|Bio and Links|
I spent my childhood on a farm in 1950's Brown County, Kansas and was excited at the age of 11 when we moved to the 'big' city(pop. 2500). Today I live near a bigger city, and naturally, I miss the simplicity of life I experienced on that farm. I learned in more recent years that my great grandfather Charles bought that farm in 1904 and gave it to my grandfather Henry. |
Henry and his parents came from Clayton Co., Iowa in 1868, settling on 79 acres of land in northern Brown County. Henry's father, Carl Johann Friedrich Schröder (later known as Charles Schrader), came with his family from Marnitz, Germany in 1853 when he was 16. Henry's mother, Augusta Charlotte Marquardt, came with her family from Neunkirchen, Prussia in 1858 at the age of 15. The two married in February of 1866 in Clayton Co., Iowa, the place they presumably met. They are buried in Pleasant Hill cemetery in Brown County.
My mother's grandparents, Chaffee's, were born in the U.S. You have to go back to my 7th great-grandfather, Thomas, to find the Chaffee who immigrated from England, around 1635. He settled in Mass. and it wasn't until my mother's great grandfather came along that her Chaffee bloodline began to move out of the New England states westward. Mom's grandfather who was born in Indiana in 1845, died in Brown Co., Ks. in 1917. Her father was born in Brown Co. in 1876, died in Lincoln, Neb. My mother was born in Brown Co. in 1916, married my father there in 1937, and they remained in Brown Co. the rest of their lives.

Thanks so much for putting these headstones on the Find A Grave site. It sure helps to see them when entering family info, just to verify info.
My mom's family has been fun to document.
I wondered if you would allow me to use the pics in the family research (with credit, of course)? Gail
Hi Keith - Thanks for linking Amanda with her mother in Cloud County. Appreciate it. Bill.

Thank you for all the work your doing at the cemetery. May I have your permission to use a copy of your picture of Mount Hope Cemetery? I have several Baker family members there. Marcy L Baker Memorial# 94821252 I would use it for their page at Ancestry.com and give your name and that you posted the picture here at Find A Grave. Thank you.

Thank you for entering the pictures of Josiah Jones #17824398 and Cynthia Jones #17824250 on Find A Grave. It was great to find them and see what their headstones look like...I am in Calif. and probably will never make it back to see the cemcetery...Could you link these two sites together as they were married in 1835? They are my 3rd great grandfather and grandmother. Thanks again. Renee email@example.com
