Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Morgan County, Mo, down the road from Hopewell Cemetery. From the days of my first memory, my grandparents and parents took me to visit the little grave yards in Morgan county. I played among the stones and listened to the remembrances of the family who lay beneath, whose souls soared above. As my parents said, "Now is the time to honor their memories, lest we should neglect to repeat who they were and how much they changed their little corner of the world." As a pebble drops and changes it's place, it also creates it's own space and so have the pioneers who carved out a place and changed the world forever." Morgan County is full of people whose ancestors migrated from the East and became one with the land. They were great pioneers whose ancestors and they themselves fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Mexican War, the Indian Wars,the War for Texas Independence, the Civil War on both sides and World Wars l and ll. My goal is to honor as many as I can.

I have lived all over the US and traveled abroad. I have five children,ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

I am a DAR member, Museum Guild member, Bay Area Genealogical Society member, Morgan County Museum Society member,
Cole County Historical Society member and I do cemetery restoration. I also transcribe and take pictures of cemeteries. I am working on a book for Family History.

I have more than one copy of all the pictures I have posted so if I can help anyone by sending them a picture, please let me know? I also have death certificates on many and family information.
I love helping other researchers and posters but if you use my info or pictures from my posts please cite me as the source. It causes researchers to hit blank walls when they don't have original sources and it is also considered plagerism and is an ethics issue. Thank you so much.
I want to add to my bio after all these years a great big thank you to all the researchers and
find a grave volunteers who have helped me and continue to add to the site and the memory of so many in cemeteries all over the US. You are remarkable and I appreciate every one of you.
Don’t violate copyright.
This may be the most difficult one to adhere to. You must be careful where you take information from, and how you use it. While facts (such as dates and places of birth, marriage, and death) are not copyrightable, the words used to convey that information are. Do not directly copy text but use your own words. Even more important are images. Remember that copyright currently lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator. All those family photographs in your possession? Copyright belongs to the person who took the photograph, and to his/her heirs. The key date at the moment is 1944. By Michael J. Leclerc (Prof. genealogist)

John Palmer
Bonnie, thank you for your additions to John Palmer's biography. When I went to add the first one, I was upset to see that Kim Reynolds had went through a FindAGrave administrator to get her name linked as credit. I have no way of removing that link myself and it's absolutely unfair that any corrections or additions have her name permanently there as if she wrote it. Even the info that I had already placed in the biography section would automatically be attributed to her! I cannot believe FindAGrave thought that was okay. It leaves me wondering how many others this has happened to.

RE: Newton Enloe
Hi Bonnie,

Newton Enloe Jr. is the son of Newton Thomas Enloe and Winnie Herrick. Newton and Winnie were married in Jefferson City, Missouri on December 29, 1897. Newton Jr. was born on September 3, 1898. He was named Emory at the time for Winnie's father. Newton Senior and Winnie Herrick divorced sometime before 1906. Newton Senior then married Isabel Mansfield. I lose track of Winnie in 1908. In her father's obit she is listed as married to R F Hume in Canon City, Colorado. Winnie is my 1st cousin 2 times removed.

In the 2nd sentence of the obituary you posted on Newton Junior's find a grave page you will see Winnie mentioned as Newton Jr.'s mother. Below is a link to Newton Senior's Butte County Biography which also shows Newton Junior is Winnie's son.

RE: John 26 AUG 2017
Hi, Bonnie With regard to the message you posted yesterday on my message board: before I make a more detailed response, I wondered if you could tell me, on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most confident, how confident you are that Darlene did not in fact respond to the message I sent to her? If she sent a response to me and I deleted it, how would you know? If she contacted me by email to take up the matter, how would you know? I also wondered if you could not think of any other possible explanation why someone would have failed to respond (if indeed she did not respond) to a message, other than your conclusion - stated as though it were established fact - that the individual was trying to be nice? Thank you very much - John
