I was born and raised in Minden, NE, haved lived in Omaha, NE since 1974. I am doing my family genealogy for Albers-Bloomfield-Conyers-Gartner-Kuhn/Kuehn/Keen-Mathers-Nuss-Sasse and all their descendants. I have been working on genealogy for about 40 years and still feel I have only scratched the surface. I love exploring and photographing cemeteries, not only for myself but for you who are also searching.
Please remove note! You might want to remove the "Note" attached to the memorial of Daniel Cowgill #9745852, buried in the Stukey Cemetery, Adair County, MO. since he "HAS A STONE ON HIS GRAVE". See photo attached to Daniel's memorial taken by Larry Olson. Just thought you might want to correct this. Thanks,
RE: Correction to Joellen's information Thats OK I just googled Joellen's name and came across this site and the information that you posted. I think that the information is great and the site is very useful for people looking for info. Myself and my sister Connie Stadler were talking about the info and there are some small corrections. Joellen spelled her name without the capital E in Ellen so the correct spelling is Joellen and not JoEllen. Also, her middle name was not Clara, but rather Cynthia her full name was Joellen Cynthia Stadler and finally she passed away while in a hospital in Texas and not in Nebraska. Thanks again, John Stadler
Correction to Joellen's information Hello, I am John Stadler and Joellen was my sister and I noticed that there are some errors in her information. I left the corrections in the "Edit" portion of the site, but no changes or corrections have been made. What do I need to do to correct the post. Any information that you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
In the rear of the Collins Cemetery in Willow Lake is the Catholic Cemetery (St. James Catholic Cemetery). I took photos of Morris McGeough in this part of the cemetery and added them to Find a Grave. Now I noticed that they are already in the Collins Cemetery. Let me know how you would like to manage Morris, from the Collins or the St. James site? Go to http://www.clarksd.com/cemeteries/stjamescemetery.htm
Meltine or rather Mettine Dybbro memorial and headstone Thanks for the photo :-) A bit sad that the family didn't get her birth name right on the headstone, but it's easy to understand why: She probably wasn't called anything else than 'Tina'. But in her birth record her given name was Mettine, a variation of the rather common girl's name 'Mette'. The surname was Dybroe in the record. In the censuses Dybro was preferred. But as there weren't any strict rules for spelling names those days, Dybbro would be perfectly allright.
Elizabeth Robb Memorial Hi: Another researcher contacted me to inform of duplicate entries for Elizabeth (Bellamy) Robb. (I added one in 2013 not knowing of the on you added in 2010.) We could just delete one or the other or try to merge the information somehow. The one I entered has various links for siblings too, however, so there would be some work involved if you wanted to update your record. (Elizabeth is a distant aunt of mind so I had more information than usual for her.) Compare memorial 114661799 vs. 55877756 and let me know what you think. Thanks, Bob Bellamy
Newmansville Cemetery Photo Requests I spent the afternoon today out at the Newmansville Cemetery. Sorry I wasn't able to find your requests. There are many markers that have been damaged and worn beyond recognition and some that are partially buried which leads me to believe there are many buried there. I spoke with the lady that runs the bait shop there, the only business and one of only a handful of residents there. Once upon a time that was a thriving community, but as many of our rural towns have done, there isn't much of it left anymore. I wish I could have been of more help to you as I know how important it is to some of us researching our roots. Darrel
Schwartz Family My name is Judy Sigwarth and I'm wondering if the memorial for Anna S. Dorothea Schwartz (Andersen) 1884-1961 in the Hildreth, Franklin County, NE Cemetery could possibly be my grandmother's sister. I left a flower tribute that I can delete if needed. Do you know if Anna was adopted? If so, who were her adoptive parents? Thank you for any help you can give me.
Elic Bloomfield My grandmother is a descendent of Elic Bloomfield and she has always told me his middle name was Elmer. You have it listed as Ellsworth. Where did you get the information for the middle name being Ellsworth? Also, I noticed you did work on Minnie Gross's memorial, Elic's wife. There is no mention of her parents. Do you know their names?
