Information about Linkville, Missouri
- Hello People,
You've not heard from me in a while, there are reasons, but I
need help now! I am
helping a friend of mine, locate a family cemetery on a piece of
property that is now a
farm near the present town of Linkville, Missouri. He's lost, but I
am more informed about
such things, from working at a cemetery in my past! I suggested he
look in his local in his
county recorders division, the county surveyors office, the county
roads division, plus any
railroad or steamship lines that might have ran close to the property.
I also suggested, since his great great grandfather died in Kansas
City in 1903, that some
of their records could be of some use, as in a referrence. What I am
looking for, from
some of your readers is, does anyone know of any monument companies
in that area, any
funeral homes that were in existance before 1910, any church members
that were sons or
grandson's of men who dug graves before that timeframe & anyone that
may be a long
standing family during the time of the mid 1860's to say around 1920!
I know this is a lot
of material to cover & right now I just got this information tonight,
so bear with me, but I
am on a quest now to help this guy & I need any little scrap of
information you might
know of that could pertain to this.
I am also looking for anyone who knows anyone who has a metal
detector in the Platte
County area. I know this is a long stretch, but anything would help.
Thanks for your time reading this & if you have any questions, you
can e-mail me directly
at my e-mail address above, but in the subject line, put Linkville
Missouri on it, so I don't
accidentally erase it thinking its junk!
Thanks again, Jim Greene/Pleasant Hill, Missouri
