Kiefers in Mount Calvary Cemetery, KS
I'm not sure about this, but it appears that Louis & Maria Kiefer had at least three children, because they are all buried together with Louis & Maria. Their names are Louise H. (1888-1892), Philip E. (1902-1904), and George F. (1896-1897). I have photos of them along with Louis & Maria if you need them and if they are, in fact, their children.

Will of Thomas Bryant

My name is Karen Martin and I am the registrar for the Paradise Valley Chapter DAR. I have a prospective member that is going in under Thomas Bryant. The DAR records show that Thomas died much earlier than 1847. I would like to use his will to prove he recorded a will dated 25 Nov 1847. His date of death will suffice from his cemetery record.

I left a message with the e-mail address on your Find A Grave page as well. I have found your transcription of the will of Thomas Bryant at It states that your source is "January 1848, Grundy County, MO". My question to you is, What is your original source? Is it a will book or a court record? Do you know the microfilm number of the source? Or better yet, do you have a digital copy of the source as well?

I don't mind ordering the microfilm, I would just like to know what I am looking for.

Hi, her record can be found at Search underCA. (births & death record section) CA Mortuary & Cemetery Records 1801-1932. Libby Bryant died Nov. 28, 1919, is what I find. Good luck in your research.

Elias Powell - Patriot or Loyalist?
Dear Kari,
No worries about transferring Elias. I'm glad to know that he is related to you and that makes us distant cousins! I am descended from his son, George, whose daughter, Mary, wed Allen Laxton, whose son, Thomas Jefferson, was my great-grandfather.
Recently I have found an interesting story about Elias and wondered if you knew about it. He is said to have been the Aide-de-Camp for Colonel Ferguson of the Loyalist Army in the Battle of King's Mountain, an important battle in the Revolutionary War. Ironically, he is also listed as a Patriot in the DAR database. Apparently, he took Col. Ferguson's whistle and it stayed in the family for some years as reported by his grandson, Nelson Albright Powell.
Do you have any further information on this?
Cousin Liz :)

Hi Kari!

Glad you were able to track the Swearingens down. James is actually my grandfather, and Robert and Richard my uncles. I just double checked and everybody seems to be correctly linked up. Let me know if you are noticing something I am not!

Sorry to be so slow getting around to your requests. I am so far behind. The hurrier I go, the behinder I get. :)

Thanks for being on top of things. Hopefully I have linked all the people you requested. If you are related I would gladly transfer them to you.

:) Susan

Aurea Morgareidge 53872084
I have found an error for Aurea E. Morgareidge 53872084. Her name is actually Anna Elmira Morgareidge. I have posted her headstone. I don't know how I missed it originally.

The cemetery records state Aurea but I feel this is definitely wrong.

I am the one that originally created her page.

Here is her death Notice:

Anna Murgareidge. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Morgareidge, whose death was announced in the Friday edition of the city papers, was buried Friday afternoon. The funeral was rather private, as the little girl died of scarlet fever and diphtheria, and it was necessary to have the funeral private. Rev. Richard Whitehouse, director of St. Peter's church,
conducted short services. The interment was at Mount Hope. The Smith undertaking establishment had charge of the funeral.

Semi-Weekly Enterprise no. 10 April 14, 1908, page 5

I noticed Vera Kylander Buell is listed here twice -- perhaps you could coordinate with the other memorial to list only one of Vera's graves. The attachment to Major Buell on one of the memorials is correct.

Hi Kari

I just found Margaret in the 1940 census. She was in Portland OR with her mom. I don't know where Arnold is though. It's just her and mom but it says she's still married.

Friendly suggestion. Using the "Edit" button and "Suggest A Correction" is easier and safer than perhaps mistyping a number. (I have added some info to Asa's memorial.)

Lay family
Hi Kari-
I'm trying to link my Lay family together via Find-a-Grave... James Newton Lay #31209159 and his 1st wife, Mary Bryant #66422382 were my g-g-g-grandparents and were the parents of: Watesel (1829-1874), Rufus (1832-?), Thomas N. (1834-?), John (1836-?) Kissah (1840-?), Asa (Azor) Oct. 2, 1842-Jan. 29, 1929, and Patterson (1847-?) Would you add the other children to James Newton and Mary Polly Bryant Lay? Also, Asa (Azor)#18196756 is my g-g-grandfather and I would like to link him to his parents, James Newton and Mary Polly Bryant Lay.
Thanks for your help!

RE: Thank you
Thanks for your message, Kari. Yes, Wathena is a sweet little community. I grew up in Omaha but we used to make the trek to Wathena once or twice a year. They had a great "Fall Festival" on main street, and several of my cousins were Fall Festival queens. My Aunt and Uncle still live on the "farm" about 7 miles from the farmhouse where my mother and her 7 siblings were born.

Your bloodline research sounds really interesting. Funny that I am a college professor and teach traditional research methods at the graduate level, but honestly, I am pretty clueless when it comes to anything related to genealogy. A second cousin that I didn't know existed contacted me about a year ago (on my Dad's side) and has done a lot on It was pretty cool to learn more about that side of the family. But I don't know much about the Herpel/Meng side. I am in occassional contact with two uncles on the Meng side, Don and Bob, brothers who also live near Wathena (in fact I was the flower girl at Don Meng's wedding). I would love any information you would like to share about the Mengs and Herpels. I am headed to Southern Cal on a research consulting trip tomorrow, but wanted to get this message sent before I leave.

Thanks again for all your work!!

Thank you
Hi Kari,

I just happened upon my grandfather and grandmother's burial records on the Find A Grave website and noticed you had created them. Thank you! I'm new to this site, and had no idea their data was there, until I happened to google my grandmother's name. Elmer Herpel of Wathena, Kansas was my grandfather. Frieda Meng Herpel was my grandmother, although I never got to meet her. She died when my mom, their daughter, was just 11 years old. I notice you also created a page for my Uncle Howard's grave. He was one of my mother's older siblings. He was one of eight children born to Elmer and Frieda. Only two of the eight are still living, an Aunt in Wathena and an Uncle in Denver. The older I get, the more I love making connections to family members and learning more about family history. It was great to discover this. Thanks for your work in creating it!!
