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.

RE: Wilson and Thomas Fullerton @ Eskridge, KS
Well, isn't that interesting. We must have done this before. Guess my memory is on the way out. :))
I do thank you so much as I love having the family together, even though they are, all together. I just like to see it on the web site.
You folks that take the photos and write down the information are wonderful. I appreciate all your work.

Thanks again

I see you have the headstone of my gt granduncle Wilson C. Fullerton and on the right of his son Thomas R. Fullerton.
I would so appreciate it you would turn the site over to me so I can connect them with others in their family.

Thank you.

Annie Brown Memorial# 90275937
I would like to investigate this Annie Brown. Is this grave connected to a husband at all in this cemetery. You have her memorial and picture of her headstone with "mother" scripted on the stone, so is there a "father" with similar markings nearby? If so, would you have that information? Thanks. I am trying to find a Anna (Henderson) Brown who was born in 1882 and lived in Topeka, Kansas. This may be the one I am looking for. If this is the person, her father is Jerry Henderson Memorial# 133292546 (My great great grandfather) who is also buried in the same cemetery.

Thank you for trying to find his marker. I'm surprised that one was never placed.

William and Edna Graff--Harveyville
Thank you so much for entering the photo's of the gravestones. William is actually the father of Edna. His wife Sarah moved back to Iowa after William, and daughter Edna died. And is buried in Shelby, Shelby County, Iowa. William is my husband's 2nd great grandfather; am so relieved that caring people like you and your wife help with maintaining records. Kansas is a hard state to search records and cemetery data. Thank you, again.

RE: Lemuel Earley at Harveyville, KS
Hi Bill! Thanks for the photo. Too bad Lemuel has no headstone, but proximity to his brother helps confirm that I have the correct Earleys. I'll send you some bio links as an SAC when I get them ready. Lemuel and Moses Earley are my 2nd great grand uncles.

Best regards,
Wade Davis
