Bio Photo I don't transfer to memorial collectors!! If that is you, don't expect a response!!!!!

MAKE ALL SUGGESTIONS AND REQUESTS USING THE EDIT BUTTON !!!

I found a statement about links that perfectly expresses my own beliefs. I'm posting it with permission.--------------------------
Let's help the next family member or researcher that visits a memorial by adding all the family links that we know. When family members are not linked, it makes the next person do the research all over again. Also, if we have the information, let's use it before it is forgotten.I also believe that family links make this site easier to use. The easier it is to use, the more it will be used and the better it will get.

My number of memorials managed is increasing because I apparently am the succession plan for a few contributors, at least partially. I don't mind, it's easy to maintain memorials.

Marjorie Stapleton - Fairlawn - Hutchinson
Hi Tom -

I received your edit request changing the place of death for Marjorie Stapleton from Hutchinson to just Reno County. Do you have documentation to support this change? I found the 1949 article about her car accident in the Hutchinson newspaper which said the accident was in Hutchinson. Unfortunately, I didn't save the article. Let me know if you have something more definitive.

Thanks -

Diane

My apologies for beginning to inundate you with edit requests Tom. I've decided to photograph all the markers not yet taken, so I have lots of new information for you! Thank you for creating so many memorial pages for searching ancestors!

I can find no duplicate for Mary in Willow Glen Cemetery and I didn't create one. Please send me the memorial # so I can try to resolve this. Thanks.

Nancy Croan Grayson
Hey, Tom!

I've been researching "George W. Grayson" (#19948002). He had 3 Wives.
Wife 1= Sarah W. Ellington = m: 1825 KY & divorced her in early 1861 in MO = my distant relation whom l'm gonna make a memorial page for tonight.
Wife 2 = Nancy Croan = m: late 1861 KS; she died 2 yrs. later.
That's your memorial. I sent an edit but wanted you to know the why's & specifics.
Wife 3 = Mary Rowe = m: 1864 KS.

I also read a letter that Nancy's great-granddaughter wrote where she said her G-Grandma Nancy was part Indian. That rumor had been circulated in my family for years without any clarification til I read that. Husband George liked pioneer, rugged, not too civilized areas according to one of his great-grandsons who posted his picture...looks like a Wild Bill Cody type!

Take care!
