I GREW UP IN ROOKS COUNTY,KANSAS. MY PARENTS WERE BETHYL(FRY)& E. K. BIGGE OF STOCKTON- THEY MOVED HOUSES. MY GRANDPARENTS AND GREAT-GRANDPARENTS AND GGGRANDPARENTS ALL EVENTUALLY SETTLED IN ROOKS COUNTY,KS. I STARTED MY GENEALOGY FASCINATION AS A SOPHMORE IN HIGH SCHOOL WHEN WE HAD TO "DO" OUR FAMILY TREE FOR A SEMESTER GRADE. I WAS FORTUNATE WHEN I STARTED AS SEVERAL OF MY GREAT AUNTS AND UNCLES WERE STILL LIVING- SO THEY HELPED FUEL THE FLAMES THAT ARE STILL BURNING TODAY- THE THING I HAVE REALLY LEARNED IS THE MORE YOU LEARN THE MORE YOU WANT TO KNOW IN GENEALOGY.
On Aug. 31st, I received the following SAC from you, regarding the above referenced memorial:
Pat, The death date on stone is right 12-23-1938 he was born on 12-23-1938 death in write up is wrong. This is from a family member.
I have made the requested corrections, but am a little confused as "Pat" is the person who added the tombstone photo. So I am guessing that you thought you were sending your correction to her, rather then me. If you are related to this little one, and would like a transfer, I would be happy to oblige.
RE: Edith Hager No I don't have either Obits. Would love to include them in my tree. I sure appreciate all you have told and done . I just love to hear about the stories of past relatives. Thank you so much Susan
RE: Edith Hager Her oldest sister Florence (they called her Cookie). She passed back in 1970. Aunt Edith and Aunt Alverta came several times up here to Montana to visit when grandma was alive. Aunt Ivy just passed away not too long ago, I hadn't seen her in decades, since Uncle Cleo died. I have many of her painting though passed on to me from my mom Oteka and her sister Donna. I have a lot of letters that Aunt Ivy wrote to mom clear up until mom passed away almost. I also have a lot of baby and children pictures of Shirley (though I have never met her) and my mom as they were pretty close to the same age. Thank you for the information , its always nice to know things about our ancestors. Susan
