Ruth Fowler Martin 77059566
Everything looks good for Ruth and her husbands but I wanted to mention a little more on her two sons. Harold owned a small cafe and was murdered by a customer/long-time "friend". I found newspaper articles on the trial (perpetrator was found guilty of first degree). The 2nd son was Edgar Leal Martin (b: 20 Dec 1914 in Kansas and d: 19 Dec 2003 in Topeka). I suspect that he was buried in Mount Hope since the rest of his family was. I can find no record of his marriage or burial. Thought you might want to add him to your "to do" list since he seems to be in your "project area". They are my 5th cousins so they are pretty distant. Thanks in advance for anything you care to do. Paul P.S. Are you familiar with the Baker Book? The Kansas Fowlers and Bairs (and 6 other KS names) are descendants of John Adam Baker (1770-1823) of SW PA. The 260 page Baker Book contains all of his descendants as of 1922 when it was published. I have been updating it and have almost 6000 names. (My father's mother was a Baker). Cheers.

RE: Bonnie/Charles Hiebsch
Hello Cheryl
Thank you, Thank you for the information you found on the Hiebsch's, and the transfers. How wonderful of you to do that for me if you need anything in Oregon I will try to help.
It was most awesome, actually I might need your help again.
Just can't thank you enough, since so many others out there are so selfish, your an asset to Find A Grave.
Have a great day! :)

Hi Cheryl
I would be most grateful for info or obituary you might find for me on Bonnie. I know her parents are Zetta and John Burgoyne, she has two sisters Donna and Edna I believe.
She was born and died in Topica Kansas.
Born Sept 15, 1933...Died July 7, 1999, her husband is Charles E. Hiebsch. I would appreciate any info and transfer.
Thank you for your time

Fowler family in Mt. Hope, Topeka
I am researching a branch of my family that came from Pennsylvania to Kansas. I have strong evidence about the husbands of Louise Fowler (77059415) and Ruth Fowler (77059566)that contradict their memorial pages. Louise Fowler only had one husband, Paul Roote. Ruth, on the other hand, had three husbands: 1. Harry Martin (father of Harold and Edgar Martin); divorce. 2. John Everett (no children) death when Ruth was 52ish. 3. Mr. Reddick (final husband). These are all your memorials and I wanted to give you a heads up that I will be submitting edits for these changes. I will be happy to send you my documentation if you would like. Thank, Paul of Annandale, VA (born in SW PA)

Stephen S. Millared
Hi, um, I am doing a family tree, and I do believe there is an error on Stephens memorial. 30329377, His parents are listed as Levi and Sarah Ann, but that is impossible lol, that would mean Levi was around 70 when he started having children. I believe Levi is Stephen's grandfather, I have Charles Millard and Polly Millard as his parents on Ancestry. You might review it :--) Thanks, Lisa

Hi Cheryl, I can transfer her and you can copy and paste to her bio easier. Always happy to have corrections and more information! I figured it was Gardner, wondered about Estel also. Luella

RE: linking siblings
Thank you. Then it should be in progress. I have added the parents to the children. I didn't know it was automatic.

RE: Lutz and Hermann links
On some memorials, under "family links" there are groups of people" "parents," "spouse" and "siblings." I don't know how to create the "siblings" section. I hoped you might.

duplicate memorials
Your welcome. Its so easy to do. The search engine doesn't always work very well. I have had to remove some also. Thanks for all the work you do on Find A Grave.

Your memorial added in 2011 is a duplicate of one added in 2010. Memorial no 49952023. This is so easy to do as the search engine on here doesn't work very well.

It is maddening sometimes I know. I've tried to find parents when they are listed in obits. Sometimes yes and sometimes no. Have a great holiday.
