Second-cousins Bob Weis, Denver, left and Sue Davis, Olathe, search for the gravestone of their great-great aunt, Alice Pardee, Monday in Oak Hill Cemetery. The two genealogy enthusiasts recently found out about each other and decided to track down some of their common ancestors, several of whom are buried in Douglas County. Alice Pardee lived in Lawrence and died at age 104. The city celebrated her 100th birthday with a party in 1969.
