Another 5 cemeteries visited today. Last week I made my first attempt at photographing an entire cemetery, the Elliot Cemetery in Stoddard County. I uploaded them all...and wow, what an undertaking. But it was worth it, one of those pictures may someday be invaluable to someone else researching thier family history.

I added another family photograph to the Family Photo's link. These are my two of my paternal 3rd great-grandparents.
I have plans on attempting to photograph an entire cemetery soon. I have been wanting to do it for awhile knowing that uploading it would undoubtedly help someone discover part of thier own family history. I just need to decide on which one.

Returned to Cruse to search again. Thanks to the astounding memory of my 94 year old great aunt, I was able to locate them in an overgrown part of the cemetery. After this, my grandmother and I went to Sikeston, Missouri, where we visited Garden of Memories, where her parents and my biological grandfather are buried. After lunch, we headed to Charleston, MO to the Clara Drinkwater
Newnam Library. There we went through thier Genealogy section and looked for relations. My grandmother has an amazing memory. We had a fantastic time and plan to do it again soon.

Visited Cruse, Pleasant Hill, Pleasant Grove and Morgan Memorial Park. I searched for three relatives in Cruse but were unable to locate them there, even though I have several sources stating that is where they were buried. I added flowers for Memorial Day at Morgans. I found all the relatives I was searching for at Pleasant Hill, and just drove to Pleasant Grove to check it out.
