Jenkins, Ruby Marie Bash 133214626
b. Mar. 23, 1920 d. Jul. 23, 2014

She loved flowers. She made her own from crepe paper & decorated Jenkins family and other family graves of people who had died before she was born, as well as those she had known, until she began to buy artificial or real ones. She was still interested in growing flowers at 94.

Please leave some of your flowers with her, and my dad, he loved flowers too.

Jenkins, Joseph Frederick "Joe" 40428086
b. Sep. 2, 1910 d. Oct. 21, 1974

Thank you.

Lucien F. Smith
I apologize for the "plethora" of updates and additional information regarding Lucien and his family (or families). He has been very difficult to track between the birth of his first child, Luches, with his first wife, Amelia Daggett, in 1867. At a request from a another researcher 2-3 years ago, I did some additional research and found that he had married (2nd) Anna Sawyer, and that they had a son, George Clarence (or Clarence George). Until I read the notes in his obituary which you posted, I had no idea that he had apparently been married BEFORE he married Amelia and that he had two children by that wife: Frank P. and May listed in the obit. In his death record which I recently found for Frank P., his mother's maiden name was "Stewart" but no first name was listed. I now believe that her name was Jennie (may have been a nickname for Virginia). I found a "Jennie Smith" in KCMO in the 1870 census report with Frank P. and May. She was listed as "married" but no husband was present in the census report. I will keep digging and attempt to document more of she and Lucien. Could it be that Lucien was a "gad-about" who had more than one family?

BTW, I have created Find A Grave records for Lucien's parents, Elijah and Sylvia (Childs) Smith and linked Lucien and his four siblings to them.

Mark W Garrison
Thought I'd let you know that I found Mark W Garrison in the Social Security Death Index. It
showed that he was born 12 Nov 1945 and died 29 Dec 2012. It showed his last residence was in Joplin, Florida, but I could not find a town in Florida with that name. I think it was Joplin, Missouri. Wished I knew where he was buried and had an obituary of him.

I found out this evening that his daughter Tina Garrison Oaks passed away on February 8. I don't know any of her information, obituary, or place of burial.

John Richard Morey
John R. Morey is my 3rd Great-Grandfather, I have about 95% of his descendants recorded in my family tree. I am having trouble finding out who his Parents were and who his siblings were if he had any, so if you know this information or know of where I can locate this information that would help me tremendously.

(I am using ancestry to make my family tree and I have a free account)
