Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born August 29, 1943 in Powell, Wyoming. I joined the US Navy in 1963 and spent 2 years in Southeast Asia in the Philippines and Vietnam. I then attended the U of Colorado for a year and a half under the NESEP program and was then transfered to Europe for 4 years, stationed at Rota, Spain. After that I was sent to Washington D.C. for 4 years. At that time I retired and attended Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma, where I attained a BS in Mortuary Science. I owned and operated two funeral homes, one in Moline, Kansas, and the other in Sedan, Kansas, for 26 years. I retired from the business in 2001. I am currently residing in Wichita, Kansas, and am an accountant for Wal Mart Corp.

I am married, the father of two daughters. I have traced my ancestry back several centuries and am still in the process of chasing down my brickwalls.

As a former funeral director, I find cemeteries fascinating and love to contemplate past lives and histories of the families there.


I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what Find A Grave is about by those discovering the site for the first time. The time members have put into their efforts working together and sharing information is not up for grabs based on same-name surname or lineage and I will not do any of these type of transfers.

Thanks for the info., I contacted the woman in Colorado. Can you please attach May Catherine Brogan Murphy, # 22567628 and Ella T. Brogan Fulk # 22690653 to their father John Brogan, # 22558050. Thanks for all your help. Brogan Reunion in Moline on Oct. 10 and 11th. I can only go on the 10th. It would be nice to meet you and if you have anything to share on the Brogan, Larkin or Meegan families or Boston Cemetery these families would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks. Mike in Wichita.

Daniel Hennigh
Thanks for fixing that, Del. I had visions of everyone taking it for fact and confusing the Hennighs completely.

Robert Daniel Hennigh
The Robert Daniel Hennigh that you have the memorial for in Kansas was not Robert Daniel, but just Daniel Hennigh. He was the FATHER of the Robert Daniel Hennigh who married Osa J. Jennings. After Osa's 1922 death, Robert Daniel married Alta abt 1929. They lived in Nebraska and can be found in both the 1930 and 1940 Nebraska censuses. Robert and Alta had no children. He died in 1940 and is buried in the Bingham cemetery in Bingham, Nebraska. Alta died in 1991 and is also buried in Nebraska. She did not remarry after Robert Daniel's 1940 death.

Regarding Elizabeth 'Betsy' Dutton Phillips. You have her listed as the wife of Orson Decatur Phillips. This is incorrect. Elizabeth 'Betsy' Dutton Phillips is the wife of Oliver Perry Phillips (Memorial# 91043279). The wife of Orson Decatur Phillips is Elizabeth Atkinson (Memorial# 120902901).

Hope this helps,
Rex Baker
Phillips/Atkinson descendant

Fred Axtell
Hi Del,

I finally was able (delayed by illness) to fulfill your request for Fred Axtell today. I noticed an adjacent gravestone, same design, for Elva J Axtell. There is not F-a-G entry for Elva. If you want to create a memorial for her I will be glad to respond to the photo request.

Also, I noticed there are two other F-a-G listed Axtells without photos at El Toro Memorial Park: Claude D (1896-1978); and Agness Louise (1901-1975). If these are related folks you'd like photos for, just let me know.
