|dickbelle||Ballenger photo requests at Union Cemetery|
I'm still working on those requests. The snow should recede by the end of the week, and if there is a stone for William, I'll find it. As for Marie, there is no record of her at the cemetery (and this cemetery has good records). She may be living (in her late 90s), or may have married and be out there under a different name. Just throwing out those possibilities….
The photo by Bev that calls itself Nathan and Olive Boone tombstone is not. This should be corrected.
Olives is shown, I cannot add Nathans because photo field is full.
John Colter, for who one of the sons was named.
Was a friend of Nathans, lived in New Haven MO after returning from Yellowstone. He was the only member of the Corps of Discovery allowed tyo leave before the mission was complete and stayed in MT area.
People forget: The Lewis & Clark Expedition was called a "Corps of Discovery" because they were all in the ARMY. It was a military mission.
John Colter was a member of the Missouri Rangers and served under Nathan, his captain, with Daniel Morgan Boone as his lieutenant.
John Colter was killed during the War of 1812 and is buried on the north banks of the Missouri River near former town of Pinkneyville, across the river from New Haven.
His grave has never been found.
A nephew of Nathan also served under him and with John Colter, named James Callaway. His grave deep in the woods, I have found.
Callaway county in MO is named for him.
I have spent many years researching the Boone family and all the falsehoods that get printed.

Hi! Thank you for your interest in Daniel Sperry. While I can understand your desire to maintain your gr-gr-gr-uncle's memorial, he is part of a larger volume of research I have been undertaking for the past decade on the pioneer families of the Western Reserve and I prefer to retain his memorial. That being said, I am always delighted to add any links or info you may wish to see included, and anyone is always free to add photos to any memorial in my control. I would be happy to credit you for that info. If you would like that, please tell me how you wish the credit to read. Thanks for your understanding.

Francis "Fannie" (Beckham) Sanders was my great-great grandmother. So I'm not sure if I will be able to transfer her memorial.
How are you related?
|Misviz||William Willis Clayton - Bean Cemetery|
I updated the memorial for William Willis Clayton with some added information that I found about his children. And, no I am not related. WW Clayton is a War of 1812 soldier who is buried in McDonough County. My research on him has been done due to a project I am doing on 1812 soldiers in the county.

Will be watching as you connect more of the family.
There are many in Yazoo County related.
|Bill E. Doman||Transfers|
Hi: I appreciate requests for transfers and will try to help in any way I can to get my memorials where they will be properly cared for. Glad to help and have a good day.
|Frankie Holt||RE: HIGLEY photos|
Dear Ancestral Sleuth,
I wish I could help you out with a photo, however, when I looked it up, it is in Rexburg, Idaho. I live in South Jordan, Utah. Please let me know if I have made a mistake, but that was from information I found on Find a Grave.
Best wishes and success in sleuthing.
|Y Craig||Rhoda Griffith Crume|
Sorry I can not transfer her to you. She is my direct grandmother.
