Bio Photo Photo Takers: please do not use flour and chalk and other previously accepted methods that actually damage old stone; please read these hints for using tin foil, and for correct lighting to reveal hard to read stones:

Please have compassion for others and if you cannot reply in a positive way, then don't reply at all.

My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer Nov. 2014, his memorial # 139923728.

We are all fighting our own private battles and don't need the negativity. If I don't thank you promptly, please don't be harsh. I always thank volunteers as soon as I can.

Please be kind in your messages to everyone on the site.

I will put in a blanket THANK YOU here for all who do my edits/corrections; I submit too many edits and corrections to open and reply to each one, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and effort in doing them.

I am a member of and have had my DNA analysis completed, which connected me to many, many relatives, both close and distant cousins, and many I have made connections with. It also enabled me to find additional relatives on my tree because we are linked by our DNA. My personal heritage shows Great Britain and Ireland as my distinct lineages.

** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area (Garland, Sachse, Caddo Mills, Celeste) since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon/Elledge/Boone) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in both my maternal Brandon (Edward 'Neddie') and also my paternal Conley line (Daniel & Edward's brother George W), and there is also a Lincoln connection I am sorting out because they all lived near to each other.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

Thank you for the information. I read with interest the story of her husband, Charles Goodnight which led me to look her up in the Park City, Montana High School Yearbook. The photo I posted was of her entire class, so I cropped her from the rest as best I could. I also found information on Ancestry which I included.

Photo/edit request Gaby Smith
I enlarged the photo at home and have sent an edit request to update the memorial page. She is MARY SMITH wife of Henry Carbino. Mary nee Smith Carbino. She reportedly had been ill from a long and painful disease, and had resided in Eau Claire about 10 years according to her brief obit. It appears she and her husband were from N.Y. and he was running a restaurant in a local hotel. The 1880 census she appeared to be age 41 and her husband is 36. Her husband Henry served with Co C N.Y. Inf. as a Private during the civil war. Henry may have left the Eau Claire area about 1908 as his G.A.R. membership there was transferred.

Graves on Old Fellowship
The two pictures you requested - James Means and Thomas Means, I think are there. There is a James Biggers Mobley Means who died on February 7, 1863, age 2 years and 4 months - I think this is the James you are looking for. The Thomas Coalter Means who died on December 14, 1863 at 5 years and 10 months, i think that this is the Thomas Means you are looking for.
