Topic: Burial Place of Ida Goddard
From: Billy Walker
Date: Friday, December 31, 1999 10:09 AM

My Great Grandmother, Ida Goddard, is buried "somewhere" in Bourbon County. No one in my family knows where. There is a family tradition that she is buried in or near Garland, and that she probably died late 1918 (perhaps in connection with the flu epidemic). She would not have been an old woman at the time. She was married to Albert Edward Goddard who is buried in Wichita, and who died 1951. I am still getting my feet wet with Bourbon County (am experienced researcher, just don't know Bourbon County). Where could I begin with this one?
