Thank you kindly for your efforts to find William's stone. I appreciate your mentioning that the whole section has no stones--that may explain why I can't find his brother, Calvin.

It would really help if I could see who is buried next to Nellie. Is it possible to take a photo next time you are there?

I just noticed you now maintain both of these memorials. Just curious how you are related. They are my 2nd great grandparents - would very much like to know if you have info on their children, especially their son, Walter Butler Brown (my great grandfather). Thanks!

RE: Marty Puckett memorial
I made a memorial for my sister's husband Marty Puckett unaware that you had already made one. Would you mind deleting yours as mine shows where he is buried.

Mark, thank you for transferring maintenance of my grandfather, James E. Comer Sr., to me. Jerry Warren, '59.

Old Oak Grove Cemetery
Mark, I have an ancestor buried in the so called lost, Old Oak Grove Cemetrey. TiagoRose said it existed as late as 1974. Was wondering if you ever found it. Would love to be able to see Burwell Nowlin's tombstone, as well as the two Stewart brothers markers. Burwell was my 4th great grandfather and the two boys were his grandsons. All disappeared from Ohio after 1860. Just recently found them here on Find A Grave, other family members are also missing in the area. Can you help? I'm in WV and can't come to the area to search for probably several years. The cemetery lookup gives a discription of just where it should be. Perhaps contact with the property owners could yeild some help? Regards. Rick Nowlin

RE: Memorials
Thank you for your kind words. It bothers me to just find name, DOB and DOD....(seems so cold) how can we trace/find our relatives/family/friends with just that info? So I just put my foot in my mouth, and type on, ha. take care, Betty

RE: Knowledge
What a great project!!! I used to teach elementary school in Chanute, so it is a small world. I now live in Edmond, Oklahoma but like to keep track of things in southeast Kansas. Thanks for all you do to promote family genealogies.

RE: Knowledge
Glad to help! I just happened onto the family, and noticed that duplicate. What town are you doing your virtual cemetery for? Are you from Kansas? I grew up in Howard, Kansas and like to work on getting families in southeast Kansas linked together.

Thank you Mark for the photo of my great great grandparents and their daughter Margaret headstone. I had called the cemetery years ago, and they weren't finding James buried with his wife Mary. The mystery is solved, and I can't thank you enough! Best, Denise Ilgenfritz-Thrasher

Thanks Mark!
I think either Bob Booker or Michael Smith on FB can be resources for obituaries.
