I'm not familiar with where Saint Luke's Cemetery is located. Can you send me the street address and I'll try to get these headstones photographed. I knew this couple when I went to church at Saint Luke's Episcopal Church back over 20 years ago but I sure don't know about any cemetery there at the church. Thanks

I have a list of cemeteries to offer to the fix forum but people tell me that is slow. It would be better for people to get it right in the first place. Some of those duplicate cemeteries are empty or emptying because I have been telling people they had posted to a phantom duplicate. Latitude and longitude map a cemetery in a modern way, but I think it is important to also reference the the little family ones the way they first appeared on maps, and that is by Township, Range, Section, part of section. Marvin Wilhite, historican for the Saline County Historical Society, told me yesterday he had just finished correlating the 1876 plat map data with the 1896 plat data with recent plat maps and the 1967 Saline County History. The old plat maps have nearly all the family cemeteries marked. To locate by the traditional method, (Township, Range, Section) would be a big plus and help people easily see if the cemetery is really on the landscape. You can also use a current plat map with roads marked to find it. Because of postal consolidation, half the county has a Marshall mailing address. People should use local place names on cemetery pages instead of the county seat town that may be miles away. Those local place names are all menu options, so I often suspect that someone listing a cemetery as "Marshall" when it isn't in or near Marshall may be lost.
|Rhonda Brown||RE: Browns In Grundy Co, Mo.|
To my knowledge my husbands family is no relation. His Browns came to Ray county in the early 1800's from TN so it is possible but I haven't found any that trailed up there yet. They settled in the Richmond area and for the most part his direct line stayed there. Some cousins etc went further west. Our line comes through Thomas B Brown, War of 1812, first generation to come to MO. His son Thomas Ashley Brown m. Martha Crowley. Another son James Daniel Brown married Martha's sister Phoebe Crowley. If you find a connection to that I can help out. All of them had tons of children.

Just looked at your additional photo. Wish the cemetery page had location information and history. Please have a look at Saline County's duplicate and misplaced Find A Grave cemeteries. The percentage is amazing. Also is seems so hard for someone other than the cemetery page maker to add location information and history. Marvin Wilhite, historian with the Saline County Historical Society, told me he just finished correlations among the 1876, 1896, and recent plat books to confirm locations of old cemeteries. And he knows alternate cemetery names. He recently helped me on one really obscure one, Camp Creek. I hope people consult Wilhite before they make a cemetery page for an old one - or do their homework.
|Cynthia Farmer-Nold||Thanks for the Heath Creek info|
What I have noticed since joining Find A Grave is a lot of duplicate and misplaced cemeteries on the Saline County list, so I'm trying to figure out what is real and what isn't. For example, we have 2 Mount Woodland Church cemeteries, but the church and its associated Hilldale cemetery is in the next county east. We have the Old Lamine Cemetery at Marshall when it is really at Lamine near the Lamine River in Cooper County. We have the Penensula Cemetery which is really Peninsula Cemetery across the county line into Cooper County. The Rock Memorial Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Marshall, is really Memorial Presbyterian at Napton. South Fork Cemetery south of Sweet Springs got listed as Saline County instead of Pettis. If you look at the whole list of cemeteries, it's amazing. Perhaps that is because some cemetery creators don't know where they are. You explained that the cemetery was in Saline County, but there is no location description or map if someone else wants to find it. But you cleared up this for me while others continue to misplace cemeteries. Thanks.

You posted photo(s) of a Heath Creek named cemetery to a Saline County Heath named cemetery, but the sign you photographed said Smithville, Missouri. Is it possible you posted the photo on the wrong Heath Creek? The Heath Creek cemetery in Saline County is east of the junction of I-70 and Highway 65 (called Marshall Junction). If you go further east of Marshall Junction on I-70 to "J" road and exit and go south, the Heath Creek cemetery in Saline County is about 1 1/2 miles south of I-70 and on the east side of "J" road. Please have a look to see if your Smithville denoted cemetery photo needs to go to another location further northwest in the state. Thanks.

I haven't got any of those names in my Spinks book. My Spinks came from Maryland, Virginia. and Kentucky. They are probably related.Sorry I am no help.
Thanks for the information for Jessee & Robert. I have posted it on their memorial pages. Karen
