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

Yocum
Hi, I noticed you are researching the Yocum's. I was wondering if you had ever come across a Mary Jane Yocum b. 1833/34 in Oh. or IN. She married James Marion Stultz in Buchanan Co.,MO 26 Jan. 1854. They farmed in Rush Twp. They are both buried at the Henry Gore Family Graveyard not far from Sugar Creek Cem. I haven't been able to find her parents or siblings. It has been suggested that she was the daughter of George W. & Catherine (Montgomery) Yocum but their daughter known as Jane is Sarah Jane. Mary Jane has been a very tough one to learn anything about. I would be thrilled if you could help me find out who her parents and/or siblings were.

McFadden family
Hi Stephen,
Thanks for all your hard work. I just want to mention some things about the McFaddens buried in St Ann's Cemetery, Effingham, Kansas.
Firstly, did you ever find Bridget McFadden's name on a marker in the cemetery (monument # 102660403)?
Secondly, John Edward McFadden (123154620)is Bridget's son, but he is not buried there, so it makes it confusing to anyone looking at his name being listed there. I have never seen anyone listed as if in a cemetery who was not there before. Anyone who doesn't know, would think he is buried there. He is buried in Kansas City.
Next, Patrick E McFadden (wife Mary C Doyle)& Edward E McFadden (wife Catherine Donahue & son Ralph)are sons of Bridget & Edward, and they are buried in St Ann's. All the McFaddens in St Ann's are one family, except the Richard, who died in 1883. I do not know who this is & would love to know. Bridget & Ed had a son Richard, but he died in Denver in 1903. His obit says he was the brother of Edward. I believe Jean McFadden Falley is also mentioned somewhere (probably in her father Wm Clyde's info) She is his daughter, but again is not buried in St Ann's. She's in Topeka.
One more question for you - you mention you live in or near Monrovia & know that cemetery. Are there any McFaddens buried there ? I suspect not. Did Monrovia have a newspaper ? If not, where would their news have been reported in the 1870s & after ?
Thanks for any help, and for all you have already done. Hope my info helps straighten out the McFadden family. Susan B

Gratitude
Steve, I so appreciate all your Findagrave work. It has helped me so much in my family tree work. My wife has a number of relateds buried in Atchison County. So thanks. Thanks, too, for responding so nicely to my several requests for edits. J. Keith Cook in Omaha. (#4886444)

PS...Since you do commercial art in the KC area I'll ask if you know, or know of my nephew Jonathan "Jon" Cook. He is president of VMR, an advertising firm headquartered in KC. (I think I have that firm name right. The offices are at the old KC airport.)
