Blake & Canterbury Family
My mother has an old photo with the names of Ralph & Alice (Blake) Canterbury written on the back. She just remembers them as "cousins". I was wondering if you are related to the Blake or Canterbury family?

That's what I was guessing, too - but just thought I'd check. Thanks again.

Daniel Johnson at Sugar Creek FAG 82341713
Hey, Tom -
Quick question: Do you happen to have a photo for grave of Daniel Johnson at Sugar Creek # 82341713 ? I'm not asking for one to be taken, but just wondered if you might have one that for some reason wasn't put on Findagrave. Daniel married my 2nd great grandmother Susan Jane Funderburk Yocam after her first husband, George, died. I've been working on adding some photos for the little (and saldly desecrated) Yocam family cemetery where three of Daniel's children are buried, along with my 2nd great grandmother - and in connecting these persons on Findagrave noticed there was no marker photo for Daniel (and perhaps he doesn't have one).
Thanks for the good work you do,
Bob Turpin

Levi Thomas buried in Sugar Creek Cemetery in Buchanan County Missouri should have the following children added to his listing. Edna Thomas Wheeler,

Can you do this? Much appreciated

Would you like ownership of this memorial? I can transfer it to you. I prefer that relatives "own" the sites for their ancestors on I would be happy to give him to you.

Catherine McElfresh Larrison
Good Afternoon,

My name is Dusty Larison, and I'm a 2x great-grandson of Catherine McElfresh Larrison, buried in Armstrong Cemetery in Rushville, MO.

I know her death certificate is online with the state of Missouri. I was curious to know if you had any information about her husband, Martin (Henry) Larrison, as I believe he is most likely buried with Catherine, although they no longer have a headstone.

On Find-A-Grave, there is a white board, that essentially shows a blueprint of the different grave sites, and the last names if the individuals. I wanted to know if you had any idea of who might have the white board, or if you know who maintains the cemetery, that may have more info on exact locations/names of the burial plots.

Thank you so much for adding her to Find-A-Grave. If you are interested in information on the branch of the Larrison (now Larison) family tree that Catherine is a part of, I'd be glad to provide you with what I have.

Thank You,

Dusty Larison

Grandma Mary is buried at Sugar Creek along with 57 other of my relatives, both distant and close. I certainly appreciate your work there, but can I take control of her memorial? She meant the world to me and I have so much to share about her. Not sure how that works, but wanted your permission first.

Boggs Family
Tom-So sorry it has taken so long to get back to you regarding the Boggs family. My GG Grandmother was Charlea A. BOGGS Jones/m. to Lewis W. Jones. Her father was John Boggs/buried in Rice County, Kansas. Our family on that side is confusing, as the Jones' are hard to research, there are so many, and it appears that several Boggs married Jones', but I do know she came from Kansas.

RE: John Flannery Bunten
If you enlarge the death certificate and look carefully, I think you will see that it is Flanery, not Flowery. Compare the letters o, a, and n as written by the person who filled out the certificate. I realize it is indexed as Flowery, but as an indexer myself, and after having made the comparisons of the letters, I believe the name is Flanery. And most likely misspelled at that.
Let me know what you think.

Thank you!

Sanford LEE Turpin - Sugar Creek
There seems to be a legitimate disagreement as to whether Sanford Turpin's (Find A Grave 66500011) middle name was LEE or LeRoy, as you show on his Sugar Creek memorial; even members of his family that I have asked don't seem to know for sure. However I would offer two arguments for "LEE": Sanford's older brother (only sibling), my grandfather Granville Turpin, recorded his brother's name as Lee, and noted it was given for their Uncle Lee Turpin (whose name was actually George Willis Turpin, but known throughout life as Lee Turpin); and Sanford's World War I Draft Registration card is issued to - and signed by Sanford as - Sanford LEE Turpin (copy posted on my site for Sanford). Not a big deal either way, but I believe for these reasons it is correctly "Lee", not LeRoy, as currently shown on his Find A Grave Memorial. Thanks - and thanks once again for your enormous volume of appreciated photographic work. I really appreciate it!

Would you mind uploading the photo you have in this memorial to Samuel Morgan's at Find A Grave Memorial# 101476950.
I can do it if you wish, I just didn't want to take anything away from you.
I had sent a photo request before I found Joyce's memorial.
Thank you
