I love cemeteries, especially the old ones. Finding our ancestors in cemeteries is a fun way to say connected to our heritage. I was born in Seattle but my roots come from the south and east...ultimately from Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands. My first ancestor in the New World was with the British in 1610. My ancestors were on the first ship to found New Amsterdam in 1624. If we don't know our history, we don't know who we are.
Roden family at Crossville cemetery I was out taking photos and noticed a newer grave that belonged to Fosteena Hulgan Roden. She does not have a head stone yet, but she is next to Portland and Corene Roden. If this is your family I will be glad to place her where she belongs.
Thank you so very much for your persistence in taking the photos of my Uncle and cousin. Where is the cemetery located? I would love directions and/or GPS for our next trip to Nebraska. You went above and beyond on these two and it is greatly appreciated.

The information I have is for the location of the town of Pickard in 1890. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nekeith/1890gazk.htm
Pickard, the town, had a post office in the southern part of Keith county, 18 miles southeast of Ogalalla, the county seat. I have sent a message to the creator of the memorial asking him/her where the cemetery is. We travelled to Nebraska from Oregon, our home, in 2005 but did not try to find the cemetery then.
I will continue looking and if I hear back from the memorial creator I will follow up. Please do the same and Thank you again.
Harold Bower's I received a message from Find A Grave that you had added a photo for Harold Bower's but there's no photo of his marker. Did it perhaps not save? I was wondering if you would mind uploading it again? Thank you so much for your efforts-I look forward to seeing his marker. Sincerely-Maggie
