I am an avid family history buff and love to research. Cemeteries are such a great source for expanding family knowledge and family ties. I am delighted to be able to help anyone looking for family buried in the York and Hall County Nebraska and surrounding areas.
And for those of you who have visited my memorials and left flowers, your kindness is appreciated. I especially thank you for your thoughts about my granddaughter Michala. She is buried so far away, and I am so glad to have this place online to honor her memory. Thank you for caring.
I have added memorials for many persons who are not related to me. If you would like me to transfer these to you, please let me know. I am also willing to forward any pictures I have taken. I keep them for about a year.

|Phil Cheek||RE: Sawyers Cemetery|
I'm not sure which James Cheek you are looking for; there is more than one buried in Lee County. You may be looking for James Cheek, b. 1837 - died 28 Aug 1924, who is buried in the Sayers(not Sawyers) -Mcpherson-Gibson Cemetery in Gibson Station. I don't know much about him other than he had a Dughter, Mary Jane Hembree. You can email me at email@example.com.
|Deanann Steinman||Find A Grave Memorial# 51924011 for Howard Proud|
While searching my family roots, I came across the following article regarding the death of Howard Proud. I thought it might be of some assistance to his family in their research. I am no relation to Howard Proud but found this excerpt from the Clay County Texas Genealogy website. I have included the web address below. I hope this may be of some help to someone.

PLUNGE IN THE TANK
Has Fatal Results for Howard Proud
WAS SEIZED WITH CRAMPS
Victim Sank and Came to Surface Several Times Within a Few Feet of His Companions
Electra Tex. - June 17, Yesterday afternoon, Howard Proud and eight other young men went to a small tank, on the Bear farm, about five miles north of this place, to take a refreshing plunge. Young Proud was the first to enter the water and he swam only about fifteen or twenty feet when he sank. He came to the surface and sank again. This was repeated seven times and he sank to rise no more.
His companions thought at first he was diving and were not alarmed. Later they thought there must be something wrong, but only one of them could swim at all and he was afraid to attempt to rescue his friend. About two hours later other help was secured and his body was recovered.
The fact that each time young Proud came to the surface, he was exactly in the same position, with his hands slightly raised, leads to the supposition that he must have been cramping. This is also confirmed by the fact that he was unable to speak and call for help.
The body was taken to the home of George Proud, the boy's father, where funeral arrangements are being made. The deceased was about 21 years of age and came from Aurora Nebraska last February.
|Pat LaCroix||Blair graves in Arborville Cemetery|
You were so kind enough to take pictures of a few of my Blair relatives in the Arborville Cemetery. Thank you sooo much. But now need to ask, when weather permits, can you please check for a stone for Lloyd Evans Blair, son of John Henry (Jr) and Mary Elizabeth (Plessinger) Blair? It would be very much appreciated.
