Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was born, we lived in Caldwell County, MO and now live in Daviess County, MO. I have lived in these two counties all my life, except for 7 years when I was a child and lived near Abilene, KS.
I have always enjoyed sitting at the table at family dinners and hearing the older people tell stories about people and times in the past.
I became involved in looking for my genealogy when I got a computer a few years ago. My grandparents are buried in Caldwell County and some of my great and great-great grandparents as well. Some of the names I am researching are LOONEY, SLOAN, FARR, GREEN on my side and HOOD, GARRISON, STORY, HARRIS on my husband's side.


If you are looking for further information on Caldwell or Daviess County, Missouri ancestors, the following are some of my favorite websites:

RE: Daniel Hicks
Thanks for letting me know. I thought you had created the memorial and only they can add family links. Perhaps someone from the other end added it. The memorial has been this way for a good while so hopefully true family historians will catch the problem.

RE: Mem #58506127
Thanks for getting back to me...I was just checking. It's amazing how many memorials with no name or just a partial name were accidentally submitted and not noticed. Have a great day!

Good afternoon, Caryn! Would you please do me a favor and post this photograph to this memorial? There is a backlog of photo requests for Highland Cemetery going back to 2009 and I'd rather have a photo of the marker - without the death date - than just add to the backlog.

Thanks so much. Tom in Kansas City, Missouri

James H. Ellis, America Booth Ellis, Elizabeth Oxford Ellis
Hi Caryn, can you help me out? I see you have James Henry Ellis' (37640312) wife as Elizabeth Oxford Ellis (37640338). I have him as married to America Booth. In the 1860-1870 census James/Henry & America are living in Mercer Co., MO. From 1880-1900 (including 1885 NE census)James shows his spouse as Elizabeth, but her age matches what America should be. Can you tell me if you know anything about America or when James married Elizabeth?

Thanks bunches!

Thank you Caryn
Hi Caryn, Thanks to you I just saw my great, great grandmothers burial spot. Minerva Jane Rhodes DeVaul. So very kind of you to do this for others.
I think I may volunteer here in San Diego.

Many thanks.
