Russell/Elllis Counties Civil War veterans
I am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many "old soldiers"that had roots/ties to Vermont. In my research of Kansas cemeteries I have found you as contributor of several monument/markers for memorial pages for s few of these patriots. What I have found so far are Cleveland Weeks in Russell Co.,Andrew Hosley in Ellis Co. and Eli Sheldon, also in Ellis.Co. There may be others I haven't found yet. May I use these photo's to post on the Vermont Civil War site? (

You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Allen Harper #19425068
Thank you so much for your volunteer time and effort! I was thrilled today to find my own grandfather's great-grandfather's memorial (Allen Harper 04/15/1819 - 03/21/1888).

My aunt shared my genealogy with me last summer back to Allen Harper and his wife, Mary Hopley Harper. I will put in a request for Mary's grave to be photographed so that she can then be added as Allen's wife.

My grandfather's grandfather (Allen and Mary's son) Frederick Augustus Harper (01/03/1843 - 10/29/1920) does not yet have a memorial on Find A Grave and is buried in Adams, Nebraska, as is the case with Frederick's wife, Cassambra Mayberry Harper. I will watch intermittently for their memorials to be added and then request for Frederick to be linked as Allen's son.

Thank you again for all of your dedication to helping others trace their genealogy.

Jefferson Co. FAG photo Hanchett
I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many "old soldiers" that had ties to Vermont. Philemon Hanchett is one such soldier. I am asking you if I may use the photo you contributed to his Find A Grave memorial, to post on the Vt. (

Burst family
According to the obituary posted on John Henry Burst's memorial he was preceded in death by his son Henry Nelson Burst on 7 Mar 1906.

You have entered two memorials for this person -
Henry Burst # 23697026 and
Nelson Burst # 23697017

Can these two be combined?

Happy to hear! So glad we could help!

RE: Philomena Pfannenstiel
Thank you for making the addition on the other pages also. Yes, it is crazy. The son, Terence, was driving in the first accident as well. He survived obviously & the young girl did not. The pain that these families endured back then is just heart breaking to me.

John E. Robinson
Hello milejo77,

I'm sorry to not be able to properly address you by your given name, but I couldn't find it.
You have kindly provided the listing for the subject person, who is my maternal g-grandfather. Thank you so much for that service.
I have pretty good information on he and his wife, Perthana Ellen Olin.
But it his father and mother that I am so desperate to find. John says he was born in Hagerstown, MD in Jan 1862. But I can't find a christening record that might contain the names of his parents in any of the surrounding churches in that area of Maryland. Also that was before they used birth certificates in Maryland, so that source is not available to me. On top of that, he as born at the beginning of the US Civil War very near a major area of conflict (Gettysburg, PA). So his beginnings are really hard to find. I can't find him in any census until age 38 in 1900. So, my request is this. Could you please help me to see if there are any records there at the cemetery office, or if there is an obituary for him associated with his internment there at Fairview Cemetery in Phillipsburg? Or any clue at all as to where I can find who his parents were?
I live outside the USA in Panama in Central America and so I am unale to visit the Fairview Cemetery myself.
I'm really hoping that I will hear back from you. I'll leave my email address here to make that easier.
Thanks so much for what you are doing to help us find our forebears.

With respect,
Rich Young

Found Arthur Baker
My husband and I were able to locate the grave for Arthur C Baker (1885-1964). In the cemetery registry they have him listed as Baker, A.C. He is the only Baker listed for this cemetery. If you find that this is not who you are looking for don't hesitate to let me know. Thank you and God Bless

Kristi Nelson
Hi! I enjoyed reading your bio and have to say that I appreciate what you do! It has helped me many times in finding my ancestors! I have a question you may or may not be able to answer! I know you generally have no connection to the graves you add, but one of my ancestors had the marriage date to the right of the gravestone picture, but nothing like that was actually included on the gravestone. Can you tell me who puts that extra info on there? This is what it said:
Husband of Kathryn O'Loughlin McCarthy (Married 3/4/1933 in Hyacinth, KS). Buried beside wife in O'Loughlin family lot.

It was for a Daniel McCarthy in a cemetery in Hays, Kansas.
I'm sorry if you have no idea, and don't want you to bother replying! I'm new to all this! THANK YOU!

Transfer of Durnil memorials
Hello, I'd like to have all of the Durnil memorials from the Long Island Cemetery (NE) transferred to me. What would be the best way for me to request this? An edit for each record, or just a list? Thanks!

I've been looking for my Great grandfather Kinney and I do believe this is him. Memorial# 22629893 Beautiful photo of the Headstone. Thank you for your time and effort! Please note that the year of death as I know is 1905. He worked for the railroad and died in a train wreck. Even zooming the photo, it's difficult to ascertain the last digit is a 5 or a 6. Regardless, this is a wonderful and satisfying discovery. Thank you again!
