Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please take a moment to leave a flower for Mom, Shannon Howard.

I do my genealogy to honor my mother. She was very interested in our family history, both her own as well as my dad's side. She was always trying to peak my interest, to no avail. About a year after she passed away I was going through some of her papers and I was bitten by the bug.

My main interests are with the Kamery, Fahey, Howard, Hyde, Chrisman, Hill and John families of Nebraska, Missouri, Virginia and Olean/Hinsdale, New York. I have a special interest in Madison Square Cemetery in Loup County west of Taylor, Nebraska.

If you are interested in an original copy of any picture I've posted please contact me and I'll be happy to forward it to you.

I am requesting that Sarah Esther Beetem Gill (first husband) Hazelett (second husband) memorial 59058936 be linked to her mother Mary Polly Burnum Beetem memorial 50199082.

Thank you,


P.S. As a direct maternal lineage descendant, we share the same mtDNA of H7.

William Bright Wadsworth
The obit which is attached on this William Wadsworth is incorrect. The William who was married to Lydia Skivington did not die until Sept 7, 1908 in Long Creek Township Iowa. They are listed in the 1900 Swan, Vinton County, Ohio census living with their son, Robert and his wife Carrie. William Bright Wadsworth was married to Judah Hassinger. They lived in Decatur Iowa. He died in 1879, leaving Judah a widow with several children who migrated to Nebraska.

Could someone correct this information?

Hello Walking the Past,

Thank you very much for accepting and processing the edits and links that I submitted for Albert and Sylvia. I greatly appreciate it. I am working on the Peterson Family and it was great to find their memorials. Once I have verified some more of their information, I may have some more updates. Thanks Again! :)

Pearl Howard
I would like very much to have a copy of the photo of Pearl Howard and his parents. My great grandfather's first wife was Rebecca Jane McLaughlin, sister of Nancy McLaughlin. Jane died in Appanoose county near Mystic IA 1874 but no burial site found as of this time. Thank you very much for any help.

John W. Smith and Susie Smith
I believe my great grandmother is the Mrs. John Smith of LuVerne alluded to in Dietrich Stauffacher's obituary. Her name was Susie Stauffacher Smith and I believe she lived most of her life in and around LuVerne, Iowa, so I believe she and her husband, John W. Smith, must be buried in the LuVerne Cemetery. Is there anyway to can find out for me? I was named for her. Thank you, Susan Malloy
