Hi, I am 60, sort of retired. My husband Jim and I have a small farm. We have about 40 cows, that we feed and take care of. Calving is fun, unless it's below zero at 2 in the morning. But, we take the good with the bad. Seeing a live baby get up in those conditions is a miracle. Even "I" like the heat from the hair dryer !!
I'm researching my family, with names like the "Giacoletto" clan from Arkansas, and my Mother's "Maluda" family in Massachusetts. Also my Step Dad's family from Cloud County, Ks, the Coyle's and Gibbs. My husbands side are from this area, Ottawa County, and they are Henry, and Haley's.
I am on the dyslexic side of things, so hard as I try, what I see, may not be what is really there. So, if you see errors, please let me know, and I will correct them.
There's just not too much more I guess. Thanks for listening. Sue
Orene Stevens I sent a request for the maiden name to be Garber but I think I was wrong. I tried to send a message via the edits but it wouldn't accept it. Please don't add the maiden name. Find A Grave Memorial #65476050. Thanks and Sorry, Alison Land
Hammerli tombstone photos Thanks for adding pictures to some of the Rose Meron Cemetery Hammerli sites. I wonder if your husband is related to the now deceased Jim and Helen Henry who had a pig farm east of Longford, Ks. Thanks again, Ed Hammerli
Henry & Velma Brewster I came across your names as I'm researching my family history. Henry and Velma Brewster are my Great Grandparents from my mom's dad. Jerry D Brewster is their only child which is my Grandfather that past away in 1971. Do you have more information on them?
John Miller I wanted to ask if you are related to John Miller, I'm related through his wife Mary Corkwell, I was wondering about the article about his son David Todd Miller who killed his father. Marita
Memorial #77279752 Hi Sue: It has been a long time since we met each other at the Talmage Museum a few years ago. I appreciate all the time and effort you have put in to the Prairie Dale Cemetery. I have been trying to find the 2nd and 3rd husband of Ida Mae Bell. She was first married to an ancestor of mine Frederick Cunningham who is buried in Prairie Dale. I found her third husband (Lewis Lantz) in the Bethel Cemetery. Her second husband was Joel A. Huitt. Memorial #77279752 is a Joel A. Huitt. His death date would fit with her timeline, but his birth date is off. I was looking at the age of his parents and his sibling...also, looking at the stone.. and I am thinking his birth date probably is earlier than recorded. I know Verl at the Talmage Museum has a Cemetery Book, I wonder what date is in there? And that stone looks like it is very hard to read. When you have time, could you check that for me? Thank you, Linda Cunningham
