My mom and I have been able to find some pictures of head stones on this site that we most likely would never have seen. It's helped us in my search of our family history. "Thank you".|
If we've made any mistakes or you have any suggestions for any of the ones that we've placed in here, please let us know.
If you'd like us to transfer a site over to you, just ask. As long as it's not someone that is a part of our family I will be glad to transfer.

Thank you so much for taking this photo for me. I really appreciate it!
Thank you, that would be great if you could add the close up of each one separate. I know what you mean about the sun, it is not always a good thing when trying to get photos. I have found that if I back up from the stone and then zoom in, it makes it easier.
Many thanks for the photos. :)

ISAIAH GORRELL PASSED AWAY FRIDAY MORNING
Funeral of Civil War Verteran Was Held At Indian Creek Church
Isaiah Gorrell, a Civil War verteran and pioneer resident of the NewHartford vicinity, passed away at his home Friday morning, following an illness of several months duration.
Isaiah Gorrell was born in Clark County, West Virginia, March 17, 1839, being at the time of his death 89 years, 4 months, and 3 days old. He was a son of Benjamin and Rebecca Davis Gorrell. In early childhood he moved with his parents to Marietta, Ohio, where he resided until early manhood. Then he came to Missouri
When the Civil War broke out he readily volunteered and gave four years of service to the cause of the southern Conferderacy.
He was united in marriage to Miss Tempy Alice Pritchett on January 23,1871. To this union six children were born, Mrs. Alfred Whilhoit of Elreno, Oklahoma: Frank Gorrell of Ashley: Roger Gorrell of Fulton: Mrs. Charley Young of Bowling Green: Fred Gorrell of Oklahoma City: and Miss Pearl Gorrell who resided with her parents.
Mr. Gorrell was a good citizen always taking active part in the best interests for the community in which he lived. He was a good neighbor and friend and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Funeral services were held at Indian Creek church Saturday morning at eleven o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. S. Eames, who preached a consoling and inspiring sermon. The body was laid to rest in the cemetery near the church.
To those who mourn his death we extend our sincere sympathy in their loss.
A large concourse of friends attended the funeral and among those present were: S. B. Weatherford of this city, and Edward Lawrence of Louisville,ex-Confederate soldiers, who served in the same company with Mr. Gorrell

I have not had a chance to check any of the material you previously forwarded. My Kendrick family files are in the storage tubs buried in the closet. Will take some moving around to get to them. I should warn you that for several generations the Kendrick family named at least 1 son "Edom" and sometimes even first cousins would have the same first name...a genealogists nightmare! My line of descent is Edom Kendrick, Sr.; Edom Kendrick, Jr.; Peter Fine Kendrick; Joseph Edom Kendrick...
Don't know where Edom Kendrick, Jr., and Peter Fine Kendrick are buried...presumably at Roadman Cemetery but there is no record and no tombstone has been located there. I do know that Joseph Edom Kendrick is buried there as my grandmother was a teenager when he died and she attended the funeral. I don't know if there ever was a tombstone. Joseph's wife is buried in town. Someone once told me they thought the Roadman Cemetery was on Kendrick land, but I have never verified it.

Forgot - would you also link her to her father - Cornelius Furfey #106733745
Ah thanks for the information and for adding them. I understand about having to delete pictures quickly. They do take up a good deal of space. If you could get the phone number, I'd appreciate it. I'm not sure how soon I'd be able to call them as I'm usually working most common work hours but perhaps I can get a chance soon. Thank you again.

|Susan Kelly||RE: Scholl, Dover Cem.|
Hello. Did I misread this, or is your name, Susan, as well.
Thank you, so much, for the transfer of the Scholl memorials to me. And, for being so kind as to go to the cemetery and take the headstone photos. I am still trying to find the link from these Scholl's to my Browning's. As you might have noticed, there is a Scholl's family member by the name of Mountjoy, which is a bit unusual. My grandfather was adopted by a Browning family at the age of three months,and they named him, Mountjoy. So, you might see why I believe that there is a family connection, not to mention his wife being a Browning (the original Mountjoy Scholl, that is) and that there were also other Browning family members in census records with them.
I can't thank you enough for your help.

Noticed your photo request: I don't live in Missouri but have a Monsees Cemetery list that shows JHS's gravestone between those of Theodore & Mathilde Luetjen and Herman & Anna Luetjen.
