RE: Memorial #72069126
Thank you--I see a lot of people have also listed William as a son of Leo and Julia, but I can't yet find any evidence for that. I'll keep on the hunt.

I appreciate your response.

Memorial #72069126
Hello, I am trying to find evidence that this person was the son of Leon Twyman and Julie Ann Paine. Can you tell me how you know his middle name was "Paine"? I would appreciate any tips.

Concerning the children, I can list them, but I cannot add them since I did not create their memorials. The person that created their memorial would have to add the parents.

I made the changes you gave me. There is an Olive (1879-1933) and William (1874-1954) in the Greenwood Cemetery. They are not old enough for Parents, so are they related? I also love Genealogy and work on the history of this area. Do you know there history while here in Wyoming?

Thanks
Michael

I was at this cemetery today and added some photos. I also created memorials for Daniel Higman and Hazel Higman McCoy. I noticed that you had left some virtual flowers and information on the existing memorials, so thought you may be interested.

Hi Karen,
I am also a descendant of Othniel Murray and noticed that you had left flowers for his Find A Grave memorial. In the hyperlink of his wife, Katherine (from Sweden), you listed her full name as: Katherine Jessie Laweaney.

How did you come about this information and can you please share your source? Many Murray researchers have been trying for decades to determine Katherine's family name. Thank you very much.

Cheers,
~Gail

Karen-Thank you for your information for Sarah Snook. I added it to her memorial. I am not for sure where I obtained the information I had on the memorial in regards to her mother. I always appreciate any information you may have for me to add.

Hope all is going well in your world!

Davis-Smith Cemetery Commemoration

The Davis-Smith family cemetery, located at 12017 East 350 Hwy, Kansas City, Missouri (in a field between the east- and west-bound lanes of M350 Highway, along Westridge), is an extremely historic quarter-acre parcel of land. Buried there are some 40 individuals, including: a Revolutionary War soldier; three young girls killed needlessly in a Union prison collapse in Kansas City in August 1863 (150 years ago this year); Civil War soldiers from the Battle of White Oak Creek; and some of the prominent Jackson County pioneers who led interesting and quite harrowing lives!

Today is dedication day for this cemetery. Find-A-Grave has the listing as Smith-Davis Cemetery, while the Jackson County Historical Society refers to it as, Davis-Smith Cemetery.

I would love to see the cemetery page have the above description included.

In Addition: RAYTOWN HISTORICAL SOCIETY & MUSEUM refers to the cemetery with the same name that is now listed at:
Find-A-Grave - Smith-Davis Cemetery

We are in the third year of celebrating the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.

Significant events occurred in our area during 1863 that would change lives forever.

On August 13, 1863 a jail in downtown Kansas City collapsed and killed 4 women including the sister and wife of men who were Southern sympathizers and fought with William Quantrill. These women are buried in the Smith-Davis Cemetery in Raytown between the east and west lanes of 350 highway just east of Westridge.

This led to the Quantrill raid on Lawrence Kansas on August 21, 1863 as retaliation for this event as well as the continued raids into Missouri by the notorious Jayhawkers. These Jayhawkers had continually raided into Missouri burning homes and destroying crops.

These events led to the issuance of Order No. 11 by Union General Thomas Ewing on August 25, 1863 which forced Southern sympathizers to vacate their farms within certain areas of 4 western Missouri counties including Jackson County.

Kate Harris - deleted
Hi again - no not related, but I did create several memorials in that cemetery after reading some of the history. I would like to send you what I found. It's a bit much for the message board, but I can post it, then if you will copy & paste it into an email to yourself, or into a word document, you will have the information for your files. Afterword, you can delete it from your message board. You will see that I tried to get a change done on the cemetery name, but F*A*G* never did respond.

James Greene
Fristoe, Constable, Greene
Hello,

My name is James Greene, once of Pleasant Hill Missouri & now, of Overland Park Kansas. My grandparents, Artie & Alice Constable Greene are buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery & according to family legend, the Constables were related to the Fristoe's, how I am not sure at this time.
However, I have just learned of the Talley's in Lee's Summit also being relatives of the Fristoe's & the woman who wrote me, mentioned a cemetery close to the intersection of Colburn Road & Douglas in Lee's Summit Missouri, or on the grounds of Unity School of Christianity. I once worked for Unity, so I may be able to make this connection with the cemetery there, but when did you first learn of the Talley Cemetery & where do you believe its located? I have a hunch where this cemetery is & as the snow disappears, I will go out to Unity to investigate.

You can reach me directly at jamesgreenekc@gmail.com

Sincerely,

James R. Greene

Hi My name is Roland Beebe and I am historian for the Milford Lions Club. Frederick C. Higman was a member of this club from 1947 to 1962. I have found an article from the Milford Chronicle on his death in 1962. He was very active during his service with our club from the records I have read. Serving as President in 1961-62, Secretary from 1949 to 1958 and served on a number of committees. Were you the one that added the information about Guy Lombardo and if so where did you get the information. We getting ready to honor him with Lions International Lions Grave Plaque and that is why I am asking for your help.

Thank you,

Saw your note about these babies. I have an obit for Wm. Otho Ashcraft that mentions nine children, seven of which were living at the time of his death. These could be the two missing children. Wm. & Elizabeth St. Clair Ashcraft are buried in the Concord Cem. Any thoughts?
