I'd like to support your efforts, but I'm skeptical that the memorials permanently in your "custody" is a great idea.

Can I transfer them to you with the understanding that you'll transfer them back at the end of your project or the end of the school year?

I suspect that would meet both our desires.

I thank you for sending me the info you have. However, I have all of it, as I have been researching this man since 1983. His wife is my great-great aunt.

One thing you have stated is that one of his children is adopted. I have never heard or found any documentation on this. I would be so grateful if you would tell me which one you think is adopted and what documentation you have to prove it.

Charles Bronk & William Hewitt
Thanks for the information you provided on these veterans. I have updated their bios. I also found another old news article from a Holton paper that indicated William Hewitt's wife's maiden name was Smith. Corp. Samuel Hewitt, who is also buried in Holton Cemetery was a brother of William. Keep up the good work.

William Dice Rings
Thank you for the additional information on Pvt. Rings. I wondered when I took pictures of all those military stones in Holton Cemetery, if anything else could be found about those with nothing but a name and a unit. Thank you for helping to fill in the pieces.

RE: DW Taylor
I'm sorry, I don't have any further information on him. I just happened to take a picture of the stone while looking for some others that day. I don't know if you are familiar with, but they have most of the Civil War records, including pension index cars. They do charge for the service, though. The Jackson County Historical Society may have information. Also, the caretaker of the cemetery has most of the burials on a computer in the office. It's a longshot, but they may have information. They are usually around the cemetery grounds most weekdays.

Ezra Kemp Swartz
Dear Students,

Once again I am writing to say "Thank You" to you for finding and sending me the information regarding Ezra Kemp Swartz. This data contained a wealth of information for me to use in my genealogical research of this man and his family and it has proven invaluable to me.

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all you do for us genealogists and to make sure you know how much it means to us....not just to me, but to all of those that you have helped. Keep up the great work!!

Thank you so very much for sending me the information regarding Ezra Kemp SWARTZ.

I appreciate your interest in preserving the history of Kansas, and your assistance to me in providing additional data regarding Ezra Swartz who is buried in the Mayetta Cemetery.

To a genealogist, every little bit of information regarding an ancestor is important, and we cherish these links to our ancestors.

Thank You for your help!

Grover Byron Gill
Students: I noted with interest that the coroner's report gave the location of the train/car accident as 1/4 mi. East of Holton, whereas the newspaper clipping that I had gave the location as 1 mile north. I am inclined to believe that the location 1/4 m. east is probably the accurate location, knowing the direction Grover would probably be going into Holton from his home. I have added that note to his memorial with due credit to you. Thank you again.

RE: Grover Byron Gill
Thank you. This supplements the newspaper article I have about the accident. I don't know if there is too much I can add to the memorial, but I will certainly keep it with my genealogical records.
Keep up the great work!
