There is no record of his nor his wife's burial in Mt Hope Cemetery, Almena KS entered in the Sexton's records. A better thought would be they were buried in Mt. Olive Cemetery in rural Norton Co., KS. I have reviewed all the Mope records as well as walked the cemetery and I do not believe they were buried at Mt Hope. We've found other instances where the two cemeteries have been confused with one another. James Moore

Adding Friends
You helped me once before but I have forgotten how to add friends to my contributor profile.
Would you mind doing that once more.

Miss You!
I am so sorry to hear of your death. I so enjoyed emailing back and forth. You will be greatly missed! Thank You for all the memorials you created for my family and teaching me about Find A Grave. Thank you for the pic you sent of my Grandfather preacher and yours together in their younger years! You meant so much to me even though we never met! Now you get to experience the Heavenly Realm! Thanks Dave

RE: Pleasant Boatman
I'm not related in any way, and know nothing about the family. Just doing some basic looking at recent Overton Cty, TN families, and you have the extent of my knowledge. :)
