FAG Photo Request for Conrad and Charles Scharff
Hi,

I haven't visited the cemetery itself recently but my wife and some friends are documenting headstones in all the cemeteries in Lyon County for the Flint Hlls Genealogical Society. While I've only taken a few photos myself, I'm with my wife when she is photographing so I have permission to use her photographs.

I thought we might have Conrad's and/or Charles' headstone photo but we don't. I checked for their names on the list for Hartford Cemetery but did not find either one. Then I decided to check Hartford St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery list and found Elizabeth Burkett Scharff (1835 - 1899), wife of Conrad which I see on the Find A Grave site you are aware of her being.

Long story short, were Conrad and Elizabeth buried in seperate cemeteries? I could not find Conrad or Charles Scharff on the St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery list.

There is another small town named Neosho Rapids near by Hartford which has a cemetery but the names do not appear in that list either.

This is the link to the Lyon County Cemeteries: http://www.lyoncountyks.org/

At this point, I don't think a headstone exists but I'm not listing a problem since I haven't made a trip there recently. If you discover something that might give me a better clue as to burial location, I can attempt a photograph. I live about 20 miles away from Hartford.

Also, Hartford, Kansas sits on the county border with Coffey County so maybe one or the other is in Coffey County.

Wishing you the best in your quest.

RE: Regarding Jacob Henry Boring
Are you a BORING cousin ? Thanks, I've seen many different trees for the Boring family and I'd like to help get it sorted out so everyone can agree. Thanks for your help. Keep in contact.

Hello. I recently went to the East Greenbush cemetery & looked for the tombstones you requested. I did not find the stones you wanted photographed. There are many old stones with their engravings too worn to read. Although the cemetery is well tended there are a few stones that have fallen, face down. There are a couple bases with no upright portion visible. There is also the possibility that I just missed a stone as I walked up & down each row.I did find other Akins but not the ones you listed. I wanted to send this note to let you know your request has not gone unnoticed. I wish I could have found & photographed the stones you requested.

RE: Edward BORING
You're right, I had looked for a stone for him earlier and couldn't find one. I thought I would look one last time, and there it was. You can use it for anything you like, I took it for you. Thanks
