Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy working on genealogy & learning about our family history. Adding family & relatives to Find A Grave is my way of keeping their memories alive. I'm very grateful to all those who have taken photos of gravestones in addition to adding memorials here.

All but four entries are relatives of mine. If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you (because you are related to that person more so than me), I'll be happy to make the transfer. :-)

RE: Franks & Leliefeld Obituaries
You are welcome. I have more coming. I am doing the research for one of my younger cousin's wife, so when her kids get old they can see their family history. I also added a couple of memorial to the Springdale Cemetery, based on the idexing done by M Rail, she had this information at interment .net but it is now at Her researched shows that the people I added at buried there but with no headstones. Besides I am medically retired and when it snows icy and cold, I can't go out. So doing this keeps me from going crazy.

RE: Van Mulligen & Soet's

I'm happy to help. Just happened to be working on taking photos in Section A right now and happened upon your memorial. Sometimes I read them and yours caught my eye as the headstone didn't have dates on it. So I got curious and the rest is now history. Hope the sources helped. If you have other memorials in the cemetery you may hear from me again as the cemetery contains about 7500 souls and I have gotten through the first 1400 or so. Happy researching and see you later.

Dicy Ann Munson Haverty
Another item to address is her place of birth.
I believe she was born Daviess Co., MO. 12 Dec. 1850.
In 1850 her parents William Munson (Jr.) and Patsy Mary Estes Munson were living in Daviess Co., MO.
Here are their Federal Census for William and Patsy Mary Estes Munson:

1840 Warren Co. Il. pg. 192 Ward 3
William Munson, in same area brother
Solomon Munson (my 2nd ggfather and family)
1850 Daviess Co., MO Dist 27 page 390
1860 DeKalb Co., MO Maysville pg. 123
1870 William Monson, Clay Co., MO.
P.O. Liberty 729-729
"Liberty Tribune" Death/ marriage record information.
William Munson Jr. died 12 Mar 1875 near Liberty,
Clay Co., MO. from nose bleed.
Patsy Mary Estes Munson death 6 Feb 1876 near Liberty, Clay Co., MO. Will Made out 2nd Jan. 1876 in Liberty, Clay Co., MO. She must have been
ill to make out a Will.
Both are probably buried but can find no confirmation in Little Shoals Cemetery.
Years ago Mrs. Hazel Marie Kelly of Olathe, KS a descendant of Elizabeth Emma Munson Moore and I had worked on this family.

Marriage in obituary date in error
I have William Kinney Haverty marriage Minnie A. Freeman as 24 Dec. 1896 not 1872 Lenexa, Johnson Co., KS.
Her obituary could have been in Johnson Co. instead of Douglas Co., KS. Librarian didn't put down newspaper or county on the back of a bad xerox copy from the 1980's.

I have marriage of William Alexander Haverty to Dicy Ann Munson as 24 Dec. 1868 Clay Co., MO.

On the birth date of Dicy Ann Munson Haverty
died 14 May 1886. I had her birth as 22 Dec. 1850/51 not 12 Dec. 1850 and was trying to correct my error if I had made one. I was questioning what was on the tombstone because of the shadow across the stone in the picture.
We can calculate the birth date if we have death date and how old she was at time of her death in days, months and years. Which I think was what you had done.

Date ?

Mrs. Minnie Haverty
Mrs. Minnie Freeman Haverty died Thursday, September 11 or 14th at her home, three miles south of Eudora. The funeral service was held at the home sunday Moring at 9 o'clock, and the body brought to Olathe for burial.
Miss Minnie Freeman was born and raised near Lenexa and grew to womanhood in this county. She was united in marriage to Wm. Haverty,Jr., in 1872 and to this union four children were born two sons, Lester and Cecil and two daughters, Lorena and Nettie.
It was while her children were in school and Mr. Haverty on a short business trip to Lawrence, that she cecame suddenly ill. She at once attended to call him over the telephone, but fell dead before getting the call through.
She was found about noon by a farm hand, who had
come in from work for his dinner, and they were
unable to tell how long she had lain there.
Mrs. Haverty was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Henry.

Where are she and William Kinney Haverty buried in Olathe, Kansas?
