Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Michelle Renee "Shelley" (Latey) Broyles. I am the mother of three children and Oma of three. I graduated from The University of Kansas in May with degrees in Applied Behavioral Science and Psychology. I have been researching my family for 18+ years and put as much time as I can into the hobby. My husband, Dan, jokes that my idea of a good vacation is being in a cemetery, which isn't far from the truth. Everywhere I travel I try to stop and take pictures of cemeteries in hopes that someone will be helped in finding family members. I live in Johnson Co., Kansas, so if I can be of help please contact me and let me know. Happy hunting everyone!
________________________________

I get a lot of requests. Please be as patient as you can. I promise I will get to them. I am not hard-nosed as some contributors are and will be happy to transfer memorials if they are in your family lines and not mine (LATEY-FOX or BROYLES-LONG lines). Also, when communicating remember that "you get more with honey than with vinegar." Thank you everyone!

OH, one more thing, I have the sexton records for the Olathe Cemetery up to, I believe, 2006. I have yet to get them all up. I have taken all the photographs of tombstones if there is one. I am still working on getting all of those up. Let me know if you are wondering about someone and I will look them up for you.

PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE A REQUEST FOR A TRANSFER OR MEMORIAL CORRECTION DO IT FROM THE MEMORIAL **DON'T PLACE IT IN MY MESSAGES**

Only leave messages if you are thanking me, or are, or think you are, related. As I go through my messages I delete them, so that I know that I have responded or read them. Please know that I see and appreciate every one of them! :)
--------------------------------------------

**** Sometimes life happens, and it is happening to me right now. I am having some very serious health issues that may result in brain surgery.

Please be as patient as you can. I know some of you have been waiting months for a response. I am not ignoring you. I am starting to work through some 500+ requests now.

I see that some of you have gone through administration, which is fine, but please don't be threatening, or passive aggressive. I am a real person, with real feelings, and with a real life. I am not retired and don't have a lot of time on my hands. I love this work and love you all for the wonderful work you are doing.****

Erle R. Fentem
Thank you for you reply. This is the same man. We took the spelling known by our family. So the name on the stone is correct. The Dorthy R. Fentem Memorial # 21803115 is his wife. Again, Thanks

Find a grave photo
Hello Shelley,
I would like permission to download the photo you took of Laura (Couch) Barton and J.E. Barton's grave marker at Rosedale Cemetery for my personal file, full credit to you of course. I would also like permission for any other photo of my family that you also took that I might find.
I will use these photos in my personal genealogy database and to share with family members.
Thank you for all that you do,

Urgent on Huggins Line in Kansas
First I am so sorry you may be facing such a serious surgery. I pray all goes well with you. I am a find a grave member, but not computer oriented. My question is are you related to this family? I have been researching them since 1970 without the help of the computer. If I could figure out how to add pictures I think I might be of help to some people. I would much like to have a copy of Amanda Hundley and Benjamin Franklin Huggins to share at our upcoming reunion. I have looked for one for years, if members have one they don't realize who it is I guess. How did you come about that one? Upcoming Reunion in early fall.

Also, you mentioned that you have the “sexton records for the Olathe Cemetery up to, I believe, 2006.” Do they go back to 1883? I’d love for you to look up my Mary Hanrahan.
Thanks again, Christie

Thank You for Boyd Henley Image 25194113
Shelly,
Thanks for the tombstone image of Boyd Henley #25194113. He was my great uncle. I have many Henley's in the Olathe, KS area.

May I have your permission to use your Henley images on Facebook or in my other publications? I may write a book in the future.

I read your bio. I hope you are doing well.

I have the same pictures
Shelley,
I have the same pictures. Thank you for your service. I live in California, and haven't been back in Okla. since 2007, so I am glad to see some grave sites I didn't know about. My father was Glenn Fox, and his father was Otto Fox, and his father was Ira Fox. So David Fox was my great-great-grandfather. My dad's sister Gladys, gave me pictures the same as those on this memorial. Please feel free to contact me. I would love to talk to you.
Thanks, Debbie Eytcheson

amanda hundley & bennjamin f huggins
They are our family back a few generations. Would you possibly send me a copy of it. We are getting ready to have a reunion and I would love to share it with family even though it is badly weathered from all the years since past. I have searched and searched for one for years without success. They may even have a better one in their photos and not know who it is. If i get a better one I will share it with you. indepgram@yahoo.com
