The 1964 Missouri Death Certificates have been published. Until I have processed my 1964 memorials with the information, Edit requests will be put on hold.

When/if asking for a transfer, please, be sure to read the guidelines at Frequently Asked Questions and be sure to state your relationship otherwise requests will not be fulfilled.
You don't need to own a memorial, and you don't need a transfer just to add additional information. I'm always more than willing to add additional information.

Find A Grave plainly states that photos added should only be those that you have personally taken.
Please do not add photos lifted from online obituaries to memorials. (Some people just can't read.)

Obituaries added to Flowers...Just plain tacky!

Obituaries will only be added for those who have passed at least 25 years ago and contains no names of living persons.

If ever I don't get your change requests exactly as you'd like, don't hesitate to contact me once again.

If you would like a copy of one of my photos for your personal use that has been watermarked in the lower right hand corner use the Edit tab to "Suggest A Correction" to request a copy that hasn't been watermarked.
Be sure to include your Email address.

Info on member #3419058
I'm going to make some additions to this members family per the following info.
Regards, Frank Hampton

Joseph DEGOLIA was born 27 January 1828 in Prattsburg, Steuben County, New York, one of fourteen children of John and Hannah (HICKS) DEGOLIER. (This branch of the DeGolier family changed the spelling of its surname to DeGolia sometime in the 1840's, probably for pronunciation reasons. The name continues as DeGolier, DeGolia, DeGolyer, etc. throughout the United States.) Joseph's older sister Eleanor C. (DeGolia) LEWIS DOUGHTY (1823-1900) was my great-great grandmother. In 1850 Joseph left Steuben County for the California gold country arriving 31 July in San Francisco on the ship "Gustave," which had made the passage from Panama in 85 days via Acapulco, Mexico. During the next ten years he did some mining, general merchandising and operated a lumber business. In 1861 Joseph enlisted in Company C, Fifth California Infantry and served in New Mexico and Texas before being discharged at Mesilla, New Mexico, 30 November 1864.
Sargeant Joseph DEGOLIA reenlisted 1 December 1864 at Mesilla and served until 17 September 1866, at which time he headed for Missouri with the intention of buying stock to take to southern Colorado for resale, but when he reached Bancroft, he thought that the country thereabouts was the most beautiful he'd ever seen, and he decided to remain there.
Joseph married 22 October 1867, Sarah HAINES, daughter of Ezekiel and Minerva (COOK) HAINES of Daviess County. They had four children while living on their farm in Sugar Creek township, Harrison County, where they remained until 9 March 1901. Sarah DEGOLIA died in 1912, and some time after that Joseph moved to Liberty, Clay County, Missouri, to live with his daughter and son-in-law, Robert and Fanny HARBAUGH. Joseph died there 27 April 1918, and he and his wife are buried in the Gilman City Masonic Cemetery. The journal, from which the extracts are taken; a memoir of Joseph's life, including a description of his years in California and during the Civil War; the 1827 Bible which originally belonged to John DeGolier with a full family record; and numerous other items became available at an estate auction in Liberty in 2001. The buyer contacted me, having seen my query on GenForum, and I subsequently bought the items from him. [Please see extracts from Joseph DeGolia's Journal on the Harrison Co. website.]

Interesting news find
Hello, I was searching old newspaper articles for my own family and came across an article about Chester Calvert and Earl Jones. "2 Men Perish In Plane Crash and Fire." in the Southeast Missourian newspaper - May 15, 1933, page. 6

It mentions his aunt Mrs. Maude White. I thought it was an interesting, yet sad article and thought you might want to know about it.
