~ The unfolding history revealed during research of families is so interesting, fascinating, but sometimes tragically sad, causing one to wish they had studied history more astutely and to have listened to stories told by our elders when young ~|
As one contributor wrote about Find A Grave, "Those who think it is only for locating graves have a narrow imagination."
Remember........."That which you share, multiplies and divides. That which you withhold, diminishes and dies." W. Clement Stone
I'm most interested in helping Nancy Brewer in her effort on Find A Grave to recognize the pioneers and builders of my home town of Carthage, Missouri.
SPECIAL NOTATION: Find A Grave has transferred hundreds of memorials to me in Oswego cemetery, Oswego, Labette county, Kansas, of which the vast majority are yours if you so request via "EDIT"! ~ ~ NOTE ~ ~ Find A Grave elected (?) to REMOVE thousands of original contributors photos and rename Mary, "Anonymous" affecting mostly southern Kansas-Missouri areas, so as of late April 2013, these memorials are without her photos and name, but most, still available for transfer by myself and others! Contributor Margaret is dedicated to re-photograph this cemetery, as her time permits and furnish local historical group copies for their records.
In another case, but a different contributor in Arkansas, some 60,000 to 80,000 memorials have been DELETED from Find A Grave, WITHOUT twice requested explanation from FAG!
~ Visit my Websites. ~
NOTE: Several contributors have allowed me to update their memorials by transferring to me then upon completion I return them, ~ ~ if they so desire.
Would also enjoy your comments, corrections, and would dearly love to be given all of my relatives and dearest friends of whom I've deeply researched on Find A Grave which are created by others.
I am a retired civil engineer (raised in Carthage, Missouri(ah) till 1944), with at least three known 3rd g,grandfathers veterans of Revolutionary War, one 2nd g,grandfather (served two years) & two g,grandfathers veterans of the Civil War with father a veteran of WW I, my brother & myself, veterans of WW II, ~ ~ who well over ten years ago was given a WebTv and have since enjoyed setting in my easy chair in Naples, (until November 2006 with moved 35 miles north to Shell Point Village near Sanibel Island, Lee county, Florida), doing genealogy on it till it went out of business 30 SEP 2013, when my 79 websites were transferred by Pris Weathers to host site WordPress.com, so now I'm using a computer.
On 25th May 2010, became oldest in my paternal Boggess line, for thirteen generations, to at least the 16th century, when becoming older than our veteran of the Revolutionary War, Samuel Boggess (1742-1825), with only my maternal great,grandfather, John A Flora, having lived around three years longer as of this writing.
Family lines of most interest to me:
FLORA, Hagee, Shults/z, Wallick.
BOGGESS, Knight, Luke, Robinson, Wood.
Also included among my "Memorials" are all, including 9 blood related, with only 15 listed by others, within this 1964 abandoned Methodist church one acre cemetery we restored in 2004, ie: Point Pleasant
Well in excess of a hundred blood and/or shirt-tail relatives, including a 17-1/2 y/o Burmese cat, have been transferred for my management (one, deleted because she is living) and have transferred hundreds to others. Several others, mostly by mega-number holders are with incorrect information, will NOT correct or stubbornly withheld from me, and refuse to add family links and/or bios. I would like very much to gain management of all my family's Memorials plus those of special interest, on Find A Grave and I'm most ready to share with others.
Several memorials with inactive contributors, have been transferred to me which now have biographies and family links added, helping other researchers. PLEASE NOTE: Should a link NOT open, simply change "org" within link to "net"!
Many cohorts throughout the states have helped me by sharing family information, pictures, etc for my many booklets which were freely distributed to libraries, universities, historical groups, family members, etc and now my many web-sites with documented information of those researched that are related, some by only a thread.
Much of my research is also filed in some twenty or more states with USGenWeb archives, (should the link NOT open, change "org" within link to "net") and some on Pris Weathers wonderfull website and also found on my Amarillo (formerly of Graham), Texas friend's Worldconnect tree, some of which I have used for Find A Grave memorials, search his index for name: Daryl

|Wilda Dillion||Simeon Collier's family|
Bill - Here's another one of Simeon and Elizabeth's children. Asenath Collier married James A Gault 30 September 1858 in Mason County, KY. She was born 19 March 1842 in Trimble Co. KY
and died 30 September 1907 in Platte County and is buried in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery with her husband aand daughter. He died in 1866 which is a year after the war ended. I think he may have been a Confederate and spent most of his time as a prisoner. She doesn't seem to have drawn a pension.
Smeon's one and only wife was Elizabeth Berkshire daughter of Jeremiah Berkshire. How do I know this? The Bible told me so. Simeon Collier's old buckskin covered Bible, last known owner was Donald Singleton.
Thanks for connecting Simeon to his parents. That family is finally complete [according to the Bible] Wilda
|Spicy Guppy||Need ReadableTombstone Photos|
Hi Bill. Could you please post a clear/readable tombstone photos for Carl Sr. and Harriett Gray? I am doing a descendant's application and I can't read the posted tombstones. I need to submit the readable tombstone photos with the descendant's application. Thank you in advance.
|Susan Lawrence||RE: Sarah Jackson Powell Smith|
Thanks! I had found the citation about the cashiering but have never seen the actual book. I have much more information about Ezekiel including some of his other children. Never found where he is buried. I hope you can figure out about the book. You can email me direct at (SDL1177@Cs.com)

|J.L.||RE: Hannah Bradford|
Then would you please correct her parental linkage to be to her own parents instead of her husband's parents? Hannah BRADFORD Bradford was the daughter of Elisha Bradford (#50570189) & Bathsheba Bradford (#105534625).
