Thank you for always accepting the edits I come across while researching using old newspapers. I hope they help others who might be searching for burials in Kansas.

Thanks for the links to her parents.

Janice, my apologies.

I sent the links to Phillip's grandparents yesterday. His links should go to Warren and Ruth. I sent a corrected edit today.

I was adding the links for his parents and must have messed up keeping track.

Ann Harris Humble
Indiana "Annie" Whirlow Mottinger # 67880862
Janice - I have made an online edit for the date of death for my great-great aunt Annie Whirlow Mottinger. In support of that request, I wanted you to know how I found it: Kansas Historical Society, Topeka State Hospital Cemetery, made a search for Annie Mottinger but it was erroneously listed "Mattinger" which is close enough. Heer Register #14140 is on that site and it gave the dates of her death and her burial date almost 10 days later. There is no grave marker but there is a row and grave number given on that site. I thought this might help in making her site more complete. Sad, she was so alone. Ann Harris Humble

Larry Dean Cave
I've updated the page for Larry Cave in Mount Hope, linked him to his father, and have sent the page to Mount Hope for their office records.

I couldn't remember if I actually sent a request for transfer for Samuel Jolly, so I sent another one, if I did. It's been that kind of a week!

Samuel Jolly
Janice, I've sent the transfer request for Samuel.
Sorry to hear about your arthritis. Mine was bothering my hands this winter, but it has eased up with this strange warm pre-spring weather. And, I plan to walk Lincoln section this spring and photograph it. Are there any other sections you started and didn't finish?

Mildred Virginia Reynolds Jolly
Janice, I have updated the page for Mildred in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, and have linked her to her parents and husband. I've also sent a copy of her updated page to the cemetery for their office files.
I'll sent a separate request for transfer for her husband, Samuel, as I now have a death date for him.
Thanks so much for your help.
BTW, Mildred was quite an accomplished lady!

Keith McDonald
Leah M Wardlow

you added a photo for her, Find A Grave Memorial# 77219347. it looks cropped with another person on the right side, that should be her husband Oliver Howard Wardlow 1912-1994. there is no memorial for him... could you check to see if you also have a photo for him, or perhaps next time you go to that cemetery check and see if that is him on the stone with her and take his photo so we can crate a memorial for him?

RE: Nellie Nelson Dearinger
Well OOPS, I thought I did, but come to find out, the Sharon I know isn't the Sharon that contacted you. I'm going to transfer her to you and then you can transfer to the lady that contacted you named Sharon. What a mess LOL. Lets just get rid of Nellie! Its your turn now ;)

Thanks for the note, Janice. I have sent the links to the page in Memorial Park Cemetery, so you can delete your page in Mount Hope for him. Let me know if there are any more things to fix.

Yep! it's me again. Thanks so much for the contact. I'll be contacting her tomorrow. Do want me to let you know if she helps me out or not. Then you can plan to help someone else & not waste time with me. Anyway Thanks again. Take care & God bless.

Hugh Shannon #70431850
Hi! Janice,
Is it possible you have a translation of his inscription from his marker. It so hard to read above the word Missouri. I have it so far as
"MISSOURI 1829 ??? HUGH SHANNON THE FOUNDER OF THIS HOMESTEAD A NEW HOME IN A NEW COUNTY." What is above this. Thank you for your time. I am only a half 5th great-grand niece to his wife Jane. Take care & God bless.

We appear to share a 5th Great Grand Father :) Greetings.
My Grandfather Harold was the son of Joseph M. Baver. Who I think was born Johannes.
My ancestry DNA shows the majority of my mothers side came from Great Britain and not Germany. I am curious to find out if there is some British Isles ancestry in the Bavers as well.
Take Care
