Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Dana Gilbert and I live in Kansas City, KS. I am very new to the Find A Grave community. I am very happy to be a part of such an organization. I have recently begun to research my family and have found FAG to be a wonderful resource. More importantly though, it allows all of us to honor our ancestors in a way that often is geographically impossible to the majority of folks.

My searches began in the Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Colorado areas yet moved quickly throughout the United States. It was very gratifying to easily visit a memorial for a distant relative on the East and West coasts.

The primary family surnames I am researching are Cates, Hemenover, Morris, Adams, Glover, Skinner, Rhodes and Swope.

At this moment I am not taking photo requests. As I become more proficient in my research, I will be changing my status.

Added the info you sent about Mary Deguire at Cape County memorial. I'd be glad to transfer it to you if you would like. Ruth

Hi Gladys,
I have no idea if you use the proper genealogy and legal method of dating.....Day, Month, year or if you use the common everyday way. So therefore I could not figure out the dates you sent.
I have transferred the Rhodes memorials to you. That way you can make any corrections you might have in the future.
WELCOME to Find-A-Grave it is a wonderful site.

Hi Dana:
Glad to add parents for Ruth Short. Would you like for me to transfer her page to you?
Just let me know. I agree with you on your bio about how helpful this website has been. It seems like lots of time when I go out to take pictures for someone else, I come home to find one of my requests has been fulfilled. Awesome!

Skinner Info
Hi Dana.. WELCOME TO FIND A GRAVE !!! and thank you for the additional info on George & Elizabeth.. I plan on getting to Malcolm cemetery to start photographing within the next few weeks and will get photos of their headstones for you as well.. I'll let you know when I get them uploaded..
I was working on Columbia Cemetery and just by chance the cemetery record listed the burial place of the Skinner children's parents.. so I went ahead and created those two memorials for them.. I'm so glad that enabled you to find them even without the birth and death dates..
I will also keep an eye out here in Williams county for any other Skinners that I may come across and send them your way..

Happy Ancestor Hunting to you..

Sandi L.
