Bio and Links
I live in the small village of Winnetoon, NE., population 70. During the winter hours, I spend my time researching family. My families are Ballou, Davidson, Fredrickson, Greggers, Harper, Hopkins, Hubbard, Neuhaus, Oleson, Reynolds, Seltz, Stone, Ward.

If you need family info or obits from early Creighton, Nebraska newspapers 1901 thru 1913, I may be able to help. Have saved all obits I found. Some weeks are missing.

I also have access to most of the Creighton, Knox County, Nebraska newspapers from 1929 to current.

Except for some gravestones done by others, I have photographed all St. Ludger Cemetery in Creighton, Riverside, Pleasant Valley, Jelen and Hillcrest Cemeteries at Verdigre, the Winnetoon Cemetery and Millerboro Cemetery in Antelope county. There may be some recent burials that are not done, plus a few I could not find.

92995326, Gayle, you loaded a picture onto Henry Wakefield's memorial. I checked out your historical society and see no mention of Henry Wakefield. Where did you get the picture? Do you have any other family information? Thank you, Cindy

RE: Crandalls
I copied and pasted what the ebay seller said about the scrapbook. I bought it from what he stated about it. If you would like to buy it, I paid $24.00 and the shipping would be book rate of $3.50 is all. If you change your mind it is okay.

I forgot to mention that she was in a lot of school plays and many play programs are in it.

I did find a later posting in there between the 2 sets of gifts. I guess her daughter Marceline's graduation gifts list is in there from 1941.

RE: Crandalls
I just bought it from Ebay. Some family member sold it at an estate sale. I paid $24 for it. I buy old scrapbooks for the reason of preserving the information in them and most people buy them to dismantle them and resell the stuff in them. If you look in my memorials on Find A Grave, look up Gertrude Kennedy and you can see what I do with the items I buy. She was spectacular and I too fall in love with the families. I become their family. Right now, my project is a old WWI scrapbook of the Blanchard Family. I found their family members and in the process of adding the information and pictures online found out they had no clue who their great grandfather was even his name. They too can be found in my memorials. I am sponsoring them and adding pictures and documents to their Find A Grave memorials.

I recently bought a old baby photograph/scrapbook of a man and found his family online and it turns out the baby is still alive!! His mother died when he was 17 and she had compiled it. It even had his birth certificate in it. The new family of his dad had sold it at a estate sale out of spite and I got it on ebay.

I would sell this after I document it online. I don't want to think that the same family members get it that sold it in the first place though. You can have the family contact me so we can chat about it. I am like this, the same way I am about adopting out a puppy or kitten. I don't want someone to have it that will abuse it. These are my babies once I start researching them. I treasure and respect the people in them just as if they were alive today.

RE: Crandalls
It isn't booklet. It is a book that was sold back then specifically for scrapbooking. It is the size of a regular book and she started creating in it in 1917. The last thing that is posted in it, is a list of gifts for her wedding shower which, if I am not mistaken was in 1918 so it covers her senior year in high school. About 20 pictures. There are loads of names in it. Since finding her on Find A Grave, I can see that many of them were family members. Her brother, Grandmother Bonge. Her parents gave her 2 twenty dollar gold pieces. Boy, wouldn't you love to have that. I am in the process of researching some of the names. There is a huge list of graduation presents and then a large list of wedding presents with names on both lists. Do you know when, where or how her brother died as he evidently died fairly young?

Are you a descendant of the Crandalls? I own Lorena Crandall VanCamp's old high school scrapbook from 1917

Wilmes and Venkeer
Dear Gayle: I would like to save copies of the headstone photos you have taken of members of these families. William and Anna Venkeer Wilmes are a great-uncle and aunt. My great-grandfather Herman Wilmes was a resident of Creighton for a time before the turn of the 20th century, and my grandfather Henry J. Wilmes was born there. It is wonderful to make the connection. I was born and raised in Omaha but we never visited Creighton. Now, it is a trip that would be very hard to arrange.

Thank you very much for your dedication to this genealogy. Your efforts are very much appreciated.
