|Bio and Links|
I am currently working on Woodlawn Cemetery in Independence, Missouri. The cemetery was founded in 1837 with the purchase of 1.25 acres adjacent to the Stayton Family Cemetery for the "interment of all Jackson County residents". In 1845 Joseph and Sally Hansbrough sold one and 6/25 acres of land for use as a grave yard for persons of Jackson County. The land was to be used for the purpose of public burials. This established the cemetery known for many years as the City Cemetery. The land south of the original cemetery was sold to Father Donnelly in 1853 adding six acres on the southern edge calling it Saint Mary Cemetery for the use of Catholic patrons. These three cemeteries were combined in 1922 to become Woodlawn Cemetery. The Woodland Cemetery now contains 56 acres, the final resting place for over 33,000 graves. Within its walls is the history of the Civil War and the Sante Fe Trail.|
I spent the summer getting the entire cemetery photographed and I am in the process of posting all to Find A Grave along with any information I can get. The records at Woodlawn start in 1897, but I started at 1910 for now because I can usually find some supporting documents to verify the entries in the book. Always willing to transfer memorials to their family. I also worked on Blue Springs cemetery the summer before. There are a lot of names that I am not posting at this time because I can't find any information on them other than they are listed in the records at Woodlawn. It only gives a name, age, race, gender and date of internment and most of the time a plot location.
At the present time I am mapping out the cemetery. I have documented Division 1, Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 A, 14 B, Stayton Meadows Garden, New St. Mary's Cem., Sec. 21 and Division 2, Sections 1, 2 & 3. I am working on Old St. Mary's Cem., Sec 17 now.

Updated! Thanks for the corrections....
|Richard Parker||Jerry Hammon|
I did a little digging and manage to track down Jerry's mother's social security. Her name was Mona and not Nona. I have added this information to her memorial for proof and added the maiden you sent. I have not found any proof of the maiden name but accept that you have it correct. Could not
find their marriage record. I have no idea where they got married. Maybe a little more digging and with some luck, I might find it.
Thanks again, Richard
|Richard Parker||Jerry Hammond|
I have received your information on Jerry's parents. I have a problem with his mother's first name of Nona. On her tombstone it is listed as M. Lois Hammond. I only knew her as Lois. I don't question her maiden name, because I never knew it. Instead of Nona could it have been Mona. Unless you can provided proof, I will not be making any changes. I understand that the "M" could be a mistake. I just have to have proof of some kind.
Jerry only had one wish in life. He wanted to live to be twenty-one. He had MS and he new that most children who had Ms didn't live a long life. If my memory is correct, he died a few days after his twenty-first birthday.
Thanks for all the corrections you have sent in the pass,
|Betty Rose M.||Sidney B Hurd|
Thank you. Your information has been added to the memorial and you have been given credit.
|Dixie Armstrong||Grace Lee Tripp Lemmon|
I've requested several edits for your memorial 88892266 Grace Lemmon. Her Missouri death certificate incorrectly identifies her mother as Anna Woodcock. (Information is briefly listed on memorial) Anna Woodcock was Grace's first husband's mother.
Her son Carrol Sylvester was the informant on the DC, and he listed his paternal grandmother as his maternal grandmother. Both of his grandmothers were named Anna.
|Mary Hall Miller||Dr. Earl V Smith 146223584|
Hello Mr. Meador,
Thank you for the updates for Dr. Smith. I have linked him with his family.
Thank you for your research and contributions.
|Virginia Brown||George F Hanks|
Thanks a lot for the names of his parents. I have added your information to his memorial giving you credit.
|Doris Christensen||RE: ROY GRIFFING|
Thanks, appreciate the quick response. I will add the name to his bio.
|Doris Christensen||ROY GRIFFING|
Thank you for the additional information of Roy's family. I found his parents online and have added family links.
I'm a little confused about the wife's name you mentioned 'Forrest Elma'. Was she a second spouse? I could find nothing on F.A.G. about her and jst wondering before I add her name to his bio.
