Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of the memorials I created, I did back in 2007, taking their name, dates, burial place from a Brown County, Kansas cemetery list. I'm not doing that anymore as others have taken up that process and are whizzing right thru it. May be close to complete for Brown county. As of late I've been working on updating my memorials one at a time. Looking for their obits, locating them in censuses and linking them to family.

There was a one-page article in the June 2011 issue of National Geographic about the number of people who have ever lived on earth. After much research American demographer Carl Haub estimated that 108 billion people had lived (and died) between 50,000 B.C. and 2011.
We've got a long way to go in remembering them all on Find A Grave. : )

RE: Censuses & obit
I would have never found that obit on Johanna - this is above and beyond what I ever thought - so again Keith - I sure do thank you. I have a request in to the member who set up Frederick's page so that I can connect and do a small bio. Also made a page for Johanna and found his second wife Bertha. It has been a great day. Thanks again.

Frederick Kerber
I believe that you found him for me --- after all of these decades. His son and family moved from South Dakota to IL where they stayed so this must be him - with those dates and location. Keith I sure do thank you. I feel I have FINALLY closed the search no on this branch. Wow - thanks

RE: Johanna
That is absolutely her and I can't thank you enough - I will set up a page for her. As far as Frederick - I lost track of him so it may be and you have given me something to work from. They only had one son, William Henry who moved to South Dakota, so I assumed that he went to live with them but have not found that - the dates match for what you have found. Again Keith - just can't thank you enough!

RE: lookup
Yes - sorry. His name would be Frederick (Fred or Fritz) W. (William) Kerber. She would be Johanna M. (Marie) Kerber. He was born May 1858 - not sure of death date. She was born March 2, 1867 and died Sept 1910.

I so appreciate this.

Who Would I ask?
Looking for a Great-Uncle & Aunt who owned a fruit farm near Hiawatha. She passed in 1910. Since Mt. Hope would be nearest to their property, I am hoping they are buried there. However, I could not find their names in the list. Would you happen to know if all the interments are listed? If not, is there anyway I can locate a list? Thank you for your time. My name is Sharon Patching and I am a volunteer for find-a-grave.

Thank you for the "heads up", I did not realize it was a duplicate, so it has been deleted.

It is great that there are more than one set of eyes on our memorials.
