Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just retired as a Christian Church minister. Spent the last ten years in Arizona ministering with a wonderful church. Decided to return to my roots and do what I didn't have time to fully do -- genealogy. have published a book on the descendents of Lubbert Jacob Dykstra. Am working to update that one and to publish another on my mother's side. A larger family and more brick walls.

Mary Olive Conner
Wayne, my name is Grace Alice Parker Dreher. Are you related to Mary Conner and how did
you get her picture and birth certificate? Mary Olive Conlee Conner is my great grandmother. Do you have any more information about her? I was
7 years old when she died. Maybe I have formation that you do not have. Please contact me

RE: White Family Cemetery
very sorry to hear about your brother. Lost my younger brother, Kenneth, in 2010. Much too young.
I would certainly enjoy sharing info and learning more about our family history. Not sure where you are located, but I am in Greenwood, MO.
If you live in the area, maybe we could get together sometime and compare notes.
I have a tree on Ancestry (White/Davis)that you might like to look at.

White Family Cemetery
George White is my 3G Grandfather, Bloomer is my 2G Grandfather, andd Richard H.D.C. is my Great Grandfather'.
I am wondering if Ray Dykstra is related to you. I believe he was involved in relocating the cemeteery and providing the new headstones. I believe he used to live in Lee's Summit, but has since relocated. Any info you have is appreciated.

Your grandmother Penelope
Wayne, I just went ahead and transferred the listing to you and you can decide what to do. I just had created her listing when I did some other listings so the information would be there to connect to.
Kind regards,

I added the links to Eliza's parents and the link to her spouse. The number given for her mother was incorrect but I located the correct memorial number. I also added the rest of her name.

I will be making a transfer of her to you in hopes you will add more information to her memorial site.

Thanks for the info Wayne!

Wish we could remove the improper photos but since we didn't post them we can't. Maybe you could contact the folks who posted them and explain you were just there and the corrections which need to be made. Guess its worth a try.

Thanks again ~

Bertha Galloway
I responded to your request for photographs of Bertha Galloway's headstone, but was beaten to it by someone else. I have now noticed that the person that responded, was unable to fulfill your request. I went out to the cemetery and took pictures of Bertha Galloway's grave, and have the pictures. The headstone for Bertha, listed ONLY her name. "Bertha" on a granite block. She was however, surrounded by other Galloways. On Bertha's left is "Mother" Matilda V Galloway, 1863-1940. On her right is a double headstone, "Galloway" Vivian E 1896-1909 and Willis K. 1882-1903. On the left of that stone, is "Father" Samuel J Galloway 1859-1926. If these headstone's match the information you need, I would be HAPPY to put them on the website for you. Let me know.
