Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am currently working on my family tree and my husband's family tree. I apologize in advance to those that I send many SAC's. Sometimes it seems like I'm connected to everyone in a cemetery. I like to get as much information as I can on their memorials, but it is very important to me personally to add maiden names and links. Thank you to everyone who has added information and thank you to those who will in the future.

If you're planning to go to Mount Hope and aren't sure where your family is buried, email me ahead of time and I can send you more information, along with maps of the cemetery. Mount Hope covers a large area and it can be difficult to find a specific burial without a map.

I've completed taking pictures of Mount Hope Cemetery in Webb City, Mo, with the exception of stones added since June 2010, and they are all online. If there wasn't a stone, I took a picture of the space. The pictures that say "space unknown" means I have the block and lot number, but not the space number so I just took a picture of the lot or of an unmarked space in the lot.

I realize that some of my pictures are not all that great, so if you'd like me to try to get a better photo, let me know. If I've made any mistakes or you'd like more information added, just let me know.

Many of the headstone pictures that I've placed on my family's memorials were actually taken by my parents. I have my Mom's permission to use hers and since my Dad's passing, his pictures are now mine. I've created virtual cemeteries for family.

It is not my intention to create duplicate memorials and I try not to but sometimes it happens. Please let me know if I have created a duplicate and I'll remove mine. And I'd appreciate it if you don't create duplicates of ones already on. I am more than happy to transfer management of the memorials I have created unless they are my family. Just click on edit on the memorial and ask for a transfer and include your relationship.

I don't mind sharing the photos I've taken for personal use but I would like to request that others do not take credit for any photos I've taken.

I didn't think your reply was "testy" at all--but I did realize that I should have added a bit more to the SAC I sent to you and others, to the effect that if you were sure the person is buried there, to please add that to the Bios. Thanks again.

Thanks for letting me know that you're sure he's there. Can you add that info after his Bio? That way when I make another list of memorials without pics in a few months I won't send you another similar SAC. He could be one of the Unknowns that I just got through adding, but without more specific plot info it's likely that we'll never know where he's buried.

RE: Suzanna Parke
I am suspicious of one source.....

This source is probably more reliable:

Hi, Laura is at Mt. Hope. Are you related to her at all? I think she is Laura Kennedy, daughter of Louisa Bowling/Bolin and BrownLee Kennedy, both
originally of Belmont County, Ohio. Brownlee is my great-great grandfather. The birthdate matches her birth year in the 1880 census. If you are not related to her or connected, i will probably send for her death certificate and see what it says. Thanks for any help. Nancy Caruthers Karns
