Bio and Links
Bio Photo Omaha, NE. I have been doing ancestry research on my family since around 1998. I started with very little to go on back then when there wasn't much information. Times have sure changed over the past 10 years or so. I have added pictures and gravemarkers when ever I can to make it eaiser for others to see who their ancestors are and where they came from.
Please cite any photos that you use on other internet sites as follows: Find a Grave contributor Susan Benson #47622040

RE: Timothy Whipple
Thank you looks like we're cousins, though quite distant!
I have looked for Timothy in the DAR database of Revolutionary War patriots but cannot find him there. He was certainly the right age to have participated. The photo of his grave on appears to have a DAR symbol next to it. Do you have any evidence of his service?

RE: Timothy Whipple
Thanks for replying - sorry it took me this long to get back to you. We are talking about the Timothy Whipple b. 1723 and d. 1796?
I'm descended through his son John Whipple and his wife Basmoth Hutchins. Any chance you're in that line? I'd love to share research with someone else in the family.

RE: Prospect Hill Cemetery
No but you added about 20 photos for the memorials that I had set up.

RE: Timothy Whipple
Great news thanks! Do you recall where you found that information? I'm now very interested in the Whipples.

Timothy Whipple
I am just beginning to research the Whipple line. I am descended from Timothy's son John, and John's daughter Emeline, who married Oliver Dennett Kimball. I'd be happy to share any information I have on that line, if it interests you.
Do you know if Timothy Whipple served in the Revolutionary War? He may have been a little too old, and son John probably too young, but it's worth looking into.
I already have one Revolutionary patriot through the Kimball line, but would like to find others.
I'm in Los Angeles, CA. I began family research several years ago, let it sit for a while and now have picked it up again since I've retired.

You are welcome. If there are relatives or others you are looking for, let me know and I can check the names for you.

RE: Catherine & Stephen Kesler
Happy to do it. I was getting some other photos nearby. I do not know the family and will transfer any you want to manage.

RE: Sarah Cornelison Kesler
The Walnut Hill Burial book shows only five Kesler and nine Kessler graves in the four cemeteries (i.e. Cedar Lawn, Memorial Park, Ridgewood and Walnut Hill) so the fact the markers for Catherine and Stephen Kesler are nearby suggested to me that I at least let you know of their presence and location. The time of death seemed to tie in with the others too. Hattie and John Kessler are in section 09 and their deaths are from about the same time period as well; John died in 1914. Sarah is in section 08. Sarah and L. are shown as Kessler in the book.

Sarah Cornelison Kesler
Did you know there is another person buried beside Sarah? This additional grave is unmarked according to cemetery records but shows "L. Kessler" [sic] is also buried in section 08, lot 077, grave 3. The record has no death or burial date but it shows burial #2670 for "L." and #2671 for Sarah. Did she perhaps die in childbirth? There are also two more Kesler graves in section 08; they are perhaps 50 yards away. See Catherine (d. 1925) and Stephen (d. 1917) if you are interested. I will create memorials for them. I am not related and do not know the family, just a volunteer.
