Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they 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! ! !

Mary McMichael Vannoy
Memorial 72023883 - info added shows: Father is reportedly Robert Vannoy, but he is said to have died in 1802 in South Carolina. So either his death date and/or Mary's birth date is in error.
How can her father be Robert Vannoy when her maiden name is McMichael.

I sent a message edit to add Rhonda's mother to her memorial and apparently I should proof read better. Her mother is Betty
Penberthy, memorial no. 155788765. I'm sorry for the confusion. Thanks so much.

Tillie Marie Canter
Hello. You posted a memorial for Matilda Canter. My grandmother was Tillie Marie Canter and she never used that name. What is your source for using Matilda instead of Tillie? None of my source documents use that name.
Also, what information do you have on Elizabeth Cox, John Canter's wife?

Thanks Debbie. I will look at the Montgomery CO., Gen. Society. Maybe I can find it there or if not we may have the film for those dates. Thanks. Harriett

Smyrna cemetery
Debbie, I am looking for the John R. Long family. I seen where Menerva died in 1904. Is she buried in Smyrna or in Oregon? Also do you know when John died and where? I know he died between 1900 and 1910. Thanks. Harriett Worrell

Mary E. Skinner # 145976279
I am trying to figure out who Mary E. Skinner belongs to. She is buried in the Hays Burying Grounds. Her memorial states she is the daughter of J and MJ. Mary was born 1835 and died 1858. I looked through my names and found James Skinner and his wife Martha Jane Hayes - so that fit the J and MJ. However. James is born in 1828 and Martha Jane was born in 1831 so it is not possible for them to be her parents.
I am wondering if anyone knows who her parents are. She died at age 23 so Skinner could be her maiden name or her married name.
Thanks for any leads.

Flora Pine Bonnell

Good morning, Debbi

Again, thanks for transferring the Bonnell memorials to me (Bellflower Cemetery) Would you be willing to also transfer Noah Bonnell's wife, Flora Pine Bonnell (#98371251)to me? Flora was my husband's grandmother.

I would like to be able to add more information and connect her with her Pine family members.

Thanks very much.
