RE: Amelia Keener Sherman
Amelia was born in Keokuk Iowa. Her father is John W.C. Keener born 1823 in Virginia. Her mother was Massa Ann Margaret Cassaday born 30 June 1832 also Virginia.

Amelia and Jeremiah had 3 children, William Oney Sherman that you have listed and then Isabelle born in abt 1882 and Mary E. born abt 1883.

I do not have anything on Isabelle or Mary except that my Granny though Mary married a man by the last name of East and she thought he was a dentist.

If you need anything else, let me know. I am glad to answer what I can.

Thank you

Amelia Keener Sherman
You are listed to have submitted Amelia Keener Sherman's information for find a grave at Rochester Cemetery in Topeka. Her birth month is March. She would be my great grandmother.
Her husband was Jeremiah Sherman. He is not located in Rochester Cemetery. If you or anyone else knows anything about Jeremiah, I would be extremely grateful. My grandmother Devota Sherman-Walters has passed away and I promised her I would find out where he was buried.

topeka cemetery section and lot maps
I see that you have posted volunteer photos at the Topeka Cemetery.

Now that they are under new management I have been able to get good quality section maps of all 96 sections and have posted them at

http://www.billandleann.com/TopekaCemeteryMaps/

You can print copies of the maps from that site. I added a link to the cemetery database where you can look up names and find the section/lot info. This should make the job easier for us volunteers.

If you ever run across
If you ever run across a Susan Bellgarde Curwick, Kerouac or similar name. I am pretty sure she passed away in Shawnee county 1875-1880. She was married to Hyppolite (Paul). Several spellings of their name as been found.
Thank you for all the memorials you have made. They help others to connect with their family.

Lora and Oliver Yeager
Thank you for the information on Lora Yeager. If you ever come across information on her husband, Oliver A. Yeager, that would be welcome. I am still searching for their markers at Valley View, the information I have came from another source. There is another Oliver Yeager (b. 1916) who is not this one, but who also lived in this area.

RE: Beegles - Union Church
Me too - re losing family in the flood - and I have found proof of some stones being moved to other cemeteries. It was a tragic time. I think I will do as you have done. Thanks for your help.

Hi Nancy, thanks for the transfer. I'm okay with you holding on the them if you want to keep a big family all together, so let me know. If not I'll take good care of them for you. I really appreciate all the work you've done. It really helps me in finding more about my family history. Have a great day!
