|Bio and Links|
I am retired from Kansas Farm Bureau and live in Manhattan, KS. I grew up in Blue Rapids, KS., which is about 45 miles north of Manhattan. I belong to the Blue Rapids Historical Society as well as the Marshall County Historical Society. My Marshall County roots go back to 1858 when my Great Great Grandparents settled on the Blue River. I have recently completed research on the Civil War Vets buried at Fairmont Cemetery in Blue Rapids and Prospect Hill Cemetery just north of Blue Rapids. I will be happy to help anyone out on researching graves associated with these cemeteries.|

I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many of our 'old soldiers" that had roots/ties to Vermont.I see that you have contributed several monument/markers to the Find a Grave memorials of a few of these patriots in Marshall County. There may be others that I haven't discovered yet. May I use these photo's to post on the Vermont C.W. site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)
You will certainly receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Darrell... Thanks. Very interesting story about Joshua.
|Kathy Cox||RE: Mary Jo Logue Johns|
Hi Darrell! Thanks for replying to me. I dabbled with family ancestry over 30 years ago but then joined active duty Air Force and was unable to continue it. My father gave me my Grandpa's WWII Army jacket and we already had my husband's mother's marine uniform from WWII. I wanted to display them with honor so checked into a shadow box for them. I started to research the medals, patches, insignias that they would have had and a little history on their duties. This led me back into ancestry again and it has been a real lesson in family history. I feel very humbled and honored. I would love to keep in touch and share stories; however, I am very new to this and have much to learn. William Henry Johns would be the husband of my 2nd Great Aunt.
I live in Brookfield, Ohio. Retired from the Air Force in 2013 and work civil service now. So, sorry to say I do not live near the cemetery. I was trying to find information on the cemetery being vandalized and came across some information that might answer your questions about Joshua Johns. Very interesting stories are found in our searches... but sad that this guy's life ended so early. Scroll to Joshua P. Johns and you will see that there is a marker in place for him at Basswood but he is actually buried at Antietam National Cemetery Grave #3327, Maryland. I guess... if you think of the times... and this... I guess I am surprised... when I searched for information it says this was the bloodiest battle in American History. I guess I thought Gettysburg would have been.
Hope this gives you some information. My Great Grandmother was Julia R Logue; sister to Cynthia and Mary Logue who were married to William Henry. Mary died at the age of 21. William later married her sister.

I just submitted an inscription correction for Clarence that indicates he was a twin. Knowing this helped me resolve a relationship question of the two boys born the same day.
His twin brother is Cecil Harlan Hill Memorial# 106376252
I appreciate you updating these changes
Now, just curious as to if and how you are related to them.
Thanks for the work you do on FindaGrave

Hello Mr. Brooks,
No the farm that I am referring to is in Cedar Hill, Mo.
Mr. Charles and Evanda Durgin sold it to my
father-in-law in 1957 and I am researching the history of the acreage.
If you have any information to share about Mr. Durgin or the farm I would love to hear it.
Incidentally, you may know that Mr. Durgin bought the acreage from Tom Scruby.
I did contact Mrs. Ellen Durgin Chrisenhall, a daughter and she was helpful and I greatly appeciated that.
Thanks for your response and here is wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
|Floyd Strader||Clarence Vail|
I noticed that you are listed as the owner/manager of Clarence Vail's memorial.
I am wondering how/if you are related to him in some/any way.
His father George W. B. Vail was a ggfather of mine. One of his daughters md John A. Vaught - whose dau md. Harold R. Strader.
You can see some more info on my info page under either the Manes/Manis or Strader family lists.

My father-in-law bought his farm from Mr. Charles and Evadna Durgin in 1957. I am researching the history of the farm and the area and wondering if you would consider helping me. Or, if you know anyone else who could help that would be great.
Thanks for your consideration.
|Rene (Wilcox) Smith||RE: Jacob White|
Yes, I could also manage Jake's page. Thank you
|Rene (Wilcox) Smith||RE: Travis Blue Wilcox|
I emailed (personal email) you regarding a couple others I could manage, and sent you Jacob White Beckman's obit info. Let me know if you got that or not. Thanks!
|Rene (Wilcox) Smith||RE: Travis Blue Wilcox|
Hi Darrell, I thought I had already replied to this, but see that I did not! Sorry! Yes, I would be more than happy to manage Travis's memorial at Fairmont Cemetery. I will try to get both memorials updated asap. Thanks! - Rene
