Bio and Links
I am a native of Southern California. I dabbled in family research back in the 1980's but was young and it didn't mean much to me back then, now I regret that attitude.

I have started my family research again and am looking for my maternal side of LANDORF, COPI, SPRINGBORN, BRANDT, HOZNAR.

On my paternal side I'm looking for WEBER, BELL, MEFFORD & MURPHY.

Like most people I have gone as far back as to their immigration but run into brick walls when it comes to foreign research.

Jerry Bell
Hey Dawn

Not sure if you got the reported problem for Jerry Bell, stating he was cremated there but not intered there.

So you might want to withdraw your request for him.

John Mefford Photo Request
Dawn, I uploaded a picture of the Mefford Family Plot. According to the registry, John should be buried under the tall stone. Se the caption with the photo for more information.

You wrote:
"Birth year 1880 as he gave per his WWI Draft Registration and he is on 1880 census so could not have been born 1881."

Don't you think I realize this.

The date on the memorial MATCHES his grave marker.

From F/G Q&A:
Additionally, biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower.

Have requested F/G remove yours.

Alice B. Mefford Richardson Haines
Dawn, In a roundabout way, I got involved with the Mefford's again. In your recent photo request for Dallas Mefford's marker you noticed Charles' marker, which we created a memorial for. In the next lot east of Charles' site, I found Alice B. Mefford's (mem#150211203) grave site while doing other research. She was first married to a Amos Richardson and then to a Oscar M. Haines and she's buried between the two. I can't seem to find the burial location for the parents, Thomas and Hulda Mefford and it would be good if links could be made for the family. If you are related somehow I would be glad to transfer the Mefford memorials I've created to you. Fred

Thanks for the info on the duplicate - until the memorial listed for Jarvis Mefford added the plot information I could not tell if it was a duplicate.

RE: Englewood Cemetery
My error! When I looked at Laurel Oak I had counted a Masko Medford (see mem# 113864921) with the Meffords. As it turns out that is a duplicate with Masko Mefford (see mem# 31343484). I think the bio for Dallas Mefford pretty much confirms Dallas and Charley were brothers and it seems that an Alice B. may possibly have been a twin to Dallas. An 1860 Owen Co., KY census shows there was another sibling named Sallie L. Mefford. Good luck with your Mefford searches.

RE: Englewood Cemetery
You're welcome! I've created a memorial for the other stone seen in photo for Dallas and included a photo of the marker (Charles Adams Mefford 1849-1921, mem#150003956). The other Mefford found in Englewood is a Chekotah M. Miles Mefford 1934-1956 daughter of Ernest & Ida Mae Miles. She's buried in a different lot from Dallas & Charles and I haven't been to see if there's a marker for her yet. I've not been able to find a spousal connection for her as of yet either. Also found there are ten Mefford's buried in the Laurel Oak Cemetery, Windsor, Henry Co., MO.

RE: James & Caroline Bell
Hi Dawn,
Good luck finding your Bells. Many years ago I started out trying to find a Jane (Bell) Vance, my gg-grandmother. There were MANY MANY Jane Bells. Fortunately, my cousin knew a little about the family and had a biography of Jane's brother, James Bell. She had a Federal Census record showing Jane's daughter, Cynthia, living with her Bell grandparents in 1870. Her mother had died a few years before during or shortly after child birth. Bingo. That started me on the right track to finding the right family. After 10 years plus of research I finished a book about the family with almost 800 pages. So, don't give up. Just keep searching.
