Another ongoing project is to gather & index all the current obituaries from the Excelsior Springs Standard, Richmond Daily News, and Lawson Review. The index is posted on the websites.

Please remove obit. added as a photo.
Please remove the photo of the obit you added to the memorial for Kale May Colyer #53734581. The obit has been typed up in the bio. area and therefore it is not needed as a photo. Also I prefer to keep the photo area open for family photos or photos of the grave. Thanks,

RE: William Creason/Ray Co MO
Sorry. I do not use this site for numbers or how many memorials I can post... I could care less about that stuff...I don't need credit for anything, and I never think that way. Also, I would never post a duplicate memorial on purpose. I use it as a genealogical tool...Sorry for the mix up.

I see you are "mapping" Cemeteries.
I am related.
I am sure you wouldn't mind deleting your memorial,
since I put a lot of family info & links on mine.

Thomas Henry Loyd's sister was my great-great-great grandmother Martha E. Loyd Hartung 1833-1888. I cannot find her final resting place. In addition, I cannot find their father's gravesite (Henry Loyd 1801-1861). Henry's wife and Thomas Henry's mother Nancy Tarwater Loyd is also buried in Riffe. Do you have any insight? Thank you!

Hello there. Leona Miller Allen Johnson is my great grandmother. I wonder if I might be able to manage this memorial? I provided the photos to Marian Presswood who posted them here before I was able to have the time to really get into researching. She helped me a lot. Anyway, thank you for what you do and let me know what you think

Best regards,

Mary Allen Bliefnick

You are welcome.

Perhaps I will have the opportunity to search for additional siblings.

Dear moraycc
Recently I was in Harris Cemetery. I took a photo and created a memorial for Ida Blanche and linked her parents. I thought you would want to know.

Thank you so much for the map to this cemetery. Is this a public cemetery that I can visit. Also, is there an office so I can ask about other family members. Thanks again.
