Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have family buried in Blackwater cemetery and as no one had transcribed it..I decided to try. I am sure there are mistakes, if you find one, let me know and I will fix it.
The cemetery is a nice one with a great rock fence on one side. There are many stones with no markings. Many stones that are broken and many that have fell over or leaning badly. There are stones laying on the the stone wall. The cemetery needs a lot of care.
I tried to read the stones but there are some that I can not read.

My family surnames includes Sorency,Morelock, Briggs, Spor, Spangler, Giron, Iserbogel, Hyslip, Broyles, Dalton, Kelsey, Light, Whitson and Long they hail mostly from Laclede and Johnson Counties in Missouri and came thru Tenn and Ky to Missouri.

My husband's family names are Roark, Garrison, Enloe, Essex, Grey, Campbell, Tapp, Kindle, Howard, Close, Stevens, Mitchell and Childers or Childress. They hailed mostly from Cole and Camden Counties in Missouri

I am in the process of adding family photos to our grave sites. Please do not use my photos on other web sites. For your personal files is ok. Thank you.

Feel free to contact me concerning any of these names.

Hi, so glad you've done this ~ thank you ~ these are my husband's 3xs Great Grandparents ~ we are visiting Johnson Co MO but are from Peoria, IL area ~ how do we find Blackwater Cemetery? We would really love to see it, but can't find it on google maps and the guy that runs Sunset Hill Cemetery here in Warrensburg has no idea either. Please help us. Thank you ~ Mary Jo Moore

I've really enjoyed reading all the info you have on the Spor and Spangler side! Have you attended any of the Spor reunions? There's one in Florida next summer.

Desta Jeneta Roark and James W. Ross
Hello from LR Arkansas. Am working on my husband's side of the family. His grandmother was Blanche Blendina Ross. Her mother Desta Jeneta Roark Ross, married to James W. Ross. Desta died when Blanche was about 10. Her father, James, remarried and he had children with his second wife, who apparently was very unkind to Blanche and her siblings. I think all-told James had 10 or 11 children.

I'm trying to locate information on the Ross side but come up with a dead end. You've done a great job with the Roark family line so I am assuming you know that area of MO and may know of some sources of information I might look to for information about James Ross, Desta, and the children they had together.

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.
