RE: 151329214 Victoria Schuman
Hi Sandi,
There is no tombstone for Victoria in the cemetery. There were tombstone surveys done in 1932, 1950, 2003 & 2013. And she is not on any of those lists.
Gail went back thru the original hand-written Sexton's list of burials, but no record of Victoria. The burial plot info does not match anything in our cemetery.
We can not say that she is definitely not in our cemetery, but we have no evidence of her burial here, & believe it is very unlikely.

RE: 151329214 Victoria Schuman
Hi Sandi,

I have photocopies of the cemetery records, which are not totally complete. The originals remain at the church. I had another member of our committee go to the original records to check. She could find no one with the last name Schuman (or Shuman) listed in either of our 2 cemeteries.

We are searching to see if we can find a notation that anyone was re-interred from that cemetery in Chicago. (thinking the notation on Victoria in the Chicago cemetery records might be for a different person & put next to Victoria's name in error).

I will get back to you again soon, after we do a more thorough search.

RE: German Farming Communities
Hello Sandi Thank you so much for taking the time to contact me with this new source of information.My first impression was that I would find little about my ancestors due to the fact that back then they (my Family) were all Catholic and stayed with their own as did the Lutherans.My wife is a Lutheran and comes from Hastings and this might be more helpful with her family. I will spend some time researching the site you pointed out.
My Bender family came from Germany in the 1850s and first settled in Marshall Illinois and then in the late 1860s came to Cornlea Nebraska and Humphrey Nebraska area to Homestead.

My mothers family (Ausdemore)also Catholic settled in Crofton Nebraska after first living in Ohio for several years.
Research on our ancestors is a never ending but very rewarding task. Thanks again for your input and I am curious how to ended up at my Find a grave profile. It could be you saw where I have researched thousands of Nebraskan's who died in World War II. Have a Wonderful day!. Loren Bender

RE: Frances P. Stover 153273188

That will work. Although for 116887335I am just going to ignore it. I don't think my Permelia Frances "Fannie" Hoy Stover who died in 1939 would have first been buried in Old Whiting Cemetery.

Thank You Again,

Baby Stover 153273240 (stillborn of Wm & Josephine Poland Stover)
Fred Stover 153230879

Thank You,

RE: 99600829 Frank A. Halstead
Correct no headstones. I have the documentation from Jane Judt (Historical Society) who has all the documentary records which I can forward to you including the handwritten notes and unpublished journal of the daughter RLDS Pastor (J.E. Butts) who attended the funeral of at least one of the persons in that plot showing where the persons are at in that section (no headstones). I'm in the process of figuring out how they are all connected in that plot (yes they are related). If you provide me your email address, I will forward you the email chain.
Here's my email rendered so it doesn't get picked-up by the search engine.

RE: hillcrest/Blevins
Thanks Sandi!
It's a process, isn't it? I started with family in Oakland, and making progress alittle bit at a time. Thanks for the good start! I will probably request more transfers as time permits for my husband's side. Also have a correction for an old neighbor, but I want to find his obit before I send an edit to you.
We will be in Decatur also, we might find ourselves at the cemetery at the same time! Are you going to the Alumni?
Thanks for all.

RE: Johan Burck 160238553
Hi Sandi K!
That is pretty neat! Yes, My grandmother's maiden name was Bürck, Marie Verna
She lived with my parents her last few years. I remember her brother Rudy (Rudolf) with fond memories, and even remember their mom with her accent.
Up until a year ago, some of the older Burcks told me there were just the four boys, including my grandfather. That made researching really frustrating until I stumbled across the obit on findagrave for this site. Wow. Where they wrong! 5 sisters!
I'm still looking for son Charley, who I suspect has some issues and needed family supervision.
I'm still looking for the burial information on three of the gals, Mary Catherine, married an Asmus, Hannah, married a Roux, and Sarah Josephina who married a Vanness or Van ness. These last two lived their lives in the Council Bluffs area, so I'd guess they are buried in that same cemetery, or perhaps one close by. If you see anything, keep me in mind!
Thanks again!

RE: Joseph & Lucina Butts
I will do that. Did you get the email about the Watsons?

Wish I had more time to be creative in my bio. I would like to have as much done on this before the Butts Bash in Spearfish SD
Thanks Sandy. If there are any of this line that you want to transfer, I will take them. I can still send you a note a time or two a year!

RE: Peter A. Ives memorial 148790673
Sandi, Thank you for your reply, and how considerate of you to give preference to the other member's earlier memorial. I have also contacted her. And, I also have encountered some of your same issues of unintentional duplicate entries. Best wishes, Yvonne

Peter A. Ives memorial 148790673
Hello Sandi, Thank you so much for your memorial pages. Peter Amos Ives #148790673 is my g-grandfather, the father of my grandmother, Jeanette Ives Boyll #19794049. (Btw, there is another memorial pg for Peter at #38369848.)First: Peter's date of birth often is seen as 1878, possibly due to the 1880 census, where he is age 2 mos., not 2 yrs. He was born May 24, 1880, as reflected in his WWII draft registration & other places. Second, I would like to request management of Peter's memorial page, or to have a link established to his daughter Jeanette at memorial #19794049, if that can be done going from father to daughter. Thank you, Yvonne (member #47992943)
