Bio and Links
Genealogy has been a topic of interest since college when a Kansas History course required either a term paper or a family history; the family history topic intrigued me more than any other random topic available.

Since that time, I have continued to search out my extended family as well as work closely with the Kinsley Public Library to document those early settlers of Kinsley and Edwards County, Kansas who moved west to grow up with the country.

Whenever possible, I have found obituaries to 'flesh-out' my family members as well as those early settlers.

This avocation is truly an enjoyable journey and I have been fortunate to meet some wonderful individuals along the way.

Callie (Russell) Turner
Thank you very much for your time and effort to try to locate Callie (Russell) Turner's marker. It's sad to learn that a family member didn't have a headstone at the time of their passing. Thank you for transferring her memorial to us. Your help is greatly appreciated!

Swede,
Going through my emails I realized that I had not thanked you for the picture of Hubert Burke's headstone. I apologize for the tardiness, but the gratitude is very much current!
Thank you sincerely,
Diana Bryson-Brooks

Shirley Williams
Hello. You set up a memorial for Shirley Williams who is buried at Elmwood Cemetery in Kansas City, MO. She died July 1938. However, no marker exists. Can you tell me where you got the info to set up the memorial? By chance did you see an obit for her? I am trying to locate her obituary. Thanks, Ellen

Alicia S. (Blood ) Brown
Further data Alicia's middle initial "S" was for Sarah.

Also, after Alicia, died, Robert married 20 August 1878 in Leavenworth, Kansas Caroline M. :Carrie" Blood born about 1836 in Lyme, Grafton, New Hampshire. Caroline was Alicia's older sister. I don't know what happened to Caroline after Robert's death.

Am wondering is the any kind of obit on Robert ?
