|Hello! We are the Cemetery "Hoppers" Committee for the White River Valley Historical Society (WRVHS), which is located in Forsyth, MO and has been in existence for nearly 50 years. There are over 170 known cemeteries in Taney County, and we have transcribed nearly all of them, including the largest ones! We go on cemetery "hops" at least once a month, and would love to have you join us sometime! |
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION GUIDELINES: We will be pleased to add your additional information; however, as a historical society, we must provide the source for our information (if not found on the tombstone). If a specific source is not listed (ie. obituary newspaper name/date or death cert state/#), we will list your first name and FAG #, or email address if not logged in. By doing this, other researchers will be able to reference the specific source, or contact you directly, if they have questions.
TRANSFER GUIDELINES: We are happy to transfer if you are a direct relative and can identify to us how you are related. The exception to this is if one of our committee members is also a direct relative - in that case, it will remain in the care of the entire committee. (Several of our members have requested that their direct ancestors be maintained by WRVHS, in order to assure that more than one person is available to care for the memorial.)
HOW TO REQUEST A TRANSFER OR CORRECTION/ADDITION TO EXISTING MEMORIAL: Please click on the "edit" tab of the record you are requesting, and then the "correction" link. In the text box, let us know what your relationship is, and also provide us with your Find A Grave number (found on your bio page next to your name). PLEASE ALLOW SEVERAL WEEKS, as only a couple of members handle these, and have full work schedules; consequently, the requests are only checked once or twice a month.
Thank you! - Leslie Wyman and Jeff Michel, WRVHS Cemetery Co-Chairs

I'm researching the Dilks family from Indiana. In the 1910 Census, Clarissa Ann (Dilks) Day and her husband John W. Day were living, with their son, James D. Day in Swan, Taney, Missouri.
I believe the John W. Day whose memorial you published may be the husband of Clarissa Ann, but see no mention of her. In 1910 he was 86 and she was 75. I see no mention of her death, however, and am surprised that she was not buried with her husband. Could you let me know if you saw any indication of a wife burial nearby?
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Is this the daughter of Samuel M Ethridge and Elizabeth Hensley?
The Delant Benjamin story of his being kicked in the head by a horse on the White River in the late 1880s sounds almost exactly like his father-in-law's (John Barrett Long) tragic demise for which there is a newspaper account.

Pat , I would like management of this page, but I believe you have to go to his page and click transfer managment, I cannot do it. Thanks Trish
|Trish Trimble||RE: Frank Black|
Thanks, this is my Uncle , I am trying to link his family for his son.
|Jan Beattie||RE: John Thornton|
No, that's fine. Thanks for posting it. His brother, James "Alonzo" Thornton's date of birth is wrong on his tombstone as well. I asked his grandson if he knew why and he said it was the stonecutter's mistake. And I agree about the informant of the death certificate. They are often not well acquainted with the person and sometimes send in erroneous information. Although I've seen family send in the wrong info, too!
