Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family research since the late 1970's. I have been associated with the Jefferson County (KS) Genealogical Society, being the organizing President and since served in that capacity two more times. I live in Winchester, Kansas. My wife, Marie and I have been married 62 years. We have four living children, 11 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. My family research interests are many, but especially Riley, Nettleton, Curry and Fulton. We have many ancestors buried in Atchison and Jefferson Counties, Kansas. In addition, I have served the United Methodist Church as organist for the past 50 years and have served the Winchester and Jefferson County North Schools as statistician for over 60 years. I was the Director of the Winchester Public Library at the time the present building was constructed.

Please contact me if you find a direct relative's memorial I manage, and would like to have the memorial transferred. Please include your Find a Grave ID # with any requests. If you find any errors or wish to have me add additional information to a memorial, please let me know.

The two Geneva Clares
Good spot!

I think she is buried with her second husband, only because that memorial is on a full grave cover. I doubt that would have been placed on a cenotaph.

I left both memorials -- they are both there, obviously, and added a note to each. In a day or so I will ask the editors to designate the Brown memorial as a cenotaph.

So look at the two memorials and see if you think my approach is reasonable. I doubt we will ever know if I am right. That's why those notes are so long.

We can always change it, so don't feel as if I am putting you under a deadline.

Thanks for pointing that out,

Topeka Tom

I have added Rev. Foster's obit to his page. Next week when I am back at the library, I'll add the cemetery information to his page and also to Lillie's. I also added the note you sent from the Lawrence paper.

Hi Raymond,

Edward P. is also sinking. Suggestions, outside of calling the cemetery office? Or is that the best thing to do?
Thanks for your time.

Burness Benton Burton

I notice you have Burness's memorial at Pleasant View Cemetery.

The picture shows it sinking. Who would I call to see how it might be saved from disappearance; or what would you recommend.

He's my 1st cousin 2x removed and I am just learning about him.

Thanks so much.

RE: Gaghagan Burial
The problem with saying they are buried in Rushville is that there were several cemeteries in Rushville at the time. It could have been Hudspeth, Dickson or Armstrong.

You have gravestone photos on the memorials for this couple.- Find A Grave Memorial# 86130417 and 430. There are no death dates on the stones. We are planning a Hay family reunion (Ward and Irvine as well) for May 2015 and would like to make contact with family of this couple. Would you have any further information? Feel free to pass my email to them if you have.
