Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and reared in Michigan, only child of Theodore and Elizabeth Ferency, married to the world's greatest husband, have three fabulous kids, FOUR wonderful grandkids and a precious great-granddaugher.

Hobbies: family tree research, reading, painting, gardening, restoring/coloring photos.

I try not to manage more memorials than I have added, so I am usually happy to transfer memorials for any reason.

Family lines which interest me are:


If I have contributed something to a page and you wish it to be removed, you just have to ask. If I am contributing something, it is only out of a desire to help the family of the departed. If I do not use the "edit" key when I send update info on people, it is because it contains information that there is no space for other than in the bio section, such as occupation, how they died, and the names of parents who are not on FaG.

If one is dedicated to adding info to memorials, you get to the point where FaG makes you jump thru hoops to contact the page manager to "prove you are not a robot". You have to identify photos, sometimes several times over. When I get to that point, I just add the info with a flower. They also changed something so you can't really email them, either. (Takes you to microsoft office outlook, who I don't have an account with and cannot use.) Don't gripe at me, gripe at FaG. Ain't nobody got time for that.

It seems that Find a Grave didn't think the rest of what I added here was worthwhile, as it as been removed.

Ursa Freed
Hi again! I tried to find information on Nadine Freed. The only clipping of the correct woman was when her mother, William's second wife (?) was "visiting with her daughter, Nadine Freed" in Minneapolis, where the father's obituary says she was living. This could be a daughter from the second marriage. I did find another Nadine Freed, but it wasn't the right one as she got married in 1933, and Ursa's sister was still Freed in 1936 and her parents are listed as Mr. and Mrs. George Freed. If I find anything, I'll let you know. Any ideas about Nadine?

Ursa Freed
Thanks for his information! I am an architectural historian that's why my interest in Ursa. I found the obituary for his father, William, and have linked them through the edit tab. In the obit it doesn't say anything about a first wife, just listed his current wife, Maude, and adult children, Ursa and Nadine. The obituary was in the December 12, 1936 issue of The Daily Plainsman, Huron SD. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.

We received your request for adding additional information to the memorial for Gilbert Parmelee in Maplewood Cemetery. After checking your profile, I'm wondering if you could help us. There is a burial for a Harold Parmelee in Maplewood - date of death 1880. Our records indicate he was an infant of 8 months. Do you have any information on him that might help us link to his parents?
Thank you for any help you may have.
