|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in the history of my ancestors & my husband's ancestors for many years and have visited many of their graves over the years. I enjoy doing research on family members as well as others. It makes me realize how short life really is and how we should leave a positive footprint here. But most of all, how important it is to be prepared to pass from this life in a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.|
I also love my town of Kirksville, Missouri, and the County of Adair. I enjoy studying county and city history and the people who made the history. I feel privileged to be a member of the board called Friends of Forest-Llewellyn Cemetery in Kirksville, secretary/treasurer of Kirksville's Ownbey Cemetery Board and also, as of January 2015, President of the Adair County, Missouri, Historical Society.
Any photos that I have taken and post on this site are free to anyone. You have my permission to copy them for personal use or post to Ancestry.com or any other ancestral sites you wish as long as it is out of respect for the person represented. I hope you find some of your relatives!
I am happy to make any additions or corrections to memorials; just use the Edit tab and I will make the changes as soon as possible.

|Jerry Flook||JUDSON CLARK JONES|
I note that you have posted a photo of Judson C. Jones, but do not know whether he is kin to you. I am a descendant of his sister Naomi Elizabeth Jones, who married Thos. L. Anderson. My question is related to the middle name of J. Clark Jones's mother Nancy. Family tradition names her Nancy Ellen, but the only public record (1850 census Lewis Co.) of her middle name is the initial "J," presumably for Jane. If you are a descendant, can you confirm Nancy's middle name?
Also, do you know where James Cummings Jones and wife Nancy Jones are buried?
Thanks for any help.

I am no kin at all so I think a family member, no matter , should have them. David
|David Sharp||RE: Myra & Fletcher Eades|
You are most welcome. Would you like them transferred to you? David

Thank you for the wonderful history you provided on this memorial. You mentioned that you were not able to find the marriage record for Mary Ann Wilson and Samuel Flowers. It is on FamilySearch.org. Iowa County Marriages 1838-1934. Her name is spelled Mary Ann Hankins - married to Samuel Flowers 2 Feb 1858, Montgomery, Iowa. The actual image is not available - just the transcription. There are multiple records for the marriage to Flowers - her name has also been transcribed as Mackins or Hackins
If you are not familiar with FamilySearch, it is free to join. The ID number for Mary Ann Wilson is 26LN-WSX.
I just noticed a record for Mary Ann's christening - it has 2 Apr 1835, Kirton In Lindsey, Lincoln, England - born to Abraham Wilson and mother, Ann. Interesting. This is actually the record which was used to create the record for Mary Ann Wilson 26LN-WSX. Confusing.
My connection to this family is through Edith's daughter, Mary Etta Newcome who married Elliott Vernon Upchurch. Mary Etta's son, George Willie Upchurch married the sister (Bertia Mae Preston) of my great-grandmother. WHEW! :-)

You're very welcome. I am glad I could have been of help.
|Christi Williams||forgotten child of Jefferson Davis Hungate|
Working of the bios for the Davisson family history book I am preparing, I have located a 'forgotten' child of Jefferson Davis (Turner) Hungate and his wife, Nellie Jane (Davisson) Hungate. This child was a son, who was born in 1887 between the births of Jeff and Nellie Hungate's daughters, Lilly and Ruby.
I have only managed to located a scanty amount of information about this son, which unfortunately does not include a name.
There is also supporting information that helps verify that Jeff and Nellie (Davisson) Hungate had a total of sixteen children, which would include this 'forgotten' child.
Does anyone have additional information about this 'forgotten' child?

Hi, Blytha - thanks for the photo of Ann Kirk on FAGrave! Pictures are always the Holy Grail of family history. Just wondering whether you have any idea who Ann's parents were - if you do know and would care to share the info, I'd be so grateful. I'm having no luck finding them. Again, many thanks for the picture. Best, Sarah Shankland Merlin
|Melinda Nevarez||RE: Mary Sloan|
My Mother would take us there (by the old shoe factory) as children in the early 60's and Mary had a stone at that time. As years went by it decayed prior to David's. At some point I would like to add my family tree to the Sloan's as I'm sure it would have made my Mother very happy. Nancy Miller was her Great Grandmother and she died in 1925 when my Mother was five. Thank you for your contributions to this site. Melinda
|chartegan||RE: Headstone Shadrach Edmonds|
I do apologize. I realized that Shadrach's info was at the bottom of the gravestone AFTER I sent you the email. Thanks for replying to me and for posting the photo of the grave marker.
Do hope you have a Happy Christmas season.
|Melinda Nevarez||Mary Sloan|
This my grandmother of many generations and she is not buried @ Forrest Lewellyn. She is buried next to her husband David in Sloan Cemetery which is located off of osteopathy st in Kirksville on land that was once owned by them. Her daughter Nancy Miller is buried at Forrest Lewllyn. I can remember as a child being able to read both tombstones at the burial sight. Thanks Melinda
