Bio Photo Hello,
My name is Joe Chrisman, I have been the Cemetery Sexton for the City of Winfield for 19 years and a genealogy buff for over 30 years.

I would be glad to transfer any memorial I have added, as long as the person is not related to me.

My Chrisman line started in Virginia, moving into Kentucky and arriving in Kansas in 1884. My 6th Great Grandfather Jacob Chrisman and 7th Great Grandfather Jost Hite, were the focus on the television series "Who Do You Think You Are?", Tim McGraw episode. What a thrill it was to see my family genealogy on TV!

I am a amature Civil War researcher and manage the Facebook page "Civil War Veterans Buried in Winfield Kansas Cemeteries". Please check it out and "Like" the page as well.

I also interested in "Co. H, 1st Kentucky Cavalry" history. My GG Grandfather Isaac "Ike" Chrisman was wounded 19 January, 1862 at the Battle of Mill Springs. Some say it was Ike Chrisman that fired the fatal shot that killed General Felix Kirk Zollicoffer. Documentation of this can be found in "A Boys Story of the Battle of Fishing Creek Kentucky" by John Worth Simpson.

HI! I ran across Your GG Grandfather's memorial & saw where you had left a message. Since his middle name was Taliaferro I am guessing his Mother or possibly Grandmother was a Taliaferro?

Have you done any further research on your Taliaferro line (if you are related to the Taliaferro's)? My 8th grandmother was Elizabeth Taliaferro-Stribling (61182074). She was of Italian ancestry.

Kindest Regards,

Sorry, to report John Brady has no individual marker or notation, but his family does. I'll add a photo of his burial plot to his memorial.

Thank you so much for your comment on Joe Holtby's memorial! I have been trying to find info on him for years and have just now succeeded on FindAGrave. Your comment touched me. I was raised in the Winfield/Ark City areas and now reside in Illinois.
