RE: Mem # 17463749
I did a little research on and managed to find Philip in KS. I added a few links, and sent links to other siblings. No documents, but hope that helps.

William Reed (Crown Hill Cemetery)
Hello Betty,

Sorry for the very late reply on your request. Due to lack of time and so many requests it is hard to complete them all in a timely basis. Also I have been off line for a very, very long time.

You sent me the below message,

“William I Reed - I am looking for a William I Reed who purchased lots in the Cedar Cemetery, Cedar KS. on Nov 4 1899. I have record of his purchase of the lots and there are 3 cement grave stones marking graves of 3 infants. Do you also have his obit and know who his wife was? I would like to know if he ever passed thru Kansas.”

I do not have any information for William I. Reed and do not know if he passed thru Kansas. I set up his memorial a while back and I just posted a photo of his grave stone for you. He is laid to rest with his wife, Ellen Eliza Reed.

I photographed the plot# 140. You can see I in the left hand corner. It is still in Section L as stated before.

Hello Betty (Infant Gaddis Cedar)

This is Scot Gaddis I hope you remember me, David and Sondra's youngest. Well I have been doing some genealogy on my family line and I first want to thank you for all the time you have put in with photos and bio's for Find A Grave. Well I have discovered a connection for the infant Gaddis grave in Cedar Cemetery. This was Lindsey Gaddis son of William Irvin, and Mary Francis Gaddis. I hope this helps with the unknown or maybe you already knew. My best wishes!
