|Nola Marquardt||RE: Adam & Eva Messer Photos|
The Gridley Library has a map of the cemetery. It is not the easiest to decipher but it has helped me discover the owners of some difficult to read stones. The map locates your grandparents in the middle of the cemetery. If you stand with your back to the large memorial gate and walk west, you will pass their graves on the right (north)shortly before you reach the paved drive. They are buried in the row of lots that border the unpaved drive. Their lot is in the second row east of the intersection with the paved road. I believe there is a large tree at this corner. It should be easier now that you know what you are looking for.

I just want to thank you for taking the time to take these pictures and post them. I live in Washington State and don't know if I could ever get to Kansas and do research myself.
Thank you so much, Mel

You may want to add this to the Verna Schaefer obit. I can't do it, as you added the original obit. ted

|R.Bye||RE: Harold Luthi|
Thanks for transferring my dad's record to me. I am related to every Luthi that is buried at the Apostolic cemetery in Morris, so if you want to transfer all of them that would be nice. I could add bios for them when time allows.

Matt, Thanks for taking the time to check. The lack of a headstone for him does not surprise me. Thanks again for your efforts. Dave
