Bio and Links
Bio Photo Director of Historical Interpretation at Stuhr Museum LOVES to work on genealogy in "spare" time.

Family connections include: Wilderman, O'Dell, Craft, Anderson, Aymond, Couvillion and on my husband's side: Cynova, Rohatsch, Duraczynski, Greenwalt, and DOZENS more!

If I have made mistakes in any of the memorials please let me know and I am more than happy to correct them.

If there is a memorial you want transferred to your care, just let me know - I am happy to transfer, as per Findagrave rules. PLEASE use the "Edit" tab in the upper right hand corner area of the memorial to make your request as this includes all the information I need to make this happen.

Working to enter all of the recorded Hall County burials. Most of the small non Grand Island graves have been entered, and as time allows, will work on photo verification. Working on the GI cemeteries as time allows. If the names and locations are posted, it will be easier for everyone to take pictures!

Hi Kay: I'm sorry I sent that photo request. It was plainly written that the grave is unmarked. I just over-looked it. Thanks and hope you did not spend a lot of time searching it out.

kay is there any
chance you are in Grand Island and could go look for her obituary for me? I think I might have her husband Patrick O'Keefe here in Rapid City SD, he was a miner here and an ancestry tree says that a Patrick was married to Emma Reed, Pat died here May 9,1940, he was poor , he was in the County Poor Farm in the 1940 census, his obit is small and says virtually nothing, the 1940 census says he was born about 1855 in NY. He is widower then. I can't find him in any other census but now that I know he might have been in Grand Island I will look there for her and maybe he is there too at some point, maybe she never came here with him, preferring Grand Island? You can email me if you might help

Find A Grave Change
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent edits to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you.
Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names / dates / places / plot #s.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section or do linking.
