Grave markers
After I do all the data from Jan & Feb 1940 I will probably fill some of the cemetery photo requests near me. I am trying to buy a couple of plots myself for a cemetery just north of town.

Oh, and by the way, If you haven't heard about the good results people are getting by adding coconut oil to their meals. I am a living success story.

SInce I started using it in late January I have reversed the Alzheimers I did have. I am able to to sign my name again and my abilities to concentrate are fantastic.

My butcher in the next town was diagnosed woth Parkinson's and I told his wife about the oil. I less than 2 months he now walks on a tread mill and swears buy the oil.

I first started using to keep from having to take flu or any type of shots. It actually will kill ANY virus, bacteria, mold and fungus.

Our area has lousy mold counts, as high as 12 - 24,000.

When it bothers me I justg put drops of the oil in my eyes instead of visine. Does not hurt at all. Oh, and the oil desolves cateracts and removes floaters.

I will send more information to you via email if you want.

RE: Ethel Rice
Right now I putting in information from obits. Just upgrading dates, links and tying in decendents.

RE: Ethel Rice
I am going to find out how to type in the obits so the information gets put in.

I probably have more than 1-200 of them.

About 15 yearss ago I bought at an antique mall a hardbound Decatur Herald newspaper. Jan thru Feb 1940.

So it will take a few months/years to type them in.

Best of all while I visit fnd a grave I am able to link people. I sometimes find a shared stone and no link between man and wife. I browse through the cemetery file and find the other half and link them.

I have done this with my family trees. More than 1900 people.

Now I will start with those in the Decatur Herald 1940.

I also add photos of wedding announcents I find.

RE: Ethel Rice
I have found the area that gives me a list of the photos I have placed on fine a grave.

I have removed the scaned obituaries.

I humbly appologize for the error on my part.

The entries I made of the tombstone I took myself I kept.

I also kept the photos I posses of the people in my family tree.

I am connecting with the Decatur Herald to obtain permission to post photos from the hardbound newspapers I posses for January - February 1940. Once I have pemission I will include the fact that I have a release from them to post them to find a grave.

I thank You

RE: hursts
Yes, I am definitely related to the Hursts. My 3x Great Grandmother was Lydia Smith Hurst (1818-1897) who was the daughter of Elijah S. Hurst and Mary Lindsey. I would love to see what information you have.

RE: walter colladay
Thank you so much for posting the wonderful old photo of the (now torn down) mausoleum and checking on Walter's wife, Helen. We now believe Helen Amanda (Shoaff) Colladay Booth is buried in the Edgar Cemetery. Would you know who to contact at the Edgar Cemetery to see if they have listings for Helen or Charles W. Booth? We now have a date of death for Helen, but need a date of death or burial for Charles W. Booth (Died after April 1940, probably in Indiana. He was age 88 in 1940, so probably died 1940-1950.)

RE: james earp
You are so welcome! No, not related that I know of. The president of the Shelby County Historical Society sends me information that she thinks would be important to family researchers and I try to do what I can to honor her requests and forward the data along. She is trying so hard to get not only Shelby County, Missouri in tip top condition for folks looking for family history, but other people in other counties as well. She has loads of information at the Historical Society building and is sharing to make additions to Find A Grave Memorials. She is doing a wonderful job, God willing she will be able to continue for many, many more years! If she and/or I find anything else that we think would be important be assured we will forward it along. Thank you for placing the obit in James's bio and for all you are doing on Find A Grave!!

I saw that you have the memorial for Anna Steidley. I have a newspaper obit for her husband and wanted to make him a memorial page but the info in the obit says West cemetery (the Moweaqua News) Do you know which cemetery this is? I am in Louisiana and don't know that area. Thanks

RE: William Earp
Thank you for responding, Donna. Margaret, b.1836, and buried in Brick Chapel is the daughter of Lucinda & John Henry's marriage. John died in 1862 as a result of injuries received during the Civil War. As you state, Lucinda then married William 6 years later and, to my knowledge, they had no children. The "other" Martha Henry is Sarah Reeves & Daniel Henry's daughter and Lucinda & John Henry's granddaughter, born in 1855. Daniel is also Lucinda & John Henry's son. My interest lies with the Henrys. To my knowledge, we have no connection to the Earp family. I see the comment that Martha, b.1836, is his daughter remains in William's bio. If interested, see the 1860 US Census for confirmation of the relationship between John & Lucinda and Daniel & Martha Henry, et al.:) I'm delighted you are so open to new information! Again, thanks. Holler if I can be of any help whatsoever.

Janet, I just checked the duplicate and I noticed it appears to have been deleted so perhaps the form I entered did work.

Added by Eileen Bridges on Apr 22, 2015 9:43 AM

Janet, I am unable to delete the other entry because it was entered by someone else. I am only the current manager and unable to delete anything previously entered. I tried to use the delete form but it didn't work. Perhaps you should ask findagrave to delete it.

The formatting was lost in the previous post, but basically it will show you what you currently have, what I am suggesting to change, and then you select whether or not you will accept the changes. If you do, the changes are made with the click of a button, and you don't have to retype anything.

Here is what my edit suggestion looked like. I'm going to send it again on his new memorial so you can go thru the edit tab and accept the changes, Okay?

RE: Maude Decker Krohn
Sounds good, I'll e-mail a reminder in May. Also, you might want to pass on to Maude's family (if they are interested) that I have more information on the Strunk family line. It goes back to our Revolutionary War patriot William Strunk. My mother and I were both brought into DAR with this line. :)

RE: Maude Decker Krohn
Janet, would you know if Maude or her family had any pictures of her parents? I don't think anybody on our side has ever seen a pic their parents Henry Decker or Lutisha Strunk. I know it's a long shot, just thought I'd ask. :)

Samuel and Angeline Wright
In the picture of Samuel and Angeline in their senior years, the caption has them marrying in 1871 while stating that Angeline was born in 1880.
According to my tree and the other sources I have seen, she was born in 1850.
