Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in rural Sullivan County and still consider "there" to be my real home. I hope to do as much research and photography there as time allows.
My roots include the ancestors of George Dewey Morris and Emma Jane Ward Morris. I'm also interested in the ancestors of Kenneth and Helen Pipes Cochran.
I enjoy following up on photo requests and would love to hear from fellow researchers. I'm relatively new at this so am learning how to obtain information.

RE: Francis Dillinger
Oh, you're SO welcome....And, now I have a definite date for his birth and her death. Good things happen when we work together! :)

RE: Francis Dillinger
You are welcome. I cannot find a marriage record for his father with the second wife, Martha Ellen Beck.

I am suspecting that since he was born in Apr 1867, and his mother died on 17 Apr 1867, she might be the first wife of his father.

Bertha Lenora Taylor #62366557
She is listed as Sarah J and Meakin Taylor's daughter, but she is actually their granddaughter. You will notice that her birthdate is after they have both died. It is a little confusing in that her headstone only lists initials, but her parents are actually Samuel James Taylor and Martha Eliza Cochran. I have found the ID for Samuel (#62366557) but I do not have one for Martha, his second wife.

Helen Marie (Pipes) Cochran #62362369.
The information contained in the note added to the memorial for Helen Marie (Pipes) Cochran #62362369 actually belongs in the bio. area. Would you please consider including her parents names & those of her husband's in the bio. as this is where Find A Grave suggests it should be. Thanks,

Fredrick Taylor

You have Fredrick (1881-1885) listed as the son of Meakin and Sarah Taylor. I believe that he is actually their grandson. His parents are likely Samuel James Taylor (1828-1905) and Harriet Earls Whilhite (1831-1879) or possibly Samuel James Taylor and Martha E Sterling (1860-). My issue is none of their dates seem to work either. Samuel did not marry Martha until November of 1881 but Fredrick appears to have been born in June. I am still working on this family and it is possible my dates are incorrect but I am pretty certain Sarah (1799-1846) did not give birth to him.

The spelling of Sutherland family graves should read Southerland. Thank you for work. I will try to add photos later.

Please correct the spelling of his daughter's name. It is Launa. She is my Gt-Grandmother. Thank you for your time.

Actual Name for C. H. Hart
According to his MO death certificate, this burial was for Gable H. Hart. He was born 1 Nov 1824 in Illinois and died 1 Dec 1915 in Linneus, with burial at Cora. The carving on the tombstone looks like a C. but I think it is really a G.
