Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in St. Louis, but my parents moved to Cape Girardeau, Missouri when I was two days old and then to Graves County Kentucky when I was 9 months old.(My parents lived and worked at Paradise Friendly Home from 1966-1969) I now live in Dexter, Missouri.
I am the oldest son of the comedian Dennis Crutchfield and Margaret Douthitt (now Gilbert) and have one brother, David, who lives in Lexington,Kentucky where he is employed at Lexmark.
In April of 2000, I became the youngest elected Alderman in Dexter, Missouri and the second youngest Alderman to ever sit on the Council. (the youngest was appointed, not elected) I also became the first Alderman to be of Native American Descent(I'm 1/8 Cherokee) the first to have a wife of Hispanic descent, and the first elected Republican from my Ward. I was reelected on April 2nd, 2002. I lost in 2004, but was elected again in 2006.
I have been interested in cemeteries since I was a kid and it always bothered my parents who called it a "morbid hobby". It has paid off now, since cemeteries have helped my knowledge of History. Now when I visit a city and find out that they have a cemetery (or cemteries) with famous graves, I go out of my way to see them (and get pictures for Find-a-grave if they are not already posted). I am a cashier at the Wal-Mart in Cape Girardeau, Mo.
I am married to the former Tracy Randel (she was adopted when she was nine years old. Her birth father was Puerto Rican and her mother was of German descent), who, sadly, was in an accident in August and has been in a coma since then. I have one step-son, Darrin. No transfer requests please. I've run into too many problems with them.

Yellow Fever Epidemic Memorial #10281946
Hello Tim,

Thank you for your works on Find A Grave, but please go back and amend this memorial.

Dr. Luke Pryor Blackburn was ***NOT*** yet the governor of KY, but was a candidate, running for office at the time of his work in Hickman, KY.

His heroism during the epidemic assured his election.

"Luke Pryor Blackburn (June 16, 1816 September 14, 1887) was an American physician, philanthropist, and politician from Kentucky. He was elected the 28th governor of Kentucky, serving from 1879 to 1883."

Thank you

Gaye Hill

Gen. G. W. Jones
Tim, I found this article and thought you would be interested in it.
"The History of Dubuque County"

GEN. GEORGE W. JONES, Dubuque. Many years before the Black Hawk war of 1832, the successful lead miners and Indian traders looked with anxiety to the times when they might take possession of the lead mines which had been opened and worked by Julien Dubuque over forty years before. Among such men was George Wallace Jones; he was born at Vincennes, Ind., on the 12th of April, 1804, and was a son of Hon. John Rice Jones, a native of Merionetshire, Wales; Mr. Jones was educated at the Transylvanina University, in Lexington, Ky., and, on graduating, chose the legal profession, which he studied with a relative, Hon. John Scott, at St. Genevieve, Mo.; he was soon appointed Clerk of Judge Peck's court, in which he discharged his duties with commendation; at this time, failing health requirred a more active life, and, being of very enterprosing spirit, he determined to seek his fortune in the Upper Mississippi lead region; he according removed to the new Territory of Michigan, and made a home at Sinsinawa Mound, only six miles from Dubuque; this was in the early part of 1827. At the close of the Black Hawk war, he was elected Judge of the Court of the Western District of Michigan, now the State of Wisconsin; it may be said to his credit, in the administration of justice, that no appeal was taken from any of is decisions. Upon the organization of Wisconsin Territory, then including Iowa, Minnesota and even the whole region west to the Pacific, in 1836, he was triumphantly elected over two formidable competitors as a delegate to Congress; he then commenced that brilliant political career of civil service and national legislation which continued for more than thirty years, and, when a Government land office was required for Wisconsin and Iowa, he was appointed Surveyor General. This measure had been earnestly advocated by Delegate Jones while in Congress, and it was mainly through his personal influence that the office was located at Dubuque. He accordingly removed to the city and Territory of his adoption, and has remained one of its most distinguished citizens ever since. In the next two years, political partisanship became so strong under a change of Presidential administration, that he was removed from the office, but was re-appointed under the new political policy of President Polk in 1845. He then discharged the duties of Surveyor General until 1848, when he was selected General Assembly as one of the two United States Senators; upon the expiration of his first term as Senator, he was re-elected for another term of six years, terminating in 1859. Under the new administration of President Buchanan, Gen. Jones was appointed Minister to New Canada. He made this official residence in Bogota for three years, and returned during the first year of the rebellion. Under some misapprehension of facts, involving also _________malice, incident to that lamentable period of our history, he was arrested and confined several months at Fort La Fayette, and discharged without specific charges having been made against him; on reaching Dubuque, he was given the honor of a _______reception. For the last fifteen years, Gen. Jones has lived a partially retired life. His present family consists of his wife, whose maiden name was Miss Josephine ___goire, whom he married at St. Genevieve, Mo., in 1829; she was a member of a highly respected French family, a lady of high attainments and distinguished for a ____excellence of womanly and Christian virtues. Of his children there are surviving three sons and two daughters. In every position which in his eventful life he has been called to fill, Gen. Jones has been successful in the highest degree. Few men have more devoted friends; none excel him in unselfish devotion and unswerving ability to the worthy recipients of his confidence and friendship. In public enterprises and benevolent societies, and in all the social and business relations of life, few men of Dubuque or Iowa will leave a brighter record of public service or private character than Gen. George W. Jones.
