Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Kerry Elkins. I live in Oregon with my wife Joyce. I'm retired. I have been busy working on the family trees of my side (Elkins, Monroe, Stansbury, Patchin, Usher, Satterwhite, Hallum and Woody) I grew up in Neodesha, KS, and have many relatives there.

The ideal person to transfer one of the many memorials I have made for the Neodesha area would fit along the lines set forth by FindAGrave, I am more than happy to transfer any of these memorials that are not part of my family to anyone that promises to care for them. Cousins, aunts, and close friends please apply.


Come, look with me inside this drawer
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white
faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew the people
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where or when,
These faces of my heritage
would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of pictures we take today?
The faces and memories
Someday to be passed away?
Make time to save your stories
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.

Well it looks like my hunch paid off.

However, it would have stayed just a hunch without your great investigative work! Thank you!!!

William Anderson Opdyke
Thanks for the info concerning William Anderson Opdyke. I am a descendant of the Opdykes and have been looking for Bill, as he is mentioned in my research, for years. Are you related to him and do you have any more info about him or his descendants?

Go ahead and sent your copy so I can look at it. But either the SS is wrong or the funeral record. Thanks Wonderer

RE: Dooleys
Glad to do it. Thats the third time we have been up on that hill. Pretty tough finding the graves up there. Have a good one and CUL.

You're very welcome. Went a little early this year, cabin fever after the winter. Thanks
