I noticed you had a virtual cemetery for Centenarians. Here is one to add to it.

Hilda Smidt # 104470164 She was by neighbors mother.

Hope all is going well with you. I am not ready for winter.

Isaac Atkinson memorial stone
Dear Carolyn,

Thank you so much for the memorial stone. I was going through my memorials and saw it. This verified that his wife was there also. I have changed her plot of UKN to Maxwell Cem.

The picture is just perfect.

Thanks from another Carolyn, have you noticed, our name is starting to become familiar again?

Woodland & Peoria cemetery

I recently found these 2 websites. I do not know if you knew about them. They contain burial records with plot information. for the Woodland Cemetery. for the Peoria Cemetery.

I found these thru the City of Maxwell website.

RE: Just Checking In
Carolyn, I is good to hear from you again. I am so sorry to hear about the unexpected death of your sister. Yes, it does have an effect on the entire family. I haven't lost one of my siblings but did lose one of my son's in a truck accident just before his 21st birthday. I am so thankful, and find great comfort, in knowing Heavenly Father's plan for our eternal family relationships. I wish you and your family the very best. I hope this Christmas will be a joyful one despite the lose of your sister.

Carolyn, Wondering how you are doing? I haven't heard from you in awhile and hope that your health has been okay/better. Me, I am still working on the French family genealogy and have some requests out for tombstone pictures. If you get a chance I would love to hear how you are doing.

Emily's Chapel Cemetery
Have just recently found the Find a grave website. Came across your post about Ray Lucy and Ollie Lucy being at Emily's Chapel Cemetery. They are buried at Bowles Cemetery at Sabula, MO. I know, I have visited there my whole life and have family there. There is no public access to Bowles Cemetery any longer. The cemetery is on a privately owned farm still owned by the Bowles family, I think. I am from the area and we do know how to get there through private access. These are the Lucy family members I have transcribed from their stones.

Ray A. Lucy
June 3, 1887
May 4, 1967

Ollie E. Lucy
June 29, 1890
Oct. 26, 1966

Orvel Lucy
Mar. 25, 1911
Sept. 25, 1935

Hope this helps.

French Family Tombstones in Maxwell
You took a great picture of both Kathy and Larry French and Russell and Iva French in the Maxwell cemetery. Would you be willing to send me a jpg copy of the picture and give me permission to use it for other Find A Grave entries and Ancestry? It is a great shot!!!

RE: Picture of Atkinson memorial
Yes, I would. The Atkinsons were large in reproduction, and moved around a lot, but they came back to Story and Jasper Counties. My husband is a descendant of the Isaac Henry you pictured for me.

Since I do not know who they are, if you make Find A Grave memorials, may I have transfer ownership of them?

RE: Grave stone photos
Carolyn, By any chance could you get a close up of the Kathy and Larry French headstone what has the information for Maribeth and Barbara. That would be perfect. Thanks for everything you do and have done.

Carolyn, This is the grandfather of one of my close friends from high school, Maribeth French Pollard. I can't tell you how you've helped. We lost Maribeth a few year back and I've always wanted to do something for her. You are making that possible as I piece together a little bit of her family history. Thanks can't say what is in my heart.

RE: So so sorry
Dear Carolyn,
Thank You so much for your message, and for visiting Mom...well, I have written about it enough for most folks to know that our family life was so dysfunctional - I tend to keep some things to myself, though, and many did not know much about my mother's situation and so the news seems to have really rattled folks. I can only say, as I note on her memorial page, that no matter the dysfunctions, the trials, whatever - Mom was the one who kept our ragtag family together; she is the reason that I have the belief that I can write (and therefore make a decent living for my son's well being), and that life with her was fascinating, annoying, tragic, funny, wonderful - I owe her my life, in many ways. I am going to miss her so much, but I know that she just ran singing toward Dad and Ron, and I am so, so happy for her. I will be back online - if this year of crisis EVER ends, I can't believe the last eight months -, and I will catch up with you more asap. Gannon and I hope that you're feeling ok - oh, a little story. The day we lost Mom, an expectant Siamese cat jumped my patio fence and promptly went into labor...I am now the proud mother of a mother cat and four babies. Mom loved cats, and Gannon and I knew right away what to christen her - Jeannie. =) Lots of love, Me and Gannon Blue

