Trip to Riley, Kans.

29 Apr

It’s been a while since I have posted anything of note.

Thought I would share some photographs of a trip to Riley, Kansas, from last September. One of my dear cousins, Charlotte, lives in Riley, and is always willing to share photographs and documents with me.

We took the opportunity to visit some new cemeteries this trip, including one in Manhattan, and a couple much further northwest of there where some of the Swart aunts and uncles are buried.

Here’s a photograph of me standing at the grave of my great-great-great uncle, Wilhelm Hinderks Swart. He was the first Swart to emigrate from Germany in 1867.
