Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I discovered this website, I was determined to try to be a part in bringing faces, stories and history to the people who have passed before us. My father and grandfather both kept diary books and left me with the sense that their ancesters needed to be remembered. I have done Genealogy research for many years on several names within my family. I have been entering cemetery information about others outside my family also. I find that this website is a valuable source when tracing ancestry so memorials of loved ones long past is important to me. I have found contributors to be very helpful and cooperative as I will try to be to others asking for information, transfers or even photographs if possible. Please use the edit tab to notify me of any changes or additions to a specific memorial. By the way, the picture to the left is of me (taken a while back.)

G Elder
Wyuka Cemetery
Mr. Donahoo,
I wanted to check with you on this before I changed anything... I have a photo for a stone for 'Annie Millar Landis' 1866-1913. I believe this may really be Find A Grave Memorial# 113205013 for Hannah Landis. Annie is next to Frank and the only stone I see with 1913. I have found no Hannah, but I wanted to check with you before I assumed Hannah was Annie. Do you have any guidance for me? I do not see an 'Annie' listed under Millar or Landis.
Thanks for any help,
Gretchen Elder

RE: Wyuka cemetery
I believe that most of your entries were earlier but I chose the entry in each case with more information/spelling etc that matched the headstone. There were quite a few. I found these searching for 'missing'photos today, only to find that duplicates were the real issue. Thanks for the note. I appreciate it!

Is there someway that you and Jim can merge the two memorials for Helen.

James Sedlacek
Dear Lloyd,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the National Directory of the 355th Infantry, published long ago, James Sedlacek was also a member of this unit.

I'm not sure where I'm heading with my project, but I have ambitions of publishing something someday. Is it permissible to use your photograph of the grave of James Sedlacek in any future publications?

Thank you!

Dear Lloyd,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the National Directory of the 355th Infantry, Robert L Jordan is a member of this unit, which is confirmed by his gravestone.

I'm not sure where my research is taking me at this point, but I want to think I will one day publish something. My I get your permission to use your photograph should I do so? This is for Find A Grave Memorial# 44285686.

Thank you!

Sr. Theresa Stodolny (Sr. Poppy)
I am trying to find some family of Sister Poppy and wonder if you know of any of the Stodolny and if you could help me find one? Sister was a close friend of my family and I would dearly love a picture of her...

I just checked my email and see that you have fulfilled a photo request for me. They are really nice, clear photos. Thanks for your time and energy in driving to the cemetery and locating the grave. I appreciate your kindness.

Kate Sharron Boganowski
Find A Grave Memorial# 51871862
Kate Sharron Boganowski

Apparently this gravestone of (Kate Sharron) is shared with her grandson, Thomas A. Boganowski, with Find A Grave Memorial# 51871814.

This obituary I found via the Omaha Public Library
states this :

Note: I do not understand why the date of death is August 2, 1952 vs. published date of September 4, 1952.

Omaha World-Herald (Published as MORNING WORLD-HERALD) - September 4, 1952

SHARRON-Mrs. Kate, age 80 years.
6008 P St., August 2, 1952. Survived
by son, Robert J. McClellan; daughter.
Mrs. Thomas R Boganowski; brothers, Jake and William Knight; sisters, Mrs. B. H. Ritterholz, Mrs. Mary Cook, Mrs. Frank Blankman;
8 grandchildren; 8 great-granchildren.

Funeral Thursday, 8:30 a.m. Brewer
Korlsko Chapel to Holy Ghost Church,
9 a.m. Committal, Saint Mary Magdalene
Cemetery. Rosary at chapel Wednesday;
at 8 p.m.

Final note: I did check the 1952 calendar and
September 4, 1952 is a Thursday.

Therefore, may I suggest you drop the Boganowski.
If you have you will notice that she is in the 1910 & 1920 census with husband, Ernest W Sharron along with their daughter Ruth M. In the 1930 census she is living with her daughter, Ruth Bogauswski and her husband, Thomas - no children. Kate Sharron marital status is Widowed in 1930. Kate Sharron is in the 1940 census with her daughter, Ruth and husband Thomas, along with 4 grandchildren of Thomas A., Catherine, Norbert, and Francis.

Thank you!

Minnie Show and John Light
Thanks for the transfers, Lloyd. Even though the surnames are different these are very closely related to my Lydick line. John Light was a brother of my step grandmother Martha Jane (Light) Lydick. My real grandmother died at only 25. Minnie Show was a half cousin created by the Civil War as her grandfather was killed in the Civil War and her grandmother remarried to my great grandfather. An interesting weave.
