Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a descendant of the Walker, Westfall, Kinser/Coffey, Whisler who m. Rebecca Turner from Ohio, Hill, Altum, Burch, Bingham, and Sullivan, families from Texas and Wright Counties Mo. The Fagan, Kent, Keele,and Johndrow families from Kansas City, Ks, Pettis, and Hickory Co Mo. The Fagans who came there from Arkansas. The Kents, Links, Sarratts, and Cummins from Sullivan Co Missouri including Appanoose Co Iowa. Would enjoy hearing from anyone else interested in these families. Also I am available to help with Iron County Missouri inquiries, bios or pictures of gravesites.
I search out those in my area who made a difference in the lives of others and/or those who might have been all but forgotten. Then make an attempt to give them their due by creating memorials or adding info to memorials that already exist. I believe they earned the right to not be forgotten with the passing of time.
I promise to never become a high number contributor or one that rushes to buy the newspapers just to enter the obits on FAG. I promise to transfer memorials to their "APPROPRIATE" requesters (this does not include Family Pools or Related Family pools) and never act as if memorials or pictures of headstones belong to me. They don't. I have experienced those who feel this way and I am totally disgusted with their pompous claims of, its my gas, time, camera, sore feet, sweat, blood, and tears. Whine, whine, whine,(check out the definition of "VOLUNTEER" in Webster's) or I have had too many transfers deleted therefore refusing to transfer memorials to those requesting them. What a lame excuse that is. Hey, if they delete them then just post them again. The best excuse for not transferring memorials has to be claiming to be the caretaker of a certain county's cemetery records. Then you offer to add or link info but request patience of the requester because you are only 60 to 100 requests behind.
"COMEON" people. Just do the right thing.
If you don't, whose going to put your sorry butt on findagrave? "NOT ME."

Those who have no pride in their ancestors are not worthy of being remembered by their descendants.

"I wake up in the morning, delighted to be waking up, read, write, feed the birds, watch sports on TV, accepting the fact that in the forseeable future I will be a dead person. I want to remind you that dead people are people too. There are good dead people and bad dead people. Some of my best friends are dead people. Dead people fought in every war. We are all going to try it sometime. Fortunately for me, I have always enjoyed mystery and solitude."
The Dark Side of Death by Tom Davis who was one of my most favorite comedy writers.

Just an apology for the three times I have changed the spelling of this man's name in one week. I promise this is the last one. I am an experienced genalogist who works on it 6 to 12 hours every day, and this is the most confusing name I have run across.
Thanks for your patience.

Patsy Ann Walker
Thank you for the correct death date for Patsy,
I had assumed she was born and died the same day, since her marker had 1936 for both...
Appreciate your help..

Baptist Home Cemetery
Rick, I saw you took 2 photo's for this cemetery. Do you know much about the cemetery? Is it connected to The Home for aged Baptists? In the 1940 census my Gr. Gr. Gr. Grandmother was listed living in the Home for aged Baptists and she died 2yr. later. I have no idea where she is buried and I stumbled on the Baptist home cemetery. Her name is Samantha E. Branch died in 1942. Any help or info would be wonderful.

Anthony Walker death cert.
It does show 1919 as date of death at the top, but at bottom it shows 1918. Their main listing is 1918. I don't know which is correct.
