Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, family history has been very important to me all my life. I wrote my first life history when I was 12!

When I was a kid, our church had a project of canvassing cemeteries. It would be a Sunday afternoon project, one reading off the information and the other writing it and reading it back. Mom knew some of the old hidden away graveyards, and we went to them. After I married, I took her with me again, and, in the days before MapQuest, I drew maps to the graveyards!

My father and mother was working on genealogy in 1940s and 1950s. Mom would drive the old blue truck around Perry, Madison and St. Francois Counties in Missouri. She loved learning about family and would say that she felt like she "knew" these people. Her initial notes were from the 1930s. She also filled seven notebooks with written histories of the branches of the family as she remembered them.

Now that is about her, but it is the heritage she left to me. I typed the stories and continued with research which she and Daddy started. During my work, I have tried "to make a correct record." I hope to succeed in that in some degree by documentation of information I find. Please let me know where you find that I'm wrong. Thanks.

I love and appreciate what the computer has added to this search and documentation work called genealogy!

Thanks for that. Hope you are staying safe and warm! Here, in Spokane, which normally we have a fair amount of snow, we hardly have any! Sue

Jennie,
I added some pictures for the Ferguson's in Cross Road Cemetery today. I noticed that my pictures caused Lola Chestine Hill-Ferguson's to go to a second page. If you will go and change her personal picture to (Photo) instead of (Grave)it will keep it up front. ~ Scott

Memory Park Cemetery corrections
Most of the corrections and additions have been made. will finish them soon. wanted you to know, if you don't live in the area, that Memory Park Cemetery is in Harrison County but Longview is in BOTH Harrison COunty and Gregg County Texas. Most of the residences for Longview are in Gregg County.
The part in Harrison county is MOSTLY commercial and the cemetery. So added death places as GREGG county on most of the memorials.

Hi, Jennie
You have posted a photograph of Elizabeth Lane Hill on her Find A Grave memorial #5759621 (Benning Cemetery, Clark County, Missour). I would like to ask your permission to use the photograph in my Lane family tree. Elizabeth is my 2nd cousin 4 times removed.
Thanks,
Carolyn

Aaron Rudolph Hill
Nice to see you care so much. I am part of a group who has taken over caring for SunnySide Cemetery since 2009 where Aaron Rudolph Hill is buried. We are presently restoring the grounds. Would you know of any history of the cemetery or any of the other people buried there.
