RE: Bergquist/Shogren
Sally, my apologies - I did not see this message from you, as I only log-in here from time to time and I pick away at the family tree slowly just once in a while.

My paternal grandmother was Anna Bergquist daughter of Betsy Bergquist and Olof. My father was Ray Loftesness, her son. Betsy was married to my grandfather Nels Loftesness, but they divorced and she re-married late in life taking the name of her new husband Floyd Nash. (became Anna Nash).

Not sure if this helps you connect us to the work you're doing or how we may be related, but I do remember my grandmother talking about the Shogrens a lot when I was a child.

I knew August Bergquist my great-uncle as a child, but really none of the rest of that side of the family. I remember meeting some Shogrens at family reunions when I was very young.

RE: Mary H (Fraser) Swadley's name
The Missouri State marriage Records Index 1766-1986 lists Mary's maiden name as FRASER, but you may want to make sure you search every combination of the name in your research. This name has just too many variation spellings.

Mary Swadley
This memorial was transferred to me by the original contributor listed on the memorial. He listed the name as FRASER. I do not know his source. You have asked for an edit that Mary died in 1888 and her headstone reads 1998. Please give the documentation of your date and that she died in Greene County.

Sally would you please re add his headstone photo in Rockhouse Cemetery to Find A Grave# 35994030. I copy & pasted the one you had on the other memorial of his, but it was a duplicate and so I deleted mine and added the picture to the new memorial.. But on the inside of the picture I did give you credit saying you had taken the photo. I hope that was ok, if not I will delete it out. Thank you

Thanks for clarifying Sarah's surname. I have found records with four different spellings for her and didn't know which one was correct. Do you have any information about her ancestors? I have none. Would appreciate your help.

lol - Got a chuckle on your being hooked on genealogy. Do you want to go to "AA" with me? That stands for Ancestry Anonymous and my husband swears he is going to send me there:)

Sally: I saw your flower comment and thought I would let you know I posted a Bratton family plot photo for their exact burial location. I'm trying to add all the plot photos to each Bratton that I can identify. There are 2 rows of Bratton related individuals with other Brattons throughout this area. Their daughter Anna is buried next to them.

I have deleted her memorial as per your request.

I was out to the cemetery today trying to fulfill your request, but the older stones are not legible at all. Most cannot even be seen as ever having carving.

The cemetery itself is in sad shape. You may know that the cemetery is on a little "cut-out" piece of land from another property right on the road. The adjacent property owner told me that an older man used to take care of it, but he died. The property owner has been keeping the grass cut periodically but that is all. Besides the old stones that have almost been buried, there are several others that have fallen. It also appears that several of the footstones are misplaced to the headstones!

I looked at each stone and took a couple of pictures of ones missing on the cemetery site. I can tell you that none of the Hoppers had visible stones.

Photo Request
I checked some time back for I. Edwards &
Nannie Edwards. They are buried in the
Chestnut Grove Baptist Church Cemetery (Old)
and not the cemetery beside the church.
It has took me to now to find the old
cemetery. I downloaded both of the pictures.
I will email them to you also.

I am just not sure of the death date (year). You say it's 1876, and I can't read that with the photo, I'll try to go by in the next few days and do a rubbing and see what I can get from that.

RE: Wilma & Dennis Nelson
Hi Sally
As I was looking for the cemetery I talked to my wife uncle who lives in the area. When I told him who we were looking for he knew him and where he lived. When we left the cemetery I said why we try to find his home place. Called the uncle again and he told us where to go. We went looking and we were going down a road and I said that that looked like Bonnie June husband Jack. I got out and asked him if he knew Jack and he said that was who he was. He didn't recognize me until I told him who I was. We visited a while then we left but I am going back again. They only live about 3 miles from my brorher in law. I have been going down there 17 years and didn't know I was close to them. So THANKS for involving me in this as I probably would never looked them up.

I wish that Herman's marker were more clear. Both have been under about 6" of sod for quite a long time. Robert's faired better, but I think the engraving process was different.
