|Bio and Links|
I guess I was about 7 or 8 yrs old when I first remember my dad taking me to cemeteries to trace our roots. Now I am an addict to genealogy and cemetery hunting!!! (I think it is from the Mingo Swamp water!!) So if you need something from Stoddard Co., MO, I will do what I can.|
This is a wonderful website it has helped me leaps and bounds in my personal genealogy quest!
I like to transcribe entire cemeteries so loved ones can be found, mine & yours. So most of the memorials I post I am not related to. If you see a relative or someone close to you that I have posted & wish to manage there memorial, please just holler & I can transfer it to you as long as I am not related.
I have posted many photos on this site & anyone may use them for there family tree. If you make a million off one of them, please at least buy me dinner.
If you see a mistake or just have more info just leave me a message or E-Mail me. I will be happy to add the info for any additions or corrections.
A question has been asked several times here lately. "Why do you put 'Bio Info Courtesy of' & link that person to the info?" Well I like to keep track of my sources & who sent me what for whom. Also it gives that person the credit for all the hard work they have done. If you do not want your name attached to a memorial that you have given me info on, please just tell me & I will not attach it.
Please do not get upset if I do not answer your messages & e-mails right away. I get anywhere from 25 to 75 messages & e-mails everyday. I try to answer them all quickly but some take longer than others, but I will get to them!! Currently I am working on messages, requests & transfers from Oct 2012.
Happy Hunting !!

WOW I am just blown away by all you have done for FG. Amazing!
Here is a link to my uncle Art which should be quite familiar to you:
He was the 3rd husband of my Aunt Augusta Bowers Ellerbrook Sutton Johnson Shackleford.
He is said to have been buried at the Pleasant Grove Cemetery IN BELL CITY.
Here is a link to the obit for my aunt, which says the Pleasant Grove Cemetery NEAR ADVANCE:
Except I was that there are at least two Pleasant Grove Cemeteries in Stoddard county alone... (and nearly a hundred in MO)... but none all that close to Advance!
I finally tracked down her grave by calling the mortuary. It is the same Pleasant Grove as for Rev Johnson, (husband #3), but it has a mailing / Google address of the Pleasant Grove Cemetery IN PIKE, MO!!!
BUT apparently all three are the same cemetery, sort of somewhere in a triage between Advance, Pike and Bell City, nestled in a curve of Stoddard Co Road # 307, south of 91 and east of 25...
And it turns out that I'll bet you have been there several times!!!
I spoke to a board member of the cemetery and she is certain that my Aunt Augusta Bowers Ellerbrook Sutton Johnson Shackleford is buried there, because my aunt's grave is near her family's graves, but the mystery #1 is that Aunt Augusta is not listed on the FG 'see all internments' list. (If that really was a complete list, perhaps it was done before her death.)
And mystery #2 is that I cannot find any data on the death or burial of her last husband, Walter Shackleford UN-verified dod: May 28, 1993. Since he was from that area, and she met him while living in Bloomfield or Dexter... there is a chance that he is buried in that same cemetery, (or he could have been sent elsewhere to be with other family, to nobody-knows-where).
So the next time you are in that neighborhood, I would soooo much appreciate it if you could at least verify Aunt Augusta's burial there, and ask if Walter Shackleford is there also... and I shall be forever indebted to you if you could get headstone photos for Augusta, Walter, and Arthur.
I am new and have never started a memorial, so it would be so nice if you could plueeeze set up FG memorials for Augusta (and Walter if you find him there), and then transfer them to me and I'll fill in the details.
(The memorial linked above for Rev Johnson which you set up, is already being maintained by wife of a child or grandchild from Rev Art's 1st marriage.)
Thanks ever so much for all you have done.

|Joyce McClain||Julia Williams Stacy|
David and Jane Williams are my gr gr grandparents. Their daughter, Gelina/Julia married John Lewis Stacy, my great grandparents. When Julia died she was living in Pedro, MO. I have a card edged in black telling of her death. I have been unable to learn where she was buried but believe she might have been buried in the Williams Cemetery since Pedro/Liberal MO was just a few miles to the east of the Williams Cemetery in Crawford Co. I would like to list her as being buried there although I have no proof. Since my computer skills are limited, I wonder if you would mind listing her as being buried in the Williams Cemetery...I can send the copy of the death notice if you will send your e-mail address. My e-mail address is: email@example.com.

In further looking I see that you have Nena Buchanan Russell's parents as Polly Ann and Calvin. That is correct. They are also the parents to Collis P Buchanan.
|Libby Edwards Hamilton||Error|
Thank you for all the work you do on Find a Grave. I noticed an error on my grandfather's listing. My grandfather, Roscoe V. Russell is buried in the Bernie Cemetary. His wife, my grandmother, Nena is listed correctly. Collis P. Buchanan is listed as a child. He was not a child but a brother to Nena. He was married to Eva, who was a teacher in Bernie for many years. Thus Collis' parents are incorrect on his site.
I believe Nena and Collis' parents are buried there as well but will need to check.
