Bio and Links
Many of the memorials I've added have resulted from me having a photo of a gravestone but not finding a memorial on here. I'm happy to transfer those memorials if you have a connection to any of them.

COPYING MY PHOTOS: I add photos here for the benefit of those who are not able to visit the cemeteries of their loved ones. If you want to post my gravestone photos in your own family trees, please include in the photo caption "used with the written permission of M Baker (#47751648) at" and keep a screen-print of this page for your records.

RE: Kruse photos
M. Baker,

You are welcome to use the photographs in any way.

A couple of things,

With the Ernest Kruse stone was a Mame E. stone that was not listed on Find a Grave so I added the record and photograph.

The other "Ernest Kruse" stone actually reads: "Ernst Kruse". With that memorial is the Bertha Kruse stone that is very hard to read. I rubbed the stone using news print and a crayon to bring out the text on the stone and photographed that as well.

Good luck with your genealogy efforts!

RE: Tyringham Cemeteries
Yes, and thank you so very much for asking! I see my photographs all over the internet and yet you are the first person who's ever asked permission to use them.

What is your Heath line? I don't know if you read the blurb I posted in my "bio" section, but this is a multi-part research project I've been doing for the past two years. Though the Heaths are a fairly well documented family, there will be a lot more information in the Tyringham archives when I'm done. In fact, I'm headed up there next week for another research trip, and am hoping to finish the project before fall.

Thanks: no, she was not a relative.

RE: Bertha Skelton
My error--that should have been 1882, not 1892, for DOB. She was 13 when she died in 1896, and 12 in the 1895 Kansas Census. That is what I was going on; however, it is more probable that she was born in 1881, since she was 12 by the census date of March 1, 1895 and 13 at her death on Feb. 14, 1896.
Thanks for notifying me of my error.

Valley of Rest cemetery
I would be happy to take the photos you have requested. However, that is a huge cemetery. Do you happen to know in what part of the cemetery those graves are located, so that I don't have to search through thousands of graves?

RE: Thomas Clark
You're very welcome for the photo. It's still gratifying to find a stone that is at least recognizable as a particular person's by the remaining information. This stone caught my eye by the "s" before the last name Clark. When I looked closer I saw the 1765 date.

Rose Hill
I have been to Rose Hill and they will not give me any of my requests. But, they said if you call them, they will honor your request for you. One problem was that they do not have good records before 1970.
Contact: John Kueneman general Manager
They said they would even send a picture.
Good luck, Karen K
