Bio and Links
Bio Photo Beth (Jorgensen) Sparrow living in Polk County, Nebraska. Have photos and information on the following surnames: My father's line: Hanks, Fields, Jorgensen, Foster, Lindsay in Nebraska, Illinois, Germany and Denmark.
My mother's line: Seggerman, Regnier, Junker, Michels, Barber, Sickmon in Nebraska and Illinois, Germany, France, and back to England thru Mayflower passengers.

Have photos and some information on my husband's family: His father's line: Sparrow, Foresman, Richart, Hubbard from Illinois and back east. Currently trying to gather records for my husband's Richart line back to the Mayflower.
His mother's line: Patterson, Thompson, Waterman, Smith and Krieg from Illinois and eastern states.
I also have researched my step-mother-in-law's family: Smith, Steward, Flick, Hill, Hughes, Whitacre, Cross and Glass from mainly Illinois, Indiana and east.

Please see my virtual cemeteries for specific relatives in these lines, and please contact me if you are related to any of these families. I like getting in touch with distant cousins.
Let me know if you want me to transfer someone so you can add more info to a relative. If someone is not my relative, I will usually transfer. Please state your relation in your requests for transfer.
Polk county cemetery info came from the cemetery or from the city/cemetery records. Polk county marriage info comes from the clerk's office at the county courthouse.
I am an avid cemetery photographer fulfilling requests in Polk county and trying to photograph all cemeteries in Polk county (where I live). I will add partial obituaries; I will not add living (surviving) relatives of recent deaths.
IF you use my photos in an online tree, PLEASE give credit by saying "courtesy of Beth Sparrow". It's very annoying to see your own photo in an Ancestry tree with no credit given. And you KNOW it's your photo because the bird poop is in the same place.

Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to find Eugene's grave marker, take a photo of the marker and then post it on Find A Grave to help me with my request. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

RE: Thank you!
Thanks Beth,
I'd be happy to take responsibility for my family listings in this Cemetery. I grew up in that church and have been around that cemetery many times. In fact, my name is on the memorial cenotaph, as me and my family have a strong connection.
There are three family names, all of whom are close relatives: Cerny, Kropatsch, and Kresha. Even my mother is there, Delphine Jaworowski Kresha. My Dad is 92, lives in Osceola (Glenn), and his name is already there, just no date yet. :-) There are about 5 Cerny's, 11 Kresha's, and 7 or so Kropatsch's.
Thanks again,
Raymond Kresha

Thank you!
Thanks for looking keeping the St. Andrews Cemetery in good shape. Thanks for accepting the edits on the Kropatsches and Kresha, my direct grandparents and great-grandparents!

I was unaware how to obtain photo request. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
I do not know who was the manager, but they are welcome to have it. I just wanted a photo of the present stones.
Thank you. Sorry if I stepped on any toes.
Thanks to you, I almost quit helping others.
