IMPORTANT ! Recent Change in Find A Grave

Please check the "Edits" tab below your name on your profile page. If there is a number beside it, you need to click on the tab to see the suggested changes to your memorials for you to approve or refuse.


Sometimes we inadvertently captured our own reflections in some of the highly polished stones, or, depending on time of day, adjacent stones sometimes cast a shadow. Depending on the time of year, sometimes weeds or grasses are tall, or bird droppings are a problem. If you post a better photo, leave me a note and I'll remove the one we took.

We maintain the directories at the Hillside Cemetery in Wolbach, Nebraska and at Rosehill Cemetery in Palmer, Nebraska. We appreciate the assistance of members of those cemetery boards in our attempts to provide accurate listings.

We also thank the editors of "The Wolbach Messenger," "The Palmer Journal" and the Central City "Republican Nonpareil" for granting permission to post obituaries from those newspapers to Find A Grave, to help preserve the history of Central Nebraska.

Hi Linda
If I send you a suggestion or correction, you don't need to give me credit.

I just feel it clutters up the memorial and that's what this is all about, right?

Josefa Kucera, Marie Kucera Wondra, and parents
My great, great aunt, Josefa Kucera is linked to her parents. I am wondering if you can and will link Marie to her parents and sister? I am not sure how this works, but I am going to send a message to the person who created Marie Kucera Wondra's memorial to see if they can make the link as well. Thank you for all of your work on these memorials.

All 4 cemeteries were not fully recorded on Find A Grave, so if u hav more obits, but couldnt find the deceased, mayb they've been added now - Hamm had 11 when I started, now 35, Danish Luth 38, now 82 - havent figured out the numbers for Elba, but I added A LOT!! Nysted was pretty well recorded but I did add many more....
if you're keeping a list, I have completely photographed and loaded these Howard Co cems.:
Mt Carmel

Long & Stewart Family
If you are interested - I would love to share notes on the Long & Stewart family. I have been researching this family group for about 10 years. I descend from Amos Long's daughter Pearl Long Brooks. I have some thoughts on the Stewart family that is so connected to the Longs.
Diana Bryson-Brooks
I had originally put Amos' obit on Find A Grave and I got in trouble for it - the "lady" that had a fit is no longer with Find A Grave - they kicked her off... I still walk on eggshell though!

I have family pictures and all sorts of documentation on Amos.

RE: Carlson's
Your memorial #60848972 inspired me to write the following:


This picture was taken and treasured by the couple in it, but they never put their name on the back, because they knew who they were. The next generation inherited the picture, again they knew it was their parents and would be able to tell their children who it was, and didn't label it. The generations would come and go finally someone put his name on the back of the picture, but not his wife's. A secure spot was always kept for the treasured picture, but by this time the picture would be carefully taken out of the box of pictures, looked at and said, "WHO IS THIS" because no one knew where they fit into the family, and the picture was carefully put back into the box to be handed down again.
Until today, because of the excellent work that everyone puts into the website "FIND A GRAVE" I now have a place to put the picture. All the pieces to the family puzzle are fitting together and my small family is becoming a large extended family.
Continue to keep this site up and running because we tend to loose our family these days with everyone living all over the world, because of your site and "The Computer Age" we can now become a family again.
The saying "WHO IS THIS" is no more, our families are being remembered with information and pictures and we can go visit them to leave a few nice words and flowers. I believe our ancestors are very pleased with their families for recognizing them and keeping them with us by putting them on "FIND A GRAVE". Their blood will always run through our veins, which keeps them living forever through all of us long after their death.

RE: George Stratton
The cemetery records indicated that there was a GAR Marker at one time and listed his unit. I put the information at the bottom of the descriptions for the photo.

I have a large reference book that lists the cemetery and detailed location of every grave site in Huron Co. up to the mid 1990s. It was very easy to find them. Unfortunately, the book is not on line, but the index is. If you see a name you are interested in, you can send me the name and page number and I can look it up and tell which cemetery and location of the site and get a photo if needed. It lists everything inscribed on the head stone. The link is below:

As to obituaries, our local Historical Society has thousands, but unfortunately only for our immediate locale in Erie County and not any in Huron Co. Obituaries, if available for the whole state can be obtained from the Hayes Museum. They can be ordered from there at the local libraries if available. The link is below:

Another helpful link for information is below:

You may already be familiar with some or all of these sites. I use them quite extensively.
