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

I posted photos for the Mustapaa's. Arthur and George were in one family plot, and Matt Jr.and Matt Sr. Were buried in another. Matt Sr. was not in find a grave so I added him.

John Keski
Right next to John's headstone is Katherine Keski's headstone. Same headstone styles. On says wife and mother, other days husband and father. It made me think they were married. Katherine was not in finds a grade so I added her and her headstone photo. Let me know if you want to transfer her memorial over to you.

Henry johnson
Fyi Henry is buried next to John and Amelia Johnson. My guesses is that they are related. I just posted the grave photo for Henry.

Thanks for the edit for Kenneth Sorensen
Very much appreciated! I didn't add anything new, but I cleaned up the "looks" of the memorials.

RE: Schulze
Few people in the early days of the 50's knew the effects from the exposure to radiation. I doubt the connection had yet been made. I was told that by the early 60's, when the family started to ask questions, they were told that the records were sealed until the late 70's. Then came the matter of military records lost in the fire at a St Louis records center. (The St Louis issue is still brought up today for even the most simple requests for WW-II Military Records.

By the 70's, my aunt had long since moved on with her life. She re-married, started a new family, moved out of state, etc. She was reluctant to open old wounds by pursuing the issue.

My Dad, while he often spoke of the days when his brothers were young and alive, never spoke of their deaths. It was always difficult to get information from him on that topic. What little I was told came from other members of the family.

Thanks again!
