Bio and Links
Bio Photo Even though I really enjoy researching my family history, my purpose and calling in life is to serve as a missionary for my Lord Jesus Christ. I serve through World Gospel Mission (Marion, Indiana) in Bolivia, South America, which has been my home since 1986. I am an ordained minister, a seminary professor and have been somewhat of a writer.

I was born in Ohio, spending much of my growing up years in that state. My wife is a New Englander and our two children were born here in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

My interest in genealogy began when I started sifting through old papers and boxes of photos following the death of my maternal grandfather in 1979. It is a fun hobby of solving mysteries of the past and learning more about history.

I hope some of the information and photographs that I'm posting will be a help to others in their own quest to learn more about their family roots. If you think we share some common ancestry, I'll be pleased to share what I know.

RE: LeRoy cemetery Thorntons
I have made those changes, I also corrected the grave picture. When doing hundreds in a row I have added the spouses grave picture on accident a few times, usually I caught it. :). If you have any other information I would be happy to add it. I have access too many obits for the area so I may be able to locate that one soon as well and will post it.

RE: Thornton grave in LeRoy, Kansas
My main interest is just getting everyone in the cemetery listed as I originally went in to fill some photo requests that were there and noticed a number of unreadable graves so I cleaned those up and started shooting all of the graves for pictures and in doing that realized many hundreds are not listed so even after numerous hours in there I have to return to try to get them all listed.
