I am an amateur "genie" researching many family lines in both my husband's and my own family.

During the summer of 2010, we re-traced the path of the wagon trains that brought our families out to Kansas, which took us through MO-IL-OH-PA. During our trip we not only visited the Historical Societies, but also many cemeteries where we cleaned or uncovered headstones, took photos, and documented the information for not only our records, but for future generations.

HEADSTONE PHOTOS: My husband and I have spent considerable time, and in some instances driving great distances, battling weeds, heat, rain, bugs and critters to take these photos. Saying that...please feel free to use any photo for your family records. Please be respectful and do not re-post to any other memorials on FAG or any other public grave website. Should you find any questionable information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This summer 2014 we are working on Lincoln Cemetery in Lebo, Kansas and Arvonia Cemetery in Arvonia, Kansas.

My husband's family lines are: Clewell, Cryder, Clester, Brink, Donley, Dixon, Derrick, Downs, Reid

My family lines: Hitchcock, Higgins, Homire, Heskett, Van Buskirk, Meek, Robinson

Happy hunting!

Fife family
Do you happen to know about the Meade/Hardin Co., Ky. Fifes, specifically Commodore Perry Fife and his wife Drusilla Wright? Commodore is a brother to Robert Ezra Fife's father.

Walter 'Roy' & Donna Johns headstone
I have double checked my source, Roy's sister who is my sister-in-law, and they are both buried in her parents' plot of Walter and Emma Johns in Reading Cemetery.

That was really fast!! Thank you for posting the picture. She was my sister-in-law. Her husband was here for the Small Reunion this past weekend.

'no stone found' added under note. Now I know what three stars beside the name mean, in the cemetery record book I was looking in. The marker pictured in 'Catalpa Trees and Memories' belongs to Henrietta, John and their little son Arthur. I assumed it belonged to Emma.

RE: Clester connection
Hi Nancy, I don't have any information on the Clesters, but I do have some photos of my great grandmother Margaret Ann Clester on my Ancestry Family Tree. By the time I got interested in genealogy, both of my parents had passed. You're welcome to email me and I will send you a link to Margaret.

Willie Clister
Find A Grave Memorial# 70996971

More than happy to transfer Willie's memorial to one of his family members.

The little cemetery where he is buried is next to the house where my uncle lived for about 40 years before he died. I remember as a child going into that cemetery which was badly overgrown with weeds at the time. The people who live on the other side of the cemetery now take care of it but so many headstones were lost during the years because I know there used to be many more.

If you add more info to Willie's memorial, would you let me know? I'm just curious about him - such a simple headstone.

Thanks - Toni
