|Bio and Links|
My name is Michelle Renee "Shelley" (Latey) Broyles. I am the mother of three children and Oma of three. I graduated from The University of Kansas in May with degrees in Applied Behavioral Science and Psychology. I have been researching my family for 18+ years and put as much time as I can into the hobby. My husband, Dan, jokes that my idea of a good vacation is being in a cemetery, which isn't far from the truth. Everywhere I travel I try to stop and take pictures of cemeteries in hopes that someone will be helped in finding family members. I live in Johnson Co., Kansas, so if I can be of help please contact me and let me know. Happy hunting everyone!|
I get a lot of requests. Please be as patient as you can. I promise I will get to them. I am not hard-nosed as some contributors are and will be happy to transfer memorials if they are in your family lines and not mine (LATEY-FOX or BROYLES-LONG lines). Also, when communicating remember that "you get more with honey than with vinegar." Thank you everyone!
OH, one more thing, I have the sexton records for the Olathe Cemetery up to, I believe, 2006. I have yet to get them all up. I have taken all the photographs of tombstones if there is one. I am still working on getting all of those up. Let me know if you are wondering about someone and I will look them up for you.
PLEASE, IF YOU HAVE A REQUEST FOR A TRANSFER OR MEMORIAL CORRECTION DO IT FROM THE MEMORIAL **DON'T PLACE IT IN MY MESSAGES**
Only leave messages if you are thanking me, or are, or think you are, related. As I go through my messages I delete them, so that I know that I have responded or read them. Please know that I see and appreciate every one of them! :)
**** Sometimes life happens, and it is happening to me right now. I am having some very serious health issues that may result in brain surgery.
Please be as patient as you can. I know some of you have been waiting months for a response. I am not ignoring you. I am starting to work through some 500+ requests now.
I see that some of you have gone through administration, which is fine, but please don't be threatening, or passive aggressive. I am a real person, with real feelings, and with a real life. I am not retired and don't have a lot of time on my hands. I love this work and love you all for the wonderful work you are doing.****

Please let me whenever you have the time.

|Eleanor Morris||Memorial 23242651|
Memorial is for Isabella Martha "Belle" Ferguson Boon Fergus. She had two husbands but NO children. The child listed belongs to William Boon and his first Wife, Mary Fergus. Would you delete it from her memorial. Thanks for your help.
|Anita Hines||Allie Henry - transfer request|
Please transfer the above memorial to me. Allie is my Aunt. Thank you.
|Chris Walker||P.A. Moore|
I hope you are doing well physically and that you're able to do the work you enjoy so much. I have a minor name addition for your memorial on "P.A. Moore," at the Union Cemetery in Shawnee. His name was Preston A. Moore, and as his stone indicates, he was a member of Company B, 33rd Indiana Infantry during the Civil War. With his full name on there, it will make it easier for relatives or researchers to find him. Thanks so much!
Dr. Chris Walker

I have a correction request for you that is very important to me but am setting it aside for the moment.
I am so very moved by your situation and in spite of your extermely serious health issues, just how unselfish you are in your current condition.
I am fast approaching 80 and am continously impressed my the kindness and consideration shown by young folks such as yourself.
I have said a prayer for you this very minute.
Thank you dear young lady for all you've already done and what you continue to do,

Are you a relative? Mary and Lawrence went to live with my great great Aunt and Uncle in Sunbeam Mercer County Illinois. Is there. Pic of her tombstone. Sure would like the sexton records or any records about her ab Obit? Take your time not in a hurry. Her sister was Virginia Pearl Cross Speer. Her sister went by Pearl.
