Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been collecting family history for the last 35 years. My husband and I have deep Kansas roots. His are in Ottawa, Lincoln, and Cloud counties; mine are in Wabaunsee, Pottawatomie, Shawnee, and Crawford counties. Our people have been in this state since 1857, and I find more little items about their everyday lives as I read the old weekly newspapers on microfilm at the Kansas Historical Society's archives in Topeka.
I post family trees at Rootsweb and Ancestry, and post obits on the surname pages at Rootsweb if I don't know the cemetery where the burial is.

I'm currently working on four projects:
1. Working with others to photograph Mount Hope Cemetery, one of the large city cemeteries in Topeka, Kansas.
2. Reading my way through the Cloud County, Kansas, Glasco Sun, sharing obits as I find them. Most connect to one of my husband's family lines.
3. Verifying burials in Lynn Creek Cemetery, near Berryton.
4. Reading old issues of the Cherokee Sentinel, Crawford County, adding obits to the Cherokee cemetery.

NOTE: If you would like me to look for additional information on burials in Mount Hope or Auburn cemeteries in Topeka, Lynn Creek Cemetery in Berryton, or Cherokee Cemetery in Crawford County, KS, please let me know via the edit tab on the page.

RE: Clyde Rosebaugh
Thanks Cheryl
I'm still going through the obits that TGS wants to get rid of since the library has them. But this is much easier to have it here at home where I can work when I have time.
