Bio and Links
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. You may certainly request the transfer of memorials beyond the four generations, but the original contributor may choose not to transfer (the original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses). Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Headstone photos that are posted on my contributions to FindAGrave are available in a print quality .jpg file upon request

If you would like to have information added to a memorial, please follow the Find A Grave procedure using the Edit tab on that memorial and I will gladly add the info.

***The new EDIT system has generated a HUGE amount of work and caused correct info to be changed to incorrect info. PLEASE use the EDIT tab to offer your contributions but use the "other" option so the memorials will have confirmed and documented info that has been researched. Even if it is a date,location ,etc. change. use the "OTHER" option to send your info.
This new system has made info posted questionable where before you could rely on the research completed for each memorial.

If you would like the higher resolution photo of a headstone I have posted, please leave a public message.

RE: Henry Nail
You are welcome as always. It was good to be out again doing this. I didn't find all of them today, but will next time, I hope. Isadora is one of my favorite cemeteries. Have a great Sunday!

RE: Levi James Allen
You're welcome. The hard water from the sprinklers makes the inscription difficult to read. There is a low cement marker next to this headstone with a hand-scratched writing on it. It is impossible to read but has a tin marker from the funeral home that says Levi J. Allen. I would like to take a rubbing of it to see what it says but I did not have supplies with me. Stay tuned.

If you could so kindly call Calvary Cemetery at (816) 523-2114 and get the location of the burial for me. There are too many requests for me to ask for all of them. You can email me back at and you will have your memorial picture within 2 weeks.
Thank you so much,

Woods' in Smithville
Wow. I don't live in Smithville, but it has grown soooo much in the last 30 years. There was a new dam put in because Smithville flooded so often, and that was done back in 1979. I remember that because my cousin lived there at the time and I was often with her since I was getting a divorce. They absolutely flooded some towns, like Paradise. It's all underwater. And the housing has exploded there. I would almost bet that there is a housing addition on that cemetery now. Any farms still there are worth their weight in gold. And I know that developers do not care one iota about cemeteries. They just plow them over.

There are some maps that show cemetery locations, but I don't know how to access them, but a guy sent me one, one time, that showed the location of a cemetery up the road from me, that has since been "moved". I have to say they did dig a holle about 8' cubed, but where they took that dirt, or whether or not they threw the same dirt back in the same hole is unknown. The obelisk and the old wrought iron fence they ran over is gone. I hate to see that happen. Actually, I think it's against the law and they have to get a permit, but in this case, I know they didn't, and nothing happened to them.

If in 1946 most of the remnants even showing a cemetery were missing, by 1979 there was probably nothing left to even show that it had been there.

The county might know. Or the Clay County Historical Society, if it's still in existance. It was gone, last I heard, but it may have been started up again. All the members died off and the younger ones just didn't care at the time.

I don't know how to get ahold of them, if they are still there. Maybe you can find a number or an address online for them.

I wish I could be more help and more optimistic. It's possible they may have been moved, but I doubt it. Those surviving family members that wanted to, moved their loved ones from Paradise, but many had no one left who cared or wanted to spend the money to move them, and they still lie where they did, now under water. Same with the Bagnell Dam project. There are towns and cemeteries all over the place, under water, there in the Ozarks of Missouri. Sadly, when it comes to money, some people just have no respect for the dead.

RE: Sarah Morris
Thank You for your quick response. I had tried to get change before and seeing you had taken over the memorial, thought I would take a try to get it changed. I sincerely appreciate your efforts. If you could, her husband could also be buried in Bethel Cemetery. His name was Levi Morris and was son of Elias and Catherine. I would
check but I live several hundred miles from there.
I Thank You very much, Sincerely, Jerry

I don't know where she is buried, but the picture of the stone that I took was one that is in Bethel Cemetery near Grant City, Mo. It lies N of tombstone of my grt grt grand parents, Elias and Catherine Morris and My grt grdmother Mary
Morris Staats. My picture is the same stone in Picture taken and submitted by Barbara McCully.
It is listed in Bethel Cemetery, Sarah was the wife of Levi Morris-son of Elias and Catherine.
Just thought you would like to know this in case you would want to change or perhaps figure out exactly where her grave is. With Respect, Sincerely Jerry D McLain
