Bio and Links
Born October 28, 1954 at Samaritan Hospital in Macon Mo. (Family living in Bevier,MO.)

Father: William Robert (Willie) Cross
Mother: Nellie Margaret Dawson

Including myself, William & Nellie had 7 children (5 boys, 2 girls)

Myself: Lived in Bevier, Mo. since birth.
Education: 1-8 Bevier C-4
High School: Bevier High School 4 yrs.
NMSU (name changed later to Truman
State - 2 yrs.
Occupation: Since 1973 with Burlington Northern R.R. which merged with Santa Fe R.R. to form BNSF Railway

One thing that has really struck me when I started checking the family tree is how so many different individuals down through the years from so many parts of the country and from other countries can meet, marry, have children and end up with one single individual.

Any photos i may post here at Find A Grave, I consider them to be available for anyone to use in what manner they wish (to copy, download, or use on their memorial pages, personal family trees,to share, etc.)

The only thing I ask is that it not be for profit but rather for helping each other in your search for family.

I would be glad to transfer management of any memorials I have posted if anyone has a relationship or a closer relationship than what I have, just ask.

date of birth of Lydia Cross
My date calculator says 12 Dec 1865 for the date of birth based on the 28 y 4 m 28 d on the headstone. Do you know where the 1866 date came from?
Thanks Carol Mackenzie, Montana

Kinsey B. Dawson
Here is what I found out. Kinsey was buried first and Lucille Louise Hess was cremated and her ashes were buried on top. I am told that often times relatives request this. Could this Lucille Hess be Kinsey's mother? Do you want the picture of the grave marker. There is no stone for either one...just a marker for Lucille.

Lucille Louise Hess was born in 1917 died at age 84 in 2001.

Kinsey B. Dawson
Yes, sir!! She is listed on the Oak Hill Cemetery's burial list. Block 178 Space SG23. We found Block 178, Space SG23 with someone else's marker there so need to find out what is up with that. Hopefully, it is an error on the location listing.

Kinsey Dawson
There has been an interesting development in which there will need to be some further investigating. I need to contact the overseers of this cemetery because (1) either they have the wrong plot number assigned to Kinsey, or (2) they have buried someone else in her spot as there is a marker clearly with someone else's name where Kinsey should be. So, thinking there must be some record mistake, I will have to try and get a hold of them to make an inquiry. I have several questions for this cemetery now so it may take a few days before I get this resolved. No one answered when I called last time (middle of the day, too).

Robert Scott Bevier, Col.
Yes, we are related to Robert Scott Bevier, but very distantly
My husband is Richard C. Bevier, a descendant of Louis Bevier, the first Bevier immigrant. Louis came to American and settled in New York state. There is a stone house, Bevier Eltling house, on the historic Huguenot Street in New Paltz, NY that was built by Louis. The family has a website with all the information on this family, You can find information on Robert Scott Bevier, Col. there. He had no children. He was certainly an interesting and accomplished man.
My husband and I grew up in Springfield, Missouri, and we have been to Bevier, Missouri, several times. and have studied it's history.
We have a copy of the book that Robert Scott Bevier wrote, "The History of the First and Second Missouri Confederate Brigades." It is very=
interesting and very well written. We got the copy from Amazon.
If I can be of more help, just let me know.

Annie Wooten in Navajo (OK)
Hi Norman,
I walked the cemetery this afternoon and didn't find a stone. But on further research I discovered that there are two memorial pages for Annie Wooten. She was buried under her final name "Annie Evans Glasscock" in the Navajo Cemetery. There is already a photo of her stone on that memorial page along with a printed obituary. That page is : . I hope this helps out
