Currently I am researching my family tree and looking for surnames: Hanover, Hanold/Hannold, Hunter, Lape, Prouty, McGeehon, Lundy and Lamar located in the Lake County, IN-Vermilion County, IL-Fountain County, IN-Warrick County, IN, White County, IL, Mahaska County, IA, Republic County, KS and Cass County, NE. |
Genealogy is like putting together a puzzle. Sometimes the pieces fit and sometimes they do not. If any information in my memorials are incorrect, please let me know.
Most of my memorials are connected to my family in some way. (Agenda Cemetery is an exception.) If someone has a closer relationship to one of my memorials, I would be happy to transfer.
My husband and I took a road trip to Agenda, Kansas looking for my Hunter ancestors. The cemetery we visited had a listing of people buried there. I took a photo of that list and I am debating on recording this cemetery. I normally do not add memorials on people who are not connected to my family. So if you are looking for burials in Agenda Cemetery, Agenda, Rebublic, KS let me know and I can do a lookup.
Update: I am listing the Agenda Cemetery. Findagrave has been a tremendous help to me in my genealogy research. Hopefully, by listing this cemetery, I will be able to assist someone in their search.

|Tim Taylor||Hans George Hannold|
Hans George Hannold is my 5th Great grandfather also, I trace my line down through Isaac Hannold. It is nice to find family, and this time it was not on facebook. BY the way, I grew up in Indiana in Lake and Porter counties, still have family living there. What is your line down from Hans?
I see you have Phoebe McVay's parents listed as John McVay and Elizabeth Parson Smith.
Do you have any documentation for this?
Her brother George McVay is my 2nd great grandfather, and I have not been able to find anything documenting who his parents were.
Thank you for posting all of this.

I found an OCR version of The Belleville Telescope, in which I found a couple of fragments of info about this train wreck and these three men. Here you go:
The Belleville Telescope, 7 Aug 1930
(Headline) Cause of Wreck Said To Be "Sun-Kink" In Rails, Resulting From Extreme Heat of the Day — Train Crew Uninjured — Cars of Grain Are Piled Up and Track Is Badly Twisted — Depot Might Have Been Destroyed.
(Portion of Page 1) Three men were killed and two were injured when Rock Island freight number 994 ditched fourteen cars at Agenda Sunday afternoon. The dead were unidentified, but according to the two injured companions, had been employed by the Sells-Floto circus, which played at Smith Center Saturday.
(Portion from Page 4) Identification of the three men killed in the freight train wreck at Agenda Sunday was believed to have been made late yesterday, according to Bachelor & Faulkner, undertakers, who have been following clues which might lead to identify since the accident Sunday. A membership card of Moose Lodge, No. 3, Chicago, was found in a bloody pocket which had been torn away from the clothes of one man. The card bore the name of Fred Kingsley, which is considered tentative identification. Geo. 0. Faulkner made a trip to Agenda again yesterday and in a second search of the death scene he found parts of an old coat, a pocket of which contained an express receipt bearing a name and address, Myron Lee, Osawatomie, Kan. This tallied with other information which had been previously gathered. The third man was identified as George Palenkas, Mansfield, Ohio, from information obtained through the Sells-Floto circus with which he had been employed.

I just sent you SACs on these three men -- who were all killed in a train wreck in 1930.
Curiously, their shared grave is in the farthest northeast corner of the cemetery, tucked between the driveway and the fence. No wonder there had been no photo of it before!
