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.

W. H. Harrison
Thanks, Anita. The man living in Franklin, Franklin, Kansas (Wellsville) in 1885 was my gggrandfather living with his daughter Lucinda Ellen Harrison. He lived in Baldwin, Wellsville, and other areas of Kansas near those cities. Everything you gave me indicates the man buried in Garnet Cemetery is the correct one I am looking for. Thank you for the excellent information.

Thank you so very much for your hard work and is appreciated. Just wanted to see if you have any more information on one of your memorials (W. H. Harrison, Memorial #79501129) in the Garnett, Kansas, cemetery. The name is right, the death date is in the correct range of dates, but my gggrandfather of that name was born in about 1807 and lived in Baldwin Kansas in 1885. To verify his identity, does your source of information mention his age, birth date, or any thing that could help here. I would appreciate any help you could possibly give.

RE: Mary Reffett
I am not going to pursue this, I will just take my Mary out of the "picture" and let Mr. Cross be the one to be contacted with any information necessary to better his Mary's Memorial. Thank you for letting me know of the duplication. Pam

Minerva Mahan
Do you know if there are any living relatives of
Minerva Mahan and William Mahan? Minerva was
my great grandmother's sister. Her name is Sarah A Toothaker, but I cannot find any trace of
her. She married Spencer Toothaker in Ohio.
Who were Minerva and Sarah's parents?? I've been
told it was Ide, but can't find any proof. Thanks for your devotion.

Julia Ann Chapman
I have found more information on Julia. She was b. 9-1-1831 in Madison, Madison County, New York to Warham Chapman and Thankful (Parker) Chapman.
Her father, Warham was b. 3-7-1783, d. 7-13-1820. She had a brother named Zenas, b. 9-7-1807 and he moved with Brigham and Julia Ann to Oconto Wisconsin, and on to Friendship Township. He raised his family there and died there. She also had a full sister named Louise b. 1819. Her mother remarred to Eber Lindsley and had about 5 more children. Julia's grandfather was Ezekial Chapman, a "frontier" minister.

Thanks for adding this information in to Julia's Find a Grave site.

I can't believe that I still had a copy of the photo. I have added it to the memorial again.

Hi Anita
I will try to get back up to the cemetery this coming week. I took the picture of Sr but not Jr. The one on Find A Grave, for Sr was 1974, but I will look for Jr who died in 2011. I need to get back up there again anyhow.

RE: Carolyn J Landis Williams
I think the other person should have noticed yours and not added a new one....but that's MY opinion! Becky

RE: Carolyn J Landis Williams
You are not suppose to add a memorial before they die. You did this to my Aunt and she is still alive!
