I am a retired Tech Lab teacher in middle school. I enjoy genealogy and creating photo album pages of grandkids. I especially enjoy taking pictures of headstones. Cemeteries are lovely, peaceful and quiet.
PLEASE use the edit button to request transfers and make changes/additions to memorials. Thank you.
Also, since I take a large number of cemstone photos, it is time prohibitive to clean them, especially the older ones, before taking a pic. I will be glad to retake any photos upon request.
AND, I would really appreciate any email communication to include the memorial numbers of the person(s) to whom you are referring. It is so time consuming (and open to error) to find names using the search tool.
Charles Frederick Foreman Memorial # 150111439 Mae, I know where my cousin,Fred was buried. His dad & my dad were half-brothers. His urn was buried in Prospect Hill Cemetery, rural Blue Rapids, Marshall County, Kansas next to his parents Homer & Geraldine Foreman. His wife died in Feb 2016. Her urn will be buried next to Fred on May 1, 2016. I plan to attend the services. You did a wonderful job on Fred's bio and know you will on his wife, Melba's as well. Keep up the good work. I remain, Lova Fincham Kraft in Abilene, Kansas
RE: W. Brickell 120141393 That was great what you did. I had actually sent you an edit to do that. You may have not seen it. If you look on your profile page under your name at the top, you will see edits. I don't have the dates for Lucretia Miser Brickell or where she is buried. My guess is she died between 31 Jan 1855 after her daughter was born and 8 Jul 1856 when George Brickell remarried to Sarah Jones. My guess was she was buried in the same cemetery where her parents and most siblings were buried. Her two small children lived with Lucretia's parents after she died. Thank you for your help.
Caroline Head Axe #95883337 Hi Mae, I see you've done some extensive research into Henry and Caroline Head Axe and was wondering if you were related. I descend from Caroline's brother, Jesse, and have a few old Xeroxed copies (barely legible) written by my 2x great grandmother. I also have digital copies of photos from Kansas that are unidentified. Are you in touch with someone who could help with the identifications? Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time and great efforts you're adding to this site.
I am trying to find information as to Homer Potts. He is buried near my Great Grand Parents, John W. & Jennie L. Potts, with a similar marker/stone. My Grandfather, Harry G. Rediker had made the stones for John W & Jennie L. Potts, as well as William LeRoy Potts, which signals me to believe Homer is somehow related. I have called the curator of the cemetery, and he does not have any information on the Homer Potts grave. His death/burial was before the cemetery kept records. If you have any information regarding Homer Potts, please contact me.
RE: Koenig children Margueretha Koenig #134601077 Thanks for going the extra mile here. I think Margueretha is part of the Koenig family at Crown Hill Cemetery in Colorado but I can't prove it. Since she lived 1911-1913, she doesn't appear in any of the 10-year federal censues. Also, it appears that there are some other Koenig families in the Bethlehem Cemetery so she could be part of one of those families. There are 3 trees of this family on ancestry.com. They all list an unidentified girl...no names given, unfortunately. Thanks again for your kind efforts and the photos are great.
