Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am updating the Family history and I absolutely love this site. It is a wonderful way to remember Family and Friends who have left us. I appreciate all feedback or corrections to the Memorials that I maintain, and I would add that as far as Transfers go, I don't generally follow the Four-Generation rule. If I have added a Memorial for one of your relatives or friends and they are not a member of my immediate family, please let me know and I will transfer the Memorial to you. As far as duplicates go, if I have made a duplicate please let me know. Not always, but a great deal of the time the Memorial I have created will have a great deal more information. Please let me know so that I can have the Memorials merged leaving management to you. Someone asked me recently if I was documenting my Family only. The answer is No, although I am trying to link everyone in my Family and keep an accurate record. Many other Contributors in my opinion are playing a numbers game and I think that they have lost sight of the original purpose of this site which is

A: To Remember the Lives of Family and Friends,
B: To Create a Record of their Location,
C: To Use as a Genealogical Resource,
D To Provide ACCURATE INFORMATION Please do Not Second Guess!

Blessed Be.

NOTE: I do not list living Children or Relatives on Memorials unless it is part of a genuine, published Obituary.

NOTE: Please use ANY photos of mine that you wish. In addition, while I like Death Certificates on Memorials, I do draw the line at any Death Certificate that is 20 years old or newer.

NOTE: I have also noticed that photos are showing up on my Memorials without my getting a notice. If I did not thank people for their efforts in taking photos, please accept my thanks now.

Special Note: It is my intention to turn these Memorials over to someone I can trust should I be unable in the future to care for them.

RE: Armenia Eakin
You are surely welcome. I am currently "proofing" the E's for our site: making sure the 17,000+ obits we have on cards in our Library are actually on-line; adding FindaGrave icons occasionally; making sure any veterans have the veteran icon, etc. When I come across obits for memorials already on FindaGrave I do as I did for you--happy you could use them!

Find A Grave Memorial# 130191079
Found this article about his death.

Article from the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 10 July 1888 reads...



Cameron, Missouri, July 10 - A terrible accident happened to the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific work train, at 6:20 last evening, two and one-half miles east of Turney and about ten miles west of Cameron, on the Hannibal & St. Joseph Railway, by which one man, Richard Jones, lost his life instantly, and two others Frank Wilcox, engineer and P. H. Cummings, brakeman, are so badly injured that it is impossible for them to live. The work train was backing in from Turney to Cameron, and running at the rate of about eighteen miles an hour, when then came to a trestle some seventy-five feet in length and fully spread apart, and, without a moments warning,precipitated the engine, tender, one box car and three flats into the ravine twenty-five feet below, instantly killing the fireman and scalding the otherwise injuring the engineer, Frank Wilcox and P. H. Cummings, brakeman, so badly that they cannot live. The ill-fated train was in charge of Conductor Coleman, and had on board at the time of the accident William McCallum, road master, Richard Jones, the dead fireman, lives in Cameron and laves a wife and four children. Frank Wilcox, the engineer, has a wife and two children and also lives in Cameron. P. H. Cummings, the brakeman, also lives in Cameron and has a wife and one child.

RE: Massa Eakin
I would be happy to support this distant relative should you wish to transfer its care to me.

Gladys Marie Eakin
I was browsing around a newspaper database (now I can't remember if it was my new subscription to or the free one called Historic Oregon Newspapers]. The Eugene Guard, 28 Aug 1918, page 3: "Child is Adopted - Papers were issued on Tuesday to Annie A. Ames legalizing the adoption of Gladys Marie Eakin, the daughter of Mrs. Margaret Savage. The mother filed her consent to the adoption and the child is now named Gladys Ames." Even though it doesn't look like she stayed with the Ames family, I'm so happy to see her on findagrave looking like she had a good life. I can't imagine what transpired to cause Margaret to give up her child after she married Jesse Lee Savage (my grandfather's brother). -Jackie

Thank you so much for the reply. Could you email me privately at

Rachelle and my "father" was a musician, so it's not surprising that jake turned out to be one. The first time I met Rachelle, she was very pregnant with Jake.

Please send me anything you might have that relates to the half sister I didn't get to know as much as I would have liked.
If you have a phone number for Carol, that would be great...

Rachelle Bailey
Rachelle was my half sister, we had the same father. She and I got to know one another very late in life. We last saw one another in 1999.

I was not told of her passing until 2008. Any information would be appreciated.

RE: Rupp Gibons
Hi Rebecca!

Thank you for making the changes so quickly! His name really is Rupp - that is his mom's maiden name. Sallie Rupp's grandparents ran away from Europe to Pennsylvania together. The German grandmother was from a royal family about to become a princess, however, she had fallen for the French coachman, Johann Rupp. They also had different religions so it would have been a mixed marriage on two different levels and they fled so they could be together. :)

Samuel Eakin 2nd Wife
Thank you for letting me know about your discovery of Samuel's second wife .. also named Sarah Ellen, just like his first wife.

You were right on the mark and my Find A Grave memorials and genealogy records have all be updated to reflect your GREAT find! Much appreciated.

RE: Charlotte Amy Dunlap
A picture has been posted for Mr. Henderson on his memorial page as you wished. It isn't the same one I posted for Charlotte but slightly different. I always take more than one photo of a gravesite as I can never be sure I haven't managed to accidently photograph my pinky (again)or catch my reflection in the stone or cast a shadow upon it. Once I even got a a cemetery streaker in a photo. Dumpy, middle aged men should wear clothes in a cemetery; it's only common decency and a matter of good taste. (Ugh!) Evidently the guy was visiting some deceased drinking buddies and was totally inebriated. Why the clothes had to come off is a mystery to me. He got as far as the cemetery gate before the cops nabbed him. These camera/phones are a marvel aren't they?
