Adlie Jacob Fanning
Hello! I'm researching my family tree on the Fanning's, but I need to know whom Adlie Jacob Fanning was married to. The only information that I have is that she was born in Kansas about 1896. Between her and Adlie Fanning, they had 5 children. Anything you can find would really help.
Thanks for looking for these people.

Thank you so much for the photo of Ken's tombstone. Our family appreciates your efforts a lot. Don't know when, if ever, we will return to visit, so this helps.

RE: Taking gravestone photos
Thanks for the link to the site for taking gravestone photos. I have added it to my bio. area. It is very much appreciated. This is the same site I came across several months ago. It really helped me. I just wish everyone would read it before they added some of the photos I have seen on Find A Grave! It seems to me that if you cannot read the names or dates in the small photo that is on the memorial it probably isn't good enough to begin with. I plan to retake some of mine just because I am not happy with them. Thanks again, Farm Girl from MO.

I edited my contributor page to show my e-mail address but it will only remain there for a short time. I sure appreciate your offer to send me the link to the photo taking site. Thanks so very much, Farm Girl from MO.

RE: Taking gravestone photos
Thanks for the link to the photo taking website. Can I add it to my bio. as well? I think I came across it myself a while back but forgot to see if I could add a link to the site. Can you clue me in on how to do it?

Also thanks for your words of encouragement for us farmers. My husband and I are both life-time farmers. I drive the tractors and trucks and help with the livestock. We took some cows & calves to the sale barn this morning. Feeding two twin heifer calves on bottles. We raise about 100 head of calves each year. Keeps us busy along with planting & harvesting crops and putting up hay. Don't know how our daughters will ever be able to farm. Cost of land around us is skyrocketing! Equipment cost, etc. is also getting very expensive. Again much thanks for the message you sent, Farm Girl from MO.

Thank you so much for the pictures. I think pictures add so much to the family tree. Would it be all right if I add the pictures to my Ancestry tree? Again thank you very much.

your hard work
It is so refreshing to see someone on Find A Grave with a high number of memorials NOT post negative comments in their Bio. Thanks for all your hard work and positive attitude!
