44552914 John Handley Wilma, My math indicates John would have be born in 1787. 1865-78=1787. Would you check and see if 1777 was correct. My 2nd gg was Sarah Elizabeth. She married Callaway, 2nd gg. Thanks
If you go to the Department of Kansas SUVCW website at suvcwks.org then click on the Sunflower Picket on the left column then click on the Fall 2014 issue, you will find a brief entry on the Nickelson headstone dedication in Garnett. Thanks for letting us be a part of it.

I am Becky Schovanec, daughter of Bea and Leonard Schovanec, great granddaughter to Marie Zeman Semrad. Lillian Handley's children would be my second cousins. Not sure if you are related through marriage or birth, but in case that helps make the connection for you, I thought I would include it.
Last year, during some extensive research in the Prague and Kutna Hora Archives (Czech Republic), I located a copy of Marie's birth and baptism records. The date recorded there was 7 Nov 1867.
I have many other records on the Semrad side -- not sure if you are interested in anything, but if you are please let me know!
RE:Henry Dodge Hall Dear Wilma, In all of my research of Reason and Martha, I never came across a child born to them named Henry Dodge Hall, but am fascinated by this new information. He would have been b.in Bureau Co., Ill., right & eldest child ? I can be more forgiving if this is a son of Reason & Martha Hall's rather than a wife of Lark's. Thank you so much. With All Sincerity, Kathie L.Webb Blair, Portland, OR
Sarah Mcgraffin Wilma, If you are related you might want to contact the cemetery to get this corrected. Sarah is listed in all their records as Sarah McGriffin. Also she does not have any marker. I will be placing a picture to reference where is is resting at. CRob
Eva Feehan I updated her memorial but I also transferred her to you. Please note in the near future I will no longer do corrections and transfer requests off of messages on my Find A Grave bio page, instead please use the Edit button in the upper right corner of the memorials and submit that way (if you want a copy of the addition/correction/transfer request please click the check box to send yourself a copy of the request). The site has gotten too big apparently and the messages pages are flaky to load, sometimes I have to reload the page several times to get it to come up and since the volume is such that I now have to access several pages to read all the recent messages it is no longer a reliable means of requesting transfers or changes.
