Ha....I was thinking of the wrong Franklin. Either way the Franklin who is her Uncle was my cousin not my Great Grandfather's brother, probably actually his nephew or something. Anyway still stands that I am looking for any photo's or family info that can be passed along. Thanks.

RE: Franklin Fishback
Thanks for getting back to me! I know people aren't on here as often as some. lol I am a Fishback as well. Franklin was my Great Grandfather Henry's brother. I am just trying to find people who are related. Seeing if they have any pictures, or useful info, memories of the Fishbacks. All my family was passed by the time I was born.

When you took pictures of Joseph M.. Ivie and Alice Stewart, did you also take a picture of James Ivie next to them? Born and died the same year.

RE: Cora Kellogg
You're welcome. Also, I added the marker for James Kellogg's which was next to her. The monument marker that is posted on his memorial is nowhere near the plots. I will have to see if I can find it and see if their names are on it.

Daniel Driver's wife Cassie
Hi I am relation to the May family of Macon County Missouri through Ephraim May. I found this Cassie May buried in Oakwood Cemetery ---no birth or death dates--no husband listed. I knew that Daniel Driver had married a Cassie Robertson as his second wife after Thirza May Ford Driver had died.
Do you know anything about this Cassie Robertson Driver, did she then marry a May and is this by any chance her buried in this cemetery? I didn't know anyone to ask about this woman. I hope that you can help me with an answer. Also looking for the burial place of my third great grandfather Ephraim May who died in Macon County Missouri in 1882. Thanks for your help.

I would be very interested in the Source used in the Biography of William Harvey Dunstan. It has been very helpful!

Amos and son Joseph Bennett
Hello Blytha, I was given your name by another friend on Find A Grave, named Betty Vander Vos. She said that you might have info on Amos Bennett. I have been searching off and on for burial and family info for Joseph W. "Joe" Bennett b. around 1867 in Missouri. I have no blood connection to him, however her is the connection, When Joe Bennett died his widow then married my great grandfather; Chauncey Gramlich. I have limited ways of searching for info as I am not a member of, I get most my info from Family Search

RE: John Mikel
Glad to do it. I know you cannot read John's marker. I will try to retake it with better lighting the next time I am in the cemetery. I was able to run my fingers over the letters of his name and it is his stone. Have a nice day,

RE: William Courtright
Mrs. Ellis: I have been able to contact the Historical Society regarding Myers. The Society will not open again until the summer, but I was able to gather a little information. Seems the Courtright family had graves there in the oldest section. That is much more information that we had! Thank you for all you do and for the maps and pictures...Robert and I will be heading there soon! Jean

James Fletcher
Thank you for all the work you have done for my family, the Fletchers of Kirksville/Adair. I am a direct descendant of the Revolutionary War solider, James Fletcher. You were questioning James' wives. According to my family records he was only married to my 5x Great Grandmother Mary Smoot. Whose grave we have not found. We believe she might be buried on the Locke Cemetery in Macon. Which was her son's (my 4x Great Grandfather) farm (Barton Fletcher). Barton married into the Locke family. And, is buried in that cemetery.

William L. Fletcher was James's grandson and Barton's son. He was one of the "Old Settlers" of Kirksville. Along with James. He is buried in Bear Creek with his two wives. One being my 3x Great Grandmother Emily Fletcher (Phipps).

Your local chapter of DAR went out to James' grave last Memorial Day. I was suppose to be there. But, could not make it. I hope to visit Kirksville for my first time soon.

Thank you for all your work!

Ada Dell Ellis Flynn
Hi Blytha,

I found you as I was researching my paternal grandmother's family. My grandmother was Lorena Flynn Moorhead (married to Arthur John Moorhead 1909-2003) and Ada Flynn (aka Granny Flynn) was my great-grandmother. Lorena and Arthur had 2 children, Mary Jane Moorhead Schreiber (1935-2014) and Arthur Jay Moorhead (1940-present) who is my father.

I was looking in particular for information about Nella (Nellie) June Flynn, my great-aunt that I never knew anything about. I found her death record today and found out she had been married. Your information was able to flesh out a little more of her life. For that I am thankful!

I hope you have a wonderful 2016!

William Courtright
Mrs. Ellis... I am looking for the grave of William Courtright. He died ~1875...was living in Schuyler County. Three of his daughters(married) are buried in the cemetery. Can you tell me if all of the graves have been listed for Myers? It seems appropriate that he would be buried there. His last census showed he lived in Prairie Township with his family. He is my husband's great-great grandfather. We have tracked him to Missouri from West VA and know he died in Missouri...Thank you in advance for your help and answers.

Farm Girl from Mo.
Sorry about another small mistake.
Sorry but I guess I must have a lot on my mind and I was not paying attention to details when leaving you messages. I mistakenly stated that Maud B. (Bowen) Crawford named her son Donal/Donald after her brother Donald but I later realized that Maud did not have a brother named Donald so she would not have named her son after him.

Her obit does mention her three sons, Francis, Donald & Murl Crawford that survived her and that she had one daughter, two brothers and two sisters who preceded her in death. It is only a transcribed copy of her obit. so I cannot say for certain that their names are spelled correctly.

In my previous message I mistakenly put that Nora I. (Bowen Salyer died in 1946 when it should have been 1945. Sorry for my typing error.
