|Grantman77||Clark Document emailed|
I just emailed the document. Please let me know if you get it.
|Grantman77||Documents for Clark Cemetery|
I found the documents for clark cemetery and they are now in my computer. I can email them to you-the email address that findagrave.com lists for you does not work and it bounced the email back to me. Is there an alternative email address I can send them to?

Sorry, but I got the photo from a website. The link is as follows:
Sorry to not be of more help.

I created a memorial for the infant daughter of Willie and Artie Gan. I believe this is your family. Would you like for me to transfer this to you?
Best wishes, Suzanne
I'm going to try to get a copy of the documentation for Clark Cemetery. I would still like to, if your schedule ever permits, meet you at the cemetery or at BLDG 470 of Fort Leonard Wood. Whether a cemetery association is EVER formed or not will have no bearing on future burials. If you should have a relative pass away and believe it would be their wish to be buried on land that burial ground that the government now has-they will happily allow it as they have no right or wish to stop family members from being buried there. You may not know anybody who wants to do so but I think it would behoove you to talk with the Funeral Director for Fort Leonard Wood to get the information all together in case the time ever comes that somebody does wish for a loved one to be buried on land that was your family's. The funeral director works in the "Mortuary Affairs" Dept of Building 470 and his name is Lane. I have walked in several times and asked to see him and he is very friendly and very, very helpful.

I'll tell you what-send an email to my inbox: firstname.lastname@example.org -and add my email to your address book so spam filters won't block my reply. I will tell you how to get the info you want. Perhaps if you know when you will be in the area I can introduce you to the Fort Leonard Wood person who can give you a copy of the info.
|Grantman77||RE: clark cemetery|
Do you live in the Fort Leonard Wood area? I first approached Fort Leonard Wood Garrison command and their attorneys after finding spent ammunition in the Clark Cemetery-they insisted it was NOT military related. Since then I have asked them about the deterioration of the cemetery and asked them lots of other questions. Here is the bottom line of the info I got:
#1. The sign that reads "this site is closed to future burials" is completely inaccurate. Fort Leonard Wood's head attorney and the funeral director at Fort Leonard wood both ASSURE me that if a direct descendant (Or somebody married to a direct descendant) of somebody buried in the cemetery wishes to be buried there (Or their family wishes for them to be interred on the land of their ancestors)-then their family merely needs to contact Fort Leonard Wood Mortuary affairs.
#2. I asked them who was responsible for repairing the damaged headstones. They said unless it is proved that it was military ammunition that caused the damage-it falls to relatives or whomever wishes to repair/replace them of their own free will. They said it will remain that way unless the descendants of those buried there choose to form a cemetery association. I pointed out that until they remove the signs claiming it is closed to future burials that isn't likely to happen.
#3. I learned that Fort Leonard Wood has a diagram of the cemetery showing where each plot is and who is buried in each plot. This is because I discovered that the head and foot markers for Sara Gan had been moved and were resting against the headstone for John and Louiza Clark.
I have been voluntarily trying to sit up the headstones that have fallen over just as an act of good will. By the time my research was done-it turns out I am NOT directly related to anyone in the cemetery-although in some indirect ways I suppose I am. If you live anywhere near by and would like to do so I can help you get in touch with the same officials I had gotten in touch with. They were very happy to meet with me and, again, they assured me that they have no problem with people laying their loved ones to rest on land that was rightfully theirs. In the year and a half that I had been doing research at this-and other cemeteries-I noticed that nobody decorates Clark Cemetery on Memorial Day anymore and I thought that you might want to know that as well. It is good-even though it turns out I'm NOT a descendant after all-to finally meet somebody who is connected to the cemetery and I hope you will find the information useful.
If you have relatives in clark cemetery at Fort Leonard Wood PLEASE contact me I have information regarding the cemetery that may interest you.

I am finally getting to your message about taking Nellie Ivey's page off as it is a duplicate. However, I have two...which one? I have one listed as just Nellie Ivey and the other is Nellie Kelsey Ivey.
