Bio and Links
First of all, thanks to all the wonderful find-a-grave contributors that have helped me "learn the ropes", for the transfers, and the hard work in keeping the many memorials accurate and respected.

All of the memorials I manage at this point are family profiles and a few very special friends. I have been doing the Edwards/Messer family research for 33 years and love digging through the info! That of course includes several other surnames such as Elmore, Imboden, McKay, Elliott, Baker, Booe, Dodson, Williams, Scott, and the list goes on. Many of these family members and ancestors are buried at Oak Hill Cemetery and surrounding areas of Galena, Kansas. On one particular line I have linked back 5 generations on findagrave. With the exception of the Bakers and Imbodens, most are buried in the Galena/Joplin area.

My motive is not to have many memorials, but to keep accurate profiles of our family and respect their memory. If you see that we are related or want more info regarding any of these memorials, I would love to share and trade family history with anyone interested.

If you see a duplicate that I have added, please let me know as I may not have seen it. Send an edit and SAC, and I will delete the duplicate. (as per find-a-grave guidelines) I am happy to transfer, to family, any record, especially if I'm not related. One exception...I reserve the right to keep any memorial that is my direct family that I have added or manage.
Bottom-line, family should be together if those profiles are being cared for.

I believe in adhering to the findagrave "family first" policy.

Dear Pam: I have your VIRGINIA AND PHILLIP, and ELIZABETH and the marriages and JOHN in my database, but I don't seem to have anything about the WILLIAMS. Was WILLIAM B. in 1629 or came over in 1629? What about the ones from 1575-1688? Could you please expand on that. I have a lot of WILLIAMS in my database, but I don't seem to have that one. I have a WILLIAM B. 1575-1598, and a lot of other ones, also one b.1688-1739. Are they part of your family?

Hoping to hear from you again.

RE: Anna Scott
Husband's family. Anna's father is Peter W Scott, husband's great grandfather is Richard B J Scott, his older brother. I may have a photo also of Peter. No names were on the back of most, but I do have a photo of Anna, Leona, Addie that were labeled. Email me and I'll email you the photos.

I read your notes after giving you Martha's site, so you will need to make some corrections. I got Matt Spivey from Martha's MO Death Certificate which you can view online through our MO Secretary of States "Missouri Digital Heritage." This is a wonderful and FREE resource if you haven't used it. It may not be right, but it is what their son reported.

I passed Martha's site to you, but you will need to request Willis from contributor JD Day. Best wishes.

what was her name and where did she come from and what were her parents names? maybe we're related. We may come from a totally different family, but who knows. Does she happen to descend from a Thomas Lucas b.1630 Plymouth, Mass.

You were fortunate to have such a wonderful teacher! I've transferred her memorial in case you have anything further to add.
