Bio and Links
Gary and I live in the Grand Island area.
Wilma was born and raised in Alexandria (Thayer) Nebraska. Gary was born in Sutherland (Lincoln) Nebraska, but was raised in the Kearney (Buffalo) Nebraska area.
We work on this project together.
I think our first entry was made in 2002 or 2003. I did not know at the time what valuable toolFind A Grave was so did not get active until later in time. And when I finally started again, I was addicted.
Our journey was short lived to due an illness. About three years ago, we got involved again. The growth of the volunteers in that short was a pleasant surprise. The volunteers in this project are truly unique.
If you see a relative that I have added please feel free to ask for a transfer. Unless they are in some way related to us, they will be transferred. It makes me feel happy when a family member manages a family memorial.
I was once told that within three generations a person is lost or forgotten so having a record is so important and I am honored to be a part of this
Please feel free to use any pictures/information that is on our page, credit would be nice, but not necessary. There are memorial that have pictures that are not mine, so please honor/ask before using them.
If you are wishing for family stories/histories that are not posted on FAG, please feel free to contact us and we will share what we have with you.
Some of our Family names are:
Luther, Farley, Tyson, Davis, Baldwin, Farquhar, Lizer, Chapman, Diggins
Knigge, Komrs, Messing, Kinzie, Rosicky, Collicott, Pitts, Dietz
To name just a few.

James Kinzie
Hello, I have a great-grandmother who's name was Sarah Ann Kinzie from Gage,Nebraska that married James A. Clary. All records indicate that she was the daughter of James and Lydia Kinzie. But James Kinzie's Find A Grave doesn't list a daughter named Sarah. Although there is a daughter named "Mesdames Clarey." I wonder if that could be a misprint. And where that source of information originated? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kinzie records Avoca Wisconsin
I have been searching for the burial site of Martha Anderson Kinzie wife of Henry G. Kinzie ) of Avoca Wisconsin. I visited the Avoca Cemetery about 5 years ago. I found Henry's grave and that of his 2nd wife ( Rebecca). There is also a grave for James Kinzie. NEAR that grave is a simple stone with the name " Mother" inscribed on it. The stones are white and I assume were made in the 1860's. Martha Anderson Kinzie passed away about 1860-1864 and Henry married Rebecca in late January 1864. I am wondering if the grave marked " Mother" is that of Martha Anderson Kinzie. Can any one help ??

Hi Wilma,

I would be more than happy to transfer his memorial to you. I believe that family should be with family.

Take care,

There are some Kinzie family members that are buried in Silverbrook Cemetery in Niles Michigan.
You can look them up on Find A Grave. I suspect they might be part of your family. I will send a more detailed email.

Tyson brothers transfers
After I transferred Dale to you I got to thinking that he may be related to me. But just now I transferred his brother Darwin to you, since they both share the same headstone. And I can't really pin down their relationship. I have other Tyson's in my records. Both my Mom and Dad came from the Nebraska sandhills. I did not know any other of the Tyson's.
Thank you for all your fine work on this site.
Best Wishes,
