Genealogy is a hobby and passion of mine. I have always had an interest in it, having learned so much from those relatives who are no longer with us. My memorials are mainly family and friends. I am on Find A Grave to memorialize them and connect with relatives. I am not on this site to collect memorials. |
In addition, I have memorials in Montevallo Cemetery in Vernon County, Missouri. I canvased and photographed this out-of-the-way cemetery for the sole purpose of documenting and preserving in hope of their families finding them. If you are related to anyone I have added and would like to manage their memorial, please let me know.
The State of Missouri have their 1910 - 1964 death certificate collection on-line for free, at www.sos.mo.gov On some memorials I have made reference to a certificate number, for more information.

Lydia was my 2nd great father's sister. After the illness and death of my 2nd great grandmother, his family took care of the children. My great grandfather was the youngest of the children and while the whole family helped with all the children Lydia and her sister, Lucy (Lucinda) did the most caring for the two youngest. When the war broke out, Lydia and Lucy were the main caregivers for the children.
|Wilda Dillion||RE: Montevallo Cemetery|
Thank you for answering me. In 2007 I was given the information on Dillions buried there. I have used this info to add 5 Dillions to this cemetery. I understand that this cemetery is in a remote area and is not being taken care of. I suppose it will disappear in time. Wilda

I was told several years ago that James Dillion 1825-1893 and his wife Emaline 1825-__?__ were buried in this cemetery. Their son H.H. Dillion and wife Clarissa and daughter Effie were also buried there. Have you found their graves? Thank you for all the work you've done on this cemetery. Wilda Dillion

I would like an obit and picture if anyone knows anything about him and Telitha. Apparently he is buried in Leavenworth, Ks.

Smallpox...your not said smallbox...lol
Yes it was in the local paper...Nodaway Democrat
28 Feb 1889 and 16 May 1889.
Locally we have old papers on microfilm at NWMSU..
several ladies worked countless hours gleaning papers from mid 1850's to 1900. Its been very useful for me to locate tidbits for hunters like you.
If I get time in the next week or so...I will pull those papers, copy the lines, and send them to you for your records if you actually need the copies however, you already have the contexts of these two accts of James and Maggie.
|Mandi Brown||James & Maggie Graves|
Just wanted to add:
James & Maggie died the same week of smallpox. Originally interred in the Potter Field section of the cemetery but were relocated to their current site in the Northeast section in May of 1889.
James received a veterans pension of $4 that started in Oct 1888. He was a Civil War veteran member of: Co K 43 Mo Vol
His wife filed for and was approved for widows pension in May 1891.
