Find a Grave photos
I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give me your first and last name for the captions?

Christopher Columbus "Lum" Williams
Memorial # 22132912. Honey & Bear, I have family related to Columbus Williams and I know that you have taken your information for him from his death certificate which was provided by his youngest daughter. Unfortunately the information on where he was born and who his parents were is not correct. You have listed him born in Illinois, he was born in Missouri, and his parents were Jesse E. Williams and Delilah (Cates) Williams, his 1st wife. You have his children listed correctly along with his place of death. I don't know why his married daughter Grace Willis provided the incorrect information on her father, Lum, on his death cert but it was actually her grandparents information that is incorrect relating to her father, Lum.

I don't know if you will ever receive this message as you don't list any contact information, but at least if anyone else is searching they will find this.

Andrew Jackson Wright
Hello. I wrote back in 2012 when I first found AJ. After going back to your site at

Find A Grave Memorial# 80134379 Record added: Nov 09, 2011 and seeing the picture of the pastors posted, I'm wondering if we're looking at the same person.

Based on the d/c, AJ was buried in Bernie, but it does not indicate the specific cemetery. Another 'oddity' is that his profession is unreadable, but does not appear to be as a pastor or other type of cleric.

I do know that much information for the AJ Wright is in error. If it's the same one, he was the son of Clayton Wright and Anna Snider and was born in Cocke County, TN. The date of his birth is a few months in error based on a family Bible record, but the date of death appears to be the same. Oddly enough, the d/c # is exactly the same.

I'm wondering if you can provided any information on the Andrew Jackson Wright you have on your site. Any information is appreciated.

I have the rest of AJ's family at and would love to add AJ to it, just unsure.

If you are related, please let me know - I'm always looking for more Wright family descendants.

Just saw your memorial for AJ Wright
Birth: 1850, Tennessee
Death: 1923, Wayne County, Missouri

Burial: Montgomery Chapel Cemetery
Silva, Wayne County. Missouri

Created by: Sweetpea; Record added: Nov 09, 2011; Find A Grave Memorial# 80134379

I believe I know this person. Not personally, mind you, but his father - if this is the correct AJ Wright - was Clayton Wright and mother, Anna Snider, who died in 1851. Clayton Wright was brother to my GGM and I've done an enormous amount of research on this family.

Please contact me and let me know if this is your AJW - I have information on his ancestors that might be of some help.

Flanders Callaway Barnes
I am trying to confirm that Flanders Callaway Barnes and his wife Obedience Worsham Grigg Barnes are buried at New Providence Methodist Church Cemetery at Bellflower, Montgomery County, Missouri. They lived their last years in Montgomery County, and one source I just found specifically says he was buried at New Providence Methodist Church Cemetery.
I see you have taken photos there, and wonder if you have any resources that might help me with my task.
