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.

Frank Root @ Topeka KS Cemetery
Thanks for looking.

His obit is nearly one page tall and he was a prominent newspaper owner and operator,
so you would think the family would have a stone.

Perhaps his wish to not have one.

In any case he came to Lawrence KS in 1857 from Tioga County PA (quite a trip then) and that surely was an exciting time to be a news man as the Civil War came to town in a state with mixed loyalties.

Just a note to let you know I've added cemetery info and bios to their pages in Mount Hope Cemetery. I've linked their daughter, Evaleen White West to them, and will be adding her info soon.
