Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have entered a memorial for a relative of yours it is because when I was at the cemetery I look for other 'interesting' headstones and something must have drawn me to your relative. I will gladly transfer ownership to you if you e-mail me thru find-a-grave or at and give me your membership number.

I welcome corrections and updates...please use the EDIT tab on the memorial rather than contacting me directly.

You have my permission to use any of my FaG photos for your personal use. You will need to use the images on FaG because I do not keep the original .jpg images after I post...too many pix and not enough terabytes of storage!

I particularly enjoy visiting the remote rural cemeteries. I make every effort to find who is the steward of the cemetery and attempt to get a map of the sections and lot locations. (usually the county clerk at the courthouse has the steward information). Most of these stewards are old and all share a common frustration that nobody wants to take over the responsibility from them when they are gone. They are delighted to learn that FaG has taken the interest to list and photograph graves in their cemeteries.

Oakley Finn
Bill, Thanks for trying to find Oakley Finn's grave in Eskridge. Since his obituary says he was buried at Eskridge I suppose he could have been buried on the property of a relative in Eskridge, rather than in the cemetery.

RE: Rolla Parker
Thanks for the additional info. I hope to get back there to see the cemetery one day. Yes, he was the General Manager of the Santa Fe Western Line from 1916 until his death.

Chod Harvey
Hi Bill, Thank you so much for trying to find the headstone for Chod Harvey in the Wilmington cemetery. Subsequently, I did find an obit for him and his name was Charles "Chod" Harvey. I also found the person that has the cemetery records and he checked for a headstone and was unable to find one. So, I removed the request.
Thanks for all your efforts.

Smith headstone
Bill, thank you so much for taking the photo of Randolph Smith's headstone and creating memorials for Sarah and Cora - I had no idea they were buried there (or at least included on his marker). Cora A (Smith) McHenry is a daughter of Randolph and Sarah, born June 1888 in Kansas.

Thanks again!
