Bio and Links
Bio Photo My roots are from Appanoose county, Iowa, and Perry county, Pennsylvania on my father's side (Hunter, Burkepile) who came from Scotland/Ireland and Germany, respectively. My mother's side (Harper, Gilmour, Taliaferro) included American pioneers from the 1700's who came from Scotland (Harper), Ireland (Gilmour), and England (Taliaferro) who spread to Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois and other states west.

My husband is descended from the Bartels family of Schaumburg-Lippe, Germany who settled in Saline County, Nebraska; and from the Tatkenhorst family from Oppenwehe in Lubbecke Germany who first settled in Bartholomew County, Indiana and then came to Lincoln County, Kansas.

I have done, and continue to do, research on all the family lines on both my and my husband's side. I have a great deal more information on the family from Lincoln County, Kansas (St. John's and St. Paul's are the churches where they are buried).

Milton and Frances Phillips
Thanks for the photos. Milton was a cousin of my great grandfather, George Wendell Phillips. George was also a 'country' doctor for 30 years in western Oklahoma.

Ruth: You have to transfer that memorial back to Shawdau - so she can delete it ...a transferred memorial cannot be deleted by a second owner and the first creator cannot delete it when it is transferred - if you want it gone - transfer to Shawdau & then let her know to delete it.

Jane Peery
I have sent a general photo of the Campground Cemetery and some Peery graves, and there are many. But there is no marker for Jane. I wanted to send a direct message to you in case you didn't click on the photo on the Find A Grave site, which gives a detailed message. Cathey

RE: Collins grave photos at Forest Lawn, Glendale
You're very welcome. Glad I could help out. I believe in the spaces like that they are one on top of the other.

RE: Center Grove Cemetery
I am a member of the genealogical society and use it often for find a grave. I have looked for James Gilmour without success. Trying to catch caretaker to see if their records show him there and where.

RE: John McFarland grave photos
The city hall in Kirkwood has cemetery maps and could give you caretaker info. The Warren County Genealogy Society has a map and listing of all the site they listed in 1985. Feel free to contact me if I can assist you anymore.

Pauline Long
Did you ever get a more exact location for Pauline Long at Norwood?

I live close enough I could run back out there sometime, it is not that big a cemetery, but if he even would say south or north side of driveway, that might guide me in. Thanks.
