Bio and Links
Bio Photo As an avid outdoorsman and conservationist, I enjoy deer hunting most of all. Until my retirement, it got me away from the stressful demands of an understaffed but very active radio communications center of emergency and non emergency calls, surveillance cameras, alarm systems, police radios, computers and sometimes unreasonable grumpy people.

In my spare time, I'm a master taxidermist that specializes in whitetail deer and freshwater fish mounts. I also work with Buckmasters and Buckmasters Whitetail Trophy Records as a Regional Director and Master Scorer (Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin). I've had the pleasure of measuring many world record whitetail deer antlers for the record books, RACK, and Buckmasters magazines. I'm writing a book on "Whitetail Trophies of Missouri" which I hope to publish sometime in the near future.

I became interested in genealogy a few short years ago through an uncle. Since then, I've discovered many interesting facts about our family members. Researching family history has become an enjoyable pastime. I'm interested in learning more about the tribes of McCONNELL, ALESHIRE, DICKERSON, VAUGHN, BARROW, BENNETT, CAMPBELL, FEEZELL, WRIGHT, WINKLE, MALLORY, TEFERTILLER, APPERSON and HEARST. To date, I've logged over 8,800 names to my family tree and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

NOTE: A lot of effort, time in research, and sometimes travel expenses and other incurring fees have gone into this project to help ensure the accuracy of each entry. Therefore, it is our policy NOT to transfer ownership of any memorial unless it is to a responsible immediate family member.

If you would like to contribute information to someone's biography, or if you see a memorial here that needs correction, please let me know and I'll take care of the error immediately. Have an AWESOME day!

Mr. McConnell, these are my parents. Would you consider transferring the maintenance of the two sites to me?

Thank you very much for the time and effort you took to add them to Find a Grave.

Floyd Rutledge
There is a duplication memorial that has him buried in Antioch Cemetery, Greene Co., which is where is father and mother are buried. It might be worth checking out. Maybe Greenlawn could confirm or dispute his interment in their cemetery. FYI. 47336229.

RE: Robert Oral Killingsworth
Thank you for providing further information about the photo for Oral Killingsworth! I've made updates to the picture you were referring to of Oral when he served as Dade County Sheriff, including a credit to the photographer who captured the day.
