Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been dabbling in genealogy for over 20 years as my hectic schedule has allowed. I love to collect books on Missouri history, and have several books from various counties and towns that I use to do lookups for other family researchers. From a very young age I was taught to respect and preserve cemeteries and was thrilled when I found Find-A-Grave. Now I can combine my love of history preservation and strolling through cemeteries, and use it to help support this great project. I'm on the Board of the Benton County (Missouri) Historical Society which at times takes up a lot of my "hobby" time so if you don't get an immediate response from me, rest assured I will get back to you as soon as my schedule allows.

James Isaac Gann
Hello I'm writing to help with some information and any other facts i may have with regard to the two James Isaac Gann men and family. James Isaac Gann born 1833-1904 was married to Mary E.Johnson 1833-1924. Their son was James Milo Gann 1853-1931 who was married to Lucinda C. Weatherman 1852-1931. They has a son James Isaac "Ike" Gann 1873-1909 and his wife was Ore Frances Roberts 1878-1949. These are my direct descendants as well as the parents to My Great grandmother, Mrs.Lou Elsie Goodwin-Gann Hensley 1907-1984. Elmer Ellsworth Gann 1896-1964 who is listed on the memorial page in reference was one of her brothers. If i can answer any more questions, please feel free to contact me anytime. I can also provide pictures for many family if i have them. Thank you for showing all of them so much love.<3

Find A Grave Change
A friend told me about this chance a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section or do linking.

There are two Hall cemeteries in Douglas Co. Until recently, Find A Grave did not indicate which was Ongo or T Hwy.

You have Elmer and Lillie Gann listed on the Ongo site. They are actually buried at the Hall (Old Meritt) Cemetery on T Hwy.

Can you delete them from the Ongo site?

Schaeffer Cemetary
Hi -

I spent part of my childhood in Warsaw, Missouri, and I was wondering if Schaeffer Cemetary is still mostly intact? It was a very special place to me when I was a kid (I used to hide from my brother there).
