New Hoy Family Member: I would Love for you to Visit my new memorial for John "Doc" Hoy and leave a floral tribute. I found his very sad story in an Omaha Newspaper from April 1899. I have no idea what Hoy family he actually belongs to, but have adopted him to mine, nevertheless.

Thank You,

RE: Re: Nate Kinnison
Yes, I think that this is only a partial stone and that some may be buried in the ground. It does not look like a military type stone. I just really want to see that he has a military stone if he served in the Civil War. Sounds like he is buried in Co and the Lafayette marker is just a cenotaph. Interesting! Looking forward to meeting you. Suzzy

Just hello
Haven't had a reason to communicate in a while, so I thought I'd just say hello. Hope you are well. Thank you, again, for your work here on find-a-Grave.
The work on Albert Fass' sister, Almuth Catherina Fass Weber Johnson, and brother, Hermann Fass, last Winter into Spring has taken its course. I made some changes on Albert's memorial# 70884247 to reflect those relationships. It was wonderful to work with several people in finding that lost and hidden material.
I have been thinking I should dig into the Rockemann's and try to find some cousins on that side who have pictures.
Have a good day.

RE: Re: Newton Kinnision
Thanks for that information. I also used ancestry and found a Newton Kinnison, but never associated that with the name Nate. I wonder if he has a Civil War marker in Colorado? Will have to see what I can find out. Perhaps the mortuary marker set in concrete that is in Lafayette is simply a cenotaph. Oh, for the one mystery that you can solve another five mysteries pop up! I was gone all weekend and did not check my email or messages. If you are still in Auburn, please feel free to stop by the cleaners any time.

Nate Kinnison
Hi Kathy. I see that you created the memorial for Lawrence Kinnison, a War of 1812 Veteran at the Lafayette Cemetery near Brock. Next to him is a mortuary marker set in concrete with a Veteran's flag holder for a Nate Kennison (possible misspelling of Kinnison). Do you have any information whatsoever on Nate Kinnison? The dates have disappeared from his mortuary marker. I would like to see about getting him a Veteran's Stone. No person who has ever served their country should like in an unmarked grave. I need at least dates to try and start this process by searching for newspaper obituary. Any help would be appreciated. Stop by if you get back to Nemaha County any time this summer!! Thanks!

Jacob Kuntz Jr. # 50629959
Hi Kathy! I'm still looking for the record I found indicating Jacob's mother was Catherine Brindle. But, I'm seeing there are several Jacob's who were married to Susan's in the same age group, so i most likely grabbed the wrong Jacob. I did find in the 1880 Census Jacob indicated both of his parents are from Penn, but I know location info in Census docs is not always accurate. And your death record trumps everything anyway :)

Some folks like to get doc links to verify info and others don't, so I typically don't provide them right off. Thank you for making me double check before updating this Memorial.

RE: Re : Berger

The marker for Harry is at one end of that section where there are many single graves, some with markers and some without. I did not see a general marker identifying it as a particular organization or church, but it reminded me of that type of area.

Cecelia's grave is at the other end of that same section, buried with Sophia Marie Crawford. I was unable to locate a marker. But it was hot and we left because there was a funeral starting nearby. I may have overlooked it, so I didn't mark her request with "problem". Perhaps another volunteer can find her.
