Peter Giersch, Jr.
Hi Patty, I have heard about your family Andes thru my late husband, Robert 'Bob' Fleming son of Fred & Wilma who had Fleming's Grocery in Lecompton. He was classmate to Iona Spencer, another Genealogist.
My Snyder line involves Peter Giersch, Jr.b. Sep 1836 to Peter (1806-1885) & Mary Cicilia Giersch. Peter, Jr married Nancy Ann Snyder-Farris 22 May 1864 in Saline Co KS. They had 2 dau- Mary Eliz. & Julia Anna Giersch. They also raised my Gr-Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Farris (1853-1927)& her parents were James Lindsay & Nancy Jane Snyder Farris & who married Wm. Henry H. Snyder in Auburn, Ks on Aug.1, 1867. Wm.Henry H. Snyder and Nancy Ann who married Peter Giersch, Jr. were brother & sister.
Nancy Ann Snyder Farris-Goersch d. Apr 4, 1910 @ Henry's home in Mulvane, KS.Bur. in El Paso Cem.Derby.
Now after all the introduction - I have never found when and where Peter, Jr. died & where buried. I am hoping you will be able to tell me what happened to Peter, Jr. Martha Fleming

Quantrill's Raid
I was in Lecompton, KS a couple of weeks ago myself on a genealogy trip to take photos of the Constitution Hall. At the Territorial Capital Museum, we were shown James O'Neill's tombstone and I made a memorial for him -- #144900001. I linked into William and Frederick Klaus' memorials. I hope that's okay with you.

Lloyd Williams
Franklin Cemetery
Hi Patty--My name is Lloyd Williams, I was reading your Information on your Gr. Grandfather's memorial in the Franklin Cem. We had to go to Kansas, City last week to pickup our grand daughter for a visit. We stopped at the old Franklin Cem. to try and find a stone for my Gr. uncle Williams. The Cem. is beside a paved 4 lane road [E.Hills Dr.] that goes into an Industrial park. There was no where to park but on this 4 lane road with our flashers on. we walked up a steep bank to get to the Cemetery. The weeds, and grass was about Knee deep all over, so that ended our search for a stone. Just thought you would like to know its still the same as discribed in your Information. Have a great day. Lloyd

William Grauel gravestone photos
I just uploaded photos of the grave of William Grauel from what remains of St John's Catholic cemetery. Perhaps you know this already, but the stone is visible from K-10 Highway east of Lawrence. I discovered this stone and 10-15 others about 3 years ago while doing a topography survey in the area west of East Hills Business Park.

You are most welcome! That is the exact reason why I do what I do. It's nice to be able to help my fellow genealogical addicts! LOL!

RE: Amanda Jane (Snyder) Giersch Mem. No. 30626692
p.s. Don't be surprised if it takes several days to get the memorial transferred. I don't always have time to work on Find A Grave every day.

Added by sister7a on Aug 21, 2009 2:18 PM

RE: Amanda Jane (Snyder) Giersch Mem. No. 30626692
Please send me a request through the "edit" and "suggest a correction" link on her page. Include your Find A Grave user ID in the e-mail. It takes me much less time to transfer that way, and I get a lot of requests for transfers.
