Finished the Grace Cemetery in McDonald, Kansas just in time for their 125th birthday. Still missing a few obituaries but someone recently found some old newspapers so I'm hoping they get them on microfilm so I can look at them.

I am now working on the St Francis Cemetery and the Bird City Cemetery. As soon as we get some warmer weather, I am going there to take more pictures.

Anyone can use my photos for the geneology research. Please credit me for the picture, but you do not need special permission.

If anyone wants any of the memorial that I have posted, just send me a message. I will be happy to transfer memorials if they are not my immediate family.

Working on my family trees since 1976.

When my brother passed away in March of 2010, I wanted to do some kind of volunteer work in his honor. Since he is buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery, I became a volunteer for that cemetery. However, I also wanted to do the photos of my family that have passed on. Since my husband and I are retired, we began stopping at many little cemeteries and taking pictures of tombstones and listing them on the web site.

Thanks to everyone for their nice responses for the pictures I take.

Can you please help me clear this confusing on my family tree. David Ramsey Reneau, shows john fleming and Charles Sumner are brothers, but I also found and not clear on it that David and John are brothers. I cant seem to get past my Grandfathers parents and his siblings. My grandfather is Charles Elbert Reneau Sr. born 1901, died 1966 in California. Can you help with this confusion? thank you Denise Reneau,grand daughter of Charles Elbert Reneau Sr. aka Magtag

Thank you so very much for taking this lovely photo. You have a talent with a camera. There are other Schwindt's in the same cemetery. If the weather holds and you get back out there, please take photos of them as well. My allotment for the week is used for this week.

Thank you so very much.

RE: Alfred A Wood #88456257
I suppose you read his wifes obituary. That is all i know about Alfred. When i enter stones i find obituaries and then also try to find the spouse. This has to be her husband but i have no other information on him. Sorry. Geo
