Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired Navy Submariner, retired in 1989. What I would consider to be just "a good ol' boy" from rural Missouri! My main interest in this is giving back for all the information I've been able to get. My family surnames being investigated is: Jackson, Smith, Bowden, Chapman, Rolstad and many others too numerous to list. I cover Miller, Morgan counties, but will branch out into adjoining counties. I will give it my best try if asked and I accept. It is a shame how some of these headstones are deteriorating and no record is being made to ensure they don't die in obscurity! If you are doing this, I challange everyone to get to every cemetery you can reach and take a photo of every headstone in it. We must not forget!

Rev J. M Cheney in Freedom Cemetery
Hi, I would love to add this headstone photo and any others related to my family tree on Ancestry.com with the photo credit to you of course. Please let me know if you object to this or to let me know how you would prefer the photo credit worded. If I do not hear from you , I will assume it is okay to use it. Thanks so much.

Use of photograph
I am seeking permission to use your photograph of the headstone for Ida B Pritchard, Find A Grave # 100354031.
She is a distant aunt of mine through the Prater line, originally from Georgia. I would like to place the picture on my Ancetry.com website . I would appreciate this very much.

Eliza Hagerman #96120536
I was so sure that this was Eliza Ford, daughter of John W. & Rebecca (Hedrick) Ford -- now I see that someone has given her maiden name as Hardy. Am I completely wrong? Or was there a marriage to a Hardy? If anyone knows the family I would like to hear about it; I do see a lot of surnames in this cemetery that are connected in some way to either our Wilsons or our Fords, but the only one I'm sure of is Tom Hedrick.

Child of Joseph Reed
The page for Joseph Warren Reed was a treasured find for me. He would have been my Great-Grandfather on my Grandmother's side. You have listed my Grandmother as one of Joseph's and Elizabeth's children, but apparently had no other information. Virgie Beatrice Reed was born December 18, 1892. She married Walter Denzil Tarwater (born January 21, 1888 in Gallatin, Missouri). They lived most of their married lives in and around Harrisonville, Missouri and had six children. Grandma died in 1968 and is buried alongside Grandpa in the Freeman Cemetery, Freeman, Missouri.

Memorial 81748185
john:
You may have uncovered a marker for which I have been searching many years. It might be that I have been looking in the wrong cemetery. Maria Ella Penrose Edmundson is my Great Grandmother. You upgraded her site with a marker photo. Is the cemetery shown on Findagrave.com the old Masonic/Odd Fellows Cemetery located in Mt Pleasant right outside Eldon, MO?
