Would you be willing to transfer Mary Ruth Arhontis/116085596 to me? She is my Aunt. Also, her brother, Arthur Robert Moore is from that area. Would you be able to tell me if he was buried in this cemetery too? I would like to create a memorial for him as well.

Thank you so much. It makes sense that alonzo and annie manar got married in 1918 because her first husband, Elijah Manar died in 1917 if I remember correctly. I found a marriage license for Elijah and Annie but I didnt have one for alonzo and annie. I did a free trial on ancestry.com but canceled. I found out a lot of stuff, but not really what I was looking for. I was trying to find out about my 3x great grandfather on my mother's side. His wife might not have been white, but I am having trouble verifying it. He left Tennessee somewhat before the civil war and there were family rumors that her purchased a woman and married her in missouri. Supposedly they tried to get in some locations but mixed marriages were illegal in missouri at the time. FInally they got married in one location and then he moved with her to extreme southern iowa where he joined the North in the civil war when all his family in tennessee had disowned him and they were fighting for the south. I have proved his locations and his union army stuff, but I dont know about her. Their names were Hartwell Fitzgerald and Amanda Bowen. ITs quite interesting. A man contacted me online and said he a week or so he will be able to send me a copy of a a sell of amanda to hartwell. One census record states that her race is M and her kids are M and her mother who was living with them was B for race, but someone wrote over all of them with W. Its makes me wonder. I Think their story is interesting.. The part that i know about it.
My dad's name is Stanley. In the 80s he sold bikes and fixed bikes at the house across from the library. A lot of people know him for that.
Thank you so much for your help. I have been looking on all kinds of sites seeing what I can find out about all kinds of people in my family's past. I became interested in my family history when I was a teenager but until recent times I didnt get really that serious about it.

I went to school with your kids. I graduated with Rachel. I recognized your name when I saw it. My dad's family have lived in webster county for quite a few generations and I am trying to untangle my granny's family (the manars/Maners/Manors). In her family her mother had children with 2 or 3 people. 10 of the 11 kids belong to Elijah Manar and his brother Alonzo. Elijah got very sick and when he died his wife married Alonzo. There are distant relatives that claim that the last 3 children belong to Alonzo, but I think really only the last 1 or 2 belonged to him given the date that Elijah passed away. I didnt find a marriage record for Alonzo and Lucy (annie). I got one from webster county for Elijah and Lucy (annie). I have death certificates for all 3 of them and I have seen some from some of their children. Unfortunately I was 4 or 5 when my granny passed away and Elijah, alonzo, and Lucy (annie) were all either dead or died when my dad was a little kids so he never knew them and his mother never talked about them. Lucy "annie"'s maiden name was Bloomer and a lot of records show that she had a son named Robert Bloomer who was born when she was a young teen. He does not show up with them on any webster county census records, yet I found a marriage record for him in webster county. He ended up leaving the county with his wife. My granny at some point at received a picture of him and his wife and their kids. The back of the picture was faded, but on the back I read that he clearly stated that he was her brother and it had the names of him and his wife and the name of the youngest child. The photo was a bit of an announcement that they had a new addition. By this time they were living out of the state. So confusing, but I was happy to receive the picture awhile back, because everyone seemed to forget Robert Bloomer. I know my granny often said that people had looked down on her family when she was growing up because her mother already had a child several years before she married and I guess the social stigma stayed with that whole family given the time period they lived in. Robert was born either in 1893 or 1895 and it was a few years before His mother married elijah and had the next child. I am trying to link them all together. All i can remember is how much my granny loved her siblings. When she was very sick with cancer she took me as a small child to visit the ones in the area. I still remember Aunt Bessie and aunt Verbie and Uncle Charley. Both aunt Bessie and aunt Verbie had great grandchildren who graduated from Marshfield in 1997 with me. Supposedly theose before Elijah and alonzo a few generations back had been Cherokee through one of the women who married into the family and their father supposedly sold some land where the original nation school in the southern part of the family where the manar children went to school. I can not find the record of the info for the original nation school. I contacted the webster county historical society and they are going to let me know if they can find some kind of document or information about it. Also the cherokee thing has not been documented, but a lot of the earlier people to that part of webster county were native americans. I am told that not far from seymour and in wright county you can find indian burial grounds, but I am not sure where they are and I havent gone looking for them. There was also a man who lived in wright county who supposedly hid and aided native americans who were forced to move in the trail of tears through the area. I read this in the book. Maybe thats why some did not make it to arkansas and oklahoma? I do not look native american at all. I know this message is kind of long, but no one knows this story and last fall a zip lock bag of pictures showed up from someone who was married into the family. I was so excited to see them. The people became real to me. Ive contacted other people online who seem to be distantly related but no one so far is familiar with my closer kin. A couple hours ago I found someone who is supposedly a son of my dad's cousin that he never knew because they were not in the area. I am hoping I will hear back. Mostly because I have a picture of his grandparents that he might want. Somehow I have become somewhat a "keeper of the pictures". I have been anxious to learn more because my dad is sick and I want him to find out some things that he wants to know.

Thank you for such a prompt reply to my request for a photo of the headstone of William F. Dodson. It is a beautiful picture. I really appreciate the work you went to. Here in Oklahoma at 100 degrees plus it is hard to get to the cemeteries to take pictures for people, so we appreciate it all the more when someone goes out of their way to help one of us.

|mokennehan||RE: Marshfield Cemetery|
I know exactly what you mean. The weather, the shadows on stones can make such a difference in the image quality. I'm grateful for all your photos and corrections too. Many of my memorials there were created from the old 1979 cemetery book. I don't think spelling was too much of a concern to them.
