Remember this is a team effort. Other great contributions have added headstones to these sections.

I will transfer, but please state your relationship. I love to transfer!

If I have accidentally added a duplicate record please let me know and I will promptly remove it.

If you have a better headstone photo, please add it.

Regarding obituaries, send an edited version only.

You may use my photos for personal use. Please cite the F.A.G. memorial number and cite me as the photographer. This includes posting headstones on

You had left a candle on Vida's page in Mount Hope Cemetery, Shawnee County, Kansas. I have updated her page and that of her husband, Evan.

RE: Swedish Cem.
Hi Diane-
The cemetery is in terrible shape, and there are only 6 markers remaining, and none are readable. One has the Johnson surname on it. I am meeting with others on Thursday to see if we can find orig records. I just wish I could retire and work full tome on this!!

Nice to hear from you, and let me know if you would like to help out :)

John O Ames #100720174 & #100720288


I am wondering if you would be willing to transfer John O Ames and his wife Ellen A Ames to me. They are my great great grandparents on my father's side.

Thank you for considering this and for the work you do at Find A Grave.
