Brad, thank you for locating and posting the photographs of the headstones for Henry J Stinger and Sophia Stinger. I didn't give you much to go on, so it is impressive that you searched them out for me.

RE: Ionia Cemetery
It was Brewer, not Brewster. Thanks for getting back to me with your sources. Apparently the person who told me they were buried there was mistaken.

Ionia Cemetery
What did you use for info in entering the memorials for this cemetery?
I've been told that George Brewer b 1851 d 1896 was buried in Ionia cemetery. His wife Melissa Jane Warren Brewer b 17 Dec 1854 d 11 Sep 1918 and a daughter Nellie b 1897 d 1900 might also be buried there.
I don't know if there were any records kept of the cemetery before it's rejuvenation. So I don't know if there is any possibility of finding out if these Brewer's were actually buried there or not.

Thanks for recording this very old cemetery.

RE: Copyright Vilolations
Because of a problem of two photos....they were sent to me, I regret that they may have been copied from another location. Although I can't be sure, I removed them in order to maintain the integrity of the author. I have never knowingly used someone else's work and claimed it as my own. Because the two photos are in copyright violation, I will remove them. I apologize to the author and from this time on, will not use any photo's that I am not 100% certain of their validity. Please accept my apologies.

Hi Brad,
I just notice that you took a photo of a headstone at the Episcopal Cemetery by Santee, NE.
I put in a request but wanted to go ahead & ask if you could take a photo of his headstone for his memorial. I say that, really not knowing if there is one or not as I can't even say where he's at within the cemetery. Altho there's only suppose to be very few graves there (10). He's my Mom's cousin, thus, mine too. :)
Thanks in advance Brad if you can help me out.

RE: Amalie Bekowies
Hi Brad .... Yes, the spelling on the new stone is in error, I guess I should put that notation on the memorial {& I thank you for bringing this up}. PLEASE, keep checking me on this ... I also have photos of the original stones, taken in approximately 1935 (?) & given to me (by my friend & a descendant of the Beckowies Family), Mrs. Gertrude Judy, before her passing. I hope to find the time soon to put a copy of them up on the Shipley Family Cemetery site.
Anything that I might help you with, let me know...

RE: Binkley
"John Henry Binkley aged 72 years, died of dropsy, at the home of his daughter...., Mrs Frank Reed, near Hubbard, after a long illness The funeral will be held today from the Lutheran Church at 1 o'olock. Interment in the Emerson cemetery."

I can only go with the information in the obituary. I can't "move" him to a different cemetery with out a lot more information [I did check before I posted the memorial; and there are a number of references to an "Emerson Cemetery" contemporaneous with the year of his death.] You mention the first names of a number of people; unfortunately none of those names appear in his obituary. Perhaps his remains are where you believe they are. However, it's also not uncommon for a person to have their name [if this is indeed the case] in a cemetery where their body is not [for example, a man whose name is on his first wife's stone but who ends up being buried, and named, next to his second wife.] It's also not uncommon for cemeteries to be renamed or merged. But since I'm not on-site, I can only go with what the obituary says.

I know that sometime we all write things that convey a tone we don't really mean. I understand that you were upset. However, I can't help wondering if some things are better expressed in a private message. We're all in this to help each other, after all.

Thanks for your interest, and your help.

We Are Family
I am sorry I can't get it together to leave only one message!! I must need more coffee this morning. I checked the cemetery records and they say it was the Halverson parents and two daughters. But I don't find this information reliable as it was added by a non-family member years after. The sequence in the deaths, Mathilda & Baby Martin, Christpoher's mother and then Christopher makes the most sense to me. I also have two leads on living members from the Halverson family and am following up on those.

RE: Halvorson
Clearly states four burials. There is a lot of work to be done here as Mary Halvorson married Jake Flom. These connections need to be made. Many of them are in the Maskell Cemetery. I am puzzled that Mary & Jake Flom had a baby, Anna, who died at age 1. Where is she buried? I can't find her in Lime Creek, Lime Grove or Obert cemeteries. She would have been born around 1897. Maskell wasn't a cemetery yet.

We Are Family
I have the family history book. It was composed in 1977. It has the Fred Vogle & Christopher Halverson & Fred Miller Families in it.
A copy was left in the Obert Church. It includes family stories and quotes from Family Bibles.
This clearly states that Mother is Christopher's mother. It even tells of their first meeting when she too immigrates from Norway.
It was Mathilda who died along with Baby Martin during birth.
"Mathilda passed away in childbirth, as the result of the intoxicated doctor, who cut away the womb which came with afterbirth, of her son Martin. She bled to death. Her husband was left with 6 children" The first children were:
Marn, John, Christina, Mary, Carrie, Anne & Tillie. Christina had died in Chicago previous to this birth. Another baby died before and was buried at sea.

RE: Gilmer Family
Thanks for getting back to me Brad.

The Cummings you are talking about could very likely be the son of Cummings Gilmer b. 1779 and in the 1860 census Russell Co., Va. The census shows a son of Cummings,Sr. and Mary (Polly) (Browning)Gilmer: Cummings,Jr. b. 1844. Did you find in your research that being the year he was born?

Thanks for letting me know about the book. I will have to see if I can find it.

Again, I appreciate you posting your research for all to benefit from.
