|Bio and Links|
I live around Willard, MO. I am blessed with a wonderful husband, 2 wonderful sons, and 2 beautiful grandbabies.|
I got my passion for researching family history from my grandmother, Betty McQuitty Woods. Growing up, I always enjoyed going to cemeteries looking up names and dates with her. I loved hearing stories about contacts she made to learn more family information. She researched over 40 years. How I often wish she were still here to see today's technology and all the resources available! After her death in 1992, all of her research, letters, books and certificates she received over the years were destroyed in a fire so I am starting over.
My family lines I am researching are: Cornog, Fields, Grant, Woods, Cretors, McQuitty, Brown, and Boone. My husband's family is Hall, Shelton, Long, Matthews, Swearengin/Swearingin, Doss and I know there are others that I am still finding out about.
If there is a memorial that I manage that you would like me to transfer to you, please let me know (unless they are my family). Any photos I have contributed hold no copyright so please feel free to use them in your family records.
I also serve as a Trustee on the Rose Hill Cemetery Board (Willard, Greene, MO) and Hickory Grove Cemetery Board (Polk Co, MO).
I enjoy researching for others, as well. My dream job is to be a genealogical researcher and I would love to travel to learn about where my ancestors came from and learn about their lives, but until that dream is achieved, I am an Independent Insurance Agent. I look forward to meeting you all!

|Daniel Harrison||RE: Cornog information|
Amy, below is what I could find on Mack Cornog, hope ti fits space below. It is a few years old and could probably use some updating.
Mack W. Cornog was probably born in Stone County, MO. He was born March 31, 1922. According to death certificate, he died April 25, 1948 in Newton County, MO.
The parents of Mack W. Cornog were Forest and Mattie (McReynolds) Cornog. They are listed in the 1920 census of Stone County, MO, in Pierce Township. Forest was age 27 and Mattie was age 23. Both were born in Missouri, and both of the parents of each were born in Missouri. One child, a daughter, age 1, born in Missouri, is listed with them. Her name is difficult to read, but appears to be Junita.
Forest Cornog is listed in the 1900 census of Christian County, MO, with his parents, Edward W. Cornog and wife Ida. They are living in Galloway Township. Edward is age 30 and Ida is age 28. Edward was born in Missouri, and both of his parents were born in Tennessee. Ida was born in Tennessee and both of her parents were born in Tennessee. Listed with Edward and Ida are four children. The name of Forest is the only legible name. He is shown to be age eight, born in Missouri, The three other children are two sons, ages six and one, both born in Missouri, and a daughter listed at age four and also born in Missouri.
The Latter Day Saints family history site lists the father of Edward Cornog, born 1869, Christian County, MO, as Hiram W. Cornog. The 1900 census of Christian County, MO, lists Hiram Cornog, age 55, born Tennessee, father born Penn., and wife Lucy, age 46, born Tennessee, both parents born Tenn. Listed with them are son John, age 19, born MO: son Charles, age 15, born MO., and son (illegible), age unclear. (This could be a son named Hiram who appears separately in later census of Christian County, MO, born about 1888. Edward W Cornog would have been age 30 in 1900 and no longer living with his parents. The death certificate for Lucy Cornog lists her as born Feb 21, 1846, Tenn., and date of death as March 3, 1921, at Kansas City, MO. Her father is listed as W.W. Tatum, born Tenn, and her mother Brenda Landus, born Tenn.
It should be noted that there is another Edward Cornog listed in the 1900 census of Green County, MO, age 27, born MO, father born TN, mother born TN, with wife Merry and an infant, un-named son, born in 1900. There are many errors in the undocumented information in the LDS site. This Edward Cornog could possibly be the son of Hiram W. Cornog also. Additional research would be needed to determine which Edward Cornog is correctly the son of Hiram W. Cornog.
The father of Hiram Cornog as listed at the LDS site as E. H. Cornog. E.H. Cornog is shown in the 1860 census of Christian County, MO, age 47, born Penn. With him is wife M.H. ,age 45, born Tenn. Listed with them is a son, H.W. Cornog, age 15, born Tenn. This must be the Hiram W. Cornog of later census and the father of Edward Cornog. In 1870 this same E.H. Cornog is listed as Edward Cornog, age 57, born Penn, with wife Nancy, age 54, born Tenn. With them are children Thomas, 22, Elizabeth, 18, Matilda, 15, Margaret, 13, Emma, 11, and Charles H., age 10. Hiram is not listed as he would have been about age 25 and living away from home.
Mattie McReynolds, at age four, mother of Mack Cornog, is listed in the 1900 census of Christian County, MO, with her parents James, age 30, and Tilda, age 25, McReynolds, living in Galloway Township. There is also a two year old daughter listed, however, her name is illegible. There is a death certificate available from State of Missouri for a James McReynolds who died in May, 1936 in Christian County, MO. This may be the father of Mattie. James McReynolds is listed in the 1880 census of Christian County, MO, with his parents, P.W. McReynolds, age 38, born KY, and his wife, Mary J., age 33, born MO. They also have children John T., age 12; Fletcher W., age 6;William L., age 3; and Charley F., age 1.
P.W.McReynolds is listed in the 1900 Stone County, MO, census, age 57, born KY, with wife Mary J., age 52, born MO. With them are children Charles,21, Ollie,12, and Lizzie, 7.
|Daniel Harrison||RE: Cornog information|
Thank you Amy for responding. I am not of the Cornog family, but did a little research for my cousin's wife who is. She and her half-brother's father, Mack Cornog, is buried in the Spokane cemetery. I still have the information that I developed somewhere. As soon as I get a chance I will re-post it for you.
|Leslie Harrison Wyman||RE: Jimmie Franklin Lewis|
Hello! Yes, Jimmy shows buried at Rose Hill, but I can't make out the undertaker's name, unfortunately. I've sent you the link to the certificate, in case it went into your junk file. Jimmy is probably buried near the Hurd's, as Etta Mae Hurd Lewis was his mother. She's buried elsewhere, but his grandparents are there - John A and Anna Z Hurd.
|Marcia Yeargain Walter||RE: Opal Yeargain memorial|
That would be very nice. Bill and Opal Yeargain are my parents. Thank you.
|Jimmie Barlow||Joyce barlow|
Hello am Jimmie barlow and my mom is Joyce Elaine barlow i wanted to say thanks for taking and posting there picture of the head stone on line !!!! I also was able to send her a note and flowers it really made me feel good !!! Going back to there grave isnt easy for me and seeing that pic was a true blessing !!! Thank u and god bless you
I'm posting pics I took of Abner and Margaret Cornog's stones from Great Valley Baptist Church cemetery. Because of the sunlight and shadows the stones are a little hard to read. i may take more pics another time i'm there and the light is more favorable.
|Daniel Harrison||Cornog memorials|
I noticed that you have requested transfer of memorial management for Hiram and Lucy Cornog and the manager is not responding. You may already know this but I discovered out of desperation that I could create a duplicate memorial for an ancestor when the memorial manager is no longer able or willing to respond. Being careful of course not to use any of their photos.
|Margaret||RE: Frank Cretors|
No there is no stone. I went back a second time to ck. index says she is there. It could have been a small stone and is now covered with grass and dirt or more likely there was never one. Will transfer went I get back on the computer. Just signed off

Thank you Amy for the wonderful photo of my great great grandmothers marker. It means so much to me to finally find where she was buried. I'm also hoping to get a pic of my great great grandfather Alfred T. Lusk's head stone. If that's possible let me know. Again thank you so much!

Thanks so much for getting the picture of his marker. Have a great week. Brenda
