Bio and Links
Bio Photo FINDAGRAVE is such a wonderful site and to think it's available to us for free! Kudos to the members who spend countless hours creating memorials and photographing headstones. I hope to be able to do more of that in the future.

I believe we should take advantage of all of the resources FAG has generously provided us, like bio's and family memorial links. I hope to be able to document all the information I can ascertain while there is still time, and family members are still living. I just lost my own precious Mother in November 2012 and am all too aware of time ticking away. History is being lost in the seconds it takes to read this.

If I am maintaining a memorial of a family member that you are more closely related to or that you have more first hand knowledge of, please let me know and if there are any photos I have posted that you would like to use, YOU HAVE MY PERMISSION to use them.

RE: Gunnell Saunders Memorial# 78004080
No, I do not have a copy of the headstone. It came to me via a hint from Ancestry. I assumed
that it is that of the son. I am not really familiar with that family - only by way of a sister-in-law.

The entire memorial was deleted - along with the obituary. Do you know what happened?

Hi -
Please do not post information regarding duplicate memorials or the correct burial location (or other data) in the flowers section. You have supplied me with the correct cemetery, and asked that I delete my memorial. Although mine was created prior to the other one (which is actually the duplicate), if I have her in the wrong cemetery, I will delete mine. When I do, all the postings you placed in the flowers section will be gone, so your work to add that information was really a waste of time.

Let me know if you don't know how to get to the death certificate

RE: Memorial# 90102529 Emily Shirley
To some extent both are right. Mount Carmel marker was probably a prearrangement that the folks in holt county had no knowledge of. When she died in holt county they probably just decided to have her buried there. I think I found her death certificate on Missouri digital death records. File number 19930.

Hi Deb,

My line goes through Thomas Edward and Catherine Watson. My Ancestry is under the name of Schmaema(1). Is yours Cook Davis "Working" Family Tree? I noticed Hiram's headstone on that site. I haven't worked on the Adam line for some time, I think I'll start again. There has been some question who the parents of Hiram's parent are. You might want to check Thomas' parents death dates again. You have their death dates years before Thomas was born.

Sorry, I don't have a better photo other than the one you added. I tried to edit the photo but it didn't do very much. I did crop the headstone out of the cemetery photo because that was confusing.

Hiram is my 3rd great grandfather.

Best Regards,

Vicki Schmaeman
