|Bio and Links|
|I have explored the history of my family for more than twenty five years. I am fortunate that my grandparents saved pictures, shared many stories and had an appreciation for the past. Credit also goes to Great Aunt Lucile for getting me started on serious research. It is a treasure hunt that never ends!|
I will be happy to transfer family members to you, if they are not a family member of mine.
April, 2012-- I have completed the addition to Find A Grave, all graves not already listed for Rice Cemetery, Dade County, Missouri, based on the roster from 1974. I have added some that were overlooked in the roster, or were buried later. I tried to find information about every person, and hope I have made a meaningful tribute to each of them.
Winter, 2012-- Cousin Roberta McReynolds and I have completed the addition to Find A Grave, all graves not already listed for Long Cemetery, Dade County, Missouri. Roberta also searched Missouri Death Certificates to document burials without gravestones. We believe we have photographed and added all stones with names on them to Find A Grave memorials.
Fall, 2014-- Roberta and I have completed grave photographs for Shiloh Cemetery, Dade County, MO.

|Julie Ott||RE: Find A Grave|
I absolutely love the MO Secretary of State, my family has lived in MO since the mid 1800s and I have found a lot of information there! I will head to the Help section.
|Julie Ott||RE: Lee and Maud Jones|
Thank you so much. I actually didn't even realize that you could have a memorial transferred until I was reading your post so you have been so helpfully to me in so many ways I don't even know how to thank you. Thanks to learning about the transfer I was able to receive management of my dads memorial! I will tie in direct family members and update as I discover and verify things.
|Julie Ott||RE: Lee Roy Jones|
Hello, thank you so much for the confirmation. It gets kind of confusing with name switches and name spelling switches as well. I did not know that the ancestry had a different version at the library, I will have to check it out. You can definitely feel free to switch them over to me, I'm not that experienced on findagrave.com but look forward to it. Have a wonderful day. Julie
|Julie Ott||Lee Roy Jones|
Memorial # 135383063
Hello I am the granddaughter of Francis Eunice Jones, daughter of "Jacob Lee Jones". I have only been doing serious research for the last few years. My Aunt called yesterday looking for a death date of Jacob. In questioning her about where and when he died I believe that this Lee Roy Jones was once Jacob Lee. My Aunt confirmed that he went by the name of Lee and I have been able to trace him until the 1930 census. He did name one of his sons Lee Roy as well. According to their marriage certificate Jacob Lee married Maude Pennington in 1899. I am just wondering if you think that the Jacob Lee and Lee Roy are the same person? Thanks Julie
|Donna Atkinson||Cowan dna|
If you are interested in the dna story on Robert Cowan, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is now tied to the Cowan Families in Sullivan/West Va area or NC so far.
|Donna Atkinson||Robert Cowan of Sullivan|
FYI if you don't know.
The information carried in 1975 for Robert Cowan is inaccurate. I have claried and posted the information I found on werelate.org.
The stones used another date and the plaque was placed on top with the birthdates of Robert's wife, Nancy Rutledge Cowan. He did not serve in the 3rd from Pa.
He signs up for the Revolutionary War at Halifax County, NC. You had to be a resident of Halifax or Bertie to serve in the 7th Continental where he did serve. His military records are available through NC MARS online, free. He was born in 1744 but he signed up there in 1775-1776. The unit, no proof yet that he served there, was at Valley Forge but was disbanded in 1787 and he went to Sullivan County, marrying Nancy Rutledge there in 177
niece's name for Sarah Jane Cowan is mistranslated. Look carefully at Alexander Cowan in 1910 and this child is living there Zena Pearl we think. She is a grandchild of Alexander. She is living next door to Sarah J, age 71 in 1930? census. Zena is marredd to John S Story.
The familysearch index is wrong.
|Donald G. Thomas||RE: James Wesley Thomas|
Thank you so much for your information. AND, so quick, too. Someway, I have to make a connection between that Ben Thomas family and an illusive Antham Thomas (born in Nashville, about 1802, or so -- I would guess.) My Great Grandfather was Benjamin Perry Thomas (born 1844 Knox Co. TN; died Vernon Co. MO, 1933), and Antham Thomas (as written on Benjamin Perry's death certificate) was his father. Mystery: Who was Antham? Thanks again for your help.
|Donald G. Thomas||James Wesley Thomas|
My name is Don Thomas and I am researching my Thomas roots and came across the added comment regarding James Wesley Thomas FindAGrave page. I would like to know who contributed the following comment: "James is a son of Ben Thomas of Tennessee." If true, it would be a very important fact, perhaps clarifying a somewhat issue regarding an Antham Thomas of Nashville, TN. Thanks, Don Thomas, Sequim, WA.
|John C. Mahaffey||RE: George Mark Upton|
Hello! I can't believe I haven't seen your kind letter before today. I apologize. I look like your Aunt Lucille? Very interesting! If you can ever send it, try my personal email address: jc@ mahaffey.com. I haven't been to bolivar in about 10 years. All my parents friends are now deceased. Last I saw, the Upton plot monument needed to be power washed. It was getting some moss growth on it.
Have you had any luck with the genealogy beyond JB Upton? I see one fraternal grandfather living in New Hampshire, the one prior in England. Then I have a road block.
