Mount Hope Cemetery
Hi Kelly: Did you know:
~ SPECIAL NOTATION: A H Rogers along with W S Gunning purchased first 77 acres of land which is now Mount Hope cemetery, each also on committee of twelve creating the newly created cemetery

"The Mount Hope Cemetery Association" was officially incorporated on April 12, 1905. The purpose of the corporation was to establish a park-like cemetery by laying out and subdividing tracks of land into cemetery lots and to preserve and maintain the cemetery in perpetuity. They funded the corporation with capital stock valued at $30,000. The $30,000 was divided into three hundred dollar shares parred at a value of $100 each.

Prior to this time in the 1840's a small community known as Pilot Grove occupied the site. During the Civil War the property was a formidable position to hold since the land occupied the highest peak in Jasper County. SOURCE: Mount Hope Cemetery

I see you manage Evelyn Hope Collins' memorial (15588927). Are you related to her? She's my great grandmother's sister.

Linda LaRue
Old BuckMarsh Cemetery
Hi Kelly
My husband and I saw your entry for the three LaRew graves at Old Buckmarsh Cemetery in Berryville, Va and decided to drive there to see if we could get photos. We found the marker on Route 340 which designates the old church, and noticed there were some stones that were not legible below. We took a photo of the marker which I will upload to this website to share. Unfortunately, the historical society was closed that day (Monday) and the Berryville Baptist was having floors stained so we were unable to get any additional information. I wondered where you found the information that these LaRews are buried here. I believe Peter is our ancestor via his son Abraham, brother to Issac. I am hoping to verify this lineage. Thank you!

RE: Alva L. Taylor (Mount Hope)
Good afternoon,
I do not mean to bother, you may or may not be interested, but I thought I would share an idea with you because I am really trying to figure this out.

I just came across a death certificate that states, "removal" in the box that is optional for burial, cremation, removal. I had never seen this before so I looked it up. You may already be familiar with this term, but I found that it means the person was removed from the jurisdiction in which they died.

Alva Taylor died in Oklahoma in 1916, so maybe he was not removed from Mount Hope; maybe he is indexed as "removed" because he was taken from Oklahoma, where he died, and buried in Missouri. Especially if his headstone is still at Mount Hope. I could be wrong, but I guess I am just hoping to find him.

Do you have a map of Mount Hope that shows the sections and plots?

RE: Alva L. Taylor (Mount Hope)
This is kind of strange. Do you know when your photo was taken? Is the headstone that you have a picture of still there?

At the Webb City library Alva Taylor was listed in the index for Frank-Sievers Mortuary of Joplin. He died October 12, 1916 and it states he was buried at Forest Park Cemetery. But Forest Park has no record of him. Then I found your picture from Mount Hope and thought the book had a typo. It looks like the search will continue.

Thank you so much for your help!

Alva L. Taylor (Mount Hope)
Hello, I found your listing for Alva L. Taylor (1894-1916) in Mount Hope Cemetery. I was hoping you could help me because I cannot find any records for him. The office at Mount Hope said they do not have a record of an Alva Taylor who passed in 1916, but you have a photo of the headstone. I visited the cemetery last weekend, with no luck. Any information you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. -Jared

Hi Kelly,
I got a shaking leaf today on Ancestry and found the pictures of John Peter Hall you posted here on his memorial. After reading your bio I added them to my page but I also added a public comment that they were posted by you. These were the first pictures I had seen of him and I was struck by how much he and my grandfather looked alike. They were 2nd cousins but I doubt they even knew it.

If you would like to see them here is a link to my page

I have your email addy when we communicated in 2011 but I wasn't sure it was still good. Mine is if you can't get to the pictures let me know and I'll send them to you.

Thanks for all you have done in researching this have helped me in so many ways.

RE: IOOF Cemetery in Monett
I'm not sure this helps but just found it on Lawrence Historical Society website: Some people think the IOOF Cemetery is in Barry County but it is actually in Lawrence County. The county line splits Monett at Cleveland Street which runs east and west. South of Cleveland Street is Barry Co. and North of Cleveland is Lawrence County. The cemetery is located North of Cleveland Street in Monett on Hwy 37, beside the KRMO radio station.

The community of Forest Park was in Lawrence County until it was annexed to the City of Monett in 1934. Although it has grown since then, this is essentially the part of City of Monett that is now in Lawrence County and so until 1934 no part of the City of Monett was in Lawrence County. Anyone living in the City of Monett would have been on the Barry County Census for all the census years up through 1930.

IOOF Cemetery in Monett
I'm searching for a Moore family that is supposed to be buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Monett, MO. Are there two IOOF Cemeteries in Monett? I'm asking because I don't know and there are two listed on Find A Grave. Thanks.
