Find A Grave ID


I've been researching my family history for over 45 years and since I have no children to leave my work to I'm trying to share it with as many people as I can so it won't be lost. I have a great love for my ancestors and was blessed to know three of my great-grandmothers. One of my favorite places to go is the cemetery where most of my father's family is buried. I can stand in between two rows of graves and be surrounded by four generations. When my husband and I travel we plan our trips around cemeteries we want to visit. He brings a big stick to beat the bushes and tall grass with and I bring a camera so I can take pictures. Two of our most memorable trips resulted in us standing at the graves of two of my GGG-grandmothers, Elizabeth Spoor Bliss and Electa Buck Chapman, in small cemeteries in western Kansas. It was awesome to think of how far they had both traveled in their lifetime and the things they went through that made it possible for me to be there.
