Bio and Links
Bio Photo NAMES AND DATES on stones take precident over any other source. I do try to add a note with any conflicting info. and a persons full give name if different than what is on their stone.

MY PHOTO PROJECT: I am working on photographing all of the stones in the La Plata cemetery located in La Plata, Macon County, Missouri. Please do not add photos to the memorials that I have created in this cemetery as I would prefer to take them myself. Some photos, that I have already taken, may even be retaken as time permits.

FREEDOM TO USE DATA SENT ME: As of July 7, 2014. If you send me info., links, obits, etc. please note that you are giving me PERMISSION to use it to create memorials or to add it to a memorial. I hope this will prevent any confusion when it comes to info. being shared on this site. If you would like credit for anything you have sent me or plan to send just ask and I will add a note to the bio. area. I guess I should have been doing this from the beginning but I just didn't think it was necessary!

I will continue to do edits for those who are willing to work with others. Please continue to send them using the edit tab in the upper right hand corner of the memorial. BIO.-I would prefer to do family links (send me names and their mem. numbers) instead of adding a persons "full ancestral tree" to the bio. area. Do not send me personal messages using the edit tab as that is "Not" what it is for! Do "NOT" add bio. info. with a flower. Also I would prefer that death certificates and obits. not be added as a photo. Thanks to all the great fellow contributors who have sent info./links to me to be added to memorials. Most of you are now listed as my friends.

For those taking photos please check out this site: How To Get Great Photos For FindAGrave. Thanks Ron West for this link. I hope it helps others take much better photos than a lot of those I have come across on FAG. Also please try not to take photos with your reflection in the stone, cars or people in the background and hopefully with green grass around the stone. No photos taken after dark or with snow completely covering the ground. I prefer seeing the whole stone not just a closeup of it. Do not take photos of an upright stone looking down on it. This distorts the engravings and makes the stone look like it is falling over. Always try to take photos at a right angle to the face of the stone. This may mean bending over or getting down on one knee to take a photo. Also removing dead grass and bird droppings would be really nice and please no shadows of yourself or your body parts across the face of the stone. Remove flowers to get a clear photo of the names & the dates and then always replace the flowers!

Ernest Eugene "Gene" Kinion - New Cambria Cemetery - Memorial # 40727825
Filling in a few details on some of the Kinion family I have found in my tree, and saw your memorial. A couple of questions if possible. In the bio it mentions Ernest had 3 stepsons and 3 stepdaughters. Were these children of his 2nd wife Betty McMurray? And was McMurray her maiden name. Also in the bio it mentions one of the stepchildren as Betty Palliser of Bevier. I found I have a memorial #63274273 from Antioch Cemetery for a Betty Marie Palliser 1951-2000 wife of James E. Palliser born 1947. Do you think this is the same stepdaughter Betty?

RE: Israel Chadwick
Thanks for your help, and info about Israel. I am afraid I am not very computer savvy, but I do stumble along somehow. I will give your directions a try. I will check rootsweb for Israel. He seems to show up here and there, but with very little back up. Thanks again. Peace, Missy

Israel Chadwick
Hi. I am trying to figure out one of my lines, and I see you have a memorial for Israel Thompson Chadwick. You have Israel Chadwick and Hannah Thompson as his parents. I was wondering if you have your source for him and his parents. Israel Sr. seems to be a bit illusive. Any help appreciated! Missy

RE: Joseph K Park
Thanks! I'm not so worried about the name issue. I just wondered and thought I'd mention it for clarity sake. There are a host of inconsistencies between newspapers, obits and actual documented facts I've seen. That's just the way people's memories go then or now. I will check out the LaPlata home press. I'd like to see if there are other articles pertaining to my family. Or at least it would be good to get a snapshot of my grandmother's world as a young girl. Thanks again for bringing this up.
