Bio and Links
I have recently moved to Missourri but I was born and raised in Nebr. I love the area here it is mostly undisturbed forest area. I enjoy being outdoors, painting ,photography, and working.

I decided to get started in F.A.G. because a friend of mine set up my mother's memorial and I was hooked. I think this is a great site for those of us who are not close to their loved ones burial sites. It has inspired me to get off the couch and accomplish something good. I have always loved helping people out.

Rauls at Marcus Memorial Cemetery
Thank you for photographing the headstone of John Rauls, memorial 50611236. His wife is buried with him, and I have added her just now as memorial 163261853. Would you please post that same photo to her memorial, too?

Thanks in advance,

I know your sister Dianna, she is friends with my friend Rita. She told me about your mom and so I looked it up on find a grave and left her flowers. Heard she was an amazing woman!

Fredricktown Cemetery
I was wondering what the actual name of this cemetery really is since this note is posted on a photo request:
I talked to a couple people in the Fredricktown area and they didn't have him in their cemetery. There is ,again, no such cemetery. When they get the actual name I will be happy to go get it. I had to dig for the other people in this area that is the best I can do.

Thank You Andrea...

I apologize for taking so long to thank you. I've been working out of state most of the summer, and just returned home. What a nice surprise to find that you had taken the time to locate and photograph the grave site of Andy Carter in Wayne County.
Again, I Thank You ~ Judy Carter-Hanson

RE: Cemetery mixup
Thank you for the cemetery names on the photos. I changed both the Ragsdale's that you had photos. I have switched Bernard Ragsdale over to Christian along with his wife, which is probably where he is buried. Thank you for all the extra work you have had to go through for us!

Hi Andrea,
Do you remember the other 2 names for Williams? They are not listed on Find A Grave. Matilda's husband name was Seth Williams. I can understand how you feel about the picnic lunch and documenting the cemeteries. I just recently attended the annual decoration day at the Center Ridge Cemetery in Wayne Coiunty near Wappapelo Lake and met 3 2nd cousins that I had never met before. It turned out that I had great Grandparents on both sides of my family buried there. We had an outside church service, a short business meeting (they are very organized about the cemetery) and enjoyed a pot luck dinner while visiting with many nice people. I enjoyed it so much - I plan to attend each year that I can. i will keep in touch if I get any more information on my grandparents. Thank you again for all of your help.
God bless,
Bonnie Waltman Radford

Matilda Williams
I want to thank you and your husband for taking your time to search the Mountain View Cemetery in Des Arc, Mo for the headstone of my Great Grandmother Matilda Williams. I'm sorry the search was not productive but the fact that you inquired with the keeper of the cemetery for their records really impressed me with your dedication to Find a Grave and all of the families searching for their ancestors. Matilda's death certificate said she was buried at Des Arc, Mo. and this is the only graveyard I know where our family is buried. I truly appreciate your efforts and have added you to my friend's list. Good luck in the future with all of your endeavors.

RE: graves
What a dilemm; I had no idea. I'm sure those that wrote the Death Certificates didn't realize the problem being caused by their not making themselves clear, or maybe there USED to be a Fredricktown Cemetery. Who knows?! Thanks for all you are doing to "find" the stones. Maybe when you do actually post a stone photo, you could identify the name of the cemetery, even adding the address or such to give the rest of us an idea of where these folks are buried. Thanks again for all you are doing to help those of us so far away. Arleta

Bernard Ragsdale
I got an email today reporting a problem finding Fredricktown Cemetery, however you already posted Henry Lawrence Ragsdale & Evelyn Virginia Ragsdale's stone photos. I don't quite understand; supposedly they are all buried in the same cemetery. Please email me. Thank you. Arleta
