RE: Scoville
Hi there, My husband's family were the Scoville's in and around Iola, KS. His grandfather was John Lee Scoville, his great-grandparents were John Al and Hattie Ratliff Scoville and his mother was June Beatrice Scoville who married Paul Noble Fausset my husband is Larry, June and Paul's oldest child. His great aunt and uncle was Jesse and Lottie Scoville, Harold and Beulah Mildred Scoville Moore, Hazel Bell Scoville, Vernon C. Scoville. I could go on and on about what a wonderful family they all were and we had such fun with all of them. My husband's uncle was Curtis Lee Scoville who was one of the Flying Tigers. A few years ago the Flying tigers came to Okla. City for a reunion and of course, we went to the reunion, it was really an experience to be there. And if you are from that area or are related to the Scoville's, you might know Gayle LaRee Scoville Campbell, one of Hershall and Dorothy Scoville's daughters. We sure miss so very many of them, as they are mostly all gone now. Wish we could turn back the clock and do it all over again. Anyway, glad that you put the memorial on for Mable Scoville as Gayle had emailed us and told us of her death. Also, my maiden name was Fasullo and my husband had been from Kansas City but came to Tulsa and and ended up being here since 1960, Larry and I were in 1961.

RE: Scoville
You are welcome. If the memorial is sponsored, more pictures can be used. I haven't had the time lately to go through all the pictures that I have, but hopefully before long I can. Have fun on Find A Grave, it's a great site to find relatives or to add more information.

Pollock Tombstones
May I have your permission to download the tombstone photos of Lela and William Pollock (80800172 and 80820180? I would like to use them on my family tree on Ancestry. Thank you for your consideration. Barb

upside down headstone photo
If you will click on the photo to see the larger view you can read the engraving which is rightside up. (Memorial nunmber 22853090)
I know it looks upside down - but I think that is caused by the repairs material on the stone.

RE: Allen & Cook Cemetery
Thanks very much for responding, and for your thoughts about the Allen & Cook cemeteries.

You said you only took photos of Section 12 at Yates Center Cemetery, but four of the five memorials in the "Allen and Cook Family Cemetery" (as Findagrave lists it) have photos submitted by you. I hope those photos really are of tombstones in that little cemetery.

At exactly 1 mile north of 130th on the highway there is a bridge over a creek, shown on maps as Owl Creek. Is the Allen-Cook cemetery on the north or south side of the creek?

According to the early land patents, Hiram Cook owned the north half of the northwest quarter of section 35, which would include the cemetery. Hiram was the father of Henry Cook who is buried there . Henry was married to Elizabeth Allen. Her father, John Allen is also buried there, so my thinking is that the county DOT map calling it the "Allen Cemetery" is wrong, and that it should be named "Allen-Cook".

As for the other cemetery which is behind the ponds, do you know where I might find out if there are any tombstones still there, and who they are? I don't find any land patents for the south half of that section (35) that would tell us who owned that property where the 2nd cemetery is located. I think the county DOT map calling it the "Cook Cemetery" is probably wrong too but I don't have another name suggestion yet.

Allen & Cook Cemetery
Hi - I'm working on a project to map all of the cemeteries of Kansas, and I'm having trouble with this cemetery in Woodson County.

In looking at the official Dept. of Transportation road map, it shows a Cook Cemetery just under 2 miles straight north of the Yates Center cemetery just east of the highway, and then an Allen Cemetery about a mile north of the Yates Center Cemetery and 1/2 mile east of highway, behind two large ponds. They are both in section 35, township 24S range 15E.

Can you confirm that the five photos you took (4 Allen, 1 Cook) are all in the same location? Can you provide more exact directions to it (or a GPS location?).

Thanks very much for you help!
~ Chris

RE: Weide questions
OK - My grandfather was Albert Weide, son of Charles H. Weide, and grandson of Gottfried H. Weide. (There were 2 Gottfried Weide's around - Gottfried H. and Gottfried C. -- my Gottfried H was the sponsor at Gottfried C's baptism, back in Germany). Albert Weide bought the property including the round red barn, about 1907-1909? I believe. And yes he WAS struck and killed by lightning in July 1924 while in a field on a wagon just north of the red barn, and according to my dad just across west of the highway. Apparently he went out with 2 of his kids, my uncle Boyd and my dad Chet, to cover up cut hay, because it was going to rain. My dad Chet was sitting next to him on the wagon, and he was struck too, but his injured arm and shoulder recovered in a few weeks ---- So, my grandfather was Albert Weide,and my grandmother was Emma (Opperman) Weide.
Irvin "Susie" was the first child, born in 1904, then Boyd 1907, my dad Chester 1909, Edna 1912, Alan "Bud" 1914, Wilma J. 1918, and lastly Doris (Gorden) 1922. -- Uncle Irvin was a little "slow", not really retarded, but slow to learn. Irvin never married, and stayed with his mom on the farm after all the other kids had grown up and moved away. They finally did give up the farm and move into town (Rutledge St?) about 1955? -- so yes, Irvin and Doris, and my dad were brothers and sister. -- My dad Chet,and my beloved uncle Alan "Bud" moved to Lindsborg, KS in 1947 and started up the Weide Brothers feed store, ice plant, and cold storage business. (My mother was a Swede from Lindsborg). -- my grandma Emma (Opperman) Weide was a sister to Fred Opperman in YC. -- Another man, "Buss" Harder also followed my dad and uncle to Lindsborg, Ks and ran a hardware store there for decades. --- as a kid I used to shoot "at" pigeons in the old red barn with my BB gun, and one time my dad and Gerry Gorden (Doris' husband) took their turn, with no better luck than I had! The wind vane on top of the barn was the object of target practice by my uncle Bud when he was still a young man on the farm. It went flying off and was never put back up. -- on the back of the property was an old railroad bed, the tracks long gone. My dad and I would fish in the creek just north of the property -- nothing great, but would occasionally get a sizeable catfish. -- the house had some limited plumbing (just drains) and no running water. There was a hand pump just outside the house, the only water source. Didn't even have electricity when I first remember visiting there, grandma had the "coal oil" kerosene lamps. She always cooked on her old wood stove, and I can still remember the smells of the kitchen area (mostly kerosene). The only heat was a pot bellied wood stove in the central area downstairs -- grandma would start it up with corn cobs soaked in "c.oal oil". --- grandma left Nordhausen, Germany when she was just 1 year old to come to the States. -- I know her hometown in Germany quite well now, having visited there numerous times while I worked in Germany (1978-1998). -- it's a good thing they left, later came 2 world wars, the near total destruction of the city by bombing in Apr 1945, and then the Communist regime for 50 years. I found living Weide relatives in/around Nordhausen in 1992, and still stay in close contact with them. -- all for now, der Richard Weide (pronounced vye-duh).
