Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking photographs at cemeteries for a long time - of family members - from Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Wisconsin. Ever so gradually I will enter them on Find-A-Grave. Currently, I am compiling a genealogy story of the Olsen family that moved from Denmark to southern Nuckolls County, Nebraska, so have a lot of graves photographed at Spring Creek Cemetery. I will try to enter those photos first.

Once at a cemetery, I photograph as many stones as I have time. Here in KS most are not related to me. If you come across one that you want to claim, let me know and it can be changed.

My family lines include: Burdick, Davis, Williams, Greene, Walker, Carpenter, White, Owens.
My husband's family lines include: Jorgensen, Olsen, Petersen, Riber, Frederiksen, Jeppesen, Iversen, Nielsen, Waggensen, Klitten, Christensen, Christiansen, and the list goes on.

RE: Herbert Lewis Cottrell

I am up date on my edits. Do you have additional information to add to the Cottrells memorials? You can make a virtual cemetery.

To create a virtual cemetery, go to your contributor tools(left hand column after logging in). Once there click on the edit button across from "my virtual cemeteries". Then you will be able to add a new virtual cemetery or edit any that you have already created. Once you have created a virtual cemetery it will show up in your contributor tools. Go to the memorial that you would like to add to your virtual cemetery. Underneath the memorial's burial information is a link that says "Edit Virtual Cemetery" and "What's this". Click on "Edit Virtual Cemetery" and it will bring you to your list of virtual cemeteries. There is a box next to each virtual cemetery that you have created. Check the box(click the mouse on it) on the virtual cemetery you would like to add this memorial to and then click "save changes". This will add the person to that virtual cemetery.

thank you
Thank you for the obit. From your email, it appeared that you wanted your name as the contributor, so I added it to the memorial. If you would like it removed, please let me know and I will do so right away. Thanks again.

RE: Mary Witter Allen
Hi Jean,
Glad the photo was helpful! I'm visiting family in Alfred, not far from the cemetery. We're not Seventh Day Baptists, but we're familiar with the churches' rich history in the community here.
All the best,

Glen Hiram Chase
There is no listing in the online directory for this person at Glendale cemetery for this person. Lillian's photo has been placed. She is buried with Franklin Chase.

I sure will. Good luck finding out something, it's driving me nuts. :-)

RE: Fred Johnson
Well, I am not at all sure what is going on. The marker for Fred V House is at exactly the spot that Fred Johnson is supposed to be buried, and the death year matches. The cemetery records do not have the name Fred House listed, but they do show Fred Johnson in that location with a burial date of 8/15/1915. I was actually hoping that you might know what was going on, that there was some tie between the House and Johnson families or something. I will be happy to take the photo down if you want. Just let me know. To me, it's all a mystery. Ken Snyder

RE: Charles Griffin
You are more than welcome. His father, Samuel P. Griffin, is my 3rd great uncle, and his parents, Rev. Samuel S. & Elizabeth A. (Harris) Griffin, are my 4th great grandparents, who are buried in the area where I live. Another son of Rev. SS & Elizabeth is buried next to them, Nathaniel Harris Griffin.
I've been working on the genealogy for some time now and I am happy that I was able to find the memorial that you made.
Thank you
