Bio and Links
Bio Photo I pursued old-fashioned genealogy in cemeteries, libraries, and courthouses for several decades and communicated with fellow genealogists by mail and telephone. Am now reveling in internet research, digital photography, and email. The latter make researching fifth cousins twice removed much more feasible, if not sensible.

Find A Grave is a wonderful resource, and I decided to say thank you for the work of others by entering records from local cemeteries. Many thanks to Ione Sweers whose notebooks on the cemeteries of Anderson County and Dorothy Kipper Lickteig whose abstracts of newspapers in ANDERSON COUNTY EARLY GLEANINGS and ANDERSON COUNTY KANSAS CEMETERY BOOK make this easier.

If I have created a memorial for one of your close relatives and you wish me to add information or link them to parents or spouses, just let me know. If you request a transfer, please follow Find A Grave guidelines.

You are welcome to use my photos in your family genealogies, post them on Ancestry, etc.

Maiden Name Correction
Thank you for your photos and documentation!
Findagrave Memorial #76305724 for Augusta May Hawley
Correction: Her maiden name was Perry. (You have listed it as Thomas.)
1. In the 1910 Federal Census for Union, Anderson, Kansas, May Hawley is listed on line 65 with her husband Eugene Hawley on line 64. Her mother, Esther W. Perry is listed on line 100 (the last line). Under her mother's name is written "*Mother-in-law of Eugene Hawley, line 64".
2. Her daughter Faye Opal (Hawley) Fulwider's California Death Certificate states that her father was "Hawley" and her mother was "Perry".
3. In the 1880 Federal Census for Lincoln, Anderson, Kansas she is listed as "May A. Perry" and is the daughter of David and Esther Perry. The 1885 Kansas State Census lists her in this family as "Gusta" Perry and the 1895 Kansas States Census lists her as "Aug" Perry. (Her father was David Perry and her mother was Esther Wiley Moore.)

RE: Caleb Townsend
I'm glad it worked, and I'll leave it alone if it is OK--I don't want to risk messing it up more.

RE: Caleb Townsend
Anita, I'm not any good at this, and I think I accepted your edits instead of transferring ownership. Please get in touch with me and give me step by step instructions on transferring the grave to you. Thanks, Jim T

re: Caleb Townsend
All the find a grave info was entered by my wife Helen Templin. She passed away on 12/8/12, and I do not know where the information is. If you will tell me how, I will turn the gravesite over to you to manage.

Keren Newcomb Craig
Craig, Keren Newcomb 79092795 b. 1891 d. Apr. 9, 1953
Garnett Cemetery, Garnett, Anderson County, Kansas, USA
Keren NEVER Married therefore the Newcomb should not be in italics. She was brought up by her double aunt and double uncle, Jessie (Craig) and Charles Newcomb, also buried in Garnett. Her parents and most of her siblings were buried in Welda, KS cemetery. Jessie Brown Craig was her grandmother who brought up her sister Katherine Craig after their parents died. My husband's mother's parents were one of the 3 Newcomb siblings who married 3 of the Craig siblings: Obadiah Newcomb's children:
Charles Newcomb married Jessie Craig, no children, but raise Keren.
Mae or Mary Newcomb married Albert Craig, marker in Welda Cemetery, KS.
William Newcomb married M. Alice Craig, they had 8 children. All but three are buried in Garnett. Jessie Newcomb Myers has a marker in Norwich, KS., son Rev. Thomas Higgs Newcomb, maybe PA, and daughter "Georgia" Newcomb Paden, Indiana.

Anton F. Miller
Am not sure where the exact dates, came from but these dates do not relate to the month and year of Anton F. Miller's birth and death.

Can we attach to this Find A Grave entry what is on the stone?

Simply 1847-1930.

Appears that the other dates might come from St. Boniface Cemetery and a descendant of Anton's brother Joseph. Who seems to have a relative/descendant named Anton as well

Thanks again for performing Find A Grave on this great grandfather.

RE: Anton Miller(s)
Anton F Miller born March 29, 1847 in Stadelhofen, Germany

Anton F. Miller died August 9, 1930 in Greeley, Kansas

Where is St. Boniface? Is that in Scipio, KS

He had a brother Joseph die and be buried there.

Can you send me a picture of the other stone?
