Bio and Links
I started adding to Find a grave out of duty. I have recieved so much information for my genealogy research based on the works of others. I felt it was time to give back to the field. I also have a keen interest in local history and enjoy walking through cemeteries and reading the headstones. You can learn a lot about a town's history by viewing its dead.
I can promise you there are mistakes in my work I am more then happy to correct errors found in it. E mail me with any corrections or if you have additions to any entry please feel free to let me know.
As you read entries you may note some do not have a death date on them. I have no evidence one way or the other as to if that person is alive or not. I choose to list the person with disclaimer so that the entire cemetery may be listed on the site.
I do try and go through an entire cemetery and list all stones in it. As I do not have long lunch breaks I can often get only a few stones at a time. With such time constraints I cannot always clean up a stone for proper picture taking. If your family has a less then flattering stone I am sorry for that. You may let me know. If I get time I will go back and retake that picture for you.
This project has been fun and rewarding. If you have not ever entered information and taken pictures I highly recomend it. It is not without its faults though. I have run into snakes and have been bitten by a dog in the process of this project. That is a minor problem though. All people deserve to be remembered. The Good Lord took the time to make them and no mater how brief their life that makes it worth remembering.

Thomas G. Shreve- Denair Cemetery Misidentifed
The Thomas G. Shreve buried at Denair Cemetery was an infant, probably the son of William Herbert Thomas Shreve who was born and died on 8 September 1928. The information on the birth and death date was provided by the Denair Cemetery Association. The father's name is guessed at because William Herbert Thomas Shreve, son of Thomas Grant Shreve of Los Angeles was living near Denair in 1930 (see 1930 census).

Van Benschoten, Grayson Cem.
This is regarding three of your memorials, in Grayson Cemetery: John Wesley Van Benschoten (#23623714), his first wife Jessie McKay-Van Benschoten (#23623769) and second wife Mary Ann Cameron-Gunn-Van Benschoten (#23623737), all on same stone. J.W. and Jessie were my great-great-grandparents. Would you be willing to transfer maintenance of the memorials to me? I would be grateful. I would like to add bios to each, and list the relationships. By the way, the correct info. for Jessie, based on my research, is: born 1832 (not 1882) in Nova Scotia, Canada, and died May 6, 1870 (not 1970).

Steve, I forgot to say in my first message, I am related to most all the Carlson's in the cemetery. They came over from Sweden in the early 1880's and were some of the earliest settlers to Western Nebraska. My Grandmother was Christine "Ballinger" Carlson. If you could I'd like to manage them also. Thanks, Les
