|Bio and Links|
I grew up in the hills north of Winkler in rural Riley County, KS, on the farm my great grandfather homesteaded starting in 1881. I went to school at Randolph and, after living in Manhattan for about 25 years, have moved with my family back to the farm (much to the dismay of my wife). |
I became interested in genealogy, because I am the last one in my branch of the family to carry on our name. I did not know if anyone else in another branch was keeping track of our lineage, so I decided I needed to lest it be lost to the ages.
A coworker told me about Find A Grave, and when I first pulled it up, I could not believe the amount of information that was available. I found it invaluable for tracking down names and dates for my family.
When my dad passed away, I guess my own mortality became apparent to me, so I got more interested in contributing information. Hopefully, long-lost relatives and future generations can use the website to help keep track of their heritage.
I am not related to some of the people for whom I have created memorials or for whose memorials I care for, so if you are related, please request a transfer. I would much rather they be cared for by a relative.
I am not one of those people who pontificates the official Find A Grave rules on which relatives can and can't be transferred. I figure it's first come first served, and you can fight it out amongst yourselves.

Distantly related. Bruce DeWyke is my 2nd cousin, 3x removed, via the Rice side of the family. My fourth great grandfather was Enoch Rice.

|Dennis Woerman||RE: Anna Woerman|
Louisa (Lulu) was married to Frank Bergstrom. They are buried in the Fancy Creek Randolph cemetery. There was also a brother Fred who is buried in the St Peter's cemetery.
May I ask if you have a connection to our family?
|Dennis Woerman||Anna Woerman|
Yes, Kevin, Anna Woerman and Lydia Rothlisberger were sisters. Anna was my grandmother.
|Dennis Woerman||Ulrich Rothlisberger|
While looking for some information on family members buried in St Peters cemetery I noticed that you were look for where Ulrich Rothlisberger was buried. If I'm not mistaken he and Lidia are buried in the Clay Center cemetery.
|Richard Kleinschmidt||RE: Lilburn Toburen|
Ada is Lilburn's second , third or forth wife.
I do not know which number is right. Ada birth name is Dougherty, She is still living.
Thank You, I have been doing research over 40 years
and I am trying to donate it all to Find A Grave so
others will not have to do the same research I have done. I wish others that take pictures would donate
the memorials to genealogists so children can be connected to parents.
|Richard Kleinschmidt||Lilburn Toburen|
Are you a relative of Lilburn?
Lilburn was the husband of my Aunt Ada
so I guess makes him my Uncle but I am not
direct relative of his.

Kevin, that's quite alright....you made me look! =) ...and I found some more info on his family.
|Sally Miller Hindley||K. Gnagy|
The K. Gnagy (70810823) that I have listed is the son of George and Caroline (Hartline) Gnagy.
|Brandon Hagedorn||Ulrich Rothlisberger|
I'm 99% sure that he isn't buried there. I photographed all but one or two headstones in that cemetery. So old that you couldn't read anything on them. I was thinking that he might be buried somewhere around Riley or Randolph. I'm thinking that I stumbled across some Rothisbergers. Cannot remember where though.
|Brandon Hagedorn||Ulrich Rothlisberger|
No, I'm not sure where. All I have down is that Ulrich was born 09 Sep 1892 in Bodaville, Riley, KS, married to Lydia Wiechman 29 Dec 1915 at St. Peters Church, and died Nov 1979.
