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.

Duplicate memorial
Hello, I noticed that memorial #65837886 for Frater, Isabelle is a duplicate of memorial #11163472. Would you please either merge with the original post or delete your duplicate? Thank you for your efforts.

Vosburg vs. Vosburgh
Gosh Swede, I feel like a total fool. I really can see that the stone says "VOSBURGH" not Vosburg. Sorry. I fixed it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Hi Swede, Thanks for all the help with the Shuss family. By the way are you related to them?

I have a box of old stuff, I came across. In it was a letter addressed to Miss Pluma Mapes. I did upload it to the site. Was she any relation to you. I also have a document of George Mape from 1902 with his picture.
