I am a retired medical clerk and have been interested in genealogy since I was a child. I have lived in Ottawa County, Salina, Chapman and Junction City, Kansas, so I'm familiar with cemeteries in Ottawa, Dickinson and Geary Counties; and some in Wabaunsee and Riley Counties.|

Connie, Thanks for transfer of above sites. When you photographed the Barlow sites, did you see a stone for Thomas Barlow who died in 2008? He is not in Abilene Ks cemetery records. Wondering if he is in Good Hope with parents? Richard.

Connie, Thanks so much for the good pictures, and the added information on Charles S Avery.
I was dumbfounded, years ago, when I discovered Jennie's uncle from VT, buried here. So much to learn from cemeteries!
Appreciate all your good work. JWR

Thank you for adding the new photos for John & Kathrine Backes and Margaret Grattan in Wakefield cemetery. The better quality photo gave me the date of death for Kathrine that I had been trying to find out. Much appreciated.
|Cheryl White||White/Trickle links|
Thanks for the links. They've been added to the pages. I did a little extra in the bios for Gladys Trickle Ocker White and George Phillip White. Looks like I need to work on my Trickle family records again......

Thanks for adding photograph on above site as well as others in Abilene Cemetery. I have about 500 to 1,000 sites in Abilene Cemetery that would welcome photos on them. Richard.

Thank you so much for your great pictures and all the work you have done for those of us who can not get to all the places we would love to go and see.
May God bless you and yours for your kindness,
Charlene in Texas
Thanks so much for your hard work. I'll have to go through my family tree, as I'm sure I will have more ancestors buried there.

No problem! And thanks for the photos, too. Are you related to the Beals? Rachel's husband Charles, AKA Bud, was my great uncle.
