Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, my name is Todd. I was born and raised in Chicago and I am the youngest of eight children.
I became interested in cemeteries about 5 years ago and discovered the Find A Grave web site about 3 years ago. I am very family oriented and perhaps that is why I find beauty and solace in the places we choose to lay our loved ones to rest. Cemeteries are a reverent, holy and sacred place we can go to remember the people we loved. Many people find cemeteries scary and approach them with trepidation but I think they are beautiful and each one is unique in its own way and a place that we can visit to honor and show respect to those people whom we shared out lives.
Each gravestone tells a brief story or history and is a testament to someone who lived and loved and continued the story of humankind's wonderful journey. Our loved ones continue to live through our memories and our stories of them. May God bless.

RE: Mamie Neiswanger
I'm so glad this worked out for you! By now you have received notice that I transferred the memorial to you so you can combine the information and links.

I cm across her obituary when I was researching family in Dakota City. (I think it's probable that our families knew each other. Dakota City was a small place in those days, and my great-grandparents and great-great grandparents are buried in the Dakota City Cemetery. My grandmother --born 1896--grew up there. They all belonged to the Lutheran church in Dakota City, where Mamie's funeral was held.) Whenever I come across a detailed obituary in the course of my research -- I have access to a lot of different data bases -- I copy it and try to match it up with a memorial, or create one if one doesn't exist, in the hope that it will help someone who does not have the same access to data I do. In her case I also got interested in seeing what family I could connect her to -- it's like doing crossword puzzles, only more fun!

I'm afraid I get to Nebraska rarely. But contributor Brad (#47031073) might be able to get you a photo of her stone (he's the contributor who photographed Henry Stott's stone) Many of the older stones in that cemetery are decaying though, so it may not be easy to identify. Her stone does not appear on the Nebraska Gravestone index of the cemetery, which makes me fear it may not be readable.

Mamie E. Stott Neiswanger

I'm transferring over to you a memorial I recently created for Mamie E. Stott Neiswanger. When I created it I did not find yours on a search (probably because burial was unknown and state of death was wrong -- sometimes that's enough to throw off a search) I only found yours after I went to link it to her mothers.

Since my memorial has detailed information -- cemetery, obituary -- I decided the easiest thing to do would be transfer it to you. You can copy and add the information to the memorial you created, or you can add your information to the one I created (but which you now manage). If you decided to copy the information you may have trouble deleting the the one I created -- if that occurs, you may have to transfer it back to me so I can delete it. Let me know if you have problems.

Sorry this sounds so complicated, but transferring the memorial seemed like the easiest way to transfer the information.

(I have also send a suggestion to the creator of her parents memorials that she link them as husband and wife)

Todd: I am an historical researcher for the Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society in Lincoln, IL. I am currently working on a book about Logan County during the WWI period. Christopher is listed as a soldier from Logan County and I wish to use a photo of him in the book. Could you tell me which young man in the photo you have place on his memorial page is Christopher? I currently have his military stone as a photo.
