|Bio and Links|
My name is Joe Chrisman, I have been the Cemetery Sexton for the City of Winfield for 17 years and a genealogy buff for over 20 years.
I would be glad to transfer any memorial I have added, as long as the person is not related to me.
My Chrisman line started in Virginia, moving into Kentucky and arriving in Kansas in 1884. My 6th Great Grandfather Jacob Chrisman and 7th Great Grandfather Jost Hite, were the focus on the television series "Who Do You Think You Are?", Tim McGraw episode. What a thrill it was to see my family genealogy on TV!
I am a amature Civil War researcher and manage the Facebook page "Civil War Veterans Buried in Winfield Kansas Cemeteries". Please check it out and "Like" the page as well.
I also interested in "Co. H, 1st Kentucky Cavalry" history. My GG Grandfather Isaac "Ike" Chrisman was wounded 19 January, 1862 at the Battle of Mill Springs. Some say it was Ike Chrisman that fired the fatal shot that killed General Felix Kirk Zollicoffer. Documentation of this can be found in "A Boys Story of the Battle of Fishing Creek Kentucky" by John Worth Simpson.

Thank you Joe for checking on their markers. I appreciate the job you are doing for so many of us that aren't able to get to the cemeteries.
|Judy Mayfield||Charles M. Smith|
Could you check for me if Charles M. Smith is buried at Union Cemetery, Winfield. He was born 1870 and died 1902. I have a family member inquiring about him. Charles is susposed to be buried with his parents John Riley and Mary F. Brown Smith who are buried at Union.
Thanks for checking.

Dear Mr. Chrisman,
I noticed you left a memorial on John A Beltz's find a grave.
I was wondering if you are related to him?
I have reason to believe he is my 2nd Great Grand father.

I found headstone picture on my ancestry page. I have asked for permission to copy. Keep your fingers crossed! :o)
|Heather Brey||RE: Philip Werle|
Yes, Adolph Werle was the eldest child of Philip and Augusta. He was born April 28, 1878 in Milwaukee, WI. He left home at age 23 and as far as I can tell he moved to Kansas at some point before WWI and maried Clara Gastil, who had 2 daugters, Fern and Carrie Gastil. They all lived together in Crowly County, KS, according to the 1920 Federal Census. (If this is the same Adolph H Werle)
|Judy Mayfield||Jethro Cochran|
I have corrected the name of Jethro's father to James. Not sure why I had it listed as John R. Cochran.
Thanks for the heads up.
