Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired after many years teaching special education. I now spend time researching and photographing cemeteries in northeast Kansas. There are many small pioneer cemeteries near here, some of which are still working cemeteries. I also try to watch over and tend to the physical graves of our local Viet Nam losses.

I gratefully receive transfers, but I am not a "collector" and rarely request them except for the closest of relatives. If you wish to transfer to me, you may, and I will care for them. If you choose to maintain memorials you have set up, that's fine, too.

I am now reconsidering transferring outside of guidelines as I have transferred a number of memorials that have not been maintained--updates are not done. I usually do corrections/additions within 24 hours, so if you have "tons" of additional information, please send it. Additions and corrections are celebrated! I truly appreciate those who use the new edit system to send them.

The Finn Cemetery is real and located at :
5 th Meridian
T 40 N
R 10 W
Section 13
32667 County Road 213, Vienna, Maries County Mo

It is on the Ewers farm which at one time belonged to the Finn family and has seventeen people buried there. Altho their are no markers, that is where Barnett, his first wife Mary and his second wife Malinda are buried. According to the Ewers family you can look out the kitchen window and see the cemetery it is a plot 30 x 60 feet in an area that was an orchard at one time.

Thanks for posting the edits. I am still figuring out which contributors for this cemetery will post cemetery lot numbers. I am also certain that some of this information is not correct.

The cemetery records were kept in a somewhat 'casual' way into the mid-20th century but the cemetery staff is working to make them more accurate. The lot numbers are especially messy with some double tombstones with names credited to lots in different sections of the cemetery. I notice that your Elk relative is in a lot (Lot 1000) with people named Dragoo and Vernaz but have no clue if they are connected. In this part of the cemetery the lots were sold to families in blocks of 8 spaces but sometimes they broke up the lots for single burials. The records only account for 5 of the 8 spaces in this lot but the records are so messy that I am not trying organize the lots just yet.

Best, Jay

Jonathan Starkey - Sunset Hill Cemetery
Hi Suzanne,

I have access to a electronic version of the Sunset Hill Cemetery (Warrensburg, Missouri) records and I am working with the cemetery office to clean up information. Find A Grave has been wonderful in helping and I am also trying to clean up the Find A Grave memorials at the same time. Jonathan Starkey is listed in the records as being buried Feb 1872. The tombstone is not easy to read might be read as Feb. 1 1872. The cemetery records give the age as 78 giving a birth year of about 1794 which the tombstone could be intepreted as reading. If you are interested in burial locations for your memorials, he was buried in Lot 400. If you are following this family I would appreciate feedback other 19th century Starkey records I will add shortly. These are based on the cemetery records and these people not have legible tombstones. This part of the cemetery has many tombstones that I could not read but might be able to when I have a list of who should be buried in the particular lot. There may be tombstones added in the future some of the stones are reduced to few pebbles so I will never be able to put a name to them and the older cemetery records rarely indicate which space within a lot where someone was buried.

Lucy Ancott Memorial
I have been working to track down all my
Aucott Cousin's grave sites. Most Philadelphia Aucotts were buried at Ivy Hill Cemetery.

I believe Lucy Ancott (memorial 115172701)is actually Lucy (nee' Kind) Aucott, wife of Samuel Aucott and mother of Albert Aucott, youngest of 7 sons and 3 daughters born to the couple. The name is often misspelled, and Ancott is one of the most frequent mistakes.

I have found Lucy's burial card and will post it on her page. You can see where the incorrect spelling has been corrected, but it was probably too late for the newspaper notices.

Lucy and Samuel were from Leicestershire, England.
They were married 10 April 1836 at St Margaret's Church, Leicester. Samuel and 3 of his brothers were frame work knitters and weavers.

There was a depression in the Leicestershire wool and weaving industries and at least 3 Aucott families found themselves living at the "Bishops Fee" poor house by 1841. From 1841 to about 1847 they traveled to Germantown Philadelphia where they were offered work as weavers and were very successful.

Samuel's brothers who also came to Philadelphia were James, George, and Joseph Aucott. They were all sons of James Aucott and Ann Frith of Hinckley, Leicestershire, England.

Samuel's 7 sons started a house painting business in Philadelphia called "The 7 Aucott Brothers".
They were quite well known.

Samuel died in 1889 and is buried at Ivy Hill,
and I will be adding his information soon.

Many thanks for Lucy's memorial.
Audrey Aucott

Hi Suzanne, thank you for posting Minnie memorial, her grandfather and my 3rd great are brothers. It's always hard to fine the females from 1800's. I'll be sending lots of info to you to add, or if you would transfer her to me. Will send a request. I also notice that the headstone on her memorial is the wrong person, I'll be sending the person who posted the photo in a couple minutes.

Thank You
