Overview of Entrance to Morgan Cemetery


This marker is a dedication to the founders of this cemetery. This grave site was selected by Louis Collins in 1887 as the resting place for this little girl Baby Page who died while her family was traveling through this community."  It is believed to be the first grave in Morgan Cemetery.

My husband is Mike Singleton, son of Con and Flossie Singleton.  Flossie was Hillery and Vera Lakey's daughter.

I have been doing genealogy of Mike's family with his and his brothers permission.  He is interested but doesn't enjoy doing the footwork as much as I do.  We have lost touch will all of his mother's family, since she died so young.  I believe some of Flossie's sisters are probably still living.  Someone is putting flowers on Hillery and Vera's graves.  I would love to meet them.


Thank you for doing this.   The e-mail below is my personal e-mail address.

Thank you so much for providing this resource.  It is very good of you to take the time and effort to work on this site.  I'm sure you have put in a lot of time and I for one appreciate it very much.


I did find two very minor errors in your information though that I would like to give you corrections for.


1.  Velda I. (Irene) Kubala.  Her maiden name was Farrow not Moody. (my half sister).

2.  Winnie D Cooper.  You have Winnie Dee Cooper.  Her middle name was just the letter D no period, it didn't stand for anything just the letter D - (My mother was Lucy "B" Purswell Moody.  The B didn't stand for anything either.  I don't know why my grandparents named the girls that way but that's the way they did.)


Again, thank you so very much for providing this information to everyone!

I have numerous relatives buried in this cemetery.

His name should be Gerry Lemott Holloway. The first name is misspelled. I will appreciate your help in making this correction.

Thank you,
