Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy became my avid hobby in 1998. Ancestors on both paternal and maternal have been in the U.S. since at least the 1700s. Via FindAGrave I have found data via their gravestones that was unavailable elsewhere. I appreciate every person who has taken a picture and posted. My thanks!

RE: Update to Leonard Peach request
Thanks for the correction, I must have not been paying attention on the year of death :--) I am not sure about his first name being Archie, might been his middle name, because none of us knew him by anything other than Leonard :--)

RE: Permission to use & a thank you...

I went back and looked at the photos from that day, several of their children were listed on the stone as well so I have added them and their photos. The back of the headstone is quite worn, so it may very well be the original one, the small surrounding stones are still very white but many are unreadable. The cemetery is meticulously kept and their plot is in a more secluded area, high up off the street.

You can use the photos, please use this citation which will direct others to this site (and hopefully they will contribute here as well) - Photo taken by Tracey Goodwin for, member #46990892)and used here with photographer's permission.

Meshack Smith Sr.
Hi, I saw your note with flower at

"Meshack Smith is either the father of Jeremiah Gore Smith or his older brother. Both were some of the very first people to settle in Sullivan County, MO. He was born about 1764 and was from Boston, MA. I'm a direct descendant of J.G. Smith and Mary Ann Sevier."

I'm looking for more information about Meshack's background and his family origins. You mentioned that he was from Boston. Can you provide more details? Thanks :)

RE: Thanks so much for James McMahan image
You are welcome. I could not find Susannah's grave stone at all when I took photos months ago of the cemetery. My guess is that when the survey was taken her grave stone was not visible.

My Dudleys were in Virginia in the 1700's.

I've added other memorials for McMachans this weekend. I hope you can use them. Do you want them transferred to you?

Lydia Creason
We looked for the stone of Lydia Creason but was unable to find it. Unfortunately there is a lot of poison oak at this cemetery and there are at least 2 stones that are mostly covered by it...I was not willing to dig them out; I am a chicken!
