FINDAGRAVE SERIOUSLY DISCOURAGES :
UNKNOWN BURIALS!!!

If I post an unknown burial in 2001, and you research John Smith, and post a memorial in 2015, the correct cemetery with his info, who should keep his memorial? YOU, because I just willy nilly posted a memorial to have his name out there>>>>>

C'MON PEOPLE, DO THE RESEARCH
BEFORE YOU POST!!!

I HAVE ASKED EVER SO KINDLY, FOR YOU NOT TO PUT COPIES OF THE MISSOURI DEATH CERTIFICATES ON MY MEMORIALS,
IF YOU WANT TO POST THEM TO EVERY ONE OF YOUR OWN MEMORIALS BE MY GUEST,
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE!!!
THEY ARE FREE TO VIEW ONLINE...

My main focus has been on Benton County Missouri, because my father's people settled there in 1859, and married into many different families; Carleton, Cook, Delozier, Boring, McMillin, VanHoozer, Chastain, Crouch, Mayhugh etc. They also brought a few different families with them in a wagon train, including; Sellers, Parker, Cate etc. Sometimes I take a few liberties with the OLD burials as to exact date of death, and Cemetery. I KNOW they are in buried Benton County, many of my ancestors were poor farmers, maybe never had a stone, and probably a few of them are at the bottom of the lake, because lets face it, before running water, you needed to live near water. Most of the small Cemeteries near water were "moved" by the Corps of Engineers.
Moved is a loose term, a cousin and friend who we will call Mr Chastain told me in 2009 when he was younger, and still living in Benton Co MO. He watched the Carleton Family Cemetery being "moved" They used a large flat bed truck and a couple guys with shovels, they would lift the headstone onto the back of the truck, and scoop one shovel full of dirt and throw it on the stone, then onto the next. NO bodies were ever moved...I am pretty sure this true for a lot of small family Cemeteries...
Back in the day, headstones were a luxury that few could afford, many field stones were used, but that burial would be lost within a few generations, as people moved away etc.
So if I have added an OLD burial that I cannot PROVE to you, so sorry...

Quality, not quantity...

I try to create memorials that will help family members find there loved ones final resting place, with as much info as I can find.
additions and or corrections always welcome

**I do not respond to negativity**

William Marion 'Willie' Stone
Linda: I received your message about Willie being the actual name of William Marion Stone rather than William. Willie was a nephew of my grandfather, Marion Dee Hunt. I believe that William really was his first name. I've found it on his death certificate, the 1880 census where he was living with his grandfather, Daniel Hunt, and he and his mother, Susan Evaline, were listed as Kibbys with Kibby being Susan Evaline's first husband. Also William is the name given in the 1920 census when he is living in Madison Co., Arkansas. I have done some research concerning G-aunt Evaline's 'marriage' to Benjamin Stone and I'm not sure that it was legal as I can find no evidence that B. H. Stone had divorced his first wife by then. I don't think Aunt Evaline found out about the first wife until a short time later and she divorced Benjamin Stone. B. H. Stone was in court in the late 1870's and what little is readable of the court records, he was accused of a felony. I don't know if that was because he had committed bigamy or because, as the family store is, that he took a wagon and horse (or team) with him when he left Aunt Evaline and the wagon and horse or horses belonged to my g-grandfather, Daniel Hunt. Willie probably was named William for one of Aunt Evaline's brothers, and Marion for another brother, my grandfather Marion Dee Hunt. I am interested in any informtion you have on Benjamin H. Stone.
