Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first started researching my family line in the early to mid 1980s scanning thru many census records to find my father's family. I came across Find A grave years back but could not find any one I was faintly related to. Then just a few months ago I again looked into Find A Grave and there were hunreds of entries. Some I was related to and the people who entered them have transfered them to me. This is a gold mine for genealogists every where. I am no longer able , finacially or physically, able to search cemeteries for other people and take pictures. My roots are in Morris Co., KS as I was born and raised in a town which is no longer an organized town, Dunlap. I spent my life there before entering the Army in 1951. I now live in Lawrence, KS having lived in Dallas for a number of years.

RE: Landon Sowers
Glad I could be of help. I view find a grave as a resource for family tree research, and will post only information I can verify. Hope it assisted you.

Sorry, it showed Ennis on his memorial page but it doesn't show it on the photo request. I did send you 2 edits for Moral Dickerson. His name is spelled MARL and his DOB was incorrect.

Weavers in Berkey
I made the additions and linked the Weavers together. Thank you so much. According to the Social Security death index Lutie was born in 1898.

I have added his parents. This is not a family member of mine but one from a cemetery near my home. Thank you for the suggestion.

RE: FAG memorial 27990626
I did not add this memorial, or the others you duplicated, I was only stating a fact that the memorials you added were already there and you added duplicates (in 2009) to those that were already there.
Are you saying because you have more info. others should remove their memorials?
Does this mean whoever added Find A Grave Memorial# 24142923, 27990548, 27990579 (added in 2008)
should remove theirs? This is between you two. I was only pointing out that there were duplicates.

RE: David Kitterman
Hi John,

You are very welcome and I am glad to help out. As noted with the photo, David actually lies in the Old Jacksonville Cemetery in the town of Floyd, VA. (the town of Floyd, by the way used to be called Jacksonville until the mid to late 1800s. I believe that what is now called the Old Jacksonville Cemetery was originally the Kitterman Burial Ground. There is a "new" Jacksonville Cemetery in Floyd too with interments dating back to the earlier 1800s and I have noticed lots of Kittermans buried there too.

RE: Hannah Kronk
Yes, we could read enough of the headstone to figure out that it was Hannah's. The major problem is that it is very worn. We did clean the stone...I am certified in doing this, so I use a variety of methods. I will go back in about a week to see if the readability has changed. If not, I will try something else. I am not sure that it will help though as the stone is broken and very worn. I took additional photos of the stone including up close ones that often reveal more information. I do believe I have one that I will send to you. I am not at home right now, so it will be in a few days.
