Cheryl, I just can't thank you enough for sending me an email to let me know about this new information. He was my 2nd Great Uncle & I had no idea about his tragic accident. Thank you again so much!

Thanks Cheryl for your reply on Anna May Gibbs #67291687. Also thank you for offering to look for an obit for him. If I hear anything from the maintenance individual for Benjamin, I will let you know. Thanks again.

I see on the memorial that a Benjamin McClain is listed as a spouse. Since I see nothing in the obit that you posted regarding this name, am wondering if you have any other information regarding a Benjamin McClain. His memorial then lists her as a spouse, however other records indicate he was married to a Lydia who died in 1898 so did he marry this Anna? Records indicate he did hire a housekeeper following the death of his wife.

RE: Doris Ellen Harvey
Nothing at this time..I have ordered both of their obits from the Topeka Library. I am just waiting for them to come in the mail. I really appreciate all that you have done on Find A Grave. A pleasure to deal with and I am tickled to be bringing my family all back together. I hope all the work and research I am doing now will be a big help in the future to any one in our family doing research. Again, Thanks so much

Lavada (Burrous) Farantelli FAG # 30309480
Thanks so much for the acknowledgment of the links for Lavada's parents. I was researching my Jones family - which two of my maternal aunts married two Burris/Burroughs brothers. While doing my research, my Burris cousin asked if I would do some digging around for connections to her father's family when they lived in and around Pittsburg. So, anytime I can link a family together, I try my best to get all the info in to make the family completed. Lavada would have been a cousin to my two maternal uncles - Floyd and Asa.

RE: Cleo Adkinson Colton
You are welcome. Thanks for the offer, but I'm not related to Cleo. I found the obit while doing other research, so thought I'd share it in hopes it will help someone else out.

RE: David Rhodehamel family
Thank you! Also, David's wife was Susannah Hill and there were many spelling variations of her first name (including Susann, Anna, Susana, etc.). David and Susannah are my 3rd great-grandparents.

RE: Ola Martinson & family
Thanks for the update notice. My grandmother and her three siblings came to Topeka in 1906 and 1907. They were sponsored by their Uncle Ola Martinson. At birth, his last name was Olsson, but after arriving in Kansas, he changed it to Martinson, taking his dads last name. Between Mount Hope and Memorial Cemetery, there are a lot of relatives buried in Topeka. We had a family reunion in Topeka four years ago, and toured both cemeteries. One of our family who still lived in the area, had previously researched the location of the graves and put Swedish flags on them.

Two of my Topeka second-cousins who are still members of the Westside (Swedish) Baptist Church are Karen and Janice Kirby.

I will be updating other relatives info in Findagrave as I get to them.

RE: Anna and Albert Wagoner
That's to bad there are no stones, looking forward to any information you find on the Wagoner family.
Has been exciting finding as Adelbert 'Bert' Wagoner is mt g.g. grandfathers brother. We have never had much information on the Wagoner side of the family.

I have removed the photo...I don't recall why I would have associated that image with that memorial since the name was not on it.

Anna Wagoner
I thought I should contact you with the listed husband for Anna Wagoner(Antje 'Anna' O Bloom).

I believe that Stanley W. Wagoner is actually her son. Her husband is Bert Wagoner(Adelbert 'Bert' Wagoner) and his Memorial # is 76460940.

Stanley's wife is Marie L. O'Harra as shown on their monument pictured.

Was so happy to find some of my Wagoner family!

Thank you so much, Cheryl! I really appreciate all the research you do. I have some Kansas roots too - I lived in Atchison and Kansas City years ago, and my grandmother was born in a homestead sod house in Norton County.

Have a great week, and lots of luck!

Thank you so much for taking such great care of Clara's memorial; she is my 2nd cousin 1x removed and some people don't care for their memorials. I greatly appreciate it. God Bless You!!!!

Sarah Greer Bratten
I didn't send you any documentation for the change to "Byram" in Sarah's name. She was a distant cousin, a descendant of Edward Byram (Find A Grave Memorial# 32517669) and Abigail Byram Collins (# 32440112) They both have some interesting history. It's definitely a family name that was passed down to a lot of descendants, including Sarah. If you follow the family relationship links, You'll find the name Byram.

Thanks very much for your time!

RE: Marguerite Koontz Hall
Hi Cheryl
Would you please correct the spelling of Koontz in the obit. The newspaper had it spelled wrong and I see the spelling is on the memorial. Thanks, Nancy
