I am a member of Perche Baptist Church, Clark, MO, and doing history research on the church for an upcoming fall celebration. I am trying to get a picture of all our pastors. I believe Mr. Wright was our pastor in 1893. Is there any way you could verify that or do you have a picture of him. Maybe suggest someone to talk to? Thank you for your time.

Found them took some digging and a lot of sweet talking to the funeral home but we found them. The last name is actually spelled in their records and on the tombstone is FISCHER.

Mary Elizabeth Hayward Sternberger (1863 - 1958)*
hi Tom queation pls Mary Elizabeth Hayward Sternberger (1863 - 1958)* linked as wife of Eli M Wheeler who to my knowledge was never married.. And if you have a record of that would love to know about it. Only time would be after 1800 to his death 1887.

I find no marriage for him and always shows up single in census records, plus he was in the Civil War and have found no record of a wife's pension.

One more question Eli M Wheeler is son of James and Emily Morris Wheeler and had a brother Drury Wheeler. In 1880 census he lived with his COUSIN who I thought was his brother Drury N Wheeler......question pls where is Elis brother Drury Wheeler as it seems Drury N Wheeler married to Frances Long is a cousin and who is the cousins parents?

Lots of thanks if you can tell me!

#68284819 Betty Lou Herndon McGavrock

Betty Lou's parents are John Gregory Herndon and Lucy Mitchell Strange Herndon, who happen to be my great great grandparents and who are also buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. She was a sister to John Henry Herndon, also buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
Betty Lou served as one of Missouri's national delegates to the Republican National Convention in 1944.

Any chance I could get this listing transferred to me, since she is family to me?

RE: Webster BLackwell 1904-1910
4-8-1910, page 7 in the Chariton Courier Newspaper has a short note under Howard County news about this little boys death. It reads, "Webster, little son of John D. Blackwell of Fayette, died of appendicitis in a St. Louis hospital Thursday." I am not related, just reading this paper gathering more info on my own family. The Chariton Courier is available online on the Library Of Congress site "Chronicling America" Historic American Newspapers.

Do you want obituaries put on your memorials? I have one for S A Allen. If you want a copy or want me to type it in for you I will. Thanks for taking pictures and adding memorials. My grandparents had a funeral home and grandma cut out many obituaries. I have a notebook full of them, lot of history.

Birth Gus Howelman
Please remove my private email to you from your listing and change the birthplace of Gus Howelman, (Mt. Pleasant Cem. New Franklin) in your information on his page. He was born, as I told you, at Warren County, not Montgomery as one obit has it and not Jackson county as your listing has indicated. The family lived at Pinckney, Warren Co. Mo. when he was born in 1879. I like the Finda Grave memory of my Grandfather but want his information correct for researchers and family who make see it. Thanks for your help.

Gus Howelman #67991594
I wrote you some time ago to tell you that Gus Howelman was my Grandfather and that he was not born at Blue Springs in Jackson County or at Big Springs in Montgomery County, as his obituary in the Jefferson City Tribune indicates. He was born at Warren County, Pinckney, Mo. On the 1880 Warren County Census, he is listed with his parent and was an infant. Shortly after 1880, the family moved to Montgomery County, where Gus grew up and where his siblings were born. You posted my email to you, but did not change the information in your original listing. As it is, with my letter posted and your information, folks doing research will still wonder, where he was born. I have seen his birth record at St. John's Church in Warren County and the 1880 Census record; so I can verify, he was born at Warren Co. Mo. Please will you remove my email, which was to you personally and change the information on your entry to state his birth was as Warren Co. Mo. Thanks for your help and all you do to remember our ancestors.

I saw a memorial that you had added 32072795. It was for a William Hudnall Jones, he is the husband of my 2nd great aunt. I have been trying to locate this cemetery and can't seem to find it. Would you possibly remember where it is? His wife Georgiana Major Jones was said to be buried in this cemetery as well.
Thanks in advance

Elizabeth Brown Worton Wharton
Memorial # 8811027

hi - I read your message about adding death certs on your memorials and I feel the same way. However, Elizabeth's name is misspelled on her headstone and it took me quite a while to get the mystery solved and find her death cert. So, I added her death cert to show and support the correct spelling of the name. I hope this is ok - if not, I can remove it.

Thanks for all your work in Find A Grave!

RE: Edward's obit
Yes, I think you are right and the obit was printed wrong. It should have said, Dover, Layfayette, MO

Edward's obit
His obit says born in Dover county, but that is wrong.
On ancestry and census it is Dover, Lafayette, IL.
When you add his obit to memorial, please fix that mistake. JD

Andrea Marie Gerlt

Andrea Marie Gerlt died Saturday (Aug. 18, 2007), as a result of injures suffered in an automobile accident. She was 18.

Born in Fayette, March 31, 1989, she was the daughter of Robert and Ronda Mercer Gerlt.

She grew up in Fayette and was educated in the Fayette Public Schools, graduating this last May with the Class of 2007. During her high school years she was an active member of Spanish Club and of the Family and Consumer Science Leaders of America. She was voted by her senior classmates as being the prettiest member of the class and owning the nicest car. She was also awarded the Most Valuable Person award by her teacher, Mr. Oakley.

In her senior book, Andrea wrote that her greatest times were spent with her family, “sitting around telling stories about us when we were little and laughing about them.” In her graduation interview, she expressed her appreciation to her teachers and recalled her favorite high school memory, that of being selected Queen of the 2006 Barnwarming festivities.

She was currently an employee of C&R Supermarket in Fayette.

She is survived by her parents of the home; and by three sisters: Becky Bonuchi and her husband, Chris, of Higbee, Shelley Vogt and her husband, Dusty, and Natalie Gerlt, all of Fayette. Also surviving are her grandparents, Bob and Isabel Morris of Fayette; two nieces, Karisa Bonuchi and Aimee Vogt. Other survivors include her great aunt and uncle, Norma and Bill Brown, her sweethearts, Danny Nation and Nick McCulloch, a number of aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Faith Family Church in Fayette with the Rev. Harold Young officiating. Burial followed at Walnut Ridge Cemetery with Danny Nation, Bob Morris, Dusty Vogt, Chris Bonuchi, Mike Chew, and Warren Gerlt serving as pallbearers. Honorary pallbearers were Harold Morris and Donald Gerlt. The family received friends from 5 to 8 p.m. Monday at Faith Family.

Contributions may be made to the family for a memorial of their choice. Memorials may be directed to Friemonth-Freese Funeral Service, 174 Hwy. 5 & 240 N., Fayette, MO 65248.
