Bio and Links
I am a lifetime resident of Hiawatha, Brown County, Kansas. I have been working on my family genealogy since 2002, and my husband's family since 2006.

A lot of the photos that I upload to Find a Grave I take time to post some additional information, like the location within the cemetery, or other things that I feel might be of interest to family members who can not make the trip themselves, or that could help them locate the stones if they do make the trip. I have also started going back and adding death notices and obits to some of my pages in Brown County cemeteries as I have time. On pages that I do not manage, but have posted the headstone pictures, I have been adding the information in the comments section beneath the picture. So please click on any photo that I have uploaded and scroll down to the bottom to see if there is any additional information for you.


"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."

Alvah Eisenbise
Hi Paula,
You posted some great headstone photos to Alva H. Eisenbise in Sabetha Cemetery.
That memorial is a duplicate and the name spelled incorrectly.
Would you mind reposting to Alvah Newton Eisenbise

thank you

RE: Daniel Allard
Thanks, Paula! I have an idea who provided you with the original links... no problem. I get editing errors, too, and probably (maybe) even make my own mistakes on occasion. Any documentation or justification provided was just sent to support my suggestion in the absence of a citation. We're in this together, and I appreciate your help.

Seth's first name was Elijah. He never used it but that was his given first name.

RE: Seth Barnum
Thank you for being so prompt with your replies and also taking care of this. I will continue to search but they passed in PA and so far I have not found the correct cemetery. Also many times the cemetery has disappeared. It is my understanding that in some states especially in the 1800's cemeteries were not protected and people could buy the land and just plow the cemetery without moving the graves. A very sad commentary on human behavior

Seth is my Great Great Grandfather and I have a list of his 13 children that need to be added to his Bio. I am a Whaley-Barnum on my Grandmother's side.

RE: What do I need to do reply#2
No, wait. What I'm not able to do is add Thomas D.'s parents. John Ten Eyck #20472076 and wife Louisa #96317927. Sorry that I'm so easily confused, making it hard for you to be able to help me!
