|Bio and Links|
Beth (Jorgensen) Sparrow living in Polk County, Nebraska. Have photos and information on the following surnames: My father's line: Hanks, Fields, Jorgensen, Foster, Lindsay in Nebraska, Illinois, Germany and Denmark. |
My mother's line: Seggerman, Regnier, Junker, Michels, Barber, Sickmon in Nebraska and Illinois, Germany, France, and back to England thru Mayflower passengers.
Have photos and some information on my husband's family: His father's line: Sparrow, Foresman, Richart, Hubbard from Illinois and back east. Currently trying to gather records for my husband's Richart line back to the Mayflower.
His mother's line: Patterson, Thompson, Waterman, Smith and Krieg from Illinois and eastern states.
I also have researched my step-mother-in-law's family: Smith, Steward, Flick, Hill, Hughes, Whitacre, Cross and Glass from mainly Illinois, Indiana and east.
Please see my virtual cemeteries for specific relatives in these lines, and please contact me if you are related to any of these families. I like getting in touch with distant cousins.
Let me know if you want me to transfer someone so you can add more info to a relative. If someone is not my relative, I will usually transfer. Please state your relation in your requests for transfer.
Polk county cemetery info came from the cemetery or from the city/cemetery records. Polk county marriage info comes from the clerk's office at the county courthouse.
I am an avid cemetery photographer fulfilling requests in Polk county and trying to photograph all cemeteries in Polk county (where I live). I will add partial obituaries; I will not add living (surviving) relatives of recent deaths.
IF you use my photos in an online tree, PLEASE give credit by saying "courtesy of Beth Sparrow". It's very annoying to see your own photo in an Ancestry tree with no credit given. And you KNOW it's your photo because the bird poop is in the same place.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
For the wonderful transfer of my 3rd great grandparents to our care.
I appreciate you taking the time to make their memorials and photograph their families cemetery stones.
If I can ever do a payback please let me know. If there are any of my memorials you would like please let me know be happy to share.
I see you are looking for the location of Henry Klaurence burial.
The Wyuka Cemetery index site is
The index does not even have Josephine Klaurence listed. Even though she is on the cemetery stone with her daughter Elizabeth Young. Elizabeth is on the index. I will call on Tuesday to see if they can look into it.
Thank you for all you have done.

Dear Ms Sparrow,
Thank you so much for permitting the use of your photos and I am acknowledging your generosity in each one. I expect most of them will be Hawley/Hoffer descendants in Nebraska.
|Richard Weide||RE: August Ferdinand Carlson|
I am concluding that he is the first-born of Charles (Carl) H Carlson and Ida Louise Anderson based on:
a) 1900 US census showing the family there, with August F being the oldest child, and called a "son" in that census
b) The "Jones Family Tree" in Ancestry.com which also shows August F as the first-born child in 1878, and the marriage of his parents in 1877
I don't see any other way that August F. could be listed in the 1900 Census with this family, and called a "son", except to be born to Charles H and Ida.
Hope this helps.

Hello ~ I am having difficulty locating Lewallen Harris' wife Evelyn and I'm wondering if there might be a clue on the lefthand side of the gravemarker you posted for Lewallen. This is a case where a photo of the entire stone could be quite helpful. Any help you might give would be greatly appreciated ~ Jo C
