I am with Gerth Funeral Service of Wyaconda, MO.  If you would like to link to our web site, , researchers would be able to contact us for funeral records.  We were founded in 1904 in Wyaconda and have most of the funeral records since that time.  (There was a fire in 1920 that claimed some of the older ones, but we have all of our Wyaconda records since 1919).  Researchers can reach us through that site or E-mail us at   People are also invited to stop by the Memphis location to view our funeral records, free of charge, from M-Saturday, 8-5 p.m.  DO NOT GO TO WYACONDA, ALL THE RECORDS ARE IN MEMPHIS. In addition, we have some cemetery records that the public can use.  Gerth Funeral Service is Clark County's oldest funeral home and is a valuable asset to researchers.  Please direct anyone who wishes to use these records to our web site for information on how to contact us.
Finally, at the Wyaconda Chapel, we have many photos and papers from Wyaconda's past displayed.  They come from the personal collection of Frederick Gerth, Jr., and were obtained from his father (Fred Gerth), grandfather (William Gerth and Dr. Asa Crumley), and uncles (George Baskett and Wade Williams) estates.
