RE: Kent Isbell
LOL! Taking Mom to the reunion even with the help of my sister and husband was very hard and a lot of things that I usually do while in Dunklin County just didn't get done this time. I didn't get to spend much time with O. L. and Kay but I did visit some with Kent;s sister, Cindy. I will get a new picture the next time I am there.

RE: Kent Isbell
David, I did make the trip to Missouri and I forgot to go take a new picture of Kent's headstone. I apologize. My 90 year old mother made the trip with us and it just slipped my mind. Your cousin Kay is a real sweetheart and one of my favorite cousins. I will make sure it gets done the next time I am there.

RE: Daniel Blish and family

Boy, all of the Daniels and Davids in this family; it took a bit to get them figured out.
And I am still confusing a few.

I added #150874949, Daniel Blish and wife 150874949 today and linked him to parents. I don't know where they are buried, presumably in Cass Co., MI. I will hopefully discover the place of interment as I do research there- most of my Gebhard family are ironically buried in the same county, and I had noticed a Blish in one of the same cemeteries as them. ANOTHER David Blish # 128597514, son of yet another David B.

A brother of the Danial you sought was , yes, another David, # 93959922, who died trying to rescue other passengers on a boat that burned and sank with him. I sent bio for his memorial and parents and wife link requests as well.

I am not related; I bought a copy of the 1905 Blish genealogy years ago and some of the ephemera in it really interested me, especially the "letter edged in black" for Henry Purmort, Memorial# 121830087. I've heard of them and know the song but never saw one before. I sold the book to a Blish in MT a few years was his gt. grandfather who wrote it.

Here is the URL to the online Blish book:
