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 always hoping that you can add to their memorials. I just want to help, when I find more information and send an edit, it is sad when that isn't added. 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!

Just goes to show the tiniest bit of information for one is all another may need. Yes, I'm family but given your good karma, I think she's best staying with you. Thanks for all - quite amazing.

RE: Piersons Point Cemetery
Thanks for your comment - YES its been quite an undertaking. I hope to post new photos in the near future of some of the headstones that I have been able to recover and put back together with what peace's I've been able to locate, so you may wish to check from time to time for updates as I get them posted!

RE: Lange/Kuenzi
The Lange who married a Kuenzi is probably Leota Kuenzi. My mom talks about her and kept in touch until Leota's death not all that many years ago. If I remember correctly, she lived in Bern and is buried there but would have to ask mom for sure.

Pawnee County All Veterans Memorial
I read your post from 2013 on Keith Abbott's memorial.

you wrote:
"Your name is the first on a new memorial at the Pawnee City, NE courthouse grounds of those KIA while serving their country. May you rest in peace knowing you are not forgotten~"

Would you happen to have pictures of the memorial?

Thank you,

Dave Abbott

RE: John Hecht
Walter and Clarence were my great-uncles. My grandfather was Victor Hecht. Gayle still lives in Pawnee City and is my mom's first cousin. We still run into him occasionally, especially when the Southeast Nebraska Community Band, of which I am a member, plays in the Pawnee City area. Will see if my mom has any photos of John Hecht. He was never married, as was killed by lightning as a single man. Would love to work together with you on all the Hecht/Meader/Mosteller/Lange families!!!!

RE: Geo. Sammy Lunsford
You are welcome for the information and I'm not related to George Lunsford, but you have me on the hunt! I found where his mother died but no place of burial was listed in the obit. I just found his brother Charles:) - added that as a link in his bio. Go to's a free site and you can see most of the Census. You might have to sign in, but it is FREE. Have a good one.

RE: John Hecht
Go ahead and use what you'd like. If you are interested in transferring any of the memorials you have, I would be happy to take any of the Hecht family. I know you have a lot and would be happy to help out if you need it! Also, I know some Hinrichson folks from down by Dawson....any relation?

RE: Mary (Gillespie) Keithley
I'm still searching.
But it looks like both parents died in Pawnee County, NE.
I used to think that the Gillespies in Smith Cemetery in Linn County, MO were the parents, but now not so sure.
I do know that William Francis Keithley married Mary Frances Gillespie in Alpha ( Grundy County ) Mo.
