Bio and Links
I am working on geneology for the mid-Missouri Brewer (Russellville, Columbia, St Louis are on into Linn County, Brookfield) and mid to southern-Missouri Bayley's (Waynesville / Springfield area). I stumbled across Find A Grave and added it to my resources to help validate data not thinking about how much a photo of a tombstone can bring people and memories to life.

I took my first couple of pictures in a feeling of obligation prior to asking complete strangers to take pictures for me. Since, my daughter and I have discovered a whole new world with new experiences, wonders and questions. The people we have worked with and talked with have been a tremendous help and very warm hearted.

A new day has begun. I travel far and wide throughout Colorado and have family in Missouri were I know requests in the rural areas are growing. I wish fair weather and fun shooting with the respect due our friends and family that have moved on before us.

RE: Junior Wilson
I found Mattie in the Rothville Cemetery but can't find the other three people list in her death certificate; W.W. Roselle, father, Sallie Edwards Roselle, mother and N.H. Smith, husband. Any ideas where they might be? It would be nice to link them to Mattie if we can find them on Find a Grave.

RE: Junior Wilson
Sorry to be so long responding to your request. I don't have records but I do know that Dudley Owen Wilson is buried by the same family marker as Harley and Jr. There is also a picture of Mabel E. Swaithe Wilson who I thought was Harley's wife. Now you say the wife was Mattie B. Wilson. Was Harley married more than once? Do you know where Mattie is buried? I'd like to make the link to Mattie if you know more? Don't know if this helps any but is all I have to offer.

RE: Junior Wilson
I couldn't find a MO death certificate for Jr. but there is one for Harley. The DC connects Harley to his father Dudley and mother Mabel. Do you know how to access the Missouri DC's? If not, go to Good luck in all your searches.

RE: Junior Wilson
I'm sorry but I don't know anything other than what my pictures show. The Rothville Cemetery is fairly small and I have some family, including great grandparents, there. My grandmother was a Wilson, Vonia May Wilson, 1888, Marceline to 1956, Kansas City so I was interested in the name Wilson but was not able to make any connections.

RE: William A. Rhea
I was sorry to 'rain on your parade' :) but I felt like you would rather know accurate information. Sorry I wasn't more help.
Hope you're able to find who you're looking for.
Best regards,

William A. Rhea
Ross, I filled your photo request and took photos of all the ones buried there together. I created pages and added stones for all but you may need to do some double checking. The wife you have linked to William is not the right one. His wife Minnie is buried next to him. Also buried there is a daughter Lois Rhea Smith and her husband, Lt. Col. Lionel Smith. I have everyone linked together correctly and I suspect you will want to remove the link to the Minnie Bayley Rhea you have him linked to.
Are these all your family or what you thinking it was because of the Bayley link? Let me know
Best regards,

You're very welcome for the photos, Ross. Hope they do the area justice. Glad I could contribute to your California history.
