Wesley Powers- Memorial# 65361173
Richard, one of the volunteers searched the Partin Cemetery at Red Oak for this Wesley Powers, and could not find him. Would you have any more information on this grave site? I have physically searched half the cemeteries in Whitley Co. looking for him. Wesley is my 2nd great grandfather and a civil war veteran. I would love to have a photo of his stone if there is one.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial # 72516490
Thanks for the reply. My Find a Grave number is 47802022. "TexasOpa" is my user name. The request is for my grandmother's older sister who died in her second year and was buried in Appleton City, Missouri. None of her siblings remember her because they were all born after she died.

So thanks again for finding and posting Anna's tombstone. You solved a big mystery for us.
Greetings from Texas,
David Ebert

Find A Grave Memorial # 72516490
Anna M.T. Herrmann,# 72516490 born 1882 died 1883, was a younger sister to Rosetta Herrmann Baldwin, Rosetta is # 118477973. and she is my maternal GRANDMOTHER. I am manager of her memorial. My mother Mary Frances Baldwin EBERT is from Rosetta's first marriage to Charles Baldwin.

Thank you for posting the photo of Anna Herrmann's grave stone. This was a "brick Wall" in my research because family history said that the first child of William Henry Herrmann was stillborn and I had and I had no name.

Now I would appreciate it if you would transfer the care little Anna's memorial to me. Thanks,

Wills Cemetery
Floyd Pulse
Floyd Pulse already had two memorial on find A grave. You have added a third with a different spelling. Unfortunately Wills Cemetery has more memorial on find a grave then we have graves. Including people not interred there and people who are still living.

Wills Cemetery,

Jim Clark, Director

Move Robison to Ralls County
Hello Find A Grave Member,

Vandalia Cemetery is divided in two parts / Audrain County & Ralls County
Cemetery notes and/or description:
This is not to be confused with the northern portion of this same cemetery which falls into Ralls County, Missouri. The Ralls/Audrain county line road divides this cemetery.

Please move all of these to Vandalia Cemetery, Ralls County. I have verified each one of these and they are all in the first row next to the Gravel Road that divides Audrain and Ralls.

Isaac Samples
Hi Richard,
I believe this Isaac Samples was also buried in the Samples cemetery if you would like to add him. I am not related, just frustrated and decided to change directions for awhile and I'm picking on you! Ha!

Mr. Isaac Samples.

Death is no respector of persons
or seasons, and while so many were
happy in the pleasures of Christ-
mas-time, one home in our com-
munity was made sad by the hand
of death.
Mr. Isaac Samples, son of Mr.
John H. Samples, of Straight
Creek, who, for some time, has
been working in Pocahontas, con-
tracted typhoid fever, was removed
to the Elkins hospital, and, on
Thursday night, died unexpectedly,
at least so to his friends and fami-
His body was brought home,
those in charge arriving late Sat-
urday evening.
Isaac was the oldest son of the
family, being about 28 years of
age. He was industrious-a black-
smith by trade-and, by his ab-
stemious, moral life, set an example
which many young men would do
well to imitate.
He was a member of Monterey
Lodge, I.O.O.F., in good stand-
ing, and received not only kind at-
tention from the West Virginia
fraternity, but was buried by his
home lodge, Sunday, Dec. 29, in
the presence of one of the largest
crowds ever seen at a funeral in
that community.

Highland Recorder, Monterey, Highland
County, VA, January 03, 1908.

RE: Hill
James Charles Suggs,and Elizabeth Hill... They are my 3rd Great Grandparents... James was b. 1825 in Moniteau,he died Jan 28,1865 in Rock Island Union Prison Camp Illinois..hes buried there too. His father owned slaves.

My father William Charles, also went by Charles..I guess not to have confusion with all the Williams..I spoke to Joseph Lewis Suggs' wife a few yrs back, She told me William was carried into every line,so if i see the name they are most likely related, along with others,but mainly william. Her dau Carla Suggs is on my fb.

Nellie Eliza (Mae) Suggs , had a son named Carl that was adopted out to family. His dau Carla Lashley Humphreys is working on the Fewell lines in Missouri.
she is on my FB too.

My father's mother, Cora Dell Stringer June, was sister to William Greg Stringer, Bertha A White..Like Bertha's sons, who died in a car in a car accident outside of Raytown, my dad was also a Hemophiliac..a gene passed on from the stringer lines. It skipped my son,thankfully. My dad survived his motorcycle accident, but not the aftermath.. according to my gram, Elsie, the night bef his release, he bled to death in a coma. I was just abt 9 mos old, they didnt allow children in ICU, she was sneaking me in..shh dont

Martha Caroline Fewell, it was told to me by Carla, that Effie was of Indian Bloodlines...I also came across census of Birdsong being Indian in one, but when they arrived in Missouri, they said they was white

I havent done to much on the Hill Lines, I do know it a very old line with a lot of Royals..I believe it was Miles Allee, who was a Judge..and I did find in Masonic.

Memorial # 29483310
Memorial #29483310 appears to have been added by mistake. I have checked with the cemetery caretaker and they have no record of such person. My Great Grandfathers memorial #39416029 has the same dates. Could this be a mistake. I would request that you remove Memorial @29483310 unless you have proof of such person. Charles German

Henry Jackson Totty 62836474
Hi Richard, I just wanted to see if you might consider transferring the memorials to me of Henry Jackson Totty and his wife Mary Frances Scott 62836447. Mary Frances is my GGA. I have a handwritten letter from her father listing all the dates and places of birth and deaths of all his descendants that he could. I would love to be able to get this family all linked together. Their daughter Mamie Pearl Totty is a first cousin 2R. 67254985. Mary Frances is Scott is one of 18 children in that family. I have the information on all of them.

I do appreciate all the work you do.

Joseph Walker HouK (X)
Check your Joseph Walker Houk on Find A Grave at Mineral Creek. You will notice there is another Joseph Walker HouX. I knew this family, and Houx is the correct spelling of the name. You might check others you entered as Houk, and will probably want to update to the correct spelling. I'm looking at stones for Bernice Houx, Fannie Neil Houx, Jolee Frances Houx, Joseph, Joseph Lee Houx and wife Alice. Thanx for checking this out.
