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!

Jen - Jen The sad thing with the little guys headstone is it is only a temp. marker waiting for a headstone. It is not in good shape but it is a 100 years old. Have a great day, Jen

Wallace Twitchell Baby
Hi, The reason I set up the memorial with the last name as Twitchell is if anyone was looking for the last name of Twitchell the memorial would pull up. If I post it under Baby, that would be the last name. In the city recorder it is under Wallace Twitchell. Thanks for your interest, Jen

Thank you Jennie. I added the letter as you suggested for Joseph Graham, along with an attribution (but I can take that off if you don't want it).

RE: LANE CEMETERY
Feel free to use any of my pics. The only restriction I would add is that they are not sold and I can't even imagine any circumstances like that. :)

Happy Graving!

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
