***These are my family surnames in order of significance. If any of them pertain to your own history then I'd definitely love to hear from you. Leave me a message and I'll promptly respond.***


I'm not going to list a bunch of ridiculous rules like some of the many grave collectors do on here.
Instead, I'm going to just tell you that I want to help as many people as I can while making these memorials as accurate as possible.

•I'll transfer ANY GRAVE that you're more related to than myself. Plain and simple. I don't care about silly rules.

•I'll pretty much add any edit or additional information you ask of me.

•I'll also gladly add any obituary that you want me to. This FAG rule annoys me deeply.

MY GOAL here on is to:
PRESERVE & HONOR my own ancestors and as many others as possible along the way.

• Please feel free to CONTACT ME on here at any time. I love interacting with others. I don't understand why some people IGNORE you. I always respond to messages.

About Me

I was born in St. Louis County, Missouri in 1978 and raised close to the same area. Like so many of the people living near the Gateway to the West, our friends, family and the St. Louis Cardinal's Baseball has always been a way of life.

Proudly, both of my parents have a southern heritage. Their history and family folklore's are rich. My dad's grandfather John Henry Day was born in Tennessee in 1870. As a young farmer and in hope of improving his life, settled in southeast Missouri around the Twentieth century, making me a fourth generation Missourian. One of my paternal great-great-grandmothers, Mary E. Black was said to be a Native American Witch , living in the bootheel of Missouri (you gotta love family stories). Mary's legend is still talked about amongst numerous descendants of hers.

My mother and her large family of 11 siblings come from Northeast Alabama. All 4 of her grandparents, Syrous and Rosie (Helton) Guffey and James "Pomp" and
Joanna (Willmon) Guthrie, can easily prove their roots trace back there as far as Two Centuries ago. Like my great-great-great-great-grandparents Ephraim Monroe and Sarah (Underwood) Guffey. Ephraim Guffey, a veteran of the War of 1812, was believed to be the first Guffey to settle in this part of Alabama. His son, Ephraim Underwood Guffey and grandson, Ephraim Berry Guffey are buried nearby in Guffey Cemetery.

I found Rev Thomas F Burns that you had a req in for. He is actually buried at New Morley Cemetery not Old Morley Cemetery. I will put in a request to have that changed. I hope the person does it since I already put the picture on there.

I will check again with the records at Valhalla too. This is rare to not find a record at the SLGS.

Memorial Park in Memphis

Earlier this year you requested a grave photo at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

Never a problem. They are not related. We are the exemptions who want family to "have" their loved one's memorials. Thanks for what you do.

Alice Lucinda (Ewton) Keen
Alice Ewton Keen was a younger sister to my maternal grandmother, Emily Caroline (Ewton) Hazlewood, mem #5705607. She had two older brothers, Caswell Jefferson (Jeff) Ewton #128102663, and James (Jim) Madison Ewton, as well as the (younger) Joseph (Joe) Benjamin Ewton referred to in the Obit. She also had another younger sister Thea Docia Ewton.
This info plus some dates I can provide, can be added to your memorial if you are interested in doing so.

Mr. Day, thank you for your work. I'm the great-grandson of Lawrence B. Myers. I've noticed that his Son, Walter James Myers was left off the listing of children. Walter was born on December 18, 1904 and died on February 13, 1970. He is also buried at Dogwood.
