Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been very envolved in searching down my ancestors for 30 years. Finding a new cemetery is very exciting and when I find a new little one I over indulge and tend to photograph the entire site. My pictures and Internments are all individuals that have somehow found their way into my ever growing family tree.
Currently I live in Eastern Iowa along the Mississippi River which is a wonderful starting place for journeys in search of my early ancestors.

I hope you enjoy my pictures and the information I have tried to share

RE: Thank you so much for picture
Thank you for your response! I thought your name seemed familiar. Landon and Mary have been a challenge for me to figure out. I have so enjoyed over the years searching for family members and learning about them. Paschal Chapel has been interesting. He was a horse back riding circuit Methodist minister and traveled between Kentucky and Missouri preaching along the way. Thanks for all you do in your volunteer work. It is appreciated so much!

Thank you so much for picture
Of marker for Paschal Chapel Newell and Clara (Yates) Newell. They are my great grandparents. Their son, John Solomon Newell married Maude Estelle Hoots and had my father, Howard Orland Newell. I really appreciate your time and efforts as a volunteer!

RE: Spouse of Thomas Lay, son of John Michael Lay & Rachel Leah Foley...
I think we are on the same track and probably related. I tracked what little I have through find a grave. I wrote to the historical society in Campbell county and havenít heard anything from them yet. I don't have a lot of information. By tracing my father Paul Otis Lay (Joan Carol Pritchett) to his father Perry Oscar Lay (Dora Margaret Frame) to his father George Lay (Elizabeth Manley) to father Thomas Lay (Have several different possibilities) all in Missouri, then the first thing I found on Tennessee who was John Michael "Missouri Jack" Lay (Rachael Foley). The information I found on him. Here is the link to his find a grave.
I have more on the family closer to our lifetime. I would like to exchange information with you.

RE: Vincent Donald Bean
Hi Mark. I'm glad you notified me about the edit not being completed. I never received a message about the edit request from Find-A-Grave and when I went in to approve it I also had two prior edit requests from months back that I was never notified of either. I've made all those edits. I'm going to transfer his memorial to you. He is my relative but he is a closer relative to your wife. Take care! David

Martha Scott #21791191
Based on your photo and the transcription I am proposing to change her name in the memorial from Martha (maiden McMeans) Scott to Martha (maiden Scott) Irwin. Do you agree with this? (I don't believe that I'm direct relation to this person. I'm just sorting through the Scotts, Donleys, and McMeans of Jackson Cnty.)

RE: Samuel Besse
Mark, you are so right. I am hoping to be able to work on restoration in a few years when I hope to have more personal time. It is so sad. Thanks again for the photos. Are you related to Samuel?

Mark, my apologies. I enlarged the photo you took and can clearly read the inscription. My vision was the problem. Please forgive me.
