Bio and Links
I am a professional genealogist and have been doing genealogy research for over 31 years. The family lines I have extensively researched have been Seth Martin, Jabez Ham, Johann Jacob Frisch, Christian Klemm, Johan Lorenz Schenk, Wiles, Barnett, Bushnell, James Dempster, Judy Upham, and many others. I have finalized my research by completing books on 7 of the above family members. As you know research is really never finished. I enjoy helping others to trace their past. Instead of just entering names and dates like many do, I try to enter information about that person and link family members together. This helps when someone is trying to locate an ancestor. If I can't locate the family members, then I do enter just the dates. I also believe in keeping family with family so if there is someone that you want transferred who is a family member, just ask and I will be glad to do so.

Feel free to share/copy any of my info or pictures.

Are you familiar with GenealogyBank? They have digitized the Omaha World Herald, and there are lots of hits on Vandecar, some with a Loup City byline.

I found a small mention of the family today.

From the St. Paul Phonograph, May 30, 1884, Elba News column -
"Mr. and Mrs. Howard Vandecar are at present stopping at Grand Island, but we understand have no intention of remaining there permanently."

Herbert Vandecar
Sorry, I don't know about Herbert's death. Hopefully, as more volunteers enter memorials and obits, his burial place will be revealed.

Brashear / Michela
Hi Martin,
Just so you know my Aunt Clara Belle Brashear Michela and cousin Betty Jane Michela Meyers ashes will be laid to rest with Uncle Johnnie John Henry Michela later this year. Not sure if you are related but can eventually give you more information if needed. Have been working on the family for 14 years.

Grimm Info
I noticed that you've added information to some of my family members. I think that's great, and is much appreciated!
(For example, T.O. Grimm #97272636)
The information appears to be from possibly a single source. I am wondering what that source is, and if it's readily available.
Thank you again!

Photo request - Joseph Davis
I thought you might want to know there are several more Davis graves beside that of Joseph. I added memorials for Ada, Fred R., John P., Lora, Maie, and Theodore. Most died in the 1920s, one in the 30s and one in the 40s. I do not know the family.

Thank You for the Information on Sarah Davis Nevius - I'm still working on Raritan Cemetery. Any others, let me know.
