Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Tech Lab teacher in middle school.
I enjoy genealogy and creating photo album pages of grandkids. I especially enjoy taking pictures of headstones. Cemeteries are lovely, peaceful and quiet.

PLEASE use the edit button to request transfers and make changes/additions to memorials.
Thank you.

Also, since I take a large number of cemstone photos, it is time prohibitive to clean them, especially the older ones, before taking a pic. I will be glad to retake any photos upon request.

AND, I would really appreciate any email communication to include the memorial numbers of the person(s) to whom you are referring. It is so time consuming (and open to error) to find names using the search tool.

Mary L. Patterson Greene
wife of James W. Greene.
Mae: Mary Louise is a daughter of Samuel and Rebecca Patterson. One of her youngest siblings, Isaac Patterson is my gr-grandfather. In research, it is apparent that Mary Louise had a child, Minnie, who was 3 yrs old at the time of Mary L's marriage to James Greene in 1880. Minnie is referred to in census' as Minnie Wilson-Greene. And in some census she is claimed a stepdaughter. I cannot find any info on Minnie other than what are in census records. Is there by chance a Minnie Wilson Greene buried near Mary L. Patterson Greene?

I am working on this one. I'm not sure, but think
that the "original" may have been an Unknown Burial. The admin. is looking into it.
I also sent for correction on the last names for
Michael Shepard and Lars Norloff memorials.
Thanks, Marlene

Carolina Bartels
According to my family tree information, Carolina Bartels Bartels father was Christopher Bartels (1868 - 1948). Christopher's father was a John Bartels, who probably died in Germany.

Carolina's husband was John Bartels (1902 - 1951). His father was Heinrich Bartels (1873 - 1945). I don't have any information beyond that.

Were Carolina and John cousins? Probably not first cousins, but I would not be surprised if they were as close as second cousins. As you know, these first generation German-Americans did not look far beyond their local churches to find their spouses.

Selma H Hobbs
Dear Mae,

I can't tell you how priceless your photo is of the tombstone of "Selma H Hobbs" in Kansas.

I have been researching our family tree for a few years mostly via Sometimes, there is this mysterious "hole." And tonight, upon discovering your photo, I have been able to fill this surprising hole. Words cannot express my gratitude for your selfless endeavor!

My son's great-grandmother is Leona Ruth (nee Hobbs) Wattson, the youngest of 9. Her sibling, Selma H Hobbs, is one of three siblings who died very very young per your photo of the tombstone.

Leona's first son is Allan Seright Wattson. His first born is Kristoph Seright Wattson. And our son is Aidan Seright Wattson.

Kristoph, my husband, and I were fortunate to visit Leona in her golden years. She told us fantastic stories about her youth in Kansas and Oklahoma, but she never mentioned facts about our family lineage. We never knew her father was named Charles Seright. In turn, she would never know that her great-grandson would be named Aidan Seright.

Again, thank you immensely Mae, for helping me with this part of our family's lineage puzzle.

I have a question, you stated you could not find a cemstone for Ruby, but her obit states she is in this cem. Did you check with the office for the exact location of her grave, is she really buried there, most times the office has info about a stone or no stone-did you check that?
Asking before I call the cemetery, because if you already did all this, I won't bother them, but I can if you did not and want me to call them.
Thanks for looking!

If you know how he passed or have any photos or know how I can go about hearing his story that would be great!! Thank you!

Jacob and Rebecca Gillespie
Mae: Thank you so much for this valuable work. It is such a help to those of us trying to find our links. I have pictures of all of the Gillespie tombstones (in Greenwood Cemetery, Council Grove) except for Rebecca---don't know how I missed her. So I will upload those when I have a little time.

Once again, thank you so much for making this effort which means so much to us.

RE: Gatewood Tombstones
Thank you for your efforts. Well I guess that if the genealogical research were too easy it wouldn't be as much fun. Thanks again for the prompt reply.

Resent Photo
May, Thank you so much for the picture of Barbara S Neal.
Do you have a GPS unit to give the Digital Latitude/Longitude location. I would love to have the location of Walter and Mary M Edens #69936498.
If you have a iPhone there is a free app that is wonderful. It is "My GPS Location" it is very accurate, I use it all the time.

Thanks again, Robert Edens
