RE: Henry Kuykendall, 91562990
Hi, Cheryl!!

Thank You for your help and kind offer!

I just recently have been able to spend time on making connections in my genealogy research, further, on the Kuykendall family (my biological backgroung - I was adopted).

Apparently, many of them were amongt the original settlers in New York / New Amsterdam in their trip to the "new world" from the Gelderland province in the Netherlands. They then migrated to Pennsylvania and Virginia on to Indiana and Oregon, then, to California, Kansas, and Texas! at least are the main localities to which I've traced many of the family.

HOW EXCITING it all is to me!!! :) I may be requesting further edits, if you have further memorials of Kuykendalls and their kin.

Please let me know if there's ever anything I can help with in return for your kindness!! :)

Hope you have a wonderful rest-o-the-weekend! :)

RE: Floyd & Beulah Stoner Infield
Thank you very much. I was rechecking my tree and didn't find their names in it. Maybe I stumbled upon them while looking for other family members, but we're not related to Floyd & Beulah Stoner Infield.

My husband is related to the Stoner family line through his Nelson family line.

Good--that you found it, but sounds like sad news.

Asher DeBow
Hi Cheryl,
I noticed there is a duplicate for Asher DeBow in Mount Hope Cemetery, the one you added and the one I added. If you would add the additional info and links from mine to yours, I would then delete the memorial that I added.

Thanks and much appreciated. Keep up the excellent work.

RE: Erman W Taylor obit at # 162672032
Dear Cheryl,
thankyou for the prompt reply. I don't manage the cenotaph for Erman, but I will be glad to submit the edit request to post his obit with the current managing contributor. BTW, I like what you have to say on your contributor page.
Best regards

re: Erman W Taylor obit at # 162672032
Hello Ms White,
I'm a distant cousin of Erman's wife Violet June Meisman Taylor. It would be greatly appreciated if you would request that Erman's obit also be posted in his bio at his cenotaph memorial .

Otherwise, if you prefer and with your permission I can copy/paste the obit you posted and make the request myself to the cenotaph memorial manager, Terri Hobbs.

Again, thankyou for your recent discovery of Erman's grave; attention and time.
PS: Please reply if needed on my message board

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.
