Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Michelle Renee "Shelley" (Latey) Broyles. I am the mother of three children and Oma of three. I graduated from The University of Kansas in May with degrees in Applied Behavioral Science and Psychology. 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 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 and not mine (LATEY-FOX or BROYLES-LONG 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.


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. I am having some very serious health issues that may result in brain surgery.

Please be as patient as you can. I know some of you have been waiting months for a response. I am not ignoring you. I am starting to work through some 500+ requests now.

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.****

Gussie DeVault
I have come across some letters to Gussie and was wondering if you knew of any family members that would be interested in having these. Most are from the late 1800's and early 1900's. Please let me know. Thank you, Judy

Andrew Barnet #17979694
Hi Shelley, Andrew was my 3x great grandfather and I have lots of information about him - would like to write his biography and link him to family members. Do you mind transferring this memorial to me? Thanks, Judy Member #47246018

David Fox
I saw your photo request for David Fox in Resthaven Cemetery (Oklahoma City). I did a quick obituary search and found his obit. I am able to email it to your through The Oklahoman's email system if you like. In the obit it says he is buried at Resurrection Cemetery.

Van Schoelandt
Hi Shelley,
I grew up in Shawnee. After my father died, my mother married Johnnie Van Schoelandt. He was a wonderful man who we love and miss. I am LDS. I see that you have submitted the names of many of our Belgian ancestors for temple ordinances. Congratulations! I would LOVE to connect with you and help each other along the way...

Hi, you seem to be the person who added this grave to the site. I am trying to determine if this Samuel A. Barnett was born in Leeds, England, United Kingdom. Would you have any information on that? Thank you,

Thomas Jefferson GILLIHAN
Hello. Thomas Jefferson GILLIHAN (#24097287) is my 2xs great-grandfather on my mothers side, so I was hoping you wouldn't mind transferring him. I do a lot of GILLIHAN research. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time.
