Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have deep ancestry roots in Nemaha County, Nebraska. My g-g-g grandfather, Church Howe, was one of the first pioneers and settlers of the area. He was instrumental in the layout and design of Auburn, NE. He was a state senator, V.P and Director of the Misssouri-Pacific Railroad, and U.S. Ambassador to Sheffield, Eng., Palermo, Italy, and Antwerp, Belgium. Despite his worldly travels, Church Howe called Auburn his home. He, along with his son Herbert Rhodes Howe, owned Walnut Grove Stock Farm in Nemaha County. I live in Calif. and am indebted to this site for the efforts of your photo volunteers for helping me piece together the puzzle of my ancestry. Thank You!

Howe's in Bedford Cemetery
Hi Char,

Yes, I happen to have photo's for Albert C., Josephine (His wife) and Frank Howe, all buried in Bedford Cemetery. I was going to make memorials for them too, but guess I just have not gotten around tuit yet.... So if you want to do enter them yourself, just request photo's, and let me know, and I will be happy to post them for you..

Will also take your photo's in Sheridan, the next time we are there, unless someone beats me to it first.

Hope All is well, Kathy

Howe's in Sheridan Cemetery
Hi Char,

Was wondering if you would be kind enough to post a photo request for Barton & Mary for me. It helps me to keep track of how many Photo Requests I post.

Mamie Howe - Sheridan
Good Morning Char,

Have added my photos to Mamie Howe's Memorial page. Per your write-up on her, it looks like Barton Church Howe and John Sedgewick Howe who married Florence are her son's. So that would only leaves Mary F. Howe (1881-1958). Your write-up's are all very well down, and very informative. You really are doing a very nice job and are doing your relatives proud. Let me know when you want the rest of the photo's entered.
