Bio and Links
I have been working on discovering my roots and family history and found this site. I finally made a profile after taking some photos of family graves.

When I am not seeking out my kindred dead I take care of my 2 toddlers (21 months and 3 years), garden, knit, and do a lot of cleaning (though to the untrained eye you would never know!).

John Smith
While answering a query on the Osage County Rootweb list for Matthew Headington (husband of Elizabeth Smith), I found this little snippet concerning John Smith's birthday--just thought you might like to see it:

"John Smith celebrated his 84th birthday, Friday, July 31, says the Burlingame Enterprise. Mr. Smith came to Kansas in 1854 and has ever since resided on the farm west of town--just 49 years this fall. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Bacon and grandson, Harry Amos; Mrs. and Mrs. M. T. Headington and Miss Mary Smith." -- Hutchinson News, Aug. 18, 1903

Purely by coincidence I found that the Headingtons were related to my Hardesty family back in Knox Co., Ohio. I have no interest really in Osage Co., except that I made a genealogy website for it:

Miss Smith's parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. John Smith, settled in Osage county in 1854.

Lynch pictures.
Thank you very much for your kindness. I haven't been using Find A Grave very long and am amazed how much it has grown and how very helpful people are!

I wonder if there is a stone for the children and Travis W Lynch and wife Josie (Josephine) somewhere else?

This is info on T W Lynch grave.

Died at home on his farm 1898..
Burial: Burlingame City Cemetery No dates readable from marker, but states Capt. T W Lynch . Laid to rest by the GAR with soldiers honors.

Would that mean there is a special place in the cemetery for Civil War Vets?

I hope I can help more people out also.
