RE: Sarah Cartwright Moore - Baxter Springs Cemetery
Debbie...that's terrific that you were able to confirm what city hall had told me many years ago. Will look forward to hearing from you after your visit and will be excited to see a photo...even a placement photo will mean so much!!!

Thanks so much...would love to have a copy of your map when you get it done (is anything in genealogy ever done???)! I've found 12 family members already at Baxter Springs Cemetery but am guessing that there are many more yet to be identified.

I do have another photo request pending for Baxter Springs Cemetery for Clarence Willard Cole born 2/9/18991 in Cherokee County KS - died 6/24/1939 (KS?) Pvt Med Dept WWI....assuming he maybe buried in a military section and hopefully with a military stone (Find A Grave 29753935). Would appreciate if possibly your map or your visit with the sexton in the next week or two could confirm that he is buried there and a photo if possible.

Clarence Willard Cole is the grandson of Sarah Elizabeth Cartwright Moore...son of Sarah Ann "Annie" Moore King Cole and Charles Wesley Cole (Charles Wesley Cole is Find A Grave 13547342 Plot E 0 26...but the memorial owner has him listed as Clarence W Cole by mistake...I've written a number of times but have not had any responses from the memorial contributor).

Again...thank you so much for your help!!!

RE: Sarah Moore
Debbie...thank you so much for your continued help in trying to locate my GG-Grandmother Sarah Elizabeth Cartwright Moore at the Baxter Springs Cemetery.

I am hoping that there is a marker, but that maybe asking too much...but possibly the information I received from the City is wrong or she was later moved. HOWEVER...below is some additional information that could possibly help.

I do know that Sarah's Death Affidavit and Petition for Administration was filed February 25, 1920 in Cherokee County, KS and heirs were noted as follows:

Living/or assumed to be living Children -
Anna Cole age 55 (Sarah Ann Moore King residing in Spring Valley in Cherokee County...note she was also the informant on Sarah's Death Certificate);

Addie L Smith age 49 (Ada L "Addie" Smith residing also in Spring Valley in Cherokee County);

JJ Moore age 51 (James Jaspar Moore residing in Henry Twsp Vernon County MO);

Samuel Moore age 60 (Samuel Henry Moore, residing possibly in Iowa but not verified);

JW Moore age 47 (Joseph "Jesse" Moore residing in Washington or California...NOTE Probate Court Letters and Petitions note that Claim against settlement of Sarah E. Moore Estate is being held due to inability to locate heir, J.W. Moore);

Grandchildren noted as heirs (Children of Margaret "Maggie" Moore and John Barton Marlett...these are also my Great Grandparents):
Ben Marlett age 32, Vernal Marlett age 30, Alice Marlett age 21, Effie Marlett age 18, Clara Marlett age 16,Rebecca Marlett age 14

ANYWAY...possibly some of this will help. I also added a couple of notes to Sarah's bio to further clarify what I do know....

The plot information was provided by City Hall 620-856-2114: buried 2/3/1920 in Plot 7 Blk 44 Lot 2 Space 9, owned by Jon Nelson; DOB noted as 6/22/1844 (Family Records says 7/10/1844) DOD as 2/2/1920 from Exhaustion; Other buried in same plot are Edith Nelson, Infant Son I.E. Hill, Ethel Adelia Moreland and Ace Moreland.

If there is anything else that you can think of that I could provide to you or additional calls that I could make that would help...just let me know. I haven't been able to travel this past 3 years, but hoping that soon I'll be able to drive again and then could get up to Baxter Springs...but in the meantime...I can't thank you enough for your persistence in trying to help me out. Also will be more than happy to reimburse you for any expenses...this just means so much to me!!!

You can post up to 5 photos on each memorial if you like, other than Ebenezer and he can have 4. Just follow the guidelines with no white edges. Thanks

By "No Stone" do you mean their graves are unmarked, or a photo hasn't been taken?

Fred Pulley - Baxter Springs
Hello Debbie,
I did receive your earlier SAC regarding Fred Pulley. I will move him over to the other NEW listing. I have spent over an hour counting how many I will need to move. In 2007 when I added all the soldiers in the soldiers lot there was only one listing everyone was using which was the Baxter Springs cemetery list. So now I have to move 105 over and there will be 105 duplicates. A mess.

