Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from Kansas Farm Bureau and live in Manhattan, KS. I grew up in Blue Rapids, KS., which is about 45 miles north of Manhattan. I belong to the Blue Rapids Historical Society as well as the Marshall County Historical Society. My Marshall County roots go back to 1858 when my Great Great Grandparents settled on the Blue River. I have recently completed research on the Civil War Vets buried at Fairmont Cemetery in Blue Rapids and Prospect Hill Cemetery just north of Blue Rapids. I will be happy to help anyone out on researching graves associated with these cemeteries.

Greenwood Cemetery, Blue Rapids
Hello Darrell. In searching for one of my Ancestors I found him and his wife buried in the Greenwood Cemetery, Blue Rapids. The headstone and correct spelling of the last name is SHELLEY. The listing on both Harry (Ernest) Shelley and his wife Lucille (Maiden name Horalek) is spelled without the last "e" - Shelly. I would appreciate it greatly if you might change this. Thank You.

In addition, there are a few Horalek's buried in that same cemetery which would be direct relatives of Lucille, such as her parents and siblings. FYI.

Appreciate you making the requested change, Thank You.

The past two years another Find A Grave person and I have been researching and trying to document all Civil War soldiers in Lyon County, or who were from Lyon County and are buried elsewhere. I was glad to read you have been doing this in your own county. The stories are fascinating, and I think these people deserve to be remembered (as do all service men). Thanks! Becky

RE: Anna Mitchell
Thanks! Nope, I have been going through obits, etc. in my hometown and ran across it, and it seemed to be an important puzzle piece. Becky

Cynthia Logue Johns is an ancestor of mine and I am trying to link the family together and write a bio for each person. I feel it is a priviledge for me to remember these folks and would greatly appreciate it if you would transfer her site 69893898 to me to maintain. My account is 48971020. Thank you.

Mr. Brooks,

As a member of the Blue Rapids Historical Society, would you know what papers were in circulation in April 1900.

I currently have an obituary clipping for the above memorial but no date or newspaper.

Thank you,

I think you have corrected now. It was the wrong Clarence Stiles. As for Florella, I think there were two graves listed for her. The 1845 is the correct DOB. let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for your help.

Several children died young
Yes, there are at least 5 unmarked Grabhorn
graves in that cemetery. There were several
children that died young by different grabhorns.

No one has ever put the graves of the 2 wives of
George Herman Grabhorn on the internet. Those
would also be a good to find. Could be in
Kansas or Indiana.
