I send a big THANK YOU to all contributors, your efforts are a tremendous help to family history researchers around the globe.
Mom and Dad passed on family history they learned from their parents. I am honored to continue their love for family history and pass it on to my kids and beyond.
The above photo includes some of my family names. I am descended from numerous pioneer families when West Tennessee and the Missouri Bootheel were wild lands. My earlier ancestors originated from VA, NC, DE, MD, PA, SC, GA, Native American, English, Scottish, Irish, French, Swiss and German, that I know of.
The dates on some photos I have posted may be hard to read, click on the photo to view a larger image.
Currently researching Bailey / Bailee / Baily family in Missouri Bootheel, searching for parents of Mary Louisa Bailey, born 11-27-1874/75, married James Cullen "Jim Corn" Baker. She may have been known as Mary Lou or Lizzie. Possible father Daniel Baily, born 1849, widowed on 1880 census. Can anyone confirm this?
THANKS for any assistance.
Have fun researching your family history!
In the hope to prevent duplication of TIME, EFFORT and MEMORIALS, below are updates of Cemetery Recordings.

Dad & I photographed all readable markers and numerous markers which are now unreadable with the passage of time. Memorials and photos have been loaded on the website.
LIBERTY CEMETERY, Caruth, MO

I photographed all the headstones and created memorials on the website, click on Request A Photo button if you would like a photo. Sadly about 30 headstones are so eroded the data and inscriptions are difficult to decipher, some are missing names, others are missing dates.
OAKLAWN CEMETERY, Jacksonville, FL

Completed all Sections over a 2 year period. There were additional interments every week during those 2 years, as well as since then. Unfortunately, I am not able to record additional interments, perhaps I can at some point in the future. If you are visiting Oaklawn Cemetery in search of family, I have a map of the various Sections, send an email to request the map, or stop by the cemetery office, they are nice people. If you haven't already thought of your final resting place, I encourage you to plan ahead, it is the best way to keep your family together for all time.
