|Bio and Links|
I was born on 17 Aug. 1940, in Beloit, Ks., raised and educated in Cawker City, Ks. I worked in agriculture most of my adult life as a sales correspondent for a farm machinery manufacturer, owned a livestock equipment business for 15 years and before retiring worked as a farm laborer for 20 years. I've been married to my lovely wife (pictured) for 28 years. During that time we operated a small cow herd after she retired from banking. We sold the herd and now are enjoying full retirement.|

|Suzanne A||Green, Gould, Sweet & Thorp|
Dear Ken, Than you for your work on all of the above, supplying those excellent pictures and adding the maiden name for Thorp. I don't volunteer to provide photos for findagrave or take them myself when I set up a memorial I can get to because I can't do a decent job of it myself. So I appreciate the good work!
Best wishes, SuzanneA
|Suzanne A||Gilson & Georgia Stones Photos|
Dear Ken, Thank you so much for fulfilling those requests! That one stone that's hard to read -- it doesn't help that it's curved and reflects the sun as well. I can read the enlarged photo as you suggested. It's so nice that you visit your mother-in- law. Be assured there's no rush, just do it at your convenience on a nice day. I so much admire the findagrave volunteers like yourself! No one could have imagined how many helpful people would become involved. Best wishes, SuzanneA
|Suzanne A||RE: Arthur Turner|
Thank you for your effort and careful attention to this request. I was delighted to share your photo this a.m. with the family of the quiltmaker who included Arthur's name. At present we know very little about him. I will b visiting the National Archives next month and hope to get his widow's successful Civil War pension application filed in 1906. It will have proof of his death and their marriage. Otherwise, Arthur has been found in the 1875 and 1885 Kansas State censuses and the 1880 federal census, but not the 1900 census. His calculated birthdate varied in these from 1839 to 1842. If he was born a slave, it is quite possible he didn't know his birthdate. However the early date you have on that other grave doesn't sound right for a Civil War soldier, where the average age was 22 or a birth date around 1841 or 1842. The duty was physically demanding and those who served at 30 or over were usually on lighter duty or mounted. I don't see how a man over 50 could have done it. I'll let you know anything further we learn from the pension file. Thanks again for your great help! Suzanne A

That's fine Ken. I understand and Thank You!
|Joan Carlson||Otte headstone|
Thanks so much for searching for the Otte headstone. I was told all of the Ottes (at least 10 of them) were buried together at Reformed Cemetery along with daughter Dena and Albert Rotman. It seems very odd that there is no headstone, but I sure appreciate your trying to find it.

I found them in the Osborne Co. Kansas Burials 1866-2000 by Rothenberger.

Thank you for the names of Ed's and Rosemary's sons. They are my 2nd cousins once removed. Sorry, but I don't know the connection between the Travis family and Sue Ann Scanlon. Perhaps a married sister to Rosemary?? Thanks again. Miriam

Thanks for sharing! I wish I could give you Ed and Rosemary's children's names, but my mother did not have them in her family information. Ed was my second cousin on my mother's side.
