Bio Photo Please help me process your edit requests by sending me a personal email to alert me that you have sent through a correction if you see that it has been a few days and the changes did not take place. With the new system there are no notices sent to the contributors that there are edits waiting to take place and we usually have to randomly stumble across them, or check daily.
I am an amateur "genie" researching many family lines in both my husband's and my own family.

During the summer of 2010, we re-traced the path of the wagon trains that brought our families out to Kansas, which took us through MO-IL-OH-PA. During our trip we not only visited the Historical Societies, but also many cemeteries where we cleaned or uncovered headstones, took photos, and documented the information for not only our records, but for future generations.

HEADSTONE PHOTOS: My husband and I have spent considerable time, and in some instances driving great distances, battling weeds, heat, rain, bugs and critters to take these photos. Saying that...please feel free to use any photo for your family records. Please be respectful and do not re-post to any other memorials on FAG or any other public grave website. Should you find any questionable information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This summer 2014 we are working on Lincoln Cemetery in Lebo, Kansas and Arvonia Cemetery in Arvonia, Kansas.

My husband's family lines are: Clewell, Cryder, Clester, Brink, Donley, Dixon, Derrick, Downs, Reid, Louthan

My family lines: Hitchcock, Higgins, Homire, Heskett, Van Buskirk, Meek, Robinson

Happy hunting!

RE: Dora Adaline (Elliott) Allen memorial
Did I make the corrections? I'm a little behind.

Are you related to the Clester family ? I am related through Emma Elizabeth Turner, daughter of Wilson Turner. I graduated from Fairmount High School in 1950.

/Wife of Orval Kelley Memorial #
First my apologies for taking so long to answer your e-mail! I took a fall and spent two months in the hospital and rehab with a broken shoulder and pelvis!

Thank you so much for finding and forwarding the memorial for Orval Kelley's wife (Olinda B. Lessman Kelley) and their son Leroy George Kelley. I love to have pictures. It really helps!

Are you descended from Orval Kelley? If so we are cousins. Orval descends from Elizabeth Payne who married Charles Drake Seaton. Elizabeth is a sister of my 4th great grandfather, Henry Johnson Payne. I would sure love to correspond with you, especially if we are related!!!

Hope to hear from you soon. My e-mail is: The third letter is a lowercase L and not a 1 (one).

Thank you again! It is people like you who make genealogy so much fun!

RE: Mireille Leone Jacquet Remer
I had added a photo from my visit to the local cemetery and added it to the memorial because it had the death date for the person--a date not on the photo already with the memorial.

As expensive as nice stones are, I find it hard to believe they had one put in both cemeteries. Maybe they own a monument company!

Mildred Burtner
"Thank you for adding the marriage license and obits for Mildred Nadine (Davidson) Burtner. Where do you find them? Is there a database?"

I find newer obits through my local library. I'm able to access their records online. Occasionally I've just googled someone and found an obit or some other interesting news article.

That's interesting that she'd been married to his brother. I mistakenly thought she must have remarried the same man a second time.
