I hope that my entries aide you in finding your family. MY PRIMARY INTENT is to get the information up from the stones & records for those that haven't found the burial spots of their loved ones and to preserve information from these stones. Please note, many are put up from cemetery records...as is. I'm aware that there are many errors in these records, but I rarely make assumptions as to proper spelling, etc. with the exception of death month which is often based on interment date. Generally speaking, I do not research each memorial. If you add something to one of my memorials, please notify me through the edit tab so that I can update the memorial.|
Any photos I have posted are gifts - free for family or friends to use as you please for non-commercial purposes. I would be happy to transfer any of your relative's memorials I have created that are unrelated to me - please let me know the relation. I'd prefer they be with someone in their family or someone with a connection to complete a more fitting memorial!
I'm human, I make mistakes. If you find some, please use the edit button on the memorial to advise me. Patience is a virtue - I am not retired and have young children, but will address emails as soon as I can.
A special THANK YOU to those who visit my family. I TRULY appreciate it - it means the world to me!:

*~* MY SPECIAL FINDS: *~*
After 30+ years of research, I finally found:
My GG-Grandfather Gustave "Gus" Werner in May of 2012 as well as his twin baby girls and 2 more of his baby granddaughters. (thanks to FindAGrave & J F-B)
My GGG-Grandparents Joseph Newby and his wife Letitia Hastie (Dark) Newby in August of 2012 (good old fashioned research).
Another GG-Grandfather William Lewis Horn found March 6, 2013 going through old funeral home records. Cemetery records were not available for June 1, 1914 to October, 1920. He died June 15, 1914. Go figure! :)
~ My FaG Projects: ~
I'm currently working on photographing & documenting burials in (primarily) 4 Wyandotte County, KS cemeteries:
- Mount Hope (atleast 3/4 done) All memorials from the cemetery records are posted, and about 90% of the stones. We are still finding burials not in the records. (I had 5-600 photos added to my memorials without being told. I am currently going back through and updating so bear with me there.)
- Quindaro (About 80% of the memorials from the cemetery records are posted)
- Woodlawn (just getting started)
- Oak Grove (a friend is just getting started)
(I can also do look-ups on these 4 cemeteries.)
I also do some work in Memorial Park, Highland Park, Chapel Hill & Mt Calvary & anywhere else in the area that the wind blows me that day. :)

Hi KsCityKim. I wanted to fill your request for her, but sadly I never found her. I just didn't want to post a problem. So they won't be overlooked by other volunteers. I will do my best to go back, but it's a little ways away. Thank you for your time.
Sorry, Kristy Rice

Thank you for posting the inscription of Jacob and Mary's grave marker. I do have a photo of it, but I didn't post it because the lighting was all that great. Yours shows better shadowing which makes it much easier to read. You are more than welcome to post it to Mary's memorial page, too, if you'd like.

|Anonymous||RE: Photo Request Fulfilled|
Hi Kim. Wish you were a Jeselnik. I spent six hours yesterday trying to get them straight and still haven't. Your photos have helped. Yes, I am on Ancestry.
