|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 cannot THANK YOU enough for the wonderful surprise, when I saw the new photographs that you so beautifully took and contributed to these memorials at Elmwood Cemetery. I want you to know that your contribution is most sincerely appreciated by me.

Found 1st daughter, will add her data on Saturday.
|Richard Van Wagenen||Alicia S. (Blood ) Brown|
Further data Alicia's middle initial "S" was for Sarah.
Also, after Alicia, died, Robert married 20 August 1878 in Leavenworth, Kansas Caroline M. :Carrie" Blood born about 1836 in Lyme, Grafton, New Hampshire. Caroline was Alicia's older sister. I don't know what happened to Caroline after Robert's death.
Am wondering is the any kind of obit on Robert ?

Hello! You mentioned that William J. Guy has no headstone. I am well aware of that fact. I ordered one through a gentleman who was and hopefully still is affiliated with the cemetery. that was about 2 years ago. I had asked him to let me know when the stone was to be placed so that someone from our family could be present. And I never heard back from him. I would love to get a military headstone (for his service in the Civil War) finally place as it should have been long ago. Thanks for letting me know about this. Now that we have corresponded about it, let's hope that we can soon change your comment about his lack of a stone to something more of a memorial for him. :-) Thanks, Jan Garland

THANK YOU so much for your attempt to locate the headstone for this memorial.

Thank you for posting a picture of the John Houston's headstone that shows the hand-chisled inscription that had been below ground. A family member (and an ancestor of mine) left a poignant message that has been hidden for over a century.

Thanks for taking the time to check for her marker. Kim
