Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for over 40 years and since I have no children to leave my work to I'm trying to share it with as many people as I can so it won't be lost. I have a great love for my ancestors and was blessed to know three of my great-grandmothers. One of my favorite places to go is the cemetery where most of my father's family is buried. I can stand in between two rows of graves and be surrounded by four generations. When my husband and I travel we plan our trips around cemeteries we want to visit. He brings a big stick to beat the bushes and tall grass with and I bring a camera so I can take pictures. Two of our most memorable trips resulted in us standing at the graves of two of my GGG-grandmothers, Elizabeth Spoor Bliss and Electa Buck Chapman, in small cemeteries in western Kansas. It was awesome to think of how far they had both traveled in their lifetime and the things they went through that made it possible for me to be there.

Doing a little work on the West Cedar Cemetery in Phillips co. Kansas and I added a grave photo for Fern Leroy Capps whom you have the memorial for. Stone clearly states as well as your memorial page that she is daughter of W.A and M.E. Capps. Can you please place the links to each on their memorial pages. Thanks

thank you
Electa Buck was my 3rd great-grantmother through her daughter Fannie Chapman Proctor, whose son Myron Eugene Proctor was the father of my grandmother Mabel Proctor Ashton. I truly appreciate all of the work you have done to share the cemetery pictures and information. Please feel free to share any information you have with another avid genealogist. Thanks.

Fanny Marilla Chapman Proctor
My great grandmother is Fanny Proctor. I am trying to get a picture of her tombstone. Since you sponsor the memorial for her on Find A Grave I was wondering if you had a picture of her headstone?

I was able to obtain a picture of her husband Edwin Proctor but not Fanny's. The person that took his stone's picture said he couldn't find a stone for Fanny.

Can you help me?
Thank you, Joyce
