Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: ~ ~ Please send corrections and or updates; I want things to be accurate! As one "graver" said about Find A Grave, "Those who think it is only for locating graves have a narrow imagination."

Remember........."That which you share, multiplies and divides. That which you withhold, diminishes and dies." W. Clement Stone

~ The unfolding history revealed during research of families is so interesting, fascinating, but sometimes tragically sad, causing one to wish they had studied history more astutely and to have listened to stories told by our elders when young ~

I'm most interested in helping Nancy Brewer, aka "I Remember When", in her effort on Find A Grave to recognize the pioneers and builders of my home town of Carthage, Missouri.

~ Visit my Websites. ~

NOTE: Several contributors have allowed me to update their memorials by transferring to me then upon completion I return them, ~ ~ if they so desire.

Would also enjoy your comments, corrections, and would dearly love to be given all of my relatives and dearest friends of whom I've deeply researched on Find A Grave which are created by others.

I am a retired civil engineer (raised in Carthage, Missouri(ah) till 1944), with at least three known 3rd g,grandfathers veterans of Revolutionary War, one 2nd g,grandfather (served two years) & two g,grandfathers veterans of the Civil War with father a veteran of WW I, my brother & myself, veterans of WW II, ~ ~ who well over ten years ago was given a WebTv and have since enjoyed setting in my easy chair in Naples, (until November 2006 with moved 35 miles north to Shell Point Village near Sanibel Island, Lee county, Florida), doing genealogy on it till it went out of business 30 SEP 2013, when my 79 websites were transferred by Pris Weathers to host site, so now I'm using a computer.

On 25th May 2010, became oldest in my paternal Boggess line, for thirteen generations, to at least the 16th century, when becoming older than our veteran of the Revolutionary War, Samuel Boggess (1742-1825), with only my maternal great,grandfather, John A Flora, having lived around three years longer as of this writing.

Family lines of most interest to me:
FLORA, Hagee, Shults/z, Wallick.
BOGGESS, Knight, Luke, Robinson, Wood.

Also included among my "Memorials" are all, including 9 blood related, with only 15 listed by others, within this 1964 abandoned Methodist church one acre cemetery we restored in 2004, ie: Point Pleasant

Well in excess of a hundred blood and/or shirt-tail relatives, including a 17-1/2 y/o Burmese cat, have been transferred for my management (one, deleted because she is living) and have transferred hundreds to others. Several others, mostly by mega-number holders are with incorrect information, will NOT correct or stubbornly withheld from me, and refuse to add family links and/or bios. I would like very much to gain management of all my family's Memorials plus those of special interest, on Find A Grave and I'm most ready to share with others.

Several memorials with inactive contributors, have been transferred to me which now have biographies and family links added, helping other researchers.

Many cohorts throughout the states have helped me by sharing family information, pictures, etc for my many booklets which were freely distributed to libraries, universities, historical groups, family members, etc and now my many web-sites with documented information of those researched that are related, some by only a thread.

Much of my research is also filed in some twenty or more states with USGenWeb archives, (should the link NOT open, change "org" within link to "net") and on some on Pris Weathers wonderfull website and also found on my Amarillo (formerly of Graham), Texas friend's Worldconnect tree, some of which I have used for Find A Grave memorials, search his index for name: Daryl

Hi Bill,

I understand. I went ahead and transferred her memorial to you. Don't feel compelled to transfer it back if you wish to maintain it, we still have plenty of other memorials left to maintain!

Would like to see the bio section when you are done though so if you think of it drop us or Chris a line after you update the memorial.

RE: Wieden & Thuener headstones
NEVER EVER think you are bothering me. Yes I am busy but not to you and others with the web-site.
If there are names on the bottom of the monuments, which I think one did, you can see them when you click on the photo and it is larger
