Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I sit back and reflect on the significant events and important aspects in my life, one major theme emerges, which is a loving and supportive family, that honors and treasures our heritage, actively preserves our family history and encourages accurate research to put the pieces of the puzzle of our families past.

I am, Betty L. Schmidt, a sixth generation native Coloradoan. I am the 3rd great-granddaughter of Adam Schwab, the 2nd great-granddaughter of Johann Adam Michael Meyer and Daniel M. Baker. I am the great granddaughter of Bertha and Emil Schmidt.
I am 2nd great-granddaughter of William Eliphalet and Melvira Millicent Holbrook and the great-granddaughter of Mary Melvira and William Edgar Taylor. In addition, I am a direct descendent of William Bradford, Governor of the Plymouth Colony and a passenger on the Mayflower.

I am a retired central office administrator, teacher, genealogist and poet, who lives in two places. My permanent residence is Fountain, Colorado, but winter in Zihuatanejo, Mexico.

RE: Thanks so much
You are very welcome for the photos. After reading your bio of Helmuth I was surprised to see a marker for him next to Bertha. When the excellent staff at Crown Hill told me he was buried on July 10, 1947 it was a lot of things including poignant that he had been transferred so as to be next to her. I added a picture of the grave marker to his page.

if there is anything else I can help you with please let me know.

Holbrook, John
I went to Brookside Cemetery today looking for John Holbrook's grave. Websites say he is located in the Old Grounds section which is located in the very back of the cemetery. He is suppose to be located in lot 18 next to Capt Tilley Richardson who is in lot 19. There is a stone there which I have a picture of but the stone is unreadable. Do you want me to post that stone? I also took a picture of both the unreadable stone and Tilley Richardson's stone. The website shows John Holbrook, located in Old Ground, Lot 18, 1789-1829, died June 11th.

Karl Charles Smith
Find a Grave's definition of famous person is "well known outside of his or her local community". Why don't you consider nominating Carl Charles Smith as famous?He too was in the Nebraska Legislature Go to his memorial and click on edit next to transfer management. Then click famous at the bottom of the page.

Julius Smith
The Find a Grave's definition of famous person is "well known out side of his or her local community". I have noticed former several state senators are "famous"in Find a Grave. Why don't you consider nominating Julius Smith for a famous individual. It is easy to do. Go to his memorial and click on edit next to transfer management. Click famous at the bottom of the page and wait several days and see what happens

RE: Fred Knuth
Why don't you establish the memorials I have more then enough to keep me busy, and it looks like your more family then I am, I just happened to be taking a stroll looking for any one on the list of requests. (We had a fairly tough winter and I needed to get out, but you being in Colorado I have to assume that yours wasn't to easy either.)
A request isn't necessary but let me know when the memorials are established. I don't regularly check the requests any more for any cemetery.

Next to Fred is I believe is his wife Rosa 1846 - 1923 and most likely their son William 1871 - 1910.
Yours, not yours? You want or don't want?
