|Bio and Links|
I have enjoyed genealogy as a hobby (my family says addiction) for over 30 years. Apparently I inherited this interest from both sides of my family. My paternal great-grandmother was left motherless at age 18 months and raised by a foster family. After she married, she was committed to learning all she could about her birth family, passing this interest to her daughter and granddaughters. I was very fortunate to have access to their records to build on when I began my own research. My maternal grandmother was a source of inspiration and encouragement until her death at age 92. Her correspondence with family members provided me with many clues to help research our family. |
I photographed all of Goodrich Cemetery in Linn County, KS, and parts of other local cemeteries, but most of the memorials I've posted are for family members. If you copy a personal family photo that I've posted, please give credit. This gives other researchers a reference if they have questions. If you have additional info or are related, I would love to hear from you. Thank you to all who have taken the time to add flowers and photos.

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Hi Kim, Thanks for catching my mistake and bringing it to my attention! I am sorry to have messed up! The group photo is Sarah and son Charles and I can't recall the 3rd.
Please let me know if you want to manage any of my memorials.
All the best, Debra

I did not find a pic of Charles but did find one of Laura on Ancestry.com. It was posted by the Kerr descendants so maybe you've seen it.

Thank you very much for transferring my great-great-grandmother Melissa's memorial to me. Much appreciated. Vern
|Marilyn||RE: Ralph Marshall|
I think I have asked you before, but can you tell me how you might be related to either the Leeper or Stonehocker family lines as these are my two main lines that I am tracing.
Thanks for the death date correction also.

I just entered two of William's children, Phyllis Russell and William Billhymer into the database, and linked them to their parents. I noticed William the elder's memorial was transferred to you, making me think you might be a relative of the family.
If you are, and you'd like me to transfer the memorials for Phyllis, her husband Clarence, and William the younger to you, drop me a line and I'd be happy to do so

Kim: When I added this memorial, it was from the notes of the original inventory that was done in the mid 1990s. You brought to my attention the inconsistency of the dates in the inscription so I finally was at the cemetery to verify the correctness. However, there was no inscription on or near the stone. So I don't know where the person who inventoried this cemetery got his information. If you have anything that you want added to this memorial, I would be happy to assist you. Vicki

Hi Kim, Im wondering if Memorial# 40467358 Mr. Samuel B. Graham's first name could have been George B. instead?
Mr. Graham's son John that married Mary Marshall, her father's name was Samuel Marshall. Could there be a mix-up in the first names? I have a George B. Graham with the same birth & death dates as your Samuel Graham Memorial# 40467358.
Thanks for your time, Connie
