Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family History and Genealogy are my passions. Though I have not had much success finding many of the relitives that I have been searching for, I still continue to search hoping to break through the "brick wall".
For those of you who are interested in photos of those buried in the Mesa City Cemetery I am in the process of photographing and making all that I can available to you. I have received so many request for these photos that I have decided to take on the task of the entire cemetery. this is a very large cemetery and it will probably take some time to complete this task. Thank you

Claborn Frank Means
This has been done. Many thanks for the heads up. Roger P. Hendrix

Hi Roger, I was just looking at Claiborn/Claborn Frank Means bio and noticed that is says "Claborn Frank was the son of Claborn & Laura (Unknown) Means"
My question is: Could you please change the bio to read "Claborn Frank Means is the son of Claborn Davis Means and Anna Laura Tignor"
I just think that filling in the "unknown" would be helpful to others who may not know Anna Laura Tignor's name. Thanks, Lori

Adam Lucan Means
regarding Memorial #84434814.

The picture of Adam L. Means on this page is my great-grandfather and he was born in 1837 in Missouri and died here in Kansas in 1910 or 1911.
He was buried in the Louisville, Kansas Pottersfield. I have this picture of him. I thought you might want to correct this.

Hi Lori,

I received your email noting that you had received the email thread I sent with Ethel's granddaughter Jana. Can you let me know if you received my initial email with the photos and genealogical reports? If not, I'll resend.

Hi Lori,

The Trauntvein line is part of my family tree, as your grandfather's sister, Ethel Merilda Trauntvein was married to my maternal grandmother's brother, Arthur Elroy Gibson :) I did quite a bit of research on the Trauntvein family and connected with Ethel's granddaughter when she contacted me through Find a Grave. Ethel and his baby are buried in Price City Cemetery (Price is my hometown), and I helped my folks decorate her grave each memorial day. Buried next to her is she and Arthur's other little boy. I remember as a child thinking how sad that this young mother, and two of her babies died so young.

I'd be happy to share what I have on the Trauntvein family (I'll send you my email address using the edit function of one of your memorials)

Best Wishes,

Sorry, I do not know who placed her new marker. I photographed the entire cemetery. If there are any others you want that I have created, just let me know.
