Wilma Handley
RE: Lottie Stevens
HI Bob--Yes, I can help to clarify your confusion. John B. Handley committed suicide in 1914 while the family lived near Abeline, KS. John was buried in Abeline, as were some of the other family members. Lottie lived alternatively with her sons Cecil and William in the last years of her life. Cecil lived in Ellinwood, KS, so Lottie was buried in the same plot there, where Cecil and his wife Hannah were later buried. Sorry I don't have any other info on Lottie specifically, but I do have a ton on the Handleys. If you would like Lottie and John's obits, email me directly at, and I will send them to you. Regards--Wilma

It is Nancy Hartman and her group who are doing the collecting and it is she that I received the information that I gave you. So we are both working with the same person....Shirley

Another message. If you want your grandmother listed on the cemetery and you have something that shows or tells that is where she is buried, go ahead and submit her name and info or if you prefer, I can do it for you. If you have an obit, I would love to have a copy of it to add to our database at our local genealogy society in Platte County. We cannot and should not let our ancestors be forgotton....Shirley

Bob, I do not have good news for you. It appears the records were destroyed in a fire and records that may have been at the funeral home are no longer available. Can you believe they wrote the records on a wall and then it was painted over when the funeral home was redone. I can tell you that there is a cemetery association that has taken on the care of the Granville and it is being kept in better condition as well as having been deemed a Historical site and they are tring to collect enough donations to get a plaque put on the cemetery stating this. The cemetery was "witched" and many unmarked graves were found which they in turn put crosses. There are people who care and doing what they can for this one cemetery.....Shirley
