I'm never very good at these things, but here goes. To start off, I'm a Jill of all trades and master of none. I love, love, love taking photographs, especially statuary in cemeteries. It's this love combined with searching out the resting places of my ancestors that led me to this site. My husband and I reside in Linn County, Missouri, and we go cemetery hopping here a lot. I've started to carry a list along with my camera when we go on these jaunts so hopefully I can get those local requests filled. I just LOVE helping other people out. Thanks for visiting and have a great day!|

|CatMoves||RE: Albert and Elizabeth Lambert and Rachel Buswell|
I must apologize for having been so lax in replying to your generous posting of the photo of Albert and Elizabeth. Turns out I have a B&W snapshot of that very picture. I have no idea where my Late Aunt got it. Perhaps she met up with a relative of yours so many years ago? I know it must be at least 30.
On the back of the snapshot it reads that Albert was one-forth Deleware Indian. From his features I've always had the impresssion that he must've been more than just a quarter Deleware. And Elizabeth looks Native American to me as well. Do you know anything at all about them? Because I know nothing else.
Let's see....if you're their gggg-granddaughter and I'm their gg-grandaughter then that's makes us what-cousins how many times removed? I've never been any good at this kind of thing. And who are you descended from? The only children I know of are Rachel and Martha. Did they have any others?
Once again my thanks for all your help in this. It's so lovely to see these photos; and to discover another cousin is a bonus!

|D DeWitt||why Conger?|
This may seem weird but I can not figure out why I am interested in Harve Conger!
I have been really busy with school and also several ancestry families at the same time. Then I found a reference to the Congers on my desktop but for the life of me I can not figure why!
I am doing to many things.
Since they lived in Chariton Co, MO I am guessing I came across him or his wife via my research on my mother's side of the family so maybe if I list some last names, they will be cross link to someone in your data?
Richardson, Harman, Wooldridge, Yocum, white, penrod, hepworth,
Hill, Ireland, McSparren, Minks,
On another topic.
I have seen Janes or Jaynes for the spelling of Harvey Conger's wife Almira? Any thoughts?

Oh my goodness! Thank-you, thank-you SO MUCH for the photos of their grave markers! I honestly never thought I'd ever get to see them! I live in the Pacific Northwest and the odds of me getting out there are practically non-existant.
The cemetery looks far nicer than I thought it would. From the way my aunt talked about it when she'd gone there (about 40 years ago) I had the impression that it was overgrown and practically abandoned. It was so very kind of you to do this and I am deeply grateful.
I understand that oher relations are also buried there, but I haven't been able to find anything about them.
Once again my eternal thanks for you help in this matter.

Thank you so much for the photo. It's a shame the stone is spotted, for lack of a better word. Was her husband guy buried beside her? thanks, M
