|Bio and Links|
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.|

Thank-you for the information. I'll send an email today. Thanks again.

As a member of the Blue Rapids Historical Society, would you know what papers were in circulation in April 1900.
I currently have an obituary clipping for the above memorial but no date or newspaper.

I think you have corrected now. It was the wrong Clarence Stiles. As for Florella, I think there were two graves listed for her. The 1845 is the correct DOB. let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for your help.
|Southwood||2nd wife on Find a grave but not first|
Excuse me, Sophia Dolde gravesite is on Find A grave, but not the first wife Kuehne.
|Southwood||Several children died young|
Yes, there are at least 5 unmarked Grabhorn
graves in that cemetery. There were several
children that died young by different grabhorns.
No one has ever put the graves of the 2 wives of
George Herman Grabhorn on the internet. Those
would also be a good to find. Could be in
Kansas or Indiana.
|Southwood||Yes, correct on FW & VR grabhorn|
Yes, that is correct. I added the edit request today.

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our 'old soldiers" that had roots/ties to Vermont.I see that you have contributed several monument/markers to the Find a Grave memorials of a few of these patriots in Marshall County. There may be others that I haven't discovered yet. May I use these photo's to post on the Vermont C.W. site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)
You will certainly receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Darrell... Thanks. Very interesting story about Joshua.
|Kathy Cox||RE: Mary Jo Logue Johns|
Hi Darrell! Thanks for replying to me. I dabbled with family ancestry over 30 years ago but then joined active duty Air Force and was unable to continue it. My father gave me my Grandpa's WWII Army jacket and we already had my husband's mother's marine uniform from WWII. I wanted to display them with honor so checked into a shadow box for them. I started to research the medals, patches, insignias that they would have had and a little history on their duties. This led me back into ancestry again and it has been a real lesson in family history. I feel very humbled and honored. I would love to keep in touch and share stories; however, I am very new to this and have much to learn. William Henry Johns would be the husband of my 2nd Great Aunt.
I live in Brookfield, Ohio. Retired from the Air Force in 2013 and work civil service now. So, sorry to say I do not live near the cemetery. I was trying to find information on the cemetery being vandalized and came across some information that might answer your questions about Joshua Johns. Very interesting stories are found in our searches... but sad that this guy's life ended so early. Scroll to Joshua P. Johns and you will see that there is a marker in place for him at Basswood but he is actually buried at Antietam National Cemetery Grave #3327, Maryland. I guess... if you think of the times... and this... I guess I am surprised... when I searched for information it says this was the bloodiest battle in American History. I guess I thought Gettysburg would have been.
Hope this gives you some information. My Great Grandmother was Julia R Logue; sister to Cynthia and Mary Logue who were married to William Henry. Mary died at the age of 21. William later married her sister.
