Bio and Links
Bio Photo Wish I would have known about this site years back. My wife and I have been in cemeteries all over the country from Alaska to Arkansas and New Mexico to New Hampshire. We have over 19,000 names in our family tree. I have a passion for doing this and would be glad to help anyone that I can. If I have something on here you would like removed I will do it.

I will be happy to transfer a memorial to you if your relation is closer than ours. Please include your Findagrave number, the name and number of memorial, and the cemetery where the memorial is located.

I have become the Family Historian and the keeper of records. It is a life-long journey that continues to fascinate, amaze and sometimes puzzle me.. but the path has taught me the value of patience and perseverance - both valuable life lessons.

I also do a web page for the little town of Indianola Nebraska that I live in. The site is

RE: Jacob Zurich
Bill, I am the Research Assistant at Bullion Plaza Cultural Center & Museum in Miami, Az. As I am digitizing old newspapers, I am saving the obituaries and adding the information to findagrave. So as I find them, I will add them. Also, if you find some that I've written, feel free to send me a message and ask for the actual obituary. Findagrave doesn't like for anyone to post the actual obituary, even though the copyright laws apply only for 90 years.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker and/or cemetery photos on my family website. Check it out at This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.

Thank you.

Memorial number 40337645. You noted burial in plot 366 in the Elmwood Cemetery in St. Paul, NE. I requested a photo and the volunteer said they could not locate a marker or stone there. Can you check your information on the plot number.

John Hyder
Hello Bill,

While looking into John Hyder, Find A Grave Memorial# 69618682, I found an obit for his wife.

Lincoln Evening Journal,Lincoln, Tuesday, September 7, 1926, Page 4

Mrs. John Hyder at York Tuesday. YORK, Neb., Sept. 7.—Funeral services were held at the home of W. W. Wycoff Tuesday afternoon for Mrs. John Hyder. fifty-eight, a former York resident whose death occurred at Los Angeles, following an operation. Mrs. Hyder Is survived by a daughter and two sons. Rev. R. L. Lindsay of Crete, preached the funeral sermon. Rev. Mr. Lindsay was pastor of the Congregational church in York when Mr. and Mrs. Hyder were married in the church more than thirty years ago. Mrs. Hyder’s husband, a former engineer for the Burlington, was killed in a railroad accident in 1911.

I believe the John Hyder you have in Wyuka is buried in York with his wife. Find A Grave Memorial# 115493275 and Find A Grave Memorial# 115493292.

Thank you for the transfer
Somewhere along the line I missed the email telling me that you had transferred Amanda Tracy's memorial to me. I am sincerely grateful to you for allowing me to take over this memorial. You are a gem!
