Old Milam Cemetery in Macon County, MO.
Saw one of your photos for William Wirt Dye from Old Milam Cemetery. Have you been there personally? Was trying to find the location. Have heard it is somewher west of Milam Chapel Cemetery.

Same person ?
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 57869231 vs # 73874505

Dear turnbjan

I think your page for Col. Joseph Gerrish (#73874505) are of the same person of Col. Joseph Gerrish (#57869231) page created by Mr. John Glassford. Even though the death year is incorrect on the page he created.

Re: Eunice Morse Peaker
Good evening.

I was able to check cemetery records and find no record of Mrs. Peaker's interment there. As I mentioned earlier, there is no stone for her. Records indicate that there were two plots purchased, but only one has a burial.

I wish I had better news for you, but I just don't. I'm sorry. I hope that the big stone brings you pleasure in the knowledge that she was well-loved by her husband, Charles. confirms my findings.

RE: Eunice Morse Peaker
The issue of copying obituaries onto FindAGrave is a touchy one. The FAQs address that question. I have seen it done many ways,and have done it many ways. In your case, for the sake of posterity, I would list the source of your information indicating that she rests at Waterman and who she is and what her story is. She was important to this community, and this information is what we have for now. Then do what your heart tells you to do. <3

Eunice Peaker
Update: I have uploaded a photo of the family grave. Inspection of cemetery records show two people buried at this site. Charles, and Charles W. There is no mention of Eunice, but there is room for her to be there.

We continue to follow with the cemetery board to determine if she is or is not buried with her husband. I did want to share this beautiful stone, though. It's in remarkably good condition with beautiful detail, yet great simplicity.

I will follow with more information as it becomes available.

RE: Eunice Morse Peaker
I forgot to include the source? I'm so sorry! Mrs. Peaker's obituary was published on the front page of the "Sutherland Courier" on January 22, 1920. It can be viewed online at

FindAGrave's policies prevent me from posting a copy of the actual obituary, but would happily send it to you via email if you choose. Or you can make your own. :)

We are still working to pinpoint Mrs. Peaker's memorial marker. Her husband Charles' marker is easily found, but not hers. I have a message in to the keeper of the maps, and will follow with those results as soon as he gets back to me.

Col. W F Morse
Hi there,

I am writing to ask for your help in tracing a member of the Morse family.

I am writing a book on Oscar Wilde, the Irish writer.

I am trying to find out more about Col. W F Morse, who managed Oscar Wilde when he visited the US in 1882-3.

Morse is said to have served in the United States Army during the Southern insurrection. Nothing is known about him until 1881, when he surfaces in theatre management. By then (and perhaps earlier), Morse was engaged as an American business manager for the English impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte.

Do you know if this is the same Wilbur F. Morse (1839-1921) who is listed here? I have further research which suggests he may be, which I would be happy to share with you off list.

Any information, leads or ideas would be very gratefully received. I'd be delighted to discuss this further with you.

Many thanks,
