Bio Photo
I do have Memorials that I'm willing to transfer.

Many obits I use are from my sister, Peggy Jenkins Kreiger, and our mother, Ruby Bash Jenkins' obituary collection. The obituaries are used with their permission.

I also use photos my sister, Peggy has taken at cemeteries for me, they are also used with her permission. I also have photos from John Schehrer, Big John (#46634520) & Betty Saltenberger (#47066478), that I may use with their permission. Photos I have used from other Find A Grave members are used with their permission.

Please note:

The Profile Comments are not the place for questions about any of the MEMORIALS that I MANAGE.


For ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, LINKS or TRANSFERS for any Memorial, PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON and click on Suggest A Correction or provide additional information."


If you have genealogical questions I don't have a problem with being asked to help here or via email. I prefer an email. it's more private.

Just try to give me enough information to understand what you want to know, and possibly be able to research for an answer.

Please place Find A Grave in the Subject, so I can tell it's not spam and include the link to the other Memorial/Profile to be discussed.

I've helped a lot of people since I started genealogy in the early 1980's. I'm now 74

RE: Sarah Thornbrugh Bailey
you wrote:
Is Thornbrugh, Hortense 28015863 in Oak Hill Cemetery the wife of James, John, or yet another Thornbrugh? At the current time she has been linked to James. Was he married to more than mother of his children Nancy Ann Feathercycle Thornbrugh?

Yes, you have them linked correctly. Hortense was James Galway Thornbrugh's 2nd & final wife. John Thornbrugh buried at Oak Hill is the third child of James & first wife Nancy.

I have sent SACs with some more info on James, Hortense and John.

Fry graves in Oak Hill Cemetery, Galena, KS
Hi Orlena,

My grandparents, Dora & Marion Francis Fry, and my uncle, Leslie Fry, are buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery. I am writing to request that you transfer management of those to me if you are willing to do so.

Thank you very much,
Jean Cloke

I want to thank you for adding Kent's memorial to findagrave. We were first cousins and just found out about his passing. I also want to thank you for the obituary and family links. You have given him dignity in his passing.

Alvena Friend Barnett
Hello Orlena,
Thanks for steering me in the right direction to find more information about Alvena. You were absolutely right; her maiden name was Friend. I have given you credit on her memorial.

I was shocked & surprised to learn that she & her husband had been shot.

In appreciation,

I will be happy to transfer Goldie to you. Her granddaughter was my best friend growing up. We lived 2 doors away for 10 years. She stood up for me at my wedding and I for hers. Don't remember Goldie, but more Joe. Nice old guy.

The daughter of Patsy Sizemore called me today, 10 Dec, to inform me that her mother is not buried in the Searles Valley Cemetery.
Cholla, the daughter, informed that in fact her mother's ashes are in her, Cholla's, closet. Cholla is not even sure her mother will be buried in Searles Valley Cemetery.
Please delete this memorial.

Hi Orlena,

I did some more research and found that Edward Parker's middle name is King. That is Alta Fay Duree's husband. The obit was a little bit messed up. I know that can happen.

Thank you for your concern.
