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


  1. What a good obituary she had - with details about her early life and about her character too. And yours is a nice post illustrating what great help genealogy volunteers on the web are to us all.
