RE: Elijah Finnell
I found a little bit about his death in a newspaper transcript book I have.

Armstrong Herald Friday, Feb 14, 1890
(abstracted by Sherry Raleigh-Adams)

Elijah Finnell, the aged father of James and Cam Finnell, died Monday night at his home in Roanoke, after a few days illness from pneumonia. Burial at Wesleyan Chapel, South of this city. Had he lived until May, he would have reached his 85th milestone. He was united with the Baptist church.

RE: Elijah Finnell
Good to hear from you, Bill. I have another "distance" photo of his stone taken a couple years ago before that sprout grew up. It clearly shows that stone next to his is Nancy Bradsher. Do you have a death date for his first wife? I looked and poked and prodded pretty thoroughly when I photographed the whole cem this year, and tried to check all sides of the obelisks like his, so I'm fairly sure I didn't just miss it. I have added pictures for every stone I found, but it's still only 87%.

Not a problem! I've had a number of those beary-eyed goofs myself!

Thanks for the reminder. I knew about the change but had forgotten. It's wonderful to have all of the stones standing.

I took a look and nothing is showing at this time. Will check again later. That is really great to have it restored. I know you have to be pleased.

Hi Bill,
Just transferred Louvenie Mott to you. I do not have photos of the Simmons in Salisbury but may get up there this week to start the whole cem. I also do not have any photos of the Bailey Cem. I filled in missing memorials from a listing. Sorry!

Very welcome, Bill! I was short on time when I transferred, but wanted to say great detective work on the photo album!

RE: Ernest Sharp
Bill, thank you. If you would like a transfer of your cousin, just send an edit. I noticed that another memorial had been made for him in 2013. I sent a message to consider deletion, as the memorial that my sister made was in 2006 and it includes family links. Also thanks for your comment of liking my quote. I thought of it not long after my sister passed away in 2009. It's so true. Each day does count. And although we left nothing undone, unfelt, or unsaid, we had hoped to grow old together. Loretta

Hi Bill,
Sounds like you've had a fun, interesting time! I think I have all the transfers made. I'm glad to do it and if you come across more you want, just holler!

Hi Bill,
Hope the summer has been a good one for you.

Will you take a look at Laura's memorial and let me know if you think I have it right? As always, I'll be glad to transfer.

I made the changes and since she is closely related to you I will transfer the management to you. If you have any other family in the Riddle Cemetery that I have don't be afraid to ask that I transfer the management. I have a copy of the cemetery records and that is the only reason for almost all of the memorials I have put in. Just to help others such as yourself. I can send you a copy of the cemetery records if you want, just ask.

Mott Cem
Hi Bill,
Finally made it to the Mott Cem yesterday with my sister. Someone had partially cleared the front part, so it wasn't terrible at all. Three stones were completely buried, James Riley & wife Margaret's, and a Stephen G Mott, but not the one you have a memorial for in Mason-Mott. I've added a memorial for this Stephen, and pics for all. The stones are all in good condition, with Joseph's being the only broken one. You should be able to read them well enough to correct and fill in dates.
Also went to Mason-Mott Cem right over the line in Howard Co, which I understand Eli worked in a couple weeks ago. Not many headstones, but lots of fieldstones. If he hasn't added pics yet, I will for any of them that don't have any.
Hope you're having this beautiful spring weather like we are. True Missouri.... 80's today and 40's by Thursday!

Glad to finally be aboard
Thanks Bill! Glad to finally be aboard. I am not very good with these computers or sites but I will try and learn to be better. I want to share all I know with everybody. These sites are great and allow so much sharing of information. The part I like best is it is all for free. I want to go and see the James Riley Mott farm and cemetery as well. Cousin Eli

RE: Welch Cemetrey
Hi Bill,
We're snowed under here so am trying to get lots done on Findagrave. I should have several overall pictures of the Welch Cemetery if you want me to email them to you. I haven't looked, but usually try to take several just for the purpose of people being able to find them in years to come, so I SHOULD have them!
Just let me know if you do.

Hayes, Henson, Smith, Stevenson at Highland Cem., Lawton, OK
I posted the last Stevenson (Ova Mae) photo today. Just thought you'd like to know that Stevenson, Smith, and Hayes with Henson on the backside of it are lined up in a row from south to north in Block 54. My great grandfather's brother married Wilma Faye Stevenson. My grandmother went to Highland with me when I took the photos.

Thanks for your nice comments about the Hayes family grave marker photos I added. I don't know if there's a family connection, but William Henson 76681933 and Olivia Henson 76681930 are on the backside of the Hayes family headstone at Highland Cemetery.

RE: Nancy Elizabeth Finnell Tillerson
I am sorry, it has been so long since I worked on the Tillersons. I did remove the Elijah. I have copies of probate on John T and Martha (Patsy). I am really looking for more information on John L. Tillerson, he is my husband's great grest grandfather. I did not receive your information but I can see my mistake. Thanks for your correction. Karen
