Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Thompson, Walker, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Murdock, Streeter, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

Mistake on memorial
No, it is not your mistake, but mine. On the memorial for Nicholas J. Howe, I accidently tapped the return button twice and it left two identical flowers and messages. Sorry. I can't correct it. I also want to thank you for your work on the Stafford Cemetery. I have quite a few family members there.

James B. Yearns at Stafford Cemetery
Hi, I was wondering where you got the 11 March death date for this person, since I found him listed in the 1880 census which was taken 1st of June. Also, I believe his death place should be Edwards County, not Crawford (in 1880 he is found living in Franklin, Edwards County, not Crawford County).

Jacobs Family at Stafford
Richard - I am researching the Jacobs/Bond families and have found graves in Stafford Cemetery, the FINDAGRAVE entry managed by you.
Would you have any information regarding Milburn M. Jacobs, the first husband of Elizabeth Belle Spear Jacobs Bond? Or, any contacts with the Jacobs/Bond descendants who may be able to help?
Milburn M. Jacobs was my great-grandfather by his first wife, Mary Ellen (Ella) Algaier, with whom he had two daughters.
I have found lots of references to Milburn and siblings in, but have not been able to Find A Grave, death certificate, or any census records after 1905. I also have not been able to confirm the news articles as definitely about him or his siblings.
Please let me know if you can be of assistance.
Thank you, sincerely,
Kathleen Favrow

There seems to be 2 memorials for Anna Mae. Im not the creator of the second one, was created by Chris Mill. Anna Mae was my Dads sister and I have posted pictures and links to her memorial. Would like for you to merge the 2 or delete yours. I'm new to this so Im not sure how to do it. Thanks Wayne Dunn

Mary C Spears Memorial#58656647
Hi Richard,

The above listed memorial was created by you. During my family research I came across another memorial, #85522809 for Mary C Spears that was connected to her husband. I just filled in the empty spaces ie. birth/death places, full name, etc. I am hoping you will consider deleting your memorial so there will only be one memorial instead of two.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.
