Just to let you know, I have added the footstones for Mary and William J. to their entries. I will have to return to Walnut Ridge Cem. in the future to take the family surname headstone, unless someone else beats me to it. I'm getting old and got distracted.

RE: Harvey Family
Dear Penny: Thank you! I have contacted people that have done 200,000 graves and won't give them up even though they are not related. If I were going to give advice to you as someone who has done an extensive, high quality, book, put at least one copy with the LDS Family History Center in Salt Lake. I know everything is computer now, but they will film it and make it available to future generations. Who knows where and findagrave will be in 100 years. I have read 100+ old books from them. I am now doing my husbands line and only plan about 6 copies for family, one copy for a state library, 1 copy for LDS FHC and then will put it all on What is missing about is the personalization of a book with all the old family stores. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Sharon Nowery

Memorial #140239603
Hi, Penny!

You created the memorial #140239603, labeled "Olm Hill Ferguson," which is actually "Ann Hill Ferguson," my 2nd great grandmother. I'm curious if you can tell me where she is located in the cemetery? Also, is her husband, John Ferguson, buried next to her or nearby?

Thank you so much for all of your work!

RE: Hannah Christian
Penny thanks for responding. Yes please make transfer. Hannah Martin was my Great Aunt, one of thirteen children. I've located Hannah finally with some family paperwork ( married names ) still searching for her sister Mollie Martin Shirley. I'm new to F.A.G. its a perfect site to find family final resting places.
Thanks again, Robert Martin.

RE: Joseph William Hines
Hi Penny,
Thanks for the transfer. I put a link on each memorial, to the other. Should work.

Thanks again,

Than you so much for doing this.

I greatly appreciate the work that you and others do on Find A Grave. I have been able to find family members that I thought I would never find.

Thank You!

Orbin Wrinker Hayse
Hi Penny,
Thank you very much for the transfer of Orbin's memorial. Like you, I don't know how he got his name. His brother, Quincy, married Zeura Self, who also had a brother by the name of Orbin. I have always wondered about his name, too. It must have been a popular name back then. :-)

I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to add information to Orbin's memorial. You are tops!

K. Stewart
Harriett Stewart Engle
Hi Penny,

On Find A Grave Memorial# 128119085, for Harriett Engle Stewart, I need to submit a few corrections.

James Stewart and Mary Stewart, listed on the stone together, were man and wife. Mary's maiden name was Mary Catherine Walden.

Harriett Engle, also listed with James and Mary on the same stone, was James' sister. She was married to Henry Engle, thus her correct name should be Harriett Stewart Engle, not Harriett Engle Stewart. I don't know why Henry isn't buried there, as I don't know any more about their marriage, but I can surmise that perhaps he died elsewhere and she went to live with her brother and sister-in-law and was thus unable to be buried beside Henry.

If you could correct the name at the top of Harriett's memorial, I would be most appreciative.

With best regards,

Karen Stewart
(Harriett was my Half 2nd Great Aunt)

RE: Elizabeth Higginson Conover
Hi Penny, Wayne went out and found this . He also took a photo of Levi and Phoebe Conover, an unknown Conover, ossivky their child on same memorial, very hard to read. There is also a Higgison plot with Ledru, Mary Ellen and William J. I do not see memorials for them. If you would make those and request so we see them , I can add the photos tomorrow . Hope this helps .
Best Wishes, Wayne and Connie

Henry M. Smith and Chantal Barnes
Henry Milton Smith married Mary Grable in 1909. Was he married before that? The reason for asking is that I found a marriage license for a Henry M. Smith marriage to Chantal Barnes 5 Jul 1906 in Macon, Mo. Chantal was the daughter of William H. Barnes and Ida Rosilla (Cooley) Barnes. She had a brother Harly Merle Barnes. Chantal married again to a Peter Hans 27 Nov 1917 in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Myron Edwards and Buela Edwards
On Find A Grave Memorial# 77409904 and 77409876, you have listed these two as husband and wife - that does not seem possible since Myron's dates are 1892-1905 and Buela's dates are 1888-1892. I suspect that they were brother and sister, but cannot find a birth record for Buela.
I have also found other records that indicate Myron's death in the census records.
What do you think?

Thank you for your diligence to create these records for those of us doing research.

Thank you Penny, for your quick edit for Zelpha PEEK Harrington Cooley !!

I believe there is a duplicate entry for Alice Harrington Cooley linked to her husband (Samuel American HARRINGTON): Zelpha Alice Harrington Find A Grave # 127016176 entered by Elizabeth Prince.

Zelpha Alice PEEK married Samuel American HARRINGTON 20 September 1908 in Macon, Missouri. They were the parents of eight children, "In later years she married Sidney COOLEY."

Perhaps there is a way to merge the information ??
