Bio and Links
I am very interested in genealogy. I find that the more questions I get answered, the more I have.

I am especially interested in my roots in the Elrod, Givens, Hutchison, Krewson, Southard, Morgan, Tipton, and Hefti families.

If there is a correction or addition to a memorial that I have added, please let me know. Also, if you would like a memorial transferred to you, please let me know.

Pic of Travis John Sr
Hi Ellen

A friend of mine purchased a baggie of photos at a garage sale awhile back and just awhile ago I saw theses photos at an indexing party and was drawn to them. I found a name on the back of one and after much research I believe that the photos are of Travis John and his family. Possibly even photos of the Travis sisters. Travis John Sr I believe got his first name from his mothers maiden name which was Travis. I would love to share the pic of Travis John along with the grave photo you posted. I am not 100% sure of these photos but I do feel my research is correct and that the pic I have is Travis John Sr.

Thanks for your time.

Ruth Minnie Cain Lucas
Hi Ellen. I noticed on Ruth's memorial you left flowers and a note that reads "1st cousin of my grandpa". Ruth was married in St Louis 1915 to my great uncle Harry Herman Williams (his birth name was Busse). They divorced around 1922-23. I was wondering if you had any photo's of her. I have a photo I think may be her, but I don't want to post it unless I'm sure. I would love any genealogy info for her or her parents that you might have. Would really appreciate! Thanks.

Hi Ellen-I see your information on Leora Ida Pierce Lorts. I was wondering if you are a relative of the Pierce family? I am researching her grandmother, Ida Marie Hall Pierce. I am trying to determine if my g-grandfather, Joseph W Hall is her brother. If you don't mind please contact me at Thanks! Robert

Photos at Saint Anthony Cemetery
I see that you have "borrowed" about 42 marker photos from my website,, and added them to memorials at Saint Anthony's Cemetery in Rosati. Please ask before you use photos I took. I took most of them in September 2006 and added them to my site before I knew about Find-A-Grave. I've since had many of those memorials transferred to me because they are relatives and friends of my family, so the situation now is that I am the manager of memorials with photos added by someone else but the photos were actually taken by me.

RE: Marion Franklin Vaughan
It may have been something temporarily wrong with the system. Instead of a photo I only received a small square with the title of the photo beneath. Everything seems to be clear now.

Thank you,

Vienna Public Cem - Wiles/Pendleton
While working on my Pendleton family line, I found Frances (Pendleton) Wiles and husband Lewis here. The headstone pics you took are great and they will help in answering some questions.
I wondered if you would allow me to use them in the family reseach (with credit, of course)? Gail
