Bio and Links

I am continuing research on a particular bit of the history of McDonald County, Missouri (sometimes called McDonald Territory) and have a page concerning their well-known attempt to secede from the State of Missouri, in 1961. (See the link given below.) Thank you to the then-Governor Orval Faubus of Arkansas who graciously offered to accept McDonald County into the State of Arkansas. "After all," he said, "it would offset the "bootheel." Oddly enough, to this day, McDonald County, although in Missouri, remains as a part of the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers Federal Metropolitan Statistical Area. To me, the incident provided a fascinating story, which tied in to another interest: philately and cover collecting (local posts).

Current number of pending "EDITS": 11 (As of 27 MAY 2015)

Thank you to those who have checked and processed your edits!


9-22-2014 NEW RULE: Due to abuse, I am forced to stop accepting "blind" correction messages. If you have your message function blocked which prevents anyone from contacting you, and don't have an email address or some way to contact you, I will likely delete your message. Also, submitting 'proof' by saying that a previous memorial existing with different spelling, with no photos of the marker to verify, or anything else to say why your source is more accurate than mine - is not a reason for me to delete an entry I made five minutes earlier. I have no reason to doubt the survey/source that I took the research time to locate. If there is a photo in the correct cemetery, that's one thing. Also, keep in mind that simple courtesy and respect go a long way, considering we are all volunteers.

Your bio rules
I am so proud of you for making the rule of change on your memorials. I will definitely quote it at times on the memorials I take care of. Yes, so many are so rude & offensive.

Tell me...are you a relative of the little Susannie Lowery I posted? I just received a message to delete all this info..... Please email me if you can. Loved your little angel and note.

RE: Chulio and Cherry Tree
Thank you. Although I think most people that have Family buried there know it by both names. At least I did and I'm not the brightest lite on the tree.
Thanks again.

RE: Seaton twins
Thank you so much for so promptly reviewing and accepting my edits. The alternate spelling I have for "Virgy" is "Virgie" rather than "Virgey" and she did not die at birth, but lived until 7 Sep 1904. It was only her twin brother "Virgel," or alternately, "Virgil" who was either stillborn or died 1 Dec 1903, the day they were born. I don't really know anything about managing Find A Grave memorials (and don't even have time to adequately keep up with my family tree and the Facebook family pages I try to administer.)

BIO information
The memorial for Clyde F. McClendon #126578756, in West Point Cemetery, Vinita, Craig, OK; there is information about a canvass and survey on this cemetery. Do you have more information or a link to the online info mentioned in the bio. Or do you know who might have posted this? The McClendons buried here are from my moms family and we have never been able to locate this cemetery. I have been told it is remote and all graves are unmarked. Thanks.

That was me - about Uncle Ralph or uncle gene - this troll name Sheryl K Leggs - in OHIO - and I think she used a e-mail site that helps you to get into your e-mail and Hacked my password to find a grave - ? or someone let her do it with out checking first - I don't know how she did it but she did - now today from one of the other kids to go back to grandfather said it had been merged and now its not conected to him that way -- I lost to say the least, If they don't know what they are doing - ? They shouldn't be mergeing my stuff.. -

Anyway cousin Sorry for this post but this S Leggs guy has taken over my Find a Grave in Bell Cemetery and now I cant go back in to your parents or our Grandparents because he has merged mine with his.

He has some fix about *Uncle Ralph as if he knows him ? ???? -

I hope you know I was asked to go back in and remove from the bio my statement by the adminstrator of Find A Grave -

I Sure hope who ever he is he get my e-mail to fix it or there going to be hell to pay ! I'm about to do something to all of them... I'm so tired of this bull C and I'm not going to play nice anymore... I'm mad as hell about it all .... Asked for all the family back on his bio page you can read it !

R. Hutson I have over 600 + to redo to remove it the ones i can anyway that a lot .. These people who have over 10,000 + to manage, every day to keep up with the e-mail request must be a pain to keep track of all of them -

Wes, I did not realize you had entered this person and I entered him in the Weddington Cemetery. I will leave mine until you take what information you need and then I will delete. The info entered is from the newspaper clipping of his obituary. So sorry.

RE: John T Bailey
I'm thinking it's not but waiting to hear back from someone. I'll let you know. I don't think the wife listed on Find A Grave is the right wife. At least it's different than the two I have (Fannie Lively & Susan Mae Arnold).
