Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've recently started researching family history. I've found that it is a long and tedious project but will be well worth it in the end. The families that I am researching are Martin, Bletscher, Hansen, and Rasmussen. If you should have any information pertaining to these family it would be much appreciated for you to pass along. Thank you!

RE: Elizabeth Oppenlander
Hi Brandi,

Based on US Census records, she was married to Norman Oppenlander. Sorry I don't have more detail than that - I am not related.

Good luck in your research,

RE: Thomas M Martin and Mary Daily Martin
I am sorry I am not related to the Martins nor do I have any information on them. I merely added the names to Find A Grave because I was researching in Gage County and ran across a listing for this cemetry. Catherine

RE: Bletschers
Well, I'll wait until you have a handle on how everything works, but it really is pretty simple. Just let me know when you are ready for the Bletschers and I will transfer them.

I have genealogical websites for Clay and Dickinson counties. There is probably not much on them that you don't already have on the Bletschers, but here is the URL: for Clay County. Try both "Bletscher" and "Bletcher" in the search engines, as some records had the latter spelling. Also check the 1900 and 1918 plat maps on the site--Christian Bletscher lived in Sec. 32, Gill Twp. I noticed that one or more of the Bletscher girls served as pall bearers at the 1899 funeral of my g-granduncle Downs' little girl. They were probably schoolmates of the little one's older sisters.

You can access the Dickinson Co. site from the Clay Co. site, if you want to visit it, too.

Roy J. Martin

Roy was a member of the Company I, 3rd Battalion, 311th Regiment, 78th Division. He died of wounds received in battle. You need to obtain the IDPF (Individual Deceased Personnel File) on him. This should have records indicating what date he was injured, extent of injuries and treatment and much more information including the family relative who had his remains returned to the states. He was originally buried in the Henri Chapelle Cemetery in Belgium. His army serial number is 37489914. The following web site will tell you what to do.

Individual Deceased Personnel File

For a unit history, use the following link to obtain a PDF copy of the Combat Journal. Roy's name is listed in the deceased section, not with his company. That is just how they did things in the Army. 78th Division research

Scroll down to 311th Combat Journal and view/download this book. It is the history of the 31tth Regiment.

Once you determine the date he was wounded in action, let me know and I can send the after action reports for that time period that may help.

Good Luck

Roy James Martin
I have linked him to his mother, Katherine. I sent a message to the contributor of Katherine's memorial to correct the B to her maiden name - Bletscher. Roy's grandmother, Rebecca is my gr gr aunt - on the Mangus side.

Hi Brandi!

I am not related to the Bletschers--they were friends and neighbors of my family in Clay Co. I am related to the Elsassers, the family that Sophia Bletscher married into.

I would be happy to transfer all the Bletschers I have in Greenridge Cemetery (that is where most of my folks are buried, too) if you would want to manage them. That way you can add any other info you want. If you have photos to add I would love to see those, too.

Welcome to Findagrave!
