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, Owens, London...
My husband's family lines include: Jorgensen, Olsen, Petersen, Riber, Frederiksen, Jeppesen, Iversen, Nielsen, Waggensen, Klitten, Christensen, Christiansen, and the list goes on.

Charlotte (Patterson) Davis [Memorial #85613366]
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.

Jasper McLeod milligan
I submitted an edit to link Jasper Milligan to his parents. His sister, Angelina Milligan Stewart, is buried in the same cemetery as Jasper. Their brother, Andrew Steele Milligan, is my great great grandfather.

Sylvia Kennedy
I think I can say with some confidence that these are not the William and Sylvia Kennedys that you seek.
Sylvia's marriage certificate, unfortunately, does not name her parents. However, the following items documented above cannot be all be true if William is the same person.
Areno Babcock is still single and living with her parents in NE in the 1860 census. Sylvia was born that year in OH. William is listed as single when he married Jane Waterhouse in Ashtabula Co. in 1883. Your WIlliam is married to Areno in the 1885 NE census. William and Jane remained married until death parted them in the 1930's in OH. I was in contact years ago with a descendant of the Jefferson Kennedy family and as far as I know, none of them ever headed west. Hope this all helps.
