Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you know of relationship links that need to be added or any corrections to be made, feel free to notify me. I will be happy to add any additional information you have on a memorial.

Geneology work is much easier due to the information found on FAG. The more information that can be added, the better to help those searching for friends and relatives.

If I find a duplicate I will send a message to the person that posted the most recent one. If they do not respond I send it on to the FAG administration. There is no need for duplicates.

If I request a correction or addition and it is not acted upon, I send those on to FAG for review.

If you request a transfer please tell me how you are related. Also please make sure you have messages on your profile enabled. I have had requests that I would like to respond to but I have no way of contacting the person making the request because their messages are disabled and there is no email listed for them.

RE: Roy and etc
Tnx --
I will delete the dup Roy Weide.

Yeah, "Jake" Stockebrand is the guy I played with as a kid - he had Downs. I was at their farm near Yates Center. I've also visited the Stockebrand home place near Detmold, Germany (that was years ago).

Tnx for the tip on Herbert Paris - he is the guy who married Pauline Weide. I also linked him to his parents, siblings, and child.

I've branched-out to Toedman's and Schreibers - they married into "the clan".

Looks like the Weide's, Stockebrands, and Toedman's were some of the very earliest settlers in Woodson co. (And also John Light/Johann Licht who tagged along with my gr-gr-grandpa Weide from Illinois to Kansas.

Tnx again, Richard

I sure appreciate you finding the marker for Mary.
Please crop and enlarge the marker so perhaps her name can be seen and add it to memorial.

RE: Jake/Larry Joe Stockebrand
Yeah, that's the guy. I didn't remember him being called "Jake" but apparently that was his nickname.
When we visited the Stockebrand farm as a kid, I "played" with Jake/Larry Joe, even though he was older, he was still like a little kid, riding his wooden Hobby Horse.

RE: Allen & Woodson Counties

Re: Edna Downing Jones, Yates Center, Woodson County, Kansas.

The information I gleaned from records on Ancestry:

Birth 31 Dec 1829 in Ohio, USA

It also states that she died in Ohio. There is another Edna Jones living about the same timespan entirely in Ohio, so....

It appears the family moved to Kansas between 1860-1870 so I find the death in Ohio to be a little dubious.

I am still working on it!

I added the marriage of Mr. Dobyns to his first wife, Olia. Do you have any indication that she is buried in this cemetery, also? Thanks!

Entering children without memorials
Almost there - just one additional question. I have some children whom I would like to link to their parents but the children do not have memorial pages. I have solid information on their names and birth dates, but do not know where they are buried or their death dates (and no one has done a memorial page for them). Is there a way to do this?

Also, when I link kids to their parents does a list of siblings automatically come up on the other kids' pages or is this a separate operation?

Transferred memorials
Thank you for transferring the four memorials to me. I was not expecting that, but will try to keep them up. One final question: how do I get the names of children entered onto a parent's memorial? Where they have their own memorials how do I get the numbers inserted? Thanks again.
