Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors and they themselves fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Indian Wars,the War for Texas Independence, the Civil War on both sides and World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.
Donít violate copyright.
This may be the most difficult one to adhere to. You must be careful where you take information from, and how you use it. While facts (such as dates and places of birth, marriage, and death) are not copyrightable, the words used to convey that information are. Do not directly copy text but use your own words. Even more important are images. Remember that copyright currently lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator. All those family photographs in your possession? Copyright belongs to the person who took the photograph, and to his/her heirs. The key date at the moment is 1944. By Michael J. Leclerc (Prof. genealogist)

When I lived in Sedalia my neighbor's grandmother lived next door to him. I knew more "of" him than knew him but when I saw the obituary, I checked and nobody had put a memorial on Findagrave so I decided to.

RE: Lottie Washburn
I have one of Lottie taken in Dillon, MT with some of her siblings while visiting her brother, Roy Webster. Think I put it on Ancestry. Just wondered if one of Lottie and William.

RE: Washburn (Morgan County)
Our granddaughter needed to know her ancestors for school report. Daughter bought us a computer and a genealogy program. It was uphill from there. It has been fun learning about husbands family and mine. We've been married now for 59 yrs. and met Geiger's and many Webster's over those years. We live in Huntsville, TX and don't get back to Morgan Co. often now. I kept in contact with Mildred Six for several years until her passing. Most of Calvin's ancestors are buried in Ivy cemetery, but his folks are buried in Versailles cemetery plus other ancestors. We don't know his g-g grandfathers parents (John N. Webster's) were. I know one family said they were his parents, but having carefully tracked them, turned out to be wrong, as their John N. Webster is buried in Ohio, not Missouri and wife names were never kin to our John N. Webster. I'm a picture person and have several pictures of Webster side, but none of Washburn side. Do you happen to have one of William and Lottie Washburn that I could get a copy of? Calvin's family left Morgan county when the Webster's sold their property to Missouri to create Lake of the Ozarks. They were mainly tenant farmers living mainly in New Franklin and Arrow Rock. His folks died within a month of one another in late 1940's when he was a teenager. Mother of cancer and father heart attack. He continued to live in Arrow Rock with Elmer and Mary Green. They took him in. They were wonderful people. I was really saddened by their passing, as I learned a lot for both. They owned a gas station in Arrow Rock, sold out, owned a hog farm and another farm near their home. Mrs. Green was active in craft club in Arrow Rock and a terrific cook. Calvin graduated from Marshall H.S., joined the Navy, went to college afterwards, then moved to Houston, TX to work as a draftsman for the Austin Co., where I met him. Afterwards, went to work for Brown & Root (about 28 years) where he retired. We live on 10 acres outside Huntsville and enjoy ever minute of it.

Hi Bonnie,

RE: Washburn (Morgan County)
Y must be connected to Eula Sparks Washburn. My husband is connected to Washburn's via Lottie Webster and Wm. S. Washburn, his aunt and uncle. My husband's siblings were born in Gravois Mills, but he was born in New Franklin. Two of his sisters had worked for the Washburn's at their resort for awhile.

This is a interesting story. Don't know anything about it at all. If it will be alright with you, I would like to send you an email through the address you have listed. There is too much to write in this space. Hope that will be alright.
