Bio and Links

My name is Vickie BYRUM Schley. I have lived in the central Missouri area all my life. My husband and I are retired and have started doing some traveling. I became interested in Find A Grave when I was looking for my two sisters and my brother's grave sights. They all died as infants, in 1939 and 1941. Headstones were never placed on their graves. In 2012, Michael (my husband) and I started the task of getting headstones placed on all three graves. This year we completed this task with the help of Mom and Dad's trust fund paying for the headstones. We travled to several states. Juddie is in Roswell, New Mexico, Grace is in Morseville, a small village near Stockton, Illinois (north of Rockford, Illinois), and Judy's grave is only a few miles from where I live in Missouri. We also found my grandfathers grave in Stockton, Almon Coe Byrum. There was no headstone on his grave. This year, June 2013, we placed a headstone on his grave.
We enjoy finding old non-listed headstones and linking them to other family members already listed on Find A Grave. Some are broken and buried headstones. It is kind of like bring them back to life.

RE: Mary Summers
Posted the photo of Mary's stone. The stone shows some wear but hopefully readable for you.

RE: Andrew J. Summers
I did get a photo of Andrews memorial today. There was also a Mary Summers close by 1901-1985 are the dates on the stone. She is not listed but you are welcome to if you like. Put in the photo request and I will post. I took a photo already. As I stated the cemetery is large so calling the office number I gave you is the best way to research the whole cemetery for other relatives. They have always been very kind and helpful with me.

RE: Andrew J. Summers
No problem, I will go back as soon as I can. I can scout the general area around Mr and Mrs Summers. It is a large cemetery though so it may be best to call the office 417-833-1111. They are very helpful and could go through all the Summers they have listed. That way no stone is unturned if there is a relative in a different section. I can get photos of whoever they find.

RE: Anna Summers
You are welcome for the photo. I did not know you needed one of her husbands as well. Since it was not a double headstone and there was only one photo request I didn't know. I know the location though and will get a photo for you of his as well.

Memorial # 5330896. Do you have any source or documentation for her maiden name? I'm trying to identify her parents. Thank you

death certs spelled incorrectly
Vickie, thank you for locating several death certs filled or transcribed/listed with incorrectly spelled names. I am very happy to get them referenced in the respective memorials. I appreciate the time you've taken to figure out the correct name and to send the edits.

You have the wrong photo on this memorial. The memorial is for Freeman Lawfer born in 1845. Your photo shows a birth of 1924. Would you please remove the photo? Thanks.
