Tom Flood page
I added a few pictures of Tom to his memorial page. Didn't know if you want to re-order them so his nice senior picture is first. Just added a couple of ones from the yearbook, and also a little bit clearer one of his headstone.

RE: Rankin-Wright & Spearman Cemetery
Does this sound like your description? Since you live in that county it will be easier for you to picture where this is, than I.

Section 33, Township 39 North range 13 west Miller county, missouri
This cemetery is not listed on the general highway map of Miller county. It is located on the James McKinnon property (an absentee owner). It can be reached by traveling west from Iberia, Missouri, on highway 42 to an old rural school, then turning south on Route 3, to the F.T. Atwell house, thence to the James McKinnon farm.
The cemetery is not in view from the road, being located at the far end of a cornfield. The cemetery is old, well fenced, but overgrown with native grass and weeds. Some graves were marked only with native rocks. This cemetery was inventoried by Ilene Sims Yarnell on Nov 11, 1962.

Rankin Wright Cemetery
Can you tell me if this cemetery, Rankin Wright, is also, or was also, called the Spearman Cemetery? I have a book from the genealogical library on Miller Co. cemeteries.
This Spearman Cemetery isn't listed on findagrave, but the first 2 names listed in this cemetery, Lucinda Ann Bear and Lucinda Bear, wife of Henry is listed in the Rankin Wright Cemetery.
I'm assuming that you are the one that input the Rankin Wright Cemetery information... right? If so, could you put in the location and driving directions to get to it? If it is the same, I can tell you what this book says about the section, township, etc.

Joseph Brunner Headstone
Rebecca - I am just overwhelmed - this is such a blessing that you were able to find Joseph Brunner's headstone and put the pictures on "findagrave" - I just don't know how to express what this means to us. I have a cousin in Houston, Texas and another in Toledo, Ohio and the three of us have searched and searched for more information about Joseph and his wife Elisabeth. This is such a great find and we thank you so much for your volunteer time for getting this for us.
Since you started the information for Joseph on "findagrave" would you edit it to add this information: He was born 1798 (we had 1794) in Hartheim, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany - died June 4, 1874 in Hickory Hill, Cole County, Missouri.
He married in Germany on March 15, 1824 to Elisabetha (Zehr) Brunner (born November 2, 1793 in Baden Wurttemberg, Germany - died November 19, 1864 in Norwalk, Huron County, Ohio.
Their children were: Blasius "Bliss" Zehr Brunner (1820-1895); Maria Theresea "Tracy" (Brunner) Zimmermann (1824-1896); Maria "Mary" Elisabetha (Brunner) Sickinger (1826-1905); Karl "Charles" Boromaus Brunner (1829-??); and Joseph Brunner (1832-1834). They came to America June 25, 1847 and settled in the Huron County, Ohio area - in 1865 after the death of Joseph's wife Elisabetha - the family moved to Cole County, Missouri in 1865.
Thank you again for your help - this was a wonderful e-mail to receive this evening.

Stark Cemetery-Miller CO
Just wanted to say thank-you Rebecca for posting pictures of the Stark cemetery in Miller CO, MO. I was there many years ago visiting family. I remember walking out to the cemetery that I think was somewhere by the 2 room house my GG Aunt and Uncle lived in.

Do you ever visit the Enon Cemetery in Cole County?
Hello Becky,

When I was in Missouri I missed going to the Enon Cemetery in Cole County, Missouri.

I have three photo requests there for: Melinda Roark, Marion Roark and Mary Roark at the Enon Cemetery.

Had I remembered I could have stopped there on the way to Hopewell and Gott. It may be another year before I get back that way.

If you ever happen to be in the vicinity of the Enon Cemetery, (only 177 graves in Find A Grave) could you stop by and see what you can find?

If not I will stop there next year on the way back from visiting relatives in Chicago.

Still wondering what happened to the gravestone for Noah Roark and his wife Louisa. If you ever locate it, let me know. Maybe vandalism? It was there when you photographed it.

Visit to Gott Cemetery
Thanks for the offer to meet us at the Gott Cemetery. We will be visiting Hopewell Cemetery first in Barnett though. Not sure how long it will take to find relatives there under the name of Son.

If you could send us your cell phone number we could call when leaving Hopewell Cemetery but I am not sure I want to inconvenience you waiting around for us to call. We will be leaving the motel in about 30 - 40 minutes anyway and won't have access to email while driving in the car.

It would be nice to have a guide at the Gott Cemetery and to meet you as a fellow Find A Grave searcher.

Not sure what to do at this point since we are leaving the motel so soon.

John Roberthaw
