Bio and Links
I have been doing our family research for 35 years as well as for other people. My husband and I have traveled to many states to find records of our family and walked many cemeteries to find their graves. Our traveling is over now that my husband had kidney failue in 1911 and is now on oxygen and dialysis 3 times a week. I am now working on Ancestry to get some of the many hints that need to be put on peoples pages. I appreciate the people that have put pictures of cemeteries & grave stones on FAG, as I know it is a teadious and time consuming job. Thanks to everyone. Connie

RE: Telsie Marie Hughes
Telsie Marie was George's second wife; they had a son together George Thomas Jr. (Tommy). I think they were probably married in the mid 1960's because Tommy is around 49 now. Marie's son Lewis from her first marriage was my son's father. George and Marie are buried together in the veterans cemetery; as is customary her information is on the back of George's headstone. I don't know anything about his first marriage because he was married to Marie when I met him; except that he did have a daughter from his first marriage.

Re: Leslie Cook
I would be most glad to add his siblings to his memorial but you must have already deleted your memorial so I do not have the names. I have changed the spelling to Cook but his death certificate has Cooke. I cannot tell you if there is a gravestone. I added memorials from a cemetery book. I have photographed the oldest sections of the cemetery which was the old IOOF Cemetery. I do plan to start photographing the rest of the cemetery in late spring & summer, the cemetery has over 10,000 burials which is a pretty big task.

RE: James Warner Baxter
Go ahead and use any pictures I post. I am so proud of my family! James was so handsome and popular but had a sad ending to his life. He grew up with my mom's family as his mother died right when he was born and mom's Grandma Ada had custody of him. Have a good week!

Was she a brother of Lorenzo Dow "L.D." Lafferty buried in Alpine Cemetery, Osage County, Ks? He named a daughter Mary Jane. R.

Asberry Chapman Beam dates
Hi Connie,

I got your message questioning the death date for A. C. Beam. It appears the date of Oct 29 is certainly incorrect based on the obituary posted on his memorial. The fact that his birth year on the headstone is incorrect adds additional suspicion on the death day.

The 1860 census shows him as two years old which is supported by the obit when you calculate backwards from Oct 17, 1940. It appears the birth day of July 4 on the headstone is probably correct but not the year. The 1860 census was recorded in August, so he would have had his second birthday by then if he was born in July 1858.

I have corrected my records to show his death date as October 17, 1940. I presume the current headstone was placed quite a while after his death since it looks like a more modern design than ones from 1940.

Re: Nettie (Beam) Devers
Gravestones would have married names. Findagrave has a spot for the maiden name which is why Beam is italicized. Please read the rules, no where is it stated that females should be listed under maiden names. Personal family trees? Yes, they are listed under maiden names but not in cemeteries. It is fine if you want to use as a personal family tree but use the proper cemetery transcription (married name) with the italicized maiden name & link to their parents if they have a memorial.

Hello Connie. I uploaded a photo of Annie's headstone today. I thought you might be interested in knowing that the Coffey County Library's cemetery book for Lincoln Cemetery says her name is Dorcas Anna Baxter.
