With the new system there are no notices sent to the contributors that there are edits waiting to take place and we usually have to randomly stumble across them, or check daily.
I am an amateur "genie" researching many family lines in both my husband's and my own family.

During the summer of 2010, we re-traced the path of the wagon trains that brought our families out to Kansas, which took us through MO-IL-OH-PA. During our trip we not only visited the Historical Societies, but also many cemeteries where we cleaned or uncovered headstones, took photos, and documented the information for not only our records, but for future generations.

HEADSTONE PHOTOS: My husband and I have spent considerable time, and in some instances driving great distances, battling weeds, heat, rain, bugs and critters to take these photos. Saying that...please feel free to use any photo for your family records. Please be respectful and do not re-post to any other memorials on FAG or any other public grave website. Should you find any questionable information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This summer 2014 we are working on Lincoln Cemetery in Lebo, Kansas and Arvonia Cemetery in Arvonia, Kansas.

My husband's family lines are: Clewell, Cryder, Clester, Brink, Donley, Dixon, Derrick, Downs, Reid, Louthan

My family lines: Hitchcock, Higgins, Homire, Heskett, Van Buskirk, Meek, Robinson

Happy hunting!

John Comstock
Are you sure he's buried in Lakeview Cemetery ?
The on line record only lists 1 John B Comstock and I have added his photo. Please check with the cemetery office to confirm. They don't like Find A Grave so I don't like to ask them too much.

John David Bruner (Memorial# 10189604)
is there anything about John Bruner which you could share with me? I am trying to confirm if this is the same John Bruner, who is the son of George W. and Louisa W. (Dillon) Bruner.

Thanks for your time,

Hi Nancy,

Thanks so much. I have had no response from my post that you mentioned and have no idea where the memorial came from. I am out of the country for a time so please lets catch up late in July. I would really like to learn and share what I know. Kind Regards, Ron Overley

Gladly deleted & transferred photo's to original. Sorry about the duplication. I try to double check but this one slipped past me. :)

Thank you for your attention to detail and caring as regards the Hodges line.

As requested I checked the updates. Those were fine. I went in to research the line a bit further, and found some more information for you, as well.

By the way I noticed your maiden name is Hitchcock. I am related to the Hitchcocks of Farmington, Maine. (Richard Hitchcock was originally from Damariscotta, I think.)

Picture for Mary Ann Jones Ellis at Arvonia
Thank you so much for the wonderful picture you took of this headstone. I don't know how you did it, but it is much clearer and more legible than it is in person!
