Bio and Links
Bio Photo I hope that my entries aid you in finding your family! My PRIMARY INTENT is to get the information up from the stones & records for those that haven't found the burial spots of their loved ones and to preserve information from these stones. Please note, many are put up from cemetery is. I'm aware that there are many errors in these records, but I rarely make assumptions as to proper spelling, etc. with the exception of death month which is often based on interment date. Generally speaking, I do not research each memorial. If you add something to one of my memorials, please notify me through the edit tab so that I can update the memorial.

Any photos I have posted are gifts - free for family or friends to use as you please for non-commercial purposes. I would be happy to transfer any of your relative's memorials I have created that are unrelated to me - please let me know the relation. I'd prefer they be with someone in their family or someone with a connection to complete a more fitting memorial! I have also assumed responsibility for many memorials from inactive/deceased contributors so just because they've been transferred to me doesn't mean they are my relatives.

I'm human, I make mistakes. If you find some, please use the edit button on the memorial to advise me. Patience is a virtue - I am not retired and have young children, but will address emails as soon as I can.

A special THANK YOU to those who visit my family. I TRULY appreciate it - it means the world to me!:

~~ My beloved father & my hero James Robert Hoffman ~~

My cousin Francis Nicholas Hueben, MIA shot down over New Guinea in WWII.

My cousin Donald Michael Willy, killed WWII.

After 35+ years of research, I finally found:

My GG-Grandfather Gustave "Gus" Werner in May of 2012 as well as his twin baby girls and 2 more of his baby granddaughters. (thanks to FindAGrave & J F-B)

My GGG-Grandparents Joseph Newby and his wife Letitia Hastie (Dark) Newby in August of 2012 (good old fashioned research).

Another GG-Grandfather William Lewis Horn found March 6, 2013 going through old funeral home records. Cemetery records were not available for June 1, 1914 to October, 1920. He died June 15, 1914. Go figure! :)

My GG-Grandmother Jessie Fremont Lane Nelson in January of 2014. (thanks to a FindAGrave friend Mixmastermom)

~ My FaG Projects: ~
I'm currently working on photographing & documenting burials in (primarily) 4 Wyandotte County, KS cemeteries. ***Please note - Month is often interment month.

*** Mount Hope - ALL memorials from cemetery records are posted.
*** Quindaro - ALL memorials from cemetery records are posted.
*** Woodlawn - ALL memorials from cemetery records are posted.
*** Oak Grove - Just getting started. About 10% of memorials are posted.

I also do some work in Memorial Park, Highland Park, Chapel Hill, St John's & Mt Calvary & anywhere else in the area that the wind blows me that day. :)

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Thank You
Hi Kim,
Thank you so much for the Ellis transfers. On the memorial for Silas Earl Ellis 105453134, you entered marker transcription: n Warnick 7-16-1964. I am wondering what this means? The date is two days after his death date.

Thank you,

"The researcher ever get the list for you? There are no Scroggs' listed in the cemetery records so I can't help you. There are 5 Scruggs' though."

No, he did not. I forgot about it and he retired or was replaced. I count 7 Scruggs. The mausoleum clearly says "Scroggs". Another mystery?

Hello! Thanks for the edits you sent for Laura Patton ( Cemetery records had no information on her beyond the plot number, so your contributions are really appreciated. Are you by any chance closely connected to her? I'm very happy to make transfers to family members and close friends.

RE: Joseph M Cahill
Thanks, I will take care of Joseph M Cahill and his family. I will go back to the memorials and request transfers. Thank you for all of your work. I know that it takes a lot of time and I appreciate it very much.

RE: Rebecca Sides Hoffman 142023279
Is there any way you can post the DC on her page or email it to me? I don't know how else to see it. Also, Gracie and I would be so grateful if you could confirm she is buried in Forest Hill. Thank you so much for your input.

Sincerely, Vickie

Hi Kim, Gracie asked me to ask you what proof you had for stating that Rebecca died in Jackson Co, KS and not in Wyandotte Co, KS? Thank you for offering info to help.

Sincerely, Vickie
