Samuel Ellis Descendants
Hi Karen,

I noticed your flowers on Mary Belle Stockwell Kerlin and wondered if you were related to her? Belle is the grand daughter of Samuel and Jane Todd Ellis buried in Coffey Cemetery, Daviess, Missouri. I am looking for descendants with information on that couple, or do you know who may know. Since Belle's mother, Amanda Stockwell was the daughter of Samuel and Jane Ellis, and she cared for Jane Ellis before her death, I am searching for the person(s) that would have received any family tree information or photos that may have been passed down. Please contact me through
Vickie Dodd

PS I am a descendant through Amanda Ellis Stockwell's brother, Edward L. Ellis.

Elijah Moore (1784-1859)
Karen, once upon a time we were in contact about the Moore family. I ran across some of your memorials and thought I should say hi.

My research has found probate records for the estate of Elijah and I continue to try to learn further about my Moore line. I do not come up with much else on Elijah.

If you'd like to further communicate, I am at your service.

Probable Error
I think there is probably an error on a memorial that you maintain although it was created by someone else.

The memorial in question is #18234608
Martha E Hayen Lee

Martha is shown married to Leonard T Lee which I believe is probably correct.

She is also shown married to James Marcus Potter
Find a Grave Memorial # 46268954 which I believe is incorrect.

As can be seen from his gravestone he was married to a Martha D. ratherthan a Martha E. James' wife's full name was Martha Dorothy Snead Potter.

Note also that James has both of his wives listed on his gravestone, and does not include a third.

I believe eliminating James' name from her bio is all that is needed to correct the problem.

Hi, I've found an obituary for him, but want to ask you first as some folks on FindAGrave do not believe in posting them.

Anyway the URL is :

if you are interested.

(and includes his military photo!)

Wanda Pembleton Croop
Hi Karen,

I noticed your note with the flowers that you left on Wanda's memorial that you are related to her. I'd be happy to transfer her to you if you'd like.

In the process of researching my CROUP/CROOP family I created memorials for some that are not my family, Wanda being one of them.
