Bio and Links
Bio Photo A ninth generation American, I've always found cemeteries interesting, peaceful and relaxing. I began taking photos long before my fifth cousin Jim Tipton founded this wonderful website, Find a I specialize in taking photos of old headstones where I live now in Sussex County Delaware as well as my former residences in southeastern Pennsylvania and where my father Isaac Tipton was born, the hills of western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. You have my permission to copy any of my photos for your genealogical and personal use.

"Remember man, as you walk by,
as you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, so shall you be,
remember this and follow me."

Have a great day!

Hey Ron - the pic you posted for Sallie J. Butler is incorrect - you've posted one for Sallie A. Butler (1830-1917) - please remove. Thanks. Corey

Tipton memorials
I have transferred the Tipton memorials to you.
As I told you on previous message, Jolene Ackerman, who has the son Adam's memorial will transfer the Tipton memorials she has created if you ask. I told her you may be contacting her.
As far as other states that offer free death certificates, I have never found another state that does besides Missouri.
Thanks for sharing you family info, I found it very interesting.

Tipton memorial
Hello Ron, I noticed that you had visited the Tipton memorials I had created at Cureall Cemetery in Howell County, MO. I would gladly transfer the memorials to you if you would like. I created them after coming across their death certificates while researching some graves at Union Grove Cemetery (also in Howell County) that were only marked as Tipton babies. Also the son that survived, Samuel, is buried at Filer Cemetery in Twin Falls, Idaho. There are several Tiptons at the Filer Cemetery. Contributor Jolene Ackerman created most of them and has offered to transfer them to me, so I'm sure she would do the same for you.
I have plans to stop by Cureall Cemetery soon and see if the Tipton's have gravestones, if so I will add pictures.
You may or may not know that you can research (and print) Missouri death certificates thru 1963 free at You may find many of your Tipton relatives at this site.
Let me know if you would like the transfers. Kathy
