Photo Request

I just want to thank you for fulfilling my photo request at Coleridge Cemetery. I find it funny that these two sisters (maiden name Meyer) married men with the last name Meier... and they were not the only siblings to do that within that family.

Thanks again.

I am paying it forward and fulfilling photo requests for others over the next few weeks...

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to a huge favor for me - taking pictures of my loved one's graves. I never would have seen them otherwise.

William H Rager Photo
Thank you for the photo of William :) - It helps in my 'quest' to find "my" great great grandfather William H Rager! .... I've got to research the stone info to see if i can discern if this is him.

Thanks for the great headstone photo of Henry, Sophie, and Rudolph Lange. It helps quite a bit as I had no idea there was a son(at least I assume he's a son)named Rudolph! Oh well, more work for me. I appreciate your time!

I just saw you book "Aisle of the Forgotten Graveyard". I was curious what this book is about. Is it about a certain cemetery and the burials there? Is it a fictional mystery?
Just curious.

RE: Amalia Armbruster
Amalia Armbruster married her third cousin, Josef Armbruster in 1871. The other names on the plate are three of their 11 children. The one that you think is "Mathilda" is actually "Mechtilde" which was Amalia's mother's name.

Thank you for the good work.

Thanks for trying. I was just trying to find him so I can link him to his wife. I will check out the cemetery this summer when her stone is put up. Thanks

RE: Greenwood Cemetery photos
Surprisingly, both of my parents, and all of my grandparents and great-grandparents are from the Knox, Pierce, Wayne and surrounding county areas. I currently have over 65,000 people connected in my family tree. If you are rooted in the area, possibly even you! I don't get back there but once a year at best, so I really appreciate your work in the area. May I have your permission to use your photos on

Hello Brad,
Thank you so much for the excellent detective work that solved the mystery of Louis's gravestone location. I truly appreciate each and every photo you have taken. I know they are not easy to find. Sorry for the delay on the thank you. I hope all is well with you and yours.

St. Wen's in Tabor
Heh Brad, just checking in, hope you had a good summer, It looks like someone has been busy taking photos at St. Wen's which is great, I am almost done adding the 1930 WPA Survey, have received numerous requests for more info, and some corrections, but heh that's part of the wishes, DC/Gilly

Thanks for transfer of Tony Sears in Yellow Smoke
I appreciate this--and also I thank you for the "flower" you added (that is now in my scrapbook too). It was kind of sad that his mother died just a few days after he did.

RE: Elisabeth Hochstein
Hi Brad,

I sent to Hartington Library for her obituary but I have NO doubt that Elizabeth (Foerster) Hochstein is the wife of Joseph Hochstein

and that the biography was incorrect. I also changed her name from Elizabeth to Elisabeth. The 1880 census has her name as Elisabeth.

My Elisabeth was born June 15, 1840 and died September 5, 1904.

Thanks so much!!!

RE: Elisabeth Hochstein
Elizabeth (Foerster) was born June 15 1840.

I got her death date from a book entitled FAMILIES OF SS. PETER AND PAUL, pgs 115, 116. It is possible they typed the wrong death date (September 9, 1911) because the birth date matches yours and she was not married to Anton.

You wrote: The other has dates of 6-15-1840 to 9-5-1904 so neither DOD matches the memorial.


I'll change the dates to match yours but leave the bio as it is and and (sic) after the death date they have.

I'll send for an obit.

Thanks Brad.

RE: 125081725
Hi Brad,
This is the third time I have tried to answer your email. We are having trouble with our server, I guess. At any rate I will try to be a clear as possible.

According to Esther Scott Sinclair's husband, two sons and one granddaughter, all three have written in their family records that Esther Scott Sinclair was buried on the South Dakota bluffs overlooking across the river onto River Sioux Park which Park was/is in Iowa. Mildred Sinclair Nolan tried to find the graves for us since she remembered her Father, George Sinclair taking the family many times to visit her grandmother's grave. We were unable to find the grave site due to time and weather taking its toll. Trees had grown and died, grass and soil blowing had changed the character of the soil. Ken and I were very disappointed to be unable to pinpoint the site. We wanted to have it marked. Mildred was our last hope. The others are all gone. She only searched in South Dakota, nowhere in Iowa.

Nowhere on the findagrave site do I see a reference to burial in Iowa. Do you have an obit I have been unable to find?

One other item: Do any of you know where Sioux Point, Dakota territory was located in 1860s and 1870s. I have references to that landing spot.

Thanks for your concern for accuracy. I share it too.

Incorrect picture you posted
You posted the entry to St. Michael's Cemetery in Hartington, Nebraska on the St. Michael Cemetery in Coleridge, Ne. This should be corrected.

RE: Kid Gallagher
I just drove over the hill through the maintenance site and into the cemetery. I can't say that is the particular stone. I intended to say that it is a representative one. There is no real way of knowing which is which without a map and the display board on the site only lists names, sometimes prison numbers and death dates. All of the graves with names on their stones are photographed and on

RE: Susan Fandrich
I knew Susie, Marge and Lawrence when they all lived here. Marge is a sweetheart. Her son, Donnie is buried there also. He was originally buried in the Nimrod cemetery. But after Susie's accident they had her buried there and came back and got Donnie also. Donnie died in an accident too, I think it involved a motorcycle if I remember right. Lawrence was a great horse shoe player, had quite a reputation here. (Even on his stone, lol) Susie was a very beautiful woman. Everyone thought she could have been a great model if she had gone for it, but wasn't interested I guess. She had the body and the brains and could have been very successful.
After she married Fandrich (First husband was Milbradt) she kind of went off the radar. He got her to move away with him down to Iowa and we didn't see much of her after that. It was kind of the general opinion that he was a little jealous of her closeness of her friends here. Everyone loved her and made over her, and we think he just wanted away from it.
When they had her funeral down there, it was packed with people from Sebeka and Nimrod.

I'll see if I can find an obit or write up of the accident in the local paper to post to her memorial.

Jorgenson photo
Thanks, Brad, for the newer photo for Mr. Jorgenson. I noticed the older one disappeared. What a relief!
Hope you're having a wonderful summer. I am so grateful for all the photos you've done at Bluff View and other cemeteries. Linda
