Tombstone Tuesday My Great Great Grandparents Gravestone Flavious and Anne Millsap in Kansas

This is the gravestone of my great great grandparents Anne (Woodmansee) and Flavious Millsap.

I knew about them and had a picture of both of them thanks to http://www.ancestry.com/ . I even now have a copy of Anne's obituary thanks to searching the Internet . You can read the obituary and more about her at http://www.myfamilyrootsrundeep.blogspot.com/ .
My next search was to try and find her and my great great grandfather gravestone.
I went to http://www.findagrave.com/ . First I searched Kansas for Anne Millsap nothing found. Next search was Flavious once again nothing found. Last searched just the last name of Millsap in Kansas and found a page of Millsaps buried in the Syracuse Cemetery in Syracuse, Kansas. Flavious and Anne's tombstone is identified by F. A. and Annie.
Now I have their gravestone and know that some one called her Annie. They are buried side by side in the Syracuse Cemetery, Syracuse, Kansas.
I find it such a gift that someone has taken a picture of their tombstone in Kansas and I can view a picture of it sitting here at home in Texas.
Thank You For Stopping By... Hope You Stop By Again ... Grace

Tombstone Tuesday Adam and Rachel Zion My Great Grandparents

Today for Tombstone Tuesday I am sharing the gravestone of one of my great grand parents

This is Johnathan Adam and Rachel Ann Millsap Zion

Johnathan was born September 29, 1861 and died April 07, 1927

Rachel was born 1863. I have her birth date as April 19, 1862 but gravestone says 1863 which is

probably correct. Need to check on that further. She died May 13, 1945.

They are buried in Craig Colorado at the Fairview Cemetery.
Rest in peace grandpa and grandma.
