Bio Photo Please help me process your edit requests by sending me a personal email to alert me that you have sent through a correction if you see that it has been a few days and the changes did not take place. With the new system there are no notices sent to the contributors that there are edits waiting to take place and we usually have to randomly stumble across them, or check daily.
I am an amateur "genie" researching many family lines in both my husband's and my own family.

During the summer of 2010, we re-traced the path of the wagon trains that brought our families out to Kansas, which took us through MO-IL-OH-PA. During our trip we not only visited the Historical Societies, but also many cemeteries where we cleaned or uncovered headstones, took photos, and documented the information for not only our records, but for future generations.

HEADSTONE PHOTOS: My husband and I have spent considerable time, and in some instances driving great distances, battling weeds, heat, rain, bugs and critters to take these photos. Saying that...please feel free to use any photo for your family records. Please be respectful and do not re-post to any other memorials on FAG or any other public grave website. Should you find any questionable information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This summer 2014 we are working on Lincoln Cemetery in Lebo, Kansas and Arvonia Cemetery in Arvonia, Kansas.

My husband's family lines are: Clewell, Cryder, Clester, Brink, Donley, Dixon, Derrick, Downs, Reid, Louthan

My family lines: Hitchcock, Higgins, Homire, Heskett, Van Buskirk, Meek, Robinson

Happy hunting!

Thanks for the transfers.
Thank you so much for transfering the memorials for Robert J. Allen #93108127 and his wife, Margaret Helen (Cross) Allen #93108091 to me. I will take good care of their memorials. I was wondering if you could tell me where you found the names of Robert's parents? Thanks again and have a nice evening.

Check out your edit tab.
Just in case you don't know already: you can now easily see all the edits sent to you by other contributors by clicking on the "Edit" tab on the upper right hand corner of your contributor page. If their is a number below the word "Edit" in parenthesis then click on it and see how many edits you have received. I sent some info. to you to be added to the memorial of Robert J. Allen #93108127.

Would you consider tranfering this memorial and that of his wife to me if they are not relatives of yours. I would love to manage their memorials. Robert J. Allen is a distant relative of my husband. Thanks so much for creating their memorials and for taking & adding such nice photos of their gravestones. Have a nice day,

Regarding Mary Margaret Donley at the following link, I am a great grandson of Jenny Donley Mitchell, her daughter. My family's notes have our great great grandmother's maiden name as Mary Margaret JOHNSON.

RE: Franklin Charles Black
Hi Nancy,

It's great to hear I got to help someone else with their research. I transferred Zola Black to you so you can update everything on her. If you have anyone else out here you need pictures of let me know and I'll see if I can help.

Hi Nancy and Bob my name is Brittany (even though the name says Carol) I would love to hear what you know about Albert and Jess Sr & Jr Clewell. And if you didn't know much about Franklin I can give you that information as well he's my great uncle by marriage. Thank you for the picture of his stone I couldn't find it when my parents and I were back in Illinois this last August and I combed Oaklawn! Thank you again!

Emma A. Sargent #43490094

Emma Sargent is linked to her brother, Adolph Sargent. ** show that they were half siblings. They were full siblings. They both had the same parents. If it is possible to remove the **. I would appreciate your help. Adolph was my great grandfather so I know this family quite well having worked on them for over 16 years. Thank you for taking time to read my note. Sincerely, Jackie

PS I tried to send a message to you e-mail, but it failed to send.

Nancy, Thank you for your correction suggestion about the duplicate; but if you'll look at the burial location, these are two separate people, one buried in Everlasting Life and the other Christus. Hope this clears it up.
