As you can tell from my information I live in Tucson, AZ., which is only 1264 miles from this cemetery. As I was going to be in the area I wanted to stop there to find my Great-grandmothers headstone. Before going I checked F-A-G to see if there were any other requests an to my surprise it had 19. Her maiden name is way off from your spelling an assuming the headstone is right this new find may help you greatly, again assuming they had it right. I also found Melvin's headstone and got a shot of it. If you want to post a request for his headstone I'll attach it to the request for you. Please let me know that you posted it, if you do, as it's 1214 miles outside my normal range. FYI- I found my G-grandmothers headstone and 16 other requests including Rosie's

I am only too happy to transfer ownership to family members. my ggparents and several other family members are buried in the Barrett Cemetery. It is a lovely place.

I noticed that you had left a flower for Fay Wilcox at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs saying that per Tressa Norris the grave is unmarked. Well, I wanted to let you know that it is marked. I just posted a picture of the headstone a few minutes ago.

Thank you so much.
I really appreciate it.

Sorry I thought I had gotten the dates changed; I probably forgot to hit save changes. They are changed now.

I just had my husband look at the picture we have posted and he was standing back farther from the computer and could see that it does appear to be a 4 not a 1. I still have to go to the cemetery to take another photo on saturday though so I will check the stone to make sure exactly what the date is and the age at death.
I am like you if I put it in my family tree I prefer the information to be correct.
|Larry & Susan M.||RE: Charlie Trantham|
Ok, I now understand better. What you have aren't cemetery records what you have is a listing from the book Cemeteries of Oregon County, Missouri. I have that book and I can tell you that many of the entries are not correct. All of the entries I made for Thayer Cemetery were from my husband and I going to the cemetery and reading every headstone in that cemetery in which we created our own book. We did this because we get a lot of requests for that cemetery and the cemetery records are not very good although the 2 men that work there are wonderful about looking things up for us. We also made a book for them because so many of the headstones that we recorded they did not even have in their records. On smaller cemeteries we walk the entire cemetery and find the graves requested, but Thayer is way to large to do that so we knew we need a good record for ourselves. If I had gotten your message earlier today I would have your answer because I was there today taking photos for requests; however I will be there again on saturday and make sure what the headstone says. We use shaving cream if the headstone is difficult to read and it gives us a very clear reading of the stone. Don't worry though we wash the shaving cream off immediatly after we are done so there is no residue left on the stone.

Looking at the photo I have of the headstone it still looks like his date of death is Dec. 21, 1886, but I could be wrong. The death you got from the cemetery records of Dec. 24, 1886 may be a burial date not death date. Before I change the memorial I will go back and look at the headstone again to make sure what the date is. I will do that either Friday or Saturday and let you know what I find.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

they are not listed as being buried in Stone County but that does not mean that they are not. There are many unmarked graves in that cemetery and lots of unreadable ones.
I will go and take a look as soon as the snow stops and it clears up.

I wanted to mention to you that most of the stones that old cemetery are the same.
There are very few new stones; most are old sandstone rocks with dates etched into them.
