Many Thanks !

Re: Gideon & Sarah Wright

You're an angel. I'm so happy to maintain these memorials (mom's side of family). It took me four years just to find where hey died and were buried, as they had lived in Peoria, IL in their latter years with children, and fell off of the planet after that - to find them in Nebraska was a surprise. My first clue as to their location was an old news article about Gideon visiting his brother in Indiana, which mentioned he was living in Nebraska. After that I found cemetery records, etc..... This family tree stuff is fun, ain't it?

Ben & Eliz Patterson
I notice that you have documented a Benjamin and Elizabeth Patterson in Ulysses Cemetery in Butler County Nebraska.

Am I to understand that they have no stones and no dates? How do you document them?

I am looking for a Benjamin and Elizabeth and have been expecting to find them in Farnam or Orafino, but have not had any success. Their son William Buchanan Patterson and wife are in the Farnam location.

Benjamin would be about 1820 - 1886
Elizabeth would be about 1812 - 1895

Thanks for the work you are doing.

Hannas family
I found 2 Hanna's that were killed in World War II and am trying to link them together. Both are from York Nebraska. Bryce E. Hanna and James R Hanna. I found out James is the son of a Dr. Edwin Hanna but so far I don't know the parents of Bryce. Thanks for anything you can do Loren.

John Chester Sandall
First of All thanks for the Photos. I am still trying to figure this one out. There is a John Chester Sandall from York killed in World War 1(1918) and we have another John Chester Sandall also from York killed in World War II(1944). I am still not sure how they are related . scratching my head. Loren

Louisa Phelps Wattles
Louisa (memorial #122523931) was the eldest sister of my great grandfather, Fred Phelps. She actually died in Anacortes, Skagit County, Washington. Her husband Elisha Wattles died when they were living in Beaver Crossing, so I guess that's why she was buried there. Washington records show her name as Lovisa Malinda Wattles. ther family trees show her as Louisa Maranda, and I can find censuses with Louisa, others with Lovisa, so I don't know which is correct. I would like you to link her memorial to those of her mother, Sarah C. Smith (married name at death; Michael), memorial #116188381, and her father, John W. Phelps, memorial #49134268. Louisa was the oldest of 8 children of John and Sarah. So far, I've found 4 on find-a-grave, plus I've added Fred, who was my direct ancestor. For any more details, contact me at

Oh thank you so much!!

RE: family information
Thank you so much. The name on the stone is oliver Wendell Albee but all of our Records show Oliver Wendell Allbee. From the research I have done, it seems as though some of the family may have started changing the spelling somewhere along the way, but I am not sure if he was one of them. The birth year of 1910 matches, but other than that, the only thing I know for sure is he was born in Centralia Illinois. Thank you so much for your help.

family information
Hello, I am searching for information on my mothers biological family. She was adopted out when she was 5. I have recently found a picture of a headstone on your site that I believe to be her biological father, but the last name is misspelled with one L instead of two. Is there any way you can help me figure out if this is him or not? Any information you would be able to give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

RE: Eliza/Elizabeth Proudfit
There are several older cemeteries around Virden, I will try and look in some cemetery books we have at the Historical Society and see if I find her name anywhere. Will let you know if I do.

Regarding Martha F. Withers in Ulysses Cemetery: I would like to know if your Find A Grave friends can provide additional information about Martha Withers and her family. She may have lived with my mother's relatives on her way to Nebraska from Missouri. Thank you!

Thanks for the Photos!
Wow! What a quick turnaround and excellent hi-res photos to boot!

I greatly appreciate your efforts and taking the time to capture the photos of both Jeremiah (Memorial# 115539225) and Rosanna Lightfoot-Herman (Memorial# 115539239). It's support like yours that helps make Find-a-Grave such a wonderful research tool.

Thanks again!

Homer Earl
I noticed you have an entry made for Homer Earl, birth and death unknown. I'm wondering if this came from a cemetery book and if it listed anything else at all. He was born around 1871 and seems to be dead before 1940.

Susan Darnell Dye
I'm seeking information on Susan Darnell Dye who was the second wife of my Great Grandfather, Moses Dye. I have never been able to find my Great Grandfather who died in Seward Co., NE so hoping an obit for Susan or a death certificate would shed some light on Moses Dye.

Thank you for the work you do in adding headstone pictures to Find A Grave

RE: Welcome to FAG!
Hi Barb! I had to delete Colbys page and start over because another Find A Grave put on that picture of Colby doing cement work in the basement--which I absolutely hate ;( but in the process Bob Naber had to remove the picture of the grave that you had submitted--by chance do you still have those? I would love for you to replace the ones I have on there--yours were much better and it meant a lot to me that they were yours--you were such an important part of Colbys life, I will forever be greatful for all you did for him :)

Felix Heath # 65612898
!!! You've found him!!! With Catharine & their son on other sides of the same monument!!! This is definitely my Felix (R.)& family. Thank you for all the new pictures. I doubt he ever served in the Civil War though. He'd be going on 50 with a passel of young'uns after being guardian for all the Simmons orphans for ages and......I do know he was born in Pickaway Co., Ohio, rem'd to Illinois, to Green County, Wisconsin, finally to Nebraska. The dates are correct. I have no evidence he ever was in Missouri, much less to enlist.

I looked up the contributor Cameron-Ashley Heath (#46896958) who submitted the service record for a Felix Heath. She would probably be thrilled if you make up a separate memorial for him. Hope you've still got the other picture with the worn top, it was an 'H' after all. I'm afraid I don't remember the stone itself having any dates.

I so thrilled to know Catharine's found, I'm probably not making home email is on my contributor page if you need to reach me directly.
Thank you so very much,
Cynthia in Wisconsin

Scarr, William and Christina

You have their birth and death as unknown. They are buried at Riverside Cemetery in Gibbon. Do you have any information on them? Christina P. Householder Scarr is a 1st cousin 3 times removed. I was just trying to update my information. I know they died after 1940.

RE: Ulysses Cemetery Ulysses, Butler County

I do not know what caused their deaths. I assume the cemetery is in two section. One part in one township and the other in another township. I have been able to find the NORTHWAY graves, but not the SHIELDS until you posted their names.

I am researching the descendants of those buried in a small rural cemetery in Rush County, Indiana. A little over 600 in the cemetery and it is still active. One of my oldest is James Kitchen 1770-1854, his wife died 1831, she had eleven children. I am trying to find where all eleven went. I am down to the final three children. SHields family is one of his descendants.

Thanks for posting them on Find A Grave. It really does help. I had names but could not findout what happen to them.
