Courser Funeral Home is no longer in operation. I called one of the
"other" funeral homes in town and they nicely told me that they thought
that the Irvin-Parkview Funeral Home has the Courser records. You could
verify that with Irvin's phone number (785/537-2110) or their address (1317
Poyntz Ave., Manhattan, KS 66502). Dennis and Arlene Irvin have that
funeral home now.
Fort Riley is about 8 miles from Manhattan and adjacent to Junction City,
KS. I would think Fort Riley itself would have burial records. You might
try the Fort Riley Information number during the week (785/239-3911). I
tried and the person on duty for the weekend didn't have that information
available. There is a Geary County Historical Society (Junction City) with
genealogy information - I do not know if they have a web site. The Riley
County Genealogy Society (Manhattan) has a web site www.rileycgs.com As a
member, I do not know what they have on Ft. Riley because I have no family
I know what it is like to do out of state research. Good luck!
