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), Wichita, Sedgwick County, Kansas? Other memorials include Lezlie S. Boast (1959-2001) and Dana Schaber (1959-1991), dear people who left us far too soon. 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."

RE: Dowell photos
I wish I had a better picture of Jim Dowell, but his face has a bad spot. I would be happy to be in charge of this. Faye

Gladys Hiatt Scott
Hi Larry. FYI.
I can't prove this but I suspect that Gladys Hiatt Scott's maiden name was Yates (Memorial # 18005664) (1909-1992) --- that her first husband was Everett Guymon Hiatt (Memorial # 18005561) (1905-1957),
but she married a second time (to a Mr Scott).
Thanks, William Wiatt.

The Ross Family in Kentucky
Hi Larry Barnes, I told you that I was going to get back with you on this, and here I am. I know that at least two Barnes relatives of yours married into my Ross family (the youngest son to Joseph; Samuel). Well, weeks later and thousands of hours of research and swollen ankles, I finally found the lineage to Joseph Harve Ross who married Nancy Williams. You created the memorial for Nancy and thank you so much, because I would have totally been lost without that! Anyway, I've linked up Joseph Ross to his father, grandfather, and gr grandfather, so feel free to take a look if time permits. I also shortened the bio up some, too. Ha! Thanks again for all of your help. - Sandra Lytch

Sarah Ross Barnes
Hi Larry, Found out where we connect. Sarah Ross Barnes was daughter to my 3rd gr Grand Uncle Samuel Ross and her mother was Elizabeth Wortham Ross. Samuel Ross appears to have been Joseph Harve Ross and Nancy Williams Ross' last and 14th son. As you know, Sarah Ross married Washington Ross Barnes. I find his middle name intriguing and most likely divulges how close the Barnes family was to the Ross family. Thank you for creating the memorial to Sarah and Washington Barnes. Much appreciated! I also noticed that this Barnes line originates in the U.S. in Maryland. I believe the Ross family moved there from Delaware, PA. The Williams family also lived in Maryland before moving in 1774 to Ohio, KY. So, the picture is getting clearer. Thanks again for all of your info. - Sandra

Nancy Williams Ross and Joseph Harve Ross
Hi Larry, I've been wondering if the Abell Cemetery is on your property as the photo of the overgrown cemetery indicates it is on old Chester Barnes' property. I noticed that you created a memorial for Nancy Williams Ross. I, in turn, created one for her husband Joseph Harve Ross. If at all possible, I would love to know if their gravestones still exist. It is possible that Joseph Ross was the son of James Ross; a brother to George Ross; signer of the Declaration of Independence. Three of Joseph and Nancy W. Ross' children married into the Ashby family. The Ashby's were close to George Washington during the revolutionary war; at least a couple of Ashby's were close personal friends of his. This also leads me to believe that Joseph was James and Eleanor Ross' older son. It is my belief that after Joseph's father James died at the age of 39, his mother Eleanor moved to Virginia (KY). She lived to an advanced age and it is said that she died abt. 1836. Anyway, getting carried away here, but I do believe that Joseph has quite the heritage. Hope you are having a good weekend. - Sandra
