Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Michelle Renee "Shelley" (Latey) Broyles. I am the mother of three children and Oma of three. I graduated from The University of Kansas in May with degrees in Applied Behavioral Science and Psychology. I have been researching my family for 18+ years and put as much time as I can into the hobby. My husband, Dan, jokes that my idea of a good vacation is being in a cemetery, which isn't far from the truth. Everywhere I travel I try to stop and take pictures of cemeteries in hopes that someone will be helped in finding family members. I live in Johnson Co., Kansas, so if I can be of help please contact me and let me know. Happy hunting everyone!

I get a lot of requests. Please be as patient as you can. I promise I will get to them. I am not hard-nosed as some contributors are and will be happy to transfer memorials if they are in your family lines and not mine (LATEY-FOX or BROYLES-LONG lines). Also, when communicating remember that "you get more with honey than with vinegar." Thank you everyone!

OH, one more thing, I have the sexton records for the Olathe Cemetery up to, I believe, 2006. I have yet to get them all up. I have taken all the photographs of tombstones if there is one. I am still working on getting all of those up. Let me know if you are wondering about someone and I will look them up for you.


Only leave messages if you are thanking me, or are, or think you are, related. As I go through my messages I delete them, so that I know that I have responded or read them. Please know that I see and appreciate every one of them! :)

**** Sometimes life happens, and it is happening to me right now. I am having some very serious health issues that may result in brain surgery.

Please be as patient as you can. I know some of you have been waiting months for a response. I am not ignoring you. I am starting to work through some 500+ requests now.

I see that some of you have gone through administration, which is fine, but please don't be threatening, or passive aggressive. I am a real person, with real feelings, and with a real life. I am not retired and don't have a lot of time on my hands. I love this work and love you all for the wonderful work you are doing.****

Elizabeth Huffman Gray Hoyt #25980070

It would be a privilege to maintain my 3x great grandmother, Elizabeth Huffman's memorial if you would choose to transfer it to me.
I live in Washington State but most of my maternal ancestors are from Olathe Johnson KS area going back before the Civil War. I have visited three times and love the area.
Thank you for the time and effort you put in with Find A Grave, it is much appreciated. :)

Found Grandmother's grave
I was just playing around and found a picture of my grandmother's grave site. Just curious how you came to this grave and took pictures...I think it's very cool.

Hi Shelley---Thank you so, so much for the edits. I'm sorry you are having health issues. I would be happy to accept transfers if that would help you. Otherwise, I can wait on edits. Thank you again, Peggy (in Texas)
If you would like to transfer them, I can submit requests on each one to make it easier for you. Just let me know. Contributor #48524515

Help Assistance :
Hi Shelley,
I was going to request a couple of transfers,
BUT, instead, I am offering my assistance in helping you take care of some of your modification / transfer requests ... Now, I do not know how we may accomplish this, but someone smarter than myself will have some ideas and suggestions .... Just so you know you do have an extra hand at your beckon call ....
