Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please take a moment to leave a flower for Mom, Shannon Howard.

I do my genealogy to honor my mother. She was very interested in our family history, both her own as well as my dad's side. She was always trying to peak my interest, to no avail. About a year after she passed away I was going through some of her papers and I was bitten by the bug.

My main interests are with the Kamery, Fahey, Howard, Hyde, Chrisman, Hill and John families of Nebraska, Missouri, Virginia and Olean/Hinsdale, New York. I have a special interest in Madison Square Cemetery in Loup County west of Taylor, Nebraska.

If you are interested in an original copy of any picture I've posted please contact me and I'll be happy to forward it to you.

Smith Memorials
I'd like to see if you'd consider transferring the following two memorials to me. Elizabeth Smith #41557073 and Stewart Smith #41557078. They are my husband's great grandparents. Thanks for your time and consideration. Laurie Davis Hannah #47087860

Gravestone marking

I believe that the date of birth for William should be 1856 rather 1876. Believe that inscription on Grave stone can be read as 57 years rather than 37 years.... If 37 is correct his first son was born when he 11. Please review

Albert Erickson was only 15 when he died. The woman buried next to him was his aunt, not his wife as the shared headstone seems to suggest. Teresa Cooney was married to Albert's uncle, Carl Albert Erickson (1879 - 1960). Carl probably bought the plot next to Teresa for himself but ended up moving to the west coast shortly after her death. He is buried in Los Angeles, California.

(Maiden name is : Showalter)

You have a note on the Memorial for Nancy Coffman to the Cooks Creek cemetery page

It is the wrong link, there is no Coffman listed there

The link you want is this one:

Good evening, I would like a copy of the picture of Edgar Royal Road's monument. I would use it to be posted on the Vermont Civil War Site. ( He was a Native Vermonter, and I am trying to identify where many of our "old soldiers have their last resting place.

Thank you so much; you will receive credit for it. Deanna French

Jennie Strohl 105380542
It seems she was married twice. 1st to C.E. Martin and then to Albert Mikkelsen. I believe her marker is in CA.
Maxwell Cemetery, Maxwell, Colusa County, CA

To add to all the confusion there is an entry for her under #140659610 also.

After Jennie's death, her brother James' widow married Jennie's widowed husband. Sounds like a soap opera, huh?

Walking the Past:
Hello my friend. I have not contacted you for
awhile. Hope this finds you well and happy.
Just wanted to let you know that I posted a photo and short obit that appeared in a newspaper for above. I found it in an OLD scrapbook of my Mother's. My mother went to school with a few Daily's in the sandhills. Not this Daily, but Verne and Lloyd Daily.
If you don't want this on your memorial, just let me know and I will delete it.
If you decide to keep it, you may want to switch the gravestone so that it is at the top.
Best Wishes,
Raymona # 47237415

Suggested change
My family records for Samuel W. Brown buried in East Union Cemetery, Union, Cass County, Nebraska show that he was born May 1, 1872. The headstone shows that he lived 1 year and 17 days. I believe if you look closely you will see the death year should be 1873 rather than 1879. Thank you so much for adding these people and posting pictures. It is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Sylvaneus Richard Stotts transfer
Thank you so very much for the transfer! I did some looking around on the National Archives, and learned a bit more about him and his family, and even about the nearby town where he was born. I sent you some edits for them based on what I found.
