I re-did my membership with the Rutherford B Hayes library, www.rbhayes.org, recently, as I had found some interesting ‘stuff’ on their website, and I really like having access to the www.newspaperarchive.com site and also Heritage Quest, and that is included with the membership I have at that level.
Today, I was searching NewspaperArchive.com website for my uncle, Frank Stocking, and found a copy of my Aunt Peggy’s from the Hutchinson News digitized on the NewspaperArchive.com website. And it never would have occurred to me to look at the Hutchinson News microfilms!! Eureka! I wasn’t doing genealogy when my lovely Aunt Peggy passed away, and so I had not saved it!
It was such a shock when Aunt Peggy died. We knew she had a heart condition, but still, it was a shock. My daughter had been born three weeks before, and we were all looking forward to visiting with Peggy’s brother and his wife when they came to visit in a few weeks, but that wasn’t to be.
I was still off work on maternity leave when we traveled to the funeral, and I took my 2 1/2 year old son and three-week-old daughter with Mom and I to her service.
Aunt Peggy was a ‘hoot.’ She also had a beautiful smile, a heart of gold, and an infectious laugh! She was always cracking jokes, and I miss her.

Some time back I posted a Tombstone Tuesday photograph of Cora Pauline Walter’s tombstone.
Always curious, I did a little preliminary research at the Sumner County History and Genealogy Center, and when I didn’t find something easily, stopped, because she isn’t family.
But recently I was at the Osborne Cemetery, near Mayfield, Kansas in Sumner County, and another Walter’s tombstone caught my eye and my imagination. I wonder if they are related? Married? Siblings?
On the Stone:
Donovan L. Walters, Sr.
S Sgt Army Air Forces
World War II
March 16, 1910 (cross) Sept 24, 1972
This tombstone is located just a few feet from Cora Pauline’s stone. There is just one stone in between the two, which leads me to believe that research will show that there is some relationship between the two.

This tombstone for George T. Hill is located between my father’s tombstone, and my mother’s great uncle’s tombstone, Evan Jones, in the Osborne Cemetery, Sumner County, Mayfield, Kansas.
On the Stone:
C. E. & M. S. Hill
Died Sept 6, 1884
Aged 10 Ms, 29 Ds

If we had the name of the person who purchased the plot…
If we had the name of the person who purchased the plot, we might have many clues to our possible relationship, but the sexton who took care of the cemetery records (many years ago) had a house fire, and all the old records were destroyed, and though they were recreated as best possible, the older records aren’t 100% accurate.
My mother believes that this young person is related to our family but she does not know how. So far, I’ve found no Hill’s in our family tree, outside of my dad’s sister’s husband, and that is a much later era.
I have to wonder if the young person that she was told was related was the young person just to the side of George, last week’s post, Myrtle Jones. That seems much more likely.
