RE: Stella Becker
August 9 looks to be as correct as I can get it. I have no other sources than the obituary, and I usually don't go digging much further than that.

It's very difficult to spend those holidays so soon after a death in the family. It reads as if her last months were difficult, at best. How wonderful that you have those memories!

Their graves are on the far east side of the cemetery, just about half way back, as the cemetery lays now. It's a beautiful simple collection of strong and simple stones, all in good shape. As you can see in the photos, there are only a few rows backing up to the wild tree border. That area is left with long grasses and untrimmed trees, and it leaves that area with a very prairie look, which is all this area was when she was born. It was only about 25 years from pure prairie.

I'm so glad that I was able to help you fill in some details for them. That's the best part of this whole experience: Sharing the clues that make our people real, rather than entries on a family tree. The fact that you can remember them is really a gift.

She didn't live a particularly long life, but she lived a good life and she loved and was loved. In the end, for what more can we really ask?

Warmest regards,

RE: Stella Becker
It's my pleasure. When I was trying to figure out the relationship of the people in this family plot, I came across her obituary, and it shows what a progressive woman she was. Add that to the fact that I lived in that area and have many relatives there, and it was too good to pass up. I had to pass it along, especially when I saw your touching notes on her husband's memorial.

If you check the top of your contributor page, you'll see a number of edits I submitted which will serve to correct the spelling of her name and link her up with her family of origin.

I'm glad that I was able to add some details to your knowledge of your Aunt Stella. The Dammans were a pretty tough and resourceful family. It makes it all worth it. :)

Just wondering if you know why your uncle was buried in Iowa when it seems that he spent most of his life in Nebraska and Illinois. Also, cannot find him in the 1940 federal census. I am connected through your Becker-Shank-Duncan line.

Enjoyed your bio on Dr Arnabar. Dr Arnabar was my g grandfather's neighbor when they lived on the Colorado river. His photo is in our family collection and I have always wanted to know more about him. Would love to read the newspaper articles you mention.

Glad to be of help. I have taken picture of all the headstones in Mudbrook and you are welcome to use them for yourself if you like.

RE: George W. Wallicks (both of them)
Both Edgar and Mary are in the Mudbrook Cemetery in Canton, Ohio. You should be able to find them in findagrave.
Have a great day. Maggie
