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.

I found this stone for Marshall R. Lee in Pleasant Valley Cemetery with the same dates you have for Melvin R. Lee. If it is not the same man let me know and I will remove the picture and add his name to the cemetery. If it is the same man please change the name. Thanks Mary

Hi, my name is deb Merchant, my great great grandfather is Henry Robey Hill. I know he died in Downs Kansas, so I am assuming that he would be buried in that area, but it don't know the cemetery. Do you know the cemetery that he is buried ai. I would really appreciate it. And would it be possible for me, to get his memorial transferred to me. Thank you so much

Memorial #106882788
Hello Margaret,

I have additional info about Philippa. Are you a descendant of hers? My great-great-grandmother was Philippa's sister.

Philippa was christened 23 Nov 1828 in Tregony, Cornwall, England. Her maiden name was ROWE - daughter of John ROWE and his wife Joanna/Johanna - maiden name unknown.

She married James JEWELL 26 November 1846 in Iowa County, WI.

Their children were: Samuel, Mary, Rosena, Jane, James Edwin, John Henry, Sophia, William Rowe, Kate, and Priscilla.

After the deaths of Philippa and James, their daughter, Kate, lived with and was considered the adopted daughter of Jane ROWE Eva (married John EVA) of Dodgeville, WI. Kate married Robert RACELY.
