Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Thompson, Walker, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Murdock, Streeter, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

RE: New E-mail
Hi Richard,

We had 1.2 inches over 2 days. We have had enough for a few days. It was over 6 inches before that. I think I wrote you about that rain.
Glad you have a new e-mail. Will write you at that address soon.

We have had just over 6 inches of rain and pea size hail in the last week. Heavy rain and golf ball hail is predicted for tomorrow and tomorrow night. My garden is about to float away. I went out and filled in some of the wash-outs with mud this afternoon. Ha ha! Hope you are getting your share out there.
Tell Lolita hello.

Hi Richard!
Good to hear from you! All along the turnpike I-135 it has stormed all evening. From Wellington to Wichita to Emporia they have really gotten it tonight. Golf ball hail and heavy rain. We sure needed the rain. It has finally started raining here. Pea size hail is all we have had. I would say it's been raining here less than an hour. The weather man just said it has been raining over there in Wichita for about 7 hours.
I'm sorry about your move. Wish I could be there to help get it done. Maybe some day I can travel. My dog is finally going into remission from his autoimmune disease. His darn pills have been over $500. a month. He's not worth that. ha ha.
Please keep me posted!

My children are her 2x great granddaughters. You seem to have a lot of info on the Brown family. I know most of the stuff you have up, but have been unable to prove it. How common the names are is giving me problems. Thank you Priscilla Brown

Shedrick w & Nancy Ann Watson Wesley
Shedrick W & Nancy Ann Watson Wesley are my 3rd gr. grand parents. In my research it appears that they are buried in New Hope/ Lizard Lope cemetery, however they are not listed here. I see Shedrick's father Robert Robin is there and that leads me to believe Shedrick & Nancy are as well. I was going to send for a photo request, but wanted to check with you first since you now manage the grave for Robert Robin. I am hoping to get them added & linked on down the line if possible.

Mistake on memorial
No, it is not your mistake, but mine. On the memorial for Nicholas J. Howe, I accidently tapped the return button twice and it left two identical flowers and messages. Sorry. I can't correct it. I also want to thank you for your work on the Stafford Cemetery. I have quite a few family members there.
