Update Feb 2014:|
I've been told that people have hesitated to contact me since my step-son's death in September. Please feel free to do so, as I am still working on Findagrave almost daily. It has been a saving grace, and I very much appreciate the kindness and caring of the Findagrave community.
Update October 2013:
Please visit my virtual cemetery for "Jake the Great", created for my step-son lost to a series of circumstances resulting in him taking his own life on September 10, 2013. Jacob's bio contains a letter written by his father, and it is our hope that it may help prevent this from happening to another family. Please pass it on to whoever you think may benefit from it. Thanks, and God Bless.
Since 2007, I have been dedicated to locating, listing and photographing all the Randolph County, Missouri cemeteries I am able to get to. I have completed listings, with photos of each stone, of about 155 cemeteries so far, mainly to provide the county historical societies with updated listings and accurate locations. I am just starting to put these on findagrave, and in the interest of saving time, have only entered the name and years for now. I have more info for most of these memorials, which I hope to add and link as time allows. It is my thinking that having just the names and dates posted may help someone find their relatives. I am very willing to transfer memorials to relatives, even distant ones....just ask and let me know how you are related. I will be glad to fulfill photo requests as I am able to, so if you are looking for someone in a particular cemetery, please feel free to contact me.
Please use the Edit/Suggestion tab to send info or to request transfers. Thanks!

|Pamela Harris||Simeon Buford Harris|
Hello Nancy - I have just requested a grave photo for Simeon Buford Harris. I wanted to let you know he was also a confederate veteran. He served in Clark's regimen, company A, out of Howard County Missouri. I know this because I requested his service records from the United Daughters of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia. He was not killed in the war. He became ill and came home from Alabama or Arkansas. I'm told he walked home. Simeon was my great, grandfather. My father William Lee Harris was his grandson. My dad was born and raised in Moberly, MO.
I am the family "historian" if you will. I have been doing some genealogy research over the past few years, and as luck would have it I am currently in Missouri. Just passing through on my way to the west coast, but thinking of my dad while I'm in the state. (He died in 2003)
Thank you so much for doing this work. I appreciate it very much. It's nice to be able to connect with family from the past, and gather a feeling of where you came from.
I had Larry set up a stone that had fallen face down. I thought that it was a request, and it turned out to be so. He is a great help to any one that has a question about the cemetery. I have added about 5000 memorials to Oakland and I think we are approaching the half way point. Hard to say how many there will be when we are done. Take care and don't eat to much Thursday. David and Susan

THANK you for posting a picture of my grandmother's tombstone. We were wondering if the death date was listed. I see it is now.

|Gerry Stanley||James Garner Mathews|
Added the info you provided re parents to his bio section. Looked for links but didn't find anything conclusive. Did find a Mary Mathews, wife/of J. Mathews in Lafayette County where the dates would work. Memorial #102117343. Take a look and tell me what you think?
|Tammy ||Richards Dupe|
Hi Nancy, Thank you for alerting me to the dupes. I have deleted both of the memorials. It is so funny how I do all the due diligence before creating a memorial but every once in a while I find one or two that get thru. Let me know if there is anything else I can do. Regards - Tammy

|Jana Burgess||James H. Hardin memorial|
Thanks for all you do. the James H. Hardin bio. has me curious. James H. Hardin b 1840, d 1912, is my 2nd great grandfather. Is his parentage listed confirmed and if so, how? The Hardin's are a difficult family to track. I have been unable to find evidence of Benjamin Hardin (1810-1879) as his father.
|J. Dods||Thank you|
Thank you so much for all of your hard work and contributions to Find A Grave, which have been invaluable to me as I research my family tree.
