Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a 30-year veteran of the family history hunt! I am currently working to become a certified professional genealogist. I am willing to take photos of graves and search for records in the Kansas City metro area! I speak and read fluent Spanish, and can do look-ups in records from Spanish-speaking countries, too.

I recently qualified for membership into the D.A.R. and want to share with cousins on the Wells/Hall line, please leave me your contact info and I will send you my membership number!
I am trying to connect with descendants of John Burgess Wells and Josephine HALL's children as you can tag onto my membership to gain membership to DAR or SAR. I proved my lineage from John Samuel Wells to his mother Dialthia Balerma Josephine HALL to her father Thomas Douglas HALL to his father Thomas HALL (the Revolutionary patriot from Knox County, TN)!

Surnames I am researching:

Magaña (KS, Mexico)
Martinez (KS, Mexico)

Jackson (MO)
Wells (MO, KS, KY)

RE: Nathaniel Warren photo request
Thank you so much, Sara, for your diligence. I really appreciate your extra effort in trying to locate Nathaniel’s burial place.
I certainly understand about those old, hard to read cemetery records, the misspellings, and the lack of gravestones. I deal with that, too, at my pet project cemetery. We’ve had several family members with the same surname yet each one’s surname is spelled in a different way in the records—-and even different spellings on state death records and newspaper clippings! Makes a real challenge. And only eight percent of our 50K+ graves even have a legible gravestone, or enough legibility that we can figure it out using rather primitive records.
I happened to have driven through Maple Hill a few weeks ago. My first time there and only because I happened to be on that street for some other reason. What a lovely cemetery! I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many well-kept gravestones. And so very many gorgeous floral arrangements on so many graves when it isn’t even holiday decorating time.
Thanks, again. And here's to teamwork!

RE: re: Rhinehart family in Kansas
Sara I am sorry but I do not know if they are related. I down loaded over 5,000 headstones. Sorry I can't help you with that one. If you do make a connection, please let me know.

RE: re: Carter family at Maple Hill
Sara, thanks for checking, but I don't think either the Masons or the James are related. Thank you, again, for your help. BTW, I've been curious to know if you are related to a Phil Magana. I knew him once when we lived in St. Joseph.
