I would like to ask if you would take a moment to place a flower at my dad's memorial, Gene H. Barnes (1928-2007) at Wichita Park Cemetery, Wichita, Sedgwick County, Kansas? Many thanks to those who have.
At one time or another, we have all looked at a cemetery and felt that the people buried there are not only long gone, they're also long forgotten. And if it happens to be our relatives or friends it can leave an especially empty feeling. But, Findagrave empowers us to put an end to those concerns. Therefore, I now view cemeteries as a place where people can be remembered and their stories saved and shared rather than lost.
Just one of the many lives that sticks with me is that of Daniel Cason, former slave and Union Civil War soldier who died in Newton, Kansas in 1911 at the age of 67. What incredible obstacles some have been forced to overcome.
Within most people, there is a basic desire to learn the events of their family's history. The fortunate ones get to experience those moments of discovery. As Gordon Lightfoot wrote, "to know the wherefore and the why."

Thank you so much for transferring my Tichenor cousins' memorial pages into my care! I have added biographical info to their pages hoping to connect with other family members.
Helping total strangers to locate their deceased ancestors and relatives is especially meaningful for those of us that live so far away from our ancestral homesteads.
May God bless you and yours in all your endeavors.
With heartfelt gratitude,

I added a picture of Elvan taken in 1901 to his page.
In the photo you added I pretty sure Elvan is on the Left and Nelson is on the right. So that leaves the middle one as Leonard. I have cropped pic of Leonard in my Family tree records that was cropped from this same picture with parts of Effie behind him that I got from someone on Ancestry.com.
|Roy Noack||RE: Redmon Cemetery, Cooke Co., Tx.|
Thanks for the response. If you would be so kind I would also like you to transfer Jane Collinsworth (35348949) to me. My contributor number is 47242980.
I will see if I can locate any sources in Cooke County with an interest in cleaning up and preserving the little Redmon Cemetery. Wish I lived closer so I could make a project of working through the things that could be done to save the history there. But, it's at least 1 1/2 hours from home here in the Metromess to get to the site in Cooke County.
Once again, Thanks.
|Melva "Jo" Wright||Thank You|
Larry, for the heads up on the Rhodes Cem. I have changed the name & it was very simple. Thank you for the extra efforts you go to for Find A Grave. =)
|Lisa Puyear Welch||Hello!|
Lena Ophelya Wheeler Puyear was my grandma! My father was Loren and I was born in Johnson City. I am new to this, but I very much enjoyed logging on and finding the photos. What a wonderful surprise. :) Thank you!
My mother is Margie Elizabeth Puyear - her maiden name is Barnes. It is a small world!
|Jonathan Funnell||Green Acres|
I read your message on Kay E. Kuter's findagrave page and I'm a huge fan of Green Acres too. My favorite character is Mr. Haney because I'm a huge fan of Pat Buttram. My favorite episode is Getting Even with Haney where Oliver Douglas takes Mr. Haney to court for selling the Ziffels a grab well washing machine. PRETTY FUNNY EPISODE! Who's your favorite Green Acres character and what's your favorite episode?
|Paris Garters||RE: Fred B. Shacklett|
Hi Larry. Yes you did. It was very tragic. I thought about it for a long time and decided to delete that newspaper article about my great grandfather. I am happy with my decision to do so. Hope it is not a problem. Holly
|Paris Garters||RE: Fred B. Shacklett|
Hi Larry. Fred Blant Shacklett was the second son of John Gilbert Shacklett (1859-1920). Oldest son was Earl Hanson Shacklett, my grandfather. Fred was into genealogy! I have a little booklet he wrote about the Shackletts. Holly Kennedy (Paris Garters)
