Please can you alter your page for Alexander Sutherland just a tiny bit ? He is not interred at Brookwood Cemetery . He is in the Brookwood Military Cemetery and there's a big difference.

I noticed the memorial you created for Roderick Earl Dick in 2009. I created one for him in 2008. I will request a photo for my memorial. He is in my maintained family history. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks much.

Ada Frier
Please add her obit to her bio, as it add's history about her life. Thanks!
20477113 memorial #
Ada Frier packed a lot of living in to her 104 years. When she died Tuesday, she was Stanton County's oldest resident.

It was only a year ago that Mrs. Frier stopped making daily mail runs with her good friend, Grace Brown. "Sometimes, when the weather was pretty bad out, I'd ask her if she really wanted to get out in it, and she would say, "Sure, I'm ready...let's go" recalled Mrs. Brown.

Mrs. Frier would ride the whole 85 mile route, rolling down her passenger side window and happily stuffing mail in the 75 rural boxes. "Everybody on the route looked forward to seeing her, it was just like a big ole family".

She was joy at the nursing home, said Mrs. Brown. You never went there thinking you were going to spirit her up, because she always did you. She took in ball games, loved horse races and camping. She was just one fantastic lady. Her son Frank said that until about five years ago his mother still regularly rode her three wheeled bike up and down the streets of Johnson City with several elderly friends.

Born on Oct. 22, 1883 in Rush County, Ada Wallace attended school in Galatia and returned to teach grad school there after three years of college. She married John Frier on April 27, 1910 in Great Bend. Eventually the Friers opened a restaurant and hotel in Johnson City in 1929, where Mr. Frier continued to work for the Santa Fe Railway until he died in 1947.

Mrs. Frier went on to become the chief cook at the local grade school. Wen she was urged to retire at age 80, she took a job cooking in a town cafe. She just worked all her life, Frank Frier remembered. She loved to cook and she was one marvelous cook, added his wife, Betty.

Mrs. Frier was a member of the United Methodist Church, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Women's Auxiliary, Rebekah Lodge, The Jolly Dozen Club and a pinochle club, where according to her son she did most of the score keeping because she had the best head of it.

Survivors in addition to Frank Frier include another son, John of Chula Vista, California, a daughter, Emily Wartman of Johnson City; four grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

Funeral services were Thursday afternoon at the Johnson City United Methodist Church with burial in the Johnson Cemetery.

The Wichita Eagle, May 20, 1988

regarding Peter Killian 64601792
I would like this memorial transferred to me if at all possible. Peter Jacob Killian was my great grandfather and I would like to connect family members and to correct his name and personal information. A transfer would be much appreciated.

Hi Missbitty,

I had already suggested some edits which still have to be approved.
I am not sure if it is you who approves the changes or if it is Find a Grave.

I went back into the memorial and tried to suggest edits but the site would not permit any further stating there is currently outstanding edits which require to be approved.

Kind regards Alan

RE: Jane Ann Fairman

Thank you for your reply, as I don't often get transfers to be, please remind me what a SAC is or what I have to do to have this family grouping of grave markers transferred.

Thank you once again for uploading this grave it means so much to me.

Kind regards Alan Rosborough

Jane Ann Fairman
Thank you for creating the memorial for my 2nd Great Aunt, Jane Ann Fairman (Nee Foster). I always wanted to find her becuase she was my maternal grandmother's aunt and my grandmother was named after her, she was named Jane Ann Fairman Foster, sadly my granny is no longer with us but I am sure she would have been delighted that I found the grave of the aunt she was named after and who emigrated from Co Donegal & Londonderry, Ireland to Canada before she was even born.

I have added other personal details and have linked her memorial to that of her parents who are buried in Co Donegal.

I have been researching my various family lines for over 30 years and would appreciate if you would like to transfer the memorial to me as it means a lot.
Thank you Kind regards Alan.

RE: Katharina
I changed her memorial page to read death in Childstown, SD. Now on to search for a burial place in that area. No wonder I could not find her in Kansas.

Katharina is my husbands 1x great grandmother. I have lots of information on their downline if you are interested. Would prefer not to exchange all of this information on this site. My e-mail address is listed on my Find A Grave page. I know that I have a picture of George Sr. and Justina with my father in law on their lap when he was 2 or under. I would be happy to share it. It is a snap shot so not wonderful, but something. I would love any photos that you may have come across also.

