Bio and Links
Bio Photo Christian husband and father of three, US Army Veteran, Historian, Writer and Genealogist. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Columbia College.

I am the Founder/Past President and founder of the South-Central Missouri Civil War Round Table, former Graves Registration Officer of Old Abe Camp #16 Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and a member of the Cold War Veterans Association

I began my interest in genealogy while searching for my ancestors who may or may not have served in the Civil War. My paternal line resided in Southeast Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin and has been traced back to the mid 1600's. My maternal line mainly resided in Illinois and came from Germany/Poland shortly before WWII.

I am originally from the St Louis area, Collinsville IL. to be exact, spent 10 years in the south-central portion of Missouri in Pulaski County and currently reside in Topeka, KS.

My current project is categorizing all the Civil War soldiers in Shawnee County and their final resting places. I am also completing a list of Civil War soldiers at Rochester Cemetery in North Topeka.

Rochester Cemetery,Topeka, Kansas county section
Those persons that are confirmed to be buried in "county section" and have a legible marker have all been photographed and posted to the respective Find A Grave Memorial pages. Hiram McCraken is one of the confirmed with no marker. I am sorry for not getting the "Hiram McCraken" "County" informaion posted before your claim.

There is a website, I think, that lets you get copies of death certificate and other genealogical items.

I found Sarah Elizabeth Shirrell, wife of George W. Shirrell and daughter of Frederick Boldrey and Mary E Swick. This is you GGMother, yes?
Death Certificate #28454, File 14.
