Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired from Geary County USD #475 in 2008 after 26 years of service. Grew up in Junction City, KS. Take photos at area cemeteries and post them to Find A Grave. Glad to transfer memorials upon request.


Beneath the boughs of ancient trees
A little flag defies the breeze
And every carvings's stark relief
Reminds us of a day of grief.

The flowers in the vase soon wilt
And over time, the markers tilt;

The letters on a stone may blur
But even after decades stir
The memories of those before,
Of how they'd smile and laugh and roar.

And standing on this gusty hill
I think that they are with us, still.

----Don Munday (KC Star)

RE: Cailloz photos
Thank you. John & Margueritte Cailloz, are the parents of Frank Cailloz, but for some reason the they have it spelled Calloz on their stones.

The Galloz one was a duplicate, so I let the person that set up the memorial pages know.

I'm hoping to have the parents listed as (Cailloz) Calloz on their memorial pages. Maybe that will clarify it somewhat.

Appreciate your noticing.

Cailloz photos
Thank you for the wonderful photos of my Cailloz ancestors. Old gravestones are so interesting and add so much to the memorial page.

If you ever need a photo from the Martin, SD cemetery, let me know.

With much appreciation,
Joan Greenough

Esto Homewood picture
Thank you so much for taking this picture. I didn't think that I'd ever get to see the grave. One thing - her name is Esto, not Esther. I'm interested in that since I believe my mother, Esto, was named for this little girl. And mom's sister was named Blanche. Their mom was a Homewood, so the family ties are there.
