Bio and Links
Bio Photo I moved to North-Central Kansas in late 2008, which gave me a whole new starting place for family history research! My grandmother Elsa Opal Long Vandecar (1896-1996) was the family historian, and for the last 20 years or so I've been trying to continue her legacy.

You are welcome to copy any of my gravestone photos onto other genealogy or family history websites; no need to credit me. Helping other family historians by gathering those photos is my way of paying forward all the help I've received!

Thanks for looking. Someone has "David Wait" in the same cemetery with a tombstone pic. What I am wondering is if it should be spelled, "Wait".

RE: Harry/Harvey Wade #126703129
Thank you... After I looked at this I decided his name really was Harvey and Harry was probably a typo, so I changed it to Harvey. When I tried to look up his parents, I realized there already was a memorial for Harvey, # 17346026, so I sent my obit to the other page manager and am going to have to delete my entry. Crazy! BD

Baxter Akers
My memorial does not have any dates so I think mine is a different person. I thought I found him but there is a third Baxter Akers in WV- 84365344. I am removing the date from my memorial and leaving it all unknown. I will keep searching for him though. You might want to remove the note you made as I really think he is buried with his wife. Thanks for pointing this out!

You have a photo Marker on # 89534600, is there some way you can move this photo to # 46352421, same cemetery, same name now. I didn't know till yesterday mine was a DUP. they didn't have her name like I had mine. I got in contact with them, and had them add what was on my BIO, with full name, and linking her children to their posting, which they have now done. I didn't want to delete my posting till I had gotten in touch with you. If you can move your photo, that would be great. I would appreciate your letting me know, then I can delete my posting.
I thank you for your time and for your help.

My grandfather Laurence

My brother found this website and sent me link. Glad to see more info where my late grandfather was in Kansas.

My dad is Lawrence Dean Lefort before he became Lawrence Dean Meadows (My late grandma Val remarried to step-grandpa Meadows. I was born Meadows but still LeFort in my heart.

My dad buried in Sacramento, CA. Found this grave too but need to add better clear picture of his grave. I visited there many times.

My late Dad was only 6 months old when my grandpa Laurence drowned. He didn't remember him but my two aunts Helen and Shirley remembered him. Thanks for share this picture and to know where it is.

I haven't gone to this place yet.. Someday, I will.. hope to meet any of you LeFort Families.. I know that my late dad's side is HUGE family cuz of great-grandpa had 17 children.. not sure if it is Great-Grandpa or Great-Great-Grandpa.

Hope to stay in touch with any of you.. I have Facebook
Pam Meadows. My Aunt Helen is still alive, one of three LeFort. That's her late Dad..

I have picture of late Grandpa Laurence and Grandma Val that my aunt Shirley had and I restored to have it bigger picture.

Take care,
Pam "LeFort" Meadows (Late Grandpa's granddaughter)
