I am a descendant of the Daniel Taylor Dean family, Millard Irons family, Solomon Maggert family and Johann Zerfass family. My grandmother, Hazel Surface McPhail and my mother, Lorraine McPhail Dean, decorated graves each year and I went with them, thus my fascination with cemeteries.
My husband's family is John Lafayette LeMaster family, Wm. Jackson Hughes family, Daniel Wainwright family, John H. Boston family, Coleman Pryor Eaton family.
We live in Topeka, Ks. but grew up in Carl Junction, Jasper Co. MO.
I do not know most of the memorials I have built..but I always leave a flower because I believe memorials deserve one. I try to remember veterans, infants, unknowns and old, old graves. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE/COPY MY PHOTOS.
If you would like a family member transferred, please use the EDIT and I will transfer most, except for my relatives.
IN MEMORY Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on. Cherished memories never fade, because one loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart, for as long as there's a memory, they live on in our heart. Author Unknown.
BEYOND LIFE'S GATEWAY There's an open gate at the end of the road Through which each must go alone, And there, in a light we cannot see, Our Father claims His own. Author Unknown.

Hugh Shannon #70431850 Hi! Janice, Is it possible you have a translation of his inscription from his marker. It so hard to read above the word Missouri. I have it so far as "MISSOURI 1829 ??? HUGH SHANNON THE FOUNDER OF THIS HOMESTEAD A NEW HOME IN A NEW COUNTY." What is above this. Thank you for your time. I am only a half 5th great-grand niece to his wife Jane. Take care & God bless. Kathy
Conrad Baver We appear to share a 5th Great Grand Father :) Greetings. My Grandfather Harold was the son of Joseph M. Baver. Who I think was born Johannes. My ancestry DNA shows the majority of my mothers side came from Great Britain and not Germany. I am curious to find out if there is some British Isles ancestry in the Bavers as well. Take Care Mark Ehasz

Andrew Jackson Britt My name is Tina and Andrew is my great grandfather that disappeared after his first wife and son died...he left behind my grandfather Clarence to be raised by someone else. I was wondering if anyone has pictures of his headstone or if anyone knows where his plot is located at the cemetery, or any pictures of my great grandpa so I can see what he looked like... Thanks, Tina Britt Walker
RE: James Madison Randall Hello, As you probaly know Eseck Irons Had been married twice. 1st wife lydia Randall mother of Ephraim Irons. 2nd wife Hannah Randall the mother of Amanda Sophia Irons. Which made Ephraim and Amanda 1/2 siblings. James M. Rndall and Amanda were the parents of Daisy Edith Randall b. 25 sep 1879. Amanda d. 28 mar 1880. This would have made Daisy 6mos. From what I have been told and researched, James M. could not care for the infant Daisy and Ephraim and Caroline offer to raise her. It took me awhile to solve the Daisy Edith Randall mystery. Does your line included Ephraim or Amanda Irons? James M. and Amanda are my 3rd great grandparents. My 2nd great grandmother was there dau. Jennie Mable Randall.
