Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been collecting family history for the last 35 years. My husband and I have deep Kansas roots. His are in Ottawa, Lincoln, and Cloud counties; mine are in Wabaunsee, Pottawatomie, Shawnee, and Crawford counties. Our people have been in this state since 1857, and I find more little items about their everyday lives as I read the old weekly newspapers on microfilm at the Kansas Historical Society's archives in Topeka.
I post family trees at Rootsweb and Ancestry, and post obits on the surname pages at Rootsweb if I don't know the cemetery where the burial is.

I'm currently working on four projects:
1. Working with others to photograph Mount Hope Cemetery, one of the large city cemeteries in Topeka, Kansas.
2. Reading my way through the Cloud County, Kansas, Glasco Sun, sharing obits as I find them. Most connect to one of my husband's family lines.
3. Verifying burials in Lynn Creek Cemetery, near Berryton.
4. Reading old issues of the Cherokee Sentinel, Crawford County, adding obits to the Cherokee cemetery.

NOTE: If you would like me to look for additional information on burials in Mount Hope or Auburn cemeteries in Topeka, Lynn Creek Cemetery in Berryton, or Cherokee Cemetery in Crawford County, KS, please let me know via the edit tab on the page.

The number for the father is the right one.
But I left out a number for the Mother. The right
#100771121 is for Nellie E. "Linton" Hubbart

Sorry for the confusion.

RE: William R. Nungester

Thank you! I've added the obituary I found online, as well as created (incomplete) records for his parents. Hopefully Bill's daughter will be able to fill in some of the missing information for me!

RE: Charles Allen Mills
I found Charles Mills' obituary interesting and very informative about how postal routes were developed. I'm glad I was able to contribute to your efforts to document histories for the Mount Hope Cemetery.

RE: Thomas C. & Rachel Jane Kelley
No I don't know when she died either. I suspect that the are all in the same place as they had lived there for a long time. Both of the daughters were also near them. I hope that you can find a notice in the newspaper.
