Bio and Links
I believe there is much to be learned about a family when you track to the cemeteries. They peacefully hold a wealth of 'clues'. We can learn of other family members whose final resting place is in or near the same location. Monuments reflect the 'times' the individual lived in; in many cases their trade, religion, military experience, sometimes even their interests, like Brotherhood of Masons or Woodsmen of America, etc. A headstone is, in many ways, the last remaining evidence that this individual actually walked the face of the earth. It is an eternal tribute.
We must remember that the information found on the headstones might not be factual but rather an 'oral history' from close family members. Cemeteries are wonderful place to begin searching for your ancestors.
We each have our own 'History in Headstones'.

Winnie Lane Dunn
Hi Sherry! Was wondering if you have any information on Winnie daughter of Randolph and Biddy. She was married to my great, great, great uncle Eliab Dunn but the last record I have of her was in the 1900 census showing she was age 71 and widowed in Wayne County, Mo. Trying to find any record of when and where she may have died. Thanks for all you do on Find A Grave!

Nancy Ann Todd Ham Whitworth
I sent you corrections are Nancy Ann (Annie) to correction her death date as I pulled up her death certificate and it does show Nathan Todd as her father. Not sure if you want to change her last name to Whitworth since it was her married name when she died (married Alexander Whitworth Nov 18, 1894 in Butler County, MO) so left it up to you.

Jacob Lane
I am wondering if you have any information that could help me out:
Jacob Lane is my 2nd great grandfather. My great grandmother is Alice Belle Lane. She is listed on the 1880 census as Bell Reynolds, daughter of Jacob Lane. In all other records, she is listed as Alice Belle Lane. She later married my great grandfather William Thomas.
Do you have any info on her?
I am wondering if the census worker made a mistake and put Reynolds down as her last name because the Lane's lived next to the Reynold's or did they adopt her from the Reynold's. We are unable to get a death certificate on her because she died in Feb 1914 which is when they started recording deaths in Arkansas.

RE: shadrick Inman
I do not remember if I have answered your message or not. Please forgive me if I have.
My connections to Amie (Amy) is through her first husband, George W. Eddington. He is a brother to my 2nd great-grandfather William L. Eddington. I found George's Civil War records on On one of the cards it listed Amy (Amie) as his widow, and she is applying for his pension.The date on the card is 1894.George deserted more than once during the war, only to get caught and brought back. The last time he was not so lucky and ended up in Andersonville Prison. Where he died. Hope this helps.

Lane Family History
I am the great-great granddaughter of Abraham Lane, one of Randolph and Biddy's children. You seem very well informed on the Lane Family and was wondering if you would be able to share some details with me or possibly direct me where to look.

Thank you.

Thank you!
What an amazing record and service you are creating! It seems that every time I find a family record on F.A.G. the contributor is Sherry Link and so much additional back round info. I know how much research and time you are giving. We Meadors descendants are so fortunate that so many were buried in the Bolton Cemetery and that you have taken on and been so faithful in your task. My aunt Alice Meadors Lack took me out on those country roads once to Bolton in the spring time when the cemetery was full of those beautiful yellow flowers all over the grass. She took me around to pay respects to the many, many relatives who rest there. A trip I will not forget. Thank you.
