I am an amateur "genie" researching many family lines in both my husband's and my own family.

During the summer of 2010, we re-traced the path of the wagon trains that brought our families out to Kansas, which took us through MO-IL-OH-PA. During our trip we not only visited the Historical Societies, but also many cemeteries where we cleaned or uncovered headstones, took photos, and documented the information for not only our records, but for future generations.

HEADSTONE PHOTOS: My husband and I have spent considerable time, and in some instances driving great distances, battling weeds, heat, rain, bugs and critters to take these photos. Saying that...please feel free to use any photo for your family records. Please be respectful and do not re-post to any other memorials on FAG or any other public grave website. Should you find any questionable information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This summer 2014 we are working on Lincoln Cemetery in Lebo, Kansas and Arvonia Cemetery in Arvonia, Kansas.

My husband's family lines are: Clewell, Cryder, Clester, Brink, Donley, Dixon, Derrick, Downs, Reid, Louthan

My family lines: Hitchcock, Higgins, Homire, Heskett, Van Buskirk, Meek, Robinson

Happy hunting!

RE: Thompson headstone
I have thousands of local gravestone photos in my files...I hadn't looked at photo requests for some time, so glad to do this on a cold wintery night. Regards, Nancy

Minnie Rowe Riker 158164137
Hello, I was wondering where you found that Minnie Riker's middle name was Sarah? I was unable to find a middle name for her.

I have updated Mattie's memorial page as you suggested. I am not related to this family and didn't know the information was incorrect. Probably the erroneous information about her name was submitted by someone through the current edit system, and I do not have a record who contributed it. I put your note on Mattie's page to help clarify that Simeon was married twice. Perhaps it will help others researching this family.

I accepted your edits saying she died in Gap, Lancaster County. Unless you have other sources, the obit says she died in Christianna, Lancaster County. Those two places are not the same. If you want to change it to Christianna, just send another edit.

Oops, above explains why the two Poloncic's are in different plots. Anthony must have been her second husband.

The cemetery record has this entry in their books. The burial plots are different for each of them.
