Bio Photo Update Feb 2014:
I've been told that people have hesitated to contact me since my step-son's death in September. Please feel free to do so, as I am still working on Findagrave almost daily. It has been a saving grace, and I very much appreciate the kindness and caring of the Findagrave community.

Update October 2013:
Please visit my virtual cemetery for "Jake the Great", created for my step-son lost to a series of circumstances resulting in him taking his own life on September 10, 2013. Jacob's bio contains a letter written by his father, and it is our hope that it may help prevent this from happening to another family. Please pass it on to whoever you think may benefit from it. Thanks, and God Bless.

Since 2007, I have been dedicated to locating, listing and photographing all the Randolph County, Missouri cemeteries I am able to get to. I have completed listings, with photos of each stone, of about 155 cemeteries so far, mainly to provide the county historical societies with updated listings and accurate locations. I am just starting to put these on findagrave, and in the interest of saving time, have only entered the name and years for now. I have more info for most of these memorials, which I hope to add and link as time allows. It is my thinking that having just the names and dates posted may help someone find their relatives. I am very willing to transfer memorials to relatives, even distant ones....just ask and let me know how you are related. I will be glad to fulfill photo requests as I am able to, so if you are looking for someone in a particular cemetery, please feel free to contact me.

Please use the Edit/Suggestion tab to send info or to request transfers. Thanks!

RE: Picture of monument for Richard C. Carson
Thank you so much Nancy for the information you sent to me regarding the Brunswick City Cemetery contact and also the address and phone number of Brunswick City Hall. Appreciate this so much. Yes, Rain and cooler temps will certainly be most welcome.

RE: Burns in Roanoke
Hi Nancy, no problems and glad to get them. Thanks! There are a few more I will eventually get too.
If you come across any more plain unwanted grave stones that are big enough to engrave please let me know. I will pick them up when I can. I am planning on using a guy in Moberly to engrave them for me. Several in the Lee/Harvey where too broken up to use. Sharon helped me with a couple as you know. Still need more as you can imagine.
Wish I had more time and money to work on things. If my brother ever hooks me up with the stock market I may not have to work for other people again. It would be nice. So many cemetery`s and so little time.
Yes, Neil took me to Old Fort again and another one north of Huntsville. Old Fort is looking the best I have ever seen it. Big, big job but well worth the time and effort. I love the WBTS history about a company of the Missouri State Guard forming there. Great stuff. Neil is one of my hero`s in case you cannot tell. My only regret is I cannot be his right hand man.
I will be coming to Missouri a couple times a year and we will get together sometime. It looks like the third week in April will be my regular trip. My great Aunt Mary Lou`s birthday in Huntsville will get all of us together for at least another decade I hope.
Keep up all your good work. You will be hearing from me. Sincerely, Eli

RE: Picture of monument for Richard C. Carson
I see the death date is incorrect on this memorial according to the date of death on the monument. When one uses the death date and the years, months and days which was the age at date of death, there is also a much different date of birth. I have sent an edit request to get this changed. I almost removed this request for a photo and now am so glad I did not as you were able to get this pic. Also one picture shows the round monument is near a small tree and some bushes and looks like the monument is out of the cradle it is supposed to rest on. Can you give me the address of this cemetery in Brunswick? Thanks! Janice

Picture of monument for Richard C. Carson
Nancy, thank you so very much for getting this picture. I was beginning to think the monument was possibly not legible. You endured this awful heat to get this photo and we are so thankful. Your helping others on Find A Grave is what makes the site what it is. Janice
