Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired elementary teacher who is really "into family genealogy" and enjoys helping others with research. Enjoy fishing with my husband and being with 5 grandchildren who are involved in sports. Keeps us busy. Please feel free to use any of the photos I take on your family tree or copy them if you choose. You do not have to "give me credit" and don't have to use my name. It is an honor to volunteer to do this and hopefully helps others as much as it has helped me.
Note for 2014 - I have finished taking pictures at Fairmount Cemetery in Cape Girardeau and placed them on the memorial pages. Some tombstones were not "readable" so 100% is impossible. New comment: As of October 2014 all of New Lorimier has been photographed. I am still working on updating and adding information. I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to John Hinkle who originated most of these cemetery memorial pages. He has done a tremendous service to our community. And thank you to Mr. Weaver at the city cemetery office for all his help. Without him, these pictures would not have been possible.

Leslie W 'Buddie' Steel (Steele)
Looking for information regarding Leslie. Saw you left 'flower memorial' on his Find A Grave entry about a year ago. Did you know the family? Any information would be helpful. Thanks

RE: Phillips
Thank you so much for the transfers! And can see from your note that you are as "into" the detective work as I am! Genealogy sure is addicting :)
Thanks again and happy hunting!

RE: Ruby Phillips
I would be honored to maintain Ruby and Hal Phillips' memorials... thank you for offering! Ruby is my 3rd cousin, 1x removed, so is obviously outside the Find a Grave guidelines, but if you are not connected to them, I am delighted to have them in the fold.
Thanks so much!

RE: George Worthen
Ruth, That would be kind of you to transfer his memorial to me. My number is 47142889. His obit in the paper just consist of a blurb stating his father couldn't afford to ship the body home so the county was having to pay for his burial. Thanks again. Debi

RE: David Ronald Palmer
David is buried with my mother (Dora Briggs). There is a headstone for my Mom and Dad, and there should be a marker for David in the middle of my Moms plot. Both were cremated and their cremains are together.

Burial information: Fairmount cemetery Section 9 Lot 70 space 1, Cape Girardeau, Mo. 63701. She is buried two spaces away from her Sister Ermal (Mouser) Briggs and Brother-in Law Wilber Briggs.

If you would not mid could you please let me know if his marker is still in place.

Thank you,
Tim Palmer

Hello Ruth:
Thanks for the photo in Greenwood Cemetery taken by Ken Brown of the headstone for Nellie Mae Adams. I've just gotten back from vacation so was slow in thanking you.
