RE: Castor photos
Thanks again Brad! Karl and William are brothers and sons of Ivar J. Castor. I see you also took a photo of Viola Castor's gravestone and she is the wife of Karl Castor.

Castor photos
Thank you so much for taking the gravestone photos of my Castor relatives! Your efforts are very much appreciated. I have a Castor cousin still living in Sweden who will be very interested in the photos and birth and death dates on the stones.

William McColm
Thanks Brad for the photo!I was hoping it would have Dr. Wm. F. McColm, so I'd know for sure if this was the right memorial to link to the family. It is the same kind of stone that is SO hard to see the writing on. Glad you were able to find him! Luella

Jennie Brewer
Thank you so much Brad for taking the photo of Jennie Brewer's gravestone. I am looking for a Jennie Louise Wolf Brewer Smith who was about the same age as this Jennie, who also lived in Nebraska and died in November 1918. I'm related to her 2nd husband (Smith.) No one on has a place of burial for my Jennie so I was hoping the two Jennies might be one in the same but I don't think so now. Thank you again!

No, Brad, I don't know. It's in her husband's hands and since her funeral was just a couple of days ago, I doubt F-A-G is real high on his priority list just now. If I do hear anything, I will let you know.

Thank you for taking the time and braving the cold weather to get a picture of their headstone. I appreciate it. I only get up to the Nebraska area about once a year.

Marilyn Kenyon, Psy.D.
Petersen Family

Thank you so much for taking the photos of the Petersen family. My grandmother lived to be 101 years old. She would talk about her family from Iowa. She would write things down and do an oral history of her family, repeating and emphasizing certain names - in her own way trying to embed these people into our heads.

After she died, I wished that I had taped her history. Years later I started doing genealogy, piecing together her family notes. Remembering some of the names of the people for whom she spoke about. There was a picture of the Petersen children, but I really didn't know much about them expect for the pictures.

Then I came across the family burial of them. Suddenly these people whom she talked about so much became alive to me. It means a lot having photos of their headstones to match their pictures and the stories my grandmother told about them.

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.
