First a big THANK YOU to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers and the folks who keep it running!

Thanks to my Auntie A I got hooked on genealogy. Her 50+ years of research added to my own 20 years we've sorted out a lot of facts from fiction and put flesh on the bones of our ancestors.

Researching the following: Bottom, Russell, Laws/Lawes, Carpenter, Utterback, Godkin, Krebeck; Wynn; Mills; Hanks, and too many more to add here!

If I can be of help in any of the above, please feel free to ask, after all, sharing is one of the best parts of genealogy!

Carol Mudd Fuchs
Hezekiah Mudd
Hi Dee--
I've added a photo of the stone of young Hezekiah Mudd from Sacred Heart Cem in Scotland Co, MO.
I see there is a conflict of dates. I am making a return trip to Northern Missouri in April and will take another look at this marker and also check to see if there is another. I'm also going to check my Mudd Family of the U.S. book to see if there is another Hezekiah Mudd since there is a marriage noted. If I find out anything else to help I'll let you know.
Feel free to contact me anytime.
Have a great evening!

Memorial # 67128148
Hi and thank you for the memorial regarding my 2nd great grandfather, William Langston Cordry and his wife.
I was just looking at the picture of the grave marker and in my opinion it is very beautiful. I notice etched on the grave marker for death date for William Langston Cordry should be December 26, 1903. 26 is what I believe is the correct day of death, instead of what is printed in his "bio". I don't want to come across as being angry, but just thought I'd mention what I see. Thank you, Anna Herrera.

re John Bottom in Bedlam
Re Photo Request
There would be no gravestone for the entries in Bedlam.
The burials were being uncovered in an archaeological excavation . Very few gravestones were found.

RE: Rose Bensmiller - Hollywood Forever

Rose Bensmiller - Hollywood Forever
I am planning a photo trip to this cemetery soon. If you call the cemetery and find out the exact location of the gravesite, I will try to find her. This cemetery is too big to find someone without the Section #, Row # and Space #. Thanks!

RE: Bare

Thanks for your willingness to help. I am researching my husbands family and
am working the Good and Kirkendall lines. The Bare and Brenneman lines have
come up multiple times and I want to verify what I have.

A few years ago, when I was first getting started in genealogy I made the mistake of copying
part of another family tree. I am now trying to verify my information with documents wherever I can. So far I am having trouble finding proof this linage.

My husbands grandparents, Eva Marie Good & Charles
Henry Kirkendall are both descendants of Melchoir Stehman Brenneman and Anna Greetha Good. To confuse things further, Charles Kirkendall's parents, Noah W. Kirkendall & Mary Catherine Crone were both descendants of Melchoir
Stehman Brenneman and Anna Greetha Good. Do you have any information on the Good and Kirkendall lines as part of your research? At any time was the Bare family also know as Bear or Baer?

My Bare family research started with notes that were gathered by Ilene
Hanefeld Baer in the 1970's and 80's. Can
you send me any information you have on the descendants (or ancestors) of Melchoir Stehman Brenneman and Anna Greetha Good
that you may have (or a link to it online if you have it on

Thanks so much for your help.

Wallace Younger
Hello! I was looking at the page for Wallace Younger, died 3 Dec 1893, buried in Crown Hill Cemetery in Pettis County Missouri, and noticed that in the notes, it was mentioned that he had a first wife "Nancy Allen" with which he had a daughter "Augusta May". Can you tell me where you found the information about Nancy Allen? I've been researching Augusta for many years, and have had no luck finding her mother. In fact, I've found two different Wallace Youngers that died on different days in the same month and same year, in counties right next to each other and am still not sure I have the *right* Wallace Younger as Augusta's father. Thanks so much in advance for any help you can offer!!

Atteberry graves
As far as I know, there are no photos of Hannah M. Cotteral Atteberry's stone or the two infants that you wanted. Harriet Vaught had copied the stones in 1964. Hannah was included in her list. I was with Doris Bland and her husband when she copied the stones in 1973. Hannah's stone was not there, but the two infants' stones were. I took several pictures at that time, but didn't take any of the two infants of S. B. and H. M. I wish now that I had taken pictures of all the stones.
