Bio Photo Update January 2015:

After being a member for several years, the following are my own personal "guidelines":

Anyone may copy any photos I have posted for personal use - no credit required. It does my heart good to see them included in someone's family tree since the main reason I try to do my part in this is to help people who have passed on be remembered.

I will usually transfer memorials for those outside my own family lines, even to those who are not within the Findagrave four generation policy, including people who may have been just friends. However, please be sure that you intend to actually add something to enhance the memorials. It's frustrating to transfer an entire family to someone, only to later discover that nothing has been done with them. I check for Edits almost daily and usually accept them quickly.

I am guilty of adding duplicates, but none are intentional. Most of my memorials come from photographing an entire cemetery, and though I try to search for each one before adding it, sometimes duplicates happen. There is no need to be rude, just a friendly notification like This is a duplicate" will be enough to have me delete mine. I am also guilty of typo's, for which I apologize. I regret not being more careful.

When I photograph a cemetery, I try to take both a distance shot and a closeup shot. I frequently add the distance shots to memorials that already have a closeup. This is not meant to imply that the first photo is not good enough. My only intent is to hopefully help future visitors to the cemetery be able to locate a grave they wish to visit. If any photos I post offend anyone, I will gladly remove them at the creator's request.

I have started virtual cemeteries for military veterans buried in Boone, Chariton, Howard, Macon, and Randolph counties. These are far from complete, so if you know of a veteran in those counties, please let me know if I don't already have them.

For those contributors who take it upon themselves to be the Findagrave police, adding a please and thank you would go a long way.

Thanks to those who help make Findagrave such a pleasant, fulfilling labor of love! Wishing you all a blessed 2015...

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!

Charles Hugh Woodson
I just read the wonderful article you e-mailed to me regarding Mr. Woodson.I have added it to his memorial. I found a lot of info for Charles on Fold3
but have never seen this article. You made my day, THANK YOU.

Charles is the 2nd husband of Julia Elizabeth Salisbury and first marriage was to Thomas Conway Doxey who also fought in the Civil War Missouri Malita. He died young but I have no idea how or where he died or is buried. I have a feeling he was killed in the war. In your searching in Chariton
County keep your eyes open for him.

Lucinda Rogers Brock
This tombstone says Lucinda was the wife of E. H. Brock. However, something is very strange because Lucinda Rogers Brock married Henry D. Brock in 1861 according to the Lincoln Co. KY marriage records.

Lucinda's sister, Letitia Rogers married E. H. Brock in 1864 after the death of his FIRST wife. On the 1860 MO census her name is ELIZABETH. H. D. Brock was their surety. E. H. Brock was a resident of Macon Co. MO. They married at Letitia's mother's house in Lincoln Co. KY. Her mother was Mary "Polly" Rogers.

Lucinda Rogers Brock outlived her FIRST husband, Henry D. Brock, and married second Ballard Smith. Lucinda Rogers Brock Smith died in 1925 in Peoria, IL.

RE: Bradley Cem Howard Co. MO
Thank you and please give our thanks to your extended Find A Grave family for checking out the Bradley Cemetery. We would have never known if we would have pressed the land owner that we would not have found the graves we were looking for.
I will pass this along to my wife, who's family we were looking for.
Our deepest appreciation,
Nell and Sterling Parker

RE: Josephine green Holt memorial.
Thank you for your reply. The area photo does not show josephine and Clarence's stone but other Holts who are not relayed to them. I believe it would cause confusion ...

Josephine green Holt memorial.
Would you please remove the area photograph? The Holts shown in that photo are of no relation to Josephine and Clarence Holt (who was my mother's cousin). Thank you.

Bradley Cemetery
HI, my wife and I made a trip from Texas to Howard Co., MO severial years ago. She had information that her ancestor was buried in the Bradley Cemetery. We went to the farm that the cemetery is located on and met the land owner. He pointed down the durt road to where it was but it had been raining that day and he suggested that we not try to get up there.
The ancestor is Ellen Willis Smith and I am wondering if someone would make the trip and photograph that cemetery, I believe that there are only about twenty to thirty graves there.

Oh no! I hope your peacock made it. Our neighbors while we were growing up had a pair named Bonnie and Clyde!