Galyean family
Hi Carolyn

My relationship to the Galyean family is through my great-aunt, Nova Lecy Puryear, who was married to Eura Preston Galyean. says Ruth Jennie and Eura P. are 1st cousins.
My Dad's family is from Benton Co., AR and includes, Puryear, Roughton, Turner, Bates, Gailey and Galyean.
Each time I click into a reference from Findagrave, I leave flowers at the memorial to show that the person has not been forgotten.
Thanks for your message.

RE: Hey =)
Dear Carolyn, I was just thinking about you...We are okay, just still doing so much medical stuff re the referral to LA or Diego area that people literally can't believe it...Gannon had two appointments yesterday, and after his were through, I had one, and then we had spins (blood work) this morning - yarrrrr, it gets frustrating. But we are still holding our own and maybe even making a couple of steps forward; my book is still moving forward and it finally quit hitting a hundred in the shade here. Yay! I hope that you're doing all right - I haven't been over to your pages in awhile (I really have, admittedly) been ignoring my own flowering, sincere apologies), but I'll try to get by before the end of the week. Take good care and we'll talk again - Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

Hey Carolyn,

Didn't know you were on here! I see you have my great great grandmother, July Ann, listed as buried in Salem Cemetery, Arkansas and there is a photo request. They were unable to fulfill the request because they couldn't find the grave. Where did you come up with this info?!! I'm so curious!!

Thanks, Terri Gill

RE: Lucy
I'm not sure. I will check it out. My brother goes down to the cemetery a few times a year so I will ask him to look. I have pictures but mainly of the Lewis and Dunns. I meet my cousins next week some of the older ones might remember Carl Lucy. My dad was born in 1930 so I'm sure he knew him but daddy died in 1994 and my uncle his bestie died two years ago and he would of remembered. My cousin lives near Ironton in a town called Graniteville, MO (it's a dead town too). Anyway there is some Lucy's there that own a car garage! Ill ask my cousin about them. I will let you know what I find out!

Hi Carolyn, I was checking my site and ran across your question about your family. My great grat grandfather donated the land for Emily's Chapel Cemetary. It was named for my great great grandmother. It used to have a church named Emily's Chapel next door but is is long gone, my family is Lewis' and many are buried there including my daddy. The Cemetary is located on a old road off of hwy 21 between the bigger towns of Ironton and Annapolis. The road (I cant rember the name) is on the right about a mile from Sabula. you drive that road for awhile and then it turns to the right onto a gravel Road. You go over a low water bridge and drive some more and then you will see a Sawmill on the right, the cemetary is on the left very hard to find. it is not marked anymore. my brother goes up there on occasion and cleans it Up. it is a low hill a a bigger hill, the bigger hill is the the first part of the cemetary the left is more recent. i know there is Lucy's buried. i live in Alabama now but Missouri will always be home. nobody runs the cemetary anymore. there was a tornado a few years ago that ran right behind it so it looked like a road was made there. My dad was good friends with the Lucy Boys. i remember him talking about them, unfortunetly my uncle Roy the only one that would remember them has dementia. the rest of my aunts and uncles have past away. i will see if anybody in my family is going down there and I can ask them to look around. a lot of people dont relize there is two parts to the cemetary. Sabula is a dying town. In its hay day my great grandmother ran the post office, there was a store ran by a man with the last name Huggins. It is now a house that is falling apart. As a little girl I lived in Sabula off the main road. Hope this helps in some way.
Sincerely, Dawn Lewis Clay
