Hello Carol, I was tracing back to Moses Atteberry when I came onto your James. I have posted a photo from our genealogy book. Contact me if you would like. Have a great day. Genealogist.

Hi Carol. I've transferred Marcia to you. Thanks for the parents links for Michael. Would you also like to manage the other 3 Towler family members?

You are welcome very much. It just happened that I was on the computer when the requests came through. I will try to get over there to retake the one photo when I can. Let me know if there is anything else in the area that you need.

Sarah Hendrickse Vanvoorhees
I believe the name of the wife of Adonijah Peacock, Jr. (1757-1831) is Sarah Hendrickse Vanvoorhees, born 16 Mar 1766 Northampton Township, Monmouth Co., NJ, was baptised 13 Apr 1766 at Old Tennant Church, Burlington Co., NJ and died 27 Jan 1846 at the Peacock homestead, Medford Township, Burlington Co., NJ. She was buried at the Peacock burying grounds, Chairville, Burlington Co., NJ.

Her parents were Hendrick Hendrickse Vanvoorhees (1740-1827) and Jean Lesley (1735-1811).

RE: Atterbury Cem
Yes, it's very strange that two people came looking for the same cemetery after decades passed without visitors! I'm glad the cattle had moved on when I was there.

Atterbury Cem
Hi C
Found it yesterday! Still no stone for John Atterbury, but found the others in pretty good shape. Have added photos for them. Did not find Alva F Atterbury, but did find Alva F Shreckhise, so have added a memorial for him and linked to his parents. Some of the dates you have on the memorials are wrong, at least according to the stones, so will send corrections and some links for them. Mrs Hall has been very helpful and wants a copy of the listing, so will take one to her when I go back to get my probe that's still stuck in the ground up there! I looked around for any other stones, but am pretty sure there are no others. The stones were thrown around the base of the cedar, but some of the bases were still in their original location. So glad you put this cemetery on there. Will also be sending a description of the cemetery, if you wouldn't mind adding it to the page.

I finally just traced the Atterbury/Turner/McCully connection. Now it all makes sense! Is Lillian the one who listed the McCully Cem, too? Did she do anymore cemeteries?

RE: Theodosia Burton
You've got me curious about what line your mom and aunt Lillian Harmon descend from. Lots of Harmons in Chariton Co, I think. What was her husband's name and line? Hope I'm not getting too nosy!

RE: Theodosia Burton
Do you have any idea where those books would be? I don't know where the books would be if not in the court house. I've been in their vault where they keep all the old records once, but I'm not sure just what all they have in there.

RE: Theodosia Burton
This Mrs Hall has just lived there the last 20 years. Must have been here father-in-law who helped your aunt.
I'll try to make it to the courthouse one of these days and check that marriage book. When I'm able to get up to Randolph Co, I spend all my time in cemeteries. Maybe this winter I'll be able to.

RE: Theodosia Burton
Good news! I called Mrs Hall tonight, Her husband has passed away recently and she is getting ready to sell the place, but said if I come soon, she will show me where it is. I'll be sure to take a probe and shovel to hopefully find John Atterbury's stone, as well as any others that might have been missed.

It looks like Alfred R Shreckhise #16686275 is buried in Linn Co along with his parents and other kin. He shares a stone with a son, Jurez G, from his second marrige to Elizabeth Orr. Both father and son died in Feb 1871, just a few days apart. The funny thing is, I also found a service record for him that says he was killed by bushwackers in 1864.Couldn't be two Alfred R Shreckhise, could there? Still can't find marriage records for either marriage.

I'll be sure to let you know if and when I make it to the Atterbury Cem. Again, thanks for your great help!

RE: Theodosia Burton
Excellent! It looks like the Halls still own the ground, so I'll see if I can get in touch with them. Do you know who Drucilla's husband was? I couldn't find a marriage record for her, and thought you might know who it was. Thanks for all your help!

John Atterbury Farm Cemetery
Hi C,
It's me again...from the McCully Cem. I received the photo requests for the Atterbury Cem, but this is one I've never heard of. I think I located his farm on the plat maps but need more to go off of. Do you have a transcription or more of a location? There is another destroyed cemetery less than a mile east of his farm, with no stones remaining, but it doesn't look like he ever owned it. Any help you can give me would be very much appreciated!

RE: Margaret Turner
The word is that when the person who had all the records died, the family burned all her papers, not realizing what they were. Big bummer, that on is! There are a few at the MO Hist Society in Columbia, but no recorded deaths, mostly membership logs.

Do you have her death date? It's been a couple years since I worked on the Turners, but I never could find out her death date. Thanks!

RE: Mary Elizabeth Turner Atterbury
I think there is a mistake on the birth date. The age given on a list that was sent to me many years ago says she was 38 years of age instead of 33 at her death. Also, many researcher list that she was born in 1806 not 1810. I wrote to N

I show that John Martin Turner and Sarah Jane McCully married 25 June 1846. I see several others show the same date. I see Mary Elizabeth was born 24 may 1847.

Mary Elizabeth Turner Atterbury
Just a note to tell you that I deleted the memorial for Sarah Jane McCully Turner by mistake. I was trying to move the memorial to the cemetery just entered named McCully (John) Cemetery. I had Sarah Jane in the Eldad Cemetery and Nancy Meadows located a stone for Sarah Jane in the McCully (John) Cemtery. In the process to move the memorial, I deleted the memorial so you will need to link Mary Elzabeth Turner Atterbury to Sarah Jane McCully Turner #93755305. Nancy also found the grave stones for John McCully and his wives named Sarah White McCully and Lucy Brammer McCully. Also, many of their children. Nancy says that the McCully-Haines Cemetery is located about 1.68 miles southeast of the McCully (John) Cemetery. This is a great find.
