Bio Photo "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first." I Thessalonians 4:16

What a truly glorious vision to behold. The graves will open and the dead in Christ will ascend to meet Christ in the air.

Family history is my retirement project. I've studied American history and family written and oral history for most of my life. Connecting with other family searchers has been a blessing. Combining Find-A-Grave with is a great way to make connections.

Primary names for my family searches are Hittson, Gordon, High, Bray, Griggs, Dodson, Weir, McGinty and Umland.

My only regret is missing out on any question I could have asked of a family member. Now my granddaughters laugh at me and think I'm talking to dead people. I hope to leave them a family legacy of stories and details of those who came before.

Hester Memorial number is #62312598
Looking for her parents,relationship if any to Jane C? Baldridge b. 1819 - d. 1884 who was married to Samuel Wallace b.1820
Is Samuel related to John R Wallace who was married to Hester Baldridge?

Thanks for any help.

Vicki, Do you have any info on Hester's parents and/or first husband John R Wallace?
Thanks for your work on posting graves.

So guess this means that Martha Ridgeway is the correct wife for Beverly S. Mayes, born 1814? So sorry you have all that work to do to move folks around. I know, I've been there. It's easy to do when people have the same names. Transferring the memorial would be great, any associated with Beverly's family would be OK too. Thank you

I am doing research on FindAGrave on the Raymond Merle Mayes family which has led me back to Drury Mayes, son of Beverly Mayes born 1814. Your entry for him on FindAGrave shows his wife as Penelope.
I believe his wife's name was Martha Ridgeway. This can be found on their son, Drury's, death certificate which can also be found on Missouri Death Certificates online. Drury died in 1916 in Centralia, Boone Co., Missouri.

All children shown with parents Beverly and Penelope are really children of Beverly and Martha Ridgeway.

Would you please research this further and advise what you come up with?

Hi Vicki,

I am unable to put up his grave marker as there is a five picture limit on posting free pictures. You must either remove an existing one or sponsor his memorial.
