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.

I appreciate the Wamhoff photo for Alvin and Winifred Wamhoff but it is difficult to see the dates on the headstone. I was hoping to be able to use the photo with my family history but it is useless to me if the dates cannot be read.

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.

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.
