RE: John Yoakum
Yes I know Rockaway was a place to go. We lived about two miles out of town and my husband worked in Branson. Yes the pig had a few piglets and we paid for his services so all ended well on both sides.

I will get ahold of the office at Hazelwood and ask if she is there. If Belle is there I will let you know and what info they have on her. I know the people there very well. Have been friends with the office lady for years.

No, I'm sorry I don't have any info on Missouri. Sorry I can't be of further help!

RE: John Yoakum
Thank you Brad. So are you part of that Forsyth, Taney County, Missouri Melton family? I cannot remeber which Melton family it was but when my husband and I was down there about 1976 they loaned us a boar hog that stayed with our sows for a week. It was much appreciated. We actually was in Rockaway Beach MO. at the time. I have added this info to the memorial you sent me.

RE: Elmer and Opal Nease Ragsdale
Related only because of the Ragsdale line, not directly; about 7th cousin, 1x removed. I've been working the Ragsdale genealogy for many years like a puzzle trying to link them together with our Immigrant Ragsdale, Godfrey. If you are related, I'm happy to transfer any of your family memorials that I maintain.

Last month you added a photo to dad's memorial page. Find A Grave#26792653 By any chance is it a cropped image from a group photo? At one time we had a small collection of photos taken at the PD. The collection spanned a good portion of the nearly 20 years he spent there. Since mom's death, I have not been able to locate them. If you have access to the original and it is a group photo would you please email me a copy?

Thank you for adding it to his page. It was a very nice surprise.

James DeLong
Hey, Brad!
For two years now, James A. DeLong b 1859 d 1895, buried in LA, has been my homepage on Find A Grave. I've been busy editing someone's book, and just noticed today you posted the death notice!
Are you absolutely positive that this is Maggie Carriger DeLong Kinney's son? And is there a marriage record?

It made sense to me that it would be him. He had Carriger family in CA, albeit further north. And he would've known how to operate a telegraph machine, since the LA James is listed as one in the city directory. But I didn't know anyone who could verify this was Nat's stepson. I'd be interested in talking about this! :)

RE: Photograph
Sounds to me like the photo you may have is of Harold Edward "AKA Buster" Mead, Jr. or Second son of Harold Edward AKA "Harry" and Maude [Hillhouse] Mead. Buster was born Feb. 18, 1911 in Branson, MO. He died in Nov. 9, 1996 in Stephenville, Berrien, Michigan. This was our last contact with Buster.
"zip code 49085 (Saint Joseph, Berrien, MI) The address I listed was on an envelope he sent to my mother when he sent her a Christmas card with a little note in saying he and Pearl were doing okay. Signed by Pearl, she also said that Buster had just opened a new chicken rest. the last fri. but did not have any help. Envelope dated Dec. 15, 1983."

Hope that helps you.

But to answer your questions, no Dusty Rose, AKA Cecil Mead was not called Buster. It was always Harry's kid the whole family hardly remembered his name as we always called him a matter of a fact I near went nuts tryin to remember what his name was. I used to talk to him on the phone a bit when I lived at home with my folks. We always had contact with his dad, but he was mostly someone we would call on occasion or he would call us.
