Bio Photo An enormous thanks to the army of volunteers who wander graveyards fulfilling photo requests. Minor miracles have been performed simply for the asking and we're grateful.

Permission is granted to use photos I have posted so long as the photos are not modified in any fashion and the use is for non-commerical purposes only.

Nearly every memorial I've added is from a photograph I took graveside.

You are welcome to post additional photos & images on memorials I manage.

Sponsoring Memorials is a great way to honor them. Permanently removes all ads. Only $5. All proceeds go to support

In most cases, I will gladly grant requests for out-of-Guidelines transfers of sponsored Memorials.

Elsewise, I process edits regularly and encourage their submission.

RE: Doughty/Nelson Family
Hi Jack,
Thanks for your reply. I am a Nelson researcher on the Shoemaker line.
Joseph Doughty and Wilson Shoemaker and Elijah Nelson had come to Jasper Co, MO, the three families all from OH but having met and connecting up in Indiana.
They were neighbors and good friends in Jasper Co, MO. Joseph Doughty and wife Katherine named their first son Elijah Nelson Doughty. Whereas Wilson Shoemaker and wife Ruth named their first son Elijah Nelson Shoemaker.
Wilson Shoemaker's mother was from Coshocton Co, OH as was Elijah Nelson and his wife, Margaret Johnson.
I am positive but have no proof that Joseph Doughty's wife Katherine and Wilson Shoemaker's wife Ruth were sisters and the daughters of Elijah Nelson.

Doughty/Nelson Family
Hi Jack.
I was delighted to see your Findagrave post and photos of Elijah Nelson Doughty.
I am still searching for proof that Elijah Nelson Doughty's mother was Katherine Nelson, daughter of Elijah Nelson and Margaret Johnson of Coshocton Co. OH.
And that he was a cousin of Elijah Nelson Shoemaker, the two families, Joseph Doughty and Wilson Shoemaker, friends who lived near Elijah and Margaret Nelson in Jasper County, MO.
Thank you for sharing.

RE: Guthries at Park
You're very welcome. There was a family monument stone also, but I need to go back for it. Found I had forgot to take it.
I also listed some more Guthrie names that were in the same lot. Also a couple named John W. Durby and his wife Bettie. The monument stone has both names, Durby and Guthrie on it so I'm sure they're related. I'll try to look up some of the obits to find out later.

I went to Oakwood today. At lot 810 there is no stone. The area where 810 should be is empty. Sorry.

Current practice today at Fort Smith National
Cemetery is to intern 2 individuals in each
grave site. First interment goes on the bottom
and name is placed on the face of the marker.
Second interment goes on top and name is placed
on the back. Usually the veteran goes first an
then the wife's name is on the back of the marker
However sometimes the wife goes first and her
name is on the face. So, in taking photos, it is
best to look at both sides. In addition, the
grave locator has them in the same Plot #. Long
ago they were placed side by side until they
ran out of space. By the way, Yanks and Rebs
are side by side in Fort Smith National Cemetery
Sorry I got so wordy !

RE: Lillie & Elmer Reed at Sunset
You are welcome, there were some "Home Made" headstones out of cement and possibly marbles or stones, that I think said Reed, but could not read it to be sure. There may have been a couple more also, but I did not take the photos, since there was no way of being sure about them with what info I had with me. Liz
