Peter Root
Please post this to his bio. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Texas Co., MO.

Peter Root, another successful tiller of the soil and prominent stock raiser of Burdine Township, was born in Middle Sweden, Skofde, November 11, 1850, and is the son of John and Joannah Root. The father was a blacksmith by occupation, and came to America in 1869. He settled at Moline, 111., but subsequently returned to Sweden. Peter
Root learned farming and railroading in the old country, and in 1871 crossed the ocean to America. He first located in Putnam County,
N. Y., and worked in the Tilly Foster Iron Mines there for four years. In 1874 he came to Missouri, and worked at farming near Verona
until 1878, when he started for Prescott, Ariz., and went from there to Albuquerque, N. Mex., where he spent eighteen months; thence to Silver Cliff, Co1o., and finally to Cabool, Mo., where he has since remained. He Was married at Verona, Mo., to Miss Anna Gustafson, a native of Sweden, who came to America in 1872. To this marriage were born four sons and one daughter: Albert, Carl, Edward, Ellen, Dora and John William. Mr. Root has 160 acres of nice land,and pays considerable attention to the raising of fine stock. He has served with credit as a member of the school board, and he and wife are worthy members of the Lutheran Church.

Carl Mottice #3917500
Maggie, I am Lynette Baker Carl's wife's Arianna Hall, great niece. Arianna and Carl had 3 children...Charles b. 1920, Janiece Evelyn b. 1922. I have their info but Janiece is not on findagrave as yet. There was another child I know was a girl [I think her name was Linda]. Arianna's sister, Abbie,[my grandmother] took care of her for about 4 years after Arianna's death. Arianna died during her birth, so this child was born in 1931. I know nothing more about her.

I thought you might like to add some of this information to Carls site.

RE: Photo of Catherine Carraco
You're very welcome Maggie. I'm glad I could find it for you. Have you ever been to that cemetery? If you'd like, when I go back again, I'll take a couple of pictures & email them to you. It's very beautiful there. Have a great day, Judy

Clifford Hatch 1937-2010
Find A Grave Memorial# 47589548 -
Hello Maggie,
I wonder if you remember if the headstone photo you took for Clifford was in a mausoleum and if it was a burial niche or a cremation niche.

The photo you took was great however it has nothing around it to give me a perspective as to size.
I don't know if Clifford was cremated or buried.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
Gary Mowrey

Thank you for recently adding the flag and service "Thank You" to Gary's Find A Grave memorial. He was my first cousin. He died much too young.
