Bio and Links
Bio Photo **Note: I will add names as they exactly appear on the headstone photo; any other additions you will need to add elsewhere for accuracy, like family tree.** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in our Brandon family line.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

Re Emilie Wiese duplicate
You sent an email that you thot there was a duplicate for Emilie A. #32644844 & Emilie L.A. Wiese #33565697. If you look closer at the stone (I cropped it & it appears bigger now) then you can see that is a mother & her 32 day old baby.

Your correction made sense, I changed Harold to be the son, and not the spouse. Clayton-Mikeville Cemetery

RE: Lavina Howser
Hello Rose

I posted the pics for Lavinia Howser on her memorial site, as well for her brother Richard Wilson. I think why I could not find her on Find a grave, was do to the misspelling of her name.. In your your orignal request it is spelled Lavina, not Lavinia. When i typed in the correct spelling it came up. Hope this helps you.

RE: Lavina Howser
I went ahead and went back, got the photo for you. I typed in her name and did not come up with a memorial for her. Is there one? or would you like me to create one for her.

RE: Lavina Howser
I found her! While looking up all Howser's interred at Ivy Lawn, I found one listed as "Unknown Howser". When I looked that up there is a picture of a marker with the inscription Beloved Brother and Sister: Richard Wilson and Lavina Howser, With dates that match. I will go back tomorrow and get your photo for you. Site must be recorded under Richard Wilson.

No worries, I was there fulfilling other requests and happened to check in on the Garden of tranquility situation.

Good luck on your research, and let me know what you come up with.

Hello Yellow Rose

I went back to Ivy Lawn today, and found I could get into the "Garden Of Tranquility", However, the office there said they have no record of a Lavina Howser in their files. Could she be buried under another name or something? Let me know and I will try again.

Correct, there is no stone. I could see what the cemetery has. I'll call them tomorrow.

Good luck with your genealogy,
