Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a hobby and passion of mine. I have always had an interest in it, having learned so much from those relatives who are no longer with us. My memorials are mainly family and friends. I am on Find A Grave to memorialize them and connect with relatives. I am not on this site to collect memorials.

In addition, I have memorials in Montevallo Cemetery in Vernon County, Missouri. I canvased and photographed this out-of-the-way cemetery for the sole purpose of documenting and preserving in hope of their families finding them. If you are related to anyone I have added and would like to manage their memorial, please let me know.

The State of Missouri have their 1910 - 1964 death certificate collection on-line for free, at On some memorials I have made reference to a certificate number, for more information.

RE: Peter Clyde
Hi Naomi -

I found the link to Peter through his son William Clyde (and I have put together a tree online). Sounds like you already figured that out. I've been working for awhile now on finding out which NYC-area Clydes are related to mine. So I end up researching every one I encounter. Not sure if I'm related to William and your family. No evidence yet. Thanks for accepting the edits. All the best.

- Greg

Family grave sites
I am a fellow Find a Grave member (#47580682) and genealogist. I noticed you are documenting Green Acres Memorial Gardens cemetery. All of my family are buried there. The last names are... Wendling..Potts..Phipps..and Tarvin. I was in the process of doing the photos and write ups when I noticed your work. Would you be willing to transfer those family members to me so they can be documented and bios written? Thank you for all the work you are is so important and appreciated.

Kristi, This same cemetery is where my gr grandfather Sanford William White is buried. I notice that there is no headstone for this baby. Sanford's had sunk and knowing where it should have been, we felt around the spot with a knife and found it. When we found the corners, we dug around them and were able to clear it off. The cemetery raised it later. Is this something that you looked for? Does the cemetery book show that there was at one time a headstone?

RE: Fred Ferguson year of birth on stone
April 30 1879 is what is on his death registration from 1940 although I know the grave stone states 1877. His marriage certificate has no specific date.Just his age at the time of marriage.

Well yes and no. He is the 1c2R of my aunt Kathleen Schubach who married Frank Fowles III

RE: Lydia Ritter Tremary # 46357492
Lydia was my 2nd great father's sister. After the illness and death of my 2nd great grandmother, his family took care of the children. My great grandfather was the youngest of the children and while the whole family helped with all the children Lydia and her sister, Lucy (Lucinda) did the most caring for the two youngest. When the war broke out, Lydia and Lucy were the main caregivers for the children.
