|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in the history of my ancestors & my husband's ancestors for many years and have visited many of their graves over the years. I enjoy doing research on family members as well as others. It makes me realize how short life really is and how we should leave a positive footprint here. But most of all, how important it is to be prepared to pass from his life in a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.|
I also love my town of Kirksville, Missouri, and enjoy studying its history and the people who made its history. I feel privileged to be a member of the board called Friends of Forest-Llewelln Cemetery in Kirksville, and also a board member of the Adair County, Missouri, Historical Society.
Any photos that I have taken and post on this site are free to anyone. You have my permission to copy them for personal use or post to Ancestry.com or any other ancestral sites you wish as long as it is out of respect for the person represented. I hope you find some of your relatives!
I am happy to make any additions or corrections to memorials; just use the Edit tab and I will make the changes as soon as possible.

Thanks for the great memorial page you created for Dr. Overton Terry Azbill. I was looking for information about him, and everything I could have wanted was on your page. Beautiful job!
Blessings to you, Martha
|Lyn McDaniel||Thanks for the Feaster biographies|
Nicely done, and complete.
Thank you so much for the information on Cora Belle Potter Swank. Her son Charles Verne Swank's wife is buried at Hope Cemetery, too - I'm not sure about Charles Verne Swank himself (1887 - 1954). I don't have a picture for him.

|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: Sections of Forest-Llewellyn|
Thanks for getting back to me. I have a copy of the Forest Llewellyn Cemetery book printed in 1976 and a copy of the cemetery map but I am sure a lot of visitors to the cemetery might be a little confused if they get the info. from memorials on Find A Grave. Since only the Forest and Llewellyn Additions have sections shouldn't the sections at least be listed seperately from the F for Forest and the L for Llewellyn? Example: F-A-25. The Forest-Llewellyn cemetery books Index, that is alpahbitized, has the different additions spelled out followed by the section then the lot number. Abbreviations just don't seem to work very well when it comes to plot locations. I've even come across a few contributors who don't like using them at all even in the bio. area. Just a thought as how to make it easier for others looking for a grave in this very old and large cemetery.

James Reed's tombstone should be in the area of the picture I uploaded. However, when I searched the area on September 11, 2014, I could not find it.
|Mary Crawford||RE: William Lynch|
I do not know where Phoebe is buried. Sorry I can't help you with that.
