Bio Photo If you want to me transfer a memorial to you, INCLUDE YOUR CONTRIBUTOR NUMBER.

When I started researching my family history in 2009, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I have found that this is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding activities. I love that "AH-HA!!!" moment when you stumble across a headstone that you were looking for but didn't know exactly where it was, the death certificate that you accidentally find, and gettinng to know who you are by learning where you came from.

Family names that I am currently researching: Jackson (obviously), Lemons, Moore, Yount, Gilliland, Talley, Long, Killian, Abernathy, Fulbright, Mayfield, Rhodes, Williams, Sitze & Watson. If any of these cross your own genealogical path....let me know, maybe we can help each other out.

I don't mind transferring memorials as long as they are of closer kin to you than they are to me. I also don't really care how you request the transfer...whatever is easiest for you, just don't forget the name of the person(s), their memorial number(s) and your own contributor ID.

Thanks to all that have and continue to transfer my family to me. It is very much appreciated!!!

RE: Okie Kimbrough
Well that is still a mystery. The Social Security death record which I found on has these dates: born Nov. 27, 1892 and died April 1984. So that is different than the cemetery records which state she was born Nov. 27, 1893. It also stated her last known residence was Advance, Stoddard County, Mo. I don't know what to suggest?
But whatever you decide is fine with me. Ruth Smith

Okie Kimbrough
Today at the Jackson Missouri Historical Archives, I looked for Okie Kimbrough at Cape County memorial Cemetery and she is not listed there. There is a picture of her grave at the Balch Chapel Cemetery at Zalma, Bollinger County - are you sure she is not buried there? The dates are the same. I am attempting to take pictures of the 154 requests at Cape County memorial - if you think she is buried there, would you have any idea where? The lady in the office out there told me on the phone that "she cannot look up any burial for me". So what to do?
If your memorial page is a duplicate, could you transfer your information to the one in Bollinger County? Thanks for your help. Ruth

RE: Ida Lemons
Hi Erin, Yes, Greg is a first cousin, once removed. His grandfather, Raymond 'Buck' Buttry, and my father, Willie 'Bill' Buttry, were brothers.

Also, her death cert. #7191 says she's buried at "Sands Cemetery". ???? Under cause of death, it says something like "this party had no physician and facts are stated by son" Hmmmmmm......

Hi, Erin. I noticed there are 2 Find A Grave memorials for her--yours and # 97100869, created later. Yours says she's at Memorial Park Cemetery; the other one says she's at Dogwood. Which is correct? The other one also has her son William Fred Ferrell listed... will you let me know how this is resolved, so I can let other relatives know? Thanks. Lynn

Esther Gregory Shirrell
What was Esther's middle name? There is an Ester V. Gregory on the Berrong Cemetery map. Could this be the same woman?

RE: Joseph Looney
Looks good and thanks for the additional links to family members. The headstone of his wife was apparently added much later than at the time of her death. I knew a couple of descendants of Joseph Looney and they looked long and hard trying to figure out his ties to the extensive Robert and Elizabeth Looney family of 1742 Botetourt Co, Virginia. As far as I know they still have not figured it out. Thanks for the update.

REYNOLDS headstone
Hi Erin,

I have been out of researching genealogy for months due to ongoing family health problems. However, I am getting back into it.

I have a photo request for you, if you have the time: My great-great-grandfather James Reynolds, buried at St. John's United Church of Christ in Fruitland. (

Thanks, and hope you're doing well.

I have these in my family tree.

Have you checked the "Shoe Cobbler's Kin" books by Lorena Shell Eaker? If you're near Marble Hill, MO you can look at one at the Bollinger County Library. If you already know this, my apology.

Pleze Randolph
I just visited Hall Church cemetery. It is much more overgrown than the picture on the website.
I was able to get the birth and death dates off of Pleze's stone.
