Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Gertrude Thelen 116487378
In answer to the question on this page: Yes, Gertrude married Nick Nichols after Thelen died.
Her Social Security death record is Gertrude Nichols. I don't know where Nichols died. I also don't know why she didn't put that name on her monument! Jeanne W.

Thank you for transferring my Great Grandma and Grandpa Miller. I was wondering if you could transfer my Grandma and Grandpa Miller (Patricia and Richard Miller). My Aunt Julie Miller. My Grandpa Frank Flatt. And my Great Grandma Dora Lockard. I have a lot of family there in Osceola and Shelby. When I get a chance to look at my family genealogy paperwork I will let you know if there are anymore.
Thank you for your time and help.

Memorial transfers
I have transferred the memorials you requested. Pardon the previous message. I was multi-tasking.

Hi, Beth,

I searched today for several graves at Lincoln Memorial Park in Oswego, IL. Even though the office gave me the info: Section 26, Lot 36, Grave 3, I couldn't find it.

I will go back again soon and give it another try, as there were others in the cemetery that I couldn't find as well.

RE: Find A Grave Correction: Robert Vaughn
You wrote: The index has been transcribed by myself and is here:
The record is at the courthouse. I could get a scan of it, or you could call the courthouse.
I do have a scan of the index; I could email that if you wish.

Could you please get a scan of the record and email it to me? I had no idea he married this person. It would be very interesting to see this. I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
-Doug Vaughn.

Hi Beth,
My name is Kasie and I am the great granddaughter of Eliza Mae Miller. She also has a sister Alice Miller (Find A Grave Memorial# 92196681). I can fill in the blanks with the rest of the Miller family and beyond. I would also like to be the one that handles her memorial. Please contact me if you have any further questions. Thank you!
