|Bio and Links|
I kept putting this short bio off, but after doing photo requests for people and "meeting them" through their bios, I decided it was time. I am a retired school teacher who loves doing genealogy work and exploring cemeteries. I love the concept of Find A Grave where people in different areas are so willing to help each other with photos. When my husband and I are fulfilling photo requests, we sometimes add more stones to a cemetery. I am always willing to "give these up" to family members who can add more information. Just ask.|

|Carol Lynn White||America Sarvis|
I don't know if America M. Sarvis B:1847, ever married, I tried looking in the area for the name America, but was not successful.
She, their mother Mary B:1823, or her brother Henry S. B: 1850 were not heard from after the probate wrapped up in 1856.
There were quite a few pages with the name spelled "Sarvice", and some with "Sarvis" which is correct.
Everyone was in the 1850 Greenfield, Dade, Missouri Federal Census. By 1860 everyone had scattered, and a lot of them went to Iowa, because their uncle Jonathan Sarvis was there.
I have asked Dade County to do a more extensive search to see if they missed something, like a remarriage of the mother, she was quite young.
I also asked Hopkins, TX to do a search for the two older siblings, and was told I have 25 pages of lineage on the way, so I hope to have some more juicy stuff this week.
|Carol Lynn White||Catherine Sarvis Bunnell|
Thank you for the very nice photo of Catherine's grave. I noticed that the name is spelled differently on the stone, so I changed it through the edit tab. Also, I just received probate records for her father, and her given name was Julia Cathryn Sarvis.She was a twin to her sister America M. who I cannot find. She may be going by her middle name as well, but it wasn't different in the probate records.
I learned quite a bit from those records. A great find.
Thank you again, for all the edits.

|Roger and Sue Cramer||RE: Mary L. HARDESTY|
Thank you for adding Mary's death notice.
|Carol Lynn White||Carl Gustafsen|
Thank you for the nice photo of Carl's grave, and all of your help with edits.
|Carl Bennett||RE: Jennie Elwell|
Looks to be beyond reasonable doubt to me.
Thank you so much for conferring with me!
|Carol Lynn White||George SARVIS|
Thank you so much for all of your edits and photos.
Yes, George married Anna Maria Gustafsen. To my knowledge, they had no children.
A transfer would be nice, although not necessary. I love the new editing system, for the most part, if the contributors see that they have edits, it works pretty well.
Thank you again, the photos are wonderful.

|Carol Lynn White||SARVIS in Newtown Cemetery|
Thank you for getting back to me.What a shame about the damage to the cemetery.
I am just getting started on the Sarvis line, wrapping up the "White" line, which is huge.
Henry Madison and May Preston Sarvis, along with their 7 children, were all living in Dade County, MO in the 1850 census.
By 1853, it appears both of George's parents were dead, and the children scattered. Iowa is where George settled.
I do not have names and dates of the babies who died. It appears that baby Henry Madison Sarvis was their first, being born in 1871. Harriet next in 1872. Then there is a gap between children, with the next living child, Harry, born 1885. The rest came every two years, with Azella the last in 1891.There may have been some after her, but no more by the 1900 census.
Ten total, five living, according to the census, and this article.
Perhaps you have this, or have access to it.
"Excerpt from "Avoca Iowa-Celebrating 125 years-1869-1994 by Harriet Larson, contained in Jill and Ray Family Tree. "George M. Sarvis
George Madison Sarvie (Marr) and Susan Donaldson were married in 1869 and farmed around the Newtown area until they moved to Avoca. They had ten children, five of whom died in infancy and are buried in the Newtown Cemetery.
Hattie was born in 1872 in a log cabin near Avoca. She married Henry Blust. They both became licensed morticians in the early 1900s and retired in 1946.
Harry Sarvis married Josephine Gross. They farmed near Avoca. Harry later had a trucking business called Iowa-Nebraska Transportation Company, a well known firm in the Midwest. They had on child, Maxine Sarvis, who lives n Omaha.
George married Lettie Meggers who died at the birth of their child, Lettie Meggers Sarvis. Later he married Anna Gustafson. They lived in Avoca most of their lives.
Bert Sarvis married Fern Ward of Walnut. Fern died at the birth of their child, Pauline Von Glahn, who lives in California. Bert married Alma Parre in 1920. They had two children: Delbert Sarvis who is deceased, and Harriet Larsen who lives in Avoca.
Zella Sarvis, the youngest child, married Peter Anderson, a farmer near Avoca. They adopted Beilliam Alphonse. They had two daughters, Darlene and Wilma, both of whom live in California."
I have found nothing to support this adoption of "Beilliam Alphonse", not even a mention of this child in any census.
They did however, adopt Zella's niece, Pauline Pearl Sarvis, after her mother died in childbirth, and she is listed with them in census records.
Any information from you would be wonderful. Thank you again, Carol Lynn.

Barbara, I can't thank you enough for the time and effort you've put into the Fowlers' memorials. That shaving cream is a neat trick!!! Great photos, and your fast turnaround is much appreciated. Thank you for making time to do all this. --Debbie
