Finding your family through cemeteries.

When looking through your family tree sometimes you run a ground. No pun intended.
Families have information that may not jive date wise with what you find.
That’s when I try to find a headstone. See if maybe they left us a clue.
I had one that was a particular mess. Some members had him being buried in Neb. and others in Kansas. We after a little digging I found he was in Kansas. Died in Nebraska and taken back to the rest of the family in Kansas. Which as I think about it, that was probably no easy task back in those days. Remember if you find some family says one thing and the other have a different version, there might be a good story there and it’s worth taking the time to find out.
