I can't tell you how priceless your photo is of the tombstone of "Selma H Hobbs" in Kansas.
I have been researching our family tree for a few years mostly via ancestry.com Sometimes, there is this mysterious "hole." And tonight, upon discovering your photo, I have been able to fill this surprising hole. Words cannot express my gratitude for your selfless endeavor!
My son's great-grandmother is Leona Ruth (nee Hobbs) Wattson, the youngest of 9. Her sibling, Selma H Hobbs, is one of three siblings who died very very young per your photo of the tombstone.
Leona's first son is Allan Seright Wattson. His first born is Kristoph Seright Wattson. And our son is Aidan Seright Wattson.
Kristoph, my husband, and I were fortunate to visit Leona in her golden years. She told us fantastic stories about her youth in Kansas and Oklahoma, but she never mentioned facts about our family lineage. We never knew her father was named Charles Seright. In turn, she would never know that her great-grandson would be named Aidan Seright.
Again, thank you immensely Mae, for helping me with this part of our family's lineage puzzle.

I have a question, you stated you could not find a cemstone for Ruby, but her obit states she is in this cem. Did you check with the office for the exact location of her grave, is she really buried there, most times the office has info about a stone or no stone-did you check that?
Asking before I call the cemetery, because if you already did all this, I won't bother them, but I can if you did not and want me to call them.
Thanks for looking!
In Morris County, Kansas cemetery, you have Vera Roberts as being the child of a William Roberts, but Edgar R. Roberts and his wife Gertrude also had a daughter named Vera, who was born in 1914 in Morris Co, KS and died in 1921 in Morris Co, KS. Do you live in Morris County and can you verify which parents she belongs to, so I can have the correct info for my records. I think this Vera really belongs to Edgar and Gertrude, but I could be wrong. Thank You.

If you know how he passed or have any photos or know how I can go about hearing his story that would be great!! Thank you!
|Gloria Selby||Jacob and Rebecca Gillespie|
Mae: Thank you so much for this valuable work. It is such a help to those of us trying to find our links. I have pictures of all of the Gillespie tombstones (in Greenwood Cemetery, Council Grove) except for Rebecca---don't know how I missed her. So I will upload those when I have a little time.
Once again, thank you so much for making this effort which means so much to us.
|Susan Jane||RE: Gatewood Tombstones|
Thank you for your efforts. Well I guess that if the genealogical research were too easy it wouldn't be as much fun. Thanks again for the prompt reply.
|Robert Edens||Resent Photo|
May, Thank you so much for the picture of Barbara S Neal.
Do you have a GPS unit to give the Digital Latitude/Longitude location. I would love to have the location of Walter and Mary M Edens #69936498.
If you have a iPhone there is a free app that is wonderful. It is "My GPS Location" it is very accurate, I use it all the time.
Thanks again, Robert Edens

I should have asked this in the picture request . Are any relatives buried near Subael ?
|Lisa M. Watkins-Duhn||RE: Watkins/Patterson|
Good Evening Mae, You know I hope you remember me. Also I truely hope I answered this note last year. Can't believe it's almost that long. Eva Mae Patterson was James and Martha Watkins first child. She married J. Patterson. They had three children, Halley (buried right there in that plot), Erma Floy (don't know what happened to her)and Loy Alva Patterson. He is in the book about Council Grove and the Santa Fe Trail. One of the first young men to die in WW1 from there. There's a picture of him. Also in that book it mentions James Watkins (Uncle Jimmy). His story is at the bottom of page 41. This man was even sheriff in the town and was part owner of "Gilkey House" (Commercial House). If you ever come accross a picture of him and Martha, I would well be greatful. I also know that my great grandfather and his brother had a dental practice there in town. So much history in that town. I truely wish I could of brought my dad there. We would of walked the streets where his family was over a 100 yrs before and after. His dad was also born there. Ok, it's late, Thank you again, Lisa Watkins-Duhn
|DSH||RE: Scheele at Trinity Lutheran Washington Co. KS|
I apologize for the many notes I sent you. I really appreciate the work you have done and will be patient as you make the requested updates at whatever pace you find appropriate. Thanks also for checking your records regarding the possible multiple Elise Scheeles. Before I add anything, I will confirm and photograph any existing markers.
P.S. This snow we're having keeps us out of the cemeteries, doesn't it!
