Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Michelle Renee "Shelley" (Latey) Broyles. I am the mother of three children: Jonathan, 22, a Marine; Mikaila, 19, a student at BYU; and Tessa, 17, an exchange student in Germany. And grandmother of two beautiful granddaughters. Right now I am a full-time student; pursuing a major in Psychology and Applied Behavioral Science. I have been researching my family for 18+ years and put as much time as I can into the hobby. My husband, Dan, jokes that my idea of a good vacation is being in a cemetery, which isn't far from the truth. Everywhere I travel I try to stop and take pictures of cemeteries in hopes that someone will be helped in finding family members. I live in Johnson Co., Kansas, so if I can be of help please contact me and let me know. Happy hunting everyone!

I am a full-time student, so my time is very limited. I get a lot of requests. Please be as patient as you can. I promise I will get to them. I am not hard-nosed as some contributors are and will be happy to transfer memorials if they are in your family lines. Also, when communicating remember that "you get more with honey than with vinegar." Thank you everyone!

OH, one more thing, I have the sexton records for the Olathe Cemetery up to, I believe, 2006. I have yet to get them all up. I have taken all the photographs of tombstones if there is one. I am still working on getting all of those up. Let me know if you are wondering about someone and I will look them up for you.

PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE A REQUEST FOR A TRANSFER OR MEMORIAL CORRECTION DO IT FROM THE MEMORIAL DON'T PLACE IT IN MY MESSAGES. Only leave messages if you are thanking me, or are, or think you are related. As I go through my messages I delete them, so that I know that I have responded or read them. Please know that I see and appreciate every one of them! :)

**** Sometimes life happens, and it is happening to me right now. Please be as patient as you can. I know some of you have been waiting 3-4 months for a response. I am not ignoring you. I see that some of you have gone through administration, which is fine, but please don't be threatening or passive aggressive. I am a real person, with real feelings, and with a real life. I am not retired and don't have a lot of time on my hands. I love this work and love you all for the wonderful work you are doing.****

Mary Lane

Grave volunteer here in Olathe!

You posted a gravestone in Olathe Memorial Cemetery that is not listed on their website. I have found others as well. I am keeping a list to turn into them at the office and was wondering where the tombstone/gravesite for Mary LANE was that you took so I can direct them to it. Her # 26635270.

Thanks for all you do !

I signed up to be a contributor just 9 days ago, and have visited 2 cemetery since. I now know first hand how much work goes into a site like this. I would just like to thank you for what you is a lot of work. I'm feeling very blessed to be a part of such a thing, and look forward to the next trip hunting. Thanks again!

Find A Grave Change
A friend told me about this chance a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section or do linking.

Transfer request for Mark M Sanders
Shelly, Hope that things are better for you, if not now, then very soon. Mark Sanders is my gg uncle. I would like to manage his memorial, Link him to his wife, children,and sister (my gg grandmother). Also would like to add a special bio about his military service as he had some unique experiences. Mark has his bio in Goodspeed's History of Tennessee.
Since you are temporarily unavailable, I hope you don't mind that I have Linked him to his parents. His mother has a tragic young death story and she was the granddaughter of a Hero of the Revolution. Hope to hear from you in the very near future.
Sincerely, and best wishes, Kathleen Hill in CA

Martin NOT Mastin Kennedy - Mem. No. 26583401
Just wanted to let you know of the typographical erro in the listing of Find-a-Grave Memorial No. 26583401. The name is MARTIN KENNEDY, not MASTIN KENNEDY, as seen on the tombstone. I have more details on this Martin Kennedy if you are interested. Lynne
