Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Cherilyn, 38yo, mother, midwest transplant from San Diego, CA. I have been taught since a young age, the importance of history and documentation. Having been blessed with two aunts who have documented both my maternal and paternal trees to the 1600s, I have chosen to use my itch to help others.
Have been a professional photographer by trade.

Volunteer in the Kansas Room of the Independence Public Library, where we research and document all historical and geneological aspects of Montgomery County, Kansas.

Believe in hope chests, hand-me-down quilts and photos.... take them often, store them digitally, write on the back! :)

Current projects... Trying my best to fulfill requests in Neodesha and surrounding. Recently finished writing a book on the Montgomery County Poor Farm.

Old Projects.... recently comfortable with continuing progress on Gragg/Boorigie lines, documenting the Harrisonville Cemetery and working on getting the owners of the land where a cemetery is, to allow me to clean it up, fence and sign.

Geneologist, writer, photographer and mom. Feel free to email. Love questions and requests.

Dear Cherlyn
Do you know if there are any Hale's in the Mt.

Many thanks,

Moss Agosto tombstone

Was my grandfather. His name is Melchione (Moss) Agosto. He had no middle name. His Son was Moss Lew Agosto. So the senior should be listed as Moss Agosto not Moss Lew Agosto. Thank you

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
