Bio and Links
I helped my grandmother Phillips with genealogy with her searching since the early 1970s in Missouri. My Great Grandfather White furnished and donated the birthplace house of Mark Twain to the National Parks. The interest stuck and I have been working on researching my family history ever since.

RE: Blanche J. Phillips
Thank you for the additional information. I have added it to her memorial. Can you tell me if you know her maiden name, and her middle name? Thank you again!

RE: David Dugger
Hi again Thomas. No problem... The pics of the huge bush and the temporary marker inside are posted on the David Dugger page. Next time I'm there we'll see if there is anything else inside.

All my best,

Hi Thomas,

Yes, I'm certain that there is a grave inside the bush. It has gotten so big, probably about 10 to 15 feet across. I pass by there quite often and will search further inside next time I stop by.

With the confidence of your family knowing about the bush I'll be more determined to dig through it. I took a picture of the bush, and can post that to the David Dugger page until we can get a better photo of what, if anything, is inside, if you'd like?

Best regards,

I added his military marker. Sorry for not putting it on with the other.

RE: Abbie Violette Joiner
You are welcome. As for the death certificates, has to be before 1961. Here is a link to check for death certificates (and lots more other info) in Missouri.

To get to the death certificates, go to the Genealogists & Historians, across to Archives Online Databases, across to Births & Deaths and click that. They have pre-1910 and then 1910-1961. You can search by name or by county. If you put a last name and first initial, it does not usually respond. Some of the spellings and things are a bit off but it's still a good site.
There is lots of different info under the different Genealogists & Historians choices.

Thank you for the Loren Harper headstone photo. I've adjusted the DOB from 1898 to 1899 since it appears from the headstone inscription that he was born and died in both 1899. I'll correct the family group sheet information that I found to that effect. Nice clear photo - much appreciated!
