Thanks for getting back to me. I knew he was married to M. M. after Sarah for a short time before he died - I was hoping that the headstone might give a clue as to her actual name, and I couldn't make it well enough to tell. Too bad. But thanks so much for your help in the matter.

RE: Andrew Jackson Matthews and Loyd Daniel
I have practically pulled out my hair trying to find Mollie's mother. There was an 1880 census that looked like a possibility but the mother would have had to have been 12 when she had Mollie (who was not on the census but looked like Andrew JACKSON was. I noticed on Andrew Jackson's death certificate that it listed his father as JACK (and on the headstone I remember seeing Andrew J for his dad).

Could it be possible that Mollie was only a half sister and was out of the home by the 1880 census. I keep thinking I find a piece of the puzzle and then have to start over!

Thanks again for the info. And btw, I DID post the info from Danny's bio (Loyd Richard Daniel). Several of us have copies of the whole thing. We are not really in touch with his second set of offspring (probably in their 60's) but it would be interesting if they had some stories we don't know about. They would be my husband's half uncles.

Andrew Jackson Matthews and Loyd Daniel
I just found your page for "Uncle Jackson" to my husband's grandfather Loyd (raised by the Shoemakers). Loyd had written an entire autobiography which has had us chasing down all kinds of links and connections. Finding your Find a Grave memorial really clarified and confirmedthings. After all, Loyd was an infant with "Uncle Jacksons" sister Mollie and her husband died and he really had no memories, only what he was told!

If you would like a link to exerpts from his bio that I have posted on Ancestry I'd be glad to send it to you. My ancestry profile name is clandan.

Would you mind if I cut and paste some of the info you have in the memorial to my ancestry pages?

Best regards,

RE: Unmarked graves
Thank you - I am very grateful for any assistance. Looking for my Great Grandfather Charles P. Countryman - DOB 1854. We believe he died between 1900 and 1910 based on information my Great Grandmother listed on the Census. We have never been able to find where/how. This is kind of a shot in the dark - but I remain hopeful.

Thank you again.

I am researching information about my Great grandparents - Charles and Cora Countryman who lived in Thayer, MO from 1885 - 1941. Someone had indicated that Nellie's maiden name may have been COUNTRYMAN - do you happen to know where that information came from? Thank you for the photos - they make great additions to my family album.

Missouri Ann Rideout
There seems to be a major confusion with Missouri M Jones and Missouri Ann Rideout!! Did james E Vandiver marry two different women named Missouri? Have you ever come upon these two records? Missouri A Born in 1868 died in 1897, As it says on the tomb stone, but Missouri M Jones age 49 married James E Vandiver in 1907!!! Anyway I just wonderedif any one else had noticed the differing dates and middle initials!!!

Thomas Buster Ball
I just thought I would give you some additional information on Mr. Ball. Ida is his second wife. His first wife was Lillie M. Stratton - they were married in Lawrence County Arkansas on 3-9-1902. She died 6-25-1906. As per their marriage license and the Windows to the Past: Burials in the Western District of Lawrence County, Arkansas 1835-2000 Volume 2: Imboden-Ravenden-Annieville (East), pg 17.

I do genealogy research and this is my husbands aunt (his mothers half-sister). I just thought it might help others that are researching their family history.

Nancy Courtney Reynolds
Hi Larry and Susan,

I am almost certain that Nancy Courtney Reynolds (Find A Grave Memorial# 106252351) is my 3rd great grandmother. Your memorial is the only record of her death that I can find. Where did you obtain her death date? Is this from Marion County Illinois death records or Peaceful Valley cemetery records?

Thank you in advance,

Dan Alcott

Would you please corrector the name of Joseph Gamel's mother. We can't not find where she was buried so she does not have a site on Find A Grave but you have her name wrong in the bio. Her name is Malissa Charlotte P Rapert. Thank you so much for adding his name and information it helped me a lot in researching my family.

Jacob Washington Rethard Memorial
I was reviewing the FindAGrave entries for my family and (finally) noted that your memorial for my grandfather is redundant: it needs to be combined with #40416503, which is somewhat older, if less informative!

Susan -

Actually, I think some one cleaned the stones at McClelland Cem.

Take a look at the Barnhart babies' memorials there. I added an overview pic showing all four of the stones. I tried checking the 1900 census for Alice hoping we could learn who the parents were. Also check the online marriage index but no luck either places. I'm afraid they will have to remain orphans.

RE: Daughter Bopp
Hi Susan -

I'm sorry, I should have labeled the dates in the index info. The date of death was "1918-01-28" or 28 Jan 1918, the same as the stone. The other date "18-01-29" or 29 Jan. 1918 was the date the death cert. was filed. The birth date does not appear in this index, though sometimes an age is listed, where the "UNK" is. Sorry for the confusion.

True, Find A Grave does not include townships in the drop down place names, so if I know a location was rural and I have the township, then I usually simply put "Died in Xxxxxxx twp." in the bio section and with the state and county in the death field using the drop down. That way people won't assume the person died in the town where they are buried. I do the same for births. That's why I said in the previous message you could add it to the "bio section".

I see you deleted your memorial for Jennie Basola. Thanks.

"Daughter Bopp" # 84748466
Baby Bopp has been identified! Found in the IL online death index:
BOPP HELEN MARIE F/W UNK 0034331 1918-01-28 MARION CARRIGAN TWP 18-01-29
I submitted an "edit" for her.

So you could add "died in Carrigan Twp." to the bio.

I've added a picture, but there is no way to make out her name on the stone.

Thanks for making the change.

I also have information on Missouri State Death Certificate #10855 for Mallie H Smith, death date 9 Dec 1831 and May S Rhea, Thayer, Missouri signed the certificate.

I have based my information on the sources I gave you yesterday and this death certificate.

May S Rhea # 90014208
I do not believe that May is the daughter of Commodore Perry Smith and Martha Helen Miller.

The 1900 census for Alton, Oregon, Missouri shows May and Calvin Rhea with sons Yelverton and William, also in that household is Mallie H Smith listed as mother in law of head of household.

Mallie H Smith was Melvina H Mathews, daughter of John Garner Mathews and Mary Hudson Kennedy. She was married to Yelverton Smith - May's son was Yelverton Rhea. Mallie was my 1st cousin 2 times removed.
