Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been playing genealogy since about 1988 when my brother Jon got me infected.
It is only now in 2010 that I have chosen Find A Grave to help share the results of our research. Information is of no value unless it's shared and it will be my pleasure to share any data I have, with anyone needing that information.
My ancestral families of the past 150 years were centered around south central and western Nebraska, arriving there from upstate New York and western Illinois. My wife's families, in the same period arrived in southwestern Nebraska from upstate New York or Germany.
Please let me know of any way I might assist you in your quest for family information.
This will be a work-in-progress which will probably never be finished.

Charlotte A. Wrisley Memorial #: 98102521

Though not related, I am researching the Woodward family and have found documentation of Charlotte's death. 1890 is correct.

Carl Ivar Johnson
I am researching the crew members of the USS Tampa that was sunk 26 Sept 1918 of the coast of Bristol by a U-Boat. I have an ancestor who was lost on the ship. Your post in Find A Grave for Carl Ivar Johnson, who was lost on the Tampa also, was very detailed and I wondered what your connection was to him and if you could help me with my research.
My great uncle, William James Williams, was a crew member when the ship was sunk. I am in the process of identifying as many of the crew members using in the hopes of locating any living descendants of the crew. The 100th anniversay of the sinking is coming up in 2018 and I am hoping to work with the Coast Guard to include as many descendants in the ceremonies commemorating the event at the US Coast Guard Memorial at Arlington Cemetery.
You can contact me via email at
Thanks, Robert Knight

Hi Jim,

Thank you for the update on Wilbur.

I noticed I made a type-o. He was int: 20 May 1961 (not 1951) as I earlier typed.

Jim, thanks so much for graciously transferring my husband's great-grandparents, Barbara and Samuel Rayer. It is very much appreciated and it was nice to visit with you via email - and always nice to run into another McCook native! Kim

You're very welcome. I'm at the cemetery often, as my parents are buried there. In fact, I'll be there this weekend again. Chris

Fannie Brown # 54298668
Hi Jim,

Can you please transfer Fannie Brown #54298668 to me? She was the first wife of Louis F Eppich. Louis was the first child born to Maria Elisabeth Riegel and Christoph Adam Eppich. Louis and Fannie had two children. After Fannie's death, Louis married Jeannette A Becker. They are buried at Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, Denver County, Colorado, USA: Louis F Eppich # 154858500.

Thank you SOO much for all the transfers. My head started spinning today while I was working on the family group, both on Find A Grave and on the tree I created for the family.

It might take me a day or two to finish working on this branch of the family, but as soon as I am finished, I will be more than happy to transfer them back to you!

You memorial documentation made it easier for me to do my research! I really appreciate all you have done! In turn, I am able to help the genealogist in Sien, Germany. It feels so good helping others!

God Bless,
