Bio and Links
Bio Photo I moved to North-Central Kansas in late 2008, which gave me a whole new starting place for family history research! My grandmother Elsa Opal Long Vandecar (1896-1996) was the family historian, and for the last 20 years or so I've been trying to continue her legacy.

You are welcome to copy any of my gravestone photos onto other genealogy or family history websites; no need to credit me. Helping other family historians by gathering those photos is my way of paying forward all the help I've received!

Pam "LeFort" Meadows
My grandfather Laurence
Hello!

My brother found this website and sent me link. Glad to see more info where my late grandfather was in Kansas.

My dad is Lawrence Dean Lefort before he became Lawrence Dean Meadows (My late grandma Val remarried to step-grandpa Meadows. I was born Meadows but still LeFort in my heart.

My dad buried in Sacramento, CA. Found this grave too but need to add better clear picture of his grave. I visited there many times.

My late Dad was only 6 months old when my grandpa Laurence drowned. He didn't remember him but my two aunts Helen and Shirley remembered him. Thanks for share this picture and to know where it is.

I haven't gone to this place yet.. Someday, I will.. hope to meet any of you LeFort Families.. I know that my late dad's side is HUGE family cuz of great-grandpa had 17 children.. not sure if it is Great-Grandpa or Great-Great-Grandpa.

Hope to stay in touch with any of you.. I have Facebook
Pam Meadows. My Aunt Helen is still alive, one of three LeFort. That's her late Dad..

I have picture of late Grandpa Laurence and Grandma Val that my aunt Shirley had and I restored to have it bigger picture.

Take care,
Pam "LeFort" Meadows (Late Grandpa's granddaughter)

RE: Grave picture for Moses Bailey Pleasant View
Aww, what a pity you drew a blank, but thank you so so much for going to the cemetery & looking up Moses Bailey. I am too grateful, really. The cemetery was named in the newspaper obituary, and even if his name was not on a marker, I wonder why he wasn't listed in the cemetery records?! Maybe a newspaper typo? Are there other cemeteries in the area? Thanks again, Sarah.

Grave picture for Moses Bailey Pleasant View
Hi SJ... If you're near Pleasant View Cemetery one of these days and it works out for you to check on the grave of Moses Bailey, my gr. grandfather who I read is buried there, I will be so grateful. His full name is Moses Jackson Bailey. His dates were 12 Apr 1851-20 Feb 1903. His parents: Solomon & Elsie Bailey (nee Palmer, died 28 Nov 1898) may may may be buried there too. I will appreciate any info / photos and thank you in advance. :-)

Thank you
SJ, the findagrave app on the iphone has a "request" button which I assumed was request to use the picture (I'm a newby), so I sent out a bunch of them (blush, blush). So I must apologize for disturbing you.

Anyway, thank you for answering me, your welcome, your time and the graving (which made this find for me and this communication possible), the use of the pictures, and your offer to take more pictures at this particular cemetery. Awesome!
