RE: Sales
No problem. The sun was very bright so the pictures could be better. Shadows on the ones facing west and too bright on the ones facing east.
Anyway, I have a GG grandfather buried there. Will probably go back again in 3 months or so. If you need a better shot of any of these I could try again when ever I go back. Just request on Find a Grave. I always look before I go out to these small Cemeteries. I live in Peoria IL it is about 55 miles to Astoria, so do not get there often but will go again sometime.

RE: Pvt Robert Smith

Just looked and the photograph and it is the right way on my iPad, maybe your computer settings are showing it differently

Gillis photos posted yesterday
yesterday I posted photos for Elizabeth and Bennet Gillis. I checked the cemetery database and apparently they have stones that I did not find when I went yesterday. so oops. I will remove the photos and go again to find the correct location and photo as I now know what style of stone that I am looking for.

Are these family or part of the Gillis "study"?

RE: Joe Derr Hardesty
Good morning Jim, no, did not find any military records on him except the two drafts. As I mentioned:
WWI is Joe Derr Hardesty
WWII is Joe Derr
view of his signature reveals the E in Joe on both is a backward 3 so have to say, it is of the same man.

Also, according to the death certificate, informant his nephew Cleo - he is marked Never Married and NO is checked in the "armed forces" section.

Have yourself a very nice day and catch you another time. Warm Hugs, cousin Dott

RE: Mary D Mater or Mather #81208555
I noticed the number of Mater spellings also...not sure what to make of that.

I know that Thomas Mather comes from "my leg" of the family....
his dad is James Mather #145332721

However I will be looking at this spelling to see if any I cannot find might have used it....I think it possibly comes from a pronunciation and then spelling, but not sure because so far none of the others on that list are mine....except her son LOYAL DIXON MATHER

her dad, Phleming Dixon Johnson #72581617 is in this cemetery.....that helps to know I have the right girl

thanks for your help

Hello Jim - question - on his memorial bio you have indicated he may have served in WWI why is that? Looking forward to your answer! Dott

Hi Jim!

The Office is uncertain if there was ever a stone. Regardless due to son many above ground stones found, this is the area of the burial site. Site location is Section 14, Lot 22, Block S1/2.
I hope this information is helpful.

Weather was wild here today; I did not get a lot of searching done😞 I'll get out again tomorrow!!

Hi Jim! Do you happen to have a last name from Martha or a birth date? I'm afraid Melody might not be able to narrow it down to a Martha death 1972. Let me know !

Hope all is well with you 😊Tina

RE: Albert William Phillips
Hello Jim,
Sorry for the long delay in responding. Yes, very interested in Rosa Gilles. Do you know the circumstances of her death? My mother said she died in childbirth and child died with her. But headstone indicates the child may have lived a few days. Any pictures of Rosa? Thank you.

Dr. William Critchlow
I had Dr. Critchlow as a doctor many years. In fact my sister-in-law was his nurse many years.
He and his wife were wonderful, kind people.
I did not know if you knew them personally. I just wanted to pass this along to you.

During World War II, they lived on the coasts of Oregon and Washington where Dr. Critchlow served in the Army and she took care of their two sons. Following the war and further medical training, the family moved to Sikeston. Here she made a warm and loving home and raised their five children, along with several of their friends. She was also a member of the Eastern Star and was a lifelong member of the Christian Church, being very active in the Sikeston church as long as she was able to attend.

She is survived by: five children, Dr. Jim and Diane Critchlow of Dexter, Joe and Barbara Critchlow of Houston, Texas, Dr. Tom and Tonya Critchlow of Cape Girardeau, Dr. Mike Critchlow of Sikeston, and Debbie Critchlow Yorke and Jay Yorke of Dexter; and 17 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
