Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired Navy Submariner, retired in 1989. What I would consider to be just "a good ol' boy" from rural Missouri! My main interest in this is giving back for all the information I've been able to get. My family surnames being investigated is: Jackson, Smith, Bowden, Chapman, Rolstad and many others too numerous to list. I cover Miller, Morgan counties, but will branch out into adjoining counties. I will give it my best try if asked and I accept. It is a shame how some of these headstones are deteriorating and no record is being made to ensure they don't die in obscurity! If you are doing this, I challange everyone to get to every cemetery you can reach and take a photo of every headstone in it. We must not forget!

Memorial 81748185
You may have uncovered a marker for which I have been searching many years. It might be that I have been looking in the wrong cemetery. Maria Ella Penrose Edmundson is my Great Grandmother. You upgraded her site with a marker photo. Is the cemetery shown on the old Masonic/Odd Fellows Cemetery located in Mt Pleasant right outside Eldon, MO?

Glenn is at Eldon Cemetery. I also sent a suggestion adding links to his family for both Sr. and Jr. Did you receive it? It might be on your own bio under the edit tab. Please let me know if you don't receive updates. I did several in Eldon cemetery.

Shane Headstone in Eldon Cem.
Wow... you just can't imagine my total surprise at finding a picture of the headstone for Clark Brown Shane and Nettie Ritz Shane. I am so grateful, John... you just don't know!! They both lived at the Poor Farm and I naturally assumed there would never be a headstone for them. Did I tell you how grateful I am?? Thank you a million times over for your very thoughtful act. Irene Smith-Rice, Norfolk, VA.

Thank you very much for putting the picture
of my Uncle's Headstone on his memorial. Would
It be possible to put the same picture on his
wife. Nellie cooper # 98564873. I could print
It off and put It on myself but I don't think
I'm supposed to do that. Thanks again. Shirley

William Christie Howser, Eldon Cemetery
The death date on the web site gives the wrong death September, 1982. The actual tombstone date is the CORRECT one: July 7, 1982
