|Mayflower Pilgrim 332||Carl Ludvig Hartilious "Charlie" Engstrom|
Good Afternoon, Thanks for excellent research on Charlie Engstrom & his marriage & children. I wish a tombstone had been placed at his gravesite. It could have saved a great deal of confusion over his name. Richard
|Russ Carter||Lyons Municipal Cemetery|
I was wondering if you knew when Lyons Municipal Cemetery was first opened and if there are actual burial records that go back that far or if there are only headstone transcriptions to know who was buried there.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the information. Elsie was my grandmother (I am one of the 5 grandchildren mentioned in the obit). Arch of course was one of Walter's brothers; Arch and Elsie lived at 309 E Ave. S, which I think was two houses down from where Bess (Avonelle or Avinell) Hartronft Childs lived on the corner nearer to the square.
I remember "Auntie Neva" but don't remember where they lived. Also I don't have her maiden name.
Walter was born in Naperville Ill and lived in various west Kansas towns before settling in Lyons. I have a gap from 1930 when he was living in Dodge City to 1951 when he was living in Lyons. Do you happen to know when Walter moved to Lyons?
|Cathy Kessinger||Walter N Harris|
hi, Sorry, I don't know if Walter has a headstone at Bean Cemetery. I don't live locally so can't check. Good luck! Cathy
|DSH||Melvys Eugene Bishop|
Diane: Do you have any information I can add about Melvys' short life? Were his parents visiting Kansas when he was born, or were they living in Kansas at the time? How are his father Hiram and Gardner related? Thanks for the correction you suggested.

|Verl Manwarren||Additional information|
I have been working on my family history for forty or fifty years. I have seen many of your entries for Find a Grave. If you would like, I would be glad to send you information on many Rice County families: Manwarren, Myers, West. others. If you would like, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Valice Raffi||John and Minnie Lantow|
Thank you for giving me the links for John. I'm not related to them, could I transfer them to you?
|John Campbell||Alexander Lantow|
The list of children of Alexander Lantow should include John Lawrence Lantow 1892-1966. He was my grandfather and the brother of Edith, Golda, Marjorie and Dale. Thank you.
John L. Campbell

After looking at all the hard work you have put into researching Rice County and its people, I thought that it would be better if you had this memorial. You are the one that took his gravesite photot. I am mainly just interested in finding all of the graves of WWII Kansas dead and missing. I am not too concerned about ownership.
Thank you for all you do on Find-A-Grave!!!
