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

RE: Lula Bingham, last time

I've sent a separate message to the owner of Guy's Find-A-Grave memorial outlining why I question his marriage too Martha Alida "Tina" HULERY Bingham ... at least as far as my evidence goes. The message I sent outlined my evidence and asked that Find-a-Grave contributor "J" (46897785) to respond with any information that they might have to support the marriage, but I have not yet gotten a reply.

If you wish ... send me an email at:

and I'll forward you the message I sent "J".

Regardless --- I do think that Lula and Guy were possibly separated in the 1950s because I have some residence records (City directories) for Guy during that time period in which he is not listed with his spouse (Lula or otherwise), but since that is just negative evidence it isn't all that convincing one way or the other.

So long story short I do not have any information about a divorce.

Thanks for all your work on this ... I look forward to seeing the obituary.

Take care-Allen

Hope that helps you find her obituary.

RE: Martha & Perry Rush
Thanks for your note. It looks like Perry isn't closely related to Ray. I thought he may be his uncle after I read your note, but it looks like Perry comes from a different branch of the Rush family. Thanks again.

RE: Way family
Yes, and the Kansas City Star. He's quite a character. Walt Way was a principal of one of Topeka's high schools back in the 70s, I believe, but I can't remember which one. And his son Walt was kind of a big shot in Johnson County, Kansas. Read here.

RE: Harold & Myrtle Nelson
HA! Do you remember my big sister Judy Way and her husband Walt? They were also involved in education in Topeka around that time. And Walt's sons (by his first marriage) Bob and Armand Way live there still. Tom in Kansas City, MO
