Bio and Links
Genealogy has been a topic of interest since college when a Kansas History course required either a term paper or a family history; the family history topic intrigued me more than any other random topic available.

Since that time, I have continued to search out my extended family as well as work closely with the Kinsley Public Library to document those early settlers of Kinsley and Edwards County, Kansas who moved west to grow up with the country.

Whenever possible, I have found obituaries to 'flesh-out' my family members as well as those early settlers.

This avocation is truly an enjoyable journey and I have been fortunate to meet some wonderful individuals along the way.

Thank you for these lovely, clear photos of the markers in Vansburgh Cemetery near Brownell, Kansas.

There are so many markers there that need photos for the associated memorial pages. Thank you for your help.

We just noticed the ages for this James...He would probably have been another relative and not our James.

Thank you for your efforts in locating the grave and marker for James.

We appreciate knowing that there is no marker for this great great grandfather.
