Re: Eunice Morse Peaker
Good evening.

I was able to check cemetery records and find no record of Mrs. Peaker's interment there. As I mentioned earlier, there is no stone for her. Records indicate that there were two plots purchased, but only one has a burial.

I wish I had better news for you, but I just don't. I'm sorry. I hope that the big stone brings you pleasure in the knowledge that she was well-loved by her husband, Charles.

iagenweb.org confirms my findings.

5-18 PEAKER Charles 19 Nov. 1835 1 Oct. 1901 GAR
5-19 PEAKER

RE: Eunice Morse Peaker
The issue of copying obituaries onto FindAGrave is a touchy one. The FAQs address that question. I have seen it done many ways,and have done it many ways. In your case, for the sake of posterity, I would list the source of your information indicating that she rests at Waterman and who she is and what her story is. She was important to this community, and this information is what we have for now. Then do what your heart tells you to do. <3

Eunice Peaker
Update: I have uploaded a photo of the family grave. Inspection of cemetery records show two people buried at this site. Charles, and Charles W. There is no mention of Eunice, but there is room for her to be there.

We continue to follow with the cemetery board to determine if she is or is not buried with her husband. I did want to share this beautiful stone, though. It's in remarkably good condition with beautiful detail, yet great simplicity.

I will follow with more information as it becomes available.

RE: Eunice Morse Peaker
I forgot to include the source? I'm so sorry! Mrs. Peaker's obituary was published on the front page of the "Sutherland Courier" on January 22, 1920. It can be viewed online at

http://sutherland.advantage-preservation.com/document/sutherland-courier-1920-01-22-page-1

FindAGrave's policies prevent me from posting a copy of the actual obituary, but would happily send it to you via email if you choose. Or you can make your own. :)

We are still working to pinpoint Mrs. Peaker's memorial marker. Her husband Charles' marker is easily found, but not hers. I have a message in to the keeper of the maps, and will follow with those results as soon as he gets back to me.

Col. W F Morse
Hi there,

I am writing to ask for your help in tracing a member of the Morse family.

I am writing a book on Oscar Wilde, the Irish writer.

I am trying to find out more about Col. W F Morse, who managed Oscar Wilde when he visited the US in 1882-3.

Morse is said to have served in the United States Army during the Southern insurrection. Nothing is known about him until 1881, when he surfaces in theatre management. By then (and perhaps earlier), Morse was engaged as an American business manager for the English impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte.

Do you know if this is the same Wilbur F. Morse (1839-1921) who is listed here? I have further research which suggests he may be, which I would be happy to share with you off list.

Any information, leads or ideas would be very gratefully received. I'd be delighted to discuss this further with you.

Many thanks,

Michele

McDuffee
Hi There,

Looks like you and I are on the same road map to the McDuffee history. I am trying to read a history written history by my Grandmother in her hand writing from I don't know when but she passed away in 1977. Her name was Anna Lela McDuffee Baker. She is burried at Mount Tabor cemetery in Macon County Mo. Her father was Joseph A and mother Stella Huffman McDuffee. I can get her back to her 3X great grand father Duncan McDuffee 1774 to 1894 but there is alot of cursive hand writing reading and reading sideways that needs to be done. If you already have done this I would appreciate your notes. If not I would be happy to scan what I have and send to you. I am new to this Find A Grave and history thing so be gentle.

RE: Madison Morse
Just open up the duplicated memorial and above the photo placeholder is a link called "delete" - it's usually in blue. Click on that, it will confirm that you want to delete and say yes or ok.

Mary Morse
The are numerous Porters and Peakers in this part of the cemetery. It is in the old Universalist Church cemetery. I took a photo of a Mary Peakers stone. Appears that she died in 1887?. Is it someone that you need? I did not get the other photos due to time limits but will go back later and take them if you think they are relatives. A lot of the stones will not be around for many more years because they are in very bad shape, mostly weathering.

RE: Manly Morse
Hi Janet,

Please forgive me for taking so long to get back to you. I've been so busy since summer time I haven't had time to catch up on my genealogy. I copied and pasted all the info you gave me on Manly's children to his memorial page. Do you go on ancestry.com at all? I have all the my Morse relatives on my dad's tree there. Here is the link if you want to take a peak:

http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/4569394/person/-460584866

If you'd like to send me your email address I'd be more than happy to send you an invite to the tree. Manly's brother Pearce (not sure of spelling) is who I am descended from.

By the way, thank you so much for all the info you gave me. I used to to update me tree on ancestry.com.

RE: Ann (Taylor) Landree
That is sooo awesome! Such an old stone. Do you happen to know if her husband has a stone - is supposed to be buried beside her. He was Jean Baptise Landree, but when he came to America, his first name became John. He was born in Canada and his ancestors came from France. Interesting family.

RE: Elizabeth Stille Porter
Well, I did the best I could considering this stone was in a bush and I was by myself. If you are ever in the area I can give you directions to the personal property this cemetery is on where you have to go through the gate and up the hill to the middle of the cow pasture to get to this cemetery. I posted a crop of this stone from another general photo where you can see there is no "e" at the end of her name on this stone.

Taylor Family-Mt Zion Cemetery
Just got the message from you regarding the memorials for some of the Taylors in the Mt. Zion Cemetery. I will add the corrections you mentioned. Thanks!

I started the memorials when taking photos of a number of relatives I found there and decided to photo the headstones I could so anyone who would be searching for them would find them available.

If you are kin to the Taylors and would like to have me transfer the memorials to you, I would be more than happy to. I just started them to try and repay the help that everyone as given me
in my research. Please let me know if you would like to take over the management of them.
