Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired military veteran and law enforcement officer with an endless love of history. Cemeteries are a significant part of that passion, for in them lie the stories, written and unwritten, of my past, our past, this country's past. Together with my wife, Tina, we love wandering through old cemeteries, graveyards, and family burial plots, listening to those stories come alive as we read the tombstones of those who have gone on before. For decades, we have both traveled the globe, researching, where we could, the trail of those people that would eventually lead to us. We are still searching...and if we can help any of you find some of your lost loved ones, then those will be more good days for us. Should we locate your relative or friend, would you do us the favor of a public message of thanks on our volunteer page? We can assure you that your personal words of appreciation really mean a lot, and more than compensate for the petrol and bug spray we used. Carpe Diem!!!

RE: Fred B Houghton
How interesting!
I am retired from KCPD, dispatcher; probably have had contact with you at one time or the other :)
Glad we can work together here.
I am sure it was very heartbreaking to have to be involved any investigation of the death of one of our own.
Blessings; THANK YOU for your contribution to K.C. and for your military service!

THANK YOU for the kind message you left on my daughter's memorial; I had never heard it put that way before and it is a comfort to me to know she has reached the other side, a better place.
Blessings to you,

RE: Fred B Houghton
How awesome that you would dedicate your free time to locate the memorial for this "fallen" police officer. I much appreciate your efforts and applaud you for your keen detective skills!
How satisfying it would be to find him :)
Thank you,

RE: Fred B Houghton
Thank you for your attention to detail :) I have added your suggestions and elaborated on his memorial.
I also have attempted to locate his resting place but to no avail. I had hoped it would be at Orange Village Cemetery but there is no listing.
Blessings to you for all you do,

guilliams cemetery, craig, mo
Stopped by the cemetery today and found it to be in awful shape. Was hoping to find my three times great grandfather John Lewis Guilliams there, but it's such a mess that it would be impossible at this point. Do you know if there is a plot map?

On Jan 30, 2014 you added a picture of my cousin, Floyd Allen Haworth's ... Find A Grave Memorial# 69685364 ... headstone.

Will you please see if you still have the pic and upload to his wife's memorial #143035373 ... Mary I Damery Haworth.

I am grateful to all of you that do for those of us that can't.

Also, is it ok for me to use your pic in my family tree on
