Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in February of 1948 in Shelbina MO, as was my father before me. I grew up in Pittsfield IL [1949-1957], Danville IN [1957-58], and back to Pittsfield [1959-1962] during elementary school years. I graduated high school in Tuscola IL [1962-1966]. Dad was a Teamster, and his job had us hopping around!

Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Lord and my reason to live. He has forgiven my sins and rescued me from a life gone bad.

I want to honor my forebears with these memorials. Patriarch: Richards, Edward [1678-1755]
of Manchester, Lancashire England and later Hampstead, Maryland.

On my mother's side: Long family of Frederick County VA, and the Heathman family.

I welcome any and all communication with "cousins" and fellow descendants.

Anyone's corrections, additions, or suggestions are also welcome. My goal is accuracy and completeness.

Richard or Richards
Maybe you can assist me. I found the below in the West Virginia vital statistics. Sparel Richard married to Catherine Mildred Carter. You show Sharrell Richards. Also the birth certificate of my grand father William Clarence Richard (7th child of Sparel Richard and Catherine Mildred Carter) shows Richard not Richards. Any light you can shed would be appreciated.

William Clarence Richard
Birth Date: 27 Feb 1895
Birth Place: Glenn, Clay, West Virginia
Sex: Male
Mother: Catherine Mildred Carter
Mother's Age:

RE: My Mother
You are welcome Harold. I noticed you are from Shelbina. My parents and most of my relatives are from there, or close by. Take care -

Westlawn-Hillcrest Vets
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.


If you have already received this message, please accept our apologies for the duplicate message.

RE: Mary Long
You are very welcome. We got only 2 of the three you requested, though. Didn't find Nellie. She could have been on the other side of the one with Carrie, but the tombstone was leaning against it's base, with weeds and poison ivy all around.
The cemetery is in sad shape. Someone had brush-hogged some of it though, and sprayed weed killer, which let us take the pics we did. Also soneone had put up a nice sign with the Cemetery name on it. I put a pic of it on the main Granville page, hasn't been approved yet by Findagrave.
Thanks for your kind words. So appreciated!!!
