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.

Find A Grave Memorial# 142925309
Missouri death certificate site has one for:
Joseph J. Fawcett, born July 21, 1912, MO (probably in Jackson Co. MO) and died March 21, 1914 in Kansas City, Jackson, MO. he was 8 months old and died from bronchopneumonia. Father is Dale Otho Fawcett and mother is Mary Malissa 'Lissa" Fuqua Fawcett. This Joseph might be the same one as in #142925309. The death cert reads he was buried March 22, 1914 in Elmwood Cemetery.

RE: William Eddins McMath...
Well...I wish I could "advise" you on this. In the 1900 KC MO census she is 50 years old, and says she was the mother of 1 child, with 1 living. so that tells me William Eddins was her only child. THEN her sister who filled out her death cert says she was the widow of Charles McMath. THEN in the 1911 KC directory, there are 2 Louise McMaths listed: 1 is widow of Jay 2314 Montgall KC MO. 1 is Louise 3736 Park Ave KC MO, living with son William E a RR employee. William's second wife, Jennie filled out his Death Cert, and she said his father was Jay G. Her mother's obit says she was Mrs Charles McMath #77144284. Keep in mind "back then" it was very common for a woman to say she was a widow, when in fact she was divorced, to "save face" SO....Are you as confused as I am now???
