"Do not regret Growing Old. It is a Privilege denied to Many."|
I grew up in central Missouri where my ancestors settled, most from KY; I often return and photograph country cemeteries and haunt the library reference departments. Looking for gravestones for my Wells, Hazlewood/Hazelwood, Lane/Lain, Thoroughman/Thurman, Bellamy/Bellomy, Stayton, Pullen/Pullin/Pulliam, Gregg/Gragg, Rigg, Page families; others include Dunning, Gant, Payne, Settles/Suttle(s), Sudduth, Stoneking, Stewart, Shelten, Stoll.
A goal is to ensure there are memorials for all known burials in the "country" cemeteries in the Bates/Cass/Henry counties where my ancestors lived and are interred, and am photo indexing as many as I can - some are in woeful condition. Too many are now in cow pastures, vandalized or stones used in barn foundations. May those with so little respect for our ancestors be haunted by their ghosts.
Corrections, updates and link requests are welcomed so "our" memorials are informative and accurate -- please send maiden names if you know them. Every person has a story - hopefully memorial managers who prefer not to update or correct their memorials will transfer them to the requesting family member/friend to maintain and add the story -- or there will be a software update that allows third parties to contribute to memorials. Thanks to all the administrators who make the site available and user-friendly, and to the many great volunteers who make "finding Grandma" possible. Special thanks to photo volunteers who spend hours searching for lost grave markers, sometimes in overgrown, tick and snake infested, unkept, unmarked cemeteries.
You are welcome to use information or grave marker photos I have entered. If you do a copy/paste of a memorial with a bio, please copy the entire memorial which includes my name, date entered and the memorial number at the very bottom -- a LOT of time and research has gone into many of these memorials. Please do not copy/post my "people" photographs on sponsored pages.
Please make your edit/transfer requests from the "edit" link of the memorial and not from the profile page which I don't view often. I generally don't transfer memorials with researched bios, nor do I transfer to requesters who are rude/demanding, have no profile or who are collectors -- but I'll always update and link memorials within a day or two if not traveling.
Note - Had nerve injury in left arm/hand, 2010 surgery; smashed left hand in door 2011, broke two fingers; broke left wrist in 2012 - typos during each recovery process - please call them to my attention. 2013 - nerve damage prevents holding a camera, so my enjoyable hobby of photo-indexing cemeteries is over. Am using that time to enhance and link memorials.
When entering information from census records I use the spelling as it appears, even knowing it is wrong -- those aren't typos.
Happy graving - and remember to thank our Veterans and Active Service men and women.

|april smith||RE: Banta|
you don't have to submit a request for the one I already took. Now that there is a page to upload it to, I will get it up in the next few days.

When I went out to photograph Margaret Banta, I took photo's of more Banta headstones around hers. I have added thier photo's to thier pages, except for one. Henry Banta Peel 1904-1925.
Would you be able to transfer Henry Marvin to me? He is my great-grandfather. Thank you.

I just use the Microsoft Paint (in Windows Accessories). I add text (click on the text button)and use the rectangle boxes option when I need to add a box. (Hope that helps?) :)