Take care

Ollie Huntley
I've been doing research on my husband's family in Lebanon, Missouri and ran across this obit. I thought you might like to add some of it in case someone's researching her.
OLLIE HUNTLEY funeral services for Mrs. Ollie Huntley 79, were held at the Flatwoods Bible Church. Burial was in Mt. Zion Cemetery under the direction of Holman Funeral Home.
Ollie Winfrey daughter of John and Rosa Winfrey, was born in Laclede County on 22 March 1861.
In early womanhood she was united in marriage to William A. Huntley and they were the parents of seven children. Her husband, one son and a daughter preceded her in death.

EDITS at White Cemetery in Muskogee County

In case you were wondering, the source on those edits I have put in (mainly plot numbers) -- is the book "Our People And Where They Rest: A Visit to 104 Old Cemeteries in Eastern Oklahoma," James W. Tyner, Maxine Tyner and Alice Tyner Timmons, American Indian Institute, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK. 1970-1985, (Library of Congress No. QE99-C5-T97) There wasn't a place for me to put that in the edit form.

Thanks for all your help! Best wishes.

RE: Lois Messina
Hi thank you so much. You know, I can't seem to find any info about Joseph Messina, other than him and Lois lived in California at some point. I know most of her family was Missouri, so not sure yet anything about him other than their marriage in California in 1970. I will keep looking; mostly likely him but want to be sure.

Thanks again!

Find A Grave Memorial# 54627067

I just found two Census, 1900 and 1910 with the spelling of Horace. Now I really am confused. But his SSDI says Harris L Burd. WWI record says Harris Linn Burd. Indexed as Harris Sinn Burd.

Horris Lin B urd
Find A Grave Memorial# 54627067

Everything that I find in a legal document states his name as Harris Lynn Burd. SSDI, WWI record.

I am not sure which family member put up the headstone, but I don't think it is right. Could you put a notation that his name could be Harris Lynn Burd?

Thank you for all you do, your work is appreciated.

RE: Hale's at Wooden
THank you for this information. I know you and I have talked before about the missing marker for the mother and that could be. Sure wish we had the original burial plot. Oh well.

I see you are a cross stitcher. I had a friend who did that set of pictures. They are so beautiful. You are very talented!

Thanks again for all your help.

Hi Debbie, would you please link Henry to his parents. Mother Tilitha memorial # 90951396 and his Father John Thomas memorial # 90951315. They are also buried in Benton Branch Cemetery.
Tilitha and John are my gg-grandparents.
Thank you!

I added Angeline in as an unknown burial. Her # is 11480319. Would you link her to Thomas and to Enoch. I will add what information I know about her. Maybe one day someone will be looking for her and give us more information.

Thanks again. - Marg

Added by Margaret on Aug 04, 2013 8:11 AM

My apology for taking so long in getting back to you. I appreciate all your work on Wooden cemetery. As with Edna (Elm Grove) a lot of the old old records are gone. My grandfather worked in redoing them in the 60s and since I've been working with Find A Grave I've been able to add more information that I have gotten over the years.

I am relatively sure Thomas' wife is buried there but, like you, we are looked before (this was before my mom died in '01) and found a couple stones with no information. I'm sure one of them is hers. There could be another child that I'm not aware of. I had a cousin who was part of this line but she passed a few years ago. I have her information in my database.

So I think I will add Angeline as a not known burial but note she is probably buried there. I have very little information on her, not even parents. So when you get time you might go in and link Enoch to his mother.

Again, thank you for your hard work. I'm trying to finish Oswego and have completed Roberts and Ellis recently. Then on to the next one!

Mary Ellen Wilson

You recently left a flower for Mary Ellen Shutt and I wanted to say Thank You! I have tried to have Find a Grave recognize her as a famous person but they say that she does not meet their requirements.

I have resubmitted her for consideration again and I was hoping that you would re-visit her page and give her a fame rating. If enough people vote, maybe it will change the minds of the folks at Find a Grave.

Please click here Mary Ellen Shutt to take you directly to her page.
