|Bio and Links|
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.
PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE A REQUEST FOR A TRANSFER OR MEMORIAL CORRECTION DO IT FROM THE MEMORIAL **DON'T PLACE IT IN MY MESSAGES**
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.****

I grew up in Shawnee. After my father died, my mother married Johnnie Van Schoelandt. He was a wonderful man who we love and miss. I am LDS. I see that you have submitted the names of many of our Belgian ancestors for temple ordinances. Congratulations! I would LOVE to connect with you and help each other along the way...

Hi, you seem to be the person who added this grave to the site. I am trying to determine if this Samuel A. Barnett was born in Leeds, England, United Kingdom. Would you have any information on that? Thank you,
Please link our daughter-in-law's mother, Violet L Matthews, Find A Grave #119800763 with her parents, Luther Cary, Find A Grave #21853727 and Mamie Cary, Find A Grave #21853717 (both are buried in the Egypt Cemetery, Ada, Pontotoc County, OK).
Thank you and you are truly a blessing to Findagrave. Keep up the good work. Respectfully,
Thanks for updating Mrs. Duncan's Memorial.

Hello. Thomas Jefferson GILLIHAN (#24097287) is my 2xs great-grandfather on my mothers side, so I was hoping you wouldn't mind transferring him. I do a lot of GILLIHAN research. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

Shelley, Your Jerry Hollinger, file # 25676407 is the same as my file # 18984652. Both are listed at Olathe Memorial Cemetery. You might consider deleting your newer entry.

I just wanted to thank you for all you do for Find A Grave. I just found the snip it of info leading me to search for Benjamin Crane in Olathe, Kansas. Benjamin is my 3rd great grandfather. (No I am not seeking management). I found a whole family!!
I may make some suggested edits for relationships as I figure out this piece of my family. I will start by adding Benjamin and Kosander to their son Oscar, my 2nd great grandfather. (I do manage his memorial).
Again thank you. This is such a great site, because of people like you who give of your time to help others discover their families.
Have a Great Day!
