Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking photographs at cemeteries for a long time - of family members - from Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Wisconsin. Ever so gradually I enter them on Find-A-Grave. I am also compiling a genealogy story of the Olsen family that moved from Denmark to southern Nuckolls County, Nebraska, and also entering information for families of the Longbranch Seventh Day Baptist Church, Nebr. and SDB Church, Nortonville, Kans.

Once at a cemetery, I photograph as many stones as I have time. Here in KS most are not related to me. If you come across one that you want to manage, let me know and it can be changed.

My family lines include: Burdick, Davis, Williams, Greene, Walker, Carpenter, White, Ownbey, Moffitt, London...
My husband's family lines include: Jorgensen, Olsen, Petersen, Riber, Frederiksen, Jeppesen, Iversen, Nielsen, Waggensen, Klitten, Christensen, Christiansen, and the list goes on.

I see you have photo requests for Robinson in Atchison county. My husband farms across the road from where the stone were found. I have also added a photo for Abel who is the father of Cornelia and Charles.

I just put in the picture of Mrs.Nelson's head stone. I have a picture of R. Peter Nelsen's side and one of the entire stone. If you have a memorial of him and add a request I will put both pictures on each memorial. Hope this is helpful. You are a very busy lady.

RE: James B Davis and Mary Furrow Hurley
I was happy I found them, James Davis was by his wife Lorena, and her mother was beside her. I did the edits to link them. Sometimes it is a challenge to get the right person, when there are more then one with the same name. Glad this helped.

RE: Jasper McLeod milligan
Thank you! I am related to the Milligans so I would manage the memorials. I don't know of any living relatives of any of them.

RE: Anna Mary Klaus Weispenning
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. As you can see by the photo I have created her memorial correctly per Find A Grave guidelines. I have added a copy of the obit I found online (not the other persons) and have sent an email asking that the other memorial which is the duplicate (created 2 years later) be deleted.

I'm no relation to Charlotte (Patterson) Davis, Jean. It was just a good obituary that I thought someone might appreciate. And as a proud native Kansan, I'm a sucker for any obituary referencing a Kansas pioneer!

Thanks for your good work!

John Wesley Corlett
My great-grandmother, Willomine Babcock Corlett, belonged to a long line of SDB families back to the Colonial days. You will be busy for the rest of your life if you are photographing the SDB ancestors :-) I'm not sure what you are seeing on my Find A Grave memorial for Willomine Corlett (unless someone else accidentally linked her father-in-law to her as a spouse.
I wish I could attach a jpg to this message, but it doesn't seem possible. I have a copy of the original memorial that I created for both my great grandmother (Willomine" and of her former husband and my 2nd great grandfather, John Wesley Corlett, Jr. They were divorced and he had remarried. Willomine is buried with my family at Memorial Park Cemetery in Enid OK. John is buried with his second wife, Cora, at Lawnview Cemetery in Cordell, OK.
Another contributor (Patti Filley) created the memorial to John Wesley Corlett, Sr (1826-1861) and perhaps she linked his memorial accidentally to Willomine's memorial, I did not do that. John (SR) is buried in Humboldt, Richardson County, Neb.
I just checked the Find a Grave site and someone must have removed the error of having her married to both her own husband and his father. So I think everything is the way it should be. Please check it again to see if it is showing up correctly.
