Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired businessman who enjoys genealogy as a hobby. I find that genealogy and "Find a grave" go hand in hand and its easy to do both at the same time and both are very rewarding.In adding Memorials for those in my family I have added memorials for many non-relatives in hope that it will help others as others have helped me. If I've submitted a relative of yours and you would like it transferred to you, just ask. I live in the Omaha metro area and thats where most of my photos were taken.Researching Bender, Ausdemore,Hittner, German,Ternus, Bockholt, Hatzenbuehler, Kramer, Wickelman and many others. Most of My family came from Germany in the Mid 1800s and settled in the North Eastern Nebraska German farming comunities and spread from there.In my research if I run across a grave of someone in the Military that is Killed in Action they get special attention and i try to find out as much as i can about them and put it on the Memorial. We owe it to these Heros and they should not be forgotten.I authorize anyone to use my photos for any reason."Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you." ~~~Princess Diana

RE: Irelan photos
You are welcome for the photos.

Normally I don't encounter snakes in cemeteries but this one was crawling, or should I say, slithering with many... and with the leaves falling and lots of grasshoppers it made for careful walking... ha ha.

Actually, I live in Twin Falls Idaho

MT OLIVET CEMETERY ST JOSEPH MISSOURI
I searched for your loved one yesterday. This cemetery is enormous. There are about 21,000 burials here. If you look at the photos for this cemetery, there is a map and you will see names of different sections. Each section has upward of 400 plots in it. If you could get the name of the section it would help. I don't have a map of plots and when I go there the office is hardly ever open so I can't access the map inside the office. I will be going back now and then and if you call the office at 816-279-5005 and get a section name and post it on the memorial page, someone should have a better chance of finding the marker. Directions or a location within the section could help as well. The office personnel don't want a person like me asking for the locations of a whole bunch of people....they just don't have time for it all at once.
I hope this will help you find your loved one.

Charles C Healey Jr
Hi Loren, I just uploaded the headstone for Charles and wanted to let you know that I also have pictures of two other Healy's that were buried next to him...I believe they are his parents Charles C Healy 1893-1973 and Alice E Healy 1896-1973.
I am new to contributing but will try to get them uploaded to the site if you are interested in them.

Hi Loren! Glad to see you're still active here on Find A Grave! Am hitting a brick wall - as I attempt to locate descendants (if there were any) of Raymond Lunsford Gilmore (my 2nd cousin, via the ATEN-STREMMEL families of NE.). What Nebraska resources might help - albeit that the gent died in MT.? His parents lived and died in Douglas Co., NE.
(i.e. #42871155 & #137103413).

Thanks,

Oh no. It loaded correctly. I'm not sure why it's showing sideways. I will check it as soon as I can.

Thanks

Hi Loren,

You're welcome, and thanks for adding the obit.

I also found his first wife, Mary, # 54647718. I did submit a request to link, but probably through her memorial. This, just in case you may wish to go ahead and link through Kendrick.

Thanks again,
Sheila

Loren,
It was my pleasure to get this picture. You are so welcome. Thank you for making these memorials that honor our military personnel that are no longer with us.

RE: Delmar Storey
I appreciate your response, Loren. Delmar was one of children born to George Washington and Frances Lee Glover Storey. He, as his siblings, was born and raised in Missouri and his parents are buried in the Powersville cemetery. He may have moved to Nebraska because he had a younger sister and two older brothers in Omaha.

His siblings were:
Baby Storey
1912 1912, either was stillborn or died shortly after birth and was not given a name
Marvin Storey
1913 1992
Thelma May Storey
1915 2004
Kenneth Storey (moved to Omaha)
1918 1950
Elonzo G Storey (Omaha)
1919 1990
Opal Storey (Omaha)
1921 2007
Glenn W. Storey
1929 1929, died shortly after birth.

The father, George Washington Storey, died in 1929 and his mother, Frances Lee Glover, married Charles Bryant and had two more sons. Charles had 5 children by his first wife.

I was delighted to see the newspaper article regarding the plane crash. Mother had always said he died as a result of a plane landing on top of his at the airfield, an act of sabotage. While the newspaper article does not state this, I assume it could be the truth but not something I would swear on. I will assume the article to be factual.

He had a young child, under two, I believe. His wife's name was Grace. I do not know her maiden name but did learn that she had moved to Kenosha, Wisconsin by 1947.

Thanks again for uploading this information to findagrave.
