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.

Hello,
Before I process your edit request to link parents to the above (#143155926), may I ask what your source/documentation is?

Thanks,

RE: memorial 67279674 Stephen Ping
Stephen & Nancy are also my third great-grandparents. I descend through William Ping to his son George Ping to his daughter Pauline Ping. Thank you for the info you shared. Do you happen to have a copy of his will?

memorial 67279674
Hi Kelly. I am interested in corresponding with you about one of your memorials, Stephen Ping. Is he one of your ancestors? You posted a picture of him, his wife and grandson on the memorial that I am interested in seeing larger. Also, does the "New Site Cemetery" have records of his being buried there? Thank you for any information you can share. -Rochelle (rochelle.morrow@gmail.com)

I just wanted to thank you for putting up Mrs. Fechling's information. Recently my mother and I found some court documents with her name on them (stating that she was my Great Great Grandfather's second wife) and we couldn't find much information about her whatsoever. We are both thrilled to know where she is now and to fill in that particular piece of the family history. Thank you again for the information you've provided on this website.

RE: Radford and Anne Cannifax
Kelly,

I understand completely!

I am also a direct descendant of the Cannifax (Canafax) family, but down through his brother Benjamin.

I saw only the name "Kelly" as the creator of the memorials, and wasn't sure if you were family, or someone on the "outside" creating them only as a hobby.

I have been working on our family tree for some time, and thought I could do good by maintaining these records.

Please be assured that my request was admirable, and I meant no disrespect to you or the family.

Respectfully,
Roger H. Canafax, Jr.

hi
I was just wasting time and I saw your profile. I didn't know you were on findagrave. I thought I was the only family member who spent their free time in cemeteries. We should get together sometime a do a cemetery together.
