Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Yakima, WA. I've been pursuing family history seriously for almost 30 years -- almost as long as I've been married to my wonderful husband. He is not so much into genealogy, but is a good sport about my "addiction", even to the point of helping me look for relatives in cemeteries when we travel. I love meeting cousins, too.

Main family names: Boone, Mayfield, Short, Tate, Savage, Hughes, Graham, Slater.

Mr & Mrs EC Francis
Thank you for the information about Ephraim & Jennie Francis! After reading your messages and seeing them in the 1920 census in Craig, I think you're spot on!! Very much appreciated

Re: Eliza Ashinhurst
I really don't know, however, I do know that a lot of people with stones like that were actually buried in another cemetery, then "moved" when they made the Lake of the Ozarks. There are a ton of these stones in Shawnee Cemetery representing those people. Lots of them just say unknown. So sad. :-( I would bet it was probably Elzie, but when they made the stone, they thought it was Eliza? I will make a note of it in the bio. If I change it, someone else may come along and make another memorial with Eliza on it.

Jewitt cemetery
I was in the scott county clerk office this morning. They stated that All cemeteries in the county are not owned by anyone, and must a right of way. That said I fully understand joining land owners don't want any poor conduct or misdeeds going on on their property,

Looking at Jewitt Cem the satellite it looks as if it is located at the back of a house?

We live in Pike co IL about 13 miles from Young Cem.

Looking on that hard to read homemade stone I wished we had taken more time to read it.

the next cem we are planning to work is Kincade, however a drive by of Jewitt is probably a good idea. will put Jewitt on our list

RE: John A. Mayfield
Thank you Doy for your request. It caused me to find that I hadn't connected this photo to Johnny Alva Mayfield in my tree. I have his dates as b. 25 Dec 1881, Barton Co. MO and d. 14 Sep 1882, Barton Co. MO. I will request that these dates be added to his Find A Grave memorial. Also, some of your cousins have started a closed group on Facebook, "Mayfield Family Genealogy" and we would love for you to join us. Deanna

Re: Infant burial
Greenlawn-Portsmouth Times paper was dated "Published 1883".? I was looking for a relative "Miller" of mine at that date 1883 and copied all of the lists of burials for everyone I found for that date. "I didn't find mine".

RE: William J. Mayfield

I am not that good. In this case, I use Ancestry .com and looked up his wife and there was a hint about the Fifteenth Infantry. It had to be the Civil War. (I am a retired Soldier who likes military history, so it was obvious to me.) So, I just Googled " 'William J. Mayfield' Fifteenth" and up popped a book about his unit, and there was all the information in a book "The Battle Rages Higher".

I live in KY; the battle was very important. It was a tactical draw, but it kept Kentucky, a slave state, in the Union.

Last note. I found William H. Mayfield's Findagrave memorial in Missouri and sent a request to link him to his parents.

Hi again, I did more more quick research and added a memorial for her husband (Union soldier killed at the Battle of Perryville) and a son wounded there.
