RE: Paul Lambrecht # 169792643
I like it. We'll stick with A. until further verification.

WWI data can be off depending on who wrote out the registration. This looks like someone filled out the form for Paul.

Paul Lambrecht # 169792643

Thank very much for sending the edit's to Paul's memorial.

I see that sometimes his middle name is given as Adolph and other times (such as his WWI draft registration) it is given as August. Do you have something that clears this up definitively?

I appreciate your help greatly.

RE: Omaha obits
The Greater Omaha Genealogical Society transcribes obits and provides a "list" of the obits on their website. You hire them to research an obit or do the research yourself in the archives at the downtown library in Omaha. I pay an annual fee to access obits online through I have found this resource to be well worth the annual fee. Hope this helps!

RE: Isa Brickner
Hi KB. I think it best to list the truth as we know it. What is, is. There used to be shame in a too-soon baby, but it was long ago. We don't judge her anymore. I've run on to quite a number of my ancestors who got frisky too soon. Nature is powerful. But do as you feel moved. But as for me, I'd put the known date. Keith

Thanks Kathy for the guidance on the Wozniaks. I had not know where they were buried. I also linked Floyd to his parents. Keith in Omaha.

Frank Graus FAG #13778926
I have located the Oklahoma, Wills and Probate Records, 1801-2008 for Frank Graus. I noticed on your Find A Grave #100793828 a note regarding Frank "Other children: Frank (b.~1871 OH, may have died in OK." According to the Probate Record he died on or about June 21, 1912 at his home in Custer County, Oklahoma. His Find A Grave #13778926 is a problem; the birth date is that of my 2nd Great-Grandfather, James M. Conley. Vina Conley Graus was my 3rd Great-Aunt. Vina died in 1935 in Clovis, Curry, New Mexico; her obit has been added. I am still trying to find record of who is buried next to Vina. If you have any comments about the death and burial of Frank Graus, please let me know. I hope this is a help to you!

RE: Dobberstines in Greenwood
Both are listed on the cemetery records but I was unable to locate a headstone for either. I will try again this weekend to look as I was in a hurry yesterday :-)

RE: Omaha obits
I don't know which memorial you are referring to but there are Omaha Area Obits online by Word Press. Just put Omaha Area Obits in your search engine and the link should come up. It is just an index.

Math is off ..or is it me?
Memorial# 74617501 Created 08-Aug-2011
What is the source of the "1930" date of death?

**Thank you SO much for your time Ms. Burr, spent creating memorials. Your work allows so many of us to connect with our families we would never other know. Especially with my lineage of immigrants from Eastern Europe. I was at a dead-end for the longest time, until stumbling on a record of yours. Then another, and another. My sincerest gratitude for your time and effort put into this. You Make A Difference!**

My query on this memorial is,
data provided states "Died >1930 Ashton, Sherman, NE",
but the terrific article provided by Carolyn Dennis Kress
lists him as 105-years old, and gives his birth date.

RE: Atlanticia Smith FAG #62807009
Thanks for your reply, Kathy. A cousin of mine looked into her - she has an Ancestry acct and I don't - and she found that her name was indeed Atlanticia - go figure. Maybe she shortened it to Atlantic - I would have! My cousin found that her maiden name was Jenkins, so it looks like she was probably English or Scottish.

Thanks for your help and for the transfer!

Atlanticia Smith FAG #62807009
Hi Kathy -

I recently found your Find A Grave page for Atlanticia Smith, who is my g.g.g.g. grandmother. She was the mother of my g.g.g. grandmother, Lydia Smith Stephenson, who named one of her daughters Nancy Atlantic Stephenson. I noticed on the plaque for the Kelsay Cemetery (where Atlanticia is buried) that her descendants spelled her name Atlantic, not Atlanticia. Since my g.g.g. grandmother named her daughter Nancy Atlantic - and the plaque lists her name as Atlantic - I'm wondering if Atlanticia's name is really Atlantic. Do you remember why you put Atlanticia?

Thank you -

RE: Jablonskis in St Mary's, Elyria
OK, thanks Kathy! I appreciate your help. Stanislaus and Marianna shared the same marker so the photograph you have will work. I have some dates for Stanislaus somewhere so I will have to dig them up. In case you're wondering, they are my great-great grandparents. Again, I appreciate your help and your taking the time to take these photos.

RE: McLain family
Hi Kathy,
How are you? I had a quick question. Is your friend from Ord have more of the newspaper articles available to her than is on the online archive?

RE: obits
Hi Kathy,

No I haven't sent you any obits for some time. I'm working on another project but will be sending hundreds more one of these days. I will email them to you as you requested. Enjoy the cooler days.

And another thing...
Are you related to W.W.Burr, the dean of the college of agriculture back in mid-last century?

Added by Starfishin on Aug 12, 2016 11:47 PM

RE: Cahill(s)
Just occurred to me -- you know you can get all the issues of the Ord Quiz online? (It's how I found out that my mother broke her arm at an entirely different place and time than I thought -- and Fred Cahill was driving!) You can find it here:

I've found it very searchable -- but if you're not sure exactly what years you're looking for, you can type the name + Ord Quiz into a Google seach and you can usually get a hit (I've found it great fun -- my mother had to take a year off from medical school, which she spent teaching high school chemistry in Ord. But I didn't know that she also led a Blue Bird troop -- and the Ord Quiz dutifully reported on their meetings! Not much got past the Ord Quiz!)

I am asing if I may use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave memorial page, to be posted in the Vt. Civil War site? (
You would receive credit for this.

Thank you for your consideration

That is so cool and I'm sure you have blessed so many people by doing this!!! Tell your friend thank you for me!!! I actually got to visi the Ord cemetery on my way through Nebraska a little over a week ago and was able to visit all the McLain graves there.
