Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my husband (Steve Patterson) and I are interested in our genealogy histories and enjoy the "detective process" of finding our ancestors. After unexpectedly finding images of my great-grandparents' tombstones on the web, I was thrilled - I'd never seen their tombstones before. This helped us to realize that documenting cemeteries on the web is a wonderful way to help other genealogists find their relatives. We enjoy this tremendously and have started planning our vacations around which cemeteries we want to visit.

I am leaning on the tombstone of Alpheus Osborn, my great-great-great grandfather who lived in Fairfax, Iowa.

If you are a close relation to any people that we have listed and would like us to transfer the memorial to you, please let us know. Be sure to include the CEMETERY NAME where they are located and your FAG MEMBERSHIP NUMBER!

Family names that we are interested in are:
Missouri, Polk County: McDaniel, Phipps.
Kansas, Cowley, Sedgwick, Sumner Counties: Kessinger, Cooper, Green, Brenton, Wilsey, Osborn.
Kansas, Rice County: Greenbank, Crawford, Wilsey.

Please transfer George Junior Hively (32182796) in the Mulvane Cemetery to my ownership. I would like to link him to his parents, grandparents, etc.

Picture of Pvt. C.H. Bate Stone
Would you mind if I used the picture of the stone of Pvt. Charles H. Bate? He was a great uncle of my husband. We don't want to sell the picture or profit from the use of it, but would like to include it in our family history on ancestry. If you don't want us to use the picture, we will understand. Thank you.

Mother suffered greatly due to cruelty, ignorance, injustice and greed. Those responsible will answer to Jesus who loves Mother.

This is a relative of mine, I never met her but it saddens me that she was not treated well

Gustavus Arnold
I recently requested a photo for Gustavus, and the volunteer could not locate him. When they went to the cemetery office to inquire, there is no record.
Will you please clarify as to how you received and recorded this information?

Thank you!
