Edgar Eric Rux and Edith Hazel Rux (Carothers)

I have added entries for Edgar Eric Rux and Edith Hazel Rux (Carothers) at Edith is a distant cousin of mine. We share Clark and Rachel Carothers as a common ancestor. I'm always amazed at all my Carothers cousins who lived in California long before my parents moved here!

Oak Grove Cemetery - Fort Scott, Kansas

A nice photo of the Oak Grove Cemetery, in Fort Scott, Kansas, has been posted on the website.

My great grandmother Myrtle Elizabeth Herring is buried there.

Life has kept me busy and away from genealogy for a few months, but I think I'm back now!
