|Bio and Links|
I am a library media specialist at a public high school. During my studies as a graduate student I practiced my research skills by working on all branches of my family tree. |
My surnames include but are not limited to Cottrell, Stipe, McPheeters, Nelson, Riechard, Hollenback, Jennings, Bucher/Booker, Campbell, Lemon, Robards, Roach, Riley, Laird, Spry, Farr, Lynn/Linn, Eaton, Ogden, Watkins, Cornelius, James, Cook, Hodgson/Hodson, Mackie, Pabst, Wright, Bowater, Underwood, Wells, Swanson, Willis, Hinish, Peck and Donahue.
Although I am not related by blood to the Tompkins or Lear families of Ralls County, Missouri I research these families in honor of my Great Aunt Mallie Pearl Tompkins Laird. There are no descendants for her husband, herself or any of her siblings. My goal is that her family not be forgotten. The surnames I work on for my Aunt Mallie's family are Tompkins, Lear, some Strode and some Maddox.

|Steve Lamasney||RE: Thanks|
It's actually very easy to find. It's across the street from the Bowling Green City Cemetery.
it's at the corner of N Main Cross Street and Lake Shore Drive.
The strange thing is Memorial drive goes threw Bowling Green City Cemetery but Memorial Cemetery is directly across the street.
The easiest way to find it lets just say you are going north on hwy 61 and you take the exit 161 going left at the top of the offramp into downtown, you go until you see Caseys General Store/Gas Station on the right side, turn right in front of Casey's onto Locust Street, turn left onto N Cross Street (about 8 blocks up Locust). go 2 block on Cross Street and you can't miss it as there will suddenly be cemetery on both sides of the road.

That is very interesting! I guess if traced far enough we're all related to someone of interest!:) My email is on my bio page if you want to send something over... it's email@example.com.
Yes...Pamela is my mother:)
Thanks for the info!
I'll take whatever you send me. Oh, I have a picture of Sarah Margaret (it is either her or her mom).
What I can I send you?

Two Harbors is 26 miles East of Duluth. It is a lovely town. I work for the CN railroad that services both the Two Harbors Docks and the Duluth Docks, as well as the mines in Northern MN.
Old New London is just to the west of the on- ramp to HWY 19 from Hwy 61. There is a grove of trees just off the ramp with the power lines, DOT right of way, cable TV, telephone, and whatever else buried right through it. When they made the right of way for the power, they bulldozed the stones out of the way and laid them in the fence row. Some are visible from the on ramp, but you have to go slow and know where to look. It is disgraceful. I'll let you know how the campaign goes.
You must live near the Southern WI border?
|Gary L. Maize||RE: Nelsons|
Go north out of Hannibal to Clear Creek Road and turn right(north) go about 2 miles.
I drove right up close. Would depend on whether it was wet or dry.
|Julie Keeven Nunn||Charles Brooksher|
Yes- I would be happy to post the full obituary. It would be no problem & may mean a lot to the family.
It's been nice to collaborate with you. :)
|Major M.||RE: 1st Lt. Leigh Slates|
My pleasure. Glad you and the family enjoy them. I sent additional photos of LT Slates to your email.
Believe me when I say that he was an American hero. He earned 7 Air Medals....almost unheard of!
Would love to see you update his bio with more info about him.

|CryptoGram||RE: Shawanna Gayle Nelson|
Well, I could cry, Heather...I, too, was fixated on finding this baby, but didn't think I would...guess God was guiding. We don't live any where around there, but were traveling cross-country. If you look at the map on the main page of Mount Olivet Cemetery on FindAGrave, you can make out that it's northern-most roads kinda form the shape of a camel. There are sections inside the camel's head and on both sides of it. Shawanna is inside the camel's head near the back of its neck...you can also see some other markers east of her in the cross shot...Toalson is one. Also, this section is mostly regular adult graves, but that back-of-the-camel's-head where Shawanna is is babies.
|Christine Masterson||RE: Effie Swafford Winters|
I was driving on HWY 61 South out of Muscatine at Wapello I turned onto Townsend Ave which turns into CR-G62 and drove about 3 or 4 miles. I turned left on to M Ave. and drove about 4 miles and when I crossed 50th street it was about .02 mile. It is out in the country and looked nice. There are many more graves than what is listed on line and many old old stones. We went to several cemeteries in the country that day and I used my GPS to find them all.
