Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 9th generation Tichenor in America and webmaster of The Tichenor Families in America website.
I was raised in Saline County Missouri near the town of Napton, where the Napton Zoar Cemetery is located. I am the secretary/treasurer of the Napton Zoar Cemetery Association. My father, mother, grandfather, great-grandfather, and several other relatives are buried at Zoar.
I assume the responsibility of establishing and maintaining memorials with greatest solemnity and sincerity. I am always interested in making corrections to memorials I have established to ensure an accurate historical record, as well as a respectful presentation.
I am willing to transfer memorials to verified descendants or close relatives (generally, no more than seven degrees of consanguinity. Past that I may very well be as related to the person in question as the person requesting the transfer). I am also willing to make transfer of memorials to non-relatives if the person requesting the transfer is the verified keeper of records for the cemetery where the deceased is located.
I am not inclined to make transfers of memorials that I have established in the Zoar Baptist Church Cemetery (Napton, Saline County, Missouri), as I am the secretary/treasurer and keeper of records for the cemetery and prefer to maintain those records. I am willing to consider suggestions for corrections to records at Zoar. It is always appreciated for any suggestion to be accompanied by a citation of authenticity, e.g. birth or death certificate, obituary, etc. If you make a suggestion for a correction and do not give me some citation or verification, do not be surprised if you get a message from me asking for same. Additionally, if you are the holder of a memorial at Zoar, and you are not related to the person and have no interest in maintaining the memorial, I am willing to assume the maintenance of the memorial if you are so inclined.

Ballinger-Parsons Memorials
Good morning,
Re: Memorial #s: 137927356 (Martha J Ballinger); 46141319 (Isaac Sewell Parsons); 46141319 (Catherine Hill Parsons); 126078844 (Anna M Clutterbuck Parsons).
I realize only Martha J Ballinger has your ID attached, but the others are connected to her. It's possible I might have contributed to this mix-up as I seem to remember that I added Martha's maiden name & I do have Isaac & Catherine Parsons in my FT, although I never added Find A Grave records to Isaac, Catherine, or Flora, but if so I certainly apologize.
Martha J Ballinger and her husband John Henry Burruss are connected to the Parsons family, but as in-laws. Their son Joseph Franklin Burruss, Memorial # 137927390, married Flora Parsons, Memorial# 137927430.
I will contact others who added these Memorials with this same message, and post it publicly.
Again, I apologize for any part I may have played in publishing incorrect information.

RE: Salem Christian Church Cemetery Duplicates

I sent them to edit at Find A Grave to see if they could merge them. That way your info and pictures would be there with my family links.
What do you think?
This cemetery has been a hard one to get corrct info on. Thank you for going there and taking photos.
Happy New Year!

Mt. Zion Cemetery
Hi, I see you posted a photo of Mt. Zion Cemetery in Saline County, MO. Can you give me directions to the cemetery? I am a Primitive Baptist Historian and ran across the photo while searching for information on a minister names Elder Hiram Hoff. I appreciate the work you have put in and would like permission to copy your photograph for my files.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for photographing the Craig-Hays cemetery.My 3rd great grandparents are buried there. I was heartbroken to see your recent photograph of it's sad condition. Just heartbroken. There remain just 9 adult descendants of Charles (that I know of). His surviving son, James, moved away from Saline County as did the care of this cemetery.

John D Stipes

Thanks for what you do for Find A Grave. I have seen many photos of remote cemeteries with your name attached. I have learned so much from Find A Grave that I became a contributor myself.

John D Stipes is my 2nd great grandfather, (and I am not asking for management), I wanted to make some suggested edits. His birth date varies from 5 June 1830 to 10 June 1828. Source Ancestry, Roots Web, and Family Search. Regardless of the date he was born in Harper's Ferry Virginia (now West Virginia). The Slater Rustler published his obituary and list his birth date as June 10, 1828. The published family birth date is in 1828 (Saline County and Slater History books). He died in Slater.

He was married to Ann E Dawes Stipes and had 9 children. He later marred Sue Kirby, she is buried at Slater City Cemetery.

I will work on adding John and Ann to as many of their children's memorials as I can.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Re: Sarah C Yantis Hall and Joseph Hall

I would please like to use the photo you have taken of the stone for Sarah and Joseph for my tree on Ancestry, my FTM.

Thank you for considering my request.

My thanks to all FindAGrave contributors who make my life here in Canada so much easier by providing these photos.
