Just recently visited the Culbertson/Marshall Cemetery in Collins, MO (St. Clair Co, MO) to bury my Uncle Louis Culbertson, son of Joe Durl and Patricia Culbertson (Joe and Patricia are my grandparents). I had not visited the cemetery (because I did not know how to find it) since I was 17 and my granparents died (in Dec 1997 and April 1998).
I took many photos of the headstones that I will be posting on my blog, I found the following website which lists the names of 136 people buried there:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GScid=28289 I will also be adding the photos there.
I was hoping for more back stories of those buried in the cemetery. It is a family cemetery shared by the Culbertson and Marshall families, I would love to know if those families merged at some point (I assume so since they share a cemetery together). Basically I am wondering if I am somehow related to all of those burried there. The oldest readable tombstone dated back to 1777 (as a birth date, death date listed was 1816). Especially interested in if there are any Revolutionary/Civil War/WWII Vets burried there. I know my grandfather (Joe Durl) was a WWII Vet
I also have a family history book published in the 1960's that traces my grandfathers family back through his paternal mother's bloodline (The Strickland Family). I have many pictures from that book located here:
Familt straces back to 1600's, says the family name Strickland appeared as early as 1235 but no way to trace if those were relatives or not.
There are letters said to have been written by John T. Strickland from the battlefields of the civil war, he died on his way home, he never made it back. Would love to know if these are authentic and to find anymore information/relatives out there.
