"Do not regret Growing Old. It is a Privilege denied to Many."|
I grew up in central Missouri where my ancestors settled, most from KY; I often return and photograph cemeteries and haunt the library reference departments. Looking for gravestones for my Daniel Wells, Randolph Hazlewood/Hazelwood, Bert Thoroughman/Thurman, Bellamy/Bellomy, Lane/Lain, Pullen/Pullin/Pulliam, Gregg/Gragg and Page families; others include Dunning, Gant, Payne, Settles/Suttle(s), Stoneking, Stewart, Sudduth.
A goal is to ensure there are memorials for all known burials in the "country" cemeteries in the Bates/Cass/Henry counties where my ancestors lived and are interred, and am photo indexing as many as I can - some are in woeful condition. Too many are now in cow pastures, vandalized or stones used in barn foundations. May those with so little respect for our ancestors be haunted by their ghosts.
Corrections, updates and link requests are welcomed so "our" memorials are informative and accurate -- please send maiden names if you know them. Every person has a story - hopefully memorial managers who prefer not to update or correct their memorials will transfer them to the requesting family member/friend to maintain and add the story -- or there will be a software update that allows third parties to contribute to memorials. Thanks to all the administrators who make the site available and user-friendly, and to the many great volunteers who make "finding Grandma" possible. Special thanks to photo volunteers who spend hours searching for lost grave markers, sometimes in overgrown, tick and snake infested, unkept, unmarked cemeteries.
You are welcome to use information or grave marker photos I have entered. If you do a copy/paste of a memorial with a bio, please copy the entire memorial which includes my name, date entered and the memorial number at the very bottom -- a LOT of time and research has gone into many of these memorials. Please do not copy/post my "people" photographs on sponsored pages.
Please make your edit/transfer requests from the "edit" link of the memorial and not from the profile page which I don't view often. I generally don't transfer memorials with researched bios, nor do I transfer to requesters who are rude/demanding, have no profile or who are collectors -- but will gladly update and link memorials.
Note - Had nerve injury in left arm/hand, 2010 surgery; smashed left hand in door 2011, broke two fingers; broke left wrist in 2012 - typos during each recovery process - please call them to my attention.
When entering information from census records I use the spelling as it appears, even knowing it is wrong -- those aren't typos.
Happy graving - and remember to thank our Veterans and Active Service men and women.

|James Wells||RE: Wells Cemetery|
Thanks for your message. I live in Florida so cannot return. The photos I have were actually taken by my sister when she visited a few years ago. There are just a few. I do have a copy of the names of thirty-two individuals buried there that comes from the Marshall County Cemetery book by Ethel Briggs. I can send it to you if you give me your email address. Regards, James R. Wells.
|Bob & Nancy Cannon||Susan Page/Refuge Cemetery|
