Bio and Links
Bio Photo My direct lineages include Collins, Cunningham, Hopkins and Robinson. My husband's families are Franks, Morgan, Reid, Taylor. I was born and continue to live in Howell County, MO.
I always do additional research for death certificates or have found the person's obit in
the archived newspapers at the public library before I suggest an edit to the creator of the memorial.
If I have entered your relative and you would like a transfer of their memorial, please send me a request. I have no desire to "own" a large number of memorials, I just want people to be able to find their relatives resting places. If you see a mistake I have made, or would like some addtional information added, just let me know, I will warn you that I probably will transfer the memorial to you if you have an interest in it. Please do not add obit information in flower section. You may send the information you would like added using the message option, edit link or email with correct information, I will respond to all. If you will refer to FAQ's you will notice that find a grave states that names of living relatives are not to be added to a memorial without their permission and it is for that reason that I do not copy obits as they appear in newspaper publications.
I would prefer that copies of the death certificate not be added to memorials I have created as they can be accessed online and take up room for pictures of the individual. (Missouri death certificates thru 1965 can be viewed free of charge at, you can also print a copy)

I have added some relatives that I have knowledge of but don't know where they are buried. If you have informaion of any of these, please let me know.

RE: Hello
So good to hear from you Kathy! Yes, it was wearing on the nerves to hear all the negatives, in a world of negatives :) But we persevered and are on the right track now I believe so I guess it all paid off. Looking forward to a big upswing in American traditional values.
Have a BLESSED Thanksgiving! It'll be Christmas before we know it.
Fondly, Martie

RE: Millie Hassell Carter
Hi Kathy,

She is my 2nd great grand aunt. (My great grandmother was a Hassell)(Millie's niece) If that is close enough for you I don't mind taking over and making the changes instead of you having to do it.

Burtons at Mt Zion Cemetery
I was informed by another contributor that I had some errors in a couple of my entries. I got everything sorted out except that now there are some photos that don't match. I will explain what I did below.

1) I Changed # 90524864 from Aneliza to Eliza Ann Cooper, 1st Wife of William Henry Burton
# 90524382
* Your Photo no longer matches the entry. If you would remove it I would appreciate it.

2) I Changed # 90525509 by adding the nickname 'Aneliza'. She was the 2nd wife of W H Burton.
* Your Photo no longer matches the entry. If you would remove it I would appreciate it.

3) I added info to Mary Ann Black Burton
# 90525978. She was the 3rd wife of W H Burton

I also noticed that your Find A Grave Memorial # 147977804 for Eliza A Burton is a duplicate to my number 1)

I am really sorry for all of the trouble that I have caused. If you would like to do it a different way, let me know.
Thanks for your work and patients.

RE: NaBuda
What I could determine is that she was the 2nd wife of Nick Nabuda who died in 1968. They apparently lived in Memphis, TN. I was not able to locate a marriage to determine her maiden name and/or her 1st marriage as yet, but did determine they married some where probably in the early 1960's, after the death of his 1st wife. Hope this helps!
