Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family research since the late 1970's. I have been associated with the Jefferson County (KS) Genealogical Society, being the organizing President and since served in that capacity two more times. I live in Winchester, Kansas. My wife, Marie and I have been married 64 years. We have four living children, 11 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. My family research interests are many, but especially Riley, Nettleton, Curry and Fulton. We have many ancestors buried in Atchison and Jefferson Counties, Kansas. In addition, I have served the United Methodist Church as organist for the past 50 years and have served the Winchester and Jefferson County North Schools as statistician for over 60 years. I was the Director of the Winchester Public Library at the time the present building was constructed.

Please contact me if you find a direct relative's memorial I manage, and would like to have the memorial transferred. Please include your Find a Grave ID # with any requests. If you find any errors or wish to have me add additional information to a memorial, please let me know.

Directory for Mt Vernon Cemetery near Atchison
I noticed you had taken a few pictures in the Mt. Vernon Cemetery. One (Welsh) was near my wife's Grandfather's headstone (Andrews).

I can't seem to find a directory of plots for that cemetery. Are you aware if there is one on site if not online? We are planning to drive through the area in a couple of weeks while traveling to Southern Missouri from Montana and will stop by to find her Grandfather's grave. Hoping that her Grandmother is next to him though I can't find a record of her passing in the Atchison Library list I came across. Her Grandfather is listed twice for some reason though.

The Chales O Baker #3289915 linked to Mary Ann Baker Chrisman is not the correct father. Her father is Charles but not this one. Check the dates. She was born before this one was born. HER father was born in about 1808-1809. ALL the children listed belong to the other Charles born circa 1808 and Melinda Higginbotham.

RE: Korbs
How kind! I do have two, in this same family system.... I finally realized that Lawrence's paper is not scanned into for the early '40's so I can't find their obits:
There seem to be some missing family fathers in both sides of this family which complicates things. I don't know if you have access to obits or not; either way, thank you so much. Becky

restore spouse link
Hi Raymond,

Thank you for adding the father and mother links to Charles Burton Miller's memorial page (87425766) a few minutes ago. I must have accidentally cleared the spouse link, because it is gone now. With my apologies, would you please restore the spouse link also. His wife was Elizabeth Culver Miller (24692048). Thank you so much.

Charles was my 2nd great grandfather.

Herman Eggert's birth and death dates
What are the sources for the birth and death dates given for Herman Eggert, Memorial #96709820? He was my grandmother's father. My grandmother was Fannie Mae Eggert. I am researching this branch of my family tree. Thank-you!

One of your photos shows on Lonnie Jeanette Hemphill, memorial # 173230033. That is not the correct photo, would you please remove it? The photo was entered 6/20/2013 the memorial was enter 11/27/2016. I believe there must have been a glitch at some point to cause the error. Thank you.
