|Robert Hall||Family Information|
Thanks so much for the family data we've located on Find A Grave. It is very much appreciated.
I'm trying to locate the burial site of my great grandfather. He arrived in Junction City, Davis County in 1874. His name at birth (1817)in Sweden was Helje Nilsson. Name changed to H N "John" Hall in 1875 when applying for citizenship. He passed away 30 Oct 1891, in either Davis County or Riley County. We don't know where he is buried. Can you help us locate his grave ??
His son, John Hall(1847-1916),was my G'Pa. He arrived from Sweden to Junction City in 1869. His birth name was Johannes Heljesson, and was changed to John Hall. His son Charles O "Chick" Hall, was my Dad, born in Riley County in 1893.
Again, we appreciate your efforts on behalf of our many family members in Highland Cemetery.
R.E. "Bob" Hall

I wanted to thank you and your grandson for being so diligent in trying to find the grave of Ruth Briggs for me. I really do appreciate it.

Thanks Connie for your extra help, Ann
Thanks Connie - I corrected the spelling of Willie and moved the "headstone not located" to "Notes" from "Inscription". The paper says he was buried there so that may be all we get. Thanks again for taking the time - you've always been so helpful. LG

|Christine Wells-Leddon||John and Lucinda Badger (et al)|
I had a chance to visit the Geary County Historical Museum today, and with the kind assistance of the curator I found pictures of John T Price and his wife Martha (Badger) Price-Wanzer. While I was chatting with the curator, I also found out that Martha's parents John and Lucinda Badger were originally buried at Milford, but were transferred to the new cemetery when the town was razed to put in the reservoir. If I send you copies of the pictures of John T and Martha, can you add them to their memorials? I am also asking for photos of John and Lucinda Badger...so if they museum finds those photos would you add those as well? Let me know...
|Christine Wells-Leddon||John T Price|
I have had a chance to do some additional research on this John T Price, and I am getting closer to proving the identity of his parents: Grief Price and Maria (Cocke) Price. At this point, the evidence looks persuasive (but not conclusive) that is mother was Maria (Cocke) Price (the sister of William Archer Cocke the third Mayor of Louisville) and his father was Grief Price (War of 1812 veteran). All of this information comes from primary source documentation (obituaries, marriage & service records), but is still pretty circumstantial.
In any event, I did get Col. Price's service record, and his middle name *is* Thomas (if you would like to add that information).
Connie, would it be possible to transfer a few more of my family members over to me. The names are Leroy Ruthstrom (grandfather) and Carolyn Oman (aunt). They are buried at Walsburg Cemetery.
|Sheryl ||Anna Mae Beaver Burns Langvardt|
I didn't even realize I had her until the GSGS contacted me, wanting me to change her last name to Burns Langvardt. You may not even want her, but you are stuck with her now! Hope you had a great time on your trip!

Would it be okay if I maintained my family plots on find a grave that you have. The last names are Rosell and Ruthstrom.
|JoAnn Kurtze||Rosa (Miller) Kurtze|
Thank you for the information on Rosa. When I was in Junction City last it was just for a few hours at the public library. And a big thanks for all the memorials you've recorded.
