Lone Jack: I have a cemetery book of the Lone Jack cemetery and would be happy to do
lookups if anyone is interested. My grandfather was born there and there
are many relations still living in that area, Lee's Summit, etc. Cemetery
book have over 801 obits. Checked on an 1895 Atlas and, at the time, Lone
Jack had a population of 111 ... no wonder they kept marrying into the same
families; not too many around to pick from. Sally Pavia,
