Bio and Links
Bio Photo I spend weekends visiting cemeteries and photographing the art and symbolism in them. I have put together PowerPoint programs on Tombstone Symbolism and other related topics that do for historical & genealogical societies and other interested groups. I run Tombstone Tales on Facebook, featuring photos from our cemetery trips.

I have been researching family history for almost twenty years and Cloud County Kansas history for over ten years now. I enjoy both! I researched the history of Blue Hill Kansas (Mitchell county ghost town) and wrote two books on it. I am a taphophile who enjoys spending time in quiet, country cemeteries.

I'm the mom of two wonderful sons - Kody (age 24) and Kasey (age 8). I have a great husband who goes along on my cemetery excursions and helps out when he can.

I love photography and scrapbooking as well.

Please tell me more about Blue Hill, KS. I can not find anything about it n line.

I may take a drive out that way some day soon before it gets cold.

RE: Bestwick additions
Thank you. Yes, we must as I am related through Thomas' brother James (great grandfather). Had all of these old obits that were cut out of newspapers in some of my grandparents items and now, with find a grave, have found a place for them.
Thank you for all of the work that you have done in the Sabetha Cemetery.

Mark Halphide, Clara Curtis, Evergreen Cemetry, Dunn County, Wisconsin
Hi Lori, This search has proved harder than I expected. I have combed this plot high and low and can only find two markers: Laura (EVENSON) CURTIS, 21 Feb 1869 - 31 Jan 1949, and her sister Matilda (EVENSON) ARSNEAU, 19 Oct 1876 (or 7 Oct 1875 depending on the source) - 17 Mar 1952. I can see a burial spot in another location, but I poked around with my sounding rod and can find no other markers. Very strange! I'm sorry I can't be of more help. Thanks, -Dave

RE: Curtis
Hi, Yes Edward and Clara (Halfide) Curtis are buried in the East 1/2 of plot 120 in Evergreen Cemetery. There are a number of other Curtis burials there too. I think I remember seeing Curtis markers there. This information is available to you on line. Here is the link:

Search for Curtis and it should bring up the info. Thanks, -Dave

RE: Eliza Collar
Hi, There are three Collars listed in connection with plot 120 in Evergreen Cemetery:

Eliza Collar, died 2 Mar 1881, age 35, father: Samuel Halfide, mother: Eliza

Louis Collar, died 13 Aug 1883, age 74, place of birth: N. Y.

Eliza Collar, died 18 Apr 1891, age 87yr 0mos 17days, place of birth: England

It is possible that others are buried in that plot, but I have no quick way of searching for them.

Thanks, -Dave

I updated the records in Lakeside Cemetery. If you'd like me to transfer, please let me know. I have no familial connection. Thanks!
