|Bio and Links|
my name is Diana (Giddens) Shrum my husband is Dave Shrum, we live in Missouri. my father, was born in Hartshorn, Texas, Co. Mo. His side of my family lived in Pulaski, Phelps, Dent, Shannon, and Texas, Co. in Missouri. I cant prove, thu, any of the Indian rolls,that on my fathers side of the family, we have Cherokee blood. In 1832 a Law was made,in Missouri, no Indians could live in the State of Missouri. The light skins Cherokees, and even the darker skins Cherokees called themselves Black Irish,and had to act as if they were full blooded white blood. If it was found out they were part or full Cherokee they would lose everything they own and then sent to, OK. My father, us to take me to many cemetery's when I was young, some he work in part time, and others to show me where are family and loved ones were buried.My dad passed away in 1970 and is buried in Hartshorn, Texas, Co. The name of the cemetery is Antioch/Dewitt. Most of the people who are buried in this cemetery are related one way or the other. I dont live near where he is buried, so Find-A-Grave is the closest I get to a visit, some years.The surnames I am related, to the, Giddens, Stark, Hensley, Morgan, Dye, Clark, Nickles, Buckner, Gale, Butler, Ireland, Dewitt, and many more. My Husband knew little about his family till I started working on his side of the family. The Shrum, Johnson & many more. If you have anything you would like me to add to a memorial, of a love one, family are just a friend. Please use the edit on the memorial, and I will get the info added ASP. I have found that some people don't think, they need to add, the info, sent to them, for a memorial, that has been suggested. I think the more that is known about a person and the life they lived, the more, we get a understanding of who they were,and how they lived there life here on earth. We help, give them a voice, and keep there memory alive. It is sad that we have so many memorials with just a name and dates. They are all more then that, they were,the ones who paved the path we walk. When History about a family is lost, so will its children who are still here, on earth, be lost. No one should ever be forgotten are where they are buried be unknown. No memorial should be held in the care of someone who is not family to the memorial if there is someone who is family and wants to take on the responsibility of carry for the memorial,I think the right thing to do is to then transfer. If, I am in care of one of your loved one's and they are not of my Family, are,if they are, and you are closer in relation,to them then me. If they were your Aunt, or Uncle, Great, or Grandparent's and they were only my Cousins, I believe they belong with someone who loved them, and new them, then them, staying in my care and not be given the respect they deserve. But if you are one who wont give transfer's, in less they are in the FAG guide line's, then don't, ask me, to do for you, what, you wont do for others. Its funny how people who want to up hold the law's or rules on others are the ones who break them the most.|

Did you say that you could add it, if so go ahead. Do you want me to transfer this site to you?

I will have to find the picture. The quality will be very poor--copy of a copy, etc.

Due to remodeling my Dodson family records are in storage. I can tell you for sure, you will find Fletcher Dodson and family in Jersey County Illinois . One of his sons was Aaron Dodson who was a Baptist minister as was Fletcher . Major migrated from Kentucky to Indiana then to Greene County Illinois . From there Major went to Nashville , Washington County Illinois where he and Amy died , You may email me directly if you wish

Thank you for your suggestions in finding my great grandmother. I stayed up late last night searching and searching and putting clues together via ancestry.com and reviewing a lot of Missouri death certificates until the dots connected. Because she died decades after my great grandfather, for some reason or another she was not buried next to her husband or in the same cemetery. I located her in New Marcus and then was able to find my great great grandmother too. Perseverance and prayers answered. Thank you again. I appreciate your suggestions. Lynette

Thank you sooooo much for the transfer of my great grandfather's memorial. Your care and concern for family finding loved ones is incredible. Thank you for preserving in photographic form what may be lost in the future. I'm still trying to locate my great grandmother's memorial -- her name was Mary Christine Luedemann Miller and you can imagine how many Mary Miller's there are. I would have thought she would have been buried next to my great grandfather but I guess not. Thank you again for caring about family finding family. Lynette
Thank you for contacting me! :) I'm going to email you some information.

I have linked Loucinda to her parents and I also transferred her memorial to you .. I hope that is okay with you. I am not related to Loucinda and I think perhaps you are.
|Wanda Crabb||Thank You|
Diana and David
Thank you so very much for sending me the information on Jesse Kell. I have been trying to link people when I add a person to a cemetery, I must have forgotten. Thank you for taking the time to remind me.
|Susan Ing||April 27th at Calvary|
We are working at Calvary again for our next group adventure. 9 am if you can make it.
Way in the back. There are over 1100 requests and so many for 5 and 16. It is sad that we won't find many markers but need to look.
Hope to see you.
|Dennis & Linda||RE: Myrtle Carlton|
Yes, in the bio section. You listed 10 children, Bobby and Mrytle are the two youngest and are not listed. You mentioned that there were 12 in all. Bobby and Mrytle appear in the census record for 1940, with the parents. - dennis
