Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in rural Sullivan County and still consider "there" to be my real home. I hope to do as much research and photography there as time allows.
My roots include the ancestors of George Dewey Morris and Emma Jane Ward Morris. I'm also interested in the ancestors of Kenneth and Helen Pipes Cochran.
I enjoy following up on photo requests and would love to hear from fellow researchers. I'm relatively new at this so am learning how to obtain information.

Fredrick Taylor

You have Fredrick (1881-1885) listed as the son of Meakin and Sarah Taylor. I believe that he is actually their grandson. His parents are likely Samuel James Taylor (1828-1905) and Harriet Earls Whilhite (1831-1879) or possibly Samuel James Taylor and Martha E Sterling (1860-). My issue is none of their dates seem to work either. Samuel did not marry Martha until November of 1881 but Fredrick appears to have been born in June. I am still working on this family and it is possible my dates are incorrect but I am pretty certain Sarah (1799-1846) did not give birth to him.

The spelling of Sutherland family graves should read Southerland. Thank you for work. I will try to add photos later.

Please correct the spelling of his daughter's name. It is Launa. She is my Gt-Grandmother. Thank you for your time.

Actual Name for C. H. Hart
According to his MO death certificate, this burial was for Gable H. Hart. He was born 1 Nov 1824 in Illinois and died 1 Dec 1915 in Linneus, with burial at Cora. The carving on the tombstone looks like a C. but I think it is really a G.

May and Linvingston Families in Sullivan County, MO
I am doing some research for a friend of mine who is related, distantly, to the lady listed at this memorial

I am a bit confused about some of her descendents. Especially Russell Junior Livingston. Can you chat with me about this family? I am wondering who were Russell's birth parents? and who are James Henry and Claudia May and how do they fit into Eliza M. and Jacob May's family? :)


PS feel free to email me off Find a Grave. My email is on my member page.

RE: Edna Morris
Thank you so much for the transfer, I have been working on my husband's family tree. I just appreciate that you and he both have added so many of the Morris' and have actually linked them to their other family members. The links have actually helped me out alot with his tree.

Thanks again
