My count is unbalanced because I maintain many memorials for several contributors that are no longer on Find a Grave.


I put a great deal of time into creating my own memorials and adding the gravestone pictures and historical information to them from Park Cemetery. Many of them are early day pioneer citizens and the listings are becoming a good reference base for the history of the residents of Carthage, Jasper county, Missouri.

"The country newspaper is truly a family record. It proclaims your marriage, it announces the birth of your children, it gives the obituary notice of a loved one of your family. It not only gives your family record, but the family record of your neighbors. Many do not realize the benefit their home paper is to them."
The Newton County News August 14, 1890

RE: Effie B. Wall
Thank you for the quick informative response. I suspected that she was residing in Los Angelos in 1925 as I have a letter that apparently gives her address as a source for Prunty research. I didn't know she died there. I do know she wrote a few books on her genealogy and other bits of information. Presently, I don't have Ancestry.com and wore out the free offers. My email is slowtrap@yahoo.com.

Powder Mill(s) Carthage
Just wondering if you might have ever assembled a list of those who have been killed over the years working at the powder plants there? (Hercules, Atlas, etc.) One of my ancestors worked there around the turn of the century; WININGER, James Browder # 90907556. I relate one of his stories on his memorial and I always wondered how many died in that one particular explosion. Thanks.

Thank you so much for getting me back to Findagrave. I am really attached to the Geo. Miller record. The cemetery was hard to get into as it is fenced and locked with cattle (including a bull) roaming. I slid under a gate as did my husband, keeping an eye out for the law as we did so. My husband and I traced the Miller family from Kentucky to Oklahoma, visiting each place they lived, stopping in small towns to visit little museums and speak to elderly people who had recollections of the family. We spent several days out at the site of the 101 ranch, Cowboy Hill, and the various museums that hold the ranch memorabilia. We visited the cemetery and graves in Ponca City where Miller family members are buried. The trip from our home in North Carolia to the sad remnants of the 101 is a treasured memory. If someone has something to add I have no problem with that, but I want to retain my record. It means a lot to me.

From the former shirley32olson@yahoo.com, now cammygrammy99@yahoo.com.

I am not still actively transcribing cemeteries and changed my E-mail address a while back to get rid of the nuisance messages. I wasn't thinking about losing my place in the Findagrave records and also at Rootsweb, it didn't occur to me. I also lost all my contacts so it was a big headache.

If you were messaging for a specific reason other than the name change please respond. If you know how to get my cemeteries changed over to my new E-mail I would appreciate it.
