Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my husband (Steve Patterson) and I are interested in our genealogy histories and enjoy the "detective process" of finding our ancestors. After unexpectedly finding images of my great-grandparents' tombstones on the web, I was thrilled - I'd never seen their tombstones before. This helped us to realize that documenting cemeteries on the web is a wonderful way to help other genealogists find their relatives. We enjoy this tremendously and have started planning our vacations around which cemeteries we want to visit.

I am leaning on the tombstone of Alpheus Osborn, my great-great-great grandfather who lived in Fairfax, Iowa.

If you are a close relation to any people that we have listed and would like us to transfer the memorial to you, please let us know. Be sure to include the CEMETERY NAME where they are located and your FAG MEMBERSHIP NUMBER!

Family names that we are interested in are:
Missouri, Polk County: McDaniel, Phipps.
Kansas, Cowley, Sedgwick, Sumner Counties: Kessinger, Cooper, Green, Brenton, Wilsey, Osborn.
Kansas, Rice County: Greenbank, Crawford, Wilsey.

George W Cole
Hello Kathy:
Thank you so much for all the effort put forth on your part. The obits really help a whole lot.
I would like a little more information if it is available for George (?my first cousin-4x rmvd)
Find A Grave Memorial# 37760753

I believe his parents to be Richard Cole (born CT) and Priscilla Yokes (PA). They were the parents of 10 children...8 died before 1900 (6 unmarried)
Census for George shows his parents as born CT-PA; Rich&fam lived in Kinsman OH (Trumbull County) which is right on the OH-PA line. Erie County is just north of where this family lived.
The child mentioned in obit as in Ohio was Cassius buried in Kinsman Cem
Circumstantial evidence only. would like to know if there is some specific evidence that George is part of the Richard-Priscilla family.
I would love to link George with the rest of his family--only if we know your George is my George!
