Description

[edit this] Text: The records of Funk Mortuary, covering the period between April 5, 1918 and May 21, 1919. Funk Mortuary was founded in 1909 by T.D. Funk and George Shaffer. In 1911, Funk assumed full ownership; he operated the mortuary until its sale in 1953. Following a series of changes in ownership, the mortuary is today known as Warren-McElwain Mortuary and continues operations in Lawrence (Kan.). This record book contains a hand-written list of interred soldiers included in this volume and information about deceased persons prepared for burial at this mortuary.

A majority of these persons died and were interred in Douglas County (Kan.), but other records indicate deaths or interments in cities or townships in Kansas counties Wyandotte, Leavenworth, Shawnee, Miami, Chase, Jefferson, Geary, Riley, Sedgwick, Chautauqua, Sumner, Barton, Saline, Clark, Republic, Kingman, Russell, Norton, Wabaunsee, Decatur, Allen, Barber, Montgomery, Jefferson, Anderson, and Butler. Out-of-state records include persons interred in Evanston, La Grange, Great Lakes, Chicago (Ill.}; Kansas City, Walenda, St. Joseph, Bowling Green, Higginsville, Springfield, St. Louis (Mo.); Ft. Collins, Denison, Pueblo, Crawley Co., La Junta (Col.); Omaha, Lyon, Arma (Neb.); Oklahoma City, Canton, Antlers, Nawata (Ok.); San Diego (Cal.); Camp Sherman (Ohio); Ronan (Mon.); Ogden (Utah); Slandpeau (SD); Mesa (AZ); and Camp Logan (Tex.).
