Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana

RE: Nichol
You are very welcome! I took some other Nichol stones, as well, so you may want to check them out.

Thanks for the edit for Kenneth Sorensen
Very much appreciated! I didn't add anything new, but I cleaned up the "looks" of the memorials.

RE: Schulze
Few people in the early days of the 50's knew the effects from the exposure to radiation. I doubt the connection had yet been made. I was told that by the early 60's, when the family started to ask questions, they were told that the records were sealed until the late 70's. Then came the matter of military records lost in the fire at a St Louis records center. (The St Louis issue is still brought up today for even the most simple requests for WW-II Military Records.

By the 70's, my aunt had long since moved on with her life. She re-married, started a new family, moved out of state, etc. She was reluctant to open old wounds by pursuing the issue.

My Dad, while he often spoke of the days when his brothers were young and alive, never spoke of their deaths. It was always difficult to get information from him on that topic. What little I was told came from other members of the family.

Thanks again!

Thank You!
Loren,

Thank you for the kind attention you have provided for the grave of my uncle, Don Schulze. He was one of two uncles I never got to know.

Buried near by is his youngest brother, Burt a veteran of the Air Corp who passed away during the 50's, and my father, T.J. 'Dutch' Schulze, a WW-II Navy Veteran, and long time Omaha Resident who passed away around 2009. The rest of the plot are the graves of my grandparents, and other relatives.

With regard to Burt, the youngest of the three Schulze Brothers; During his time in the Air Force, he was among the US Service Men present in the trenches during nuclear weapons testing in Nevada during the 1950's. He died from cancer a few short years later at a very young age.

The names of both Donald and Burt are listed on the wall at Memorial Park in Omaha.

Again, thank you for your thoughtfulness.

Respectfully,
Randal R. Schulze
Kansas City, Missouri

RE: frank Rhoades
It could be but Yankee Hill cemetery said he is not buried there and they thought he was really buried at what was the state hospital. They both were the same age and died the same day. So I guess I will have to do more searching. Thank you!

RE: Frank Rhoades
The family said it is him. The name is often missed spelled. So I have no doubt it says Rhoades. Is there a stone on his grave? Thank you for your quick reply! I think Find-A-Grave is wonderful! Thank you for all your work on here!
