Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family history on the lempka/lempke/peschel side. We have limited information, if you have any information to share, please drop me a line, we can exchange notes!

You may use any of the headstone photos that I have posted and information, no need to ask.

I have added headstones of some people I do not know for the sake of other people who are also researching their family tree and with limited information I could gather off the internet. If you would like a transfer, please hit the edit button and leave me a msg!

Gladys Lux
She would have been likely buried next or near to her parents--the other two Luxs. It is possible that her grave was never marked. She was single and the last in the family. Sadly she was quite well known as a regional artist, owned much property in Lincoln and has the Lux Arts Center in Lincoln named after her. Thanks for looking though.

RE: Frances Mary Josephine Lempka
The Lempka's are mostly from the Johnson County, Tecumseh area. I dont remember where the obit.came from but probably from the Tecumseh Chieftain news paper, Tecumseh, NE.

RE: Harrington descendants
Don't know how much I can help organizing what you find in researching. I haven't made it much past the researching. What I used to prove lineage for the DAR:
Abraham Harrington's pension application. That was interesting to read. Found it on heritage quest website.
Next, I found a land record listing his children. Microfilm came from family search website. catalog section, Shaftsbury,VT
Others were newspaper obits for family in Nebraska, found at state archives.
Census records - Ancestry website.
Death certificates - State records.

Hi Chris,

Sorry but I have no pictures on either Thomas or Kittie. Kittie Gage Scarborough is my Great Aunt and have been waiting for someone to start sharing some picture but so far no luck.

Harrington descendants
Good to hear from another Harrington descendant. I am a descendant of their son Clark Harrington. Sorry, I am not on ancestory. I only use that site through our public library if looking up information.
I had to collect information showing the family lineage when applying for DAR. Used Abraham Harrington to join, Electa's husband. Would be happy to share.
