My mom and I have been able to find some pictures of head stones on this site that we most likely would never have seen. It's helped us in my search of our family history. "Thank you".|
If we've made any mistakes or you have any suggestions for any of the ones that we've placed in here, please let us know.
If you'd like us to transfer a site over to you, just ask. As long as it's not someone that is a part of our family I will be glad to transfer.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for piecing together and photographing Anthony Myers's tombstone for me. I can see that it looks like 55y 2m 29d which enables me to calculate a birthdate for my 5th great grandfather. I really appreciate the help!

I see that you have photographed cemeteries in & around Pike & Lincoln Co's in MO. I am looking for a cemetery that is between Corso & Louisville called the Pioneer Uptegrove cemetery. Many of the relatives of those buried in Old & New Liberty are there. I have bee twice to look for it around that area but have had not luck. The best instructions I can find are on the attached link: http://www.mogenweb.org/lincoln/mocems/uptegrove.htm
Would you happen to have any idea where it might be? The uploads on Find A Grave from Mae Damron come directly from me, so she has not been there. Any assistance appreciated! Cynthia

|Tracey Crow||RE: Crows|
Hi, yes I'll manage the Crows. Thank you very much. Sorry to say I have not researched the Pritchetts yet. I only know a couple of things. Nancy married a Ripperdan and 3 of their sons located near where I live in California. I've been in touch with one of their descendants who lives in Southern California. Abraham K. Ripperdan Jr. has the largest monument in Acacia Cemetery. Memorial # 17836868.
Is is true that Prickett's Fort in West Virginia was built by some of our Pritchett family? thanks
|Tracey Crow||Crow's in Old Ashley|
Hi, Susan Pritchett Crow is my 3rd great-grandmother. In 1849 Susan's husband Walter went to California during the gold rush. He came back to Pike County, gathered up sons, in-laws and other men and drove cattle back to California. He died shortly after he reached California. My line is through Walter and Susan's son John B. Crow & Perthania Eastin; their son John B. Crow & Clara Braly (Clara's aunt was married to Alexander Majors of Pony Express fame}. Perthania died about a year after moving to California. John and his brothers founded Crows Landing in California. I wrote a book about our family titled Crow Family History which is available on Amazon. You can see some pages of it on that site. I was just at Old Ashley Cemetery and I saw that stones are being repaired and the cemetery is being taken care of, which I appreciate. It looks so much better than when I first saw it a few years ago. thanks
I will enter Eliza Ferry Morris. I'm not sure about the Ada thing. I'll keep looking. Right now I'm going by late 1880s census. I haven't seen an Ada. there is an Ida F, but she's the daughter of John N., not a sister of his. Still working on that generation. Who knows. it's hard to tell that long ago.

|AKC||RE: Elizabeth Morris|
I appreciate it ! If you'd like to enter it, I would not be offended at all. If you don't, I think I would try what you suggested. It doesn't matter to me at all. I live in Texas, and have only been to Elsberry 3 x in my entire life. I have family in Elberry cem, Watts cem (which is abandoned) and the Kemper cem. (also abandoned). I don't anticipate going back up there any time in the near future. Create one if you like, and link it up to her spouse. just let me know. I'll have to get back into ancestry to even see where I was on that.
