Oliver Bagwell FAG # 99927651

I accepted your suggestion before checking, the people you asked me to link as parents, Claude and Edith I Dixon Bagwell. Claude was probably his son, not father. Oliver was born in the 1881, while Claude was born in 1903. I disconnected the link. Perhaps you can link Claude to Oliver and his wife Mary?

Trussell/Cable Family Tree

I've sent you several emails regarding the Cable/Trussell family tree, but have yet to hear from you. You mentioned in your first email you were having computer issues, so this may be why I haven't heard from you. Please email me at at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

Memorial# 42164585 Mary Halliburton
Hi, I'm afraid you didn't receive my SAC from April 25, so I'm copying the info here. Mary Catherine was born 20 Mar 1838, and died 04 Aug 1863. She was the second wife of William Martin Halliburton, whom she married on 04 Sep 1862. They were the parents of Mary Catherine Halliburton (married William Jean.) It would be great if you could add these details. Thanks so much! Linda

Do you want control of this memorial? I truly believe family should take care of family.

Would you please add this to the memorial. Thanks, Paul Isbell

Buchanan, Matthew Young- p.221 Confederate Veteran May 1903.-The VETERAN pays special tribute to the character of Matthew Young Buchanan, whose life began and ended at Moberly, Mo. He was born April 5, 1838, and died April 7, 1903. Both of Judge Buchanan's parents C. C. Buchanan and Elizabeth Jenkins were reared in Middle Tennessee, and, as might have been expected, he ardently espoused the Confederate cause. He was a member of Company A of the Tenth Missouri Infantry. His regiment fought at Boonville and Lexington, Mo., at Prairie Grove, Ark., and at Corinth, Miss. W. J. Walker, of Jacksonville, Mo., who was practically with him every day during the war, reports that on July 4, 1863, in an unequal struggle at Helena, from 600 to 700 of the regiment were captured, including ourselves. We were held at Alton, Ill., eight months, and after a year longer at Fort Delaware we were exchanged and started on our way to the Trans- Mississippi Department. After much difficulty we reached the great river, seeking a means to cross, when the Federals recaptured us. We were at Vicksburg for two weeks, then sent back to Alton prison and kept there until after the surrender. The VETERAN had no more zealous friend. A few months ago the editor, being at Moberly, Judge Buchanan procured a gathering of veterans and Daughters of the Confederacy, and an hour of reminiscences and conferences upon live issues was profitably spent. The occasion will be delightedly remembered. Judge Buchanan was a ruling elder in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church for nearly forty years, and was long the president of the elders' and deacons' board. He served over thirty five years on the school board of his district, and was presiding judge of the County Court for eight years. He is survived by a wife, a daughter, and four sons. The funeral was conducted in the Sugar Creek Church by the pastor of the Moberly Church, Rev. J. L. Routt. Messrs. Shearon, Walker, Pool, Dossey, Holbrooks, and Frank Tedford paid tribute to his worth. Comrade Walker, of Jacksonville, Mo., who knew him best through severest trials, writes that he was good and true, that there was no deception in him. To this loyal comrade Judge Buchanan said just before the end : "If it is the Lord's will to take me now, I am ready to go."

Oliver-Neale Cemetery
Hi Doras,
I hope I'm not totally mixed up, but I seem to remember your name on a listing for this cemetery I saw in the Randolph County Historical Society. If it was you, and you have photos, would you mind posting some of them? I would love to see it myself, but not sure where it is.
Thanks so much,
