Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am currently working on my family tree and my husband's family tree. I apologize in advance to those that I send many SAC's. Sometimes it seems like I'm connected to everyone in a cemetery. I like to get as much information as I can on their memorials, but it is very important to me personally to add maiden names and links. Thank you to everyone who has added information and thank you to those who will in the future.

If you're planning to go to Mount Hope and aren't sure where your family is buried, email me ahead of time and I can send you more information, along with maps of the cemetery. Mount Hope covers a large area and it can be difficult to find a specific burial without a map.

I've completed taking pictures of Mount Hope Cemetery in Webb City, Mo, with the exception of stones added since June 2010, and they are all online. If there wasn't a stone, I took a picture of the space. The pictures that say "space unknown" means I have the block and lot number, but not the space number so I just took a picture of the lot or of an unmarked space in the lot.

I realize that some of my pictures are not all that great, so if you'd like me to try to get a better photo, let me know. If I've made any mistakes or you'd like more information added, just let me know.

Many of the headstone pictures that I've placed on my family's memorials were actually taken by my parents. I have my Mom's permission to use hers and since my Dad's passing, his pictures are now mine. I've created virtual cemeteries for family.

It is not my intention to create duplicate memorials and I try not to but sometimes it happens. Please let me know if I have created a duplicate and I'll remove mine. And I'd appreciate it if you don't create duplicates of ones already on. I am more than happy to transfer management of the memorials I have created unless they are my family. Just click on edit on the memorial and ask for a transfer and include your relationship.

I don't mind sharing the photos I've taken for personal use but I would like to request that others do not take credit for any photos I've taken.

RE: Everett Jones family
A little history for you: My Mother is Rosa Helen Jones Schepers daughter of Rose Woods Jones and Everett Jones. My Mother is still living and is 92 this last 8-21.

siblings: Lynda Lee Schepers Walker, born 7-11-1942, was killed in St. Louis 2-7-1970
Stanley Joseph Schepers, born 9-16-1944, died 11-24-2011 of cancer.
Beverly Ann Buckley, born 6-3-1946
(Me) Elaine Alberta Thompson born 9-1-1947.
Mary Esther Prenger, born 11-26-1952

I have two sons Matthew Paul Petree, age 44, Luke Andrew Petree, age 39.

I remember Aunt Viola and Uncle Robert visiting us up to the age of 5. after that I do not remember seeing them any more and assume they passed away. I think (not sure) their last name was Edwards.

You said your husband and I are related, how so?

Everett Jones family
My grandfather was Everett Jones, son of Elihu Earl Jones. I appreciate the information garnered from your web page. Do you know of a couple, Robert and Viola Jones? I remember them from my childhood but can find no trace of them.

thanks,
Elaine Thompson

Kelly,
Just to update this record, Inez had another sister, her name was Katie Ellen Athay Wallis. Katie was my maternal grandmother which makes Inez my great-aunt. There were also numerous half-brothers and half-sisters from the Athay side of the family.

Thanks!
No, you could never offend me. You do great things for everyone in that region. I was just curious about the relative who knew about that relative. I don't mind at all the you transfer any Hardy to me since I pretty much know who all of them are. That one was my 3x great aunt. I just meant I wasn't asking for a transfer since some people don't like to do them. Thank you!!!

RE: Your post on Chas. Leo Hardy?
Kelly,

Read my post. I'm not asking for a transfer. I was just trying to figure out who sent you that info because they would be a cousin of mine.

Thanks!!

RE: Joseph Sewell
Ok, Kelly, I certainly Understand.

In that case, then I would ask that you please establish links to some of his descendent memorials. I will provide the information.

Thanks

Your post on Chas. Leo Hardy?
Kelly,

Are you the one who wrote this on Charles Leo Hardy's grave? He is my grandmother's brother. (I agree, his middle name was Leo.) If you wrote it, we're cousins. :0) If not, you started the profile and I wonder who wrote it. Do you know?

Birth: Nov. 10, 1899, USA
Death: May 5, 1948
Park Valley
Box Elder County
Utah, USA [Edit Dates]

The grave marker erroneously says his middle name was Lee. He either changed it himself because he didn't like Leo, or an error was made on the grave marker. The birth and death dates are correct for Charles Leo Hardy and I'm POSITIVE his middle name was Leo; he was my grandmother's brother and she told me his full name many times in a family oral history I recorded. He died in Utah and his body was shipped home (according to his obit) so he could be buried at Mount Hope with his family.

Charles Leo's wife's name was Herna (according to his obituary), last name unknown.

He served in WWI in the Missouri S2C USNRF.
