If you can find the spot on Google Maps, right-click and then select "What's Here?" That will give you the coordinates.

Capt Samuel T. Shore
Thank you for your messages on Capt Samuel T. Shore. You've got me intrigued with your identification of the Samuel Shore who was at the Poor Farm in 1910 with Capt Samuel T. Shore, son of Narcissa Jean Shore. I put that census record as a possibility on his mother's memorial, but isn't the Samuel T. Shore who was living in Prairie City, Douglas Co., KS more likely? Have you found something while doing your research on the Poor Farm?

I share your interest in Poor Farm residents. I've managed to add most of the ones listed at the Franklin Co., MO one by researching online death and census records. I think it's very valuable historical research and a way of remembering those who've been otherwise forgotten. Bev

Dan & Barbara
Day Cemetery
Hi I see you took the picture across the fence from the Day Cem Chautauque county. I would love to have a picture of Mason True Family . From the looks of the picture this Cemetery is reverting back to mother nature and really needs to be photographed for historians. Is it on private property and owners wont allow this. Or so out of the way that it would be really hard to get to ? Just Curious about this one wish I lived closer so I could try to do it myself.
If I was to travel there would I be allowed access to it ?
Sorry to bother you
Have a nice New Year

Re: Mr. Hooter
Cherilyn -Hi! No I just wandered acrossed Mr. Hooter, in my journey thru Find A Grave.It is like time travel, you start out in one state or location and end up in an other, and wonder how you got there. I felt sympathy for someone ending up in a poor farm. So left a memorial. Best wishes.

Kenneth Pohl
Hilda Koehler's Bible
Cherilyn, your message about the bible got both my wife and I excited. Hilda was sort of my second mother. She was a great traveler and I am sure she must have been in the Herinton area sometime! She never married and was and was a children's librian in New York for many years. When she retired she was a librian in Lawrence, KS. In the 1940's she joined the Women's Army Corp and was stationed in New Jersey. She managed to travel to all states in the US and also made a trip or two to Germany to visit relatives there. I was the only child of my mother, Hilda and Edna, her sisters, never married. Hilda was a great woman and I don't think there will be another like her. I would definately like to have this momento. Please let me know the cost and I will gladly reimburse you for any expenses.

RE: Ross Cemetery

I see you have been adding pictures to my memorials at the Ross Cemetery. I greatly appreciate this. I have several others I am in need of getting pictures if you have anytime or already have taken them. Thanks.

RE: correction...
Hi Cherilyn,

Yes, I have searched high and low for happened to David and Mary. No trace of what happened to them. They were there altogether with the family and then both just gone and kids scattered. I was so hoping they would be in Varner Cemetery. David was in the Civil War on Union side in a Ks regiment and then mustered out and was with his family. The only conclusion I can come to is they both died at either the same time or very close to the same time. I wonder if there was some kind of disease that ran through that area in 1870-1875? I don't know when either one of them died or's really just odd. I know that their daughter Laura and her husband died in a flash flood together many years later in Neodosha. So, it can happen but just a family mystery I have been trying to solve. Thank you a million times over for helping me...

Henry Varner
Aloha Cherilyn,

Much Mahalo for taking the photo of my 3 greatgrandfather's headstone in Varner Cemetery. He was Henry Varner. The monument is wonderful. I cannot make out any names it, sadly. But I appreciate that you did this more than I can say. I am looking for my 2nd great grandfather, David Varner and his wife Mary. They just fell off the earth after the 1870 census in Neodosha, Kansas. It is such a family mystery. Both parents vanished. The family was last found together in the 1870 Wilson County census and then in 1876 my grandmother was married to William Reason Mayhew and her parents are, thank you so very, very much for this thread to my ancestors....

Memorial updates
Hi there, Cherilyn! I was wondering if you'd received the updates I sent (via the"Edit-Suggest a Correction or Update" function) for Justin and Hazel Miller's memorials? I was wondering if perhaps they were getting sent to a spam folder or something? Just let me know, I've sent them a few times.

Talk to you soon!
