RE: George Hidy
Thanks for the transfer, Martha. I don't think to look in my FindAGrave messages, so I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply.

Independence obituaries are not online; I got George's from the Midwest Genealogy Center which has many years of them on microfilm. MGC does have the Kansas City Star online from about 1991 on - it is one of the online databases that Mid-Continent Public Library subscribes to.

James McCoy, Great Bethel Baptist Church Cemetery
I have received your edit submissions, but wanted to let you know that I am holding off on adding dates. I am descended from the James McCoy you refer to, but I am not convinced this is the same man. I started looking into this cemetery because I have seen some different stories that say he is buried here, and I created the memorial from a list put together by another researcher who had visited the cemetery, but the information they listed did not include dates for James(which they usually include if available). I have requested a photo, but a volunteer stated they had searched the entire cemetery without finding the headstone. (He said many stones were illegible). I have also read somewhere that his wife might be buried here, but my cemetery listing did not include her name. It might be an error, but probably the biggest thing that makes me hesitate to say this is my grandfather is that the grave supposedly has a marker showing he fought in the War of 1812, after my grandfather's death. Perhaps you have some evidence I have not seen that would prove who this James is. If so, I would love to hear what you've found! I look forward to any further info. you might have to share.

Hi Martha! Would you please copy this photograph and post it onto this memorial?I know your bio said we could copy your photos but I really feel a bit funny about seeing my name beneath a photo I didn't take! And I've just input a request for a photo of her individual marker so if you ever happen to be in Mound Grove with your camera . . . I'd really appreciate that, too!! Tom
