Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please DO NOT post family history in the memorial notes and flower section. That is not the purpose of that feature. If you have additional information, please use the edit tab to contact me.

Any obituaries that I have posted on my memorials will not have the names of any living relatives. (I am not responsible for obits added by other contributors as a photo) Also, I try to not include living spouses when photographing headstones.
To quote local genealogist Joan Griffis,
"Personal information concerning living individuals should not be published or shared on the internet without the permission of those individuals."
I choose to just omit the names.

Most of the names I have added are family, either to myself or my spouse, and would like to keep those. I have added various other memorials, such as family friends, etc, so if I have a memorial that you would like transferred, it doesn't hurt to ask! Others have been generous to me and I enjoy passing that generosity on to others.

Grace M. Quirin
Hi Katy,
I have a photo of Grace M. Quirin's headstone from St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery in Smithton, however the dates don't match the Grace Quirin that you are requesting. The headstone reads :
Raymond J. 1909-1942 "Father"
Grace M. 1907-1982 "Mother"

Let me know if this is the marker for which you are looking and I will post it.

RE: Kesner family

that is the one. I believe that John is Ephraims brother, George and Ananais are his sons from his first wife. You can find them in Mississipi county Missouri in the 1870 census and In the 1880 census however the name spelling is Kessner. then somewhere between 1880 and 1900 John Died. we then find a Sara Kestner With 3 children at home in the same county and township. Belle Kesner Meisner's death certificate says its Geo Kestner and Sara Baily as parents but is was filled out by her husband who died 3 years later from senility so he may have been confused. Belle Kesner (Meisner) is buried in the same cemetery as my grandpa and great uncles. who I think were her brothers. Im just trying to prove that they are brothers and sisters but running into a brick wall finding John and Sarah C (Catherine) Katy Kesner/Kestner Ha Ha isn't geneology fun!

RE: Kesner family
This is not 100% accurate and based on some speculation but the similarities are to remarkable to ignore. Particularly with the name Kaziah

John C Kesner is Ephraim Kesner's brother.
He should be Kaziah Isabel "Belle" Meisner father. John C Kesner married Sarah C Bailey in 1860. His second wife. They moved to Missouri in around 1880. In census records name spelling Kessner. (neither John nor Sarah could read nor write.) 1890 burnt so no records. 1900 census Shows a Sarah Kestner with 3 children at home Anis (Ennis Andrew) Joseph, and Isaac. Sarah had 13 children of whom only 5 were still alive. The 3 at home, and Kaziah (Belle), and another unknown. Kaziah (Belle) is buried in the same cemetery as the Ennis Isaac and William. Joseph is lost possibly died young. I am searching to find John and Sarah whom I think are Ephraims brother and sister in law. I need proof then I can link the 2 groups. Because It would Be John, then Ennis, then Eurie, Then Bobby, then myself. LOL sorry such a long message. I am in champaign Illinois by the way
