|Bob Couch||RE: Elisha Cameron Cemetery Photos|
Thank you for your response and thank you so much for helping to preserve what can be preserved of these burials. In going back and re-visiting the Cameron cemetery page on F.A.G., I realized that there are actually three of my ancestors whose headstones you have photographed!: Mahala (Munkres) Malott (my GG-Grandmother) and both of her parents - James Munkres & Agnes (Crowley) Munkres (my GGG-Grandparents)!
I had long ago nearly given up on seeing these ancestors' headstones (one of my distant cousins had tried to find their headstones about 10 years ago, but the owner of the property at that time wouldn't even let her on the property), but you have made that possible for me and my distant cousins descended from these ancestors! Since no known photos or other likenesses of these folks are known to exist, these headstones photos are essentially the only physical representations of their existence that we can look at.
Thank you, once again for this valuable peek into our ancestors past!

I want to thank you for those photos. Mahala (Munkres) Malott was my GG-Grandmother, and I have many stories about that family and related families. My Dad still has stories of his grandmother, Josephine (Malott) Storms, Mahala's daughter, so my connection to Mahala is not so very far, but I live in Portland, Oregon and have never been able to find the time to travel back to Missouri and walk in the places my ancestors walked. I had been in touch over the years with many researchers who had told me stories of what I believe is rather callous treatment of a relatively sacred old family burial ground. I would love to get your personal feedback of the circumstances of how you found the headstones and what it was like to discover them, photograph them, and to preserve some element of this historic site. Thank you, once again, and I hope to hear back from you... - Bob Couch (email@example.com), Portland, OR
