Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was fortunate enough to have inherited the genealogical findings that my mother had put together over a thirty year period. A few years after her death I opened the box to sort through the pictures and became immediately hooked. With the many different resources available to me that she didn't have, I have been able to knock down some of her brick walls and I do enjoy the challenge of chipping away at those that remain. Additions to her research have included the families of my in-laws, my daughter-in-law and son-in-law plus the families of my brother-in-law.
I spend a great deal of time volunteering in the genealogical field as web master of the web sites for 11 genealogical societies. I am Past President of Midwest Historical & Genealogical Society, Wichita, KS and served on their board in other capacities and have done a great deal of indexing of records for them.
I retired, after working many years as an office administrator, in 2007 so now have more time than ever to spend on this hobby.

RE: Barnard photo
You're quite welcome. That cemetery is real close by.

RE: Jemison photos
Are Elizabeth and John buried in that location as well? I have not made it through the entire cemetery yet, and was wondering if they might be buried elsewhere.

We have a cemetery committee for Prospect, and try to mark a few unmarked graves each year. We also try to replace older illegible graves. We have quite a few to do, but I will keep their names on my list if I end up not finding any markers for them.

RE: Thistlethwaite Photos
Helen,
I noticed while I was there that there were other Thistlethwaites and either added their photos if memorials were there and if not created memorials. If there are any that I created directly connected to you, please advise and I will be more than happy to transfer over to you.
And thanks happy to assist.
Kathy

RE: Stabler Tombstone pictures
I found these in old papers I had gotten from Gale Stabler who lived in Adams County. He had taken these pictures at the local cemetery. He didn't have a computer. It was like Christmas when I found these. We travel no more. Take care. Jeanette

I went back to the cemetery and took a photo of his military plaque.

RE: Benedict Stone
I took about 60 photos yesterday and was lazy when I took this one. I did not get out of the vehicle. When I got home (I live in Portland so it is not a big deal to get to the cemetery.) I realized there is a military plaque for Ralph on the back of the stone. The next time I go I will take a photo of that for you.
