Florence B. Allen
Hello Sir, I see you have done a memorial page for Florence B. Allen daughter of Isaac & Clarissa (Jerrel/Jerrolds/Gerald/McGerald) Allen and was wondering if you might have some information on her. She is the niece of my Grandfather William Ely (Jerrel/Gerald/McGerald) Jarrell. I am looking for Isaac & Clarissa after 1880 Stoddard County, Missouri Census. They are also the parents of Minnie Laura Allen Pelts which I believe is in your family line.

Thank you for your time and patience in this matter.

Hi James,

I received your email and I thank you very much. I didn't mean to be so abrupt. I had a much longer message, but didn't know if I should send it. I am on Ancestry my tree is "Bankston Malloy Family Tree. That Arkansas, Missouri corner is where my family settled when they moved from Georgia. I have lived in Arkansas as a child. I was born in Detroit, MI a lot of the relatives moved to Michigan. My Son-in-law has family in Flint, Their last name is Spainhower. I thank you for the work you do for I am 72 years old I hope there are others who know some of the family history. Are you connected to the Bankston family? I would be pleased to hear from you again. I may be able to share some information.

Hi James,

Since I left the last message I found a photo of J. H. & Louise (Louisa) McMillen Bankston's Head Stone that list the spelling as (Louisa). It is listed as Louise E. McMillen on Marriage record. Her children pronounced it as (Louiza). So I guess "Louisa" may be correct.

Thank you,

Hello James,

My name is Donna. I have been searching the Dunlklin Co, MO Cemeteries for family. I was so happy to find, what I am certain is a long lost great Aunt. She was the last of her imediate family.

The information was listed as:
Liberty Cemetery

Opie Lee Bankston
Dec 5, 1911 - Dec 24, 1911
Daughter of: J. H. & Linsia (McMillod) Bankston

I could not correct it through edit.

It should be translated as:

Opal Lu Bankston
Dec 5, 1911 - Dec 24, 1911
Daughter of: J. H. & Louise McMillen

I would love to know if there is a picture of the stone. How could I get one if there is?

Are you family of Keith Brown? I'd be happy to transfer to you if you are.

I am the granddaughter of James. I looked up him up on find a grave and noted that you had added a picture of his marker.
Are you related? I never met him and I believe he was orphaned.

Organ Cemetery, Pemiscot Co., MO
Drove from Murray, Calloway County, KY today to Caruthersville, Pemiscot County, MO. Was searching for an obituary and grave site of William M. Story who was born in Calloway County, KY supposedly died February 28, 1892 and buried in Organ Cemetery in Pemiscot County, MO. Could locate an obituary on microfilm at the library and the road to the cemetery was flooded. Does William M. Story actually have a headstone? If so, is it upright? Is it easy to locate? Looks like I may to get out to the veteran's grave site in late fall. Thanks for your help.
Calloway County, KY native and US veteran.
