Bio and Links

I have been working on genealogy since about 1958, when I was working on a boy scout merit badge, and got hooked. My wife and I started recording cemetery data in 1975 in Franklin County, MO, and I have photographed a lot of the headstones. My data on Franklin County is limited to cemetery research. I am a member of the research team at Historic Florissant, Inc., doing genealogy-cemetery research in Florissant, namely St. Ferdinand Cemetery, of which I am currently photographing and doing research. I would be glad to share any data that I have with you or help you with your research in the Florissant MO area.
If anyone should find errors on any of my info, please let me know, so it can be corrected. If I have a memorial of someone related to you, I would be glad to transfer them to you.

A note concerning FLOWERS:
Do not post biographical info, military service records, census data etc. as a flower. This is a violation of the Find-A-Grave guidelines. Use the EDIT tab to provide the info, and I will update the memorial or transfer it to you.

***My permission is given for any headstone photographs to be used for noncommercial purposes; but please give me credit for the photo.***

Leta Sisco Nelson and Jesse Jean Nelson

Hi Andrew,
I have been contacted by two other contributors about her husband Jesse. One almost demanded that I remove him from the Cemetery where he is and put him with Leta. I have called BOTH cemeteries and confirmed he is indeed buried in California.
Always has been.... The problem began with Leta's tombstone, since it has his name on it too.

I have seen other stones with both names and dates, but one spouse really may not be there, WHY this got so crazy is beyond me.
Is there some way you can crop his name?

I also contacted the contributor for Leta to let her know about the confirmation.

Thank you so much....

Thanks Andrew, for your time and effort in obtaining the photo of Leta Mae's headstone as it showed an error in where her husband was buried...In this case, a picture truly is worth a thousand words....Thanks again, Don

Thank you for the information. It is sad, but at least she is recognized on Find A Grave.

Thank you for attempting to get a photo of a tombstone for David. I understand there is no marker available. Will mark my records accordingly. Thanks again for trying. Best wishes.
