Lillie Mae was the daughter of William L Thompson and Sarah A (Elsea) Thompson. Sarah A Thompson, dau Lillie M Brown and dau Lona are buried at Ewing Cemetery in Macon County near the family farm where our family still resides. How are you related to William Elsea? Do you live in Missouri? Have tried to find more information about the William L Thompson family but have had no luck.

Thanks for the edits on Vera Thigpen. Unfortunately, I just now noticed that I have edits in my profile. It's finally done; from now on, I'll keep an eye on that little tab.

I'm still learning about this site....

Ila V. (Elsea) Gordon #79924180
I checked to see where I got Ila's birthdate and apparently it was from her death certificate. It also appears that her birthdate on it is in error because if you use her age at the time of her death (67 years, 5 months and 6 days) it would give her a birthdate of February 12, 1868. I have now included the death certificate info. on her memorial and changed her birthdate to February 1868. Also added a note to the bio. that the death cert. may be in error as to her birthdate. Hope this helps.

RE: Alice Adra Elsea #67134606
Ooops, I am sorry. I forgot they made some changes recently in how a contributor receives edits. The ones you sent were sent to me and left on my contributor page hidden behind the edit tab! I forgot to check there before responding to your message. I just remembered and clicked on it and sure enough there they were. Again, I am sorry. I should have checked since that feature is so new, I just forgot to look there. It has been a long day for me so I guess I had better check my EDIT tab more often. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.

RE: Alice Adra Elsea #67134606
I have added her death certificate info. to the memorial for Alice and changed her name to Alice Adra Elsea. Also changed the birthdate to match the death certificate & obit date along with a note mentioning the different date.

I have also corrected the typing error in her obituary. Check her memorial out again if you like. Yes, you would think the edits would have come directly to me. I will have to check into that as I may have just missed them. Thanks again for the edits.

RE: Elsea Gravestones
You are welcome, Holly. On one side of the big stone was Elsea and on the other side of the stone was the surname Miller. I added pictures for Mary Catherine Elsea Miller #61961475 and Albert L. Miller. #59486816. I found another Albert Lincoln Miller #61961701, on Find A Grave. I tend to add the picture to the page that was added first to Find A Grave when no photo request is asked for.

Mary Arnold & Millie Bishop
Thanks for sending me the info to link appropriate family members for Mary & Millie. Actually, I knew all those folks were related and should have done the link a long time ago, so I'm sorry you had to tell me, but I'm so glad you did since it needed to be done.

Are you related to the Elseas or Bishops?

Thank you for the copy of his obituary. I may add more to his memorial, but won't put the entire thing in, it is just too long. He certainly lived a full and rather impressive life.
Take care,

I changed the name from Henrietta to Bertha and added the tombstone photo to Bertha. Next summer I would like to have my husband spray "Wet and Forget" on the bad tombstones to clean them up so they aren't so hard to read. Thanks.

Hi Holly,
I have double-checked her death date and it is March, not May. I zoomed in on the photo and it does say Mar, not May. I also added a little bit found on this website
that also gives the month as March. A book I have gives her marriage date to Henry as Oct 21, 1878 - she was born in 1860, so couldn't have been married then. If you come up with something that proves this is incorrect, please let me know. Thanks for writing!

I have made the corrections you requested. I suspect she may have been born in Shelby County, Missouri, as was her father but I have to follow up on this. This lady is the niece of my GG-Grandmother, Amanda Elizabeth Colvert.
