Bio and Links
Bio Photo 01/12/2014: I believe I am completely caught up with Find-A-Grave corrections. Because I am no longer living in Lyon County, I have transferred almost all of the Maplewood/Memorial Lawn memorials to amazing FindaGraver Becky Doan, who is regularly at the cemetery and better equipped to do any research you might need.


I fell in love with cemeteries when I moved to a small Midwestern town and realized the town's entire history really was buried in one place.

My first book, SHADOW ON THE HILL: THE TRUE STORY OF A 1925 KANSAS MURDER, about the murder of Coffey County farmwife Florence Knoblock, was released in 2013.

Hi there! You posted the same photo for George and his wife Mary but the stone only lists Mary's name. Is this an error? Does George have his own stone or his own carving on the side? I need to validate that he's interred there but the stone photo doesn't help me. Hopefully you can. Thanks!

I was just reviewing my memorial for my 3 gggma and discovered that my picture of her stone is gone and a picture you added to my memorial is not Elizabeth's marker. That is her daughter Emma's stone. Could you please remove that picture so that I can put the right one back on. Thank you so much.

I was wondering if you would consider transferring
her memorial to 46814593. I have relationships to
her parents and siblings. I'm was acquainted with
her parents and siblings. Thanks for your consideration.

I am asking your permission to present that photo on my website in the Laid To Rest section. My website is 100% non-commercial and for the research and enjoyment of those interested in the 16th Ohio or Civil War in general. Please let me know if it is ok to use the photo. Also, thank you

Please correct her father the one listed has the wrong name and was born after her. Her correct father is Gilbert Strong b. 3/2/1770 d. 6/12/1861 #10382019. Thanks for all your help.

My sister and I have been trying to determine the family of our great-great grandmother, since the 1990's at least! We finally found them thanks to lots of detective work. George W Harris was her father!! Your efforts have helped us find more of our precious family. And right there in Coffey County, KS where they got married!

Thank-you so much!
