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

Northdruf Fred
Thank you for the photo of Fred. I am not related to him, but when I was photographing the Gressler cemetery, I found his fathers headstone. There wasn't a memorial for him so I made one.

Being a curious person I decided to research him and lo and behold I found his family tree. I also found that his wife married a man by the name of Kramer who ironically was buried next to the father. Until you requested the edit for Fred, I had no idea where the children or the wife was buried. But with your edit I am again curious.

Do you know if any of Freds' siblings are buried at Bird City or in that area. I would love to have pictures.

I live about 100 miles from Bird City and McDonald and travel thru there frequently, So if you have any info I would sure love to have it.

Again thanks for the photo

Fred Talbott, Hazel Talbott, Joseph Crowfoot and Margaret Crowfoot (Crown Hill Cemetery)
Hello Marilyn,

Sorry for the very late reply on your requests. Due to lack of time and so many requests it is hard to complete them all in a timely basis. Also I have been off line for a very, very long time.

Per your requests I have transferred Fred Talbott, Hazel Talbott, Joseph Crowfoot and Margaret Crowfoot. I had some information for Hazel and Joseph which I had added to their memorials.

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
