Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in the study of genealogy, from my dad in 1993. Since then I have documented over one hundred thousand ancestors, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I have traveled all over western Europe and the United States, searching cemeteries, federal archives, court houses, genealogy libraries, church records and so forth. I've also retrieved from this site, thousands of gravesite photos & the priceless information found within. Thus I decided to submit some of my own, as a way to give back just a little for the benefits I've received. I hope you find my offerings useful. Richard Mann

Memorial# 57922560 stephen g. banner
I do not know you, nor do I know the late Mr. Stephen G. Banner. I have acquired a Confederate Memorial Grave Flag Holder for Corp. Banner of which has been long over due him for his services for what he fought and believed in. I have photoed the grave sight with a Confederate Flag Holder and a Confederate Flag that I purchased to honor him for his services. You may wish to bring the other photo of Mr. Banner back to the front page. If you wish for me to post it, I also have a closeup photo of just the Confederate Flag Holder along side of the headstone showing just the name and dates on his headstone, but you would first need to delete the lone flag photo of yours before I could but mine on. Let me know either way. Ronald

Daniel Gutzmer
You said in a bio for Daniel Gutzmer born 15 Feb 1824 "Daniel Gutzmer was one of at least two brothers who were born in Deutschland and came to Nebraska" Do you know the name of the brother?

And also "Daniel married, Wilhelmina "Minna" Korber, and together, this couple shared six known children." I can only find 5 children, do you have the names of all six?
Thank you
Chris Gutzmer

Hi Richard. If I remember correctly, I did respond to your message from last year. But I'm not sure. . . My memory is kind of shot from then as I was experiencing respiratory failure and waiting for a lung transplant. Well, I got one! I haven't been working on genealogy for awhile, as I have been mending from the surgery. Am currently in AZ (TX center in Phoenix) but plan to return home to Parkville, MO in the Spring. We will be making a couple of trips up before moving back, too. Was hoping to make at least one NE football gamed this Fall, but alas it is not going to work out schedule-wise.

Anyway, my GG grandmother was Mary Ellen Frazier Bullis, daughter of Josiah. She and Royal Bullis had 6 children before they divorced. He married again and had 6 more children. She married a 2nd time (Murphy) but no more children. Wilbur Ellis Bulllis, my great, was her oldest child and the family lived in Humboldt, Richardson Co. NE. Her mother, Polly Harm Patton Frazier, was divorced from Josiah, and she too is in Humboldt Cem.

I grew up in NE (Born in Holdredge, grew up in Lincoln, Lived in Omaha for 15 years after college). Retired to north of KC, where we are in the middle of family ----Columbia MO, Manhattan KS, Omaha and Lincoln + and G.I., Kearney, and Norton KS - and that is just my side.

Anyway, this note is just to connect or re-connect from last year.
Deb GBR!

RE: Portsche
Richard, I am a 40 year veteran of railroading and I track railroaders for several reasons, one being I published one book on railroaders along with short stories and picutres of them when I can get them. if you would like to have Gary added to the list would you mind sharing some of his railroad history with me for my upcoming book? my first book (Trackin' The Past) you can see the cover on although they are out of print. also on my findagrave Bio page you can see the book cover. Just like to keep their memories and stories alive...thanks, hope this helps with your question. My email is
