Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 43 years old and have lived most of my life around the Appleton City Mo area and am currently living about 8 miles west of A.C.. I have three children (all teens, ugg) and married my high school sweetheart. I got started in family history while in high school but didn't get very far with it. I have recently picked up my family history again through and that's how I found out about Find A Grave. At first glance thought Find A Grave might be a gimmick but soon realized that there is a lot of neat things about it. Shortly there after I signed up as volunteer photographer. While I claim no real photography skills, I use my iphone and computer and upload the photo's.

I have a few pages that I have made a copy of from Find A Grave of some family members, and use this to illustrate to people that don't know or don't understand about Find A Grave or what I am up to. Almost all have commented that that is neat and didn't realize that this information is available online.

My main territory for cemetery photo's is eastern Bates county, northwestern St. Clair county and southwestern Henry county MO. Feel free to use my photo's (no commercial use please).

So looking forward to the day I slip out of this world and catch up with my eternal family. God bless, and happy family hunting!

A M VanWinkle
Larry, I don't know if it was you or someone else, but I've been trying to figure out who A M VanWinkle was now for several years! I periodically go back and review those items I'm unable to resolve and I was floored that someone had figured out it was a female and her name was Amanda Melvina Winders-VanWinkle.

As a result, I've submitted a change to link Amanda with her husband, Eldridge Vanwinkle, who died in 1913 in Hemet, CA. I almost feel as though I've finally been able to reunite this family. If you played a part in this, thank you very much!

Daniel W. Spangler Mem #7970701
Hi, I'm looking to connect some Spangler family members for my dad's cousin - a descendant of the Spangler family. I am looking for a Daniel Spangler born around 1845-1850. His middle initial is either N or W. I was wondering if you could tell me if this Daniel W. Spangler originated in Illinois or what his parents' or siblings' names are. Any info you can give me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Lemuel Bearce, Sr.
Hi --- I sent a SAC earlier. --- There is a Missouri death certificate for David Lemuel Bearce, a son of Christopher C. & Rebecca Melton Bearce. (Born 16 Dec 1868 in Illinois & died 2 Dec 1957 in Bates County, Missouri) He is listed as the same age as Daniel Leonard Bearce in the 1880 Bates County, MO census and has the same birth date, according to his death certificate and Daniel's memorial. ---------His wife was Lucy Bellamy Bearce. I submitted family links through the edit tabs. ---- You can view the Missouri death certificates on-line. Could you please add the links ?

Esdel F. Tarrents
I want to thank you for photographing the grave marker of Esdel F. Tarrents at Teay's Chapel Cemetery in Deepwater, Henry Co. Esdel was the son of my great grandfather and great grandmother. My husband and I are both Find-a-Grave contributors and know how much time and effort it takes to do these memorials. Your service is very much appreciated. Bonnie Craig

RE: John Jamison
That sounds great thanks! I've run across research on the Jameson(Jamison ) Bourland marriage that says he was buried there and notes from sources but, like you, I can't prove it without finding records . I will look into that. Also , I'll see if I can't track down who Mary Jamison is and will get back with you. Thanks for the reply and your time. Doreen
