|Bio and Links|
We have had an especially hard year this past year loosing some very loyal and lovable animals. May they all be together in a better place.|
We lost our Australian Cattle dog, Blue Too, on April 6th, 2016. She was the best house dog, watch dog, varmint dog and cattle dog. I miss her so much since she kept me company when she wasn't needed elsewhere on the farm. She was my best buddy and the greatest THERAPY DOG. We also lost a very special Gelbvieh cow, Buttermilk, on April 16, 2016. She was so gentle that anyone could pet her. Our whole family will miss Blue Too and "Butters". We also had to let one of our good dogs, George, go on November 18, 2016. He was getting up there in years and had many health problems.
I love to receive edits especially those that link memorials together or add info. but there are a few memorials that I prefer to use HTML coding in the bio. area to do links to parents/spouse. Please do not ask me to use the family link option on these memorials.
Please do not post death certificates or obituaries as photos on memorials that I have created or manage. NOTE: Death certificates do not necessarily contain completely accurate information about the deceased. There are often errors regarding the final burial location (as well as other data).
FAG's Memorial Naming Conventions: Non-famous Memorials
1) If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
2) Use a PERIOD after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
3) Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field.
4) Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any Name Field.
5) Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.
How do I enter all married names for a woman's memorial when she was married more than once?
The last name is the name that is on the headstone. Include other married names as part of the biography section. The maiden name is only for her maiden name.
FOR THOSE TAKING PHOTOS PLEASE CHECK OUT THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE: How to Get Great Photos for FindAGrave
And please make sure you are adding your photo to the correct memorial page!
PLEASE DO NOT ADD PHOTOS WITH "DATE STAMPS" and preferably without a WATERMARK (Your name), even though a watermark is allowed by FAG I just don't care for them.
I would PREFER to see photos of the whole stone not just a close up of it. If a close up is necessary to read the names & dates then that would be fine. Please take photos at a RIGHT ANGLE to the face of a stone so upright stones do not look like they are falling over. No shadows of body parts, etc. across the stone if at all possible and no reflections of the person taking the photo. No cemetery photos with cars or people in them make for a much nicer photograph. I would still like to continue to photograph all the stones in the La Plata cemetery, La Plata, Macon County, Missouri as a
tribute to my mother & a cousin who were both passionate family genealogist but are now deceased. Please give me the opportunity to do this little project myself. I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
One U.S. farmer provides enough food and fiber for 154 people. Farm families make up about 2 percent of the U.S. population, yet provide for themselves and the other 98 percent. The average age of a farmer is 58.3 years and continues to climb with fewer and fewer young farmers entering the business due to the high cost of land, machinery and other input costs as well as all the government regulations that are being imposed on them. Farmers work 365 days a year with no benefits. They have to pay for their own health insurance, dental bills, etc. and they don't get to take sick leave or have a paid vacation. Farming is only for those who love doing it!
In 1896 William Jennings Bryan said it best, "Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic, but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country." As long as the North American farmer can supply our food at a price that allows us to spend the greatest part of our income for our cars and TV's and recreational items, our high standard of living can continue. But when our farmers can no longer produce our low-cost food, or when they have no economic incentive or ability to produce this food truly again, "the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the county."
Farmers are having their land, homes and livestock taken over and destroyed by large electric utility companies so they can build high voltage transmission lines across them. We are also losing our land to roads, urban & rural growth, etc. If this isn't stopped soon we may soon see mass starvation right here in the United States!
Despite recent news reports farmers do not set a price for their livestock, corn, soybeans or anything else they raise unless it is sold to another farmer privately. Farmers taking livestock to the sale barns or grain to a local elevator have to accept what ever someone else is willing to pay them! When we go to buy seed, fertilizer, tractors, cars or trucks, food, etc. we have to pay what others are asking for those items. Farmers do not pass the cost of land, taxes, feed or fuel on to anyone else!

Thank you for taking the time to photo the stones for Jacob, Sarah, William & Alfred Fraden on this very hot & humid day. A job well done and keep up the good work............
|Leslie (Bridges) Kohler||RE: George Ann Eugenia (Miller?) FOX.|
Thanks for the information that you shared with me. "Annie" (as she was called by her family) was my husband's grandmother.
From many in my husband's family (He had 5 siblings.) come the tales that Annie was, indeed, illegitimate.
Her mother, "Cassie", had worked for a family named ROBINSON. Since Cassie had the name of Henry ROBINSON written throughout her Bible,
most of the family believes that Henry ROBINSON *was most likely* "Annie's" biological father.
We may likely *never* know the truth for certain.
|Carol Hopper Bader||Adelbert and Grace Kincheloe|
Thank you for creating the Find-A-Grave pages for Adelbert and Grace Kincheloe. Also, thank you for sharing the pictures of their headstones. We are first cousins 2x removed. His middle name, Sibley, is my mother's maiden name.
|Leslie (Bridges) Kohler||William Mathias Broyles and Barbara Catherine Broyles divorce|
Thanks for the adding the record of this divorce. I have been on the run every since I got home; and, therefore, had failed to let you know that my sister-in-law's research notes (all written by hand) do indeed show the same date of this divorce -and- a reference to who "Cassie's" biological father may have been.

Hello, I am curious if you are related to the Amos (43479944) and Hattie (43479955) Dull Family and Son Howard Emmitt (43479965) Dull. I am doing some DNA searching and am a great grand daughter of Katherina Uhtof, mother of Hattie. Thank You so much for your reply in advance. Have a great day! Joanne
|David Mabery||RE: requested info|
For Ted I think it should stay as Francis. After some research that is how I found it ( I have corrected my records). On my grandmother, yes, Lane in her maiden name her middle name is Alvina.
Again thank you so much.
Ted Frances "Teddy" Mabery. My original message has it as "Francis"
|David Mabery||requested info|

Their status would be Creamated- ashes scattered. One other request, can this all be linked to my brothers memorial? His name is Dennis Paul Mabery and the memorial # is 17238617. Thank you for all that you are doing
|David Mabery||fathers info|

|David Mabery||RE: Yes, you can add info. yourself.|
I want to thank you also, in that looking thru memorials I see that you have created many of them for my relatives. Including the Hatfield side that is in the Hatfield family cemetery. Not too many people know about that one. I am just really glad that it is still there and maintained so well.
