Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a descendant of the Daniel Taylor Dean family, Millard Irons family, Solomon Maggert family and Johann Zerfass family. My grandmother, Hazel Surface McPhail and my mother, Lorraine McPhail Dean, decorated graves each year and I went with them, thus my fascination with cemeteries.

My husband's family is John Lafayette LeMaster family, Wm. Jackson Hughes family, Daniel Wainwright family, John H. Boston family, Coleman Pryor Eaton family.

We live in Topeka, Ks. but grew up in Carl Junction, Jasper Co. MO.

I do not know most of the memorials I have built..but I always leave a flower because I believe memorials deserve one. I try to remember veterans, infants, unknowns and old, old graves.

If you would like a family member transferred, please use the EDIT and I will transfer most, except for my relatives.

Those we love remain with us,
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade, because
one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be, more than a
thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory,
they live on in our heart.
Author Unknown.

There's an open gate
at the end of the road
Through which
each must go alone,
And there,
in a light we cannot see,
Our Father claims His own.

RE: Obits
Hi Janice,
Kansas Historical Society has all the newspapers in Kansas on microfilm so that is a source. the downtown library has some of the obits in their files and I think they are trying to add more each day. I don't know how the cost compares between the two resources.
We belong to Topeka Genealogical Society and they have kept obits from 1970. That is where I am working from. We don't have all of them because some of the newspaper got wet when we had roof damage. I am working in 1975 at the moment. If you have dates, I could get hold 1975 through about 1990. After that, we didn't keep them.

Thanks for your question/response to my contribution. I do have a question about the death date. The death cert says 1932 but the headstone says 1931? Any explanation?

Thanks, Michael

Sharpe Morgan
Trying to figure out if this S. Morgan is our ancestor. My husband is a descendent of Daniel Taylor is his 3 times great grandmother Nancy Polly Taylor. Have not been able to find exactly where Nancy or Sharpe are buried. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the note, Janice. I have sent the links to the page in Memorial Park Cemetery, so you can delete your page in Mount Hope for him. Let me know if there are any more things to fix.
