Hi Diane
Thanks for posting Linda's Memorial page. I am Linda's Brother in Law. I had Planned on creating her memorial but family matters have not allowed the time until now. Seeing that you have already done it, I find no need to do it. Thanks

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

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,
Russ Carter

Hartronft's in Lyons
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?
