Bio and Links
I am a patent attorney living in Kansas City, Missouri, however my roots are firmly planted in Texas. My father's people were German Catholic immigrants who settled in Texas both before and immediately after the Civil War, with some arriving before the battle of San Jacinto. His family names include Kleypas, Beimer, Dolle, Haar and Eggemeyer. On my mother's side, I am descended mostly from old south plantation families who came to Collin County, Texas to start over after the Civil War, including the Smith and Bumpass families from Person County North Carolina and the Harris family of Southampton, Virginia. I also have ties to the Richmonds of Lee County, Virginia, the Allison and Harless families from Madison County, Alabama, and to the Wisdom Family who came to Collin County from Arkansas.

I am always happy to make edits to memorials, and will gladly transfer memorials to family members of the deceased, unless they are my ancestors as well.

Answering your July 9, 2014, message
Mark Kleypas,
The Osborns from which I got my name go back to a Thomas Osborn who emigrated from England to Virginia in 1619. A much later generation was Edward Osborn of Charlotte County, Virginia, and 1n 1810 Floyd County, Kentucky. He killed two men in 1813 and was either killed by neighbors or he left the area. His widow Sally (Burchett) Osborn in 1818 had my great-grandfather Albert Osborn whose father was a May, likely Reuben May, so I do not have any Osborn DNA. Lee County, Virginia, families i am descended from are Flanary, Bailey, Horton, Ely, Blubaugh, Luster/Lester, and Hix, for which I have considerable documented information. I do not have any direct connection to the Richmond family but some relatives married Richmonds and are included in my 1,024-page Flanary book. I was born in Cass County between Archie and Drexel, and live in Lee's Summit.

RE: Mundays
I'll be going out to the cemetery as soon as the rain stops (12"+ so far!) here in the San Francisco area. We only got 5" for all of 2013 and now there's been 2 1/2 times that in a few days .... more to come!!

Mark, I can't claim your requests yet because I'm already at the Find A Grave limit of 21 claims at one time but I thought I'd let you know now that Virginia is indeed buried with her husband, site 4-21-70.
