***These are my family surnames in order of significance. If any of them pertain to your own history then I'd definitely love to hear from you. Leave me a message and I'll promptly respond.***


I'm not going to list a bunch of ridiculous rules like some of the many grave collectors do on here.
Instead, I'm going to just tell you that I want to help as many people as I can while making these memorials as accurate as possible.

•I'll transfer ANY GRAVE that you're more related to than myself. Plain and simple. I don't care about silly rules.

•I'll pretty much add any edit or additional information you ask of me.

•I'll also gladly add any obituary that you want me to. This FAG rule annoys me deeply.

MY GOAL here on is to:
PRESERVE & HONOR my own ancestors and as many others as possible along the way.

• Please feel free to CONTACT ME on here at any time. I love interacting with others. I don't understand why some people IGNORE you. I always respond to messages.

About Me

I was born in St. Louis County, Missouri in 1978 and raised close to the same area. Like so many of the people living near the Gateway to the West, our friends, family and the St. Louis Cardinal's Baseball has always been a way of life.

Proudly, both of my parents have a southern heritage. Their history and family folklore's are rich. My dad's grandfather John Henry Day was born in Tennessee in 1870. As a young farmer and in hope of improving his life, settled in southeast Missouri around the Twentieth century, making me a fourth generation Missourian. One of my paternal great-great-grandmothers, Mary E. Black was said to be a Native American Witch , living in the bootheel of Missouri (you gotta love family stories). Mary's legend is still talked about amongst numerous descendants of hers.

My mother and her large family of 11 siblings come from Northeast Alabama. All 4 of her grandparents, Syrous and Rosie (Helton) Guffey and James "Pomp" and
Joanna (Willmon) Guthrie, can easily prove their roots trace back there as far as Two Centuries ago. Like my great-great-great-great-grandparents Ephraim Monroe and Sarah (Underwood) Guffey. Ephraim Guffey, a veteran of the War of 1812, was believed to be the first Guffey to settle in this part of Alabama. His son, Ephraim Underwood Guffey and grandson, Ephraim Berry Guffey are buried nearby in Guffey Cemetery.

RE: Carlton Cox transfer
I believe practically the most of my husband's maternal and paternal sides are buried at Dogwood. Your obituaries have helped me tremendously. Thanks for taking the time to post them all. I'm working on linking them all together. So be expecting some edits from me. I also added you as a friend!

Thank you!
Hello! I wanted to thank you for posting an obit and pictures of my grandfather Ralph Lloyd's grave. You also captured a lovely image of my father Ron Lloyd's grave. I appreciate the little Dogwood cemetery not being lost and forgotten!

Okay - so you're the expert on this line. Ellen Gutherie McLain Morgan (my wife's step-g-g-g-grandmother), #50350398. Her first husband was William McLain. Any idea's on him? What happened to him? Where is he buried?

RE: obits
Hahaha! I typed in the subject and and hit enter to get to the message and it sent it instead.
It's amazing I get anything done, but I am self taught on this computer and sometimes my left brain wins.
