|Anonymous||Request for photo of Nathaniel Wise Stone|
In 2011, my wife with me tagging along, photographed all the markers in the Americus Cemetery for the Flint Hills Genealogical Society. No photograph for Nathaniel Wise not his wife appeared in the photographs we took. Their names did not appear among the list of names we had for interments in the Americus Cemetery.
Think we could have well overlooked the marker of one or both, I checked the Emporia today to see if there was any record of Nathaniel Wise and his wife.
First, checked the Tombstone Inscriptions for Lyon County, Volume 9 (Americus Cemetery) done by the D.A.R. in or about 1950 (Volume was published February 1951). Nathaniel Wise and his wife names do not appear in the records.
Next checked the index of obituaries for the Emporia Gazette (the local paper). I found the obits for Nathaniel Wise and Kerrenhappuch McDill Wise, his wife.
I got the microfiche film and read the obits. Nathaniel's information appears in the 13 Oct 1913 and 14 Oct 1913 edition of the Gazette. Kerrenhappuch Mc Dill Wise obit is in the 28 Sept. 1915 and 30 Sept 1915 of the Gazette. Both obits state they are interred in the Americus Cemetery.
From the obits on both, I'm surprise there is no memorial stone for either since the D.A.R. did not document the inscription and I could find no other record of their burial including my wife's photographs.
There is a link to the Americus Cemetery from the Flint Hills Genealogical Society website if you wish to look:
If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.
This means a lot . Thank you.

I would! Thank you. I would like to see what is there. The place he was from changed its name in early in the last century.

|Kira McFadden||RE: Edmond's Son|
Yes, I am directly related to Earl Leroy (his great-grand daughter through Clarence DJ McFadden).
Here is the URL to Edward: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=40785348
And Edmond, Earl's father:
I have no information other than that; we've lost a lot of records, and are looking into a claim that an Angus McFadden/McFaddin from Scotland is the patriarch of our line, but I've yet to discover any relation.
It's nice to meet you--thank you for putting this page together!
|Kira McFadden||Edmond's Son|
One of Edmond's sons was Earl Leroy McFadden, who in turn was Clarence DJ McFadden's son. Both of these men, and their spouses and children, are on this Website.
Hi Sharon. Could you please photograph the headstone of Athanasios Stefopoulos at Rose City Cemetery at Portland, Oregon? Thank you .

Hi Sharon, I found a marker for Orville Pershins within the cemetery. I've unfortunately lost the grave marker photos a took when my computer crashed a while back, but I know there are findagravers actively reading the cemetery and adding photos daily. Perhaps you could place a photo request, if you have not already done so. Take care.
