Bio and Links
I am a lifetime resident of Hiawatha, Brown County, Kansas. I have been working on my family genealogy since 2002, and my husband's family since 2006.

A lot of the photos that I upload to Find a Grave I take time to post some additional information, like the location within the cemetery, or other things that I feel might be of interest to family members who can not make the trip themselves, or that could help them locate the stones if they do make the trip. I have also started going back and adding death notices and obits to some of my pages in Brown County cemeteries as I have time. On pages that I do not manage, but have posted the headstone pictures, I have been adding the information in the comments section beneath the picture. So please click on any photo that I have uploaded and scroll down to the bottom to see if there is any additional information for you.


"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."

RE: What do I need to do reply#2
No, wait. What I'm not able to do is add Thomas D.'s parents. John Ten Eyck #20472076 and wife Louisa #96317927. Sorry that I'm so easily confused, making it hard for you to be able to help me!

RE: Thank you and I need your help
Apparently in my excitement to add children to Thomas D. Teneyck #30129212, I've snarled the works. You told me to be patient and somehow, I impulsively tried to add Eva Iola Ten Eyck Stokes 26852961. I cannot add Louisa as history has lost track of her. Eva's husband was Herbert Estes Stokes #111271006. Thomas and Mary J. Ten Eyck's children were Louisa 1879 Wade 1881 and Eva Iola 1884. Wade has appeared. May you help me with Eva please? Thank you!

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting place of many of our "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt. Henry J. McWain is one such patriot. I am asking you if I may use the photo you contributed to his Find A Grave memorial page, to post on the Vermont Civil War site? (, or any others that may have vermont ties that you have submitted.

You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration. Deanna French

What do I need to do
in order to manage or link members of my family on Specifically Memorial#30129212 Thomas D. Teneyck (my great grandfather). I did make suggestions and they are noted on your site for him. His son, (my grandfather) Wade Ten Eyck is not linked Memorial#68929180 with his parents, Thomas D. and Mary Jane Lyons Teneycke(sic). Is it possible to link them? Any help is appreciated!

Post Script - Ellen Scott
In the article Ellen's address was still in Hiawatha and I think her daughter, Kathy, still lives there too. I don't remember if I told you, my grandmother was the sister to William Henry Dittemore, Ellen's father making her my mothers cousin.

Up Date Ellen N. (Dittemore) Scott
FYI - Found an article on Ellen -as of March of last year she was still alive. It was on her celebrating her 95 birthday, and asking people to send her birthday cards. Don't know why Dollie has a memorial already on her. Guess that is why you confirm before you put something up. Noticed she had another one that was taken down. My aunt lived 1 wk shy of her 98th. Still love the picture and it looks nice on Ellen's husband's memorial. Noticed Dollie doesn't have them linked.
