Bio Photo Just because you can add a death certificate to a memorial page, does not mean that you should.

When leaving a virtual flower, please do not leave any on my pages that MOVE AROUND. I feel that they detract from the person's memorial page and draw the attention to YOU.

If I am not related or have any special relationship with the loved one, then I will transfer.I especially am grateful for those folks who are the photo volunteers.

Manless Pt.2
To expand a bit on the slave distribution. One of my regular correspondents is a descendant of that family. 1838 is the year they first pop up in MO.

In deference to your concerns I'm going to draft a short comment to add to the notes section. Will send a draft to you first for a review.

Have you been in contact with Ellie? I don't recall her thinking on this subject and haven't written to her in some time.

Manless (Manuel) Dyson
Based on the available secondary sources Manless' birthplace is unclear. Some census records give NC and some MO. His death certificate gives Franklin Co, which is more likely if he was born in MO. Maries Co would be out as it wasn't formed until several years after his birth. I've based my thinking on a preponderance of material but a few things stand out. The distribution of the slaves from Barton Dyson's estate took place in Sept 1836 and it clear that William was present. (Among other things the slaves went to MO with the family.) In addition there is a reference in Absalom's papers to Manless 'going home' to NC in 1862 or 1863 (I don't have my copies at hand.) Finally I'm also compelled to go with the information given to me by my grandmother (Frank's daughter), her sister Mary and brother Everett. Manless lived with them most of their lives until his death. They would all have known him while they were in their teens and they all stated (without prompting or being questioned together) that he was the 'last one' born in NC. All my opinion but, I believe, supportable. Look forward to hearing your thoughts. Cliff

Hi Barbara, but am not related either. Am doing this for someone else. This all started by me. All because of two twin Bowles boys that died in the 1870's in Cambria, California. Then a lady that was related had notified me regarding these two boys, so I just decided to link them as far as I can take them. So once am done, that we'll be it . I really appreciate you asking me, thanks anyway.
Have fun hunting, Werner

Ada Hoober Prater 80742763
you are absolutely correct. The dc does show HooVer as Ada's Maiden name. The KC hospital clerk recorded it incorrectly. It should be HooBer. Ada is a 1st cousin 2x removed so your Daniel Prater relative makes us share that connection. I have Daniels lineage back only to include his parents but if you don't have would be happy to share. Daniel it seems, had 9 siblings!! WOW

You are requested a change on the above memorial from HooBer to HooVer. Can you share with me your findings that prove this change to be correct?

Thank you!!

Hi Barbara,

Happy 2017 to you and yours! Good to hear from you.

I definitely do remember watching Corky the Clown on TV when I was a kid. I also remember Clif St. James from his days as the weather guy on Channel 5. Neat that you were able to put him on Find A Grave.

There was another St. Louis celeb who passed away this year that I put on Find A Grave. I submitted him as a famous person, but he didn't get any votes. You may not have known him since he spent more time in the Overland/St. Ann part of the county, but he was on the news fairly often and was at a lot of Cardinal games. We used to see him around town all the time. Take a look at #171688546 when you get a chance.

Thanks for sharing the memorial you created for good old Corky.
