Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will no longer consider transfers outside find a grave guidelines. I have found that most people do not do anything to maintain the memorials after receiving them.

You are free to use my photos how you want. But I please ask you to save it to your computer right. If you save it from the memorial page, you will get a tiny photo that is useless. Click on the photo to take you to a larger copy and keep clicking on it until it gets no larger. Then you can save it at full size and people will be able to see it.

I no longer post full obituaries for later years.

Please do not place Missouri death certificates on these memorials. I ask this, but people still do it. There is no reason to take up the space with these death certificates. They are easily accessible online.

Please, do not put information in flowers! Just click on the edit tab and on suggest a correction and send me what ever information you have. I will put it in the bio as soon as possible. If you put it in flowers, I won't know about it and won't be able to put in in the correct place. Also, any information sent will be checked. Thanks!!

I found this article and it could be this fellow but the dates don't match. If you wish you can post to the memorial.

Article appears in the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, Friday, 5 April 1889 reads...


Sedalia,Missouri, April 5 - George Cooley, foreman of a switchman's crew on the Missouri,Kansas & Texas, was fun over and fatally injured yesterday morning. he was walking backwards signaling an engineer and his foot caught in a frog.

Are you related to her I am she is my 5th great grandmother, I have a FAGM for her but I do not know if you can merge them or not but I did not know where she was buried. If she is not related is there a chance you could transfer her to me. If not I would just like to tell you how glad I am that you took the time and effort to give her a memorial. thanks again Harley

RE: Hazy Kirk
Correct Joseph Phipps was the brother of my 2 grt grandfather Thomas Kinsman Phipps b.1819 VA
We have had real problems finding all of Joseph and Hazys children
From what I can see Hazy let the children chose what last name the kids went by

Do you have a list of all the Phipps children and the Brassfield kids ?

would really like to know.

Hi, Diana,

I don't see a place to put a lot #. I will try to look for it, and put it in.

RE: Re: Alma Hye
I still don't know. Here is a link that might help: It has common German words and phrases on tombstones. Closest one on the list is "Hier Ruhet" (here rests). The plural would be Hier Ruhen. If you don't think that's it, you might ask the cemetery or the church that performed the burial. Another possibility might be to try photographing under different conditions (eg, try HDR, using a flash at different angles, etc) to see if it brings out a sharper image. Good luck!

Yes, I saw that the first time I looked at the memorial. I'm ok with that. This happens so often and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
Sure, of course, it would be so sweet and wonderful if you could attempt a rubbing but in the case of a stone of this condition, am about 99.9% sure there's nothing there to rub.
Thank you Diana. You have been awesome.

Thomas Brandt Thank You
How unbelievably awesome, thank you.
I grew up in the wind swept (literally) plains of IL and had hoped that MO escaped some of that. I see your cemeteries are the same. These poor old stones, weathered beyond even a rubbing. So sad and yet another form of life, new, wearing, and gone.
Thank you again. I had hoped that the stone read Th Brandt. If that was the case it wasn't Thomas but Thees. I am 99.9% certain it is indeed Thees but without proof, and with only the stone transcriptions available, I cannot in good conscience, change the Find A Grave memorial.
