Samuel M Curless
Just curious to know if you are a relative of Samuel M Curless (d. 1939) (& wife Margaret Ella)
or if you are just a nice person who put pictures from Loraine Cem. on Find A Grave? Either way, Thank you. I am a direct descendant of Samuel M & Ella, If you are a relative too, I would like to see if we would have any other info to share.

Thomas Cain
It has been a long time since I posted his memorial, so I will have to give you all the possibilities. I visited the cemetery and obtained from marker. I possibly backed this up from info from Jackson county cemetery book. They do have a more recent DVD, but I have not looked at it, so that is not a possibility. I do remember posting an entire cemetery(Sailers) that I stumbled across, but I don't think this is the one. I could be wrong. Since Elizabeth Kennedy Orr is in the cemetery I would say I came across when researching the Kennedy family. I have not been able to figure out why she ended up here, except that there is a Martha Cain married to one of my gggrandparents and she is possibly related this way. I will look through my notes and see if I made any notations about him. Hope this answers some of your questions.
Best regards!

RE: Simons stone
I took a photo of a stone that is about two feet from Margarets but it is unreadable, all other stones close to her stone are readable so it could be his do you want me to post it anyway?

Sister Regulata
Hi! I'm sorry but I don't have a copy of the obituary. It was sent to me but I can't remember by whom. Try checking the paper's website:

Have you tried the School Sisters? If not, write to the

Sister Archivist
Villa Assumpta
6401 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21212

They usually have a complete biography for the Sisters. Good luck!

If I have made correct calculations, Janet's 2nd great grandfather (Mark H Powell) was a brother to my great grandfather (Joshua S Powell).
Joshua married Alice Emma Lowery and had several kids. Their youngest was Leona Anna Powell and she married my grandfather Lloyd Harold Bennett. They had several kids (Lloyd Harold Jr is deceased) and my dad, Jim, was the youngest.
He and my mom are still married. I have one brother.
Most of the earlier generations in my ancestry line had lots of children so there are a lot of 2nd and 3rd cousins out there.
My Bennett line came from England in the mid 1860's. I have a couple of generations documented back in England.
I'm one of the only ones in my closer family that has done any research. My search started with just the names of my grandparents and not much more. I work really hard to document true connections with birth/marriage/death certificates, census info, military records, what-have you.
Anyway, let me know if you have any questions for me.

Thank you for letting me know there was an error for her mother. I've linked her now to the correct mother. I don't know how I made that mistake.

Oliver Roland/Rowland- Concord Cemetery
Hi Rob & Janet,
Thank you for sending along the name information regarding the Roland/Rowland family in the Concord Cemetery in Scotland County, Missouri. I originally had the names listed as Roland. Then I got a message from someone who said the name was Rowland. That is why I have included both spellings.

Thanks, Linda

RE: Olivet Cemetery, in Center Rall, MO
There were several headstones that I skipped because I didn't have the supplies I needed at the time to clean the headstones or the lighting was wrong, etc. However, I think I have some information on your relatives in my files. Unfortunately, I recently moved and my genealogy info is in a box somewhere. As soon as I locate it, I will see what I can find. I will be going back to Olivet to finish photographing headstones just as soon as the weather gets warmer--think March.
