Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired MSG US Army. Got the genealogy bug in 2010 after my eldest brother passed away. A huge gap of unknown Wood ancestors was my primary obstacle to surmount. Was fortunate enough to trace the Wood line back to the late 1700's in Erie Co., N.Y. beginning with Great (x 3) Grandfather Augustus B. Wood Sr. who had 9 children. I have been able to trace all nine of them, his son Francis Burton Wood is my (direct line) Great-Great Grandfather. Francis' son John Perry Wood is my Great Grandfather and his son Frank McKinley Wood my grandfather.
Had a good start with my mom's family (Gardner) and have been able to take it from there thanks to the assistance of so many great people within the FindAGrave community. The four primary families I research are Wood, Gardner, Gentry, and Clare. Also researching additional ancestorial lines from the families of Rew, Braman/Brayman, Crockett, DeWitt, Slaven, Perry, Mecham, Pierce, Allen, McCumber, Merkel, Patrick, Eastman, Hopson, Jarvis, and Lawson.
As far as transfers go I am happy to transfer any memorial that is not in my family tree. I am not overly concerned with only 4 generations or specific relations. Find a Grave has evolved over time and will continue to do so. Until or if ever they come to the realization that these memorials belong to everyone then I will do as I feel necessary to assist those in need of making connections with ancestors. As for photos, use them to your hearts content with all my blessing.

His mother was born in June of 1911 as well. I will check in at the office against his DD214, but he seemed to keep this going on his Washington marrage cert too.

RE: 71021995 John Drake Crockett
I am in Jefferson City MO today doing research. I am finding tons of information. John died with no will. First date 8 Feb 1837 states he's deceased already. Final will lists all his children including my 3rd great grandfather Elijah Franklin Crockett to be John son. Everyone leaving him out, and I now hAve proof he belongs to this family. There's another John Drake Crockett 1780-1839, think that's where it's messed up. They even have our John line as his. Thank you

RE: Bessie and Peter Dougekos
They may have the date of death. Certainly they would know the day she was buried. Their phone number is 734-421-6120. If you are a relative, they may give you additional information. As I am not a relative, I am uncomfortable asking them for more information than I already have.

Athanasios Dougekos
(George A Dougekos's father, based on someone's family tree) I asked at Parkview if they had any other Dougekos graves, other than the two you just requested and the one I already photographed, and they said Athan Dougekos was buried in Block Z1-Adult, Row 27, Grave 10. I went out there this morning, and found a headstone that I think (because it's written in Greek) is Athanasios Dougekos. If you would like, I can send you the photo. Or if you want to create a memorial, I can add it. Perhaps it is him. All the writing is Greek, and although it appears to have a day and year, there is no month of birth or death (unless it's written in Greek). Let me know. I looked for Bessie and Peter, but I need to recheck the location next week. They were supposed to be in Graves 1 & 2, but there was no headstone for 1, and someone else in 2, so maybe I wrote down the wrong lot.

RE: Clyde Wilson Jr
You are welcome. I also added a pic of Margaret Hannah Wilson. Born 5/24/1936 and died 7/31/1937.

She is buried next to Ione Wilson. She may also be a child that she lost.

Photo Request for Samuel R. Farrell # 108629885
We are presently working on identifying burials in Mount Olive Cemetery. We have identified Samuel R. Farrell's grave as one of those.

Cemetery records indicate he was buried in Lot 128A, New Addition. The entire Block 128 was purchased by his wife Lula Gertrude (Bowerman) Farrell's mother in 1919. Lulu's parents, Silas Bowerman and Ellen (McNemee) Bowerman are buried in that block, as are other family members, some with and some without stones.

Lula's grave is marked with a stone. Samuel's is not.

NOTE: Samuel Ferrell, Lulu (Bowerman) Farrell, Silas Bowerman and Ellen (McNemee) Bowerman all died at hospitals in St. Joseph, Buchanan County, MO., so all of their death certificates can be found online - just google Missouri Death Certificates.

Hello Ross,

According to his death certificate, Chester is buried in Enola Cemetery. I have added a photo of his headstone from the Enola Cemetery.

Best regards,

RE: Nan Barclay Young Smith 148291159
I have noticed from census data that the women become younger and the men older.

One relative claimed he was born in 1850. However, on the 1860 census he was one year old! Many disappointed cousins who had bragged that great-grandfather died at age 98!

Another female had four different years of birth on her social security application - each later than the one before for a difference of 6 years in age from the first year of birth to her final year of birth! All but one year of birth was scratched through. I laughed a lot when I opened that envelope!
