Finished the Grace Cemetery in McDonald, Kansas just in time for their 125th birthday. Still missing a few obituaries but someone recently found some old newspapers so I'm hoping they get them on microfilm so I can look at them.

I am now working on the St Francis Cemetery and the Bird City Cemetery. As soon as we get some warmer weather, I am going there to take more pictures.

Anyone can use my photos for the geneology research. Please credit me for the picture, but you do not need special permission.

If anyone wants any of the memorial that I have posted, just send me a message. I will be happy to transfer memorials if they are not my immediate family.

Working on my family trees since 1976.

When my brother passed away in March of 2010, I wanted to do some kind of volunteer work in his honor. Since he is buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery, I became a volunteer for that cemetery. However, I also wanted to do the photos of my family that have passed on. Since my husband and I are retired, we began stopping at many little cemeteries and taking pictures of tombstones and listing them on the web site.

Thanks to everyone for their nice responses for the pictures I take.

Marilyn, #47393995

Thank you so much your taking your time to take a picture of Wilson H Banes headstone. I have been waiting years to find his burial location and now finally have a pic of his headstone. Keep up the great work you have done!

Rebecca Mysick
For Rebecca Mysick you have listed as Thomas Nelson Talley's mother. He is buried in St. Francis Cemetary. Where did you get her last name? In my family papers the spelling is listed as Messick and I am just wondering if that is actually the correct spelling or not. Thanks for your help! Kaycie

RE: Price Blinn Websterhipps nd Mabel Corey Phipps sorry for my "crazy"....I should have looked harder. I KNEW I'd been there before but forgot to check before posting. I am sorry. I will return next Monday and get the correct locations and photo for you.

RE: Eliza Webster
You sent me an edit for Eliza Webster #44850568, providing me with her maiden name. So are you saying you are talking about a different Eliza Webster? Thanks.

Eliza Webster
I've been looking at Eliza Webster. Can you tell me where you sourced her maiden name. I remember creating her memorial and thinking she died so young. Thanks.

RE: John Haug 106817301
My apologies... I don't know if I answered you. I am just now seeing your message and went to search my inbox. I found it! I've been ill since Nov of last year and I'm very behind on things.

Thank you so very much for sending it. I am going to attach it right now to his family tree and place it in my paper records. Sorry again for the long time you had to wait for me to respond and know how much I appreciate your effort.

Marilyn - if you set up the memorials I can go in and add the photos for Emily, Fred and Helen. Use the years, as shown on the photo, for now and....Monday (my "normal date" to go to the Mausoleum) I will research Emily/Fred and Helen to see what date(s) I can get for you. IF I find more than the year I will e mail you or send an "edit" through.

When you have the memorials set up request a photo and THAT will remind me to add the photos AND give me their memorial number for additional date info.

I LOVE hearing you "found" someone.....On my pretty extensive genealogy tree....I have one paternal uncle who vanished into the air....I keep hoping that he'll show up as I do Find A Grave "work"

I will look forward to seeing your requests and doing the adding of the photo!

Marilyn I just fulfilled your request for a photo for Viola and Lester Weaver. I note there are a bunch of others in the niche and IF they are family and you wish to set up memorials...let me know and I would be more than happy to add the photo to their memorials also.

Best wishes,
