Bio and Links
Bio Photo Empty nester syndrome has left me lots of time to ponder the eternal question... who am I! I have always been interested in history and my family line, so I have jumped in head first into my ancestry! My paternal side of the family (Drevo) came to the US (Nebraska and Kansas) from Bohemia (Czech Republic) and my maternal side is well...US mutt, all from the OH and PA areas! (Irish, Scottish, English, Pennsylvania Dutch (ie: Germans who settled in PA and have their own, strange language!) name it, it's there!) I'm descended (maternal side)from the line who gave birth to George Washington, among other interesting people! My tree consists of some of the following names:

Paternal side: Drevo, Kubicek, Kasha, Shara, Podhrazsky, Novak, Svoboda, Dvorak, Cizek, Pracejl, Kalva, Titera, Bily, Kiml, Cespivo, Kysely, Mertl, Novotny, Tuma, Kolovrat, Voborsky.

Maternal side: Murdock, Halsted, Washington, Bell, Amspoker, Fordyce, Garard, Corbly, Kelley, Gillett, Rist, Nixson, Chestnut, Means, Medley, Hufty, Yerkes, Barclay, Cole, Bayard, Dade, Ruffcorn, Strickler, Butler, Twigdon, Jones, Townshend, Langhorne, Newcomer, Baumgartner, Leeper, Ramsey, Ferguson, Booher (orig: Poor), Bean, Carmichael, Pomeroy, McKnight, Gill, Gregg

My husband is of Spain (Basque) lineage who's ancestors settled in Mexico in the late 1500's.

I have experience researching the Mexican and Czech parish archives and I'm always looking for making connections with family so we can share info! The more eyes, the better!!! I live in Reno, Nevada.

RE: Sarah Haseltine Hale
I was in the neighbourhood and that cemetery really needed to be worked, sorry I didn't have more time to cover all of it. There are some very interesting stones there - like Sarahs. By 1771 most of the surrounding communities had moved to slate - but in this cemetery there are a lot of this older style that are more commonly seen in the 17th century. Some of them, like Sarahs, are well preserved - others not so much.

Glad you liked it.

Jose Bustamante
Just an FYI, Green Hills was established in 1948, so it is doubtful that this is the one you are looking for. This Jose died in 1984.

I've never seen any burials at Green Hills with death dates earlier than 1948, except for a few that were moved there from other cemeteries.

Just thought you might want to know this ahead of time.

The death date on this record entered by someone else has a date of August 6, 1907 which does not agree with yours.
If you have proof of your date, please let the other person know so they can correct the record.

RE: Sasek family
Not a relative; my philosophy is "No one should be forgotten". Since my husband and I have retired we enjoy going to cemeteries that others haven't been to. If I come across the Koslan or Kostlan name I will let you know.

Sasek family
Thanks for the parent links for Armida/Armeda's; they have been added. We only live about 40 miles from Hebron and this cemetery is our next project to take pictures of stones...where the weather warms up!!! Hope to be able to verify the spelling of her first and last name. Keep up the great job!!!

Have sent them. Not sure you know about the digital library Free to join. Just put the name into the search engine. Alberta has many pioneer books.
