Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many people do not understand our passion for recording graves and cemeteries.
I try to record information correctly, but I make many mistakes. Thank you for spotting them and letting me know. I will transfer ownership if the departed is not directly related to me and wish others to show me the same respect. If you send a request and I fail to respond, please resend the request.
Please do not use my photos for financial gain or publication unless you request first.
I submit those who have gone before us as an honor, a memory to be cherish. I do not wish to hurt or offend. I am drawn to veterans graves, graves of children and unusual gravestones. Findagrave allows me to visit my family's graves within the privacy of my home.
Lost cemeteries and fallen, worn stones need to be recorded for those who follow, searching for their ancestors. If I have helped one person on their quest, I will feel this has not been in vain.

RE: Bogue
Hi there,

Thank you for your dedication to the records!

RE: Willis Erastus Williams
No, not hard to find but the new property owners are very clear that any visitors contact them first because they and others hunt back there frequently and wouldn't want anyone to get hurt. My family lives on a neighboring farm so I've visited a lot over the years, have some ancestors buried there, and doing some research on the families, I will probably be sending more updates and corrections as I find things. Thanks so much! FYI i deleted my pics, someone else took better ones and uploaded them thank goodness :).

Joseph Colin Clark
RE: Lakewood Cemetery
Yes, we are related, but unfortunately it is a distant relationship. We share the same Clark ancestry from the 1600s (Samuel Clark immigrated to Massachusetts from Devonshire in the 1630s), but their Clark branch split off from mine around 1700. They are quite a fascinating family. Edward Clark was Isaac Singer's business partner and mainly the one responsible for the success of Singer sewing machines by inventing the monthly payment plan. He made millions. His descendants become noted art collectors and Stephen Carlton Clark started the Baseball Hall of Fame. His granddaughter, Jane Forbes Clark runs it today. She is something like a 10th Cousin of my father. My research indicates that soon there will be no male Clarks left in this branch. Their wealth seems to have made it difficult for them to have good marital relations and have children.
Also, Stephen Carlton Clark had a daughter (Elizabeth Scriven Clark) who married Henry Richardson Labouisse, a key United Nations official who won a Nobel Peace Prize. When Elizabeth died, Labouisse married a daughter of Marie Curie. The daughter of Elizabeth and Labouisse was married to Marty H. Peretz, who ran The New Republic for many years.

RE: Icarians
Some information from a French dictionary
Born around 1804 in Nantes (Loire-Atlantique), from a family where there were several Icarian Communists was Roiné cartier (designer or playing card manufacturer?). Responding to the call of Cabet, he left Le Havre in August 1854 to join the community of Nauvoo (Illinois). He was accompanied by his wife (born 1817) and their six children, namely a 23-year old son, Cartier and violin teacher; a girl aged 20, a hairdresser; another girl aged 18, Seamstress; two son and a daughter aged 14 years respectively 12 years 1/2 and 9 years old. He also had a financial contribution therefore.
In 1856 Roiné took Cabet party and, like his eldest son, he voted May 12 to benefit the founder of the community. He participated, under the direction of Heggi, development of a venue in St. Louis (Missouri) for Icarians remained faithful to Cabet. However shortly after he asked to leave the colony and was no longer a member in March 1857.
It could be the oldest é R ... St. Louis that sent twice in 1859 substantial contributions (4 and 3 dollars) Libertarian, the newspaper published in New York by Joseph Déjacque (qv).
It does not appear that there is identity Auguste Roiné (qv), probably one of his brothers.

SOURCES: BN, Paper Cabet Nafr. 18149, f. 47; É. Cabet, War of the opposition against the Cabet citizen, in August 1856; Id Nauvoo out of the founder of Icaria with real Icarians, Paris, November 1856.; Icarian colony, September 20, 1854; The Libertarian 5 March 15, June 1859
I hope it could help you !

Bertha Gifford
It may be trivial, but I live in Catawissa, Mo and pass daily by the farm and house where Bertha lived. Catawissa, MO is no where near Morese Mill, Mo. She did live in Morse Mill before living in Catawissa.

RE: Jerris Marler
Thank you again for all your help and advice. I would only ask for direct relatives.I have learned so much about my fathers side of the family already. He grew up in foster homes b/c my grandmother passed a few months before he turned 5yrs. old which happened to also be on my uncle jerris 14th b-day. Its a subject that is too painful for my dad but I need to know at least the names I come from. I have some answers but of course now I also have more questions. hahaha I will def. take your advice and keep the rest in mind. Thank you kindly for all you dedicated work.

Bessie Brazil
Orval was my husband's grandfather. Julia was his first wife. Haven't found an actual marriage record for them, so not entirely sure they were ever legally married. She was 15 years older than him and freshly divorced (haven't found that record either)or separated from her third husband (who died in 1914) when they got together. Her maiden name was Julia Ann Jenkins. They were both from the Mediapolis, Des Moines County, Iowa area. All together, Julia had six husbands. None of Orval's three remaining children from the second marriage knew of this relationship. The first I learned of it was googling Orval Jr. to try to find a story about him being killed in WWII. The adoption record popped up, so then I started looking for info. Bessie was born Evalynn Conn. Found her birth certificate in Stillwater, with Conn mispelled Kahn. Julia must have had a rough time, as Bessie was born in a hospital, which wasn't common back then. Recently, I found a newspaper clipping, which this message won't let me attach, dated Feb. 16, 1914, from McGregor Iowa, that told the story of how Orval & Julia were traveling back from Missouri on charity, each town giving them a meal and a train ticket to the next town, to get them back to Minnesota. They told a heartbreaking story of how they had traveled to Missouri to look for work, which he didn't find. Completely broke, they started to walk back to Minnesota in Dec. 1913 with the baby. Julia wasn't strong and the baby became very ill. They said they "loved the baby as much as any father and mother could" but they knew she would die if she stayed with them, so they gave her up for adoption to the family of John Brazil of De Soto. As Sept. 1914, Orval still hadn't returned to his home in Iowa, as he was listed residence unknown in his brother's obit. But by the Iowa 1915 census, both Orval and Julia were back, living apart, but listing themselves as married. Julia remarried in August of 1915. Orval married my husband's grandmother in 1919. Quite an interesting story.
