A MEMORIAL SKETCH
On October 1, 1913, the Death Angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Farrar of this city and took away their only child, Luther Morton, aged three years. The little one was only sick five days.
Never was there a more patient sufferer than was little Morton. All that loving hands could do no wrong, but our infinite father saw it best to take Little Morton home to a better land.
Morton was an unusually bright child. To know him was to love him. Just as he closed his little eyes in death he pointed his little hand heavenward and smiled a sweet smile of happiness. Jesus called them unto him and said, "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of Heaven."
Funeral services were held at the home by the rev. F. L. Alexander, pastor of the First Baptist Church. Followed by a large circle of sorrowing relatives and friends, the remains were taken to Sunny Slope and laid to rest to await the resurrection. The little one is survived by father and mother. They have the sympathy of the entire neighborhood.
"Another little lamb is gone to dwell with him who gave, Another little babe has silent in the grave. God needed one more angel child amidst the shiny band, And no he bent with loving smile and clasped little Morton's hand."
- Richmond Missourian

Do you know how to post phtographs of gravestones? If yes, can you post the photo of the gravestone? That would be awesome. You could write a short description with it saying it is a handmade gravestone, etc. Thanks. From, Becky
Just got back from vacation in Sheridan, Wyo, home of my grandfather JJ Waddell. My Aunt Bez gave me a picture of Jackson Waddell and his wife Martha Wheeler, that's as far back as pictures go. Bez's daughter Joy is another researcher.
All for now
I'm a new member so I don't know if this is something to worry about, but James Alfred Waddell is the same person as James Waddle in Decatur County, Indiana. There is a photo with James Waddle, and links associated with James Alfred Waddell, but it's definatly the same person. The family name was Waddle when they lived in Decatur but morphed into Waddell when they moved away.

I do not know what cemetery Robert H. Johnson is located in and there are many Robert H. Johnson listed. You can go to 'begin new search' and type in the info you have, the year he passed away is a great help. Then look for him there. Good luck. Sandra

I do not know Robert H. Johnston. I post obits. from the paper and funeral homes and when I check to see if they are already posted I leave a flower. Sometimes all the info. from the obit isnt on the memorial. I post that with the flower so family members like you can find it. I hope it helps in your search. God Bless, Sandra
