Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors and they themselves fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Indian Wars,the War for Texas Independence, the Civil War on both sides and World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.
Donít violate copyright.
This may be the most difficult one to adhere to. You must be careful where you take information from, and how you use it. While facts (such as dates and places of birth, marriage, and death) are not copyrightable, the words used to convey that information are. Do not directly copy text but use your own words. Even more important are images. Remember that copyright currently lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator. All those family photographs in your possession? Copyright belongs to the person who took the photograph, and to his/her heirs. The key date at the moment is 1944. By Michael J. Leclerc (Prof. genealogist)

RE: Susan Kelly
Oh, it's ok Bonnie! My work schedule hasn't been the greatest lately, so I am behind on some things. I do get the edits processed as fast as I can, but I hadn't checked my e-mail for your other information yet at the time you sent that. It's ok. :-)

RE: Susan Kelly
Hi Bonnie! I hadn't seen your D/C information yet and that's why it isn't posted. :-) What I don't like is people adding Missouri d/c's to the photo section if they are available online. You've got to give me a little time Bonnie. :-) I do add all the information people send me, if it's right, but sometimes it takes me a day or so to get to it. My work schedule keeps me busy. I'll be getting it on, ok?

RE: Sherry Kovar
Hi Bonnie, thanks for sending me a message. It's nice to meet you. Sherry passed on the night of 07 June. There were over 300 people who came to visit at the funeral home on Thursday. She was loved by so many! I have been married to her son, Gary Wayne Jr for 9 years. I have met so many Kovar family and friends this past week, it is unbelievable! I am also a member of the College Station DAR. My 7x G-Grandfather on my Dad's side fought in the Revolutionary War. I will let Gary Sr know you messaged me. Take care!

RE: Mary King Watson
I haven't had it transferred because I'm sure as I think there are other relatives out there but it would be nice to have it transferred.

RE: Elizabeth Leslie
I don't think you can find the grave at Leslie Cemetery. It is "in the Thomas corner in the row
with the children".....those are just rocks. Someone described seeing the headstone (just really a rock with the name scratched on it) and said her name was spelled McCage. There is a huge bush in that corner and you can tell there are stones under there but it is impossible to get to them. At least I wasn't going to do that last summer when I was there. I live in SW Missouri and usually try to go to the Marshall/Leslie area about once a year to do research (courthouse, library, etc.)...The Searcy County Library in Marshall has a lot of genealogy stuff in their genealogy room in the basement.
If you live anywhere in the vicinity we should try a meet up with our info one of these days! :) Glad to find yet another cousin!!!
