|Bio and Links|
Yes, that is me in the tractor to the left. I am a farm girl and love all farm animals except hogs but I do love ham and bacon. I enjoy working on our farm but the past couple of years have been very stressful. Last years cold wet spring followed by a hot dry summer really hurt. This year isn't going well either with another wet cold spring with planting on hold. I just hope things improve soon so we can continue to provide food for our family and the ever growing world population. |
Sources for my memorials come from cemetery records, obituaries, Missouri Death certificates, History books, census records, marriage records and family genealogies collected over the past 30 years. PLEASE NOTE THAT THEY MAY CONTAIN ERRORS. I have found them in every source and try to note any differences in the info. I have found. The Missouri Digital Heritage: Death Records Certificate web-site is a great source of info. but even it states that death certificates may contain errors and I have come across a lot of them. Spelling of names in different sources does occur and this makes it very difficult when adding memorials to a cemetery. Duplicates are thus inevitable if just one letter in a name is omitted or is different! Typing errors can also happen and I have made my share of them. NOBODY IS PERFECT!!!
PHOTOS: I would prefer that photos added to memorials that I create or manage be of the whole stone and taken at a right angle to the face of the stone so the engravings are easy to read. Also it would be much nicer if the stone has been cleared of debree (dead grass and bird droppings). Please don't take photos with shadows across the stone or the sun shinning into the camera as this makes it very hard to read the engravings. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE no people or automobiles in the photos. Photos should be of the grave only! I positively do not like photos with a person in them especially someones behind! Cemetery photos should be of the grave and not of family members or parts of them! Reflections in the surface of a stone should also be avoided if at all possible.
MY RELATIVES & PEOPLE I HAVE A SPECIAL INTEREST IN: These memorials will have a flower added with purple flowers (called many blue by FAG) attached. I would prefer not to transfer these memorials unless you are more closly related to them than I am.
TRANSFERS: Please include "YOUR EXACT" relationship to the individual when requesting a transfer. Do not request transfers just to change the spelling of a name or to delete my memorials for any reason. I will be more than happy to add any info. you might want to add to a memorial but I would like to know your source before making any changes!
FAMILY LINKS: Always include the FULL NAMES, MEMORIAL NUMBERS AND RELATIONSHIPS for any links you wish for me to make. The names or numbers alone are just not enough to ensure accuracy when making links between family members. If I have sent links to others to make and the names and numbers don't match I would appreciate being informed of the error instead of making an incorrect link!! Typing errors do happen and I am sure everyone has made a few. AS I STATED BEFORE: NOBODY IS PERFECT!!
DUPLICATES: I have deleted as many duplicates of mine that I can find. If you just happen to come across one please let me know and I will delete it. Also I would appreciate it if you would not create any duplicates of my memorials.

Tombstone for Eddie Rado Almond says his date of birth is Sept 3, not Aug 3. This coincides with my family records as well. He was my grandpa. Thanks!

|wjweinberg||Jean Thomas plaque|
Since I don't own the record, I can't change the order of the photos on her memorial. Now that the inaccurate plaque is back, you probably want to put it below the original stone.
Sure. I can add a comment about the inaccuracy.
You probably know this, but if Fazzini doesn't respond, you can ask Find A Grave to edit a memorial for you.
"If you have suggested a correction and waited longer than thirty days for it to be processed or if you have found a contributor who you believe to be permanently inactive, please send the correction to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will edit the memorial on their behalf."
|wjweinberg||RE: Photos added to memorial|
Thanks for pointing out that discrepancy. West State Street Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in the city, and I have just begun doing Find A Grave work there. It is primarily (but not exclusively) a nineteenth century cemetery with many stones that are broken, missing or completely illegible. Unfortunately, it has been identified as a haunted graveyard, and it's right next to a neighborhood with lots of college students.
A very highly respected local genealogist did work there in the 1930's and added plaques for some of the stones which were hard to read or missing. I assumed that all of the added plaques were his, but now I realize that he actually put his name on the plaques he added. This one isn't signed, so I'm guessing that someone else less careful must have also done the same kind of work there. I have deleted the picture.
And sorry I sent you the same request that Blytha had already sent to you. I appreciate very much your adding the info!
|Coxie||RE: Photo #11850613|
I would like to tell you how I chose to place the photo of the monument my sister and I took below the photo of Thomas instead of the one you took.
After my retirement, my sister and I took a trip to Missouri to learn more about and meet for the first time our grandmother's family. A trip to Mt. Tabor was high on the agenda as so many of our family is buried there. The photo of the monument is a reminder to me of this trip. The second reason is that at the base of the monument someone has placed a cross. As you may know, Thomas' father was the minister at Mt. Tabor (James Moody) and the Moody family lineage still includes Ministers of their faith. I thought it was fitting. I placed Jo Anne's photo of the individual marker next as it was exactly that; an individual marker. I in no way wanted to remove any of the photos placed here as they are all heartfelt and a contribution to a very special man.
Jo Anne Snow was kind enough to pay to have the commercials removed from his site so that she could add additional photos and others in the future.
I appreciate all the work you have done and thank you for it. I hope this will help with some of your concerns.

Marla, I agree with you that new photos should go to the bottom, not the top. That is why I send a note to the manager of the memorial when I add something. I appreciate your dedication. -- Jo Anne

I have managed to get way behind on my Find A Grave requests and am trying to get caught up. Thanks for the photo of Della and Cyrus Phillips' marker.
|OHS1964||RE: Thanks for the obit and info.|
Sorry about the obit. I scanned it into my computer, attached it to the e-mail and then opened that attachment to be sure it was readable. All was good. I don't know what happened. The correct spelling of the name is Ulsh. Gillette is misspelled once. And do you know what a pishkun is?
Thanks for the feedback. I will do better next time.

|Jo Anne Snow||RE: Photos!|
Whenever I add photos to a site that already has some, I send an email to the manager and let them know I added pics. Then I tell them they may want to rearrange the order of the images as they see fit. I am only providing a service, and if my photos are not used, I do not give a hoot. Sorry you were offended.
