Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of the memorials I created, I did back in 2007, taking their name, dates, burial place from a Brown County, Kansas cemetery list. I'm not doing that anymore as others have taken up that process and are whizzing right thru it. May be close to complete for Brown county. As of late I've been working on updating my memorials one at a time. Looking for their obits, locating them in censuses and linking them to family.

There was a one-page article in the June 2011 issue of National Geographic about the number of people who have ever lived on earth. After much research American demographer Carl Haub estimated that 108 billion people had lived (and died) between 50,000 B.C. and 2011.

RE: Tyler cemetery
Here are my suggested directions:

As of 2015, proceed to cemetery by driving east from the intersection of 210th Street and Bittersweet Road. Access from Bobcat Road is not possible due to a closed bridge.

I've added her obit, but something isn't right. It's nothing you've done, I just thought it interesting that her birth was in April 1893 and death in Aug 1896 and they said she was only 18 months old? Her stone even says those dates. Someone couldn't figure or there was a typo. She would have been 3 yr and 4 months.
I wonder if ... no, it has to be the same person because of the death date. They just made a mistake I guess.

RE: Wilhelmina Margretha
Edward Nicholas Ludwig and Mary Ellen Abultz Schuetz are her parents and ALbert was her brother. Her parents are buried in St. Johns in Falls City. I have pictures of them and their headstone, just never uploaded.

RE: Orion W. Welsh
Hi Keith, Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I went back through my research and I think you are correct that he was born in Nebraska. I have not found a listing for him in the 1940 US Census. I have 1910, 1920, and 1930.They show him born in Neb in all three. The 1930 Census lists last name as Welch, but it should be Welsh.
What threw me off is his Illinois death index. I lists his birth in Greely Co, Iowa. But everything else looks correct on it. As I'm sure you know, there are sometimes obvious mistakes in records.
I have not found any information of a wife Osiela, or daughter Dorothy. (not yet anyway) His wife Bertha I (Osey) is listed in the 1920 and 1930 US Census as wife of Orion. I have found Bertha again in 1940 US Census as head of household along with the children, but no listing for Orion. He would have still been alive, but must not have been in the home. Her maiden name "Osey" is listed on Orion's birth certificate. I did not submit a edit for it.
Orion is a brother-in-law of my paternal grandfather but not in my bloodline. Jessie Welsh was my grandfather's second wife. She raised my dad until she was killed in a car/train collision.
I am following the Welsh family in my family tree, but don't have all the details by any means.
Thanks for your memorials! Dan
