Bio Photo Returned to Missouri after spending 2001 thru 2010 in SE Pennsylvania. Presently working for the State of MO. so this is something I do in my spare time. My dad's family turned up in Lexington, MO. I believe in the 1880's orgins from Scottish and unknown orgins, my moms family has orgins in many different European nations, the most notable being the Rickey's of Scotland.

I have removed the Mt. Moriah Cemetery as burial location and made it "Unknown" at this this time. Thank you for the information.

RE: Mary J Griffiths gravesite
Thank you Bill for this info, esp about Higginsville being a coal mining town. It makes sense as my great-gf Thomas Griffiths was listed in the 1900 & 1910 censuses in Lackawanna PA (near Scranton) as a coal miner and also his son George. It was most likely his occupation in Wales I would think.

Thomas & Margaret lost their 3 oldest daughters quite young. Finding Mary Jane's grave is the first success we've had to date about any of them.

They immigrated from Wales in 1880. The photo I attached to Mary Jane's site is the earliest family photo taken of them in 1886. The dates on the gravestone indicate that Mary Jane was the baby in that photo.
We think the oldest child is Anna Griffiths born between 1883-84 and we know she died before 1895 as she is not in the 2d family photo we have of only the parents and the last 3 children.

1) Anna -- (1883?) no birth or death dates yet
2) Mary Jane born 8/2/1885 d. 11/11/1888
3) George Edward born 11/29/1887 in Richmond, Ray County, MO
4)Another daughter (I think another Mary Jane or Anna) born about 1891-1892 (think she died about 1897 of Scarlet fever because my gm remembers being about 4 when she died)
5) Maude Winifred born 4/22/1893 (my grandmother) also in Richmond, Ray County, MO

Just a note of curiosity: Mary Jane was buried in Lafayette county in Nov 1888, yet George was born the year before in Nov 1887 in Richmond, Ray County. And they are back in Richmond by 1893 where my grandmother was born. I don't know much about that area (having grown up in CA) but just wondering if there was coal mining up in the Richmond area as well... Thanks again so much for your help. I will look at some of those other areas you mentioned to try and find the other 2 sisters.

Merry Christmas!

Mary J Griffiths gravesite

Amazing how a date and stamp on an old photograph (1886 Higginsville, MO) can lead to your post on Find A Grave! Our family had no idea our great-grandparents had lived in that area of MO. This is such a wonderful blessing to add to our family search. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! Little Mary Jane was one of three of my great-grandparents children that died young. Only 2, a later born son & a daughter, my grandmother, survived to adulthood. Thank you again and God bless you for this beautiful gift!

Merry Christmas!
Anna and family

PS still looking for their little Anna who may have died close to the time their Mary Jane did...

Norman and Mary Pool
I really appreciate your time and effort in trying to get Mary and Norman Pool burial site for me. It's always a lot more work when there are no headstones or obvious plot areas.
I'm running across this a lot with my poorer relatives and also in the time period in which they died.
Thanks for your help!

Once again I am thanking you so very much for the photos of my 3rd g=grandmother and Martha Logsdon. I have waited a long time for these requests to be filled, and they mean so much to me. The photos are really great and I also appreciate this. Many blessings for the wonderful work you do, and for the time and effort you take to help those like myself who can not do for themselves. Thank you so much.
