Bio and Links
Bio Photo I moved from the Colorado mountains to eastern Kansas a few years back when my daughter decided on KU for her engineering studies. In searching for new place to call home, I came across a church from the 1880's that sits on the Santa Fe Trail. Converting this church into a home has been an interesting path and along the way, I've learned some of the history of the area.

I was fortunate to be close to my grandparents and have the chance to spend time with them before they passed away. My Grandmother passed on Christmas Day of 2005 and my Grandfather joined her a year later.

My interest in FindAGrave began as I researched family on my grandparents side - and was able to find my great grandparents and even family members 5 generations back from all over the nation! I realized what a powerful tool this website can be!

In joining the FindAGrave team of volunteers, I am learning more of the local history through the names I've documented from local cemeteries. I've been working to update the town's master cemetery list to include additional details from the headstones (such as birthdates, marriage dates, list of children). I hope my work helps others as we search for and document our history.

Kind greetings! Pamela Rene Thompson is my first cousin. Her parents, Wilma # 23281421 & Marion Reed (Pete) Thompson are buried in Snapp Cemetery, Taney MO - It would be wonderful if they could be connected here at Find A Grave. Thank you for all you do for others!

Overbrook Cemetery
Hi, my great grandmother Sarah Hollinger Blocher is listed as buried at Overbrook with several of her children & relatives. I intend to be in Kansas later this year and want to go to the cemetery. When I Google the map to get directions from Topeka what I am finding is a photo of trees without any head stones in it, nothing like in the photo shown on Find A Grave. Can you help me locate Overbrook.

I want to go to Twin Mounds Cemetery before Overbrook and I find it on Google okay.

J B Fairchild
I saw your entry for J B Fairchild (memorial #26531846), he is my 2x's great uncle. Are you related, or are you transcribing the Overbrook Cemetery. If so would you be willing to transfer J B's memorial to me?
Thanks,
Susan Fletcher
