Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Debbie, and I am a genealogy researcher, mom of 3, wife of 30 years, pet owner to 5 cats and 1 dog , gardener & crafter, and am a teacher to 3-5 year olds for that mighty paycheck. When I am not looking for my own family's records, I am out exploring small cemeteries and taking photos for those requesting cemetery photos close to me. During the summers I like to venture out and seek out stones and learn of the history that made me who I am. My favorite so far is Parke County, Indiana. I walked in the courthouse to find directions to a cemetery, and the clerk was a distant cousin!!! I also love to research Labette County KS for family tidbits. Family Surnames: DANIEL, POELMA, WATSON, HUFFMAN, SUMPTER, SUMTER, COOPER, COPPINGER, SAYLOR,BOWMAN among others.

When weather is bad, or I don't want to leave home, I like to work on crafts, mainly sewing, crochet, or counted cross stitch. My current project is to the left of my bio.

I also encourage you to join a Facebook group I admin, called "Find A Grave Volunteers" (

Happy Digging!

Hi Debbie,

Thank you for all your hard work on all of your research. It is so important. I would just like to transfer 21098561 to my ownership if you would as this is my father. He is currently living but soon will be losing him to cancer.

Thank You,
Debbie Glass Ernst

RE: Transfer request
Hello Debbie,

I was not rude. I apologize if I suddenly overwhelmed you with an email & additional requests after I hadn't seen a response from you since my post in November. My expectation was based on other user transfers which generally take a 1-2 weeks.

I work full time too. I'm on vacation and traveled 1/2 hour to LDS center to use their internet service & library resources. I do not have internet service at home. I'm working on my tree this week that's why I have time to search for & request transfers of relatives memorials on Find A Grave.

I followed guidelines by submitting requests per memorial number. I sent you an additional email in case you didn't have time to check your messages. I only did this after not receiving a response for 2-months.

I'm a non-expert and would never presume to ask for control of what you have created if it is has special significance to you personally. My intent is to allow the information to be available to my family. And, as a beginner, I have not run into this problem before with anyone, but again, I apologize if I offended you.

Best Regards,

Jill M Routh

Dr. James Monroe Perkins
I have some information about Dr. Perkins. He and Laura actually had another child, Zylpha Laura Ivenhoe Perkins b. Dec 1889, MO. She has a memorial on here.
If you have any questions please feel free.

RE: Waite's at Wooden Cemetery
Harriet Waite, my paternal great great grandmother was the daughter of Harriet and William Wooden. Harriet Wooden was living with Harriet and Albert Waite in Monett, Barry Co MO at the time of her death. In the 1880 census, Albert and Harriet Waite are listed next to William and Harriet Wooden and both list the occupation as farmer. Also next to the Wooden's is their son William Thomas and his family. His occupation is listed as carpenter. They were all in Mt Pleasant, Labette Co KS. In the 1900 census William Thomas is in Colorado. According to a book I have on the history of Barry Co MO, the Waites moved to Monett, Barry Co MO in 1888 and I am assuming Harriet Wooden moved with them. She was listed at their residence in the 1900 census.
Since the cemetery is named Wooden Cemetery, could it be that the land was a part of their farm? Would be interested if you find out more information about the cemetery. Lynn
