Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been collecting family history for the last 35 years. My husband and I have deep Kansas roots. His are in Ottawa, Lincoln, and Cloud counties; mine are in Wabaunsee, Pottawatomie, and Shawnee counties. Our people have been in this state since 1857, and I find more little items about their everyday lives as I read the old weekly newspapers on microfilm at the Kansas Historical Society's archives in Topeka.
I post family trees at Rootsweb and Ancestry, and post obits on the surname pages at Rootsweb if I don't know the cemetery where the burial is.

I'm currently working on four projects:
1. Working with others to photograph Mount Hope Cemetery, one of the large city cemeteries in Topeka, Kansas.
2. Reading my way through the Cloud County, Kansas, Glasco Sun, sharing obits as I find them. Most connect to one of my husband's family lines.
3. Reading old issues of the Alma Signal/Enterprise, Wabaunsee County
4. Reading old issues of the Cherokee Sentinel, Crawford County, adding obits to the Cherokee cemetery.

NOTE: If you would like me to look for additional information on burials in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, please let me know via the edit tab on the page.

RE: Powells in Mount Hope
Glad to help. I am not a relative of the Powells, but I do newspaper obituary research and use to confirm and like to try to link families together. Thanks for all you do to promote family genealogies.

RE: Millen graves at Mount Hope, Topeka
No need to transfer to me since these are not my relatives. They are relatives of one of my 89 yoa Dad's best high school friends, Kenneth 'Kenny' Harry Ramsey #'s 103739341 & 56119868, who died in a WWII training accident and whose remains are lost at sea. I was doing a favor for my Dad and Kenny Ramsey's living niece & great niece. Thanks anyway. Lee
