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.

RE: Carole (Newman) Stoudt
Are you aware this is the 2nd son in 2 years? They were my cousins whom I never met. My mom was Dallas' sister. Glad to know you figured out how to message me. Dallas was a good part of getting me started doing this ancestry research on the Stoudt side. You can always contact me at also. I'll keep that info handy about helping me out. My tree has a lot of info on the Stoudt's, including Carole's side of family, the Newman's. My tree is on under the Oswald Redwood. You have a wonderful day and thanx for the info. Darren

Alice H. Johnson-Rose Hill Randolph

Alice H. Johnson, memorial #111821856 is my great aunt. She was married to Oscar M. Johnson who was my great-grandmother Marie Victoria Johnson Beckman's brother.

I am in the midst of trying to straighten out duplicates memorials for Oscar and Alice which are managed by other Find a Grave members. Could you please transfer the management of 111821856 to me? I would greatly appreciate it.

I sent the corrected relationship link. Her father was George not John.

RE: Helen Ward
Thanks so much for doing the links and details, I really appreciate it. I have more for some of the folks at Greenwood. Sorry about the john Johnston thing, but I need to do more research as I think some of the info I have is incorrect. Thanks again.

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
