Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors and they themselves fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Indian Wars,the War for Texas Independence, the Civil War on both sides and World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.

RE: Martin Freshour
Okay, I am hoping will be able to resolve issue of Martin Freshour's death date. I had just received an obit back from the State Historical Society Newspaper Archives so could submit another one. Decided to submit request for Martin's obit using the January 5, 1900 date that the "Cemeteries in Cole County, Missouri as recorded in the 1930s-Part 1" book had for his wife Ella F. Hodges that we know from the tombstone is incorrect for Ella. Will let you know what I get back. It is fun to solve a puzzle and break thru a brick wall for someone. Hope this does the job! Elaine

RE: Martin Freshour
The only tombstone pix I had in my May 2013 pix from Russellville cemetery was for Ella F Hodges Freshour. Didn't find one for Martin so am assuming wasn't one there. (Did find some other Freshours including some infants/young children.) I was looking for Freshour ones because we had a George Wilson Freshour marry in to our Shepherd line. Am sure if there had been one next to Ella's for Martin would have got pix of it. However, it is possible it was somewhere else in the cemetery and I missed it. Was only there a few hours due to time constraints. Did the Cole County old cemetery restoration group find a stone for him when they restored the Russellville Cemetery? Did they give you a list of what they found? Know there was a book of Cole County cemeteries published decades back because I found some ancestors in it when I checked it at the library here in Fort Worth. Don't know if it is available to access online or not. Guess I could check Google books. Elaine

RE: Ella Freshour
Thanks! Will send the new info to the person who was wanting a pix of Martin Freshour's tombstone which is why I was looking at it. I knew I had taken pix of some Freshours when there in May, 2013 because we had a George Wilson Freshour that married into our Shepherd line. Didn't have one for him but had the one for Ella F. Freshour, wife of Martin. I had just sent her an email letting her know I had posted Ella's tombstone pix on Find A Grave. Thanks again for all your work posting info to get it out there for people. Elaine

RE: Infant Brewer in Glensted
So far as I know there is not a stone in Glensted cemetery with Johnnie Brewers name on it, only the infant of Johnnie and Bonnie Brewer.

RE: Infant Brewer in Glensted
Bonnie this is correct, my parents are burried in Freedom, my baby sister was burried in Glensted by Robert Breasher's baby as their baby and my baby sister died about the same time. My parents and the Breasher's were related, so they burried their babies togeher.
