Seely in Wheeling Cemetery
Hi, I took pictures of the gravestones of Lester and Carrie Seely in Wheeling Cemetery yesterday for you. These 2 gravestone are next to each other. I see that you have Elizabeth Seely linked to Lester as his wife. Is it possible that Elizabeth might be their daughter instead? I did not see a stone for Elizabeth nearby these 2, sorry.

RE: thanks for your help!
I was disappointed in the dark shading on the markers but that rose-colored stone seems to retain that more than other colors. I don't know why. Otherwise, I'm glad I could help. It had been cold here and we finally got a little break from the weather man so I took what I could.

Dikes in Merwin Cemetery
I noticed you requested photos from Merwin Cemetery.
I'm researching some Hopkins who are buried there. I ran across a detailed history of the Dikes in a 1976 newspaper article that can be read on-line at

Let me know if you have trouble getting to the article.
Do you have any Hopkins or Trescotts in your tree?

RE: Martha Harvey Jones

How kind of you to get in touch. I've never known much about the Jones family (until recently) beyond my great great grandmother, Martha Jane Harvey Jones. I did meet, thought, another Jones distant relative who has given me some information about his father and grandfather. However I would love to have copies of the documents you have about Jones family members if you don't mind sending them. My email is .

I do have the original copy of Richard's "Certificate of Service" from serving in the Nebraska Volunteers during the Civil War (apparently protecting wagons going west through Nebraska). This was dated in 1897, so was probably obtained during his declining years. He died in 1903, after a lengthy hospitalization. I also have a copy of "Veterans Disability" dated 1890 that I got online. I will be happy to send you a copy of the "Certificate of Service", which my grandmother (Richard's granddaughter) gave me. I also have some handwritten notes from Richard's son Edward Jones, and a typed transcription of the faded document, if interested. Uncle Ed, unfortunately, wasn't too good with dates, and his records contain much conflicting information, but it's all we have.

My great great grandmother Martha Jane Harvey Jones (family called her "Marthie", thus the name on her grave marker) was living when my mother (who is 85) was very young, dying when she was five. She has a vague memory of her and I have a couple of not-very-good snapshots of her, but none of Richard.

As to the sons of Richard and Martha, John and William, both must have died young. Neithers' death date is recorded in the notes Uncle Ed Jones made, so obviously before his knowledge of them. And my great grandmother never spoke of either of them, however my grandmother Alice always put flowers on the "Potter's Field" part of Armstrong Cemetery where she had been told Richard, William and John were buried (she only knew the general area, not exact). Grandma Alice was raised for several years by "Grandma Jones", as she called Martha Jane - while her father was a traveling musician and her mother was working in St. Joseph, so she spoke often and fondly of her.

I was just taking a picture of a ceramic bean pot of Grandma Jones' yesterday, and could send you a copy of that. My mom has the wedding ring that Richard gave Martha. And that's just about all that we have of theirs.

Richard and Martha's son Ed Jones lived in Rushville, MO - dying of Lou Gherig's disease in 1950, as I recall, and my grandparents later acquired his home and that's where I visited my grandparents during my childhood and young adulthood. Grandma Alice died in 1999. I know one of my Harvey cousins from Grandma Jones' family; he was one of my childhood ministers and I stilil see him. His grandfather and my great grandmother were close.

It was my Grandma Alice who got me actively interested in genealogy more than 50 years ago, and she would have been delighted to have been in touch with some Jones cousins - but some of that just wasn't possible before the Internet.

Richard Burraston
I found 3 more Burraston's buried next to Richard and created memorials so I could upload their info. If they are relatives and you would like these transferred to you I would be happy to do so.

I am using your picture of the Ewell family for the cemetery picture since basically that is all the tombstones there. Great picture!
