The Elusive Ancestor

I went searching for an ancestor, I cannot find him still.
He moved around from place to place and did not leave a will.
He married where a courthouse burned, he mended all his fences.
He avoided any man who came to take the U.S. census.
He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame.
And every 20 years or so, this rascal changed his name.
I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he was blessed; But the weather took engraving, and some vandals took the rest.
He died before the court clerks decided to keep records.
No family bible has emerged, in spite of all my efforts.
To top it off, this ancestor who caused me many groans, just to give me one more pain, betrothed a girl named JONES!!!

Ada Blankenship Larkin
I am brand new to this site and was thrilled to find your listing for Ada Blankenship Larkin. She was my great-grandmother. Her son, Frances (Frank) Larkin was my grandfather. I was so grateful to find all the information you have compiled. I am sharing it with one of my cousins, Linda Arpin Jensen who is the granddaughter of Rosemary Larkin.

James Monroe Sanders
Hi, I am unsure if you are related to James Sanders or just a fantastic genealogist and researcher. I see there is a Missouri death certificate number listed on this memorial. It's been over 50 years but I can't find it on the Missouri Heritage site. Can I access a copy somewhere without having to order it from the State? James mother, Sarah Walden Sanders was a sister to my 2xgreat g'father William Walden. Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the correction about Arnold Miller.
Are you connected with these Millers? My great-grandfather was George Caperton Miller, the same as Arnold. Do you know the name of the cemetery for either George C or Albert W? I'm trying to find someone who knows some details of George's migration to Kansas.

Hi Shani Thanks for the post of Arnold Eugene Miller, a 2nd cousin of mine. You reference in the bio a place called "Ohio, Richardson, Nebraska". I've googled a search for this place but can't find it. Can you help me?

Thank you very much for the transfer of Kevin. My niece would like to know who your husband is?

I think you have the wrong person for this obituary.

Thank you for creating the memorials for my uncle and aunt. This is my Uncle Jack, my mom's older brother. If you are not a relative, I would really appreciate it so much if you could turn the two memorials over to me. Thanks.
