RE: M. Patterson 94213229
Hi Cheryl,
That would be great! My Great Grandfather Mahlon Patterson would be buried alone. His wife Ida (maiden name Hosack)and children are buried in Memorial Park cemetery in St. Joseph, Missouri.
Some of the Hosacks are buried in Kansas around Maple Hill and Willard.
Thanks again,
Susanne Patterson

RE: M. Patterson 94213229
Hi Cheryl,
Thank you for your response. I am wondering if you still have her records that she gave you? Did she then get her information from an actual stone marker?
Thanks again,
Susanne Patterson

M Patterson Uniontown cemetery
Hi Cheryl,
I was wondering if you could look at the records again for M Patterson in Uniontown cemetery. It sounds like the only records is from Penwell funeral home. Could you check Penwell Funeral home records again for any information? The death date is correct but I show from different census that he was in his 30's when he died. Also was there any information on who the informant was that gave the information to the funeral home? I tried calling a Penwell funeral home I think in Topeka and they gave me some numbers but no one could help me. Where is this Penwell Funeral home that has the records?
My Great grandfather was Mahlon Patterson and according to an article in the Alma Enterprise on Fri.Sept. 20, 1907 it states:
Mahlon Patterson died at his home near Willard Sept. 6th. He had been suffering for the past six months from the effects of an accident which befell him last spring. In the accident one of his ribs was crushed in, causing a continous pressure over his heart resulting ultimately in his death. Mr. Patterson was a former resident of Kaw where he was well known, having resided there for a number of years. He leaves a wife and family. His wife's name was Ida maiden name Hosack. Thank you, Susanne

Thank you for the update. I tried to remove it from my flower and the [Delete this offering] button isn't removing it. I don't know if you can go in and delete it, but I do appreciate you for placing it in the bio. I'll check periodically and see if I can delete it. Thanks again.

RE: Jane C. Stewart, again
2 cemeteries - 1 person
One cemetery is in memory, the other is the actual resting place.
This family has done this with several of their deceased member, and it does get confusing.
Thank you for the update.

RE: Oops! Jane C. Stewart

Father-Samuel McBride(68979015)
Mother-Ann Struthers McBride(68979043.
My apologies.

I am sorry, some of the data are still there, but some were gone so I jumped to conclusions. I have not looked back at this part of the branch for awhile so I just assumed that you may have edited the ones I had in there after I got your message. Thank you for all your help -- again so sorry.

RE: Woodcock graves in Lynn Creek Cemetery, Kansas
I am not sure what you are doing with the Woodcocks etc. I have researched the Mellinger family through ancestry and my father and his cousinss records and research from records they obtained back in teh 60's.They are my family - my father's grandmother was a Mellinger. I had made the family links and places of birth, death etc, but now they are not all there? I don't understand why you had them removed.

I check it out, but not one of mine. I sent you edits to update Ann's memorial with this additional information. Thanks for letting me know.

I think it is wonderful of you to do so much research. I can't get out much anymore especially walking graveyards. I can do the obits at home and TGS is holding them for me. They have discontinued keeping actual copies because they are getting on Find A Grave as soon as they die but I asked them to keep the old ones as long as they have room.
Thanks, Nancy

RE: Joseph Wagener, Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka
I think it must be Jan. 20, 1946.

His obit was on the same page as my great grandfather's obit, who died on Sat., Jan. 19, 1946. So if Joseph died on Sunday, it must be the 20th, the next day.

Their obituary can be found on - it states it was in The Topeka Capital-Journal on September 18, 2002. If you cannot find it, I will send you a copy; but, will also put it in my tree.
