Thanks, Gail

You should have gotten a Reply Via E-mail, and I by now you should have gotten that.
And I will Send my Reply via E-mail as is much better than doing it on here.
And I will get your Answer to you just as Soon As Possable as I said. Take Care, Mark Thomas

Mark, I received a couple of emails from you not too long ago and dropped them as I did not recognize the name. Now that I just visited the pages of Britan Cemetery on Find A Grave my memory has been refreshed. If you remember the subject, give me a line at

Mary Margaret Farrar Armstrong
Dear Mark,
Are you in the vicinity of the McAllister Cemetary? Would you be available and able to go to that cemetary to photgraph specifically, the grave stones or markers for Mary Margaret Farrar Armstrong and her husband John Armstrong? My understanding is that they were buried in the Giersa-Drace Cemetary, a Farrar family cemetary going back a generation or two prior to Mary Margaret and husband dying. This cemetary was recently destroyed due to a subdivision being built there. From what I understand, Mary MArgaret Farrar Armstrong and her husband John Armstrong MAY be buried at a cemetary known as Johnson-Calwell Cem., in Washington, in Franklin Cty. I read of this on a site of Floyd Pratt's writings about the outcome of those buried at the Giersa-Drace Cem.
Would you have the ability to go to these to cemetaries, if they are near to your locale, to find out, for family historical sake, the true resting places of these two individuals?
Thank you. I write to you due to the fact that you have a cem. photo posted for Mary Margaret Farrar Armstrong, but no photo of an actual headstone. Perhaps she is not actually buried in the McAllister Burial Grounds that have the photos you took posted on the memorial for Mary Margaret. In conclusion, there had been THREE Memorials for each of these indiv. on find A Grave. I believe we are down to two each now. Hopefully, we can get it correct, to prevent confusion. One person=One Find A Grave Memorial as person can really only be buried in ONE place.
Thank you for your attention to this matter., Farrar descendent of Leonard Farrar, original owner of the defunct Giersa-Drace Cemetary (a family cemetary that included Farrars).

Comfort Osborn Johnson
Re Memorial #43350457 for Comfort Osborn Johnson:
She was the daughter of William Osborne and Rebecca Richmond, who moved to MO about 1808. Comfort was first married 25 November 1833 to Solomon Drace, son of Thomas Drace and Elizabeth Alkire. They had one daughter, Mary Elizabeth.

Comfort Osborne Drace remarried, to Martin Johnson, 26 December 1837, Wm. R. Ellett, JP Presiding. They had at least the following children:
William H b abt 1840 (Comfort's dad's name)
Isaac W b abt 1843 (Comfort had an Uncle Isaac)
John Thomas b abt 1845
Rebecca T b abt 1848 (Comfort's mom's name)
Charles M b abt 1851
James H. b abt 1854

John Osborne who married Tabitha Wilkerson was Comfort Johnson's kid brother, born 5 August 1829 in Franklin Co MO.

I descend from Comfort Osborne's sister Sarah, and from her brother-in-law, Silas Drace. They rest in Giersa-Drace Cemetery near Villa Ridge.

Britan Cemetery
Mark, Glad to see that someone found Britan Cemetery. My instructions on how to get there were by guess and by golly! All info came from searches and was probably very old. I see a lot of your family is buried there? If you ever get a chance to go there again, I would appreciate if you could search out and photograph John and Margaret Dickey's grave markers. John pastored the Presbyterian church that was in the vacinity. The plaque you photographed, is it about John Dickey? If so,do you still have the jpg file for the plaque? Would you mind emailing it to me? Did you happen to notice a church structure at Britan? Thank you, Sam Steele

RE: McCallister Cemetery Franklin county
Hey,that picture of the rows of stones was my idea. Good job! My kids can't seem to get my picture returned to me.
Franklin county in general could use someone like you to list names on findagrave. Sue Cooley at the Union Library will answer mail and help out lots! The Union Library also has lots of cem books,microfilm,etc.
Also their was a cem being uncovered and rediscovered beside St John's road when we were there in Oct 2008. If you get back to Franklin County take a look there and see what's been uneathed. I am going to list the cem for now as St John's Road cem so you will have a map.Also lots could be done on Giersa Cem listings.

RE: McCallister Cemetery Franklin county
Will send you the names Sat,18 Johnson's I think. I would say taht mostly just the stones were moved,the man at the house said some graves taht only an appropiate amt of dirt was moved because there wasn't anything there,bad deal for our conscience. Will get back tom. Shann Caldwell Thayer,Mo

RE: McCallister Cemetery Franklin county
Should be the same cem. Please add names.
Another cem was "moved" - the rows of stones,side by side. This would be a good cem for someone to add all the names to findagrave,are you interested?
