Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in Monrovia, Atchison County Kansas. I attended Monrovia Grade School, Atchison County Community High School in Effingham and graduated from Benedictine College. I have enjoyed a career as an art director/creative director in the Kansas City advertising community for over thirty years. My interest are Civil War history particularly the border war between Missouri and Kansas and the history of Monrovia and Atchison County Kansas.

I am currently doing research on the Nottingham, Geiger, Parker, Yocum, Bradley and Ledington families.

I have a vested interest in the Monrovia cemetery as it overlooks and adjoins my family farm. My father served on the Monrovia cemetery board for many years and my younger brothers and I mowed that cemetery for most of our teenage years.

Thanks, Steve

Margaret McCoy Bradley
Hello! In the course of researching my family I came upon this very sad story via I have a connection to Margaret Kirley McSorley (she is buried at St. Benedict's at Find A Grave Memorial# 99018196). I believe Margaret is the sister of Bridget, Patrick and Owen Kirley all from Co. Louth and residing in Doniphan Co. Kansas. A descendent of Thomas McCoy (a brother of Margaret McCoy Bradley) and I have been working together on the Kirleys. From my research you and I have a couple facts in some conflict and I wondered if you could tell me how you reached your conclusions so I can correct my information.

1. I think Mary Kirley was Margaret McCoy Bradley's first cousin, not second. My information says Patrick Kirley (Mary's dad) and Bridget Kirley McCoy O'Grady (Margaret Bradley's mom) were siblings.

2. I think James McCoy and Margaret McCoy were full siblings- their parents were Cornelius McCoy and Bridget Kirley. Cornelius died and Bridget remarried Thomas O'Grady.

If you are interested in the family tree I have put together and the records I have, I would share them with you.

Oliver Rice
I was wondering if you were related to him and what you could tell me about him. I live in Granby MO and my paternal grandfather's name was Lewis Capps who was born in 1904. I have a photo of my grandpa and his younger brother who was born in 1909 and the 3rd boy looks to be about the same age of my grandpa. On the back of the picture it says "Oliver Rice"

Celia Pearce #105306658
Hi Stephen,
Celia Pearce (Pierce) is my 3 Great Grandmother. Thank you for the wonderful job you have done with her memorial. I would love to know the resource for the information you provided especially the time he lived in Kansas, the train wreck.
I am doing some family genealogy and have been unable to locate Celia or Abial's death records. I have found a photo copy of his Probate/Will on line.

Any information you can share would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Suanne Cushman Harns

PS. I am wondering why this info is not on Abial's Memorial as it pertains mostly to his ancestry.

Thank you for posting information about my great-grandfather and relatives. It has been a great help as I begin my own research adventure. I added information on his posting from an obituary.

Request for Permission - Benjamin Snyder
Mr. Nottingham, I am the author of a website dedicated to the memory of the 16th Ohio Volunteer Infantry Civil War regiment. You have posted a photo of the gravesite of one of the 16th OVI's soldiers, Benjamin Snyder, Find A Grave Memorial# 67583496. I am asking your permission to present that photo on my website in the Laid To Rest section. My website is 100% non-commercial and for the research and enjoyment of those interested in the 16th Ohio or Civil War in general. Please let me know if it is ok to use the photo. Also, thank you for your work in documenting and posting the gravesites of our ancestors!

Stephen -- thank you so much for all the Monrovia Cemetery postings you have provided! Charles James Hipple is my great grandfather, and Samuel/Emmalina Hipple are my gg-grandparents.

I live in the KC area and plan to go to Monrovia (and Effingham) within the next couple months to visit all the family grave sites.

Thanks again!
