Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a volunteer for the Cherokee County Kansas Genealogical-Historical Society since 1980. ( As I am typing obit cards from old county newspaper death notices and obituaries I check to see if a tombstone exists in the cemetery mentioned in the obit. If not I add the names and dates as they are given. (Some information may be from Missouri death records). I hope this helps anyone who has been unable to find where their ancestor is buried. I am happy to transfer any memorial I have added to anyone who has an interest in that person.
My own family names are Keely, Prigmore, King (Koenig), Green, Gasaway, Cooksey, McCarty, Schmitt, Bera, Ziegler, and James.

So sorry about the first message. Please disregard it. Don't know what I was trying to do there. This is the correct # for my Aunt. If possible I would like it to be transferred to me.
Thanks again,
Kathy Shaw

Dear Marilyn,
Just a note to say thank you for your volunteer service. I just got back involved a week ago chasing ancestry and one day after my post on Oklahoma Genealogical Society a lovely lady led me to my biological grandmother Chapman and ggrandmother Mary V Shoemaker. Yesterday a gentleman on Ancestry gave me the links that brought me here. Now I have answers on biological ggrandfather and great uncles. All you incredible volunteers I hope realize the amazing work you do brings such joy in helping people you don't know to resolve questions about our ancestors.
There will lots of crowns for many of you when you get to heaven, but in the meantime thank you, thank you. Marianne Rugeley

Libbie Alma (Krudwig) Gavin
Do you happen to have a copy of the Obit for Libbie Alma Gavin? I have a copy of her death cert, but not the obit. According to my father she died from complications due to child birth with what would have been her 4th child. Not sure how far along she might have been. According to the death cert she died from septicemia from a miscarriage. If you have any other info or anything relating to her or her family I would greatly appreciate it.
