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.|

Thank you so much Leah for all of your efforts. I can't tell you how much it means and now, we all know where this cemetery is. Happy Thanksgiving.

Hello again Leah,
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.

|Janet Y (Arney) Thiessen||RE: Pickard Cemetery Peter Schierling|
Hello again Leah and Thank you for attempting to fulfill my photo request for Uncle Peter.
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.

|maggie e.||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

Hi, thanks for getting back to me.
The references are
Meredith Lucien Bain - 29180437
His wife - Roberta Chester Matheny Bain -62347228 (Usually you see her listed as Chester and in the 1930 census it shows her as male. She was born in Alabama per all the censuses.)
1910 Census - Alabama - for husband Meredith and son D.C.
World War I draft registration for Meredith shows her as wife.
1930 Census - Winkler Co. Texas shows Meredith with the 2 boys (Jasper Matheny and D.C.) and divorced. The 1930 census shows Chester with the girls and "widowed."
I can do the editing and linking if you'd rather.
Thanks for getting back to me and for recording the deaths. It was helpful in my research,

Some confusion on his mother maiden name. Either Scott or Dennis. I've sent for his death record and should receive it in several weeks and should clear up this matter.
