Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana

RE: William Stratton
No problem. I had that info also, but someone came in and started a long conversation I couldn't get away from to finish up. Couldn't find picture however. But, glad to be of help. Anytime!

RE: Andrews photos
Loren I appreciate what you are doing to remember especially our KIA veterans, and all veterans, also nice to have family linked when we can. Makes it more than just a name, rank and serial #. Luella

Helen A. Wisner Schulze - Correction?
Thank you for posting my Grandmother's grave site on the website.

Just one minor correction: Grandma's maiden name was Whistler, not Wisner.

Thank you again for everything.

RE: Fred Kaup
Thanks for the information on this! I'll have to see how I can find related to my Kaup's. I know there is a book floating around at the White Horse Museum, but I live out the Chicago area so I don't get to Nebraska more than once or twice a year and then am usually limited to Lincoln where my parents are. You can always reach me at:

Are Kaup's Related?
52302624 is for Frederick Kaup. Are you related to this branch of Kaup's? I believe most of the Kaup's in Nebraska are somehow related and my Grandmother was a Kaup. I can trace that family back to the 1700's... For some reason I didn't find this branch on my tree and wondering where I missed this. Thanks.

RE: Two lincoln heros need help
Howdy Loren, I think I sent a note about Eugene Wilson Smith. I didn't edit him and sister to the parents in Wyuka, but I can if you want. As for Jack l. Melvin, I found his father and family real close to Lincoln After a lot of edits, I think I have Jack hooked up. Also found somewhat of an obit for him. His mother Lura passed in California, but I can't find her on Findagrave. Anything else I can do for these two, let me know. Thanks. Kevin.
