Bio and Links
Bio Photo Enjoy spending time walking through the older cemeteries, and reading the stones. Have enjoyed being able to submit stone requests, and adding my own family to the site.
Some of the memorials I have created are for my family. Some are for people I have found while taking photos at cemeteries. If these families belong to you, please let me know and I will transfer them to you, or correct information on them if you do not wish to manage them. The information was obtained by searching the Missouri Death Certificates and Ancestry for information.

RE: Henry Thomas Edwards
Now this is intriguing. Melissa Edwards died a year or less after giving birth to a daughter, Bertie, who died at 1 month old (1880). A year later (1882), Henry married my great, great grandmother, Laura Parrish. Their son, my great-grandfather is named Bert Edwards. I can find my Henry in the 1870 census but not the 1880 census, although I can find his parents and his younger siblings still living in the Knox County area.

I had never heard of Henry being married previously, but I think it is within the realm of possibilities. I wish my grandma was still alive. She probably would have known. I have some older cousins that still live in the area that I can ask. There is a new Historical Society Museum in Edina, and they have a facebook group. One of the administrators is related to me via Laura Parrish Edwards, Henry's wife.

Can you tell me anything else about Melissa? Did she have other children? It would be disappointing if Henry had other children and didn't acknowledge them. There were other Edwards' in the area, so it may be something else. It's a small area, and a lot of people still live there, so I imagine we will be able to sort this out.

Re: Memorial# 107288497
Hi, In doing some research in my distance family tree I found that this person in my tree and this memorial are a match except that the maiden name is Haney and not Jones. Could you tell me where Gladys parents name came from so I can keep my records as accurate as possible. Thanks so much. Kim

I saw that you took a picture of her stone in Maplewood Cemetery. I was wondering if there was any other information on the rest of the stone. Her husband and/or kids. If you have this handy, could you add the names and pictures.

You have added a picture of George M Taylor's headstone on her page can you please remove it. I already put a picture on George's when I added him. Thank you

The photo you added with Pearl V. Pinson (wife of Francis) on the marker to a Pearl Pinson memorial doesn't match. Look at the dates on the marker and on the memorial. Pearl Lawrence Pinson is a younger male.

RE: Mumma
Sorry, but the photographs I show are the only ones that I have. They were given to me by a researcher who disposed of his files.

Leroy William Karhoff #8709602

I was wondering if it would be possible for you to place the headstone picture on Leroy's Memorial also to his wife Agnes's Memorial. She is linked to him so she'd be easy to find. Thank you in advance for doing so--it's a BIG help!!

Best regards,
