Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and living in Florida. I have been working on my ancesteral roots off and on since 1980. I grew up in Blytheville, Arkansas, and had relatives in that general area until the newer generations started scattering all over the place.

Tip of the day: Never, never, never, copy middle names from family trees.

Sorry, the person's name was "Forget Me Not" instead of "Eye Remember You"

Thanks for the info and I changed her year of birth to 1820 on her memorial. Let me know if you don't think this is in the ball park.

Re: 96300155 memorial you created for "Mamie A. Beadles Lawton, Burial Unknown; died May 29, 1963, Oklahoma"; very recently updated adding Delong, new death date & place, bio, & burial location.


Thank you for contacting me regarding your duplicate memorial for Mamie Beadles DeLong. It's always best to follow Find A Grave guidelines and preserve the original Find A Grave memorial created with cemetery information. Would you like me to add your updated bio to the original memorial 71288892?

Best wishes,

RE: RE:Two Somers cemeteries
Hi Jerry, You're welcome...glad to help. Hope they get the cemeteries merged. There is a similar situation with a cemetery in Johnston City, but not sure how to go about getting it merged. If you have any luck maybe you can let me know.

William E Edwards
I have linked William to his parents. I think we have talked before about some Edwards and you mentioned two different Somers Cemeteries. I am still wondering about that, as Somers Church cemetery is the one I have been to. I have noticed that Lawrence Karnes is listed in both Somers Cemetery & Somers Church Cemetery, but someone else has photographed his marker at Somers Church, and has listed James & Emily Edwards, as well. As I looked at Williams death record, I notice it just says "Somers", but he is at Somers Church. I also noticed that Somers Church Cemetery is listed as Johnston City...It is about 15 miles East of Johnston City. Somers Church Rd is the last road in Williamson County in this area. If you look at the map for Liberty Cemetery- N. America Rd-Galatia (Saline County), you will see Somers Church Rd.
I am not saying there are not two "Somers" Cemeteries, just trying to figure it out.

RE: John Imboden
Hi Jerry,
Thanks for getting back to me on the names of John's wife and mother. I have noticed many errors in the Illinois death index, but it gives a good starting point for family connections. I appreciate your help and I am almost always running behind in answering my messages and edits, so not to worry about the time of your response.

John Imboden
Hi Jerry,
Thank you for the links to his parents. I have made the connections and given you credit for the information, but I am concerned as his death record lists his mother's name as Margaret, not Sarah. Any info on this would be appreciated.

RE: Cook
Thank you for the information about the connections you have been able to make. I became very interested in Find A Grave when I found my GG grandparents. They had been presumed to be in the Keysville Cemetery but they were found in a family plot with stone that you could still read.
Good luck searching.
