Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been collecting family history for the last 35 years. My husband and I have deep Kansas roots. His are in Ottawa, Lincoln, and Cloud counties; mine are in Wabaunsee, Pottawatomie, and Shawnee counties. Our people have been in this state since 1857, and I find more little items about their everyday lives as I read the old weekly newspapers on microfilm at the Kansas Historical Society's archives in Topeka.
I post family trees at Rootsweb and Ancestry, and post obits on the surname pages at Rootsweb if I don't know the cemetery where the burial is.

I'm currently working on four projects:
1. Working with others to photograph Mount Hope Cemetery, one of the large city cemeteries in Topeka, Kansas.
2. Reading my way through the Cloud County, Kansas, Glasco Sun, sharing obits as I find them. Most connect to one of my husband's family lines.
3. Reading old issues of the Alma Signal/Enterprise, Wabaunsee County
4. Reading old issues of the Cherokee Sentinel, Crawford County, adding obits to the Cherokee cemetery.

NOTE: If you would like me to look for additional information on burials in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, or Cherokee Cemetery in Crawford County, please let me know via the edit tab on the page.

Love Cousins
I'm hoping some day to find the grave of my gg grandmother, Mary Going. I'm thinking she was buried somewhere in Cloud County, Kansas. The Love family returned to Indiana about the turn of the century, and she did not come with them. Her son in-law, Harvey Love, (my g grandfather) was first cousin to Permelia (Love) Winters whom you created a memorial for in the Glasco Cemeter # 60194500.

What a wonderful surprise it was this morning to find that you had added the obit from the Cherokee Sentinel to the page of David Willis. I had never seen that before and it meant a lot to me.(He's my 3x great grandfather.) Thank you!

RE: Bertha Turner, 106438794
I have updated my records to match your input. Various (unsourced) suggestions for where her siblings were born. Michigan, Ohio and PA.

My best swag is that her parents (John Hahn & Mary Ellenberger) were married in PA, had most of their children in Michigan.

But some time after 1872 and the birth of their last child (Paul) they moved to PA. When Mary died in 1883 her husband John (Bertha's father) returned to MI for the last few years of his life.

I will keep Bertha's parents on my research list until facts emerge to support their specific locations at specific dates.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
