Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be happy to add additional information or make corrections to memorials I maintain. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial (not on my profile page, please) to send your info to me and I will update. I transfer all memorials within the four-generation rule. I do not link to "burial unknown" listings.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) or publications without my permission.

Roger L Smith Sr.Memorial #77238918
Hi,Bev from California. I have a question about his mother's maiden name. On his memorial you have his mother as Florence Kagel Smith. I have her maiden name as Gabbert. She was married to my Uncle Robert Dale Money and is buried with him in Camp Butler National Cemetery. Her obituary states she was the daughter of George and Leatha Van Gundy Gabbert. Also stated surviving were her husband Robert,one son Roger Smith Sr of Springfield and one sister. Just curious what Kagel is possible marriage after Smith and before my uncle. This name must have been in his obituary.

RE: Raymond Horrighs
Hi Bj I'm sorry I'm so long getting back. Yes that is the Raymond Horrighs I was looking for. His first wife was Cathryn Horrighs and she is buried at roselawn. The only one I'm not sure of is Marcella his second wife. You mentioned a Marcella Ray. I wonder if this is her and she remarried. Her maiden name was Marcella Wolfe. Anything you can add would be appreciated.
