I was born in the same hospital my father was, in Springfield, Missouri. My family roots run deep in American history, most recently (last nearly 200 years) in Missouri.
Several cemeteries in Missouri are on land once owned, and then donated, by my ancestors. Wynn Cemetery, Binkley Cemetery, Cemetery No. 5, & Wolf Creek Cemetery are among them in SW Missouri.
My late parents left me their nearly 5 decade long genealogy project to continue. Findagrave.com has been invaluable help with this.
