Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Kansas. I have been doing family history research for over 25 years and LOVE it. I very much enjoy walking, photographing and recording info from cemeteries, especially the older ones. Since finding FindAGrave I have made many more family connections because of people's time and hard work putting the info on here. So I am just trying to do the same, help someone find their family connections. I would love to add additional info to the memorials, so don't hesitate to ask me to add more info for you. These memorial don't BELONG to me, so I don't mind transfering to family if I am not related. However, please remember that it takes time to create the memorials and to take the photos and add them. So please don't ask for a transfer just to collect a surname. God Bless and Happy Hunting!!:)

Boyer history
I am a Boyer and see that you have info regarding Peter & Maria Catherine Boyer. Can you tell me where you fit in/who you are descended from? Peter & Maria were my 4 greats grandparents--descended from Peter Boyer Jr and then William Rufus down to Lenard and Earl and then Karl.

I'm not, but I saw their son Lyle's name on a list of unclaimed cremated remains that will be interred in a mass grave in about a month. Was hoping to connect with a family member that might be able to return him to Kansas for burial.

Hill cemetery
I too am documenting the cemeteries around me. So many are falling into ruin and names are being lost. No one should be forgotten.
I have two photo requests for the Hill cemetery. You are the only one who has submitted here. I was hoping you could help me to locate it. I have tried the internet and friends with no luck. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Aaron J Gray
Hi, Toni
At Memorial #
you wrote, "Sarah Kathleen Kepford was born in 1831 in Pennsylvania, the daughter of David & Mary Bortel Kepford. She married Nathan Munson Gray abt 1855 and they were the parents of Aaron J Gray, John Kepford Gray, Celestia Mary Gray, Alice Gray & Sarah Adaline Gray. Sarah died 17 Aug 1889 in Norton county, KS. Rest in Peace"
This is the first I've heard of Aaron J Gray being the son of Nathan and Sarah. Whats your source for that individual?

RE: Duley and Rhoades families
I don't know the answer to that for sure but ... I'm thinking they might have had different mothers. Sorry I can't answer that one for you.
