Talk20 Hutch

I'm participating in Talk20 in a couple of weeks. My slide deadline is today and I'm wondering how I can share about my cemetery walks in not only 20 slides, but 20 seconds per slide. Wish me luck!

A family tree on Ancestry.com lists her as Elizabeth Lillie, daughter of Thomas and Mary Cunningham Wenzler.

Beautiful symbolism in the rocks, cross and scroll.

Ted Wallace

Ted Wallace, an inmate of the state reformatory died suddenly today. 

The cause of his death was not known. He was received from Coffey County Nov. 25, last for grand larceny. Officials of the institution are endeavoring to get in touch with relatives. He is believed to have a mother living in San Francisco.

In an attempt by person(s) unknown to keep the simple stones marked 2 now have Ted's name on them at the same Reformatory Cemetery on the present day prison. How sad that no family was found or claimed his body.
