Bio and Links
I was born and raised in the small town of Hurley, Missouri, in north Stone County. After graduation from high school I attended Washington University in St Louis and the University of Missouri Medical School. I became a family doctor and geriatrician. I spent my professional life in academic medicine, serving as chairman of departments of Family Medicine in two medical schools. I have been retired now since 2007. My wife is a nurse practitioner specializing in palliative care. We have four sons and two grandsons. I have had a life long interest in genealogy and have pursued this interest passionately for the past 10-12 years, accumulating much interesting information on all branches of my family (and my wife's also). I have published one book and five articles. I am happy to share information or to help anyone that I can.

RE: Rosalia Cemetery
By the way, in the USGS dataset the Rosalia Cemetery is listed both in Spokane and Whitman counties, so it must straddle the border.

RE: Rosalia Cemetery
Using my USGS search app, I found a "Rosalia Cemetery" in the USGS dataset. Here's the link: . I don't think it's in the Find A Grave data. You can do more searching at .

RE: Rosalia Cemetery
The only cemetery that I'm familiar with there is the IOOF cemetery. . There don't seem to be any Springers in it, though it's very possible that the record has simply not been entered into Find A Grave. There's also a "Riggs Cemetery" according to Find A Grave, but likewise no Springers. . Ditto for the Holy "Rosary Cemetery" . Someone would have to go to these cemeteries and look for the marker for you. I'm not sure if you're allowed to enter photo requests here without being certain of the cemetery, but maybe.

William Settle photos
You are more than welcome. Please give credit to Martha and Daine Harrison for the photos (they are my relation). They had an older photo of his stone in their files before the stone was broken. You can add a link to his Find A Grave memorial.. Just a coincidence, I have been working on his son Felix tonight... just can't find where he is buried. Most of the family trees on ancestry have the wrong death date of 1871. That comes from DAR/SAR applications. His obituary is 1874... I have memorials for most of the children, but would really like to link them all instead of hyperlinks...

RE: L Wilson, Memorial # 81646338
Hi Jim - thank you for your note. The information about his capture at Gettysburg and death at Fort Defiance is actually engraved on his headstone. Richard Jordan added two photos. On the close up, if you click it to enlarge it, you can see (barely) the script that was engraved. How sure are you that this is Lafayette? I would love to put his full name if you are confident this is actually him. Regards, Cheri
