My father created a monster when he introduced me to family history. My history teachers would be so surprised that I finally "Get it"!
I have exhausted the Lieding family history which begins in 1598 in Thurigen, Germany. The Stockhorst family in Germany, Nebraska, California,Colorado and New Mexico. The family still owns the original Stockhorst Hof in Germany just outside of Hannover.
I am tracing the Henderson family from Iowa through Missouri and Tennessee and back into North Carolina circa 1777.
I am tracing the Lush family from Nebraska to Rhode Island circa 1777.
I am tracing the Wadsworth family from Nebraska to Connecticut in the 1600's.
I am tracing multiple Butterfield lines from Nebraska to Massachusetts in 1633.
I am tracing the Boelter family from Nebraska to Germany (Poland) circa 1600's.
In addition to these families - if a family was fortunate enough to marry into these families - I work on collecting family lines as far back as I can.
I enjoy Find-A-Grave as it is a valuable reference to confirm other sources.
Cousins I just wanted to check in, looks like we too are cousins from the Butterfield line. Would you be willing to transfer your Ickler Memorials? Rudolph Ickler (1854) was my GGGF. Rudolph->Frederick->Russell->Gene->me.
I photographed all of Venus/Enterprise and Walnut Grove last year. These cemeteries have both the Ickler and Buttefield relationships,have you been there?
William Clark Vorce Greetings-I live at Troy Mills, Iowa and trying to enter all I have and get rid of tons of stuff. I also got stung with genealogy and am relation to half the people here and so was my husband whom I lost about 6 months ago and I had heart surgery about month ago so need to get going again...I was wondering if you would transfer William Clark Vorce to me. His great granddaughter sent some history years ago. I was a Dudley so am relation to one of their kids. My number is 4492468. I hope to find where all went in Nebraska and also have lots of Butterfields at Troy that would like that web site... till later.
RE: Matej and Rozina Thank you very much. I have hit a road block where they are concerned for the last couple of years and I keep looking but I thought it was a dead end until you. You are a blessing thank you so so much.
Matej and Rozina Hi, I was wondering since you put Matej Hrbek memorial #64728302 and Rozina Safranek Hrbek memorial #64728356 together if you had anymore information on them. I have been working on my husband and sons genealogy and the Beran-Hrbek side has been so hard to find information on so when I found info here it was a wonderful surprise. I read your bio and was just wondering if you've ever come across any more info. They were born in Bohmen, Austria, I tease my husband that he's Bohemian, so it is really hard to go any farther back because all those areas are now Czech Republic and have changed countries multiple times. Thanks if you have any info and well this is a stab in the dark.
RE: Roy Cary My great-great grandmother was Rosannah Henderson Orr. (We believe her husband died when the family was in Missouri according to her daughter's obituary. However, we can't find any proof of that.For all we know, he may have just "left" the family!) Rosannah was a daughter of Joseph Henderson and Jane Pickens.
Roy Cary I added the information you had to his memorial. Thanks for sending it! It's always nice to know what happened to the young people.
I noticed you are researching the Henderson family. So am I. My great-great grandmother was a Henderson from Blount County, Tennessee. She moved with her family to Indiana, Missouri and later to Iowa where she raised her family.
RE: Butterfield Well great to know you distant cousin - you are absolutely right, I do descend from that same line as you! Sounds like you have done one heck of a lot of work on the Butterfields. Its such a gift of time & effort to share -- many are thankful for the few who do a lot of work! I'm assuming you already know about this Butterfield website, and even if not, it only goes back a tiny bit further, to Benjamin's birth in 1611 in England. http://www.usgennet.org/family/butterfield/index.htm But it has not been updated since midway through my Grandma's generation- James Franklin and Anna Groeling Butterfield are the last entry and only 4 of their children are listed (my grandma Iva Butterfield Brady is not). There IS a really nice picture of your Butterfield family including Edith and Edna...you may already have it. I go to O-Neill most every summer, so if you want any pictures from up that way, just let me know!
RE: Butterfield Not a problem. He was my great-grandfather. There is actually a Butterfield website that goes back to around the 1600's in England, and that is where it came from. Are you a Butterfield too?
