|Bio and Links|
My family is from the little village of Briscoe, Missouri. As a child, I remember my Dad working on our family's history and now I am adding his work to my Wells Family website. Many of my ancestors are located in the cemeteries in and around Briscoe. Some of the surnames are Wells, Briscoe, Broyles, Morris, Huff and Willis. I look forward to sharing information with other genealogy members and possibly finding some missing links for my family.|

|s. stice||RE: Shelton Cemetery|
You are welcome! I spend 2 months a year in Pittsylvania Co, Va researching my family. The Shelton's moved to MO from there. The gentleman who lives on the farm with the Shelton cemetery taught me the trick on the tombstone 4 years ago and I have used it since then. A simple can of shaving cream--no fancy additives. It fills in the indentures in the stone. He used a paper towel to wipe off the excess, but I found a rubber shower squeegee works way better. First I remove most of the lichens, dirt,& debris with a non abrasive soft brush usually nylon bristle. If the stone is readable, I shoot it. If not I try water, then if it is still not clear. I put shaving cream on my hands and run them over the lettering, filling in the carving, use the shower squeegee to take off excess. Shoot the stone, then rinse off with water. Needless to say, if it is raining hard this process does not work. For letters that extrude from the stone, I will sometimes use kids big white sidewalk chalk. good luck, sue

|Walter H. Pack Family||Re: # 42771878|
Hi Patriela: Can you please transfer Jonah Morris to me. I can fill in all the gaps for you
because Jonah was married to Virginia Jane Pack who is my direct ancestor of Samuel Pack 1755-1833
Find A Grave # 77611621. It would help me a lot to connect to. If you can transfer Jane Morris as well it will be a Godsend. Thank you for setting up the grave Lot Numbers. God Bless you for all you have done in helping others.
|Greg Lamberson||Minnie Willis Huff|
I am a descendant of the Willis family. Specifically, Minnie's father James Spilvin "Spilly" Willis was my 3rd great grandfather's brother.
I would love to discuss this family with anyone interested, as I have made some discoveries in the last few months.
