Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I are currently working on my family geneology. Many of my elder relatives have died, taking with them a tremendous amount of unknown and undocumented history. We have many regrets and have vowed to locate and document what we can now, before it's too late. We spend most of our free time in cemeteries or locating records (but also fit in camping and fishing trips). We are still fairly young, still working and have a young son, so we don't get as much time as we'd like to focus on these interests. An additional passion of ours is to reclaim our forgotten and neglected pioneer cemeteries, so we spend a lot of time re-erecting and/or locating headstones and cleaning cemeteries. We enjoy photographing cemeteries as a way to help others and to preserve this history for future generations.

RE: Memorial# 41478193
Thank you so much!! You are amazing. I am 2134 miles away (WA state)and was trying to convince my wife that a 35 hour one way drive really isn't that bad. The fight with a two hour lay over in Denver wasn't going over very well with her either. Yes, I've been going crazy on this one.
My ancestry profile name is fivereeds5. I have added all of Washington Williams' civil war records there, along with his death cert. Feel free to take a look. I also check my e-mail/messages on there all the time.
Thank you again. Please let me know if you are able to make it out that way and have a another look. If there is anything I can do for you, just let me know.

Memorial# 41478193
Judy and Steve, I'm hoping maybe you or someone who lives near Stark cemetery aka Cook cemetery near Plato MO can help. The referenced Memorial is for W. Williams of the 31st inf. I believe this is Washington Williams, born 25 Sept 1834, died 8 Apr 1920. He is my wife's great grandfather. I have very good documentation regarding his service with CO A in the 31st MO Inf. Amazingly he survived the entire war fighting alongside his brother. There appears to be only one other W. Williams in the 31st and he was in CO D and died/buried in Georgia. Washington lived in this part of Laclede and Texas county. His death cert states he was buried in Cook cemetery. So I'm pretty sure this is him. I am looking for his wife Tabitha. She passed after 1930. I'm wondering if her grave might be next to his in Stark cemetery. If it is, this will not only help my research but also help to confirm that this memorial is his. Is there a way for someone to visit this site?
Thank you for taking the picture and posting this memorial.

I had a memorial transferred to me because he is family and I can add info to it. I now notice you have Find A Grave Memorial# 41481241 which is the same realitive. Although yours was entered a month before mine, would you please consider removing yours so my realitive stays in my possesion.

Thank you for your consideration.

Casey-Dugan Cemetery
Hi, I noticed that you had gone there to photograph a gravesite, and I was wondering if you had a list of everyone who is buried there or do you know if the cemetery has an official contact number?

I am looking for someone in that cemetery, but this site doesn't have them listed.

Judy & Steve,

I believe this to be Louisa B. (Dorris) Emmerson, my great-grandmother, b. 04 Jan 1853 d. 03 Feb 1881 buried at Emmerson Cemetery, Wright, MO. In 1875 she married to William Franklin Emmerson, in Wright, MO. She died after giving birth to Annie Leora Emmerson and Frances Udora Emmerson. Frances died shortly after birth and Louisa died a few hours later. Louisa and Frances are buried in the same grave.

Mary A. (Dorris) Emmerson, b. 04 Jan 1846 d. 03 Apr 1874, was her sister, who was also married to William Franklin Emmerson. Dora and Rubanna are the children of William and Mary.

William Franklin Emmerson is buried in Star Cemetery, Star, Ada, ID with his fourth wife, Margaret Sophronia Hutsell.

Thank you,
Richard Bennett
