Bio and Links
The descendants of the old settlers, those who cleared the land and first upturned the wild sod to the sun, should see that the doings of those early years are fittingly remembered and recorded.
It was once remarked by a great writer that those who take no interest in the deeds of their ancestors are not likely to do anything worthy to be remembered by their descendants.

Please leave flowers or memorials on my memorials, I believe everyone deserves flowers, and I have a great family. Thank you in advance.
A BIG thank you to those who send histories, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions.
You may use my pictures and information for your family trees but I do like credit. This is all put on findagrave for your family trees because so many people have helped me with mine. Thank you.

Please read Find A Grave's Transfer Requirements before requesting a transfer "THE FIND A GRAVE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for a transfer BUT PLEASE do no ask for a transfer that is not within these guidelines and PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.
Putting requests on this site you will be ignored, and erased. Ignorance is not bliss it is just embarrassing for you.

Virtual Cemeteries as we have done.

PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB ON THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE OF THE MEMORIAL TO SEND CORRECTIONS AND REQUESTS FOR TRANSFERS. Will gladly add any obits and will add links to family members. "

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out On polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our heart contracts and beat a pulse Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so.I wonder if you lived and loved,I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.

RE: Robert Frizzell
Hi Barbara, I see the documents you've found and I'm wondering if you would still call the cemetery to confirm his plot location because there are no plot numbers like the one listed in either Leavenworth or Fort Leavenworth cemeteries. And there's always the possibility that the family had him buried somewhere else besides LNC or FLNC. Your thoughts? Mary Ann

Walnut Grove Cemetery

You posted a Christopher Ausman memorial # 22082281 with dates 1785-1849. The cemetery records have a Christopher Armbrust 1785-1/22/1849 but nothing for a Christopher Ausman.

I believe we are speaking of the same person. Please correct your memorial.

RE: Marylen Florence Gates Roe
Yes, Marylen married Millard's son from his first marriage, then a Dennis Wood, Richard Fisher, and at least 3 other men that I know of. She had a son named Walter Jaye Roe, one named Michael Wood, and then my mother who was a Fisher.

RE: Uncle Jess Gates
June died as a small child... she was hit by a coal truck. I was lucky enough to meet Bill (William) and his wife Jean before they passed.
My grandmother was/is Marylen Florence Gates (Due to a family rift, I'm not sure if she is still alive).

RE: Uncle Jess Gates
Jess and Lillian were my great grandparents. Lillian is buried with her second husband Millard Roe in Perris Valley Cemetery, Perris, California. Neither have headstones because there was a disagreement in the family and the insurance funds vanished.
