Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have just begun genealogy research since October 2009 and I am totally hooked on it. I wish I had more time to work on it but I have to admit, there is not a single day that I am not logging onto and following up with Find A, which I have found to be a most valuable asset to help finish up a genealogy line.

I am also researching the family lines of Waltman, Price, Jenkins, Ketcherside,Parker, Williams, Neal, Whitt, Radford, Russell, Hamilton, Hudgins, Moss, Joslin, Veach, AuBuchon, Sailors & Trosper. Any information would be greatly appreciated - just contact me.

Sometimes as I am researching, I will come across information from the Missouri Death Certificate database and will add memorials because I believe they should be created to help people find their loved ones, their ancestors or missing friends etc. If you have information of any relative and where they are buried but not listed yet - please add their memorial for future generations to find. Everyone deserves to be remembered with their own memorial page.

I will gladly honor "family first" on transfer of any memorial upon request as long as it is not my close family. Of course, if you are a closer relative than myself, please give your relationship and I would be very glad to transfer to you. I think it is very important for family members to memorialize their loved ones for future generations, and don't forget to add photos and stories and leave virtual flower messages. Remember if you sponsor a memorial for only $5.00 - you can add up to 20 photos to their memorial.

You have my permission to use any photos of headstones that I have posted.

I have just started using the Virtual Cemeteries to list my different families & cemeteries. This is also a great tool!

Good luck in your searches and God bless you for caring about all of our ancestors.

Mollie Williamson Creasy
Hi Barbara, we have been in contact before on our genealogy. I was looking at your Find-A-Grave posting for Mary Marandy "Mollie" Williamson Creasy, which is very nice, and I wondered if you would mind adding her father, George W. Williamson. She is my great, great aunt, her sister, Alice Williamson, was my great grandmother. Their father, George, is my great great grandfather. I can give you his memorial number so you can add him to her if you would, please. Thank you very much.

Moore, Whitt, Casey, Woolards. i Wayne & Butler Counites
Hi Barbara,

I am hoping that maybe you will be able to help me untangle a family tangle. I am related to Caseys, Woolards, Moores, in Wayne and Butler Counties. Apparently Black River Township was in both counties. I think that my Dad was related to both the Whitts and Paynes , the Whitts from his Mother's side and the Paynes from his father's side . I am wondering how the Whitt's -Paynes are related to each other.. The particular families I am trying to untangle are
from the late 1800's to ABOUT 1920.
?? female Woolard married Mr. Whitt in Tennessee.
(per letter from her sister Luvicea Lousie Woolard Cssey's mention of her sister in a letter "my sister married a Whitt)
So this lady would have been my Grandmother Nora Florence Casey's maternal Aunt and Mr. Whitt her Uncle.
is this maybe the Mrs Whitt who raised Joe carl Payne?
Alice Moore (Dad's paternal Aunt) married Mr Payne. Alice died and a A Mrs Whitt., Sarah Jane or Jennie raised Joe Carl Payne . There was also a little girl named Thelma Payne but I don't know who raised her. I am not sure but I think Sarah may have also been an Aunt to my Dad from the Moore side as well.
Then there's a John Payne and A Ray Whitt who were his cousins I remember him talking about them and I think I met one of them when I was little) where they related ? Why did Mrs Whitt raise Joe Payne? Was she related to Alice?
They called my Grandma Aunt Nora.
AND Nora Casey Porch Moore (my Grandmother) had a sister in law whose name may have been either Hawes or Porch may have married a Whitt ..I think her name was Sarah, I actually have no clear idea at all.

The reason this is important to me is because my Grandmother and Grandfather, Nora F. Casey Porch and Harry Moore were introduced at the church service and then married a week later because they were both recently Widowed with small children and he needed help with his younger children which included a newborn. and Grandma had been forced off the farm with her 4 children by her 1st husband's family very shortly after her husband died, in Jan 1907. She and Grandpa were married 6 June 1907. This was in BlackRiver Township. It has always bothered me that they could have been thrown together like that at church. She had never heard of him before, He was over 15 years older than she and his oldest sons were less than 10 years younger than her. I very recently learned a great deal more about Grandma's family and I now wonder if they ( Whitts and Paynes) WERE related to each other and if her former sister in law was also married to a Whitt then maybe their families were behind it and if there was people in the family who knew one or both of them it doesn't sound as awful. I don't mean my Grandfather was awful, he was a very kind man and I never heard her say anything different but just the thought that she had been more or less forced into a marriage just always bothered me,

To further Muddy the waters Three of Alfred' and Patsy Woolard's children married 3 Caseys from the same family. and they all named their kids the same names. AGGGGGGG!

I saw that you had my great grandparents on your list. Could you please add my aunt Mary and uncle Clarence to their children. Aunt Mary was in MI and my Uncle Clarence is buried in Cheyenne WY

Thank you for everything you do

Hudgins Family
I am glad the information was helpful. I just like adding what I can find about a family. I personally am not satisfied with just a birth and death date. I like to know who they are even if I never heard of them until I added the memorial.

Parker ancestors
Hi Bonnie. I saw your Parker photo requests in Lulu Cemetery, south of Senath. My Parker research may overlap with yours. I'll send an email with more details. Scott

RE: Saint Joseph Cemetery
You are welcome. The cemetery is only about 3 acres with about 50% fill. I also took many more photos and posted them while I was there. One of my great great grandmother's (Martha Justine Govero) is buried there and a great aunt Mary Frances (King) Boyer.
