I am adding obits as time permits. If you happen to find one, let me know the date (I use Southeast Missourian) and I will get it into the Bio section as soon as I receive your message. Otherwise, they are on my to do list. Thank you. I do appreciate all your help when sending messages and/or edits.

Just finished all of Memorial Park Cemetery Dec 8, 2019 to get all stones from 2017 to present. Tombstones prior to 2017 have already been put on by either myself or someone else.

Finished Union Park Cemetery in Chaffee, MO June 2018.

My cat nephew is #206574033, only one I've added so for.

Bio update 2018
Regarding burial locations: I only submit edits on locations I've actually been to or researched. I want to thank the members who change the burial locations when I submit an edit. For those who won’t change the location but strictly go by the newspapers and assume the county the cemetery is in: those papers aren’t always correct and your assumption isn’t either. You are doing a disservice to the family, friends and fellow contributors who are trying to locate the deceased when they end up going to the wrong cemetery. Some of these loved ones, whether I know them or not, should be put to the correct cemetery.

Some counties have the same cemetery names (Memorial Park comes to mind) and others have cities that can be considered in two counties (Advance is in Stoddard county but you can have an Advance address and be in Cape Girardeau County) so be considerate for those of us who go out to the cemeteries and find the stones. An example: Fairview in Advance is what it says in the papers. I called up a funeral home in Advance to find out if there is a Fairview in Stoddard County in Advance. There is not one, he referred me to the Fairview in Cape County (city pulls up Arbor-correct). I grew up living in Cape County while having an Advance address. So, I can speak from experience of knowing what is going on with Fairview. And please, don’t disable your messages or ignore our request after we submit an edit on this. We are only trying to help, not get the most memorials added to our names.

(original bio)
I was born and raised in Cape Girardeau County MO. I moved away from the area in Dec 1986 and came back in 2009. I am mainly interested in researching my Thoma and Roberts family trees. I am branching out in the Barks, Illers, Sievers, Byrds and Johnson ancestors more now.

If I have a memorial that is your family member and not mine, I will be happy to transfer them to you. If it's a friend of yours, I'll transfer those too. Make sure you let me know your member # so I can get it transferred to you. You can use any of the pictures I put out there too.
