Lynn H Ray
Does anyone know in details about Lynn in Kansas? He was one of my mother's brothers. He was married to Myrtle ? for many years divorcing in 1968. They had not been living together for at least a decade before the divorce. She remained around Port Arthur, TX and is buried I think in LA where she grew up. I have a letter from Myrtle to Lynn's father. He had written to her to find out where Lynn was if possible. His father died in June 1960. Lynn's mother died in June 1958. My mother died in 1957 so I am searching for details as all his immediate family has died now. I have received the remainder of the family pictures and letters but would appreciate any information that I could have. I am not sure if Lynn knew of his mother's passing or his dad's at the time anyway. Myrtle said in the letter that he had come to see her but said he would never be back although he would stay in touch with her. He would write but when she quickly replied, her letters would be returned because he was already no longer at the address of his last letter. I know his family knew that he passed away in Kansas. I am not sure if anyone was aware of his death at the time, attended his funeral or anything. He had lived with Myrtle after WWII in Wichita KS. He was a pilot during WWII. I don't think he was mad at any of the family just didn't seem to settle down at some point but then apparently he did later on in KS. I have some pictures but any available would be wonderful. One of the family said they thought he was mayor in some town in Kansas. Do you know about that? Thanks so much, Karen

RE: George D Barclay
Hello Christina,

I apologize for the delay in thanking you for the BArclay family transfer. We're getting ready to work on the site and will definitely get in touch with the current manager to see if he will transfer George D, also.

Thanks again,

RE: Martha Estella Meisenheimer Sallee
Do you know anyone buried in that cemetery so that I may place her there? No I am not related, but her son was a close friend of mine

Photo of Robert Knowles
Christina -

Thank you sincerely for taking the time to go out and get the photograph of the headstone for Robert Knowles. He was the husband of my great-great aunt. I am left wondering why he died at the relatively young age of 31, but that is a mystery for another day.

Thank you for this kindness.

Thank you very much for starting this memorial and adding the stone picture of Fronia Clark.
This is my husband's grandfathers little sister.
I have been looking for a long time for her parents grave sites. I still haven't found a picture but I found the information of where they are buried and I have started a memorial for both of them and sent in the request to attach them to her memorial. so good to finally connect her to her parents. No one should be left alone, now I feel she has been found and connected again on earth and in Heaven.

Relation to Kenny Theis
I checked on the connection with Kenny Theis, and he would be one of Frank Theis' sons. Frank was my dad's uncle.

Thanks for all the edits and contributions to the site.

I am related to a Kenny Osborn...his mom was a Theis and is my father's sister.

Thanks so much for the trip to Maud. Timothy is my brother, and we have not been able to see his headstone in all of this is much appreciated. It is a large cemetery, but if I remember correctly, you would drive down the most easternly middle road, and it is about half-way down on the left.

We never seem to make it back to Kansas much, but I do appreciate your efforts there.

Thanks so much for the picture of the marker for Joseph. I did not know about the Fold3 site, but I will definitely check it out. Thank you for that information.

Timothy Theis is buried in Maud Cemetery in Cunningham near Vivian and Harold DeWeese. I would be grateful for a photo of his gravestone.

Your contributions to the Theis memorials and the site are very appreciated.

RE: Joseph Theis, Cunningham KS
I was asking for a picture of the military marker on his grave....I thought I remembered seeing one. His military service is not listed on the headstone pictured.
Thank you.

RE: Stafford Cemetery
Hi Christina,
Something is not right here; I have left a message to those family/researchers who are requesting Photos of their love ones that are buried in the Mausoleum at "The Angeles Abby Memorial Park" in Compton, CA. I was rather confused as to how you and I are connected with Stafford Cemetery..I don't even know where that Cemetery is. Sorry for the confusion..I

Where are you?
Christina, are you in Kansas? There was a child, Ruth Mitchell that died sometime before 1910 probably in Hutchinson, or at least Hayes county that I would like to find more info on. Any ideas?

MG "mamie" Tyler
Thank you so much for posting this headstone. It was a picture of Grandma Mary Grace Perkins Tyler that I found only a few years ago that started my amazing genealogy search. Because of her I was able to find my family back many generations. Of the many people and dates and lives I was able to trace I couldn't find her death date. And of all the members I have found I wanted desperately to find her. It was a death certificate of her daughter, my great grandmother, that someone posted in Ancestry that I was able to find "Mamie". I didn't have this nickname for her. Again, thank you, thank you so much.
