My email has changed since prior messages were posted. It is now and I live near Sikeston, MO.

William Fountain Burton is the one who married to Francis Kizzy Atkinson. He is buried in the Cemetery at Cardwell, Dunklin Co, MO. She is buried in a cemetery in Blytheville, AR, with very few stones and hers is gone.

Richard Freeman Finney and Mary aka Mollie Caroline Atkinson are buried in the Lester Cemetery south east from Denton, MO with fields surrounding it. Also, their son Sidney Augusta Finney and a daughter of Sidney, Mary Francis Finney is buried there in Lester's. They lived at Holland, MO.

I am trying to locate information on a son of Sidney and Anna Mae BURTON Finney. His name is Oliver Roscoe Finney. He was born in Virginia Twp, Pemiscot Co, MO 21 Sep 1919. He died in Chicago IL 13 Feb 1960. He was married to a girl with Beulah as her given name. I need her surname, marriage date and place. They had a few children, but unknown how many or where they are at now or if they are living or dead. Need their names and info.

Oliver either fell from a barstool or was knock off a barstool in a tavern and he died instantly. At least that is what I have been told about him.

Any info is much appreciated. The man is an Uncle of my husband, Charles aka Sonnie Carmack. Thank you & regards.
