Anthony W. Myers
THANK YOU SO MUCH for piecing together and photographing Anthony Myers's tombstone for me. I can see that it looks like 55y 2m 29d which enables me to calculate a birthdate for my 5th great grandfather. I really appreciate the help!

Pioneer Uptegrove Cemetery
Good morning,

I see that you have photographed cemeteries in & around Pike & Lincoln Co's in MO. I am looking for a cemetery that is between Corso & Louisville called the Pioneer Uptegrove cemetery. Many of the relatives of those buried in Old & New Liberty are there. I have bee twice to look for it around that area but have had not luck. The best instructions I can find are on the attached link:

Would you happen to have any idea where it might be? The uploads on Find A Grave from Mae Damron come directly from me, so she has not been there. Any assistance appreciated! Cynthia

RE: Crows
Hi, yes I'll manage the Crows. Thank you very much. Sorry to say I have not researched the Pritchetts yet. I only know a couple of things. Nancy married a Ripperdan and 3 of their sons located near where I live in California. I've been in touch with one of their descendants who lives in Southern California. Abraham K. Ripperdan Jr. has the largest monument in Acacia Cemetery. Memorial # 17836868.
Is is true that Prickett's Fort in West Virginia was built by some of our Pritchett family? thanks

Tracey Crow
Crow's in Old Ashley
Hi, Susan Pritchett Crow is my 3rd great-grandmother. In 1849 Susan's husband Walter went to California during the gold rush. He came back to Pike County, gathered up sons, in-laws and other men and drove cattle back to California. He died shortly after he reached California. My line is through Walter and Susan's son John B. Crow & Perthania Eastin; their son John B. Crow & Clara Braly (Clara's aunt was married to Alexander Majors of Pony Express fame}. Perthania died about a year after moving to California. John and his brothers founded Crows Landing in California. I wrote a book about our family titled Crow Family History which is available on Amazon. You can see some pages of it on that site. I was just at Old Ashley Cemetery and I saw that stones are being repaired and the cemetery is being taken care of, which I appreciate. It looks so much better than when I first saw it a few years ago. thanks

RE: Morris/Watson
I will enter Eliza Ferry Morris. I'm not sure about the Ada thing. I'll keep looking. Right now I'm going by late 1880s census. I haven't seen an Ada. there is an Ida F, but she's the daughter of John N., not a sister of his. Still working on that generation. Who knows. it's hard to tell that long ago.

RE: Elizabeth Morris
I appreciate it ! If you'd like to enter it, I would not be offended at all. If you don't, I think I would try what you suggested. It doesn't matter to me at all. I live in Texas, and have only been to Elsberry 3 x in my entire life. I have family in Elberry cem, Watts cem (which is abandoned) and the Kemper cem. (also abandoned). I don't anticipate going back up there any time in the near future. Create one if you like, and link it up to her spouse. just let me know. I'll have to get back into ancestry to even see where I was on that.

RE: Elizabeth Morris
Looking at my notes: I was looking for a woman named Elizabeth Ferry Morris 1842-1918. She was the wife of James Morris 1829-1890 (Find A Grave # 83109802). Their children are Charles R 1871-1923, Harry L. 1876-1941, Sarah Ann Morris 1878-1937. I was probably trying to link her up with her husband. He was married before to Clarinda # 42767467. I've slept since then, but seems like I found Clarinda but not Elizabeth Ferry. I was working on Ferrys, a family I am related to thru Elliots and Kempers, and they all lived in Elsberry, MO.

Elizabeth Morris
Could the Elizabeth Morris you have be Elizabeth Ferry Morris, 2nd wife of James Morris ? Most of her family is buried in Lincoln Co. Probably some in that cemetery. Eliza Ferry is the daughter of Charles Ferry 1808 and Arzilla Watts Ferry 1816-1909. She was married to James Morris. His 1st wife was Clarinda Wommack

Thank you for adding my gg grandfather to the find a grave. I already have this photo from my visit to Oakwood.
While there I noticed a stone near it that said ? Monroe. Is there any chance when you go back to the cemetery if you can see if I really did see a large stone or it was my imagination. At the time I did not know the name Monroe fell into the family tree and being in Ohio it is a little hard to jump in the car for confirmation.
Anyways back to Lafe as my grandmother called her grandpa. Martha Wilhite is his granddaughter and when the stone was put in she was still living. She is no longer and the family had plans to meet there at a later date but I don't know if that transpired. I have been vigoriously researching Lafe and found 2 wives & 17 children. I will be happy to answer any questions I can on his family. I do hope some will contact me @

