Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in the history of my ancestors & my husband's ancestors for many years and have visited many of their graves over the years. I enjoy doing research on family members as well as others. It makes me realize how short life really is and how we should leave a positive footprint here. But most of all, how important it is to be prepared to pass from his life in a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

I also love my town of Kirksville, Missouri, and enjoy studying its history and the people who made its history. I feel privileged to be a member of the board called Friends of Forest-Llewelln Cemetery in Kirksville, and also a board member of the Adair County, Missouri, Historical Society.

Any photos that I have taken and post on this site are free to anyone. You have my permission to copy them for personal use or post to or any other ancestral sites you wish as long as it is out of respect for the person represented. I hope you find some of your relatives!

I am happy to make any additions or corrections to memorials; just use the Edit tab and I will make the changes as soon as possible.

I have fixed my memorial so you can delete yours. Wish you would have sent me a message first and not after the fact of creating a second memorial.

Louis Jasper Crockett
What a lovely job you did on chronicling the life of Louis. His brother William Dwyain Crockett was my great grandfather.
I hope you don't mind, you did such a good job I copied your entire explanation and added it as a comment (the credit going to you of course) on my family tree. Unfortunately I did not know my great Grandfather or any of his siblings and I really enjoyed your comments. Thank you.

I appreciate the permission to use your posted photos for our trees. Does this permission pertain also to the Death Certificates you have posted? Amos Stedman is my 4x great-grandfather.
Thank you,

Picture of William
We have the same picture of William Shelton. Where did you get your picture if I may ask? Are you related?

Thanks for the great memorial page you created for Dr. Overton Terry Azbill. I was looking for information about him, and everything I could have wanted was on your page. Beautiful job!
Blessings to you, Martha

Thank You!
Thank you so much for the information on Cora Belle Potter Swank. Her son Charles Verne Swank's wife is buried at Hope Cemetery, too - I'm not sure about Charles Verne Swank himself (1887 - 1954). I don't have a picture for him.
