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.

Are you related to the Beans? I believe that David Bean was married to my GGG aunt Mattie (aka Matilda) Abbott Bean. Matilda was the sister of of my gg grandfather Charles Abbott. Do you know where her parents Alexander and Martha are buried? I am also searching for her sister Maria. I think Alexander, Martha, and Maria are buried in Kansas. Any help you can give me is appreciated. Thanks. Annette Abbott

We need to make a correction to Thelma's spouse. She was married to William "Bill" Link born 1928 and he is still living. It is listed that she was married to his brother Warren Link. Please make correction.
