I have recently found John's obituary and wondered if you would like it emailed to you in .pdf or .jpg format. It states he was buried in Sutherland cemetery, where I found his wife's stone, but there was no sign of his. Possibly, his stone fell into disrepair and couldn't be found, or the family changed their mind and didn't bury him there after all. Next I'm planning on going to Summerfield to see if his stone is there.

Helen Newell Gaines
Hi Scott,
You recently sent a message to me regarding Helen Newell Gaines ( I am also related to Helen through my 4th great grandparents, Joseph and Mary Ann Gullen Brown. Helen's grandmother, Lucinda, was my third great grandfather's brother (Richard George Brown).

I. Joseph Brown (~1812-1883) + Mary Ann Gullen (1803-1879)
A. Lucinda Brown (1856-1931) + Ephriam S. Newell (1850-1931)
1. Lewis Benjamin Newell (1875-1947) + Effa May "Effie" Smith (1879-1962)
a) Helen Newell (1901 - 1970)

I'd be happy to learn more about this family and add additional information to her findagrave page. I am particularly interested in the Brown family if you have any information.

Hi Scott, I added a better photo of their grave marker. The program however placed it on the top. As the memorial creator will you please adjust the order the photos are placed?
Same for both memorials.

RE: Cales
Ronald McCartney (#47515388) is the one who found all the information for you and who went to the cemetery. I've forwarded your latest message to him. You may also contact him directly if you like.

Scott, Ronald McCartney,one of the genealogy members, was able to find some good info for you:

Arcade township is between Phillipsburg and Plum township. Also, Hillsdale cemetery is in Deer Creek township, just 3/4 of a mile south of Arcade township.

..In The Independent newspaper, Kirwin, Kansas, Wed., Oct 28, 1891 is the following: "DIED CALES-On Tuesday, Oct 27, 1891, at his home, in Plum township, Mr. James Cales, aged about 89 years. An accident four or five weeks ago, in falling from a ladder while topping out a stack of hay, was the cause of his death. He will be buried today in the Gardner cemetery." It is now called Hillsdale.

..From the Jan. 11, 1882 paper: "In Arcade township, Jan. 5th, Mrs. Leanna Kales, aged sixty [appears to be sixty-two] years; wife of James Kales."

..Went to the cemetery and there is no marker for James and/or his wife. There is one for her son Moses Gaines by her first husband. That stone's picture can be found on find a grave in the Hillsdale cemetery. According to the info put along with Moses' picture, John Baxter Cales that is buried in Kirwin and James Cales in Hillsdale are related.

..Mrs. Cales also has a daughter, Lydia Ann (Gaines) Martin, that is buried here [Phillipsburg] in Fairview. An obit can be gotten for her and maybe for Moses if they are wanted. Ask who you are helping if they want them. They can be typed and then they can copy them and paste them to that person's bio. Just let me know.

RE: Cales Markers
I'll see what I can do. Phillipsburg has a pretty good genealogy society that sometimes helps out with research - I'll contact them. I don't think there were newspapers at that time, but I'll check that out, too. I love this website - it's all about helping each other.

I've transferred Leaner and James Cales to you (82915558)per your request. These memorials were obtained from a cemetery book (see my profile)- members of the local genealogy society walked all the cemeteries in the county back in 1980. I live within 10 miles of Hillside, so will be glad to go there on a nice day and see if I can get tombstone photos for you. Betty

Hi Scott

thanks for the edits for Lillian

I added the marriage info , I didn't usually add the kids names, if the person hasn't been deceased for a long time as they are all likely still living
