March 30, 2014

Finished the Grace Cemetery in McDonald, Kansas just in time for their 125th birthday. Still missing a few obituaries but someone recently found some old newspapers so I'm hoping they get them on microfilm so I can look at them.

I am now working on the St Francis Cemetery and the Bird City Cemetery. As soon as we get some warmer weather, I am going there to take more pictures.

Anyone can use my photos for the geneology research. Please credit me for the picture, but you do not need special permission.

If anyone wants any of the memorial that I have posted, just send me a message. I will be happy to transfer memorials if they are not my immediate family.

Working on my family trees since 1976.

When my brother passed away in March of 2010, I wanted to do some kind of volunteer work in his honor. Since he is buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery, I became a volunteer for that cemetery. However, I also wanted to do the photos of my family that have passed on. Since my husband and I are retired, we began stopping at many little cemeteries and taking pictures of tombstones and listing them on the web site.

Thanks to everyone for their nice responses for the pictures I take.

Marilyn, #47393995

Bear family - St Francis
Hello Marilyn Birkby. Wondering if you are related to the Bear family buried in St. Francis Cemetery? Specifically Peter Bear born in early 1800s (1815, I think). Thanks, Gayle Foster

Rebecca Mysick
For Rebecca Mysick you have listed as Thomas Nelson Talley's mother. He is buried in St. Francis Cemetary. Where did you get her last name? In my family papers the spelling is listed as Messick and I am just wondering if that is actually the correct spelling or not. Thanks for your help! Kaycie
