Bio and Links
Bio Photo I only post memorials for people to whom I am related by blood or marriage (with two exceptions, see below). I also maintain an site with information on my deceased relatives. I'm happy to share links to that site upon request from any relative.

Transfer requests will be honored for any memorials honoring any of person to whom I am collaterally related whenever the person making the request is more closely related to the decedent than I am. Please request transfers via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial transferred to you. Please include your relationship, along with your Find A Grave contributor number, along with the Find A Grave memorial number(s) for any memorial(s) you are requesting be transferred.

The "Suggest a Correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials even if you are not requesting transfer of maintenance. I would also appreciate any information which you could provide to update and/or correct the genealogical information contained on my genealogy website.

I have begun posting memorials for members of the 27th Indiana Volunteer Infantry Regiment when such memorials are not already posted. I will happily transfer those memorials to direct or close collateral descendants of those veterans.

I have also posted a few memorials for deceased members of my high school graduating class. Again, I will happily transfer those memorials to close family members of the deceased.

RE: John Autrey
My parents grew up in the St. Louis area. They moved to KY when they married and to VA when I was three. We have made several trips back to MO overe the years. Dad always mentioned Marble Hill but he would not have known the significance. His adopted Mother was a Bellchamber. Her father and brother worked for the railroad.

RE: John Autrey
Thank you for your help. I am excited to learn more about my father's family. With both parents dead by the age of 5, we lost a lot of family information. I use Family Search because it is free. I have an aunt who did a lot of research on my mother's family and I could easily attach to her information.

Do you know why John W Autrey and Janie Laughlin left Indiana for Missouri? I found hint, finally, that shows Eva (my grandmother) living in their home in Butler, Missouri in the 1910 census. Eva was 5 years old. Butler / Madison County Missouri is where she married my grandfather Virgil Lutes. His parents later lived in Alton, IL. He was a railroad laborer and it appears He and Eva when back and forth between St. Charles MO. and Alton, IL.

On the Lutes side of the family, I have a names of my great grandfather on a marriage license from 1865 and his father's name, but I have not been able to locate any further documentation. Thank you for your help. Both my parents are gone and I always told my dad I would solve the mysteries one day.

Autrey Relative
Interested in knowing if you have any information on Cynthia Davis Autrey's husband. Chris's son John is my Great Great Grandfather by his daughter Eva Emaline Autery Lutes. He husband is Virgil Ahmed Lutes. Their youngest living son is my father Robert (1938-2007) After both parents died, Robert was adopted by Rev. & Mrs. Owen H. Fisher who is referenced in Virgin's obituary.

W. Hightower

I fulfilled your photo request for W. Hightower. While doing so I noticed the VA has no Wilburn Hightower listed in the Memphis National Cemetery. They do have a William Hightower with the same death date. The headstone has W. Hightower and ALA. on it. So I'm sure that Wilburn and William are the same man. Maybe you should consider asking Find a Grave to combine the two memorial.

Semper Fi,

Your great uncle
I'm glad that you found that helpful. Of course I'm sorry for your loss.
I actually only discovered this site about 18 months ago when my mother died. She had mentioned that she had a gravesite reserved for her, but when she passed we found that we had to prove that her siblings had no claim on it. We knew that she was the only survivor of 8 children, the others were already buried but had no way to prove that until I found this site. The photos of their graves were sufficient proof for the burial to go as scheduled.
Since then I've tried to provide as many photos as I can.

RE: Cousins
I think you are right, we did communicate on Isaac Barks is my 3rd great-grandfather and I'm through David Barks side. I think I ask you if you had any record of Baby Ruth (b 1871) that went to live with Malinda (I think I have it spelled as Melinda which probably isn't right). I still don't have any info on her to prove what happened to her after she had to go live with her aunt. I have Barks pictures that mom doesn't know who they are. Some live in Oregon so if your branch went out there, let me know. They might help you by seeing their pictures. I think it's interesting to email knowing we are distant cousins.

I saw your request for Howard Reece at Russell Heights Cemetery in Jackson MO and fulfilled it today. Then when I went on the actual page, saw a picture taken already sometime back. Do you want me to delete mine since they are so similiar? Let me know.

Black River Cemetery
Gregory, you left 3 photo requests for the Black River Cemetery for 3 people that I found no headstones for in March of 2015 and had you post that information on their Memorials. If you feel that someone has placed headstones for them since then I will be glad to go look for them and take the pictures for you. Please let me know.