Linville/Woodward Photos
You are such a good person, I appreciate all you are doing!! I am so grateful that you found the stones for the Woodward's that I missed and were so gracious to add the photos to my Edward Daniel Memorial, having told me I could move it to Linville, and then deleting your EDW Memorial. I recognize the names of your family members, I was hoping Woodward would be among them. You have a good method with your photo taking in cemeteries--great job--seems to work out well!!! Getting to visit the courthouse lead you to Mr. Karhoff I expect, he is a wealth of knowledge and can find information that can help folks looking for relatives in the county cemeteries. I have been working on making newer files for him, but just not to the point of finishing--need to because I have added the newer burials which would help folks find the ones not one the books he has. I thought my work would go a little faster, but I have found it took Mr. Wilkerson several years to compile what you probably saw. I want to thank you AGAIN for letting me move EDW to Linville and for adding the photos, then deleting your EDW Memorial--your kindness IS appreciated!!!! PW

Mary Ann Everman Coe
I'm somewhat intrigued with the photo of the tombstone added. It appears the death date in March 8 or 18,1867. age is 37 yr, 10 mo. That will put her birth in May 1830. Is the other Mary Coe buried at Novelty also or a different cemetery?
Thank you, Linda

BOWLING GREEN TIMES Wednesday, July 25, 1928
Bowling Green, Pike County, Missouri


Funeral of Civil War Verteran Was Held At Indian Creek Church

Isaiah Gorrell, a Civil War verteran and pioneer resident of the NewHartford vicinity, passed away at his home Friday morning, following an illness of several months duration.

Isaiah Gorrell was born in Clark County, West Virginia, March 17, 1839, being at the time of his death 89 years, 4 months, and 3 days old. He was a son of Benjamin and Rebecca Davis Gorrell. In early childhood he moved with his parents to Marietta, Ohio, where he resided until early manhood. Then he came to Missouri

When the Civil War broke out he readily volunteered and gave four years of service to the cause of the southern Conferderacy.

He was united in marriage to Miss Tempy Alice Pritchett on January 23,1871. To this union six children were born, Mrs. Alfred Whilhoit of Elreno, Oklahoma: Frank Gorrell of Ashley: Roger Gorrell of Fulton: Mrs. Charley Young of Bowling Green: Fred Gorrell of Oklahoma City: and Miss Pearl Gorrell who resided with her parents.

Mr. Gorrell was a good citizen always taking active part in the best interests for the community in which he lived. He was a good neighbor and friend and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Funeral services were held at Indian Creek church Saturday morning at eleven o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. S. Eames, who preached a consoling and inspiring sermon. The body was laid to rest in the cemetery near the church.

To those who mourn his death we extend our sincere sympathy in their loss.

A large concourse of friends attended the funeral and among those present were: S. B. Weatherford of this city, and Edward Lawrence of Louisville,ex-Confederate soldiers, who served in the same company with Mr. Gorrell

RE: Patterson
Many thanks for your willingness to transfer. All these Pattersons in Dover, and a few in Greenwood, are descendants of Stephen-1 Hamlin. Yes, please also transfer Zachariah and Marcelena's memorials; thanks for offering. I like your idea about creating the private Patterson Cemetery and will follow through. Here's what I know about its location "Buried on his (William L Patterson) farm, nine miles from Louisiana, MO, on the road to Eolia, MO". Others have just said Prairieville Twp, Pike, MO. Does that narrow it down any for you?
Great to connect with you.
Thanks and best regards,
Karl Hamlin

Memorial 104217412 Salmons
Here is more information on the stone you have pictured in the Auburn Cemetery, in case you would like to have it. It is published in "Gone But Not Forgotten" by William L. Douglas, Jr. c1982, Volume III, Auburn Cemetery that says: "Salmons, Willena -Daughter of J.V. & K.A. Salmons Aug 17, 1880 Oct. 27, 1880." That's the only Salmons name recorded in that cemetery.
