I had a dream the other night a delivery truck pulled up to the house and was unloading some huge boxes and crates, four in all. I am watching as they are being loaded into the house and then I saw PARR Cemetery stamped on the side of one of the crates. My friend John Jackson was just about to open it and I screamed "Don't open it"... and I woke up!|
I was born in Ottumwa, Iowa raised in Munterville, Iowa then moving to Blakesburg, Iowa and on to Muscatine, Iowa. Find a Grave has helped me bring my family who lived before me together. My Great Aunt Dr. Stella Pearson, D.O. (Aunt Teddy) enjoyed going to the cemetery to clean up, decorate, and tell me the stories about each family member we visited. I have found so many of my family because of our early trips to the cemetery. I just wished I had taken notes when she was telling the stories of family history. I put in a request for a picture of my father's grave over three and a half years ago and no one ever bothered to take a photo for me. Four hundred miles later I had his picture and many more. Today my passion is to fill as many photo requests as I possibly can for those who need that last family photograph. I am getting good at finding a grave and the walks are wonderful!
I have entered several cemetery records from online sources on snow or rain days so if I have any of your family no matter the relationship I will transfer just ask me and I will make it happen. Please provide your contributor number.
If you want multiple monuments photographed, please take the time to create a memorial for each person rather than attach a message to one request asking for multiple photos.

Glad I could help. It's so good to get out and about after a long winter.
Greatly appreciate the photos of the headstones for the Arnould family.
Thank you for your help!
I do have a question if you don't mind. How do I find a user on this website with their ID number? Your name and ID number are listed as, Christine Masterson (#47348844). If I had just the ID number, is there a way to look up a person? Thanks for your help.

|Dolores J. Rush||Hello!|
A new-to-me cousin, Marv Allen #46619263, has become the new coordinator of the Montgomery County, KY Gen Web site. Although there are some primary documents there, he's looking for more. Have any to share?
|Dolores J. Rush||Masterson & Turley Research|
Have you read these books for your research on James Turley & the Mastersons?
I ordered these books through World Cat:
1. History of Christian County, Illinois with Illustrations Descriptive of Its Scenery and Biographical Sketches of Some of Its Prominent Men and Pioneers: 1763-1880. By Calvin Goudy. Edwardsville, IL; Brink, McDonough & Co.; 1880. P. 253, 254. Repository: Illinois State Library, 300 S. Second Street, Springfield, MO
2. History of Christian County, IL. Edited by Henry L. Fowkes, Munsell Publishing, Chicago, IL, 1918. P. 776. Repository: Midwest Genealogy Center, Mid-Continent Library, 3440 S. Lee's Summit Road, Independence, MO
3. "Pleasant View Township". History of Macon County, Illinois: 1763-1880. Brink, McDonough & Co., Philadelphia, reprinted 1972. Pp. 207-208. Repository: Arizona State Library, Phoenix, AZ
4. A Masterson sued the Fletcher (my 4th great-grandfather's) estate. The information was retrieved from Daniel Stowell's website: The Law Practice & Papers of Abraham Lincoln.org
5. There is a newspaper article published in the Summer of 1856 in which Martin White has written a letter to a Charles Hurst of Springfield, IL about the Pottawatomie Massacre in the Kansas territories. He mentions J. M. Masterson in it. One of the newspaper databases ought to have it. I don't remember which one I found it on -- ProQuest, Newspaperarchive, Gale group, or the Library of Congress.
6. I also received some church minutes from a Lake Fork Primitive Baptist church from the Logan County Historical Society in Lincoln, IL.
The contributor I mentioned before is researching the Masterson & Northcutt families also. She is MAS #47453497.
By the way, have you traced Nancy Margaret White's family back?
