Bio and Links
Genealogy has been a topic of interest since college when a Kansas History course required either a term paper or a family history; the family history topic intrigued me more than any other random topic available.

Since that time, I have continued to search out my extended family as well as work closely with the Kinsley Public Library to document those early settlers of Kinsley and Edwards County, Kansas who moved west to grow up with the country.

Whenever possible, I have found obituaries to 'flesh-out' my family members as well as those early settlers.

This avocation is truly an enjoyable journey and I have been fortunate to meet some wonderful individuals along the way.

I found another obit for this gentleman that might help you find his other two sons. Would you care for it? I believe one son is buried in Rock Creek Cemetery. Linda

RE: Joseph LaFonda - 79787281
My pleasure! Your info cleared up the mystery of who this was. The death index listed "Jas. LaFonda," so I thought his name was James. The indexer obviously thought the handwritten "o" was an "a". I appreciate your help!

Thank you for trying to find a marker for Ivan. I figured it would be a long-shot but every once in a while the unexpected shows up!

Thanks so much for the death & burial information for above persons. The more I researched this family I somehow knew these two were returned to Huron county, Ohio after their deaths. Richard
