Jacob Lesher
The 1880 U.S. Census has Jacob Lesher 101898870 and his wife 105617926 living in Bourbon Co, KS; and the 1885 Kansas State Census has this family still living in Bourbon Co, KS. His wife is buried in Bourbon Co, KS. The Deepwood Cemetery lot owners list does not show a Lesher as having purchased a lot there, and no gravestone was found for him in two previous Deepwood Cemetery surveys. Neither of the two abstracted newspaper indexes list a Lesher as having died or being buried in Deepwood Cemetery in 1885. Could you please share the source for placing his findagrave memorial in Deepwood Cemetery? Thank you.

Re: Re: Palmer David Lesher
Have you ever thought that the Palmer Lesher you are looking for is the same. Ima didn't pass on until 1991, as my experience when I was widowed I kept all utilities in my husband's name, I went to change everything & they said it wasn't necessary, it is a common thing with widows. This could be a case with Ima just keeping everything the same.

William Foy
Hello Nina, my name is Teresa and I am married to Jeff Fly, one of William's grandsons. Since we know his last name was changed sometime before he went Ingo the military we would like to know if you are sure if he is your cousin. If so we would love to talk with you about him since we have very little to go off of before his marriage to Cloe Irene and we would love to know more about him and his family. Thank you for your time.

Hi Nina,
I have added the links. With all the snow and low temps this winter it seems to me like the longest winter ever. I can't wait to be able to get back out into the cemeteries again.
Have a great day!

I suspect that
Mary Foy died early in 1838 during the winter while giving birth to her second child 'Infant Bixler" who also did not survive the that winter.

Jefferson then remarried sometime soon after that and a year after this tragedy happened Isaac was born to Mary Catherine Jones.

Dates don't add up.
Isaac was Born in 1839 not 1838.
Mary Foy died in 1838.

Find a grave says his Mother is Mary Foy but she died in 1838 and he was born in 1839....

Something does not add up here.
