Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in the hills north of Winkler in rural Riley County, KS, on the farm my great grandfather homesteaded starting in 1881. I went to school at Randolph and, after living in Manhattan for about 25 years, have moved with my family back to the farm (much to the dismay of my wife).

I became interested in genealogy, because I am the last one in my branch of the family to carry on our name. I did not know if anyone else in another branch was keeping track of our lineage, so I decided I needed to lest it be lost to the ages.

A coworker told me about Find A Grave, and when I first pulled it up, I could not believe the amount of information that was available. I found it invaluable for tracking down names and dates for my family.

When my dad passed away, I guess my own mortality became apparent to me, so I got more interested in contributing information. Hopefully, long-lost relatives and future generations can use the website to help keep track of their heritage.

I am not related to some of the people for whom I have created memorials or for whose memorials I care for, so if you are related, please request a transfer. I would much rather they be cared for by a relative.

I am not one of those people who pontificates the official Find A Grave rules on which relatives can and can't be transferred. I figure it's first come first served, and you can fight it out amongst yourselves.

RE: Anna Woerman
Louisa (Lulu) was married to Frank Bergstrom. They are buried in the Fancy Creek Randolph cemetery. There was also a brother Fred who is buried in the St Peter's cemetery.

May I ask if you have a connection to our family?

Ulrich Rothlisberger
While looking for some information on family members buried in St Peters cemetery I noticed that you were look for where Ulrich Rothlisberger was buried. If I'm not mistaken he and Lidia are buried in the Clay Center cemetery.

RE: Lilburn Toburen
Ada is Lilburn's second , third or forth wife.
I do not know which number is right. Ada birth name is Dougherty, She is still living.
Thank You, I have been doing research over 40 years
and I am trying to donate it all to Find A Grave so
others will not have to do the same research I have done. I wish others that take pictures would donate
the memorials to genealogists so children can be connected to parents.

Are you a relative of Lilburn?
Lilburn was the husband of my Aunt Ada
so I guess makes him my Uncle but I am not
direct relative of his.
