Bio and Links
First of all, I welcome all corrections, additions, and link requests, and I am happy to transfer postings to relatives or (in cases where I'm not related to the subject) to anyone with a special interest in managing a particular person's listing. I'm not in this to rack up "numbers" but to preserve and honor the memory of those who have passed on and help those who may be looking for information about their lives. I always try to add as much information as possible to any posting I make, even those to whom I am not related, and I note where the information is speculative, not to claim I'm right but in the hope that others with more definitive information will come forward so we can figure things out as best we can.

I have loved searching through old graveyards since I became interested in genealogy at age 12. I am the "cyber-founder" of three cemeteries on this site, Prospect Cemetery in Bois d'Arc, MO, Johns Chapel near Ash Grove, MO, and Yeakley Chapel near Republic, MO, the latter of which was actually founded by my ancestor. Besides these "top 3," several other members of my family may be found in Wade Chapel, also near Republic. Although I visit these cemeteries once or twice a year, I live in the Washington, DC area (unfortunately!).

I feel it is a real labor of love to remember our ancestors and keep their memories alive, including in ways they never could have imagined such as this site. As long as they live on in our hearts, they are never really gone.

In addition to visiting my own people, I always end up visiting famous people's graves wherever I go. I've made 3 pilgrimages to Jim Morrison's grave, 2 to Elvis', and 5 to Lenin's plus one to Marx's. Wandered around Recoleta but never found Evita. The saddest grave I've ever visited - Andy Gibb's. Worst maintained public cemetery - Highgate in London. Spookiest - the Kaisergruft in Vienna (it was so overwhelming I had to flee!).

By the way, I am also a graduate of Grinnell College, alma mater of the creators of this wonderful site. Last but not least, on behalf of myself and at least 3 previous generations of my ancestors who were fans before me, I would like to say Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals, World Series 2011 Champions! I was at Game 6, the greatest single event I have ever seen, as well as Game 7. Absolutely awesome!

Your memorial:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=richards&GSiman=1&GScid=31188&GRid=64005134&

I want to alert you that I am adding a headstone photo on your memorial for David Richards. Please take notice that the birth date on your memorial (based, I assume, on the death certificate) is not the same as what is on the headstone.

I leave it to you to make a note indicating the discrepancy, if you so desire.

#62602951
More info: MO d.c. #31449, Informant Nancy J. Jackson (widow of John S.C. Jackson (Edward's brother), of Republic, MO).

Hello Kelly Robbins,
Would you please ask the find-a-grave programmers to add one line after each edit, for Ref:

This having to communicate everything twice, once for the info and yet again for the Reference is getting tiresome. The two communications also get sent to different places: Edit ends-up under the edit tab and the second for Reference gets sent either to copy-of-email or under Messages, such as this one.

Help! Please. Thank you, B.

RE: Clarence Shull
No, I don't need his memorial transferred. He was a brother of my great-grandmother. That's all the info I really have about him. Thanks.

This might be Frank Deloss Babcock b 12/1/1899 NE, lived in Calif in 1930 with wife Edna, Cora could be a 2nd wife. I too lost track of Frank after 1930. Just a thought since the SS # was issued in CA.

RE: Sarah Sissell Clark
Thank you for your help. My relative is Sarah. They are in the book "of life immence" and part of my extended Sissel family. Dr Clark was a minister before he became a county doctor. He married my g grandfather Moses to his wife Mary. Sarah was a true county girl and the pair made the talk of the town. She had her hill county ways and he was well off.

RE: Susie Johnson Spears
Sure, I'll be happy to manage Susie's posting. I'm going to Mo. in May, visit Yeakley and will take a photo of the two headstones: Susie & Thomas. I also have a photo of her sister, Catherine Harrelson Johnson, my great-grandmother & hope to post it soon plus adding some bio. Thank you.
