RE: Houston Benschoter
Kathy, I found my notebook with the information about him. It was from the Falls City Library, Steele Cemetery Book, page. 688. So I added that to the memorial, if the just went by the cemetery registry perhaps if there is no stone he isn't listed? Oh, it would be under Baby Son, not Houston. Did you give me his name? Somebody had to, I only had Baby Son of John Benschoter. Luella

Houston Benschoter
Hi Kathy, I wonder if there just isn't a stone for him & not on the registry? Without digging through my records I'm not sure where I got the info, but it was probably from the library cemetery books. I sometimes randomly pick some to add hoping family will find them. That cemetery had so few added at the time. Hate to delete it without knowing he isn't there, especially now with family linked. :( Luella p.s. I'll try to verify where I got the info.

RE: Bohemian cemeteries in Valley Co
Yes, I can try to help you. I don't know about figuring out the book but I pretty much have the map figured out for the Ord Cemetery. Yes, there are a couple cemeteries out in the country. Let me know who you are looking for and I will see what I can do. My email is on my bio page.

Hi Kathy,

I put up a picture for Fred, memorial# 73787876. Let me know if you don't want it on his memorial and I'll remove it. It is a photo copy from a family book and is not a good picture. I hope to get some real photos when I get to NE, but that may not be for a while.

I don't want you to be stuck with a picture you don't want.

Chas M Williams Jr in Ord Cemetery
There is a child, Chas M Williams Jr. buried near Ferdinand and Bertha Williams. The stone says, 'Chas M Williams, Jr. died June 30, 1929 aged 10y 6 m 26d'
I'm sure that he is part of the family you are currently researching. If you add his memorial site, I will add the picture. Or you could contact me thru my email and I could send you the picture to use, with my permission.

Hekeler William in Ord Cemetery
There is a William Hekeler in the Ord Cemetery buried near Elizabeth and Henry Marks. Born 1879 and died 1957. There is no other info on the stone but if you add the memorial, I will add the photo.

RE: Marks in Hillside Cemetery, North Loup, Valley County, Nebraska
Yes, I took the book, did a spreadsheet, walked the cemetery, took pictures of everything out there, and posted everything I found to findagrave. Deaths in the last year maybe aren't on findagrave but those deaths were a long time ago. If you would like a copy of the spreadsheet please contact me at my email address shown on my bio page.
I'm not saying that there might not be some errors, but neither of these names show up anywhere.

Glad to add the updates for you. I am familiar with the Mira Valley cemetery as some of my husband's relatives are buried there.

Marks in Hillside Cemetery, North Loup, Valley County, Nebraska
You added two memorial sites to the Hillside Cemetery that are not in the original cemetery book. I have walked that cemetery and taken pictures of all stones. They are not in that cemetery, unless it wasn't recorded in the book and they are not marked by tombstones. Could you let me know where you got the information to enter them in this cemetery and perhaps I could do some further research?

Added by Starlight on Jul 17, 2014 9:41 AM

Are you related to these folks? We seem to be tracking many of the same people.

RE: Mariah Smith
Thank you Kathy for the tip. I think I will use Culbertson Cemetery-it appears to be the main one.
I was thinking last night you should stay in Texas to photograph cemeteries. I have lots of Brown relatives in Grayson County on my mom's side and I am having trouble finding where they were buried.
Thanks Lorrie

RE: Mariah Smith
Death certificates for Edward & Cora say they were buried in Culbertson Nebraska. So far they haven't been added to the "Culbertson Cemetery" - I am tempted to add them myself but wanted to confirm that this was the correct cemetery.
I have seen other entries in cemeteries based on what the obituary states but.....

RE: Mariah Smith
I know there was a V.H. in Howard Co who married an Alexander-Golda dau of Nicholas J-son of William & Maggie BUT so far no one has connected them to my line who came from PA to OH and then NE--Hitchcock & Red Willow counties.
The only tie seems to be Maria Hall whose gr-dau, Mae Eliza Smith m. Miles E Van Horn. Mae & Miles were my grandparents.
Good luck on your trip. Lorrie V.H.

RE: Mariah Smith
Interesting. Maria & Alfred came from Iowa, Clinton and rest of Nebraska family settled Hitchcock, & Red Willow. My dad was born in Culbertson(Hitchcock). I wish Hitchcock was closer to Howard. I have a 1965 photo of my dad's g-father Edward W Van Horn, his wife and their son and no one knows what cemetery it was taken in. So far it is not showing up on findagrave or any other listings I can find. I live in Oregon so Nebraska is not next door. Take care and good luck with your photography.

RE: Mariah Smith
There is really no info-just family notes. My gma, g-dau of Alfred & Maria said Maria was married & widowed at age 17, age 21, age 23 etc-I assume going by b/d of kids & marriage & census records that it would be Alexander, Leonard, & Taylor. Gma, aunt Marie her sister & Jessie Gaast Alexander all said the "husband's" name was James Taylor & they had one son: James or Jim. No indication as to what happened to Taylor, where he came from or anything about his son. Because we can find no documents, so far, with "Maria Taylor". I think most researchers think the James Hall Jr in 1856 is James Taylor who probably used Hall,Alexander then finally Taylor when he was teenager. This would mean there was prob no marriage just a child BUT then you wonder what happened to the child Marion Leonard? gma & Marie said there was a son Marion, Jessie G said dau who died young AND when I was going thru papers I found my G-grandma Susie (Wootton) Smith's birthday book and she had noted: Marion Leonard b. ____ 5, 1853. So many ???? Where do you fit in family?

Added by llh14018 on Jul 14, 2014 9:03 AM

RE: Mariah Smith
Three different members of family: my grandma, her sister and a dau of Alva Gaast (who married Alva Alexander) all stated that Maria was married & widowed 4 times before she married my g-g-gpa, Alfred. However, the records are elusive. The order of marriages had to be Alexander, Leonard, Taylor,Gaast,Smith which makes you wonder why her name was Maria Leonard when she m. Gaast. I think we will find a divorce from Leonard (or proof of his death) that came too late for a marriage to Taylor before he left the scene.????

RE: Mariah Smith
You're welcome. I reread a letter from someone in Iowa who suggested Illinois but it was 1985 and I didn't follow the lead. Our family all thought the husband was named Marion but... maybe that was his father or middle name. Still trying to figure out how James Taylor fits in.

Dick Zavgren
I could not find Dick Zavgren's headstone in the stated section. Possibly Dick Zavgren may be Arvid Richard "Dick" Zavgren (Section 11 Lot 25) Memorial #119987981. Just guessing.
