|Bio and Links|
I am a Missouri girl, now residing in KY. and I have been hooked on finding my family since the 1960's but I put it on the back burner when I went to work. |
Now that I am retired, I am going full force. All the family group sheets that my family filled out all those many years ago are now prized treasures. I have Grandma's list of family members from other branches on several sheets of paper, including the back of an envelope.
I have been so fortunate to have made some lovely friends...one that I took what seems like a 100 pictures of her family at Cave Hill, one that is related to my step-mother and two who are my cousins. I count myself among the very lucky. And I have met them all except for my latest newly found cousin...located just this summer.
One of the joys of my retirement is taking pictures for others. It's a thrill to get their messages of excitement when I have found their person and many more that they didn't know were buried with that person. Find A Grave is such a wonderful website as it has brought us to appreciate those who came before and to honor them.
My families are Greenlees, Driskell, Nash, Eustace, Weese, Aldrich, Brays and many more. I have even found out that one of my 6th great grandfathers was a Seneca Indian Chief named Tanicharrison, who fought with Geo. Washington against the French, which was quite a surprise to this German Irish girl.
The pictures I take for you, belong to you. Feel free to use them however you choose. I would be proud to see one of my pictures on your family tree...so enjoy. I would be happy to transfer any of my memorials to you as long as they are not my family.

|Melissa O'Brian||Re Bertie C Driskell # 58712133|
I've been putting together genealogy exhibits for the county fair this month, my 4th summer as an exhibitor.
My grandpa's first spouse was Bertie C BURCH. I'm doing her family as an exhibit research project.
Wondered if you know more about her 2nd spouse Edward Driskell?
I've found a Bertie Robinson, on a tree, but that as far as I know, there was no Robinson after Bertie divorced grandpa Kiphart? I do have Edward & Bertie on a city census, St Joseph, as Janitors for Mercy Hosp.
I found her name on an Easter card my mother Margaret saved, after she passed in 2008. It was from one of her dau Berda. Wasn't sure of the spelling, but I do remember a driscol mentioned in the family, spelling was wrong in my memory!
Also Bertie vacationed at her sons in Tucson, so I am sure this is our Bertie too.
I am from his second spouse; been doing genalogy since 2010. An I include everyone...she would be a step grandma.
Sorry for the delay. The Cunninghams in the plot across from the Odom plot are already listed. They're Samuel Harrison (#103048006), Nannie Murray (#84395040), Preston B (#103048077), and Eula Chambliss (#103048169) Cunningham. I don't know whether they connect to yours, but I expect you'll need to call the cemetery to see if they've got a record of yours being buried there. Hope this helps.

|J L||RE: John C Meranda|
Hi, I removed the picture for now based on your statement that the middle initial was a C. The picture can always be posted again if it turns out it is an O. I don't have a list of the cemetery. I saw the problem in the findagrave listing when I looked at the dates for the memorial for John C. Meranda and John O. Meranda (Jr). and saw how the dates were so close as to be transcription errors, so I assume someone created John C. Meranda from a separate cemetery canvas where someone misread the stone. I suspect the Scott County Genealogy Society has a listing.
