Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from Kansas Farm Bureau and live in Manhattan, KS. I grew up in Blue Rapids, KS., which is about 45 miles north of Manhattan. I belong to the Blue Rapids Historical Society as well as the Marshall County Historical Society. My Marshall County roots go back to 1858 when my Great Great Grandparents settled on the Blue River. I have recently completed research on the Civil War Vets buried at Fairmont Cemetery in Blue Rapids and Prospect Hill Cemetery just north of Blue Rapids. I will be happy to help anyone out on researching graves associated with these cemeteries.

RE: Marvin Allen Goodman

There is a Terri Sager making inquirers about this same memorial. She also would like to do research for memorials in Greenwood in the evening. Library is the only place I know of.
Do they have any evening hours. Frankfort does one evening a week not sure about BR. I'll will leave her message on my board for a few days if you would like to contact her.

RE: O. Gager
Thank you so much Mr Brooks! I very much appreciate your help with this. You can give my email, it is another question I have is do you know where the original Irving cemetery is located?

Irving cemeteries.
Darrell, do you know anything about the original Irving cemeteries? I read there were two, but haven't found anything about them.

Marvin A. Goodman
Do you have any other info about Marvin A. Goodman? I am researching a Marvin Allen Goodman, son of William Ferris (Frank) Goodman and Gladys Gertrude Hanson, who died at approx 2-3 years old from scarlet fever, leaving behind parents and siblings Gladys Maxine, Bertha Marie, Evertt, and Henry. There was also another sibling, Sylvia Mae, but I don't know if she was born yet.

O.Gager memorial 108484975
Dear mr.brooks, I am inquiring about a photo you added of O Gager in greenwood cemetery in blue rapids ks. I believe this to be Owen Philip Gager who would be my 3x great grandfather. Are there any ways to track down cemetery records that could help prove this? The information I have which leads me to this is an 1895 census record that has his family living in balderson ks. If you could offer any information or point me in a possible direction it would be most appreciated. Sincerely Jeremiah Johnson

RE: Thompson Cemetery
Thank you! With your excellent directions, I was able to easily spot it on a satellite view, and have now attached the GPS coordinates to the site.

Thompson Cemetery
Hi - I am working on a project to add maps to all of the cemeteries in Kansas. I have been unable to locate the site of Thompson Cemetery in Marshall County, and since you have taken photos there I hope you will be able to provide me with directions or GPS coordinates. If the cemetery has gone by any other names that would also be helpful to know.

Willey burials
Thanks so much for correcting me on the burial location for Alfred and Joanna Willey! I don't know how I made that one as it clearly states in her obit where she was buried. Thanks again!

RE: George B. Stocks #118857846
Thanks Darrell. I keep getting distracted by finding more branch offs of ancestors as I do this research. I also keep finding ancestors on findagrave that are not linked to anybody and then I feel I have to try and find their families and message the person on findagrave who is maitaining their page so I can get them connected, ya know? It makes me sad when they are all alone.I love doing genealogy research but I think what you guys do going out and taking pictures and researching cemetery's and then creating pages for total strangers is awesome too. I think I would probably really enjoy it. I am disabled and so I can't do that kind of research and I never would have thought it would even interest me but it must be fascinating. I'll be in touch. Take care.
