    • Genealogy. Rev. J Arthur Kring and his wife are buried there. Rev. Kring was first cousin to my grandfather. His parents are buried in Kansas. He also has a son buried in Fort Scott, Kansas. I wasn’t familiar with the son on my tree, Paul Kring.

      In 2014, I took a road trip to Fort Scott and visited the cemetery I asked what they could tell me about Paul. When they buried him, where he was buried, and someone paid the bill for the grave and burial. I found a death notice for Paul shortly thereafter and it was a local newspaper that mentioned his maternal grandmother announced his death. As soon as I saw the name of the grandmother, I knew who his parents were. I found an obit for Rev. Kring as well as some revival services he led around the early 1900s. I checked with the cemetery to make sure he was buried there.

      The cemetery went above and beyond. They took photos and sent me copies. The person responding to the e-mail sent me better photos a few days later with better photos and the fact that a distant cousin of Rev. Kring, Rev. Walter Kring, was also buried in the cemetery and included photos of his and his wife’s headstones. Rev. Arthur Kring was an evangelical pastor. I don’t know much about Rev. Walter Kring as he was a distant cousin from one of my ancestor’s siblings.

      The Kring line landed in south central Pennsylvania back in the mid-1750s. Since then, their descendants have spread across the U. S. I have found a Kring who lived, married, born, or died in almost every state. I may be missing Alaska, but there are rumors at least one moved there at some point.
