Bio and Links
I started out just responding to photo requests for Mound Grove Cemetery in Independence, Missouri. The cemetery was established by the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints in 1904.

I found myself walking up and down the same rows over and over hunting names. I then decided I would take a certain section, record the names, come home and check to see if they were listed. If not, I would go back and get a picture.

Then I found out that Jackson County Genealogical Society published a book in 1997, with the cemetery assisting with information, which I could purchase.

So now I am taking a section at a time and in some cases re-doing my photos.

I am happy to transfer memorials to family; just let me know. Plus, my photos are for public use should you wish to copy them.

RE: Orville M St John
You are welcome! He is buried very near my parents. It was a rare sunny day in Portland and Mt St Helen's was visible from his gravesite. I will upload a scenery photo to his memorial page.

Everett Lee Shakespeare
Everette Lee Shakespeare is the son of Hazel M. (DeLong) Shakespeare and James E. Shakespeare. His memorial number is 60817281. Would you please link him to his parents?
Hazel is a distant cousin of mine and I appreciate finding the family on Find A Grave and certainly appreciate the work and time you have obviously been putting into making this information available to so many of us.

I will be very grateful to you for linking Everett with his parents.

If you are wishing to transfer some of the memorials you have created, I will be happy to have to you transfer this family to me.

Delbert & Helen Bogue
Hi Martha,

You have Helen Bogue in Find A Grave Memorial# 76303475. Delbert and Helen died and were buried at the same time. You do not have Delbert Bogue, that I could find, on Find A Grave. Does he not have a headstone? I am a distant cousin of Helen.

RE: Bebout
No I am not a relative. I am just trying to update some of the memorials that have been put on earlier. It seems to be a hobby of mine. Surely hope you don't mind.

Would you add Patrick's parents to his relationships? His parents are Luke (#60926380) and Mary (#60926381). One of Patrick's brothers was my great uncle. I'm trying to get everyone tied in together.

Thanks you!
