Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the EDIT to ask for transfers, with your ID # and the PHOTO REQUEST if you want a photo of the stone for EACH person listed. I try to get other family near the one requested in case they are not already listed, but if they are already listed it is nice if you also request them. I print off the requests from the computer, and the "notes" don't show if you ask for other family members. You have my permission to use my photos of the stones for your family records.

It is my wish that everyone is remembered, this is my way of helping make it happen. We all will make mistakes, I'm happy to make changes and transfer loved ones. I just want to help. I am so thankful for the ones that put family of ours on, some we had no idea where were, so you can see what a blessing Find A Grave has been.

Today this seems to be the case- Author Unknown
An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along the road they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame the old man is walking and the boy is riding." The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Later they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk." So they then decided they'd both walk. Soon they passed some more people who remarked, "They're really stupid to walk when they have a donkey to ride." So they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them by saying, "How awful to put such a load on a poor donkey?" The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the donkey and he fell into the river and drowned. The moral to the story? If you try to please everybody, you might as well kiss your ass goodbye!

Having expressed this I have to say, most all of the people are easy to please. There are occasionally some who aren't, it is extremely hard to read people's minds. If you send information try to tell us how you want it added or used. It is really helpful if you send it directly to that persons memorial page, but I'll do my best to add & give credit to you however you get it to me. Thank you all who have sent links and info to make memorials more then just names and dates!

RE: Groom
Thank you very much. That slab in particular was eerily beautiful and moving. What about the other 100 or so others that have slabs and then a raised area at the top that's curved with inscriptions? I've never seen anything like them. Closest would be something in a jewish cemetery, but these did not look like any particular denomination. There was one family of 8 or more lined up next to each other.

Also, do you know if there is a map or directory of the layout and internments? Next to the groom vertical monument is a small "mother" and "father" but no other inscriptions. Don't know if they go with the Groom monument or someone else. Any cemetery records? Thank you for your quick reply earlier. Interesting little town. Can't imagine what was there over 100 years ago when my family was alive.

Thank you for posting the pictures of my great great great grandparents at Table Rock, Charles A Groom. Finally made it to Nebraska today and found them for my father.

Any idea what all the various long slab grave stones are? I've never seen anything like them. And they are curved. Do you know the history/meaning behind them?

Thank you again so very much.

dates reversed on information

The information for Thomas Farrell and his son Thomas Farrell which are both listed on the same headstone and are buried in St. Mary Cemetery in Dawson, Nebraska have been reversed.

Thomas Farrell the son was born in 1860 and died on 5 June 1881. You have him listed as having died on 22 October 1893 which is the date of death for his father Thomas.

Thanks and thank you for all your contributions.

Bertha Grunder
Forgot to tell you that I have asked the person that put her in Corning to delete that memorial # 61986968 for her.

Looks like that info came from the internet. You can not depend on the internet as your only source. That data is only as good as the researcher and some are not very thorough.

Even records sometimes have wrong info. SO I like to check at least 2 or 3 sources.

Bertha Grunder
I got an email back from the Lauder Funeral Home from Bill and he states that they did handle Bertha's arrangements. See below.
Yes, We did take care of Bertha, She died August 16, 1980 and is buried in the Seneca City Cemetery in Seneca, Kansas… she is in the middle north section. Lot 117 graves 3 and 4. Hope this helps you out…. bill

Can you tell me if you handled the funeral arrangements for Bertha Grunder in 1980? if so, which cemetery is she buried in? Corning or Seneca City? Thank you, Betty Sears

So, I think you could edit your memorial and take out the statement that she is buried in Corning.

Again, thank you for your work on find-a-grave.

RE: Faulkender/Grunder
I did have the year of their marriage posted as 1913 - so still showing Charles on the bottom.

I have written to the funeral homes in Seneca to find out if either of them handled the arrangement for Bertha and what their records show for burial place.

Will let you know as soon as I hear. The library there will charge an $8. per hour for research - so if you are in the area and could look in the 1980 newspaper and find an obit for Bertha - that would be great.

Appreciate your work on find-a-grave.

William Jones
Hi Lu,
William was my grandmother's uncle. We have always thought he was born in 1866 and died in 1914. I would love a photo of his tombstone. Also, you show on find a grave reference to his obituary in 1917. Would you be willing to email me that?

Thanks for your hard work on Find a Grave

Thank you for your prompt response in updating the memorials for Bertha Grunder. Appreciated the photo too. Notice in the info from Ron that he had stated that Bertha was buried by herself.
According to the stone - she is buried beside her last husband. You might want to take that statement out. Do you know the location of the grave?

Appreciate your work on find-a-grave.
