Mary & Alexander Stanton
I am related to Mary Barefoot and Alexander Vale Stanton. I found the grave sites in Somerset County Pennsylvania. I think he would be my G4 Grandfather. According to my family history, they had a son named John F. Stanton who married Katherine Bowman. I know that she was born 1846 and died 1918. I don't have dates for John F. Stanton, and I don't see John listed as one of the children but all the dates seem to line up. I'm very new at this and learning. Any advice or confirmation you can give me will be very helpful.

adding obits
If I have an obit to add to a page from a person I've had no dealing with, I check their profile. If there are indications there that obits won't be posted, I just sent the citation, and abstractions from the obit: survivors include 3 sons and 2 daughters, etc.

I'm frustrated by people who won't approve edits, or who make duplicate pages because someone won't answer their queries. I found one of those this morning in Maple Hill. I just found it because I was looking to see what photos were requested. Someone wanted a photo for a page transferred to me from the mysterious "Carolyn." They had made a new page, spelling the name Billie Joe Carterman; the original page was Billy J. Carterman (with your photo.)

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

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.

No problem- you've helped me many times, too. If I can ever be of any help back here, let me know, and thank you for the kind words!

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.
