RE: T Russell
Hi Maggie, he has a stone there but it is very eroded and barely readable. You can see it in the top pic here T R Russell If you look in the 2nd pic there he is in the same plot as Jane and George Russell just a bit to the left.

You are very welcome! A lot of the unphotographed graves in Highland Cemetery are unmarked...I was happy to find a headstone!

RE: Joseph O Tindall
You are very welcome. I just wish there was some way to preserve or restore the Round Prairie Cemetery. It is a mess with broken headstones stacked in piles. I had a lot of pioneer ancestors around there, but no one is left to care for the cemetery now. I took all of the pictures I could.

RE: Re: Henry Cotton
On the mothers initials, I think you need to consider that there was probably an & before them, which might take the M out? And the last letter really looks like an H to me. Just not sure...

RE: Re: Henry Cotton
Thanks Maggie! You think it says M.A. for the mother? I couldn't figure that out. But I had chalked it in 2 different colors trying to bring that out, and the inverted image is one with the chalk.

Maggie, did you see my message and photos?

RE: Re: Henry Cotton
Well, I did it, but I didn't have a lot of success. The stone is so old that some of the letters are worn off. You can see "Son of" better, but as far as parents go, it may still be a mystery? I did post the photos on his memorial if you want to see, and did an inversion of the one photo. You can click on it twice to see a larger version. The first initial looks to me like an N., but it doesn't look like the N on the end of Cotton, so I'm not sure. I think the second letter is an &. Then possibly an I and an H. on the end. Let me know what you think?

RE: Re: Henry Cotton
Thank you Maggie! It was cold here this morning, but hopefully it will be warmer tomorrow. We aren't getting snow, thank goodness! I have to go back to Sedalia tomorrow, so I will check out what you sent and see what I can do tomorrow. :-)

RE: Re: Henry Cotton
Well, unfortunately it was freezing cold and I couldn't get a rubbing of the stone. I have never chalked a stone and I know they don't like people to do it, but I thought if I used sidewalk chalk and brought water to wash it all off? I'm not really sure how to go about it either? How do you chalk a stone?
