Thank you so very much for the photo of Thomas' headstone! Researched this family for a friend and found them to be very interesting.

Cary Cemetery

I see you made it back to Cary Cemetery and found the "lost" tombstones for John Thomas (1790-1848) and his Wife, Nancy Minerva Drake, no less! Thank you again for the hard work you are putting in on this cemetery!

RE: Mary J Griffiths gravesite
Thank you Bill for this info, esp about Higginsville being a coal mining town. It makes sense as my great-gf Thomas Griffiths was listed in the 1900 & 1910 censuses in Lackawanna PA (near Scranton) as a coal miner and also his son George. It was most likely his occupation in Wales I would think.

Thomas & Margaret lost their 3 oldest daughters quite young. Finding Mary Jane's grave is the first success we've had to date about any of them.

They immigrated from Wales in 1880. The photo I attached to Mary Jane's site is the earliest family photo taken of them in 1886. The dates on the gravestone indicate that Mary Jane was the baby in that photo.
We think the oldest child is Anna Griffiths born between 1883-84 and we know she died before 1895 as she is not in the 2d family photo we have of only the parents and the last 3 children.

1) Anna -- (1883?) no birth or death dates yet
2) Mary Jane born 8/2/1885 d. 11/11/1888
3) George Edward born 11/29/1887 in Richmond, Ray County, MO
4)Another daughter (I think another Mary Jane or Anna) born about 1891-1892 (think she died about 1897 of Scarlet fever because my gm remembers being about 4 when she died)
5) Maude Winifred born 4/22/1893 (my grandmother) also in Richmond, Ray County, MO

Just a note of curiosity: Mary Jane was buried in Lafayette county in Nov 1888, yet George was born the year before in Nov 1887 in Richmond, Ray County. And they are back in Richmond by 1893 where my grandmother was born. I don't know much about that area (having grown up in CA) but just wondering if there was coal mining up in the Richmond area as well... Thanks again so much for your help. I will look at some of those other areas you mentioned to try and find the other 2 sisters.

Merry Christmas!

Mary J Griffiths gravesite

Amazing how a date and stamp on an old photograph (1886 Higginsville, MO) can lead to your post on Find A Grave! Our family had no idea our great-grandparents had lived in that area of MO. This is such a wonderful blessing to add to our family search. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! Little Mary Jane was one of three of my great-grandparents children that died young. Only 2, a later born son & a daughter, my grandmother, survived to adulthood. Thank you again and God bless you for this beautiful gift!

Merry Christmas!
Anna and family

PS still looking for their little Anna who may have died close to the time their Mary Jane did...

Norman and Mary Pool
I really appreciate your time and effort in trying to get Mary and Norman Pool burial site for me. It's always a lot more work when there are no headstones or obvious plot areas.
I'm running across this a lot with my poorer relatives and also in the time period in which they died.
Thanks for your help!

Once again I am thanking you so very much for the photos of my 3rd g=grandmother and Martha Logsdon. I have waited a long time for these requests to be filled, and they mean so much to me. The photos are really great and I also appreciate this. Many blessings for the wonderful work you do, and for the time and effort you take to help those like myself who can not do for themselves. Thank you so much.

RE: Key's in Dover Cem.
Thank you for posting the photo of Catherine Key's tombstone. In my trips there, we had not found her stone. The other info is from Missouri death certificates. There may not be tombstones. Ruth

Hello Bill!

("Thomas G. Graves: Findagrave Memorial# 101176587")- Record added: Nov 23, 2012

I don't mean to use your material or comment you wrote, but I didn't know How else to talk about this Cemetery!!

Okay Bill, I do I see this Cemetery, is there someone I need to go to or contact? I would really like to talk to you about the Cemetery and its Location, I was wondering if you saw anything else here that day you visited the Old Cemetery, something that didn't seem to connect with this Old Cemetery. I really want to see this Cemetery and wanted to know how I could do that, do I need you to meet you here or can I just see it by myself???

Thanks a lot for your Time - Bill......

Graves Cemetery

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Cemetery is located high on a hill near the intersection of Howe and Lexington Roads which is off Route O. As you look to the NW from that intersection you will see a single white monument at the top of the hill in a tattered looking group of trees. Moving along the fence line to stay out of the planted field you will come to a path worn between the rock outcroppings that leads to the top of the hill. The hill has about a 15 foot drop on the West side where erosion has eaten away at the cemetery and some of the tombstones have fallen over the edge and are now at the bottom of the drop. It's a beautiful location for a final resting place.
