Bio and Links
I have been involved in genealogy since the mid-seventies. It was just fairly recently that I started contributing to FIND A GRAVE. I have added memorials to FIND A GRAVE for countless people, most of whom I am not related. My agenda in doing so is simply to honor the deceased and provide documentation and assistance for to those wanting to locate the final resting places of their ancestors and others. Beyond the information and visuals gleaned from locating burials sites, I also contend that such an act can also provide a closure that many find comforting. I am excited when a family member contacts me to transfer a memorial to them, and am sometimes saddened when more requests aren't made. My time on FIND A GRAVE is sometimes sporadic, so please don't be discouraged if I don't respond immediately.

I do presentations on, and occasionally lead tours of the Red Cloud Cemetery, as well as some of the rural cemeteries in Webster County. I have spent thousands of hours documenting parts of the history of Red Cloud and Webster County, Nebraska and truly appreciate how a site such as FIND A GRAVE provides a platform for us to honor and memorialize those who have gone before.

One of my most recent projects involved creating the first phase of a walking tour that depicts earlier days of the downtown area of Red Cloud, Nebraska. It is accessible via QR codes located on the historic lamp posts and can also be found on the website It is also accessible through various other local websites. Currently about 25%of what has been planned has been completed. If you have ancestors associated with Red Cloud or are just interested in history in general, I encourage you to check it out.

Besides my families and those of my husband's, I mostly concentrate on families associated with the southern two-thirds of Webster County, and personalities associated with the novels of Willa Cather.

Cecil Yost
Hi Suzi ~ I've added your suggestions to Cecil Yost's memorial in Red Cloud. Let me know if you see anything you'd prefer read differently, or if you would like a transfer of the memorial. He is not a Yost related to our family, it turned out.
Have a good day, Sheri Ross

RE: Burial Location for Howard Edward MULLEN
Uncle Phil's family lived on the old original Clark and Sarah Mullen homestead (check for images of the homestead papers in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) website) for many years. As I remember it was located in Cheyenne County south of Kit Carson County (Seibert located in this county) east of Colorado state highway 79. I really don't know where Howard Edward is buried. The county seat is Kit Carson and is the closest town to the homestead. No Mullen shows in Cheyenne County on Find A Grave. He could have been buried on the homestead. Phil's and Lottie's kids should remember that if it took place. He wouldn't show on any EPA cemetery survey's as those were done across America in the 1930' to make work for people. I don't have email addresses for the rest of the kids alive now.

Blue Baby is a congenital birth defect of the heart where there's a hole (not completely filled during gestation) between the ventricles with blood going out in one and blood coming back in the other. The mixing of the returning blood (blue) with the blood going out (red)gives the skin a bluish/purplish color, thus Blue Baby. It's fixed surgically these days soon after birth, usually with no complications then or later in life.

By the way, I found out this week, Esther Frances Mullen Slawson's husband, Olen, died on 25 Apr 2016 in Aurora, Arapahoe County, County, (eastern suburb of Denver). Some info in on him. In searching on Esther, I found out they were divorced, she remarried, then divorced that fellow. I don't know if Esther and Olen remarried or not. Esther has lived in Aurora and could still be. I have a ten year old letter from her and she included a photo of my Dad, Kenneth, Max Mullen and here taken in the mid to late 1980's at Mullen reunion in Wyoming (probably Laramie). I pulled out some old paper files I had stored and found it. I'll do some photo scanning and cropping for all three and add them to the entries for them in my public tree. Good pictures of all three.

RE: CLARK Family
A glimpse that was never talked about. I suppose keeping quiet was typical for that generation. My 91 year-old aunt is fascinated to learn more about this family history. I'd be very interested to know if there is any historical records of my family at the county clerks office.

Tony's obit says that he lived in the 1st Ward. I can't find any ward maps of Red Cloud. What defined the 1st Ward during the 1930's?

Thanks Suzi. I found some old records that I acquired in 1984. I just updated Anna Clark's memorial & will soon post Tony's obituary from an actual newspaper clipping that a distant cousin provided me in 1983. I'm guessing the obit was from the Red Cloud paper.

Oh...please do allow me to take care of those children that I never had any knowledge of.

Thanks again for all that you've done to take care of their memorials!
