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. We were married on May 28, 1950.
Olmstead memorials transfer Della, Thanks for the transfer of Merritt and Lizzie Olmstead. Again, we appreciate the contributions which you and Melvin provided for the FindAGrave site over the years. Best regards, R&J
Rebecca Buckingham Watkins Hello, while looking for information on the 1903 Eddyville flood I came across another write-up on Rebecca Buckingham Watkins ( Find A Grave Memorial# 31794820 ). While it is simular to what you have there is some difference. If you would like, I can email you a PDF of the newspaper page.
Craven Hainsworth I was doing corrections on Craven Hainsworth and his wife Eliza Adella Hainsworth. Are you sure that Craven is in Wellington Pioneer cemetery. His wife is in Prairie Lawn Cemetery she died in 1933 and he died in 1937. The person that transferred him to you was probably the person that put him in that cemetery.
Annie Elizabeth Austin Della, thank you so much for that tidbit about Annie's death. That type of information helps so much. Thanks for all that you do for FindaGrave and for we researchers. It is appreciated very much.
