Bio and Links
Bio Photo We have noticed that some people load photographs on Find-A-Grave and post a message saying they are not to be used without permission. PLEASE use the photos we submit if you'd like! That's why we put them on here!!

This whole thing got started with her making a comment that she knew nothing about her family. It has now gotten TOTALLY out of hand!! We have now surveyed every accessable cemetery in Harrison and Mercer County, Missouri and researched those that are not accessable. Now we're starting to photograph them. We have submitted the surveys and photographs to the county GenWeb sites.

We enjoy tracing the "roots" and various limbs of our family trees, and are often surprised at the nuts that fall out! She seems to be related to EVERYONE. Him...not so much. We also enjoy helping others in their search! So if you have connections in either of these counties and have requests for cemetery photographs or obituaries, please let us know. We're not professionals, but we're not too bad at it!!

If we "manage" a memorial you are interested in or are related to, we'd be more than happy to transfer it to you! The exception would be if it were one of our own close relatives, then we'll probably decline the request.

Have fun!!!

RE: Ruby Goodman
I am still looking for marker of Hugh Goldsberry in Section 52. It was not near the others. Did you notice I found the marker for Ernest B Goldsberry (b 1900, d 1947)? Doug

Hi Phil and Kathi,

Thank you for following up on my request for stone photos. It appears that they and their two young sons, Duane and Floid never had stones even tho their death certificates say buried in Goshen Cemetery. And--no doubt vandals probably removed any markers left by the funeral home. I do appreciate the time you have spent to check this out. Thanks!!

Elvena Beeson Photo
I just wanted to thank you for taking a photo of the grave of Elvena (Westcott) Beeson. The stone is obviously sinking, and I've seen and photographed enough of those to know that it sure doesn't take long for them to disappear entirely. I have saved the photo to my family tree, so at least there will always be a visual record of it.

Like I said, I have photographed a few thousand tombstones, and sometimes we forget what we're doing will "save" these stones from totally disappearing.

Just wanted to thank you again.
