Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.
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. We were married on May 28, 1950.

Hi Della.. I just wanted to let you know that I've deleted my memorial for Os, added the photos to your memorial and re-established the link with his daughter Emily. I also transfered Emily over to you as well.. If there is anything else you need, just let me know and I will do my best to accommodate..

Happy New Year!!

James W Robertson
James died on March 26, 1986. He's buried with his former wife Josie. On her site you have a date 21 Mar 1987. Could you tell me what that date refers to. He was born on July 9, 1903 in Oklahoma. His # is 30599072. His last wife Dorothy Hoffman Dragoo Robertson was my mothers aunt. Thanks for the help Audrey

It's been a long time since I've been on here. A lot has happened in my life over the past few months and I needed a break. Hope things are well with you.
