Bio and Links
I am a retired accountant. I've been doing genealogy for about 15 years, working with my sister. I love to camp and my husband and I go out as often as possible.If anyone finds a mistake in any of my entries, please let me know so I can correct it. I would appreciate supporting documents with these corrections. If you have any additional information, I would be happy to add it.I have added all available photographable tombstones in Big Adkins Cemetery, Eugene Township, Carroll County, Missouri. There were several very old sandstone tombstones that could not be cleaned and read. If you find one that is your ancestor, let me know and if it isn't also mine, I will be happy to transfer it to you.Don't ask me for transfers or to make changes that aren't verified if you don't have an e-mail address or allow public postings on your own page. If I can't verify certain info or you don't care enough for me to be able to explain my own actions--or lack thereof, then don't ask in the first place.

RE: Palmyra Cemetery (Palymra)
The person that took the survey of the cemetery didn't take photos but I may be able to find a volunteer that would be willing to take them after the snakes quit crawling. I will start asking around and will send you a message if I get someone. Yes, I will ask them to delete the Palymra Cemetery. Thank you!!

Palmyra Cemetery (Palymra)
Hello, I am Vicki Evans and work in the Genealogy Room of the Greenup County Public Library. During Find A Graves Community Days volunteers and I have been adding graves from our county wide survey and noting duplicate cemeteries in Greenup County Kentucky. We found a duplicate for Palmyra Cemetery. Yours has two listings, the grave of Joseph Willis #63578257 and a memorial for Elizabeth Willis #63578458. The other Palmyra has 5 listings. I would like to ask you to transfer your listings into the other Palmyra Cemetery. We will be adding 15 more graves to this cemetery within the week. Joseph is in our survey so we know for sure that he has a stone. Elizabeth isn't included in the survey so we can't verify her stone. This cemetery is abandoned and so overgrown, there could be a stone there but if it's fallen over there could be as much as an inch or two of dirt covering it. :( Thank for all that you do for Find A Grave.

RE: William & Elizabeth (Pollack) Miles
Hi June,

I just checked your bio and noticed that your contact info specifies to use a public message to reply to your posts.

You left me a message on May 19th offering to transfer William Miles (71011429) and Elizabeth Miles (71011695) to me.

If that offer is still available, I would be grateful if you would transfer them to me.

Thank you for the offer and the work you done with their memorials.

RE: Sarah Catherine (Allomong) Estrich
I am probably telling you things you already know, but Willis Albert Estrich was quite an interesting man. He graduated from Tri-State College at Angola Indiana in 1903 and from the University of Michigan in 1908 with a Law degree. He briefly set up a law office at Bryan Ohio before moving to Rochester NY. He published a number of legal tracts while at Rochester; his last official position was Editor-in-chief of the Lawyers Co-operative Publishing Co. at Rochester. I find him and his wife (often in census records referred to as 'Sadie') as passengers returning from Bermuda aboard the 'Monarch of Bermuda', arriving at New York on Feb. 10, 1939 (which was apparently a few months before his death). He was a prominent resident of Rochester NY. There must be something about him in the Rochester newspapers. You might also be able to find his burial by contacting Monroe Co. New York.

Her husband, who according to the cemetery book I have died in 1904, is buried at Stoney Point Cemetery, Kosciusko Co. Indiana, under the name 'G.W. Stackouse'. His memorial is #90215439

RE: Sarah Catherine (Allomong) Estrich
You are welcome! If you are interested, they have two daughters with grave stones buried with them; Clara Estrich (1883-1981) and Ella C. Stackhouse (1879-1958). I also have their photos.

RE: Emmanuel Bittle
You are welcome. Honestly, adding the headstone picture was an afterthought. I had taken my two young girls there to explore and appreciate history. My father had taken me to this site over 20 years ago and I was always fascinated by it. It is sad it has been forgotten. When I went there all those years ago, there were quite a few headstones and markers. Yesterday, I was sad to see there are very few left. My guess is people have removed them or destroyed them over the years. I did not see any other Bittles. Of the few remaining headstones, several can not be read anymore.

There are no private property signs. The cemetery is located on top of a very steep hill on the southwest corner of Old Atherton Road and where the train tracks by the sewage treatment plant cross the road.

James W. Pelly
Found a grave out in a field today in Pellyton. Reads as follows: James W. Pelly Son of H & E Pelly. June 29, 1817. Nov 20, 1865. (I think it's James Madison Pelley, but I'm not sure.) Also, many slave stones. Not finding enough luck on ancestry.com, please advise. Thanks.

RE: Blanche (Roseberry) Allomong
Yes, I have one for Wm Carleton & Blanche as well as one for Wm & Frankie. Will try to get them up soon. I have to scan them as I took these back in 2001 or so. I can also tell you parents so that you can link Blanche up. Makes it nicer/easier to find photos.
Are you a descendant of Rachel or Margaret? Would love to compare/trade some info.
