Bio and Links
I grew up on a farm just a mile west of Lone Rock Church and Payne Cemetery which is located in northern Harrison Co., Missouri. Ancestor's on both my father's side and my mother's side were instrumental in building and maintaining Lone Rock Church and also in the early maintenance of the cemetery. My great great grandfather received the first funeral service given in the new church (before the floor was installed) in 1893 and my great grandfather built the pulpit that is still in the church, as well as helping haul lumber and building the church.

Because I am not yet retired, edits/transfers requested on weekends will likely be completed sooner than those requested on week days.

Dear Wally,

thank you for taking a photo of Ellen Barber's stone. It was so very thoughtful of you to take the time to do so.

If you are in the area again of Ellen Barber's stone, would you look closely to see if you can tell what is written on the stone. It would be helpful to me and other ancesters.

thank you again for your thoughtfulness in helping those who are not close to the cemeteries to see the stones of our ancesters!

Thank you so very much for taking the picture and posting it to Lydia's memorial. I know that I would never be able to see it in person. It means a lot to me---thank you so much!

Thanks for the photos of some of the graves of the William K Maxwell of Decatur Co Iowa. I am descended from William's older brother John, and I needed pics of these graves to confirm their death dates.

There were a couple other graves of his children's that are supposed to be in that cemetery. Were you not able to find them? I might also be interested in any other Maxwell graves in that cemetery just in case there are more that are not listed.

Wally, thanks so much for taking the photo of my Aunt Stella's marker. I doubt that I would ever see it if it weren't for your efforts. Thanks again.
