Bio and Links
I am over 40 years old. I am looking for family members like Harrison,Lowes,Ott,Gailey,
Cox,Ketchum,Balliet. This also includes related families. I also create memorials of family members, yet exceptions will be made. I am interested in an exchange of information from others whom might be related to the graves I manage.
If you find you someone related to you.I will be glad to transfer, and if you find a duplicate please let me know along with the FAG# and correct Find A Grave #. I also like to thank the various Find A Grave#,Ancestry, and Rootsweb members for their help.I sometimes forget where I get my information, and sometimes I am unable to contact members.

Balliet Family
Chris, I tried to send you an email but it didn't go through so I will leave this here. I believe you have Josiah Balliet and this is on his daughter Minnie.


Mr. J. T. Engle and Miss Minnie Balliet were married Sunday evening at the home of the brides parents, Rev. Taylor officiating.
Mr. Engle is one of our popular merchants, and is well and favorably known. Miss Balliet is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Josiah Balliet, and is an esteemable young lady.
The wedding was a quiet one as only the near relatives and friends being present.
Mr. and Mrs. Engle have gone to housekeeping in the Tressler property in the south part of town. (Hunnewell, MO)
The Graphic extends congratulations.
dated Dec. 10, 1899

Balliet Information
Hi Chris,

I am not sure which Balliet I sent information for. I am going through a stack of old obits and once I type them (because they have several to a page). I keep on moving. If they were separate it would be easier to scan and send but unfortunately I can't. Very sorry, if you know who I sent to you and if I go back through them I will see if I can find it.

RE: Keep up the good work
Thank you and you too. Find a Grave is much more than the web site. I also work with the local Veterans Association and make sure that military headstones are replaced when they are on longer legible. That would include having headstones issued that we deserved by the vets. I also spend countless hours in the cemeteries probing and uncovering many lost stones. Years ago footers were not used and those stones have sunk. Some of them, several inches even a foot or more. I enjoy this. Unfortunately, work and recreation has been taking its toll lately and I have been a slacker! Need to change that soon....

I'm afraid I don't know how they died, but I will check my sources and see if I can find out.
