I'm sorry but I did not submit the memorial for Mary Ann Yoakum. You will have to request a father link from her memorial. Also, you can have her maiden name ALLEN added to her memorial.

Please explain the discrepancy in this memorial. I am confused as the dates are entirely different on the headstones.

Serena Chandler
Hi Barb,

The information I found for Serena is sourced on her memorial and mentions the discrepancy between the stone and the obits. When there is a discrepancy, FindAGrave guidelines say to always list it as what is on the gravestone and note any discrepancies in the bio section. (Btw, I just noticed that her middle initial on her gravestone does appear to be an "L", so I changed it from an "I".

The links were requested by another contributor. The following links were requested by Kelshm (FindAGrave member #48239188)
John C Chandler
(1832 - 1904)
Lydia Elizabeth Ann Playle Chandler
(1842 - 1926)
Spouse 1:
William Thomas Playle
(1846 - 1919)
Spouse 2:
David B Phelps
(1865 - 1932)

The same contributor also requested the following link for Nellie Renshaw:
William Thomas Playle
(1846 - 1919)
Serena Chandler
(1887 - 1971)

If these links are incorrect, let me know and I will remove them. As I mentioned there are inconsistencies and I have no problem reverting back to nothing more than what is included on the stone (meaning no bio and no links).

Best Regards,

FYI I got the information I updated from the death certificate from the online website Family Search. It's free.

RE: George L Brown 112884094
No George is not related in any way to me. I just try to link loved ones when I see they should be. If I was related, I would appreciate the offer. Thank you for offering

RE: Ed Yoakum or Fanny Yoakum
Hi Barb, if you would send me your e-mail address, I will be glad to send you stories about the Yoakums. My mom and dad married in 1936 and moved into the house next door to the Yoakums. We called them Aunt Fanny and Uncle Ed. Sadie was committed to the insane asylum in Osawatomie around 1945-46. Ed had the most fantastic flower (roses) and vegetable gardens. He was the first to plant zoysia grass really early in the 50's. No one had ever heard of it. The house was incredible and is still standing although it was converted to a duplex in the early 60's after Ed and Fanny had both passed away. They totally ruined the character of the house. I always told my family that if I could purchase the house, I would renovate it and return it to its original condition. It had tin ceilings in the kitchen and the most beautiful parlor doors! The root cellar still had a dirt floor! I believe the Yoakum house was one of the first built on Rainbow Blvd. I think it was built around 1906. I will dig through my boxes and see if I can find you any pictures. I know I have the congratulation cards that Fanny sent when I was born in 1944. My e-mail address is I loved them dearly and would be glad to help you in any way I can. Judy Ward
