I have lived in the St. Francois County area of Missouri for 70+ years. That's big brother Tom on the left - HS days 1953.|
I started out just walking old cemeteries - the history is there.
Got involved with tombstone photos for my own Family History and discovered others already at work doing the same and many were for my ancestors which were also their ancestors. since I was close to some cemeteries they were entering data for, I started taking photos for them as well ..it's Catching.
I now try to check the request list before I go to a cemetery and if I find the tombstone
requested, I will certainly add it for you.
Tying our family members together with LINKS makes it so easy to move through the generations. Many who would otherwise lose interest, find it such smooth sailing they get caught up in the history they can see with just one more click.

The obit link you sent is for a different John Todd. The memorial I created is for my great grandmother's brother and his death certificate stated Bonne Terre Cem., perhaps he is in the city cemetery.
OK, so another contributor questioned whether I had some of the family in the right cemetery. In several obituaries "catholic cemetery" was listed. I finally contacted someone at the historical society (this was years ago) and they said the Catholic Cemetery was in fact, St. Joseph Cemetery. Any ideas?

I got your correction suggestions. Margret spelled her name Margret. We have letters. She spoke primarily French. I will do my best to link them.

Trying to find some information for my husbands family. My husbands grandfather was O.M.Moffett, Sr. and was wondering if your Sadie is related to him or the McCollums? Please let me know. Thanks, Freda
