Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started out just responding to photo requests for Mound Grove Cemetery in Independence, Missouri. The cemetery was established by the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints in 1904.

I found myself walking up and down the same rows over and over hunting names. I then decided I would take a certain section, record the names, come home and check to see if they were listed. If not, I would go back and get a picture.

Then I found out that Jackson County Genealogical Society published a book in 1997, with the cemetery assisting with information, which I could purchase.

So now I am taking a section at a time and in some cases re-doing my photos.

I am happy to transfer memorials to family; just let me know. Plus, my photos are for public use should you wish to copy them.

May I use your photo of the grave of Frances Josephine Trowbridge on

I forgot to tell you that I have seen your name on Find A Grave for many years. Your name appears on memorials for many of my relatives.

I admire your work. Bless you for all you do.

RE: Re: Edward B McLees
Hello. The 1880 U.S. Census at shows Alexander and Marian B GLOVER McLees and their children.

Thresa B GLOVER and her sister, Adda, are living in the household as servants.

After Marian died, Alexander married Thresa.

Marian is the mother of all of Alexander's children. I have not found a clue as to the relationship of Marian and Thresa, but they have the same maiden name.

This was confusing to me, too. I spent many hours figuring it out. I have put all sources I found at

I have requested a link to Marian's memorial 66387929 to be added to Alexander's memorial. Perhaps after that, things will be less confusing.

Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving

RE: Cassius M. Wooten
I am sorry but Im about 30 miles from that old
cemetery. The stone is probably unreadable.
I would put in a request for another picture and hopefully someone closer can take a better picture

Anna M Andersen Christensen
Mrs. Christensen had a daughter called Frona who married John L. Casmaer. I believe this is the correct last name of the person listed as informant for the Christensen information and may have been transposed incorrectly years ago. Aunt Frona had no children of her own and was quite fond of my grandmother and my father.

Photo Request for Baby Henry
Thanks for the attempt. Through your efforts we were able to discover that there is no marker for him, and as a result have ordered one.
