RE: Lora L Austin 24796516
I was wondering where you obtained the Bio information of the page of Lora L Austin #24796516? She was my grandmother. I have the typed genealogy from my father and other relatives and your information is not there.

RE: William Hickman Boston Sr.
If only I had more information to give. If I lived in the area I would look through old newspaper microfiche to see what might have happened to this cemetery. Were they moved to another cemetery? If only someone could dig around.

Dave Potts
Ray Nixon Potts

First let me thank you wholeheartedly for posting this gravestone picture. I was hopeful that someday I may be able to locate thisgravestone. Nixon Potts was my g-g-g-grandfather.

This is my correction for the Brock Cemetery. You have Nixon Potts listed as Ray (Rey) Nixon Potts age 33 years and 3 months.

The gravestone information should read Rev. (Reverend) Nixon Potts 73 years and 3 months. Although I have never visited the graveyard, I know Nixon Potts was a minister and was born in 1806 in Harrison County, Virginia (Now West Virginia). His civil war pension records states he died September 15, 1879. I know that be moved to Brock in Scotland County, Missouri after the Civil War.

Is there knowledge of any other Potts that are living or know of any gravestones of other Potts in Scotland County, Missouri? If so I can be reached at

Again thank you very much for entering this picture in Find A Grave.

Old Smith Cemetery
Hi Jane, Well do you know where Old Smith Cemetery is? It is on the Spray place, I am assuming that it was someone or is someone's farm land. It is suppose to be just west of Bible Grove. I was just wondering if it is still even there. I looked on some sites and only one lists it, but no names, they need a volunteer. So I have no idea, if it even still exists. Can you find out since I thought that I saw that you did research in Scotland county Missouri? Do you live there? If not, no worries, I will keep looking also. Thank you Jill

Hickory Grove Cemetery
Larry and Jane,

I have enjoyed reading your entries from Hickory Grove Cemetery. It is such a lovely place; one of my favorite cemeteries. My great-grandparents are buried there, Edd and Ella Wheeler. My husband is related to the McClintocks buried there: Alexander and Tabitha Elizabeth Pryor McClintock.

Do you know anything about the Pryor Hotel? Do you have any pictures of old Arbela or the Pryor family?
