Thank you for the clarification on the two cemeteries. Guessed your information was indeed true, but one never assumes.

RE: Jesse Love Memorial
Hi Barb~

I understand your concern over the Jesse Love Memorial. I was merely filling in information on the Memorial that had more complete information, and your memorial said Unknown, Unknown. I see you quickly added Census information after my message, but this still does not clear up the family. You have Lee Love connected to the wrong Mother. I will send the correct information to you so you can add it to your memorials. Maybe a better way to have the census information is to hot link it to and clean up the memorial page. I understand how troublesome some members can be with memorials. I certainly get my share of those ppl too. They seem to be more about numbers and less about accurate information or good quality pictures. I appreciate your help in this matter. Hopefully we can get this straightened out.

Thanks again

RE: Mrs. Macy #115637534
Hi Barb - Thanks for your note. I was at the cemetery and the caretaker showed me the original card for her. I wish I had taken a picture of it because I wrote down Mary also. But it was hand written and I think someone may have been questioning whether it was Mrs. Macy or Mrs. Mary. I have had that happen with others in my clan, especially in the old census'. I have since found her parents and a younger sister. Sister Harriet Conley was living with Milton & Eliza Jane Macy in the 1850 census in Warren County, Indiana. Then when I found Milton & Eliza Macy in the 1885 census in York, things came together. They had 3 children and I have found 2 of them. On the trail of the other, son Charles who was with them in the 1885 census in York. Thanks for helping me identify this one and also thanks for the transfer. Without you creating the memorial, I would have never found her. Bill.

Would you please tell me how you connected this name with John Watts Mercer? I thought his wife was Alma Jane Arment according to the DAR file. If anyone has an answer, please contact me at

Thank you, Susan

I have included an obit for Henry Bartels (93098181). Not sure where you got info for his burial but it should be Tecumseh cemetery, Johnson County Nebraska

S William Boeka #74490140
S William Boeka, b Germany
This memorial is managed by CPR.
William Boeka is buried in Greenwood cemetery.
1900 Census; his parents are residing with him, his wife and 6 children:
Adolph Boeka, 79, b. 1821
Christine Boeka, 66, b. 1834
William immigrated 1882, parents followed 1888
There is no record of the parents on Find A Grave, and no obits in the Seward newspapers.
I'm giving you this info should you have other resources for locating the parents' burial and wish to pursue it.
Thanks, Kathy

RE: 74137220
Barb - Thanks a lot for cleaning it up - kudos for even knowing how to do that! Looks great now! And, yes, I didn't know about her being related to William Bradford until I got onto Ancestry. Very cool.
Thanks again for doing this. I knew that a stone existed because her granddaughter visited it in 1926 and wrote to my mother about it. So nice to see a photo of it!!!

Gerald Clark
I am looking for Gerald Clark, born about 1902, in Memphis Nebraska, to Earnest Clark and Mable Chase. He disappeared in the 1930's. Is there any chance the Gerald in Riverside Cemetery could be him? I would appreciate any information you may have that can answer that question. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Nissen Jensen
Thank you for your work. This is a family cemetery very dear to me. Nis Jensen was my g-grandfather and I was wondering where you got the Undkarl from? If there is a source that you used, please let me know. I have never seen that reference, as on the 1900 Census he is listed as Fred. We always referred to him as "Nis". Thank you.

Joseph Scott, Riverside Cemetery, Buffalo Co NE
Can you suggest a way to identify Joseph Scott at Riverside Cemetery in Buffalo County, Nebraska? We believe he is the son of David Irvin Scott...the husband of Minnie...and the father of Fanchion Sandalis and Lloyd Franklin Scott. We know he was living in Gibbon, Buffalo NE when his brother, John H. Scott, died in 1928 (burial at Mitchell Cem. Scotts Bluff Co NE). And we know he had lived in Buffalo County since 1885 when he was 21. But this Find A Grave site only has a death year and no more information. Would love to add information, but must be certain we have the correct person. If possible please email

RE: Add information
I would love to have you do that. My mother was an avid "genealogist" so I have a great deal of family history. I have other close relatives at Andrew Cemetery since my father was born at Friend. Would you be willing to transfer my father's sibling's and my great grandparents records also?
Thank you so much.

Barbara A. in CA
Fred Eikenhorst
I know removing him from the cemetery does not delete him. You told me you were trying to eliminate duplicates in that cemetery. I had just been informed by "The Busbooms" that he was buried there.

If your delete someone that has links the rest of the family many never get linked again.

I will delete my memorial as soon as the last of his children are unlinked from my memorial and linked to yours. I sent a second edit again today.

This is the unlinked daughter:
Find A Grave Memorial# 10995096
Hazel Irene Eikenhorst Lonsdale (1912 - 1998)*

I do NOT want your memorial transferred. I just want our families linked. He is the husband of a first cousin 2X removed to my husband.

There is a Kenneth E Van Ostrand (1925-2000) buried in Bradshaw NE and a Rev Kenneth E Van Ostrand (1925-2000) buried in York NE. Would someone please check this information to see if it is the same person? Could he have been creamted and split between the two cemeteries?
Thank you, Holly J Van Ostrand

James K. Lewis # 59393487
I see that you added information for him. I have found a Polk Lewis (James K Lewis) who married Sarah (Sallie) Marcum on 30 Dec 1888 in Doniphan county, Kansas. What is your source for his father's name and his second's wife's marriage date?

Looking for Caterina Katherina Deines.
I believe the above is my great-great grandmother and sister to Christina. My grandmother separated from the family when her daughter died In Bayard, NE; and son in law remarried.

She immigrated as a widow with daughter Elizabeth and her son Phillip Kniss 1890's to Lincoln. They lived 915 New Hampshire St. All children to Elizabeth and Phillip were born in Lincoln. Later Phillip took his family to Bayard as sugar beet sharecropper. His wife Elizabeth , my great grandmother, died during pregnancy. In Scottsbluff a year later the city directory shows him, his kids and mother in law. After that he remarried and stayed in the general area...greeley co. CO. Heard that his oldest daughter Elizabeth, my great aunt, went to live with the grandmother in Hastins NE area and also that she remarried but don't have any information further. My email address is
