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

Transfer done. Thanks for taking care of her memorial. I'm also hunkering down in anticipation of the snow. Let's hope the weather folks are wrong and we only get a few inches. Stay warm and safe. Debbie J.

RE: William E Taylor
You are welcome! I think I found an obituary for him, and sent it to the manager, who will most likely add it in a day or so.

I want to thank you for taking the time to search for a tombstone for Neil Bolyard. Unfortunately, not everyone has a tombstone. Your effort is greatly appreciated.

RE: John Guy Harris
Hello. I just had a telephone call and forgot your first name..

The connection that I have with the Harris line is this...Leta Harris married Jewell Gardner...he was brother of my mother. Her parents were Charlie and Bertha Overmiller Harris...according to obit.

This is what I would suggest about the Harris people. Please contact my cousin, Wayne Gardner, son of Jewell and Leta... His e-mail is He is very interested in family history...he may have a big Harris history... many in that family also have an Overmiller history as well.
