Bio and Links
Bio Photo My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from an inactive member.

Please do NOT post scanned obituaries and news articles as photos to my memorials as they are not allowed per Findagrave rules. I will ask that they be removed if I find them. Send me the typed information (including source) via the edit tab and I will add it in the bio field where the information belongs.

St. Marys Catholic Cemetery
I was recently in the Springfield area and visited the St. Marys Catholic Cemetery west of Berlin. Next to the gravestone for Lucida K. Goins is a very new marker with her parents names. Unfortunately, there are no dates recorded on the marker. The marker is also not being found by FindaGrave. Can you give me any information on the burials for Joseph and Louisea Custer?

Thanks in advance,
Doris Goins

Photo request for George W. Smith # 108375297
Thank you for letting me know about the incorrect plot information for George W. Smith Memorial # 108375297 in Oak Ridge Cemetery; I have contacted the Cemetery and received the corrected information this morning. I added that info to George's memorial and am still interested in having a photo taken for his memorial.

RE: Jerry A. Thomas #57878282
Jerry, thank you very much for the correction. We were traveling through Springfield and I just wanted to sample the cemetery. I just took less than 100 pictures. It is very probable that I will not be able to return being over 400 miles from there. I am in Northeastern Kansas and if you ever have any need that I might be able to fulfill please let me know. Again, thanks for the correction and all you do. I see you have added many more records than I could possibly do. I am now 84 years old, but still quite active. Best wishes.

RE: Oops....Elizabeth Condell
BjJ, How wonderful that you were able to get this photo of her headstone before it was lost to the earth forever! Thank you so much! This is great. Love these really old ones and appreciate them still being there long enough to get a photo. WOW
