Hi Judi,

Sure hope you're still doing research on your family and are still using

I too descend from William & Margaret (ANDERSON) ROTE/ROAT.

I descend from their oldest son, George ROTE who married Catherine RISHEL. I have quite a bit of info on the ROTE family and will gladly share.

I visited the Graceland Cemetery in Lyons, KS a couple of years ago and took several pictures of gravestones. Will gladly share those, too, if you don't already have them.

Please respond directly to my personal email at

Will be anxiously awaiting your reply.

P.S. Just visited the Heston Cemetery near Havana, IL this Fall and also took several pictures. That's the cemetery where William and Margaret ROTE are buried.
