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?

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 a Vermont Civil War buff, and am working on a project to identify the last resting places of many "old soldiers" who had ties to Vt. Adoniram McLenithan is one such patriot. 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

RE: McLain family
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. Before I arrived is when I looked up the graves on findagrave to see who all was buried there and that is when I saw the attached obituaries and it made me so happy!!! again, thank you sooo much!!!

McLain family
Thank you SO much for adding the obituaries to some of my McLain family buried in the Ord Nebraska cemetery (Alice McLain Payne, John Henry McLain and one of there daughters Marie Duemey)!!!! It was super exciting to find their obituaries attached and has helped me very much finding more family:) I just barely was able to find the family of Alice Payne (We never knew her maiden name or what part of Canada she was from!!!) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! You have been a super big blessing:)

RE: Missing mother

Thanks for making the corrections.

It may have been a typo at the time of Skyler's burial or an error of the plot ownership, but his last name should be Schamp.

And Etta's full name should be Maryetta -with maiden name of Peck

her parent's memorials are

father: 33148701
mother: 45703902

Thanks again!

Margaret Florence Frampton Haught
Find A Grave Memorial# 156935499. How did you figure out that Margaret's maiden name was Frampton? Death certificate, other? I have been looking for her for years, but always under the first name Florence. I originally had her married to an Isaac Lee?
