Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native Oregonian who moved from North-Central Kansas to the Houston area in early 2017, so I have a whole new starting place to help others with family history research! My grandmother Elsa Opal Long Vandecar (1896-1996) was the family historian, and for the last 25 years or so I've been trying to continue her legacy.

You are welcome to copy any of my gravestone photos onto other genealogy or family history websites; no need to credit me. Helping other family historians by gathering those photos is my way of paying forward all the help I've received!

You might want to add the following:
Leroy Eugene Ninemire born in Cloud Co, KS
Died in Winfield, KS
Or if you would transfer any Ninemire memorials to me this is my family.

Thank you
Ila Hittle

Removed Photos
The photos you added for C.B. and Rachael Pritchett's (memorials 77534966 and 77534884) headstone were easier to read than the ones I posted previously, so I removed mine. Thanks for adding them.

RE: Barton/Bargen
Not a problem, but what is the correct spelling of your first name? :)

Alice Sams
Sarah, thank you for your kind & generous offer of transferring Alice's memorial to me. Since I am a very distant relative & since she has 2 grown children who may someday take an interest in their ancestry, I will decline. Also, thank you for making the links & for adding her maiden name.
Most gratefully yours, :) Susan

William Grant White
I just declined your edit to remove Bill White's first wife, Clara, from his links. He married her Dec. 6, 1945, and divorced her June 20, 1957. He then married his second wife, Dolores Trowbridge,June 25, 1959. He had children from both marriages.
He was my husband's first cousin, once removed.

Anna Shara Moravek
Thanks for posting the Belleville Telescope obituary for Anna Shara Moravek. I believe, though, that the date of that obit is Jan 3, 1946, not 1945. She died in December of 1945, as indicated in the correct death date that you have listed. Thanks again for sharing the information.
