John Wesley Surlet

Ada Belle Surlet King 1919-2012
Alpha Cleo "Pete" Surlet Hutson 1921-2010

Ray William Surlet 1930 (still living)

Dora Belle's death certificate shows her burial in Kenyon Cemetery and I have a photo of her family beside her fresh grave, on a hillside out in the country. Fairmount does not show if or when she may have been exhumed and brought there. I would love to know when if and when she was moved and appreciate any help you could give me solving this "mystery"!

4 memorial pages at Fairmount
Hello John Hinkle: It has been a long time since we have communicated. I tried to send you an e-mail at the address above but it came back. I am asking that your transfer 4 of your memorial pages to me because they are all men who fought in the Civil War in the "Colored Troops" and all lived here in Cape Girardeau. Denise Lincoln has been working on a book she is writing about 13 men who fought for the Union Army during this war and she is planning to have an event for them in early October. Mr. Crites at the city cemetery office has really helped getting ready for this and several of us will be there on a Sunday afternoon to tell about each of these people. They wanted me to fill in their biography (as researched by Denise) on their find-a-grave page. i could send you the paragraphs and ask you to do it, but it would be easier for you if they were transferred to me.
Here are their names: John Snyder,#18384210; George Hampton #18125293; John GAle #18112696; and Tony McGee #18295362 Thank you so much. My find-a-grave number is: 47139781

Take over management of grave

I would like to manage the memorial for Tina Sanders #7378511. She is my great aunt. I have not seen any of the updates I have sent you and would like to take care of them myself.

Pauline Andrews Breeden
We are researching family information and discovered my husband's father's brother on find a grave. He is Lewis Wertman Breeden and Pauline is his wife. Can you tell us how you discovered her maiden name Andrews?
Thank you

Could you verify if this is a duplicate of the same grave for headstone # 18754, My records show a Harry R Duschell born in Oklahoma in 1916.

Thelma Mae Gohn Davis
John, my aunt Thelma Mae Gohn Davis (Jun 22, 1907 - Apr 17, 1995) and husband Amos Davis are buried at Cape Girardeau. There appears to be an entry for Thelma Mae Tidwell Davis, which I think is for my aunt, but her maiden name was Gohn. Since the dates match, I'm assuming the maiden name and the relationships attached are incorrect. Please let me know if I need to create one for my aunt.

Thank you

death date
Looking at your listing for Amanda B Schrader on findagrave it is 1911 for a death year but the photo of the stone shows Jan 23 1941

Emmet A. Summers
On your gravesite for Emmet A. Summers: You have his birth year as 1864, and that is what is on his tombstone. He was, however, born on 12 May 1868. That is the date given on a social security record. The 1900 census states May 1868. Other census records list his birth as 1868. I have a hunch someone made an error on the stone. You can change it if you want to.
