Bio Photo Please help me process your edit requests by sending me a personal email to alert me that you have sent through a correction if you see that it has been a few days and the changes did not take place. With the new system there are no notices sent to the contributors that there are edits waiting to take place and we usually have to randomly stumble across them, or check daily.
I am an amateur "genie" researching many family lines in both my husband's and my own family.

During the summer of 2010, we re-traced the path of the wagon trains that brought our families out to Kansas, which took us through MO-IL-OH-PA. During our trip we not only visited the Historical Societies, but also many cemeteries where we cleaned or uncovered headstones, took photos, and documented the information for not only our records, but for future generations.

HEADSTONE PHOTOS: My husband and I have spent considerable time, and in some instances driving great distances, battling weeds, heat, rain, bugs and critters to take these photos. Saying that...please feel free to use any photo for your family records. Please be respectful and do not re-post to any other memorials on FAG or any other public grave website. Should you find any questionable information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This summer 2014 we are working on Lincoln Cemetery in Lebo, Kansas and Arvonia Cemetery in Arvonia, Kansas.

My husband's family lines are: Clewell, Cryder, Clester, Brink, Donley, Dixon, Derrick, Downs, Reid, Louthan

My family lines: Hitchcock, Higgins, Homire, Heskett, Van Buskirk, Meek, Robinson

Happy hunting!

Still looking for Otto's end. Do you know if it was George, Iowa marriage record, or Charles, Census records. Louella is in my dad's line. Thanks, Melissa

Roger Van Buskirk transfer
Of course, I'm always happy to have a memorial go where it will be cared for.

Hi Nancy
Could you transfer Mary Margaret (McNeil) Buker to me? She is my grandmother and I would like to update her information and include some photos. Thank you!

Wesely cemetery- Hopetown (Ray)
I changed the name of the cemetery to Hope Town I did not put wesely but it is a good story that you wrote about it, cleaning and trying to restore you relatives stones. Since I was little and lived in the neighborhood I have always heard Hopetown Cemetery. so I did not put another name for the cemetery. I have tried to work with the Township person, asking if she would check with a probe where my grandfather's grave is on his left side to see if there is a body there and if I could put grandma a stone there, but things came up and she never called back so I still will try to see if I as a grand daughter can put a stone beside her husband Henry C. Ray.So then Henry and Mary M. Ray can be viewed as husband and wife, this is my dream as a grandchild. I corrected it (:)
