Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history since 1978 and have enjoyed doing family research since that time. I love this website and have been adding memorials for our family. I hope, if you view any of my memorials you will contact me so I can share what ever information I might have. Some of my family memorials I have listed, not knowing the cemetery, in hopes someone who sees them may be able to tell me. I also have been adding memeorials for my daughter's in-laws family and some from the local cemeteries. So either way, I can possibly tell you something about a number of my memorials. I welcome your questions, comments, corrections etc. I have met some really nice and helpfull people through Find A Grave. It is my most sincere desire to help someone add new data to their research so plese feel free to contact me.

RE: George Hylton
Did I ever replay to your question concerning the children of George and Esther Hilton?

RE: William Whitley Memorial# 66612918
Thanks for your inquiry. These two cemeteries are actually the same cemetery (duplicates). I'll check my database later today to against the list in each cemetery to determine if everyone is represented. Terry

Hi Rita,

I've transferred the memorial to you. Someone a while ago was helping to clear up the surname, which I had as Hagen-Fry on a number of memorials. I can't remember who that was. Maybe someone else from your family?

Hope you are doing well.

RE: Willie Anderson, Jr.
Thank you so much for taking a new photo. This new photo of his grave marker is very legible, and I was able to read the birth and death dates and add it to his memorial.
I appreciate all your work!

RE: Saint Columba Cemetery
Sorry it took me so long to reply.
Most of my info was from a cemetery book for St Columba Cemetery.
But, I have lived here my whole life, so I do go to the church sometimes and get the info from the books there.
If you want to contact them yourself - (660-944-2301)
St Columba Church - 311 Roosevelt St - Conception Jct., MO 64434

RE: Willie Anderson, Jr.
Hi, Rita,
I don't think so.
We descend from a man named Daniel Bardo, who appeared out of nowhere in Pennsylvania in the early 1700s. No one has ever been able to find out who his parents were or where he came from.
Most of my relatives are in Pennsylvania. Some migrated to Ohio, Florida, and Texas (where we are).

RE: Willie Anderson, Jr.
Hi, Rita,
Can you please re-take a photo of the gravestone for Willie Anderson, Jr. (Find A Grave Memorial # 54396718)? It is in the Indian Hill AME Zion Church Cemetery in Indian Hill, SC.
The current photo cannot be read to get the date of birth. Is there any way you could wipe off the leaves and dirt so that this is visible?
Thank you so much for your efforts!
