Bio and Links
I love genealogy. I am researching Sherwood, Brentlinger, Sykes, Hendryx/Hendricks in Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee. I hope I haven't offended anyone by flowers that I have put on graves. I think it is nice to add flowers to graves and especially those that have never gotten any flowers.

Thanks so much to everyone for the flowers, notes and tokens left for my aunt, Martha Ann Wells,(Oklahoma) my mama,Sadie Stumpf,step-father John(California)and grandparents Melissa Mae & James E. Sherwood (Oklahoma). Your kindness and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.

^^^^William R. Sherwood is the oldest child of James and Melissa (Hendryx) Sherwood.^^^^

***I do not know at this time if the Brentlingers, the ones without sponsors, that have been transferred to me are ancestors of mine or not. I just agreed to take them because it is my Father's surname and I do have ancestors from Indiana.***

~~~~~~A very warm thank you to all of you who visit my loved ones and leave flowers, tokens and/or notes. I appreciate it so very much~~~~~~

Sorry - No relation whatsoever. Made the entry from an older data base as a courtesy for anyone researching that family.

RE: Mother
Thank you so much for your very kind remarks about my mother's beauty. My Daddy used to say she was his very own Elizabeth Taylor.

Cheers - Kathie

Sherwoods at New Lorimier
Just ran across your memorials for the Sherwoods at New Lorimier here in Cape Girardeau and I think they are very special. Actually I taught school with May Sherwood for a very short time at Jefferson Elementary and enjoyed getting to know her. Since I retired I am trying to take pictures of all the graves at New Lorimier and Fairmount and love doing it. So when I find memorials that catch my eye I want to thank the people who put them there. Ruth

Edith Mae McDonald Brentlinger
Hi Carolyn, I'm researching the McDonald family line, my Great Grandfather was George McDonald, he had a sister Edith Mae McDonald ( Find A Grave Memorial# 7790908) who married James Andrew Brentlinger. I noticed that you have flowers on their memorial pages, are you by chance related to this particular line? If so do you have any information on Edith Mae McDonald? or know of any photos? or possibly know of anybody I could contact for more information? Thanks!

Bessie McMasters Sherwood
Hi Carolyn,

Bessie McMasters Sherwood was my grandfathers sister. I am looking for a picture of her if anyone has one they could post. Her father was D.C. McMasters and is buried in the State Cemetery in Austin, Texas because he was a Civil War Veteran. Bessie's mother Maggie McClean is buried in the Salem Irene Cemetery in Hill County, Texas. If anyone has photo's to share I would love to have them.
