Wanda and I enjoy getting out and walking the cemeteries, photographing the headstones, and fulfilling photo requests. If the photo we have supplied to fulfill your request is not to your liking please let us know and we will do our best to get a better one. Sometimes we might add more photos then you want on the memorial and if that is the case we can delete what you don't want. We will be more than happy to make corrections, add information or transfer the memorial to you if they are a member of your family.|
We have been helped in our family research many times by information on FindAGrave and hopefully others will be helped by information we have added.
When making suggested edits for memorials please give your source of information.
We will not make edits based on assumptions. Thank you!

Hello Harold and Wanda,
I live in California and have been doing research on my family, many of which lived in Missouri. I found a Find A Grave memorial for my great grandfather Uriah E Clark, which was created by you. Thank you so much for this. I have been searching for the grave of Uriah and his wife Emma Clark (nee Lauderbaugh)and his daughter Minnie Clark (never married). I have still have not located Emma or Minnie's grave.
I know this is asking a lot, but if you are ever in the Forest Hill Cemetery and can find the headstones for all three, I would be grateful beyond words.
Here is the information for the three of them. As I said, there is a Find A Grave record for Uriah E Clark but not for Emma and Minnie. And no photographs of the 3 headstones.
Uriah E Clark, b. 17 Jun 1861, d. 01 Sep 1923, m. Emma Lauderbaugh 27 Nov 1889.
Emma Clark, b. 9 Feb 1867, d. 06 Feb 1959.
Minnie Clark, b. April 1890, died some time after 1959 in or around Kansas City, MO. Never married.
Thank you so much for your contributions to the lives of so many people.
Lynnette Clark (Lewis)

Thanks so much! Yes,I would prefer a photo of a clean headstone for my grandmother.
Thank you for transferring the memorials. It is a small world-the Truitt's are on my mother's side of the family. Just to show you how small a world I"ll tell you a little story. My parents lived in Sacramento CA and had a family with 5 kids living next door. The "neighbors" decided to move to IA and bought a motel. Years later I moved from KS to Eden Prairie, MN. My parents told me the "neighbors" lived in Eden Prairie! We looked them up when they visited me and in the conversation, I found out that they worked at an insurance company. The name sounded familiar, and I asked if they knew some other friends of mine that had been in the military in KS with me and moved home to MN. Mary was an underwriter. They knew both of them! Not only that, but later my sister moved to Cornville, AZ and found out that the "neighbors" were in Cottonwood which is the next town over. I've lost track of them, but they'll probably pop up again. LOL
If you have any requests in my area, west Cleveland, I'd be happy to accommodate you.

Not a problem. There is a lot of bad information, so don't mind at all. If you'd like to transfer the following, I would appreciate it.
Mary A Boyd Taylor
Mary Wilson Taylor
There may be more, but I need to confirm first. There seems to have been many ancestors that were there for a while, but moved on.
Thank you for the work that you're doing

Mary A Boyd was the wife of John Calvin Taylor, son of John Taylor and Sarah Crawford. He was half brother to Stewart Freemont Taylor. Here is a excerpt from a document by my great Aunt regarding her mother's Taylor family.
"According to Uncle Calís son (Cal is John Calvin Taylor and son of John Taylor and Sarah Crawford-half-brother to Margaret Taylor Foster), John Calvin Taylor, there has been a John Calvin Taylor for several generations back. Uncle John Calvin Taylor first married Mary Boyd, who lived only a short time. He was then married to Sarah Aiken. Their children that are still living are John Calvin, Hugh, Lorene Bell, Mary and Cleda."
Mary Wilson was the 4th wife of John Taylor. Here is another excerpt.
"Before 1876, a great aunt gave to Mary Wilson a set of Ice Tea Spoons that she had ordered made that cost $5.50. These were given to Margaret Angeline Foster about 1888 having the initial J.G. on stem for Jane Gilbreth making the spoons 162 years in 1938."
Hope this helps

|Mike Hughbanks||Thak you|
Harold and Wanda,
Thank you so much for the picture of the Ludine's grave marker. It is very much appreciated.
|Renee Stacey||Maud Ross|
Thank you so much! This was my Great-grandfather. He disappeared before my grandfather was born. He never met him nor knew where he went. I can't believe that I found him!
|Sheila Stehlik-Ivanoff||John Wesley Gainer|
Thank you for adding a picture. I take it he doesn't have a marker.
Do you know if the cemetery office would have any info on his death? I sent for a death certificate and they couldn't find one.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
