Please do not use the "LEAVE A PUBLIC MESSAGE" for Edits, there are Edit tabs for that...PLEASE use the EDIT TABS for each individual memorial-If you do not use the edit tab, you may be deleted without a response. THANK YOU

DO NOT write essays, paragraphs/personal beliefs/hate notes/love notes ETC ETC in the token section of a memorial, it is for a "token", flower, flag ETC
If you have some information regarding the individual, you should USE THE EDIT TAB !!!, So the owner of the memorial can add the appropriate information.

**********PLEASE DO NOT POST COPIES OF DEATH CERTIFICATES ON MY MEMORIALS**********

IF SOMEONE POSTS A DEATH CERTIFICATE ON ANY MEMORIAL AND THE OWNER DOES NOT WANT THEM POSTED TO THEIR MEMORIALS, YOU CAN CONTACT SUPPORT@FINDAGRAVE.COM, AND THEY WILL REMOVE THEM :-)

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, Parker, Blankenship, Slinker, Cook, Haase, Hunter, Briggs, Carpenter, Delozier, Boring, McMillin, VanHoozer, Chastain, Crouch, Mayhugh etc. They also brought a few different families with them in a wagon train, including; Hurt, Graham, VanHoozer, Sellers, Parker, Cate/Cates etc...
Before running water, you needed to live near water. Most of the small Cemeteries near water were "moved" by the Corps of Engineers.
In preperation for the Kaysinger Dam Project, later called Truman Dam
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, Wooden markers, that rotted away, or Cedar Trees now long dead...but that burial would be lost within a few generations, as people moved away etc.

Quality, not quantity...

additions and or corrections always welcome
