Bio and Links
Bio Photo I guess I was about 7 or 8 yrs old when I first remember my dad taking me to cemeteries to trace our roots. Now I am an addict to genealogy and cemetery hunting!!! (I think it is from the Mingo Swamp water!!) So if you need something from Stoddard Co., MO, I will do what I can.
This is a wonderful website it has helped me leaps and bounds in my personal genealogy quest!

I like to transcribe entire cemeteries so loved ones can be found, mine & yours. So most of the memorials I post I am not related to. If you see a relative or someone close to you that I have posted & wish to manage there memorial, please just holler & I can transfer it to you as long as I am not related.

I have posted many photos on this site & anyone may use them for there family tree. If you make a million off one of them, please at least buy me dinner.

If you see a mistake or just have more info just leave me a message or E-Mail me. I will be happy to add the info for any additions or corrections.

A question has been asked several times here lately. "Why do you put 'Bio Info Courtesy of' & link that person to the info?" Well I like to keep track of my sources & who sent me what for whom. Also it gives that person the credit for all the hard work they have done. If you do not want your name attached to a memorial that you have given me info on, please just tell me & I will not attach it.

Please do not get upset if I do not answer your messages & e-mails right away. I get alot of messages & e-mails everyday. I try to answer them all quickly but some take longer than others, but I will get to them!! Currently I am working on messages, requests & transfers from Dec 2012.

Happy Hunting !!

Berry B. Lee
I was out at Tucker Cemetery in Dunklin County, Missouri, yesterday and looked all over for the headstone of veteran Berry B. Lee. You took the photograph. Any idea were it is now? I was at the old cemetery on a gravel lane off Highway WW surrounded by Peach orchards.

Virginia Lee Stroud
I believe the entry for Virginia Lee Stroud is actually for Virginia Lee Alsup Hill. Is there some way I can find out if this is correct?

Thanks for your help!

Sapp buried in Bernie Memorial Cemetery in Bernie, MO
Memorial #30457309 Luna M. Rogers Sapp

Luna is my maternal grandmother--She was not born in Kentucky--she was born in Big Sandy, Upsher County, Texas--Her sons name is not Mack Verna Sapp Memorial #31766667--it is Mack Junior Sapp.

Memorial #31766667 Mack Verna Sapp

This person is my mother brother and Luna's and Mack's son. His name is not Mack Verna Sapp--His name is Mack Junior Sapp thus the M. Junior Sapp on his headstone.

Memorial #30457297 Mack Verna Sapp

Mack is my maternal grandfather the date of his death is 1942 as is stated on his death certificate not 1932.

My name is Vicky Borders Armstrong. My Grandparents Mack Verna Sapp and Luna M. Rogers Sapp had 5 children Ellis D. Sapp Memorial #31608955, Mack Junior Sapp Memorial #31766667, Beatrice Sapp Foster, and 2 children that are living so I will not put those names out. Nicole Annette Sapp Memorial #31766656 is their great granddaughter.

I will have to check and see if Beatrice Sapp Foster is on Find a Grave if she is I will find her memorial number if she is not I will get her informations together.

Thanks for all you do. I am not criticizing just trying to correct information that is out there.

Charles Douglas Ezell
Find A Grave Memorial# 22129614
I believe the biographical information is in error as to his place of birth. Both parents appear to have lived in Trigg County, Ky at the time of his birth, (they were married just across the state line in Stewart Co., Tn in 1849), his father enlisted from Trigg Co., Ky in 1861 and his mother Mary Robinson Ezell filed for a widow's pension in 1863 from Trigg Co., Ky. Gilliam and Mary Ezell are in Trigg Co in 1850, 1860, and Mary in 1868 (her marriage to John J Francis) I haven't located the family in 1870 yet. I haven't found any evidence of their living in McCracken Co., Ky, but if you know of any, I'd like to see the source so that I can add it to my records.

RE: Wanderlust Cemetery
Dear Brent,

I am curious if you have ever heard of the Wanderlust Cemetery. My great-uncle's death certificate (from Scott County) states he was buried there but I can find no record that such a place exists.
