PARTICULAR SPOUSE
* THEY MOVED AND WERE BURIED ELSEWHERE
* THEY PASSED AWAY WITH NO LIVING RELATIVES OR FRIENDS TO PASS ON THEIR BURIAL WISHES

AND MANY MORE.}}}

Would you please transfer this memorial to me. Stella Jane Dennis Miller is my Aunt. She needs to be with the Dennis family. Her father was Thomas I. Dennis and her mother was Ada Lunsford. I have asked before. This needs to be done.

Thank you for Ada's memorial. No one told me about her death. I am her first cousin and talked to her for the past few years. I would never have know about her death.

Evelyn Mayton memorial #28272260
You posted Evelyn Mayton memorial #28272260 death date as 2001. Evelyn died May 22, 2017. Using the edit tab on her memorial I changed her death date to May 22, 2017. Following is her obituary.

Funeral services for Evelyn Martha Mayton, 92, Willow Springs, Missouri, will be held at 2:00 p.m., Thursday, May 25, 2017 at Westside Family Life Center, Willow Springs, Missouri, under the direction of Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.

Mrs. Mayton passed away at 1:26 p.m., Monday, May 22, 2017 at Willow Care Nursing Home.

She was born May 9, 1925, in Douglas County, Missouri, to James Collins and Mallissia Davis Collins. Before her retirement, Mrs. Mayton worked at Conway Shoe Factory. She loved to play cards with family and enjoyed playing shuffle board. Mrs. Mayton was a devoted mother and grandmother; family was very important to her.

She is survived by one daughter, Wanda Wood and husband, Lee; one daughter-in-law, Melissa Sillyman; one son-in-law, James Worley; twenty-six grandchildren; forty-seven great-grandchildren; twenty-nine great-great-grandchildren; one brother, Dillard Collins; one sister-in-law, Kay Collins; and several nieces and nephews.

Her parents, seven sons and daughters, Judy Bunch and husband, Leon, Kenny Collins, Connie Fray and husband, Raymond, Linda Brixey and husband, Kenneth, Lynn “Bim” Collins and wife, Carolyn, Michael Collins and Vickey Worley, four brothers and two sisters, precede her in death.

Mrs. Mayton will lie in state from 5:00 until 9:00 p.m., Wednesday, at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home. Burial will be in the Pine Grove Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and may be left at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.

I have updated the page for Valeria in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, and sent a copy of the updated page to the cemetery office for their files.

Thank you for the edits you sent.

Thank you for replying. My great grandmother, Laura Rebecca Cole, was married to Joseph Sim Thomas, the son of Sarah Morris. So she is not direct blood related, but still she is related.

No Lisa I have not deleted mine. If you want to delete yours at the Mt Zion Cemetery at Olden that would be fine. Hope you had a Merry Christmas and will enjoy many blessings in the New Year. Kathy

Sarah Moris Thomas FAG #22039932
Would it be convenient for you to take another photo of the grave marker for Sarah "Sally" Morris Thomas Find A Grave Memorial# 22039932? The date of death listed on Find A Grave says 1884, but her youngest son was born in 1886 according to his death certificate. I would just like to verify the year on her grave marker. I can see "1 8 8".
