|Bio and Links|
|I have been a family history hobbyist for about 40 years, since college days. Interest in, and respect for my ancestors and their accomplishments are what inspire my research. I believe those of us privileged to inherit a good name, and a family legacy of achievement in face of adversity, have an obligation to pass that legacy -- and its positive example -- on to our own descendants. And I believe we do our descendants a personal favor in preserving the names, information, and faces of those who have gone before, so they may have an appreciation of their sturdy roots and become inspired by it.|
Family names I research include: Downen, Valentin, Klope, Moses White, Crocker, Keller (Southern IL); and Branstetter, Gilbert, Hargrove, Crider (Southern MO)

You are very welcome! I usually find great stories/photos for others while looking for something else and try to share them. Glad I could help! Kelly Jane O'Hara, Greer, SC
I have transferred the memorials that you requested. Yes, I am distantly related through the Johnson family.

My apologies in taking so long to get your grandmother's memorial transferred over to you. I have gotten very behind on my Find A Grave business due to illnesses and the job! She's all yours...God bless!
I have her buried at Looney Springs Cemetery. and not in Evergreen in Ava. She passed away in 1952. If this is the same person. I have a lot of family in the Ava area. And most of my family were from Jackson and Randolph Counties.
|Cleta Shirley||RE: Cleta, Thank You|

I transferred the 2 memorials to you. I am not related, I have the same beliefs as you state in your bio and have been working to preserve the history of those in cemeteries in the Ava area where I live.
|Chris Mills||James Downen|
Hi Robert, I transferred James to you. See my emails for my other comments.
|Amanda Trill||Isaiah and Sophia Reeder|
Thank you for posting the photos! That is very cool to see. I am no relation...just happened to photograph the stone one day and then created the memorials. I'd be happy to transfer them to you, if you'd like. Maybe you have info that you can add to their bio?
Just let me know if you'd like me to transfer!
Have a great weekend,
|Ms Martie Martin||RE: Leonard Crider (1800-1862)|
Yes, Spencer is the father of my paternal grandmother, Jennie (Crider) Robinson. Sadly, she died when my father was a baby (1922) and is buried somewhere in Oklahoma (I have searched relentlessly but unable to locate her burial site) where my grandfather had taken his family and moved briefly to find work. Shortly after her death my grandfather moved back to West Plains and remarried. But, back to Spencer; I have found a Spencer Crider (49629948) and although the birth & death dates are exactly the same, I have been told by the contributor monitoring this memorial that he could not be my great-grandfather since he never could have been married to Belle (Winkleblack) who was my great-grandmother, mother to Jennie. I also have information stating Spencer Crider is buried in New Liberty Cemetery in Missouri...? It is all a mystery......
No, I have not seen a photo of Daniel if one even exists. I would like to see one too so PLEASE let me know if you come up with one.
|Amelia Gaylord||RE: Photos of Michael & Permelia|
I would like to see your photo. Both of them. I have a group photo but don't know but a few.
