Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up 4 miles south of Whiting, Kansas, in Jackson County, Straight Creek Township, and still live in the area. I am a retired State of Kansas employee and a caregiver for my mother, who lives with me.

I am working to add local graves, especially my hometown, and linking them to their families using online newspaper archives, and census and other records. My mother, age 92, is also a great resource, as she has lived in the Whiting community all of her life.

I strive to post colorful, quality photos to reflect the best possible image of each grave.

Because this is a searchable database, I try to limit what info I post on surviving family members, both in headstone photos and in obituaries.

It's a very nice memorial. Thank you for putting in the link to her uncle. Do you know what happened to her mother?

RE: Clayton Bontrager grave photo
I appreciate the effort you put into photographing and posting the picture of the gravestone of Doris and Clayton Bontrager (Burial at Holton Cemetery,
Holton, Jackson County, Kansas, USA, Plot: Section JJ). It is a well-focused picture with exceptional detail.

We would prefer to keep the snapshot taken by their grandson from the late afternoon of Doris's visitation posted; it is a picture she had requested, and includes the last floral she had placed on Clayton's grave. It is an important picture for several members of the family

Thank you for sharing John Butters obituary. He is a relative of my wife and she was thrilled. We'll pass the favor on.

Can you tell me the source of the birth date edit you submitted? Since the date isn't on her gravestone, only her death date and age at time of death, I would like to add the verification. Thanks.

I had 5 pictures posted and can't post them all on the other site. It already has 2 pics of the headstones. I put 3 pictures there. The duplication has been deleted.
