Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of southern Michigan, I live in central Missouri where I practice law as a profession; indulge in photography for fun and maybe some day profit; and search for ancestors in hopes of attaining a greater understanding of family and self.

I take photos as way of paying forward the kindnesses shown me by others in my search for knowledge about my families (CREGO, PARK, HENDERSON, MEYERS, HATCH, LOSEE, DUTCHER, STRANAHAN, DIEFENDORF, PIERCE, ROWLAND, CLOUGH, WHEELER, KNICKERBOCKER, MOON, WHITE, PETTIT, SINGER, GREEN, BURNS, MARBLE, HAWKS. to name a few).

I create memorials mainly for placement of photos. My hope is that the photos will help you find your ancestor and that you will then ask for management transfer. I will happily transfer management to a family member so that you can fill the pages with information and memories.

Members have my permission to copy any photo that I have posted for any use as long as photo credit is given.

PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTION OF MEMORIALS IN MISSOURI.

RE: James Leist Memorial # 117173604
Deborah,
Wow! How novel of them. What an expenditure.

Is the headstone in Union Cemetery also sizeable? Is the Union Cemetery headstone also engraved with both names?

The death certificate for Sarah Jane (Hayes) Williams Leist lists Williams Cemetery with son as the informant.

Perhaps James is buried in Union with other family members and Sarah Jane is buried where the family wanted her to be buried.

Could there be anyone with Union Cemetery records that would know the story.

What a delightful mystery.

Deborah,
Drat, I was hoping that you were related to James Leist and I would refer memorial #163569633 to you.

Since the headstone for James and his wife are located in Williams Cemetery, would you please consider the deleting of the James Leist memorial in Union Cemetery at Bosworth?

James Leist Memorial # 117173604
Deborah,
After photoing a few headstones in Williams/Austin Cemetery in the flood plain South of Carrollton, I created a memorial for James Leist #163569633. Then I linked his spouse. I noticed that her memorial listed 2 husbands named James Leist---which I did not understand why.

Today, an email from a wonderfully active findagrave contributor pointed out that there are 2 memorials created for James Leist--one by Deborah and one by Bonnie.

Would you be related to James Leist?

Hi Deborah -

Would you consider transferring Ann Stutsman Tufts to me? She is a great aunt (several times) to me.

Thank you for establishing a memorial for her!

Sincerely,
