Rebecca is my 2 GG Grandmother and my husband and I spent hours looking for her headstone. It is no longer standing and has been removed. I found some thrown in a pile near the back fence. I assume it has been gone a long time. I am going to visit some funeral homes and see if I can find a plot map and maybe find the location. I will get back to when I have any more information.

Hello, I have a question regarding the photo you posted on Jennie Kemp's memorial. Is Jennie the lady holding the baby? and if so, who is the baby? Jennie was my grandmother's (Esther Baird) sister and I remember visiting her a few days as a child.

RE: Julio Julian
You're very welcome, I really enjoyed photographing this stone, since it was so beautiful. And so big....funny story, I actually had to go to the next row and lean over another stone to get all of the Julian stone in the photo, lol. That section of that cemetery is really old, so a lot of the stones are close together and face every direction with no rhyme or reason. Take care, and good luck in all your genealogy ventures! :)

I spent a couple of days at this cemetery two years ago and walked it very carefully. I did not see the stone for Margaret. The cemetery is in bad shape on many levels. It is mown a couple of times a year but there is no general upkeep of the stones. Over the years, the soft stones have weathered badly, may to the point of being unreadable. Heavy lichen also obscures what is there. Many previously upright stones have toppled and many of those are broken. A very many stones are partially or totally covered by invading grasses and weeds or have sunk into the ground. I suspect some stones have been vandalized or stolen. I have two relatives buried there and both of their stones had tipped over, were broken, eroded and 90% covered with grasses and dirt. I had two cemetery 'readings' of the site so I knew where to look for graves. I don't know of a central list of burials at the cemetery, only the lists of people who walked through the cemetery recording what they found. One of the Methodist churches in nearby Benton has jurisdiction over this now unused cemetery but it seems to be a low priority for them: no money, no volunteers, etc. There used to be a church at the site, a church where many of my relatives were married and worshipped. The church is long gone and I don't really know when that happened. It's possible that a dedicated searcher could use the location of the grave and then begin a dedicated search, probably using probes to see if the stone could be located. The rows that are described in the reading are easy to identify. The hard part is that the position in the rows is not uniform. Some stones are right next to each other and in other rows there are huge gaps between, say position 2 and position 3. You could have a large area to search for a stone. If you do that, you would want to pick a spring day or fall after the rains have started up again. The ground was like cement in August when I was there. Of course, it is probably frozen solid in the middle of the winter, too. Good luck and I am happy to get you any more information that I have. Barry Foster

Jennie, do you have more data on George Parker who is buried in the Mulberry Cemetery near Butler, MO?
I believe he is my Great Great Grandfater, father of Frank PRker, also in Mulberry. Geoge's wife was Perlia, also in Mulberry. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Thomas and Rachel Wilkison
I see what you mean, this is what was listed as parents on the grave registration record, it is not always right, parents listed for Rachel , were her father was Henry Sefton and mother was Sarah ---- , too double check for Thomas parents, I would have to check death records and see what they say who his parents are?, I am going there tomorrow, if i dont forget i will look it up and let you know for sure, Russell

RE: William Billingsly

The index also says the stone is unreadable. Sorry! But I can tell you that he is buried beside
Oliver Billingsly who died 7 Sept 1851.
They could possibly be brothers.
Sorry I couldn't help you.

Blessings, RosiePosie

As soon as the snow is melted I will be looking for the headstone. I hope the obit was of some help and interest to you.

I hope you had a Merry Christmas.

I have not looked for the headstone yet but did located an obit that was published in the Eureka Herald, 02-1893. I will look for a headstone soon.

Smith - At the residence of her daughter. Mrs. Sidney Turner, Madison, Kansas, Wednesday February 22, 1893. Mrs. Hanna B. Smith, aged 78 years and 11 months.

The remains were brought to this city, Friday, February 24 and interred in Greenwood Cemetery.

Shoemaker, Provident Cemetery, WI
Hi Jennie, I went through the cemetery step by step with a 'reading' of the cemetery (list of burials collected by researchers who went through the cemetery and recorded the graves they found) a few years back. I photographed every stone that was at all readable. I did not find a Shoemaker. It is possible that I missed it. The cemetery is in terrible shape on many levels. At the time I was there and for several years prior, there was a community member who mowed the cemetery periodically but he did wide swaths around stones. So many of the upright stones are shrouded in tall grasses. Many of the stones are eroded beyond readability. Many of the upright stones have toppled, several broken. Many of the horizontal stones or the toppled stones have grasses and weeds and soil encroaching over them. My two relatives' stones there were 90% covered by grass and dirt. The only way I found them was by consulting the list made by the readers. I suspect that there has been vandalism at the cemetery and perhaps even theft of the stones. If you were to go to the cemetery, pace off where the reading says Shoemaker is, you might be able to probe and find the stone. It's a crap shoot. I was there in August and the dirt was as hard as a rock. Of course, it is frozen solid in much of the winter! I'm sorry for the bad news. As I said, there would be a chance for a very ardent searcher to have some luck. Barry

Cazwell Tyree 8
