Thank you for all the photos! I thought it was interesting that George Agler Eberly's military memorial has the wrong year. I pulled his application for the headstone and it has the correct death year of 1958 on it but the application wasn't received until 1961. Obviously the engraver just put the current year (1961) rather than the correct year (1958). I'm surprised the family didn't request it be remade.

|Jim Childers||RE: Susan Fandrich|
I knew Susie, Marge and Lawrence when they all lived here. Marge is a sweetheart. Her son, Donnie is buried there also. He was originally buried in the Nimrod cemetery. But after Susie's accident they had her buried there and came back and got Donnie also. Donnie died in an accident too, I think it involved a motorcycle if I remember right. Lawrence was a great horse shoe player, had quite a reputation here. (Even on his stone, lol) Susie was a very beautiful woman. Everyone thought she could have been a great model if she had gone for it, but wasn't interested I guess. She had the body and the brains and could have been very successful.
After she married Fandrich (First husband was Milbradt) she kind of went off the radar. He got her to move away with him down to Iowa and we didn't see much of her after that. It was kind of the general opinion that he was a little jealous of her closeness of her friends here. Everyone loved her and made over her, and we think he just wanted away from it.
When they had her funeral down there, it was packed with people from Sebeka and Nimrod.
I'll see if I can find an obit or write up of the accident in the local paper to post to her memorial.

Thanks, Brad, for the newer photo for Mr. Jorgenson. I noticed the older one disappeared. What a relief!
Hope you're having a wonderful summer. I am so grateful for all the photos you've done at Bluff View and other cemeteries. Linda

See Brad this is why you make the big Bucks you know all the ins and outs and nicknames of these cemeterys. I found that headstone info and assumed that since hilltop in Dakota county was the only hilltop listed in Nebraska must be the place. I assumed it might be a neighboring county but never checked. thanks for keeping me honest . take care. Loren

Again thank you so much for all you have done.

|Rhonda Criddle||Gibbs' Family Cemetery|
I am looking for information on this cemetery. My Grandpa Merle Gibbs grew up on this farm. He has since passed, so I can't ask him. I did however, ask the oldest cousin and he didn't know about it. How was this cemetery even discovered? Are there headstones? I know the area fairly well and my son and I would like to go check it out.

|LFAmes1008||RE: Margaret Taylor|
I am thrilled to see you are working on Bluff View. I found an old list at the downtown library and copied it and periodically I add names (it was from the WPA). The list is sparse as far as information, so additional information is always appreciated (by me, at least). Mitchell Morse, sexton, has original records for the cemeteries in Vermillion Work 605-677-7852; Home 605-624-9330. Also Cleo Erickson, Clay County Historic Found., has a back-up file.
No, I'm not in the area - down here in GA enjoying what feels like a little spring weather also, though I know we will have a couple more good cold spells.
Happy 2012. Again, thanks! Linda

Yes, Brad, I did receive the deed and appreciate it so very much!!
My apologies for not getting a note to you before. I've been rather overwhelmed preparing the watercolors of Frank (my husband) for a gallery. I spent all last week setting up a website for his work (I'm not a computer geek). Address is www.franktuningwatercolors if you want to peek.
