Bio Photo NOTE: ~ ~ Please send corrections and or updates; I want things to be accurate! As one "graver" said about Find A Grave.

Remember........."That which you share, multiplies and divides. That which you withhold, diminishes and dies." W. Clement Stone

~ The unfolding history revealed during research of families is so interesting, fascinating, but sometimes tragically sad, causing one to wish they had studied history more astutely and to have listened to stories told by our elders when young ~

I'm most interested in helping Nancy Brewer, aka NJBrewer, in her effort on Find A Grave to recognize the pioneers and builders of my home town of Carthage, Missouri.

~ Visit my Websites. ~

NOTE: Several contributors have allowed me to update their memorials by transferring to me then upon completion I return them, ~ ~ if they so desire.

Would also enjoy your comments, corrections, and would dearly love to be given all of my relatives and dearest friends of whom I've deeply researched on Find A Grave which are created by others.

I am a retired civil engineer (raised in Carthage, Missouri(ah) till 1944), with at least three known 3rd g,grandfathers veterans of Revolutionary War, one 2nd g,grandfather (served two years) & two g,grandfathers veterans of the Civil War with father a veteran of WW I, my brother & myself, veterans of WW II, ~ ~ who well over ten years ago was given a WebTv and have since enjoyed setting in my easy chair in Naples, (until November 2006 with moved 35 miles north to Shell Point Village near Sanibel Island, Lee county, Florida), doing genealogy on it till it went out of business 30 SEP 2013, when my 79 websites were transferred by Pris Weathers to host site, so now I'm using a computer.

On 25th May 2010, became oldest in my paternal Boggess line, for thirteen generations, to at least the 16th century, when becoming older than our veteran of the Revolutionary War, Samuel Boggess (1742-1825), with only my maternal great,grandfather, John A Flora, having lived around one & half years longer as of this writing.

Family lines of most interest to me:
FLORA, Hagee, Shults/z, Wallick.
BOGGESS, Knight, Luke, Robinson, Wood.

Also included among my "Memorials" are all, including 9 blood related, with only 15 listed by others, within this 1964 abandoned Methodist church one acre cemetery we restored in 2004, ie: Point Pleasant

Well in excess of a hundred blood and/or shirt-tail relatives, including a 17-1/2 y/o Burmese cat, have been transferred for my management (one, deleted because she is living) and have transferred hundreds to others. Several others, mostly by mega-number holders are with incorrect information, will NOT correct or stubbornly withheld from me, and refuse to add family links and/or bios. I would like very much to gain management of all my family's Memorials plus those of special interest, on Find A Grave and I'm most ready to share with others.

Several memorials with inactive contributors, have been transferred to me which now have biographies and family links added, helping other researchers.

Many cohorts throughout the states have helped me by sharing family information, pictures, etc for my many booklets which were freely distributed to libraries, universities, historical groups, family members, etc and now my many web-sites with documented information of those researched that are related, some by only a thread.

Much of my research is also filed in some twenty or more states with USGenWeb archives, (should the link NOT open, change "org" within link to "net") and on some on Pris Weathers wonderfull website and also found on my Amarillo (formerly of Graham), Texas friend's Worldconnect tree, some of which I have used for Find A Grave memorials, search his index for name: Daryl

Hi Bill,

I have an article from 1937 that is about God-Ruled Factory, I deal Mother of 1937. My grandmother, Jewell W Parker, kept articles that interested her and saved them in a scrapbook. I am scanning things that are important to my family before I put the book back into storage. If you would like a copy of the article, please let me know soon. It has a lovely picture of her in the article. Maybe you already have a copy.

Let me know,

Jewell Albright

RE: Harold Borland (#44175885)
Hopefully, if the administrator of the original memorial is understanding, that page could be deleted or merged with yours.

This seems to be the same person as Harold Borland (#3129532). Maybe you can ask for a merger of the two?

RE: interesting you
well, well. I am always suspicious of people who fail to list any contact information.. why are they hiding?
I noticed on her 'friends' list that you are not listed. Maybe she finally got the message? :)
Best wishes & Happy New Year!
