Oh, you are so kind to transfer this to me and I appreciate it very much. Thank you!
The picture is so unexpected - how did you ever find it? When we were there it was just overgrown with a few sheep in the enclosure. We were given permission to look around, but it was impossible to find this. Were you able to read any of the rest of the stone? Her sister, Hannah Ann (Smith) Thornburg is also buried there.

Thank you again for your generosity. Could I have your permission to use the photo on my Ancestry tree crediting you?

Sinklear Cemetery

I know that the Sinklear (aka Sinclair) Cemetery in Ralls Co MO is on private property and I don't know who the present owner is. The cemetery was once on the original Isaac Griffin farm and in turn it was turned over to Isaac's youngest daughter Mary Ann 'Annie' Kelly and her family.

If by chance you ever get a chance to go to the cemetery could you use some colored chalk to rub across the names and dates on the gravestone for Oran W Griffin and Bertha Pearl Griffin so that the info can be verified. I have one set of dates but some believe that they should be another set. The chalk will eventually disappear by Mother Nature's help (wind and rain). Some believe it will damage the limestone gravestones but I used it back in the 1980's on some very old ones and today they are still intact and legible because it cleaned the surface area and prevented the moss from growing on it again.

Thank you.

J.H. Forman Family Cemetery
Hello Gary,

I saw that you recently took some photos in this cemetery in Shelby County, MO and I was wondering if you could give me directions to find it? I am traveling from Illinois to NE MO[Shelby County mainly] this Thursday, 13 June and really want to visit this cemetery. You took a photo of my 4th great grandfather's stone and I was thrilled to see it! Thank you.
Also, since you are from the area, I wonder if you have ever heard of the Noblitt Cemetery in Knox County, MO? It is a small family cemetery that is overgrown and on private land I think now. All I have for directions is it is about 30 miles southeast of Edina and on a roadside. Not much to go on.

I hope you can help me and I would be so appreciative.
Thank you,
Michelle Pendleton

Jane King, Mount Olivet Cemetery
Hi, Gary! I corresponded with you about 2 years ago, and provided you with my great grandmother's death date. I was just looking at the entry again, and discovered that it's shown as 1937 instead of 1957. When you get the time, could you make that correction, please? I know you've probably got tons to do, so there's no hurry. I'm just grateful that folks like you help other genealogists by photographing grave sites and make those photos available to those of us who live too far away to do it ourselves. Keep up the great work!

This is my gr gr aunt - daughter of Edgar Franklin and Celia Emmerton Crawford. Her grandparents are also buried in Riverside (Stephen and Clara Eggleston Crawford). Would you consider transferring her over to me for maintenance? I have a picture of her and can link her to her parents, et al. Thank you for your consideration. Gale #47855496

Farm Girl from MO.
Sgt. C. H. Dunn & Soldier Dunn
The memorial for Sgt. C. H. Dunn #104433354 and the memorial for Soldier Dunn #104433548 are for the same person. Actually his name on his stone on both memorials for him looks to me like it reads, D. N. Dunn, who probably is the same person as David N. Dunn who is mentioned in a History of Selby County, Missouri. See photo added by Larry Easterday. There is also a group memorial for D. N. Dunn located in the Jefferson City National Cemetery.
Just trying to be of help. Have a nice day, Marla M. from MO.

Charles William Beezley was my paternal grandfather. I am new to this program, so I am not sure if this is the family you refer to. However, if it is, are YOU related?

RE: Nelsons
It is very possibly that they don't have markers. The family was poor and Mary was an infant. Can you give me directions out there to the cemetery? I tried to find it once but had no luck. Is there an actual road to it or do you have to park and walk up to the cemetery?

Have you ever been out to Rush Cemetery? I put John and his granddaughter Mary there because this was the cemetery listed on their death certificates.
