Bio and Links
Being raised in a small town in southeast Kansas family and friends were a very important part of my life. When I was small I loved listening to my parents and grandparents talk of family. I loved meeting older family members and listening to the stories. Even though these people are gone now they are still very much a part of my life, they taught me to nurture and value family, they guided me to become the person I am today.

My parents and grandparents were faithful in visiting cemeteries and remembering and honoring those that have passed. I guess I inherited that love. Therefore, I dedicate my work on Labette County cemeteries and family histories to my parents and grandparents. It is my hope that I can link families together and tell the stories of the pioneers who first came to the area.

NOTE: Any of the pictures that I have entered aren't bound by copyright infringement and can be used in your family trees. OUT OF "RESPECT" FOR THOSE OF US WHO SPEND HOURS AND HOURS AND TRAVEL MANY MILES TO TAKE THESE PICTURES, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULD LET ME KNOW BEFORE YOU YOU POST A PICTURE I HAVE TAKEN ON THE INTERNET. ***ALSO: I would appreciate it if you would list your source when posting my photos to or other on-line sites. If you have a question regarding a picture, please feel free to contact me.

I will also transfer a memorial to you if they are your family (with the exception of my direct family). Should you find an error or have additional information on any of the people I have posted, e-mail me. I am always glad to make additions and corrections so that the information is as accurate as possible. It may take me a few days to make a correction, so be patient!

But most of all, thank you to all of those who have posted information and photos on Find A Grave. This is a great resource tool for all of us.

It says on his monument that he is the adopted son of D. K. & W. A. Netherton. I have submitted the edits to Memorial page #128124555

The email address you gave above bounced.

I am curious if by any chance you are related to James, or any of his descendants? He is my GGG uncle:

I hope to get his parents' graves documented later this month, then we can link him to them.

Thanks for creating his memorial!

You do impressive work. I did find an error on my great-aunt's page: Lucille Woodward Find A Grave Memorial# 110008478. It says Charles E. Carey was her spouse. Actually, he was her brother. Her spouse is William T. Woodward Find A Grave Memorial# 23998862. Both are buried apart in their birth family cemeteries. Thank you!

I hit enter (again) and lost the whole thing and have to start again.
I want to say thank you for all the work you have done with the Rhodes family on findagrave. It helps in my search when I come across the efforts of another and gives me something to do in the winter. I will do further research, but having all the leads, will make this easier. I am searching for descendants of my 5th gr grandfather, Gottlieb Leffler and John Rhodes (1844-1927) was one of these. If you are interested in his descent from the Lefflers, let me know. I am always happy to share. Thank you again and Happy New Year.

Please let me know if you have a picture of a stone for this individual. It seems to be a duplicate of one made before yours. Need to get this straighten out. Please advise where you received this info.

Wincy Wilkins 108459506
Hi Maggie, First, I want to thank you for the pictures you took and posted of my great-grandmother's headstone. I share your love of family history and family stories. I've been working on my paternal family tree for about 4 years now and have learned so much. Thank you for your willingness to share.@

As I said earlier, Wincy Wilkins is my great-grandmother. I noticed there was no bio attached to her headstone. I would like to add a bio, but don't know how. If I send the information to you, can you add the bio? If not, can you tell me how to add it?

Secondly, I noticed that you have Wincy's birthdate as February 15, 1882. I have her birthdate as February 5, 1876. On the headstone, it shows that she died on June 29, 1901 which is correct. It also shows that she was 25 years old (plus some months and days). If she died in 1901 and was 25 years old, then 1882 is the wrong year. 1876 would be correct. Do you have any documentation to show her birth was in 1882? If so, would you share that with me? Genealogy is not an exact science and if there's some kind of documentation out there that would show that my date is incorrect, I'll gladly change it, but just wanted to ask you about that first.

Wincy's maiden name was Strickland. She was born to a Cherokee mother and a father who was half Cherokee. She was born in Arkansas on the Trail of Tears. She had 6 children (my grandfather, Arthur, was the oldest) and died when the youngest (Everett) was 9 days old.

Please let me know about how to add the bio information. And if you have any documentation about Wincy's birthdate, I'd appreciate that too.
