|Bio and Links|
|I've written and published two family history books and the history of Berryton for its 1986 Centennial. |
I have just finished going through three books about Topekans in 1905, 1934 and 1956 for the third time. They were WHO'S WHO and BUILDERS OF TOPEKA. Also, I'm adding bios from WHO'S WHO IN THE WORLD, 1912. There are still many biographies that need to be added, once their tombstones are copied. I'll put the books away for another year and go back and try to find some more.
About 25 years ago, the local historical society put all the Shawnee County marriage applications up to 1913 on microfilm. They discarded the originals and allowed persons to take names of those they recognized. I gave my old mailman about 50 and he delivered them to people in our township. I have given away hundreds of them. I still had some left over, so I put them on FAG.

Joanie, I added the 1967 obit for Corliss Hathaway in Mount Hope. Hope there's something in it that will help you track down your lost classmate.
Your bio for Elizabeth Kraus has been posted. Sorry it took so long. My computer was in for repair.

I noticed you had left flowers on Elmer's memorial page with a note indicating he was your uncle. My husband, Randy Frederick, remembers going to Elmer's house as a child. Clara, Elmer's wife, was Randy's great aunt. Do you have any information on Elmer and Clara's progeny and, if so, would you be willing to share?

Thank you for sending the obituary.

There seems to be a typo in one line of the obituary you sent:
"She lived in Topeka from 1917 to 194, and spent the rest of her life in the Garnett area."
In what year did she move from Topeka to the Garnett area???
Thank you for the obituary. I was able to link his first wife, also. Blessings of the season to you and yours!

Thanks for the info, Joanie. I've added it to her page. Next week when I'm back at the library I'll look up the obit for her husband, G. Corliss Hathaway, who died in 1967.
