Thank you
A quick note of thanks for your good work in the Crawford Co, Kansas area cemeteries. When I dig into my family connections in that corner of the world I am always pleased to find your memorials. The number of memorials you have created or maintain is impressive, but you take those memorials to the highest level by posting obituaries to many of them, and that has been extremely helpful to me in my research. Besides all that, you are pleasant and prompt in posting familial links or an occasional correction I send your way. Sincerely, Carol

RE: Eshmail & John Funke
Thanks for that memorial #. I will check that out.
My interest in the Funke family is this.
John and his son Eshmail, 13, were both killed in a coal mine explosion near where I live and I became interested in that story. I don't know any more of their family history except what obituaries of the day stated. So I do not know the names of their relatives. John's obituary mentions a brother-in-law named Peter Rihart.
I was really happy to get their birth dates from you. I have a feeling that their graves are unmarked but the obituary says that John was buried in the Catholic cemetery.
Thanks again for your help.

Hello, I would very much like to manage my uncle, Jack's, memorial on FindAGrave. I thank you for maintaining it and creating it. I would like to manage it so I can connect him to his family. His wife passed fairly recently. Thank You.
