Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

If you would like a family member transferred, please use the EDIT and I will transfer most, except for my relatives.

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.

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.

hello Janice thank you for bring to my attention that there may be a duplicate for I.S. or Israel Smith. I have looked into this and this was copied from my Drew Co. index book. I don't know why it is listed like this. The death dates are the same so perhaps it is a typo in the book or could even be that there was a father and son had both died on the same day. it is a mystery! I will note on the memorials that this may be the case and will not delete it. I think I may also try to find this cemetery to see if there was a mistake in the book. Thank you!

Thanks again and if you would want to read what I wrote about Jerry(not sure of your relation) you can look at in on FB under my name.

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
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.

RE: Jennie McPhail
Thank you so much for clearing that up for me. I am researching the Ladd line for a 2nd cousin of mine and she is a grandaughter of Ida Belle Silver. Ida was not clear to me if she was a Silver, I just needed some varification. The issue arose from the fact that Jennie was married prior to Mr. Silver. So my 2nd cousin is a descendent of Jennie. Jennie would be her Great Grandmother. I have just started researching her lines so haven't gotten to far, except on the Ladd line. Thanks again, Rose

RE: Jeremiah Deen Jr
Hi Janice,

That Jeremiah's memorial number is 105709695. He is not the son of the older Jeremiah though. They are buried in cemeteries that are near each other. The younger Jeremiah is the son of John Deen and Nancy Ogle. I am sure John and the older Jeremiah are brothers, but have not been able to prove it. If you happen to come across any evidence of this, please let me know. I descend from the older Jeremiah via his son Jacob.

Josiah Stark
Some time ago you requested a transfer for Josiah Stark. I had an opportunity to be in Arkansas recently, and found Josiah's grave at Bellefonte Cemetery. Thought you might like to see the gravestone. It is a beautiful spot in the cemetery.

RE: Thanks
Thank you and the same to you. I've often wondered if our McPhails are connected somehow but I don't recognize the names of any of yours.
