Bio and Links
I discovered the genealogy hobby in 2009. I was born in Nebraska and still have family there. Names and places I'm researching include Hineline/Heinlein in PA, OH, and NE, Mattson in ND and Sweden, Oberst in OH and NE, Smith in NE, Flynn in PA and IA, Fisher and Bolton in southwest VA and eastern IA, Johnson in NE, Harsch in Germany and eastern NE.

Most of the memorials I create are my family, but I am willing to transfer the ones not related to me--just ask!

for Hinelines be sure to check DeSoto Neb. cemetery
The town of DeSoto used to be down by the Missouri River. They had a wood mill and more. Then they moved up toward the hills, and today the land is mostly Omaha Public Power District Nuclear Plant (OPPD0 That didn't happen right away--for a long time that bottom land was simply farmland.

The DeSoto cemetery is photographed and on FindaGrave. It is hard to get there--private land surrounding it and so forth. Also, there were Mormons in the area (quite a story about a Hineline grandfather who, after having outlived 2 wives (one at a time, by the way), married yet a third time. He had a terrible headache, and the 3rd wife brought over a Mormon pastor, who prayed, and the man was cured. "Baptize me and all my family--we are going to be Mormons". But then there were people who moved graves to the newer Blair cemetery.

We still have a county commissioner named Hineline--he took us to see the old DeSoto cemetery, and he told us the story--it was his GGG grandfather.

So some of the Hinelines in the Blair cemetery descend from that group.

Today the Hinelines attend a variety of churches, or none at all, depending on individual decisions.

Best wishes--I don't know all the connections between the Strickletts, the Ladwigs, and the Hinelines whose stones are in the main group picture, but the stones "match", and there is a concrete rectangle around the whole plot, so I would imagine there are some family ties.

John & Winnie Wilson-Alpine
Yes, she is buried on the right of John. No headstones. If you are family, please give me an email address, to I can tell you a few things I learned today. This cemetery has no grass, due to the cost in dry San Diego. But the place is neat, clean, and well cared for.

Christian Thrane at Forest Home Cemetery
Good morning Agent. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to contact Forest Home Cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot Numbers) for your photo request(s), ask them whether or not there is a grave marker, and then either post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Mission Coordinates: Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

Should you choose not to accept this mission, your photo request(s) will most likely continue to go unfulfilled. This message will not self destruct in five seconds. Good luck Agent!

Mission Commander

Mission Background: Forest Home is a massively humongous cemetery with well over 100,000 burials. Burial plot information is vital in order to photograph a grave for you. Forest Home disavows all photo volunteers, refusing to aid them in finding graves, so your mission is indispensable and integral to helping fulfill your photo request.

From the Find A Grave Dossier: All personnel are advised that Find A Grave states it is the responsibility of the photo requestor to provide the grave plot (section and lot number) to assist the volunteer photographers.

Mission Success: Last year your Mission Commander successfully completed 200 photo missions at Forest Home Cemetery that had the grave location provided by the photo requestor. In just over a year he successfully concluded over 1,500 photo missions with over 700 successful missions already in 2014.

Mission Failure: Impossible

RE: Caroline Starkweather
Hi Jeri, It was my pleasure in helping you. I search for all the Starkweather in the cemetery. Only Starkweather that I found was Hiram Starkwether. There was a big gap between his headstone and another headstone. That most be where rest of the Starkweather buried at. I am very sorry that there was not a headstone for her.
