The Wells came from her mother Elta F. Wells that was her middle name. I corrected the memorial and connected her to her parents as well.

Thanks again for fulfilling these photo requests. This has been very helpful. I wish I could go to Nebraska for a month and do reserch. I've been pretty lucky though in putting all of my Nebraska family members together. I am related to many last names in Nebraska. I live in Utah which Is huge into genealogy but quite honestly Nebraska has done an amazing job in preserving our pioneer ancestors. I have updated hundreds of find a graves in Nebraska. This is awesome to have these photos now in their find a grave's. Thanks for all you do in helping others. I hope your generosity in fulfilling photo requests never go unnoticed.

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...

Bertha Matthiesen X 2
Hello again, Brad,

Yes, there are indeed two memorials for the same Bertha - # 111241820 and # 111496106. I entered an explanation on each memorial in the bio section and hyperlinked the two.

I remember some time back digging into this quite a bit. It seems she had a spot in the family plot set aside for her, but she also purchased a single grave in another location in the cemetery. She is entered in both locations in the cemetery records, and no one I have been able to contact is sure as to which of the two graves mentioned is her actual burial spot.

In any event, hyperlinking two memorials was the best solution I could come up with for her (one would be somewhat like her actual burial place, and the other more like a cenotaph, but no one knows which is which).

It's a little unusual that no one in the family plot has an individual stone as this family was quite wealthy and could well afford them. I guess that's the way they wanted it, but maybe Bertha, who was the last surviving family member, didn't like that idea :-) . The back-story apparently died with her.

Thanks again, Brad,

Niels P. Andersen (1841-1905), # 103736608
Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Brad. There are two Niels Andersen's in that same block and plot, so I guess that is why the mix up occurred. I have requested a correction, so hopefully this will take place in the near future.

Have a good weekend ahead,

RE: Webb
Hi Brad, I apologize for not providing details and thank you for checking. Frances Webb on your memorial is the same person as Frances Lillian (nee Ueding) Webb Dickison on the earlier memorial. I know this from chasing down my family tree and it took me a look or two to figure it out, but once you see it there is no guesswork involved. Frances Ueding first married James A Webb, who shares the grave and grave marker with her. (The initial "A" is for Albert.) After JA Webb died, she married Bob Dickison and took his name but apparently held on to her spot next to James Albert Webb. Copied below is information from Frances's Social Security record. Since the other memorial was entered first, I suggested that you delete yours. On the other hand, you have a great photo of the grave marker, so it would be nice if you could add it to the original memorial. Regards, Charlie

Birth Date: 7 Apr 1917
Death Date: 8 Jun 2006

Father Name: Joseph Ueding
Mother Name: Emma L Hansen

Oct 1964: Name listed as FRANCES LILLIAN WEBB;
29 Apr 1983: Name listed as FRANCES L DICKISON

Good morning Brad,

Thank you for sharing the photographs of the headstones of Helen, John, Charlie, Gotlieb, Heinrich, Hugo, Marie, Katharina and Karl Rabe. Many of the birth dates were not on the memorials so your photographs have helped solve the mysteries. These photographs are greatly appreciated. Have a great week and enjoy the end of the winter season.
