Additional information and corrections are always welcome.|
Note: Information about Jacob and Mary Stauffer Varnes and some of their descendants has been taken from the following family history:
THE GENEALOGY OF THE JACOB LEIGHTY FAMILY OF FAYETTE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA by Floyd H. Leighty, Sr., Jan. 1980.
Special thanks to Julie Oliver for recording tombstone information at Bethel Christian Church, which has been used in some of the memorials.
The question of initials in proper names has recently come up. I am trying to follow the FAG guidelines of using a period after a middle initial: "Concerning punctuation in proper names, always use normal English rules, such as always use a period after a Middle Initial."

I appreciate you sending the links to James Shuffett. I try to list all the ones I find at the poor farm and county burials but seldom seem to get much response. They sort of become lost to the times because most, by the time their lives ended, had no family left. I keep thinking someday someone will want to know who they were.

|Pam Witherow||RE: Lingo Town Cemetery burials|
A very minor oops--no need to apologize for that--I have "oopsed" a bunch myself!!! :-) Take care!!
|Pam Witherow||RE: Map of Lingo Twp., Macon Co., MO Cemeteries|
Thank you for the suggestion of moving people to another cemetery. I appreciate your telling me and I have moved the first four, but Bridget Welch was not mine. I do know all about the maps, etc., just have not had time to go back over all and double check, that is why I am grateful when someone lets me know where I made the oops'.
Again, thank you and best regards,

Thankyou so much for the cemetery correction for John Denny. He was my grandmother's first cousin. Do you have a full listing for the Lingo Town cemetery? John had two sisters besides Josephin- Tresa Irene and Petronella. I will go back through my grandmothers writings and see if I can find married names for them.

Thank you for the burial location for Alta and for sending the links for her parents!! :-)

Thank you for telling me about the burial location, I know death certificates are not always right, and occasionally I have found that Elizabeth's records are not so accurate either. It does make better sense though that one would be buried with their spouse--unless divorced, etc. No, I have not been to either of those cemeteries yet.

You're very welcome! I'm so glad I found Edward.

Hello, I am a descendant of the Schwenks and saw Trilma Irene's husband's memorial.
Yes, her name was Trilma (she also had a sister named Zelta!).
I have created a memorial for Trilma.
|Nancy Kiser||RE: John Griffin|
You are welcome. I will send you links to his parents' memorials, William Green and Anna Griffin. I have a picture of them that I posted to their memorials. They were my 3X great grandparents.

When we are busy or embroiled in a project, we sometimes "see" things as we want to see them. :) No problem! Glad it got figured out! Regards, BjJ
