Eliza Adams
Hello you created a memorial and took a picture for Eliza Adams in Crown Hill Cemetery in Sedalia, could you speak with Roger at the office the next time you are at the cemetery. I was there a week ago and tried looking for the tombstone myself, he looked at his books and couldn't find her, so apparently someone forgot to add her in the book. This will greatly help me the next time I make a trip to Missouri. Thank you for your help.

RE: Wm and Malinda Gant
Thanks again, I had a photo request for them, and the person said there is no record or stones for them in that cemetery...I am putting him back in Henry County for now.

Thanks so much for transcribing the inscription on Jane's gravemarker. I had tried manipulating the image to read the insription with no success, but I really appreciate knowing what it says now.
Those polished granite markers are hard to read, especially if they face north and never get full sunlight on them. I find that spraying with water helps bring up the lettering if you can get good light on them, but north-facing is just rough most of the time.
I wonder if the younger Jane was nicknamed Jennie so she wouldn't be confused with her mother. The mother's obit states survivors included a daughter named Jennie.
Family names can get confusing sometimes.
Thanks again for your help!
