I have lived in the St. Louis area for over 30 years although I grew up in Jackson, Missouri. I attended New Bethel Baptist Church (the original building too)and was baptised in a creek as the original church had no running water.
My mother and some friends helped me start working on my family tree and once I began I haven't stopped. It has been enlightening and exciting expecially when I hear from distant new relatives and can share information.
Find A Grave Memorial has been helpful to me and I have enjoyed trekking through many of the cemeteries in Southeast Missouri. I hope that any pictures I have contributed will be helpful to others. Anyone wishing to use them has my permission to add them to their family tree.
Thank you Hi Marty, I see that you were the individual that uploaded a picture of my Grandmother's grave. Her name was Elsie Marie Moore Farrow. She is buried at the McLain's Chapel Cemetery. I wanted to give you my thanks for this. I live in Orlando. And I'm not able to visit and I liked that I was able to see her grave here. Thank you, Jenna Allen
RE: James Ackman Marty-Thank you so much for allowing me to add the information, I really appreciate it. I have now transferred the memorial back into your excellent care. I'd like to offer you, and your family, my sincere sympathy on the loss of your mother.~Regards, Laura.
