Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been a way of life since 1981. I would especially like to thank all those photo volunteers who have shown such kindness to my family and myself. I have received so much support from numerous individuals, thru the years, that it is time to give back as a volunteer. Since most of my family ties are in the midwest or east of the Mississippi River, photos are often difficult for me.

For those in the Newton County, Missouri area, please ask for a transfer, if I manage your direct relatives. I am more than happy to update information or transfer pages to family members. But as a reminder, I do have relatives there also.

To provide information or request a transfer, please use the "Suggest A Correction" (SAC) link, located on the Edit Tab (upper right corner) of the page in question. Using this procedure will send a message to my email that includes links to both the memorial page as well as your Contributor ID so I'll be sure to update or transfer the correct page. Don't forget to specify your relationship! It may or may not fall within the guidelines of Find A Grave.

“Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.”

Hi! I'm just wondering if you have found a death record for this person. So far I haven't been able to find one, though I did find her husbands DC.

Deborah, I think I might have accidentally submitted an obit for George Nevepor Gilstrap on Levi Gilstrap's site. My apologies if I did. Thanks for all of the work that you do.
Sincerely, Randy Scott (H2Ofowlhunter)

Many Thanks

Just wanted to thank you for the Ball transfer. I really appreciate it and thanks for maintaining them in this cemetery in the first place. Your time and kindness is appreciated.

Again, thanks,

Her site needs some correction. It has her married to two Jeremiah Gilstraps when in fact she was only wed to the younger one. Her daughter Sarah has the wrong Jeremiah as her father. Am a member of the extended Gilstrap family and have worked on family history for awhile. Thanks for the work you do, I know it's time consuming,

I apologize. When I sent the original message to you ( and my latest response), I thought that I had replied on his memorial. I will look up Jody's memorial and send you that number and Harold's as well.

Jody's siblings
Greetings and blessings to you and your family. I grew up with Jody and his sister Edna and his brother in law Harold V Williams on Rt. 4, Springfield, Mo.
They were like family to me. I was then. 10-12 yr old girl. Who was fortunate to have known them.
Kindly and lovingly they took on to me and my family like we were kin. I will always love them for that.
Please add his sister, Edna May Bluejacket Holden Williams and her husband, Harold V Williams to Jody's profile so that their connection will be documented in Find A Grave.
Thank you so much.

RE: William Sanders

So sorry ! My mistake. One of those late nights switching between cemeteries. You are correct. We have some memorials switched between our IOOF and Granby Cemetery.
Sons of the Confedercy are going to set two stones and I was trying to link them together . You do such a good job on all your memorials that I feel terrible about my oversight.

I sent you an e-mail with contact info of cemetery so that you can provide plot info, which is a must-have in this huge cemetery. Thanks.
