Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, in the Civil War on both sides and the World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.

RE: Edit features
I agree with all you have written, although I haven't had that experience yet.

RE: John Goodman
Hi Bonnie,
Thanks for all that typing! I googled Goodman's name and was actually surprised when I found his bio already printed, so copied it & finished what you had started. Sometimes I have had that happen while trying to leave a public message like this. It can be very embarrassing!

I sincerely appreciate your help.

RE: McDavitt
Glad I was able to provide some info. that would be of help to you on the McDavitt's. I forgot that the McDavitts could be distant relatives of mine by marriage possibly. A McDavitt married Nathaniel "Doc" Broyles and my great-great grandmother was Grace L. (Broyles) Miller. They even knew each other so they must have been related somehow! Anyway, glad that I could remember where I found my info. I usually list general source info. on my contributor page and only give titles of newspapers, death certificate info. or a spacific book title on individual memorials.

Good morning, Bonnie.
Thanks for the nice long article about John. I hate to mention this but your computer apparently deleted part of John's bio when it cut you off. Do you have the source of the article?

I just remembered that I also found some info. in two history books that I have. One for Randolph and Macon County, Mo. and the other for La Plata, Macon County, Mo. I have added these sources to the bio. area of my memorials for Basil McDavitt, Sr. and his son, Leo McDavitt. Sometimes I use several sources when creating memorials and after doing genealogy for over 30 years it is hard to remember them all! Hope this helps.

RE: Bazil McDavitt
Sorry but I do not have any documentation to support the info. I sent you. I did find some of it on rootsweb. The McDavitt's are not relatives of mine so I will have to leave it up to others to research this family in greater detail. I do hope you leave the links I provided to Basil McDavitt's parents. If not I will add them to the bio. area on his father's memorial so they can at least be linked in some way.

You are the first person requesting proof for what I have sent them. I have found a lot of errors out there on every source you can find and feel that nothing is 100% accurate as a source of documentation. I have found many mistakes on cemetery stones, on death certificates and in obituaries, etc. as well as on Find A Grave and on I feel that Genealogy is only a "best guess" on anyones part.

I wish you continued good luck in finding documents to support what I have sent. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.
