Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a descendant of the Daniel Taylor Dean family, Millard Irons family, Solomon Maggert family and Johann Zerfass family. My grandmother, Hazel Surface McPhail and my mother, Lorraine McPhail Dean, decorated graves each year and I went with them, thus my fascination with cemeteries.

My husband's family is John Lafayette LeMaster family, Wm. Jackson Hughes family, Daniel Wainwright family, John H. Boston family, Coleman Pryor Eaton family.

We live in Topeka, Ks. but grew up in Carl Junction, Jasper Co. MO.

I do not know most of the memorials I have built..but I always leave a flower because I believe memorials deserve one. I try to remember veterans, infants, unknowns and old, old graves.

If you would like a family member transferred, please use the EDIT and I will transfer most, except for my relatives.

Those we love remain with us,
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade, because
one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be, more than a
thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory,
they live on in our heart.
Author Unknown.

There's an open gate
at the end of the road
Through which
each must go alone,
And there,
in a light we cannot see,
Our Father claims His own.

RE: Surface
Nice to meet you cousin. I am a Surface descendant of John Ulrick Surface Zurfass, that is trying to map out all of his descendants in the United States.

Thank you for building my fathers memorial and leaving a flower. Your work is appreciated. My dad is Charles Griffin form Berry Alabama buried at Salem Primitive Baptist Church in 1997.

Are you able to provide a clearer reading of this marker? I'm trying to trace if this Fred Mann is a relative. This man could possibly be my great grandfather.

Thanks for the note, Janice. I have sent the links to the page in Memorial Park Cemetery, so you can delete your page in Mount Hope for him. Let me know if there are any more things to fix.

RE: Tuckers
Thank you.
I found some other Tuckers that are listed in both cemeteries and sent those links. Also, I sent some edits to connect a few of them to their parents.

Hi! Janice,
Is it possible you have a translation of his inscription from his marker. It so hard to read above the word Missouri. I have it so far as
"MISSOURI 1829 ??? HUGH SHANNON THE FOUNDER OF THIS HOMESTEAD A NEW HOME IN A NEW COUNTY." What is above this. Thank you for your time. I am only a half 5th great-grand niece to his wife Jane. Take care & God bless.

We appear to share a 5th Great Grand Father :) Greetings.
My Grandfather Harold was the son of Joseph M. Baver. Who I think was born Johannes.
My ancestry DNA shows the majority of my mothers side came from Great Britain and not Germany. I am curious to find out if there is some British Isles ancestry in the Bavers as well.
Take Care

He left a lasting impression on me as a teenager as a teacher and a LEO in CJ. Thanks for all the memorials yku have done. Sadly I have way to many friends already gone. Thanks again and if you would want to read what I wrote about Jerry(not sure of your relation) you can look at in on FB under my name. Im wearing a blue Royals jacket standing with my girlfriend on my profile pic. Thanks again
