Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

THE KING OF GLORY will show them favor. The Virgin Mary will befriend them, the Twelve Apostles will bid them welcome. O riches, more than they can ever spend. The angels will play Paradise music. God's poor, rejoicing, will in full voice sing. Far better this than a world unthinking. What joy to souls, the smile of heaven's King!

researching: paternal lines - Canter (Joseph Canter and Millie Capps), Adams ( Wayne Adams & Margaret Jane Atkins), Lawrence, Collins, Atkins, Worthington, Cox, Vannoy, McMichael, Capps, Ball, Shipley, and Whipple; maternal lines - Burchfield, Appleby(ee), Jenkins, Miller, Hunt, Hamblin, Washburn, Hays, Metcalf. One or more descendants of these lines settled in Missouri.

My husband's lines: maternal - Spark (Shpak), Weres (Veris), Alexin; paternal - Gambert, Broetto, Thiessen

For the first two years, the majority of my memorials were created for people to whom I am related by blood or marriage. Now, I've broadened my horizons. I especially enjoy adding memorials for people who have played a role in my life; people I knew as a child growing up, etc.

*** Information for Worthington Cemetery has come from various sources. But, I would like to credit Joel Moore and Mollie Price for the cemetery census of July 30, 1983. ***

*** I have also greatly benefited from the genealogy research of Wilma Baland Adams, Bessie Lawrence McCardie Canter, A. Louise McClintock Shelton, Margie Angel Smith, Ethel "Jean" Snarr Martinsen, the folks of the Canter yahoo group, my friends here at Find-a-grave, and many others, known and unknown. ***

OK, I do have a Find A Grave pet peeve: Please do not add memorials for someone when you do not know where they are buried. I do understand the temptation, but...
("Help With Find A Grave" FAQ) How do I add a memorial when I'm not sure what cemetery they are buried?
This is similar to adding a memorial for cremation. Do not create a new cemetery which does not exist in order to add these memorials. Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known.
! ! !Final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days! ! !

William Cox
Hello. I saw the info you put on Lewis Cox's site. I wonder if you have any idea where William Cox and Mildred Shackleford Cox are buried. I imagine it was out in the hills somewhere in Pike county. They must have died between 1860-1870. I did find a William Cox in a cemetery in Pike county but I have lost that listing. Do you happen to know where that is?
William and Mildred are my three greats grandparents. Dan Bentley

RE: Elizabeth Adams_Old Ashley Cemetery
The original Death Date was 16 Nov 1842, but looking at the headstone it was clearly 18 Nov 1842. The revised Birth Date was taking the information from the memorial you created and subtracting 2 years and 3 months from the 18 Nov 1842 Death Date to arrive at a Birth Date of Aug 1840. Since no days are listed as part of the Age, it could be assumed that she was born on 18 Aug 1840.

All of my information is from the memorials you created.

I am working on a project to document both living and deceased people that attended school in the Louisiana, Missouri school system. I have several people with a last name of ADAMS that I do not know where they are. In an attempt to find them, I am documenting any ADAMS that lived in Pike County, Missouri in an attempt to find the ones that I am missing.

RE: Woodson, Violet: follow-up
Hi, I did remove the photo request--if you wish me to take a photo of where her dad is buried and post that on her memorial? If you want me to do that--then let me know. Otherwise, there is no need for her request to stay up. Sue

Woodson, Violet
Hi Debbi, I just called Greenwood to get a location for Violet and she couldn't find her--the only Woodson is William Woodson and I have already photographed where his marker should be. That is my photo on his memorial. So, unless you have another idea. I ask that you please remove your photo request. Any chance she remarried? She moved? A nickname, another different first name?
Let me know if I can help you. Sue

RE: Clara Mae Bartels?

Appreciate your help..

Clara Mae Bartels?
Hi Debbi,
I added a Clara Mae Wells Leebrick McFee to Find a
Grave today, I think she was the daughter of Albert Christian Bartels and Ada Marie Adams Bartels, (who I transfered to you). I linked Clara to them, feeling pretty sure her maiden name was Bartels. But I thought I'd ask you for sure, I will remove her if she doesn't belong... Her 1st husband was a lineman for the Power Company and was killed, her 2nd spouse was shot accidentally and the last out lived her...
Clara's memorial #130332971..

Minerva Coughman Long
Hi there, thanks for posting this grave. I've just started looking for family after some time off for illness. I'm thrilled that you have this up on Find A Grave. If you are a closer relation, never mind, but if not, would it be possible for you to transfer this to me? Minerva is my husband's 2nd great grandmother on his maternal side. Anyway, thanks again for your work!

Murphy Cemetery
I see you have created some memorials for this cemetery in Embden, Somerset county, Maine. Are you adding photos for those you created? Let me know. I have some photos I could add to them.
