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.

A copy of the account of her death may be interesting, if it is not a problem.

Thank you

Final resting place for Edna L. Kavanaugh Springer Enzor
I have a puzzle . . .I have found two records for Edna L. Kavanaugh Springer Enzor: #38255948, Staley Mound Cemetery, Pleasant Hill, Cass Co., MO & #8828443, Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, Shawnee Co., Kansas. Do you have any idea if one is a memorial and one is her actual grave? Her gravesite in Kansas is beside her second husband Roscoe G. Enzor.

Dear Cheryl,

I have done some more investigation on this family but I don't know the answer to your question. I am only tangentially related.

Thank you very much for your work in FindAGrave. It is a very valuable resource.

Thank you. I am digging through my paper work and trying to get rid of some of it. Transferring these obits will help. They will be accessible to me and anyone else who wants the info. You may see more come your way before I am done :)
