Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history exploration for me begins with Ottawa Co, Kansas, but of course led across the country. An inheritor of several generations of newspaper clippings, I started transcribing obits from microfilm beginning at the 1879 start of the paper and realized the value of reading them all in understanding my family's history in the region. A sort of 'community-based genealogy' habit grew and expanded, as did an interest in cemetery preservation and recording.

Living now in a rural Kentucky county, our local history goal is to locate the old family cemeteries up in the hills, photograph and record. Most are hidden and overgrown; some remarkably well looked after by landowners whether related or not. And several are out there yet to be found...

Am happy to transfer your relatives and happy to help in the hunt for them.

Betty Lou Wright
Thank you very much for the photo of Betty Lou, Infant Daughter of JF Wright in Delphos Cemetery. James F Wright was my beloved grandmother's favorite brother who also died in 1918. He was a Marine at Paris Island and died in the flu pandemic. I had no idea he had a daughter. Thank you so very much.

Gilbert and Margery Struebing Memorials

Thank you so much for taking the photos for their memorials. I think I would prefer that you would delete your second photo, i.e. cemetery photo, as one is led to believe that their headstone is in the picture but I don't see it. It is a very nice picture though.
