Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been collecting family history for the last 35 years. My husband and I have deep Kansas roots. His are in Ottawa, Lincoln, and Cloud counties; mine are in Wabaunsee, Pottawatomie, and Shawnee counties. Our people have been in this state since 1857, and I find more little items about their everyday lives as I read the old weekly newspapers on microfilm at the Kansas Historical Society's archives in Topeka.
I post family trees at Rootsweb and Ancestry, and post obits on the surname pages at Rootsweb if I don't know the cemetery where the burial is.

I'm currently working on four projects:
1. Working with others to photograph Mount Hope Cemetery, one of the large city cemeteries in Topeka, Kansas.
2. Reading my way through the Cloud County, Kansas, Glasco Sun, sharing obits as I find them. Most connect to one of my husband's family lines.
3. Reading old issues of the Alma Signal/Enterprise, Wabaunsee County
4. Reading old issues of the Cherokee Sentinel, Crawford County, adding obits to the Cherokee cemetery.

NOTE: If you would like me to look for additional information on burials in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, or Cherokee Cemetery in Crawford County, please let me know via the edit tab on the page.

Hello, I am Jerry's sister-in-law in Tulsa. I would like to add a bio to Jerry's info which would include his brother, parents, and both set of grandparents. Jerry is originally from Tulsa and that is where everyone is buried. I want to not leave him out of the family loop. In fact, if you want to transfer him to me that would be great. Linda Caughron

Thank you for this information. I began looking over the line today & I added information (a suggested edit) to the Mial Austin Fessenden memorial. He was the one who moved to Kansas from Michigan. He was born in New York.

Frank M Curry place of death
Hi Cheryl, you suggested a change to his memorial and while I haven't made the change yet I'm happy to do so. However I was wondering if you could provide documentation on the place of death or point me in the direction where I could find it. It would be nice to have something for my genealogy files. Thank you, Cathy Cunningham, daughter of Lloyd Cunningham.

Thank you so much for creating the memorial and posting all the amazing obituary information for Macrina C. Swayze-Middlesworth (Memorial# 134656194). I have been searching for her for years. All the information you supplied just helped me to solve a major part of a massive puzzle. Thank you again for being a contributor.

Warmest Regards,

Hanson Meyer
