|Bio and Links|
"It wonders me," heard in a lecture from a professor at Monmouth College (IL).|
Learning and sharing stories is what I find facinating... death and survival stories accorded by Native Indians, ancestors present at the same engagements of Union and Confederate relatives during the Civil War; ones whom made a difference in the lives of others; and in particular, locations where paths crossed (of family ancestors, well before my wife and I personally met by over one hundred years!
A striking story of a relative whom gifted a black child as a wedding present to their daughter can be read by reading the story of Ann Melinda "Black Ann" Lewis Hilliard.
A link to my ancestral past:
Oh let me not forgotten lie,
Lest you forget that you must die;
For Death's a debt to nature due,
Which I have paid and so must you.
Esther (Reed) Edgerton [1766-1792]
Remember those old puzzles that sat in Grandma's closet that were used and abused by all of your older cousins and siblings — only getting dragged out again when the old folks started talking genealogy and there was nothing else for us kids to do?
Inevitably, there was a missing piece or pieces where some of the picture is torn away. The family line is reported to be true, but the participants arn't around to tell us if the pieces fit better somewhere else!
Yet those puzzles can still be assembled. There might be a few holes here and there, but the frame is together and there is a connection from side to side and top to bottom. The picture is not as clear as we might like to see it if we wanted a print to frame and put on the wall, but you can still tell that it's a lion, or kitten, or pig, or whatever sort of puzzle you intended to put together. (Let's not get started on knowing when the pieces from the pig puzzle get mixed in with the lion puzzle – that's a whole story unto itself.). Let's all help to get the picture right again!
Have a great day!

Would you be so kind to delete the Etta Hopkins memorial please? She is buried in this cemetery under her married name Minnick; I can sure transfer the Minnick memorial to you.
Thanks so much.

According to the 1910 US Census (Missouri) Emery was not an only child. He had a sister, Fannie, born in 1906 and a brother, Fred, born in 1909. Would you please correct this when you get a chance? Thanks!
