|Bio and Links|
I have been doing genealogy for about 30 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away twelve years ago. I am retired and am carrying on his legacy. It is amazing how much time I spend on the computer every day doing research.|
I grew up in Kansas and moved to California around 1958 and have lived here ever since. My ancestry research started out mostly Swedish with some Norwegian. Now with about 11,600 people in my family tree, it includes many nationalities including Irish and English and Canadian. I am mostly focused on Kansas (around Vilas and Chanute, where my family grew up), and also Missouri, Nebraska, California, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.
My Swedish ancestors came over mostly around the 1870's from the mainland and the Island of Gotland and then settled in Kansas. My records go back to the 1500's.
My goal in Find-A-Grave is to provide as much information on a memorial as possible for the benefit of others. I use Ancestry.com daily for research and have accumulated a lot of solid info.

You are very welcome. Glad to have helped. I do enjoy walking cemeteries wondering what stories are behind each name.
|Roberta G||George Washington Smith|
George was the son of Henry Smith and Mary Quigley.
According to letter written by George Smith's son, Jack, the family moved to Omaha, Nebraska in 1872 or 1873. Henry died about 1885 or 1886.
At father's death, he went to live with his mother's family in Philadelphia. Mary had a sister named Sarah, who was called Sadie. She had 15 children. His brother, Charles Elijah, was raised by Laton and Rachel Francina Curtis, and he took their last name. He is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Kansas City, Wyandotte County, KS and has a find-a-grave memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 104165183
great granddaughter of Charles Elijah Curtis
Thank you for transferring the memorial to me!
I really appreciate the work you are doing!

You are most welcome! Always glad to help.
|Valarie Vine||Naomi Kolb (Lincoln Cemetery)|
Thanks for your note. It appears that the other memorial (with unknown burial location) was added in 2010 by a niece of Naomi's. My thought is that you could add the photo you took to the other memorial and notify the person that Naomi is buried at Lincoln Cemetery. Your choice, of course. (I am not related to Naomi, just happened to be looking up some items in the 1967 microfiche at the library).

On your request for Pearson in the Brantford cemetery, was you wanting the Pearson family or a certain person?

You are most welcome - glad I could help.

I added a new photo. Check it out. It's no longer upside down. As you can see they need to plant some grass seed. However, these lots are surrounded by large trees.
