Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been playing genealogy since about 1988 when my brother Jon got me infected.
It is only now in 2010 that I have chosen Find A Grave to help share the results of our research. Information is of no value unless it's shared and it will be my pleasure to share any data I have, with anyone needing that information.
My ancestral families of the past 150 years were centered around south central and western Nebraska, arriving there from upstate New York and western Illinois. My wife's families, in the same period arrived in southwestern Nebraska from upstate New York or Germany.
Please let me know of any way I might assist you in your quest for family information.
This will be a work-in-progress which will probably never be finished.

Thanks for the transfers!
Jim, thanks so much for graciously transferring my husband's great-grandparents, Barbara and Samuel Rayer. It is very much appreciated and it was nice to visit with you via email - and always nice to run into another McCook native! Kim

RE: Pic Request of 3/24...
You're very welcome. I'm at the cemetery often, as my parents are buried there. In fact, I'll be there this weekend again. Chris

Fannie Brown # 54298668
Hi Jim,

Can you please transfer Fannie Brown #54298668 to me? She was the first wife of Louis F Eppich. Louis was the first child born to Maria Elisabeth Riegel and Christoph Adam Eppich. Louis and Fannie had two children. After Fannie's death, Louis married Jeannette A Becker. They are buried at Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, Denver County, Colorado, USA: Louis F Eppich # 154858500.

Thank you SOO much for all the transfers. My head started spinning today while I was working on the family group, both on Find A Grave and on the tree I created for the family.

It might take me a day or two to finish working on this branch of the family, but as soon as I am finished, I will be more than happy to transfer them back to you!

You memorial documentation made it easier for me to do my research! I really appreciate all you have done! In turn, I am able to help the genealogist in Sien, Germany. It feels so good helping others!

God Bless,

Christoph Adam Eppich # 54298662
Hi Jim,

I am researching the Eppich family, originally from the tiny German Village of Sien, for a genealogist in Sien. This genealogist has been instrumental in helping me trace my family in Germany, so I am thrilled to be able to help her!

I have already clicked on the edit tab to add information to several of the people on the Christoph Adam Eppich headstone, and was about to click on more, but I was wondering if it would be easier for you to transfer all the memorials on that one headstone to me, and then when I am finished adding details, I can transfer the memorials back to you.

Let me know.

Thanks, Maurene

John Dolan great grandmother worked on the TOM? Dolan farm around 1885 in Indianola, Ne. She was a German immigrant from Russia named Sophie Beck. She married my g grandfather Otis Coburn and they farmed north of Indianola and are both buried in the cemetery in Indianola, along with many family members. I got the Tom Dolan name from her OBIT and actually have an old photo that says Dolan on it, so I always assumed it was Tom, but perhaps she worked for John, not Tom, or there may have been a family connection?

Do you know if there was a Tom in the Dolan family in the Indianola area or would you know if John and his wife had a girl working for them around that time? Do you have a connection with the Dolan family? Perhaps they would recognize this photo. Thanks! Michelle Dunn

Richard S. O'Neil
Hi Jim,

I am researching my O'Neil line. It seems like you personally know Richard. S. O'Neil. His father is the brother of my husband's 3rd great grandfather. I am looking for photographs of that immediate family. Do you have any contact information for Richard & Isabel's children or other family members? Or, if you're not comfortable giving that out, I'd be happy to share my contact information for you to give to them. Thank you so much!

RE: Olson photos in Evergreen Cemetery
You are welcome. Send me a transfer and I will transfer them to you. I always take photos of all similar names. Spent two hours yesterday walking and searching. Was a beautiful day for being outside. So glad I found them for you.
