HELTON CEMETERY, GOLDSBERRY, MACON CO.

I have been told by Marilyn Freeman (Callao, MO D.A.R.) that someone visited the Helton Cemetery and compiled a complete listing of names and locations of the graves from the existing markers. This listing is said to have been type written, and placed in the Macon Co. Library Genealogy Room.

I have tried to locate this information, but cannot. If it does indeed exist, we would be interested in acquiring a copy.

July 6, 2009:

To bring you up to date on the progress of the Atlanta & Community Sesquicentennial book, Mr. Gardner met with three of the committee this past week. We reviewed the progress of the book and made arrangments for him to pick up the disc in two weeks.

When we began writing the book we were not aware that it would be cost prohibitive unless it was put on discs. Merlyn Amidei and I retyped the entire book and are now in the process of putting it on discs. Merlyn and her husband, Joe, worked several hours last evening.

Mr. Gardner advised us that it would take approximately 2 l/2 - 3 months for the publishing company to complete their work after he picked up our discs. He was pleased with the material that he reviewed.

We also want to assure everyone who purchased a book there are two lists of individuals who purchased books, one kept by me and one by Treasurer Dena West. Also an account was set up immediately at the Macon-Atlanta State Bank.

Dena Ayers


The book is much larger and better than we ever dreamed when we started it.

We have heard from "old" friends from all over the country with roots in Atlanta wanting to have their family histories included. This along with the weather has slowed us, but it makes for a much better book.

We hope to complete the book by Spring.

I would like to quote from one family (second generation) who came from Sweden and Denmark. "Our family lived in the era of the great depression and we learned to live frugally and to know how to work, but we also learned to be thankful for our blessings and to be thankful to be Americans."

This lady is 86 years old and the only one of eight children living.

That paragraph is just for your information, but several have made similar remarks.

The main thing is that we need more orders for books.

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the KentuckyGenWeb project. This grew into the USGenWeb project, and eventually the WorldGenWeb project. At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page.

If you would like to volunteer for a county in Missouri, contact
Larry Flesher, State Coordinator for MOGenWeb.


If you are interested in a particular county of a state that does not have a county page and you wish to be responsible for it, please contact Tina S. Vickery, USGenWeb National Coordinator.
