I am trying to find information on my father's family line. I know that his
father's name was Gene Clark. He married Virginia Moore. My father's name is
Kervin Dean Clark he also has a twin brother named Kevin Gene Clark.
My father married my mother veronica Villalva. I believe all these marriages
took place in Finney County KS. I was hoping to find the names and
birthplaces of Gene's parents and maybe their parents as Well. I do know
that my grandfather Gene is buried in the cemetery in Garden City out on the
highway by Towns Riverview. Any and all help would be very helpful.

I am looking for the name of someone buried at Valley View Cemetery. I am
wondering if the name of the cemetery has changed. My mother, Gladys Hard is
buried there, then an unused space for my father, next to him is Alga Hard.
I believe the person I am trying to track is buried either right next to
Alga or very close to her. The last name is Brown. the wife perhaps Florence
died in approx. 1891 her husband later.

I am trying to locate the Naturalization Records for what I believe to be my
great-grandfather, Charles M. White, age 47, listed on "First Naturalization
Record A, Finney County KS, Intentions" on Sept, 1887. I recently
ordered this document by Frances (Wheller) Embree, Garden City KS through
our local library but it lists only the page number, name , age, country,
and year. I also found a C. White on the 1880 Douglas County , Nebraska
Census, but the family is listed only by their fist initials (with the
exception of a child, "Alexander" who would possibly be my grandfather).
Once I am certain that this Charles M. White is my
great-grand father, I wish to travel to Kansas and Nebraska to do additional

My wife's great grandfather, J. H. Burnside is mentioned in the on-line
history of Finney County as being one of the larger cattle ranchers in the
late 1800's. We are looking fro any information , a gravesite, some relation
still in the county, or just anything about him and his family. We have in
our possession an engraved cup from his Civil War reunion that well be 100
years old this September. The cup was engraved to his daughter Emma who when
married became a Clark. He fought in an Indiana Regiment and moved to KS
after the war. This tells us he passed away after 1903, but other than his
unit's history. My wife has a photo of J. H. and his wife, (who's name we do
not know), we have found very little else.

Solomon Reep Jr. He lived in Garden City KS. He had a shoe repair shop
