Bio and Links
Bio Photo In appreciation for what others have done and all the hard work that happens here I will try to put back as much as I have received. I will try to add names and pictures from my own area. If you find one of your relatives that I have entered and the information is incorrect or you do not want it on this site, please contact me and we will correct or remove as quickly as possible. You also have my permission to use any of the pictures I have put on this site for your own personal family use. No need to ask. If you want a family member's memorial transferred to you, just ask.

If I am able to fulfill requests for names, photos or other additional information, please feel free to request.

Happy hunting to everyone of you who are out there searching and trying to fill in all the open spaces in family history. And, thank you to all the hard working volunteers that make this site so great.

RE: Edward Arnold Bruhn
Hi Shirley,

Would you tell me which memorial has the incorrect posting and I will make the change?

M.A. Gilmore
RE: J F Blessen
Thank you so much. I will certainly follow your suggestion. As for the Gilmore family you mentioned, I'm not aware of any of our Gilmore line being in Nebraska but I'll be glad to check on the possibility. My Gilmore research goes back to Francis Gilmore, b. abt. 1730; d. abt., 1811 in York District, SC.

Memorial# 34965678 If you aren't related to this Blessen family, would you transfer this memorial to me, please. Johann Friedrich Blessen was the brother of my grandfather. If you would rather not transfer the memorial, I'll be glad to send additional bio info for you to add. Thanks, Maude Ann

Thank you, Shirley, for the newspaper article on their deaths. I have posted it to the memorials.

that was very nice of you Shirley. Actually the right thing would have been for the contributor, as you know, FIRST to do a search for those names and contact the contributor to let them know where they were found. Doesn't always work that way. you are kind. thanks

RE: Sarah Anson
It turns out there is already an entry for Florence Root, with a picture of the stone. If you look, you will see that it is just a different side of Sarah's stone. I have added an entry for Sylvestor Root, and linked the three people appropriately.

If you want to transfer the entries to me, that's ok. But I don't think I have any further need to edit them. So it's up to you.

RE: Sarah Anson
Florence is mentioned on a different side of the stone from Sarah. I have a photo, but it's not very readable due to the age and wear on the stone. When I visited it, I could just make out the inscription but wasn't able to make a readable photo.

As you suspected, Sarah (Lord) Anson, wife of Leonard Anson, was my 2nd great-grandmother. Frank Anson (their son) was my great-grandfather.

BTW: Sarah was born Jul 23, 1816 in Genessee County, New York. The family homesteaded in Creston in 1872.
