I do not think so, otherwise her photo would be there. Do you know her name? If they were together I would have take both photos, so I'm thinking not.

RE: steve maddox
I am happy to share any info. My research has focused on the simonis family, without looking at my tree, I believe is the surname for Mr Gilliard's mother. I do not know of Bibles or letters. I would also be very interested in finding them.. I live in Michigan and my Simonis research often takes me to Ohio, where the family originated.

RE: Gist
After receiving your message tonight, I sat down and looked through around 500 pages of notes and documents to find the handwritten mention of Martin. My memory of that entry was wrong regarding mines. That applied to another relative from Montana. The handwritten notes only say that he died during the Civil War at Carthage. I have so much documented and so many vintage family photos that it just runs together.

The state of that cemetery saddens me. We have many historical cemeteries here in Nevada that are in the same situation. I looked at it on Google Earth.

So we shared great great great grandparents (Hiram and Sarah Gist. I lave sought their graves or records of death for decades without success. I believe their last census was in Blue Springs, MO. from 1870. I have what I feel may be photos of them but may never be able to confirm this unless I find a proven photo.

RE: Gist
Steven, IF my memory is correct, there were notes in my family records passed down to me that Martin died in a mining accident near Carthage, MO. What information are you seeking? I assume you have found his grave or are you related?

Added by SSNPOM Doug on Apr 05, 2014 8:51 PM

I will be happy to enter any information you care to send for the memorials you mentioned or any others I might have. You can post photos without having them under your management. Thanks

RE: maddox
I am sorry I have not responded before now. We were in the middle of moving when you wrote, and then the holidays were upon us, and it seems I am just now finding time to take care of my find-a-grave correspondence.
I have looked at the Maddox graves many times trying to decipher what is inscribed on them. The stones seems to be made of a very soft stone, almost like sandstone, and the wear has rendered them nearly illegible. I have purchased a quantity of what is referred to as "rub paper", and as soon as the ground dries from our significant snow and ice accumulation, I intend to go to the cemetery and see if I can get a good enough image with the paper to determine the inscription.
I will be in touch when I have completed that task.
Be Well,

FindaGrave is a great resource; but it wasn't intended to build your family tree. That would be done on, Family Tree Maker, or similar programs.

You should create a virtual cemetery and then add people that are listed on Find a Grave that are in your family tree that are more distant.

On the bottom of the page it gives the option Edit Virtual Cemetery info [?] to add listings to the one you created. When you click on it the first time it will allow you to "create new" and after that you can name it. Each time you access a listing, all you need to do is click on that link and put a check mark in the box provided, click save. (This link will provide more information. Http://

Regarding transfers, Help With Find a Grave reads in part: "Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management...You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have MANY OVERLAPPING FAMILY TREES exist..." .

It would help if you take time to read the FindaGrave guidelines. They have been very helpful to me and are worth reading to make your experience a good one.

I will be happy to add any information or make any links you wish.

Sorry, but I do not understand your notice. Are you asking for transfers?

Added by Delma Ingram on Feb 13, 2014 8:51 AM

fred randall
You can send me an email with the names you would like to manage and I will transfer them. That would probably be best for you if there are several names. I don't mind.

Thank you for the transfer. Your kind gesture is appreciated.

RE: Thank You


I do appreciate your compliment.

I want to say the Stratton's and some others in Carl Junction cemetery were done with the help and cemetery research of fred randall (#47454968). He is very nice about adding photos and sharing his own cemetery research, in whichever cemetery he walks and photographs.

Fred added his tombstone photos, gave me burial locations and allowed me to add the memorials for others that he found in his cemetery research. I did further research and added what I could find.

I wish I could claim all of my memorials are done as nicely as some of these, but I am still working on them as I find time.

I was born and grew up a short distance from Jessie Emily McCorkle Stratton and 2 of her daughter's and a son's home in Galena, KS. I knew some of her children, and I knew and went to Galena schools with some of her grandchildren. I also went to school with some of her McCorkle relatives children.

I enjoyed adding their information.

Thank you again,
