Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've worked in genealogy for the past 25 years and always love finding another piece to the puzzle.
It's great therapy and keeps the mind active and to make a family connection with someone else researching is frosting on the cake.
Find A Grave is a great site for beginners and pros
and to be able to put photos out there for others to see is a blessing.

Heinrich Alexander Koch Sr.
If you would like, I can transfer Heinrich Alexander Koch and his wife to you. I made the correction and added a link to Alexander Jr. seeing as his memorial belongs to someone else. I also requested a grave photo for both. Let me know...

RE: Vera Sybil Jones Hightower
Thank you. Do you know where Deborah Alice Brandon Jones is buried, and/or her dates of birth and death?

Vera Sybil Jones Hightower
I'm a bit puzzled about your note on this memorial. In the 1980s, Vera said her mother was Mary Alice Coffee. Could she have been mistaken?

RE: Smith Memorial
Each Find a Grave member has an ID (Yours is 47466487). Who ever created the memorial just clicks on the transfer option and enters the new number and transfers ownership. I think you'll find that most people who have simply cataloged a cemetery are very happy to have a memorial in the hands of a family member. Robert Smith is all yours ;)

Smith Memorial
Hi - I got a notice that you've sponsored the memorial for James Smith. Is this a family member? I'd be happy to transfer it to you if he is.

Koch-Cook Cemetery
Hi - if you look under "Cemetery Lookup", most of the Koch-Cook family have grave photos. The photos in Find A Grave taken at both the Koch-Cook Cemetery and Campbell Cemetery were NOT done by my cousin Judy, but by someone else. Judy and her husband did the photos for me and put them on a CD - they have never been published.

Also, did you get my information? If you share it with others, be sure to use the reference source:
Campbell Centennial Book Committee, Along and Beyond the Little Blue, (Campbell Centennial Book Committee, Campbell, NE). Be sure to add the title of the article and who wrote it, if noted, located at the end of the article. The research is mine, but the actual work is done by others and should be credited. Thanks!

Alexander Koch Sr.
Hi - yes, I do have information. There is quite a lot, so I will put it into a document and email it to you.

Heinrich Alexander Koch (Alexander Koch Sr.) and Anna Elisabeth Streck are both buried at the Koch Cemetery in Campbell, NE.

Heinrich Alexander Koch, b. 22 Dec 1851, Kolb, Russia; d. 14 Jul 1915, Campbell, NE; Father: Heinrich Michael Koch; Mother: Catharina Elisabeth Dietz (also buried in the Koch Cemetery)

Anna Elisabeth Streck, b. 10 Oct 1854, Walter, Russia; d. 20 May 1938, Campbell, NE; Father: Andreas Streck; Mother: Maria Catharina Michaelis (mother died in Kolb, Russia, no record on her Father as to his death).

I have a copy of the book "Along and Beyond the Little Blue", and it has a number of articles written by family members. I have them typed up and I will include them with all the information.

I hope this will help. I am more than happy to share whatever I have. Right now I'm working on translating the 1858 Kolb Census from the original documents, so give me a couple days to put the information together. I no longer have a kitchen table - it's my desk, and there are papers everywhere.

A few years ago, my cousin in Colorado photographed the entire Campbell Cemetery and Koch Cemetery. I have all the transcriptions, so I know your family is at the Koch Cemetery...Judi
