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.

Thank-you for the picture of her tombstone. She was our beloved Aunt Flo. I appreciate your posting.
Is is there anyway you could correct one detail? her birth was in 1912 , instead of 1917. Thank-you for your consideration.

RE: Clugston transfers
Howdy Cheryl..
Thanks for the transfer of the Clugstons. James Walter Clugston had 2 wifes with the same name (Brown). No relation to one another. His children information usually gets mixed up with the wrong mother.
Sorry, I live in Texas. Would love to scan the film for information.
Thanks again Cheryl

RE: Ella Barnett Loper
Will you put the date of birth and date of death on Ella Loper memorial?
Enjoyed the Sunflower Journey segment on you and your research.
I have read all of our local paper (Perry Mirror) and they are very interesting.
My family (Hotchkiss, Gillaspy, Hepworth & Barnett) are from Osage County, Burlingame.
Mrs. Loper would be my great great aunt.
The next time I am at the Archives I will come over and introduce myself.
