Att: Kansas Genealogists - I have over 450 memorials in Rush County KS that I need to transfer as I am winding down my volunteer work.

Merged Memorials: In the past year, some people are merging memorials where I have posted grave stone pictures on them and the final result is duplicate pictures. If you see one of these, please let me know and I will delete the excess.
I am starting to go down the alphabet list for Oak Hill Cemetery, Butler, MO to get this done and this project will take some time.

Also, note that some of the merged memorials have a wrong picture on them, also. Folks have already contacted me about this problem. I assure you, that I posted the pictures correctly the first time. One lady told me that this website has a glitch in it as she has experienced the same problem.

Thanks for your understanding.

My family on my Father's side came to Bates County in 1842. My wife's family on her Father's side came to Bates County in 1870. Since 1994, genealogy has been a hobby of mine and a passion to help others seeing the gravestones of their loved ones on this website as many cannot afford to travel here and see them in person. Thus, in order to help burial records be caught up in Bates County and assist our local library in order that they can help seekers,(they use this website quite often), I have worked to completely photograph each cemetery I visit, list the pictures, them post them on said memorials for that particular cemetery. My job is winding down as several others have been diligently taking pictures and posting the. I, and 2 local friends are still going to small cemeteries where nobody is being buried today, documenting the cemetery, and taking pictures of the grave stones for posterity.

PICTURES: Pictures posted on this website are automatically copyrighted. My pictures are free to copy off when you copy off a memorial of your loved one to post in your genealogy book. I just ask that you don't sell them or post on other websites and if you share them, please give me credit for taking it.

Thank you and have fun in your adventure.

Thanks for the excellent recent photos you've posted for this cemetery, they add a lot to the memorial. I was very surprised to see that you have transferred most of your memorials. I hope that your health is still good, and that you aren't leaving because of frustration. If you have a chance please send an email, I'd like to hear from you.

By the way, I'm researching my 3rd great-grandparents, Martin & Kiturah White. Peggy Buhr or Beverly Sullins at either of the museums can tell you what you need to know about them. We were down for the Order No. 11 marker dedication at the courthouse.

I live about an hour's drive away from the cemetery so it's not feasible for us to travel down there to mow it all the time. According to my grandmother's genealogy, Clement Slayback purchased the piece of land it sits on and deeded it to the county for perpetual care, however, it might get mowed once a year for Decoration Day. I tend to think of the tall grass as "protection" from the riff-raff anyway. You'll find a few small cemeteries with tall grass in Bates County at this time of the year. I've been thinking about contacting someone for tombstone repair. There are a couple that need some repair. And Thank you for deleting your duplicate so quickly.

Are you or your wife a White/Harshaw descendant? If so, we need to talk. Are you a Borland descendant? I'd be happy to transfer the Borland memorials over to you. Let me know.

Hi, I think we must be cousins. Enoch George Burner is my gg grandfather. His son Charles Lee Burner (my namesake) is my great grandfather. Harry Enoch Burner is my grandfather and Charles Lee Burner Sr. (should have been CLB II, and me CLB III) is my father.

Anyway, there is a small typo on the website. I believe Rachel Ann Talman (or Tallman) is the correct spelling, not Talwaw.

Thanks for your work on the Burner family gravestones. I live around KC and a few weeks ago visited Oak Hill Cemetery and found most of the key graves for my line of the family.

RE: Thanks
Hi Cameron,

I want to send you a big "Thank you!!!!" for your help in locating the grave of my Gx3 Grandfather, Samuel Hall, Find A Grave Memorial# 126354274. There is no way I would have found the grave on my own.

Although I had called Crescent Hill Cemetery prior to my arrival, they were only able to tell me which section he was in (amongst 500 of "his friends" in that section). Apparently some of the older records were destroyed in a fire so they were unable to provide me the exact location of his grave.

To complicate matters, the writing on his headstone was so worn down, it was basically unreadable. Fortunately thanks to the picture you took of his headstone, I knew the general shape to look for, but honestly it was the names that you provided me of the headstones that were next to him that helped me actually locate his grave. It took me about 20 minutes to find it, but I did find it. However, there is absolutely know no way that I would have found his grave without your help!

Thank you so much Cameron, you are AWESOME!!!!!
