Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in Monrovia, Atchison County Kansas. I attended Monrovia Grade School, Atchison County Community High School in Effingham and graduated from Benedictine College. I have enjoyed a career as an art director/creative director in the Kansas City advertising community for over thirty years. My interest are Civil War history particularly the border war between Missouri and Kansas and the history of Monrovia and Atchison County Kansas.

I am currently doing research on the Nottingham, Geiger, Parker, Yocum, Bradley and Ledington families.

I have a vested interest in the Monrovia cemetery as it overlooks and adjoins my family farm. My father served on the Monrovia cemetery board for many years and my younger brothers and I mowed that cemetery for most of our teenage years.

Thanks, Steve

I am researching the Yocoms as they are related to me. I see that you denied my edit for the Yocam memorials. Do you have any paperwork that discusses these Yocum's/Yocam's?
I'm sure it's just a typo on the stone, but I have edited over 150 Yocum's that were in reality Yocoms, even the stone said Yocom, so I want to be sure of the spellings.
Any info you have that could shed light on this would be great.
Thanks for all you do for Find a Grave.

Col. John Daum Pardee Cemetary
Thank you for adding cemetery photos for Col. John Daum who was my maternal grandfather. My grandmother, Sarah Margaret Daum I believe is buried next to my grandfather. My grandmother Sarah Daum passed away the same time as John F. Kennedy's death in 1963. I just retired and now have more time to research my family background which I enjoy so much.

Monrovia & Lancaster Cem.
Thanks for all you have done. I started doing cemeteries in 1976. I wrote a book on Pardee and Farmington then. I am presently doing an ancestorial search on each person in the Lancaster Cemetery. Marcelline Vaughan

Henry Hinks, died 1904, buried in Muscotah Cemetery
Thank you so much for this obituary. My daughters and I searched microfilm of old newspapers and saw when he died and where he was buried, but never found this obituary.

Drollinger graves
I am trying to locate the graves of my GG Grandparents William R and Melisa Ann Drollinger. William's obituary shows he's buried in the Farmington Cemetery and Melisa Ann's obituary shows Pardee Cemetery which is one and the same I'm assuming. I found Merit Drollinger's (their son) grave at Pardee Cemetery but no mention of his parents. Do you know who would have the records for this cemetery in the event they are in unmarked graves? I would appreciate any help you can offer.

this city on Thursday, January 5, 1905. Frances O'Meara was born near Montreal, Canada, August
20, 1829. In 1835 she removed with her parents to Peru, Indiana, where she was married to
William Hubbell in 1849. To them were born seven children, of whom Agnes died in infancy and Ellen at the age of eighteen. The remaining children are Frank, of Globe, Arizona, Roger, of St. Joseph, Mo., Douglass and Joseph, of Holton. The family came to Kansas in 1871 living for a time in Centralia and Effingham, and in 1879 settling in Jackson county near Netawaka. Mr. Hubbell, the husband, died in 1880 in Nevada. About two years ago Mrs. Hubbell moved into Holton. From her infancy she has been a member of the Catholic church .... She leaves a brother, Thos. O'Meara, of Onaga and another at Effingham.
