<-- My sons, Sean and Eric, and myself, several years ago.|
The older you get, the more deaths it seems, or maybe I was just too young to know the difference. I wanted something to memorialize members of my family and friends.
For all those that took my pictures and used them on Ancestry, it would have been nice for anyone of you to say "Hey, I used your picture on my family tree!" I would have replied with something like "Lets see how we are related!"
Discovering who your ancestors are is one thing, but reading about them even if its just an obituary tells you something about them as a person, not just another leaf in the tree. Seeing their final resting place is a type of closure for me.
I'm looking for any information on Scovill, Hill, Gear, Parlett, Lawton, Shields, Weilbacher, Frierdich, Murrah.
Please don't add any music to my interments. If you have a picture for one of my memorials you'd like to add, go ahead, but please let me know so I can see it! Thanks!
If I've left flowers on a memorial, that doesnt mean that I know them. It could be that I was flowering random names, or I got there by following links from other memorials. I've flowered over 20,000 memorials, and I probably only knew a very small percentage of those people.
This was posted in the forums, and I think it pretty much sums up how most of us feel about graving and looking for our ancestors.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spread out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Alphae Younger/Younger Cemetery, according to family records is a small lot of graves on the family's land. It contain's about 22 graves, half of which there is no record of their names. The ones on here that has unknown probably belongs there. I will be deleting that memorial because she got hers on first of which I was unaware or accidently overlooked, I really don't remember. There is however, according to MY family's records a Younger Family Grave Yard on that land they LIVED on in Jackson, Missouri, unfortunately, it does not say where this land is exactly. When I have time, I will look it all up again, and see if I have a location with more YOUNGER names.

Would you please e-mail me for the answer to your Suggestion. You didn't give me any way to reply to you, and it's too confusing trying to jump back and forth on these Member pages.

A friend told me this evening that the contact is Bill Perkey, 223 E Chestnut St, Rich Hill, MO 64779. Phone (417) 395-4412. Most of the smaller cemeteries do not keep records of burials but only of lot ownership.
|Cebreauky||White Chapel Correction|
Thank you for the information. I made the correction for Mary Hudson. And thank you for the time and effort you put into Find a Grave.
Thank you for the correction on White Chapel cemetery. I have moved her.
Have a nice day, Marsha

Hi, Sherry: I do not have a contact for this cemetery. You might try contacting the people at this website as they are in Bates County http://www.cemetery.poplarheightsfarm.org/html/rider.html

I took the photo of Alma O'Farrell's stone on Friday while I was in the area looking for some of my relatives and posted it today. I also phtographed Jim O'Farrell, her husband, along with Ira and Genevieve O'Farrell (don't know if they are related) and posted them also. Please feel free to use the photos in any way you please.
