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.

Joseph T. Schubert
Thank you so much for entering the information on Joseph T. Schubert. He is my 2nd great granduncle by adoption. As far as I can tell, he was born in Bohemia in December 1849. He married Rosalia Brousch 21 May 1872 in Saint Louis, Missouri. Thank you again for showing me his death date. His wife, Rosalia, is also buried in that cemetery, possibly near him.

Mt Muncie - Charles Enochs (126458756)
Hi! Another member requested a photo request for Charles' marker. According to the cemetery office, he was buried at Mt Muncie but was disinterred the same year. There wasn't any note of where his remains were moved to only that he is no longer buried at Mt Muncie Cemetery. Thought you might like to know.

RE: Rebecca Wolcott
Sure will tell him hello for you. We can all help each other. Without help, we would all still be searching for our family.
Have a great week.
