Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 daily for research and have accumulated a lot of solid info.

My honor. There was nothing but boards and dirt behind them so I tried to crop them as close as I could. Have a great day.

Billie Bryant
Hi Bob: Billie's memorial is now complete. We have had below freezing temps, rain, snow, and ice accompanied with wind, therefore I have been housebound. When the temps rose to 34 degrees this am, I made a bee line to Osawatomie to see if her stone had finally been installed. This was the best photo. The full length underlayment looked solid, however there is a large discolored area in the center which makes me believe that the soil is very soggy. It will take some of our July heat to dry this up. There was soft mud all around Billie's grave. I did not notice this color variance on Robert's grave. When I am back in the area next fall I will look for signs of cracking. As you can see in her photo, the only weight on this slab is her stone on the west end, so all we can do is let it dry up naturally. Lois

I thought it was 07-21 and 09-12 too. I'm thinking born July 21st and died Sept 12th, just no year. I will make a stop out there again in the summer and see if I missed anything.

Norris Lake is not really a town and it is not very far from Teulon. So the service was probably held in Teulon and buried in Norris Lake Cemetery.

Hi, I actually have a picture of the circular stone. It's for Velma. I will attach it for you.

Most of the headstones here are pretty cool. Great place to visit. Problem is they are so shiny, they are hard to photograph. You local? I am in Fiddletown.

You might consider contacting the cemetery office to get the Block and Lot numbers for the grave. There are over 100 requests...far too many for the few volunteers to research. Thanks
