|Bio and Links|
I live in the Southwestern part of KS. I am a genealogist and enjoy doing cemetery research for myself and for others. I am a geriatric nurse, and mother of four. I also enjoy photography, music, gardening, scrapbooking and entertaining.|
I'm so pleased to find a community dedicated to remembering and preserving the resting places of our loved-ones. (And I'm happy to know that I'm not the only one that's crazy about cemeteries!)
I'd love to hear from others in my area that do cemetery research. Maybe we can work together.

|Brent Nimmo||RE: John Sweetser|
You shoulda heard me hoot and holler with joy when I found him. Unfortunately being broken, I had to rebury his marker. I know some reputable restoration people if funds are available to put him back together.
|Amy Droste||Thank You|
Thank you for taking and posting the photos of Wilna Mary Klenke Hornung, Frank H Lampe, Catherine Philomena Droste Lampe, and Henry Frank Lampe. The photos are a great addition to my family file.
Thank you again for your wonderful help,
Please send me the Find A Grave Memorial #'s for the people you wish to attach.

Was wondering if you would consider transferring Adam Mitchell 1776-1860 to me he is my GGGUncle, from his brother John. Would like to add information on Adam. Thank you

|Larry Smith||Sam Myers, Lane Cem., Franklin Co., KS|
This person perhaps was my GGF's younger bro. I been trying to locate his grave for long time. Sam Myers married Catherine Larr in Williams Co., OH, ca 1877. They moved to Norton Co., KS ca 1879. It appears Catherine's parents and her siblings moved to Norton Co. also. Arthur O. Myers born to Sam & Catherine in Norton Co. in 1979. Apparently a son Irvin Ellsworth Myers born to them in Franklin Co.,KS in 1882. Both Arthur and Irvin are buried Lane Cem.,Franklin Co., KS. Also Catherine Larr Myers Adkinson is buried Lane Cem. She later married Henry Adkinson after Sam departed.
Samuel E. Meyers lived in Meade Co., KS in 1900. Census shows him born Jan 1855, OH, divorced. He lived next dwelling to his older bro. Jacob Meyers who was also divorced. Jacob married Hannah Larr in KS, in 1882. Hannah being an older sister to Catherine Larr. So brothers married sisters and then both couples divorced..Interesting! Do you have any thing to prove that Sam Myers is the father of Arthur and Irvin; all buried in Lane Cem??
|Brent Nimmo||Ben & Olive Sweetser|
They may or may not have been moved to Green Lawn. The last time they did sewer work at North Market they removed 27 remains to a mass grave in Section R at Green Lawn.... Are they John's parents?
|Brent Nimmo||John Sweetser Madison Truro|
I left this message for the volunteer that reported the problem:
John Sweetser is buried in Madison Truro Cemetery. His stone was above ground in 1945. Unfortunately I have not found it yet. I am convinced there are literally hundreds of stones buried just below the surface. Ohio Exploration did not look below the surface. Here are some I found:
The stones I find, I chart where they are and rebury them til a qualified conservator can properly conserve them. I will keep an eye out for John, do not worry about him. Thanks-Brent
|Grave Divers||Benjamin P. Schmidt|
If you follow the line from Benjamin, it goes to his son Tobias. Tobias's son Peter (Pete) T. Schmidt was my grandfather ( My dad's father).
Dad's name was Alfred P. Schmidt.
The Koehn's and Schmidt's around the Montezuma area are cousin's of mine.
|Grave Divers||Benjamin P. Schmidt|
I noticed that you have Benjamin as being buried in the Lone Tree Cemetery near Galva with Anna his wife.
Benjamin was my Great-great grandfather.
Do you have any documentation to show this or church records?
I also noticed that Eva Nachtigal (Tobias Schmidt's wife) is buried in the cemetery but there is no stone for Tobias.
Do you have any more info on the families listed above.
I am related to the Koehn's and Schmidt's in western Kansas also
|jada||Katherine Wittig Wagner|
I took the pictures of Katherine's grave several years ago. She is my Great-grandmother. I know nothing about the Wittig side of the family. Perhaps you have some information to share. Since there are only 4 graves in that little cemetery, you must be related! See also the grave of her son, Peter, that I posted.
