RE: Floyd A and Elsie Smutz
My mom was a stickler for that. She got all my aunts' family pictures, then when my mom died I got them all! A lot of them I photographed and put on Find A Grave! Thanks to her I could figure them out.

RE: Floyd A and Elsie Smutz
You are very welcome. This came as one of those chance kind of chain reactions based on an edit someone sent me for Mrs. Smutz, a correction on her death date (don't know how I misread it - after all, I took the picture!). This, along with several thousand other memorials from Sunset, was transferred to my care from a Mr. Lewis Browder who transcribed them from Riley county and sexton grave records. I have been photographing this cemetery extensively and using some of that to fill in memorial gaps. I found your record through Abner Smutz when I decided to try to add more information on his memorial. Always fun to fill in the missing pieces and send these people "home". Have fun teaching!

Left edits for Floyd Smutz. A duplicate memorial from Sunset Cemetery, Manhattan KS is in process of deletion. Transferred Elsie Smutz.

RE: Thanks!
You are so welcome! I enjoy taking photos for people. It was a cold and windy, but beautifully sunny day!

I found the Illif Cemetery and unfortunately I would guess that sometime in the past that cattle had roamed among the stones. All stones that we found were broken. We dug out all of the stones that we could find but unfortunately Mariah was not amongst them. So sorry I was not able to confirm her burial.

RE: Thank you
You are welcome! I really enjoy looking for graves and photographing them. It's even more interesting when it helps someone with a personal connection to the person.
