Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am currently working on my family tree and my husband's family tree. I apologize in advance to those that I send many SAC's. Sometimes it seems like I'm connected to everyone in a cemetery. I like to get as much information as I can on their memorials, but it is very important to me personally to add maiden names and links. Thank you to everyone who has added information and thank you to those who will in the future.

If you're planning to go to Mount Hope and aren't sure where your family is buried, email me ahead of time and I can send you more information, along with maps of the cemetery. Mount Hope covers a large area and it can be difficult to find a specific burial without a map.

I've completed taking pictures of Mount Hope Cemetery in Webb City, Mo, with the exception of stones added since June 2010, and they are all online. If there wasn't a stone, I took a picture of the space. The pictures that say "space unknown" means I have the block and lot number, but not the space number so I just took a picture of the lot or of an unmarked space in the lot.

I realize that some of my pictures are not all that great, so if you'd like me to try to get a better photo, let me know. If I've made any mistakes or you'd like more information added, just let me know.

Many of the headstone pictures that I've placed on my family's memorials were actually taken by my parents. I have my Mom's permission to use hers and since my Dad's passing, his pictures are now mine. I've created virtual cemeteries for family.

It is not my intention to create duplicate memorials and I try not to but sometimes it happens. Please let me know if I have created a duplicate and I'll remove mine. And I'd appreciate it if you don't create duplicates of ones already on. I am more than happy to transfer management of the memorials I have created unless they are my family. Just click on edit on the memorial and ask for a transfer and include your relationship.

I don't mind sharing the photos I've taken for personal use but I would like to request that others do not take credit for any photos I've taken.

RE: Katherine McGauran
Yes, I would like for you to transfer Katherine McGauran to me, but I would also like to be responsible for her father and mother, Patrick and Rose, and also her sister Mary. They are all four buried together. The other sister Margaret Pondrom is buried in Texarkana and the brother John was buried in Florida. Thanks.

Katherine McGauran
Thanks to you I found out that she did not have a headstone, so we purchased one though Mt Hope Cemetery & had it installed. I just posted the picture today, so you can now remove the blank space picture.

RE: Rose Mitchell Gregg at Mt. Hope
Kelly--Got the double scoop from you in gaining her husband, too, so thank you for Henry Harrison Gregg. His obituary was a whopper!! But he had such a rich (no pun intended) history in Joplin that it needed to be transcribed and entered. Thank you, thank you. Still working on the family. Your assistance in documenting them in Findagrave has been invaluable!

Rose Mitchell Gregg at Mt. Hope
Kelly--you are such a peach! Thank you for transferring Rose so quickly! I am eager to get started on her biography. She did live an interesting life.
I appreciate so much your work at Mt. Hope. It has enabled me to find many of my family!
