|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.****

I like the positive attitude and the dedication portrayed in your bio. I hope life is going well for you. Thank you for your contributions. May your inbox be filled with warm fuzzies.
|Gloria Opseth Ryberg||Eula Mae Knop|
I am unable to connect to Eula Mae Knop buried in Johnson County Kansas by using the memorial # 26622602.
Her husband Harry is buried there also, his memorial #26622634 works. I don't know how to fix this.
I need to connect Eula with husband and with her parents #11639981 and #26622517.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice. While not closely related, these people are in my family tree so if you want to give them to me, I would be ok with that. Hope you are doing well.

Elizabeth Huffman Gray Hoyt #25980070
It would be a privilege to maintain my 3x great grandmother, Elizabeth Huffman's memorial if you would choose to transfer it to me.
I live in Washington State but most of my maternal ancestors are from Olathe Johnson KS area going back before the Civil War. I have visited three times and love the area.
Thank you for the time and effort you put in with Find A Grave, it is much appreciated. :)

|Leesa Arnes||Found Grandmother's grave|
I was just playing around and found a picture of my grandmother's grave site. Just curious how you came to this grave and took pictures...I think it's very cool.
