|Bio and Links|
My husband Melvin* and I have been active in our own family genealogies for about 35 years and active in Sumner County, Kansas history and genealogy for almost 30 years. His roots are in the Milan area and mine in the Conway Springs area. We read, recorded and made books for the Milan Cemetery, the Spring Hill Cemetery and the Amish Cemetery in 2000, the Conway Springs Cemetery and the St. Joseph Cemetery in 2002, and the Mulvane Cemetery in 2005. We also enjoy doing lookups from the many transcriptions and databases we have done regarding Sumner County history and families.|
His surnames are SHAFER, SPACE, WATKINS, HALEY, SMITH, WARNER, BUCKINGHAM, DILL, FULLER, PUTMAN.
My surnames are ORR, STINSON, THORP, KNIFFEN, BEST, BALL, SCOFIELD, AUBLE, WALKER, NICHOLS.
I welcome being contacted about any errors found in the records I've posted and I will be happy to transfer ownership of memorials to those who are family members (or closer family members) of the deceased.
*Melvin passed away on April 7, 2009, so I'll be carrying on by myself now. Our first date was on his 15th birthday in 1947 and we were married on May 28, 1950.

Hi Della, I'm having trouble finding marriage and children info for Samuel and Earnest. Edward is not there? He must have moved elsewhere. I assume the others here are their family members... are there any clues in the cemetery? Do you remember how they are grouped, or who is married to whom? Thanks, Julie
|Julie York||George Osterhout|
Hi Della, Thanks so much for transferring George, and for all your genealogy and cemetery work there! I'm trying to link all the family members, who are spread out all over the country. George's paternal line goes all the way back to the 1650's in New Amsterdam (Manhattan), and fought in the Revolutionary War! I appreciate your help! Julie

Thanks, Della, for the links between Mary Mouser & Carrie & Myrtle Vance. Yes, I would like to be the caretaker of Myrtle & Carries memorial sites since you're willing to give them up.
Also, please know how much I appreciate your findagrave efforts to document gravesites & preserve them forever.

|Pit Stop||Myrtle L. Vance|
Hello & thank you for your work on findagrave. I ask if you could please link Myrtle L. Mouser Vance 1896-1921, findagrave memorial #30746774, with her mother, Mary Minerva DeGarmo Mouser findagrave memorial #30457641? Myrtle is Mary's Daughter. I am the manager of Mary's memorial site but am unable to link the two as my choices are only spouses & parents of Mary. Mary's burial plot is next to Myrtle's but has no headstone. Your time would be appreciated.

You're right, it was a typo. I've corrected it now. Thanks, Della.

I've made the link for John to his father, Allen. But when I put in the link for his mother, it came back as a deleted memorial. If you can send me the correct number, I will be glad to add it.

Good Morning Della,
Thank you for the additional information on Hattie J. Bliss, and the transcription of the letter regarding the death of her mother, Aseniath. I have posted them to Hattie's 'Find A Grave' memorial. Also, thank you for adding her photograph.
These are the details that make someone more than just names and dates. You have breathed life into Hattie's memorial and that of her family...making them more three dimensional. For this I thank you.
