I have been an active member of two genealogy societies in southeast Kansas -- Cherokee County Kansas Genealogical- Historical Society in Columbus and the Crawford County Genealogical Society in Pittsburg for over twelve years. As I go through old newspapers and funeral home records, I find many persons who do not have tombstones and they also deserve memorials on Find A Grave.
Thomas J. Carlton Thank you very much for the location of Thomas' grave. William C. Cuthbertson's "Crawford County Tombstone Inscriptions" stated for Mount Olive Cemetery that "quite a number of lots in this cemetery were purchased by Crawford County for county burials." One of them must have been used for Thomas. His older brother, Robert Edwin Carlton, was so successful that a street in Pittsburg was named after him, but Thomas died in the poor farm.
Any chance you would have an obituary for Michael Hughes 4 Jun 1914 and his wife Mary 10 May 1905 both buried in St. Bridget Cemetery. Not everything is on the internet especially newspapers. Any help would be appreciated.
James G. McLean In doing research on the McLean family, I find that there are many of them in St. Bridget Cemetery, including Ann Hughes McLean and several of her children, including Owen Francis McLean, Margaret McLean Hudson, James Bernard McLean and Mary McLean. Would you have any information that would tell if James G. McLean 111290353 is the husband of Ann Hughes McLean and the father of her children? Thank you for any help in connecting this family. Mary, researcher for LGS
John Imhof Ella, thanks for the obit, which I have added to his page. Also you might be interested in knowing that I came across two obits in 1906 for John Buzzard and his wife, who are buried in McCune Cemetery. I'll be adding the obits later this evening.
