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!

Thank you for your attention to detail and caring as regards the Hodges line.

As requested I checked the updates. Those were fine. I went in to research the line a bit further, and found some more information for you, as well.

By the way I noticed your maiden name is Hitchcock. I am related to the Hitchcocks of Farmington, Maine. (Richard Hitchcock was originally from Damariscotta, I think.)

Thank you so much for the wonderful picture you took of this headstone. I don't know how you did it, but it is much clearer and more legible than it is in person!

Dear Nancy,
First I'd like to thank you and your husband for posting such valuable genealogical information and photos on Find A Grave. I am particularly amazed at some of the information I'm finding on the Clewell line. I just accessed your record for Abraham Clewell telling the story of the men bringing guns to the cemetery for fear of Indians. I was also viewing your record for Joseph Clewell which is extensive. It appears that your husband and I share the same ancestors. George Craft Clewell and Anna Marie Keuchle/Keuchley are my 5th great-grandparents and Abraham and Joseph would be my 5th great uncles. Would you be willing to share your sources for some of your information such as the story about the fear of Indians at Abraham's funeral. I'm fascinated! I probably don't have nearly as much information to share with you, but I do have some and I'd be more than willing to share what I do have. Either way, thank you very much for not only compiling, but being so willing to share the fantastic information you have posted online. I can't wait to finish dinner and get back to searching thru your records! Sincerely, Christine Z.

RE: Musselman
Hi Nancy,
Yes, I am related. My Great-Grandmother was Gertrude Musselman Fox. Henry would have been her Great-Grandfather. I got on Ancestry and did some searching and it looks like most people have Henry's father as also a Henry born in Lancaster County in 1737. The older Henry was the brother of David Henry and Christian, both of who appear to have served in the Revolutionary War. I am originally from Kansas where several of the Musselman's moved to after the Civil War but Moved to Texas in high school and have been here since except for a couple of years in the army.

RE: Charles A. Donley / Lena Ladd
My grandmother was Anna Mina Goyen; her father William Frances 1850; grandfather was Frances Goyen III 1820 so we are related lets see, Thomas William and William Frances were brothers I believe. Thanks for all the genealogy work you have done and do. I love learning all the history; recently was able to add my great-grandfather on the Goyen/Slattery branch that we have never known before.

We have another mutual relative!!! Joe was married to my Dad's first cousin, Betty Jones. She was the daughter of Chet Jones, who was a brother to my Grandfather, Francis Jones. Betty therefore was my second cousin!

RE: Asa
Nice to meet you also!
Thank you so much for sending over the info for Asa. I was never absolutely certain about his birth and death dates or if Acy or Asa was his actual legal name. I started with just Otto.
My grandmother and aunts asked me to search for him as they never met him and wanted to know about him. Once he divorced Pearl, she moved and he was never around. My great grandmother passed without ever meeting her father. She also always wondered about him.
If you know of any photos of the family I would love to see them. I have seen a photo of one of his siblings children but that is about it.
Loved hearing from you. Thank you again for the information!
