Is there a local graver that can suggest a time or times and location to meet?  Does the cemetery need some trimming, and if so, has the City or Cemetery Board granted permission?

Hi DSH ... I am definitely going to go to Oak Grove on Friday, the 7th.  I have spent a few hours on this past Thursday and Friday at the Wyandotte County Museum.  The Manager, Trish and her Assistant, Jeff have been extremely helpful.  They both know that I'm going to be out there and Jeff said this morning that he would call and make sure that the cemetery was mowed.  When I originally got on Find A Grave, there were 106 unfulfilled requests, now I believe there are 118.  I printed out a list of the 106 and have each one that I could find in the cemetery books marked on a map to try to make it easier to find the headstones.  Yes, I'm a bit OCD ... lol.  I would love the help, if you're able to come.  I'll be there Friday and go back Saturday, if need be.  Liz Christensen

Just to let you know that I've updated my list and will have maps of each grave location that I can find in the Oak Grove Cemetery book at the Wyandotte County Museum.

ahutchins, we decided not to go today, good thing because I woke up this morning with a bad headache and had to change my other plans for today. However, I will be there Tomorrow with a couple other people. Let me know if you would like to join us. I will check this page in about 5 hours, or when I get a response notification.

Liz, I wanted to let you know that, after you left yesterday, I definitely found two of the ones I had remaining  and good possibilities for 2 more.  I have several photos for all of those.  Also, I found one more that was on the list of photo requests while I was walking back to my car, and wondered if you or Kim found it.

Kewl, Mike.  Was it Chatworthy?  That one was right on the road on the way to your car.  Glad you got it, because I'm having trouble pulling the photos that I took off my phone.  More help will be good today.  See you at 1p,  Hope you're feeling better today.

Liz, I'm Going back to Oak Grove today to retake photos for McCleary, Speck and Zigler because the lighting was terrible When I looked at the photos after I imported them to my laptop. Hope they turn out better. Afterwards, I'm going to try again to go to St. Marys, KS.  It was raining most of the day from Topeka West, and with the rain here, I thought I better not get wet. I will let you know how it goes.  Mike
