Bio and Links
Bio Photo My photos are not copyrighted, so feel free to use. In most cases, I have cropped and resized them before posting.

When I fill a photo request, I sometimes will check for other stones with the same surname, so check the cemetery for memorials or photos I may have added.

Please use the edit tab on the memorial for additions, corrections or transfers.


For many years I have used the P.O.W. Dad for e-mail, webpages, ect. I use it in honor of my dad , Dwayne Blackman, who spent 26 months as a P.O.W. in Germany during World War II.

RE: Hannan Mausoleum in Walnut Hill
No relation and I don't remember where I got the picture but my parents and grandparents are buried in Council Bluffs and it might have come from some of their old photos.

RE: Carmack Cemetery (Shady Grove)

Thank you so much for your reply. At least now I know it isn't right off the road. Most of these graves/cemeteries are not. I'm still trying to get pictures of the Cole cemetery on their old homestead.

Is this the old Carmack homestead? Also, what about the Shady Grove schoolhouse, was it near there?

Carmack Cemetery (Shady Grove)


I notice you took photos at the Carmack Cemetery at Shady Grove School. Can you tell me EXACTLY how to locate the cemetery and the School? I have been there at the intersection and looked all around, driving down the roads for a ways and did not find it. I look at a satelite map and can't find the school.

Lewis and Rebecca Carmack are my 3rd great grandparents, and I would really like to visit their graves when I come down there in a week or so. I live just east of St. Louis, but am from Pulaski County, near Hancock.

Thanks much!

Thanks so much for the headstone photo today, and for making a memorial for Connie Agnew. It's always nice to be surprised by a new family member!
