A patron called looking for the location of a Greenwood Cemetery in Stevens, Arkansas. She didn’t know if Stevens was a town or a county. The Family Search website showed a Zanetta Clementine Chapman buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Stevens, Arkansas. She died in 1924. There is no Stevens, Arkansas, but there is a Steve, Arkansas in Yell County and a Stephens, Arkansas in Ouachita County. Neither has a Greenwood Cemetery. After talking with the patron again, she said, “I don’t know that she is buried in Arkansas but I know she was born in Arkansas.” So I did a Google search of “Greenwood Cemetery Stevens County.” One of the search results items was a link to Interment.net for Greenwood Park Cemetery, Hunters, Stevens County, Washington. Buried there is Clementine Chapman who died in 1924 and Enoch Chapman who died in 1930 (Enoch was her husband). Another mystery solved!
What our patrons have to say about the Midwest Genealogy Center:
"I’ve been working on the Gray family for almost 10 years. When I decided to work on this, I went to Pendleton County, Kentucky and the local library had microfiche that gave me great information. With that information, I was able to make contact with two other people I never knew and we’re now working together to pool our information. Coming here to the Midwest Genealogy Library and attending the genealogy classes has renewed my interest, and folks like you are such a help in guiding me through the research."

"The new location is so easy to get to from Topeka. Every time we come, we find new books, more info, helpful staff, and a pleasant place to work. We’ve been coming for many years and still haven’t seen everything! It is also great to be able to get our own books and not waste time waiting for them to be delivered!"
