RE: Bottemueller link request
You're right, of course.

In my mind I accepted that the dates on the memorial were wrong. The February 4th as date of death for both the memorial and the individual I was referring to...the fact that 1820 and 1870 would look similar on an old stone...and the fact that the age at death was right all seemed too significant to be ignored. When I get some time I'll try to check it out further and then see what Andrew has to say.

thanks for your reply!

Hi. I believe that Katherine Miller Wilson (married to James Wilson and mother of William O Wilson, daughter of Daniel and Anna Miller) was the sister of my great great grandmother, Harriett Miller Wilson Scott. I also believe that Harriett Miller married James Wilson's brother Frank Wilson prior to her marriage to Benjamin Franklin Scott in Boone, Franklin Co., Missouri. Frank Wilson and Harriett Miller Wilson Scott had one son, William "Bill" Wilson who was later adopted by B.F. Scott. Harriett Miller married Frank Wilson January 1870 and then married B.F. Scott in 1873. Also I was wondering if James Wilson was the brother of John Wilson who married Sabina/Arenna West. Was their father John Wilson who immigrated from Ireland and settled in Boone, Franklin Co., Missouri? Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. - Kim Mahone BTW the James and John Wilson farms are only 3 miles from Daniel and Anna Miller's farm.

Gregory Cemetery
Hi Judy,
No problem with transferring the McCallisters. My interest was the Greory's and Bells. Thought you might like to know a bit more about this beautiful little cemetery.

Gregory Cemetery

Directions: From Gerald, MO take Highway H. Turn left on Shotwell Road,
It's Springfield Road to the right. In a mile you will see the remains of the Shotwell general store, another 2 miles and you will see the Gregory cemetery on your left.

Caretaker: Ray Farrell
15 W. S. Street
Gerald, MO 63037
(573) 764-3737

Interview Ray Farrell, April 2005: In 1963 this old lady got me involved with cleaning up the Gregory Cemetery. She explained how I was related to the Farrell's who are buried there but I no longer remember how. We took out 15" trees from among the graves. We took out a cedar tree that had been planted to mark the grave of gypsy child who was buried there. The area was once a gypsy camp. Once cleared, the community cleaned it before each Memorial Day but that no longer occurs. At one time Bell kin from Sullivan, MO had the graves placed in concrete and laid flat on the ground to preserve them.

The cemetery has a trust and is seeking donations for upkeep after Mr. Farrell is no longer able to do it. He is 68 years old. The cemetery was created in 1820. Until recently it had a Board. Some of the people involved in the 1960's were: Ruth Schmidt, Edna Fickey, and Nancy Bolls. A trust funded the upkeep of the Cemetery. Original foundational documents are kept in a safety deposit box. They had to show the deed to the cemetery recently because the farm upon which the cemetery sits changed hands. Mr. Farrell does not know the connection of the Gregory's to the Cemetery but I suspect that they set up the trust and donated the land.

Interview Robert I Butler: My grandfather Henry Butler and Grandmother Elizabeth Franes Denier Butler and my G. Grandmother Nancy Moreland Butler are buried there, as is my G. G, Grandfather Jacob Immell. The only other person with whom I have an acquaintance is A Moman and wife Mary I believe, and their daughter Mary, Moman was first married to my G.Grandfather Samuel T. Butler's sister Phoebe Butler.

Your Bell relations are interesting. In the 1878 Atlas Map (available in the 4-Rivers Historical Society headquarters and book store, you will read about John and another Bell settling on the Missouri River about 2-3 miles downstream from present day Washington. This John Bell was witness to my g g gf, John Butler's, will. His farm bordered on the east side of the principle meridian.

That's all I can contribute. I can remember as a lad the funerals of my Butler Grand parents. I remember in particular that his funeral was during a pouring down rain but the venerable model-T's and Model A's ploughed right through. Mr. Farrell has my name since I contribute to the upkeep. Not many do and I worry that there will be no contributors and the cemetery will become a weed patch.