My husband's grandmother Katie Kliewer Redelsperger had 13 children. Anna kliewer Redelsperger had 8 children and I don't recall off hand how many Emele Redelsperger Kliewer . There are ton's of Kliewers-Redelspergers in that line....

RE: Kliewer family

George (Gerhard) Kliewer Sr. was first married to: Katharina Voth They married 21 Oct 1879 She died giving birth to baby girl Kliewer who died the same day. Katharina had 4 children ages 10 and down when she died.

Two months later he married Justina Warkentine.

Katharina Voth Kliewer
07 Jan 1859
Alexanderchal, South Russia
DOD: 26 April 1891

Their Children are:
George Jr. 02 Sep 1881
Childstown South Dakota

Shattuck, OK

Katharina Kliewer Redelsperger
22 Jul 1883
Marion South Dakota
DOD:02 Dec 1971

Cornelius Kliewer

Marion, South Dakota
DOD:09 Feb 1992
Follett, Texas

Baby Girl Kliewer
26 Apr 1891
DOD: 26 Apr 1891

I have been trying to find her place of burial other than Kansas for quite some time. I think I will add a memorial page for her that says place of burial unknown. I can attach that to him and attach the children that way. Katharina (Katie) daughter of Katharina is my husband's paternal grandmother.

Katie married Charles Redelsperger
Anna married Robert Redelsperger
George Jr. married Emele Redelsperger
That made for a huge group of double cousins.
If you want to correspond more about the family send me an e-mail.

RE: Rose Kenda
I of course do not know of any Williams family.
You are a great detective. I can see that working on genealogy can lead a person down many roads.
My family search has become addictive for me. And finding extra items is an added bonus.

I am also looking for a lost Uncle and am finding that our last name evolved through the years as my family came from the "old" country. This person my not be related but I will continue to look. Part of the adventure.

Best wishes in your hunt too.

Thank you again for unearthing little Rose.

Thank You for your response.

May I ask is any of names your are researching were listed in Rose's obituary?

I plan to look for the grave sites while visiting my other dead relatives in Leadville.

Again Thank You,

Thank you, for posting the picture of little Rose.
My Aunt Mary Habovstak is listed in a newspaper as on of her pallbearers. I am interested in finding her physical burial plot.
I understand that there is not a headstone or memorial.
My Father Tony Habovstak and grand Parents Anton, Mary and an Uncle are buried at St, Joseph's as well.
Just a part of family history.
Thank you for any info.
Of course, I do know where the Habovstak burial plot is located.

Pennington family records.
The Pennington family records were sent to me by James D. Pennington, the great-great-grandson of William Vick and Mary (Henry) Pennington. I helped James and his wife locate the grave of William V. and Mary Pennington when they made a trip to this area of Missouri and just happen to drive up to our house. My mother and I were the only people who knew where they were buried since we had just visited the cemetery and noticed that they had been missed when cemetery records had been compiled (in 1980) for all of Adair County, MO. James made a return trip to Missouri a few years later and added the newer stone to their grave site. I have James D. Pennington's mailing address but it has been several years since we corresponded with each other and I don't know if he is still living or not. I would think it would be alright to use the photo of the family records. I included his name in the caption I added to the photo today. I don't know why I didn't add it earlier.

Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.

In case you were wondering, the source on those edits I have put in (mainly plot numbers) -- is the book "Our People And Where They Rest: A Visit to 104 Old Cemeteries in Eastern Oklahoma," James W. Tyner, Maxine Tyner and Alice Tyner Timmons, American Indian Institute, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK. 1970-1985, (Library of Congress No. QE99-C5-T97) There wasn't a place for me to put that in the edit form.

Thanks for all your help! Best wishes.

Thanks ever so much for giving us the information. Facts are much better than guesses! And from those of us working on the family genealogy -- gotta love your handle!

William Elias Bishop
Help! William's gravestone is difficult to read, but looks like it says he died Jan 23, 186_ at the age of 69 years, 1 month and 21 days. I'm guessing the year was 1869

That would make him born 2 Dec 1797. No one else on Ancestry or even JVogel on F-A-G has that date.

Can you help? His mother, Teresa, was our great-great-grandfather's sister, so it's important we have as accurate information as we can find.

Thanks, MaryP
