I hope you all have been watching the NBC program "Who Do You Think You
Are?" now in it's second season. It's on Friday nights at 8p.m. Eastern/7
p.m. Central time. I have missed both programs on Friday nights but have
been able to watch the episodes in their entirety at NBC.com. The first
episode covered Vanessa Williams and the second covered country singer Tim
McGraw. Interestingly Tim's research brought him here to Kansas City near where
I live, where there are a number of wonderful genealogy libraries. This
program may help you in your research by giving you some ideas about where
to go next in your research. For me, it has brought a spark back to my own
family research that I hadn't touched in a few years. Makes you want to
get out there and dig in again. Be sure to go and watch the episodes on
NBC.com and watch the upcoming episodes on Friday nights. Some of the
celebrities they will be covering are Ashley Judd, Kim Catrall, Lionel Ritchie,
Gweneth Paltrow and more. Enjoy! I know that I sure am!
I am looking for obituararies for two different men:
John Schoening (Shoning or Schoning) died October 9, 1918 in Denison
and August Schoening (Shoning or Schoning) died August 27, 1921 in
California, but buried in Crawford County as he was from Manning.
Do you know where I can start?
Thanks for any help. Mary Klauer
That is interesting. Please let me know what the stuff is so that I
can let my Geneaolgy Society know here in California.

There is a Valley View Cemetary outside of Dunlap that we visited last
summer. We had to have the farmer that lived on the land where the cemetary
is take us up to the cemetary in a 4 wheel drive - through his livestock,
etc. I don't remember any Marshall's there but it was starting to rain so
we had to leave and didn't have time to look around a lot. It is a very
cemetary and hasn't been used in a long time. Also, the main cemetary
in Dunlap (Pleasant Hill) has a white wooden box at the entrance and there
is a binder with the names of those buried there and the ID to find the
right plot. I don't know if you can access the list of burials online. We
found many of our relatives buried there, at Pleasant Hill, and in the late
1800's. Hopefully most cemetaries use some kind of reference. There is a
cemetary outside of Vail that is a good sized cemetary and is just outside
of town and I forget the name. I have not been to the Denison cemetary
I recall. My gr gr gr grandfather was Cornelius Dunham, the first white
settler in Crawford county, His obituary also says he died in Crawford
County but he was buried outside of Dunlap which is in Harrison County, at
the old Valley View Cemetary.
I wish you well on your journey to find your 3rd Great Grandparents.
