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.

Jean L. Roepke
Hi Darrell. Was reviewing some of the graves you maintain at Fairmont Cem. A couple of things. Jean Roepke was born 5 Dec 1937. She is still living. The dates for her mother, Edythe Sperry Roepke are incorrect. The dates on the stone are correct. Edythe was a sister to my grandfather, Glen Sperry.

RE: Ina Cummings
I am not related to Ina Cummings, her husband is a 1/2 cousin. Jacob Whitebread and his 1st wife, Hannah Mumaw, are my 4th great grandparents.

RE: Julie Sutton-Heydorf
The little Rogers boy, first name almost unreadable, but part looks like THEEST or THSEST, which is not a name and I can't think of anything it could be! This is at Shockley his memorial # is 150844474, sure hope we can find out more.

RE: Julie Sutton-Heydorf
That's great that you helped with that project, this is a very nicely kept cemetery, I was worried when I headed out to explore it! I looked to see if there might be one and the same, but never found any. This usually happens with these old country cemeteries, and unfortunately I haven't figured out how to have them combined. Glad there are smart people like you to get things done! Did you see the one I added for the Rogers? What could his name be, do you have those records?

Have been having some problems myself with "bouncing" - don't know if it was the spill on the keyboard or the system! Thanks.

Julia Heydorf
Thanks for letting me know this was a duplicate, I have deleted it. I sure don't like those memorials with hyphens, there is no way by looking at the stone I'd know she was under Sutton-Heydorf!

Find A Grave Memorial# 116171900
Thanks a lot for your contributions to Find A Grave. I believe Find A Grave Memorial# 116171900 is for Garland O. Norris. Garland and family are in the 1910 census in Blue Rapids. The 1920 census shows his wife Belle being widowed.

His daughter, Myrtle A. Norris, is also buried here (Find A Grave Memorial# 107361146). The inscription "11 years 3 months 19 days -
Daughter of CO & B Norris" should read ".. Daughter of GO and B Norris"

Darrell, thanks for setting up a memorial for Mom on Find-a-grave. I would appreciate it if you could transfer management to me. Very thoughtful of you. Thanks so much. Jeff Warders

Martin B. Cole

His widow did return to Ohio. She appears in the 1890 U.S. Veterans Census and in the 1910 U.S. Census, living in Wellington, Ohio (Lorain County), where she died Nov. 30, 1917.

Take a look at Memorial #30195675 for Martin B. Cole. How can he be buried in two places? His invalid(1883) and widow's(1887) pensions were issued in KS. What do you make of this?
