Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I discovered this website, I was determined to try to be a part in bringing faces, stories and history to the people who have passed before us. My father and grandfather both kept diary books and left me with the sense that their ancesters needed to be remembered. I have done Genealogy research for many years on several names within my family. I have been entering cemetery information about others outside my family also. I find that this website is a valuable source when tracing ancestry so memorials of loved ones long past is important to me. I have found contributors to be very helpful and cooperative as I will try to be to others asking for information, transfers or even photographs if possible. Please use the edit tab to notify me of any changes or additions to a specific memorial. By the way, the picture to the left is of me (taken a while back.)

I found the article about this fellows death in saving his sister and dying doing it. I hope you will post on his memorial for other researchers. Thank you. Mary

Article from the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 27 December 1888 reads…

YOUNG HERO KILLED

John Bryan Returns to a Burning Building to Obtain Clothing and Perishes

Nebraska City, Nebraska, December 27 - A farm house seven miles southeast of here occupied by Ashbury Bryan, his wife and six children was destroyed by fire about two o'clock yesterday morning and John Bryan, about twenty-one years of age, perished in the flames. The family was awakened by the cries of one of the children and had just time to escape from the building. All except one little girl got out together and John returned and rescued her at the peril of his life. Then as his mother and the children were standing in the snow barefooted and in their night dresses, the young hero went back to get clothes for them. While in the burning building he was overcome by the heat and his body was found just inside a door burned to a crisp. Mrs. Bryan waded four miles through the snow in her bare feet before securing help.

RE: Milligan family
I just realized that the grandmother Martha listed in your email, is Thomas Snodgrass Milligan's wife, she must be buried in the
cemetery with her children.
Thomas Snodgrass Milligan is buried in
Waynesburg Cem. (Find A Grave) Jefferson, Ohio
Martha must have went to Nebraska with her
daughters. Let me know if you put her on Find A Grave
and I will connect Thomas Snodgrass to her.

Thank you for the info. Cornelius was her husband, not her son. I wonder if he is buried there, but without a headstone. He died around the same time. I'll have to do some digging. Thanks for responding.

Hello!
I noticed you had created a memorial for Minnie. I was wondering if you knew if her husband, Cornelius K. Preston, was buried next to her? He doesn't have a memorial on Find A Grave and I didn't want to create one until I knew where he was buried. Its probably safe to say its close to his wife since his parents are also buried in the same cemetery, but I wanted to ask to be sure. The photo was taken 6 years ago, so you probably won't know, but it never hurts to ask! Thank you!

Robert L. Jordan
Dear Lloyd,

Perhaps you remember me. I asked you for permission to use a photo from findagrave a while back.

Anyway, my quest for the graves of those who served with my grandfather in WWI continues. This time it is for Robert L. Jordan (Find A Grave Memorial# 44285686). He is listed in the 355th National Directory as having served in Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. This is confirmed by his gravestone.

Again, I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but want to eventually publish something. Would it be permissible to use your photograph of the grave of Robert L. Jordan?

Thank you!

Bryan Anderson
