Bio and Links
I, too, began family research nearly forty years ago, before the internet exploded our options and resources. Now that I've found Find A Grave, I've become addicted to preserving the information found on older monuments that are weathering away and linking families together.

Most of my memorials involve extensions of my (huge) family lines, Civil War soldiers, and other older fragile monuments.

My own lines include BAUMAN, BIRI, BONE, DALTON, JOLLY, LaROSE, MAYBERRY, NAEGER, RICE, STOREY, and TONGUAY in Missouri counties Madison, Perry, Ste. Genevieve, St. Francois, Washington,

Thank you to all the volunteers before me who have posted information on elusive family members.

RE: Robert Pare
Thank you for letting me know that you agree on the maiden names. My great-grandmothers both went by their married names, but that was almost 1900 by then. I always thought it was after they left Illinois (Momence area), but I'm not sure.

The person that sent me that info on it not being true that they kept their maiden names, was so adamant about it that I didn't know what to think (which is why I kept it as a separate note). It's probably been long enough that I can remove the note without a lot of flap though. Thank you very much for your help!

Organization VMM
Name of Unit Flood's Ste. Genevieve County VMM

On January 30, 1865, Governor Thomas Fletcher had an order issued providing for the creation of the Missouri Militia. This organization was made up of independent companies that were referred to by county designation as opposed to numerical designation. Its troops were provisioned by the Federal government and paid, at least in part, by imposing a fee upon "disloyal" citizens residing within the individual counties in question. Sixty-one companies were formed, fifty-five of which are identified in the chart below.

David Flood (1st Lt.) Flood's Co., Ste. Genevieve Vol. MO. Militia.

Aaron Hammers
Judy, take a look at the memorial and see what you think. I found Aaron and his wife Nancy listed in the 1880 Census and the Civil War pension index with the surname of Hammers. I made a note below the Civil service info.

Again thanks!

John E Carnes
Kent Kooi and I have been doing research on the men of the 4th Iowa Cavalry for over three years. We would like to ask permission to use your headstone photo of John E Carnes, buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, in a Power Point presentation we are putting together to donate to the historical societies in several Iowa counties. We would credit the photo as "Courtesy of Judy Mayberry Belford." Please let me know, and thank you.
