|Marla||Earl Whittaker Family|
I hadn't forgotten your message-
I found the obituary (listed below) on the internet. Also located Find A Grave Memorial #72836648 for Leon, and made an edit asking for him to be linked to his parents. I changed Earl's birth date to "unknown" since that was a mistake.

Whittaker was born May 3, 1935 in Dodge City. He was the son of Otis Jesse and Velda Dora (Israel) Whittaker. Whittaker was a resident of Great Bend, moving there in 1953.

Thank you for looking it up for me, I appreciate it. I will also look up funeral homes in the area. I tried the county court house & they didn't know anything & they suggested the library & I got a snippy librarian that said she was too busy with things at the moment to call back another day...but wasn't sure about the records. So, i'll have to try back & see if i can catch her (or someone) at a less busy time.
I will also try the numbers you listed too. Thank you.
I don't know if listing the info for the cemetery records is actually possible when posting a cemetery, but it'd be nice if people added that kind of info to the directions of finding the cemetery :)
Thank you again for your help.

I don't know if i ever responded to this, but if i haven't.....Thank you.
If you go back there or could, could you check to see if the donation info is still the same as what you posted in 2015.
Thank you very much

Sorry it has taken so long to get back with you. I am not absolutely positive where Lena and Harriet died or are buried. My guess is that is is in Reno Co, KS. The daughter Arvilla died there in 1923. Walter was there in the census in 1930. It makes sense that they were there during that entire time however, I have not seen a death certificate.

Hi, Just came across your message today. Yes my wife is a cousin to Mary Jane. My wife is the only child of James G Morgan. I have been working on my family geneology as well as filling in some gaps in the Morgan Family that Mary Jane hasn't done. Mary Jane has picked up the ball from her Grandmother Agnes Morgan Dick and has done a fantastic job of research and recording the history from way back when. I she Mary Jane at the Geneology meetings we have from time to time. Thanks for contacting me and glad I was able to help you. D

I don't know whether the person whose name you mentioned is a Find A Grave member or how she feels about receiving credit, but I always try to respect privacy in my postings. I also try to include verifiable sources in contributions to biographies. Often the name of the contributor is all that's available, but that at least gives viewers who want more information a place to start.

In regard to recent e-mail. I need to know parents name and number to connect son.
Second, I have no idea what you want put on as it is not a family history it's a Find A Grave. The history is to long. Please advise.

I just submitted an edit for D.O.B and D.O.D and place of death. It was taken from an article called "Horse & Buggy Days, The History of Clark County by General S.J. Conklin. The article appeared in the Clark County Courier in 20 July 2016 --my mother did not date it. The local paper has been running this series for several months now and there are several more starting the week of July 27, 2016 done years ago by Dollie, George's wife. If you are interested, I will be more than happy to scan and email to you. However, I would need your e-mail address as attaching to a public message cannot be done, at least, I do not know how. My paternal family were born and raised in the Clark. I recall my grandmother talked about the Fountains.
