NOTE: I am back from my family emergency. I will try to catch up within a short time period. Thanks for being patient :)
Please read the below information before sending me corrections or edits. Failure to do so may keep your corrections from being done.
Also, please use the NEW EDIT system... do not send me emails with corrections that can be done by the NEW system... it takes longer and can be done wrong.
Any of the following items that are changable via the NEW EDIT system are to be sent that way:
Birth/death date, birth/death place
Plot or GPS
If you do not send them this way, they may not get done. Please do not use the OTHER option for these items.
Note: With the New Year upon us, one of my resolutions is to be able to do more graving, etc., both behind the scenes and out in the field.
Hopefully, personal issues that may be taking place this year won't affect me too much, and may actually give me more time.
Have a great and prosperous year :)
Greetings! I am a F.A.G. volunteer for Atchison County, KS. If you have any questions about cemeteries here, feel free to email me and I will try my best to answer.
I am also working on getting the cemeteries from surrounding counties entered / corrected.
Sometimes, real life gets in the way and I may not get something done within a few days... if you haven't heard from me, or a change hasn't been made, after 2 weeks, please send me a reminder.
Please read all notes as they are important...
Thank you and have a great day :)
Most of my memorials were created from the 'Kansas Room burial listings' that are listed in the 'References Used' section below.
Most errors in my memorials are due to transcription errors in that list. I am in the process of correcting the errors from there but it will take a long time and a lot of research.
I am more than happy to make corrections... just be polite about it.
Please do not leave me corrections on this profile page. See below for instructions on how to send corrections... that is the preferred way for me (and for Find A Grave, see FAQs). Thank you.
Please use the Suggest a Correction link on the EDIT tab on a memorial if you'd like to send me questions or suggestions. Any left on my profile page will be ignored.
If I have created a memorial for your immediate family member and you would like it transferred to you, please use the Edit link located in the upper right hand corner of each memorial and the Suggest a Correction (S.A.C.) option.
I have no problem transferring memorials... just ask (and use the S.A.C. link).
Also, if you find any errors I have made, please use the EDIT tab on the memorials to send me a Suggest a Correction. I appreciate people helping me fix errors.
Also please send any additional information you have via the same method and I will add it to the memorial.
All 'Date of Death' fields that were originally from the above sources (books / website) are actually the burial dates. Most cemeteries only record the burial date as that is what they have in their records.
Please let me know when the burial date is incorrect and you know the Death date. Thank you.

Thanks so much for taking the time to suggest calling cemetery office. I did so, but they/it could not provide burial locations, so I would have to write. I'll delete my requests and I appreciate your suggestion.
|Luella Hinrichsen||Mary Longberg|
Thanks for the link to her father, always my pleasure to add these! The names you are researching are all familiar ones to me, wonder if Stephan could have evolved into Stepan also.

Thank you for trying. I have removed the photo request.

|John Stoutimore||RE: re: William Otis obituary...|
Franz, you should re-read the Find A Grave rules (on posting a pre-1922 obituary). They say not to post an obituary UNLESS you have permission. The rules go on to state that, in general, obituaries published before 1922 are in the public domain (meaning original copyrights no longer apply) amd one doesn't NEED permission. But if copyrights DID apply; there's no difference between posting an actual obituary, and transcribing it word-for-word and posting the transcription. Lots of Find A Grave rule-citers are misinformed on this.
Thank you so much for the transfer!
Best to you,
