Frank L. Pitts (82795016)
John, I have deleted a death notice on his page and their is a space available for his litho. Thanks for contacting me.

I have a litho photo of Frank L. Pitts from the 1876 Monroe County plat map book. I would post it to his memorial, but photo limit has been reached. If you want me to post it to his Find A Grave memorial, delete one of your obits and I can post it. Otherwise, I can email it to you if you wish.

Thank you for the additional information. I have updated his memorial.
On the left hand side of any Find A Grave page is the heading, Actions. Under the heading is Help with Find A Grave. These guidelines say, "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Please do NOT add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you."

To add an obituary, it must be transcribed and added to the bio area.

Thank you,
Karen Brewer

Hi John, I'll have to double-check the spelling on the gravestones if I get a chance the next time I go back. All of my records are from the gravestones or church records. I appreciate any corrections. Thanks. And thank you for all of those death notices and translations and edits. I think I have them all in now. Jane

It was the memorial for Stephen LaDew, #72971957.

Liberty Tribune
I'm delighted to find that this paper is online - my gg grandfather & Robert Miller established it about 1846. He sold it and went to Fulton to establish the Missouri Telegraph. I have both papers here at home & last year I bought a Microfilm reader/printer. That was up-town until you thoughtfully left a message about the online papers.
Right now I'm writing a anticle about the 5 story foundry in St. Louis where he went to buy type & newspaper. He would announce, "The Telegraph is in new dress today." Then he would give the name of the type etc. The railway came about 1857. He no longer had to ride his horse to St Louis & arrange for the load to be transported home.
Point is: Can you ****imagine**** what he would think of seeing the little blurb I just saw from the Trib?!! He was a forward thinker. I suppose 140 years is a long time.
It is a delight to see. Thanks for posting it.

Mildred (Millie) Cooper Brown
New memorial to her in New Franklin, MO, near the Katy Trail and MO-5, states she is buried on the family farm, near where old Fort Cooper was located. "....She continued to live in Howard County until her death. She is buried on the family farm in central Howard County."

Hopes this helps narrow down the exact location.

Burger cemetery
Yes, John, I did create the cemetery. It appears to be one of those small cemeteries that have become nearly nonexistent over time. Many of them get plowed under or the stones get trampled by cattle and become unrecognizable.
I, too, have tried using Google maps to try to find cemeteries in the past. It works nicely as long as there are enough intact stones and not much vegetation hiding them.
I don't know that I'll be back that way again soon, but I'm putting this in my back pocket and keeping my walking shoes in easy reach!

Many thanks for this additional info. It's greatly appreciated.

Burger cemetery
Many thanks for the info. Rather than adding it to the indicated memorial, I have added it to the cemetery page so it can be seen by anyone searching for the cemetery.
A few years ago, I appealed to someone local there for help in finding the cemetery, but even though that individual said it would be no problem for him, I never heard back.

Scot Stout
patterson / pattison
hello, john. i declined your SACs because i believe patterson and pattison are two different people, both of whom were clerks in the secretary of state's office. the reason i believe this is because the 1886 article states that patterson was a noted correspondent of the new york herald, whereas pattison's obituary doesn't mention this position. i feel that if he was actually a "noted correspondent" of that newspaper, then it would have been in his obituary.

still, you could easily be correct, and i'd be glad to make the changes if corroborating evidence is found. perhaps there is a record of pattison being employed by the herald.

RE: Jacob Brubaker
I did a little digging, and discovered that Locust Grove (aka Old Jacob Brubaker House) was just added to the National Register of Historic Place this month! I found the coordinates for it on their location map. They are: Latitude: 38.574350, Longitude: -78.459030 ...the application also states that the cemetery is still there.
The house was built c1830. A Bernard Stoutemayor bought the acreage in 1819, according to the application, and sold it when the family moved to Ohio in 1831, first to a William Bradley, and then to the Brubakers. It was called Locust Grove because the Brubakers planted lots of locust trees around the property. It was sold out of the family in 1984.There are evidently Bradleys as well as Brubakers in the little cemetery. Hope all this is helpful. Thanks for your interest.

RE: Jacob Brubaker
I don't know the coordinates of that property or even who owns it now. It's just a little private family cemetery back behind the house.

I guess what you have done is fine, unless maybe you could add an explanatory note about the graves being in a private cemetery on that property in the area of Stanley, Va.? Just in case anyone ever wanted to go looking for the site.

Jacob Brubaker
Hi John,

Just fyi--Jacob Brubaker and his wife Elizabeth Bear are both buried in a little family graveyard on the Brubaker homeplace, "Locust Grove," near Stanley, Va., in Page County. The graveyard is back behind the house; their gravestones are the only ones that were readable, as I remember. I visited there several times back in the 70s and 80s when the place was owned by the Whitesell family, who were descended from Jacob. It was sold out of the family by the 1990s I think, but unless the new owners had those graves moved, they are still there.

The two story brick house where they lived was built by a man named Stoutameyer, by the way. I don't remember offhand his first name.

Thanks for posting!
